Online roulette has a short history as it has evolved with the net, but a long
history with it's relationship to the classic casino game. Roulette
may be considered a soothing game in the gambling circuit. A nice
slow pace tends to attract subdued and quiet, and by nature of this
quality, a more civilized crowd. In Europe roulette has an association
with tuxedoes and well dressed women; the air is that of grace,
nobility, elegance, a million synonyms more. The exact origins of
the game are not exactly known. With its popularity arising in the
mid 18th century in greater Europe, some say the inventor is none
other than the famed mathematician and early computer mind Blaise
Pascal. If this is true, then the game has truly come full circle,
as the new wave of players log on to try online roulette.
Strangely enough the roulette wheel has become one of the most fixed representations of gambling throughout the world, without the game ever becoming all that popular in America. Perhaps to say that is strange is culturally centric, as its popularity is unquestioned across the pond. There is a difference between American and European roulette though, and it lies in the wheel. An American wheel has both a 0 and a 00 (double zero) thus creating a higher house advantage, and discouraging many. Single 0 wheels may be found in North America, but often require an unreasonable minimum bet. Online roulette wheel's may be either American or European, but of course this only matters if the online casino keeps it's odds straight.
