History & Stories
The origins of the game
The origin of roulette is often attributed to French mathematician Blaise Pascal – but incorrectly. It is generally assumed that 17th-century Italy was the country of origin. In Meyer’s Encyclopaedia, Big Roulette is referred to as Italian Roulette at around the year 1900. The actual roots of roulette can probably be found in the medieval wheel of fortune.
Roulette arrived in France, where Louis XV tried in vain to ban it, during the 18th century. In 1806, Napoleon Bonaparte allowed the game of chance only in the gaming houses of the Palais Royal in Paris. The rules for today’s game essentially developed in France. The croupier launches the ball on the wheel against the direction of rotation. Bets may no longer be placed after the announcement “No more bets please.” The rules of the game are almost identical worldwide.
The attempts to ban the game may have been one aspect that helped it gain such prominence. From Russian author Dostoevsky, who fell for the game of roulette and wrote his novel “The Gambler” about it, all the way to films in which the roulette wheel spins. People find roulette quite fascinating. Physicist Stephen Hawking put it like this: “All the evidence shows that […] the universe is a great casino, where […] roulette wheels spin on every occasion.”
