How to Play English roulette January 3, 2017
The history of roulette dates back to the 18th century where the first form was devised by the French. The wheel of the roulette game is believed to be a fusion of the English wheel game Roly-Poly, Ace of Hearts, E.O. and roulette from the actual French board game. There have been many variations of Roulette made throughout the years, amongst which is the English Roulette.
It was by the 1720s that the Roly-Poly game was played in England whereby it allowed players to place bets on which slot a small ball would land on. The wheel for the Roly-Poly game had to banker slots whereby all bets are lost when the ball would land there. After being banned by the British Parliament, it was the game ‘Even or Odd’ that made surface where the wheel consisted of 40 unnumbered Black and White slots, with one of each colour for the banker. It was in 1745 that the E.O. game made its way to France where the colours were changed to red and black. The English Roulette is the wonderful outcome of the fusion of the many games that existed back in the days.
