History of Roulette

The History of the roulette game: There are two theories as to the invention of Roulette.

Both trace the game to France in the mid 17th Century. One of these theories connects Roulette to a French scientist, Blaise Pascal as the person who invented or improved the game during a "monastic retreat" and played for the first time in a Paris casino.

The other theory relates the game to a French monk, saying he created it to relieve the boredom of a monastic life.

Interesting to notice is the fact that such a popular gambling game, if not the most popular was brought to us by the church. Thank God for that.
