European Roulette and American Roulette

In the 1840’s, the Blanc brothers developed an innovation to the roulette devised by Pascal in 1655. They introduced a zero to Pascal’s classic roulette, to make it known in a casino in Monte Carlo as European roulette. A group of French immigrants who fled the Terror Regime settled in New Orleans, carrying with them the invention of Pascal; later, given that the big bookmakers lost money with the French roulette model, they would add, unlike the prototype of the Blanc brothers, two zeros, which favored the casinos.
