Fascinating Facts Around the World Famous Casino Game

by Nitya Jain Posted on 25 Aug, 2020

Is Roulette the first thing to pop up into your mind when you think of visiting a casino? So now you know that it isn’t referred to as the queen of casino games for no reason. The game is still successful in turning heads, whether you visit casino for recreation or you are a seasoned professional. Before discussing the origination of the world famous game, let’s read a few facts around it.

  • The French meaning of roulette is a ‘small wheel’ but several historians believe that the game may have been inspired by a 17th century English even and odd spinning wheel and ball game called Roly Poly.

  • Did you know that your chances of hitting the same colour 10 times in a row is just 1 to 1024? So, next time a red number hits, it doesn’t mean a black one is next. One of the known incidents took place in a Bristol’s casino in England where a person hit red at least 36 times in a row.

  • It is quite interesting to note that number 17 and 22 are most common in roulette. Did you ever wonder why? It’s quite straight. If you look at the machine, the two numbers are centrally located. Interestingly, the number 22 also crops up in popular culture. The most famous example of this is ‘Casablanca’, one of the first to feature the game of Roulette and the scene is memorable for a number of reasons. The wheel used in this flick was rather biased as it enabled Rick (played by Humphrey Bogart) to help a Bulgarian refugee win a substantial amount of money. Today, roulette wheels are unbiased.

Taking a Trip to History

The world famous wheel was invented by a French physicist, mathematician named Blaise Pascal. Another fun fact, Pascal wasn’t trying to invent the casino game rather he was trying his hands at preparing a perpetual motion machine. The laws of physics said it was impossible to come up with such a machine that would operate without drawing energy from an external source. Pascal’s experiment failed, but his efforts gave birth to one of the most popular casino games across the world.
