Roulette is a well-known gambling game based on the principle of wheel rotation with numerical segments. She is called the “queen” of the casino. The emulator is offered by all entertainment establishments with board games of chance. Initially, a special mechanism was installed in the ground halls. The advent of Internet technology and the development of programming have contributed to the emergence of even more interesting options for virtual clubs. The advantages of a wheel with a random stop of the ball on one of the numbers can be assessed on the demonstration model in free mode.

History of roulette

The emergence of online slots such as the Fruit Cocktail slot machine is well known – they appeared relatively recently. However, the invention of roulette is a moot point. According to one version, it was invented by scientist Blaise Pascal in his attempts to create a perpetual motion machine. Another theory suggests the spread of the first analogue in Chinese monasteries. The game allegedly helped the monks to have more fun in everyday life.

A roulette wheel is a rotating horizontal wheel. It is divided into segments with numbers from 0 to 36. All numbers from the unit are on a red and black background (the color changes alternately, and the numbers themselves are scattered). Zero – on a green background.

The appearance of roulette in gambling houses dates back to the middle of the XVIII century. In 1842, brothers Francois and Louis Blanc introduced an upgraded version of the wheel of fortune. Instead of two sectors “0” now became one. Then there were rumors that the brothers made a deal with the devil, because the sum of the numbers in the fields – 666.

The French Revolution of 1789 gave impetus to an even greater spread of entertainment. The game “migrated” to the American continent with the escape of government officials and elites. The former rulers popularized both versions (with “0” and “00”).

Types of roulette and their features

With some individual variations, several versions of the wheel have been developed. The creation of digital simulators is based on well-known classic variations, sometimes supplemented by original solutions. Basic types:

  • French;
  • European;
  • American.

This is an interesting (and with a competent approach – profitable) kind of gambling entertainment. Thorough knowledge of the rules and understanding of strategies significantly increases the likelihood of remaining in the black. Russian roulette is also known in history. At parties, she uses a toy revolver and bullets. Participants take turns aiming their weapons at themselves, checking their luck.
