It was invented by a mathematician named Blaise Pascal and the game became truly popular in the 1800s thanks to the fact that it became one of the most popular casino games. The game we know today, with the "0" added to the wheel, was originally created by Louis Blanc in 1842, which was added so that the house could gain an advantage over the players.
The real popularity of the game came later, when Prince Charles and Louis Blanc founded the Casino of Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo was the only place where you could play roulette and the casino of Monte Carlo was such a highly regarded casino, that roulette also became a classy and exclusive game.

The wheel is flat on the table and has a total of 37 numbers (in the European version) and corresponding pockets. The wheel is spun in one direction and a small metallic ball is spun within the wheel in the opposite direction. Finally, when the wheel and the ball slow down, the ball lands in one of the pockets
The layout of roulette is where you place your bets. The layout features a variation of betting options represented visually. All you have to do is put a chip on one of these options to place a bet on where you think the ball will fall land.
As you can imagine, with all the numbers involved, there are a lot of types of bets in roulette. You can bet on individual numbers, on color, on even numbers, on odd numbers, on a row or a column of numbers, on one or more of the three thirds of the table, etc. You are likely to learn more about the ways in which you can bet by actually playing, however, here are some terms that will help you as you play.
"Complétez" is a bet on all corners of a number on which you have already bet and won, for example, if you're talking about the number 29, you would place the chips in all corners of the number, which, altogether would give you a split bet on the umbers 29, 28, 25, 26; 26, 27, 29, 30; 29, 30, 32, 33 and 28, 29, 31, 32.
"Doublez" is similar to "Complétez", again you can place this bet when you have previously placed a bet and won. "Doublez" means to repeat the previous bet, but with double the stakes.
There are some betting terms that represent a combination of bets, some of these include Orphans, Orphelins, Finales a Cheval, etc.. For example, Orphelins means to bet on the numbers 1, 20, 14, 31 and 9.
Types of Roulette
There are currently three main types of roulette that are played in casinos: American Roulette, French Roulette and European Roulette.
American and European Roulette are almost identical except for the fact that the American version has both a "0" and "00", while the European version has only a single "0".
French Roulette is the original roulette and shares the single "0" on the European version. The main differences are the betting area itself and “Partage” rule, which states that if the ball lands on zero, the players loses only half of their chips.
