How Online Roulette Got Its Start

Aug 28, 2008
Roulette was first formed in France in the 18th century. At first the roulette wheel was believed to be mix between the english games which had wheels (Roly-Poly, Ace Of Hearts and E.O.) which were Italian based board games.

In the French Novel La Roulette, ou le Jour you can find the description of the game roulette in it's current form. This novel was written by a French author named Jaques Lablee and he described a roulette wheel in the Palais Royal in Paris in 1796.

In the novel as early as it was, it included the description of house pockets. It was in 1801 that this book was published and a reference that was earlier published in 1758 which was published in regulations for New France and it banned the games dice, hoca, faro and roulette. Around 32 years later in 1843, Francois and Lous Blanc brought the single 0 style roulette wheele so that they could compete against other top casinos that were offering the traditional style of wheel that had single and double zero house pockets.

In the early 1800's roulette was booming and spreading all across the United States and Europe quickly becoming the most famous and favorite of casino games. Oddly enough though, what became to known as the American wheel even though it originated in France. It was also around the early 1800's the the game arrived into the United States and it quickly started becoming a second favorite.

For literally hundreds of years, the only way to play casino games was through an expensive built casino until the internet was introduced and once the internet started booming as more people started using it, Roulette along with other famous casino games were put online which caused a drastic increase in players and revenue. It was in the early 1990's that online casinos started popping up on the web and while they weren't very many to choose from, the few that did exist were recording skyrocketing profits.

Once companies saw the advantage of owning an online casino and while there weren't very many out, players started seeing more and more come up as time went past and after a good time online casinos was a huge trend and today in just about any online casino you can find hundreds or thousands of players playing online roulette at once. Roulette taking to the web made gamers needs met much easier since they didn't have to leave their home and at this time this was a huge deal because online competitive play changed the face of how Roulette was played.

Today though, online roulette is everywhere and is up there in the top rankings along with Texas Holdem as the number one ranked and most popular games on online casinos and still rakes in untold amounts of cash. Online roulette all started with the idea that people would never have to leave their homes and still be able to to play online with other players in a less strict and safer environment.
