Give Your Fate a Roll with Roulette

For as long as anyone can remember, the ease of getting the money multiplied through gambling and putting wagers, has attracted numerous people to lay their hands on the game of roulette. Roulette is a game that is extensively played at the casinos and is named after the French abbreviation for “small wheel”. In roulette, the players have the alternative to place a wager on a particular number or on a set of numbers, or if they could go with an even number or an odd number or on the colors of black or red.  

For determining the color or the number winning the game, the croupier spins the wheel in a particular direction and then spins the ball in a different direction about a leaning track that is circular in shape. The ball loses its momentum eventually and comes onto the wheel onto one of the numbered or colored pockets that are there in the wheel.  

History of the game of roulette states that it was first originated in the country of France in the eighteenth century.  Blaise Pascal was the person who had brought forth the primordial form of the game in the seventeenth century when he was looking out for a perpetual motion machine. The wheel of the roulette is considered to be a blend of E.O., Roly-Poly, Reiner, the Italian board games such as Biribi and Hoca along with Roulette, which was already from a French board game.  

The game has been ever since played like the way it is played today from the year 1796 in the city of Paris. An old description of the game of the roulette the way it is played today was read in the French novel written by Jaques Lablee and named La Roulette, ou le Jour, which describes the game of roulette as a wheel in the year 1796 in the Palais Royal in the city of Paris.  An even older reference of the game was brought out in 1758 in the legislation rules for the city of New France wherein the legislation had put a ban on the games of hoca, roulette, faro and dice.  

The etiquettes of the game state that the players are not supposed to collect their wagering chips and winnings on the external chances till the time all the prize money has been paid in the same box. This is done to prevent any kind of commotion and reduce the chance for the players to steal the chips of the other players.  Apart from this, players don’t have to even touch the chips as soon as the croupier calls out that no more placing of wagers would be anymore entertained. Moreover, as soon as the dealer has kept the dolly, it is strictly not allowed to even touch the chips on a chance of winning.  

The most common etiquettes of the game state it is appreciated if the players keep the chips on the table instead of tossing them. The chips that are tossed chips may spin to misplace the other wagers or may spin down to chipping equipment.
