Below is a short extract from ebook:
The first form of roulette was devised in 17th century France, by the mathematician Blaise Pascal, who was supposedly inspired by his fascination with perpetual motion devices. The game has been played in its current form since as early as 1796 in Paris. In 1842, fellow Frenchmen Francois and Louis Blanc added the "0" to the roulette wheel in order to achieve a house advantage. In the early 1800s, roulette was brought into the U.S. where, to further increase house odds, a second zero, "00", was introduced. (In some forms of early American roulette the double-zero was replaced by an American Eagle.)
In the 1800s, roulette spread all over both Europe and the U.S., becoming one of the most famous and most popular casino games. Some call roulette the "King of Casino Games", probably because it was associated with the glamour of the casinos in Monte Carlo. (Francois Blanc actually established the first casinos there). A legend tells about Francois Blanc, who supposedly bargained with the devil to obtain the secrets of roulette. The legend is based on the fact that if you add up all the numbers on the roulette wheel (from 1 to 36), the resulting total is "666", which is the "Number of the Beast".
Most roulette games today are played with double-zero wheels. Single-zero wheels can be found at some of the larger casinos, but with a higher betting minimum. Some casino locations feature "surrender" for the outside even-money bets. This means that if a zero or double zero hits, half the bet is returned to the player. The term surrender comes from the European game, which features an en prison rule for even-money bets, meaning that the bet is moved to the side, or put "in prison", when the zero hits, until the next roll. If the player's bet wins on that next spin, the bet is now whole again and is moved "out of prison" and back to the regular spot in the betting square. The effect is that half the bet is lost or "surrendered" on the zero or double zero. This bet reduces the house edge to 2.63 percent on even-money bets and is more favorable on the European single-zero wheels, as it reduces the casino edge to just 1.3 percent on the outside bets.
