In the history of the gambling, there are many cases when Americans borrowed some European games for money. As a result they had invented their own ones and some of them became even more successful and popular.
Such a case is the American roulette. It is by and large a “whitish” version of the classic European roulette with slight changes. In particular, they are:
- two sectors of the zero (0);
- and double zero (00).
The numbers on the roulette wheel are located a little bit differently.
From Canada to the USA
The tradition of playing roulette was brought to American continent by the French colonists. In the middle of the XVIII century roulette, a “devil wheel” was banned in Quebec, a city founded by French newcomers in the northeastern part of North America which now belongs to Canada.
