The invention of the
roulette is the outstanding mathematician and
philosopher of the 17th Century , Blaine Pascal,
attributed to the instrument with a cylinder and
circling numbers constructed during the research on
the to make certain observations regarding the
regularity and chance in the arrays of Integer
The sister of Blasé Pascal reported about dossier brother was once plagued by severe toothache and when he could not sleep at night still find reassurance in reading , he immersed himself in the number of the roulette secrets that he sat for hours in motion .
Only by this diversion, he forgot his pain. The great scholar has probably never thought that his innocent device would be in the hands of enterprising businessmen to a cash machine and the foundation of today's casinos.
From the Chronicles is not apparent where credit is the actual inventor of the roulette game titles . There are no reliable traditions about who had the roulette first used as an entertainment and gambling. In reports of the roulette , which have been found in documents of the moralist and Missioners Chevalier de Mere , a contemporary of Pascal, to number combinations intertwine with terms such as " good and evil ", " Day and Night" and "husband and wife " .
The whole thing here is not mathematical , but rather a mystical sense and seems to relate to mimicking oracle instruments of the Far East .
Also this was not a roulette game. Half a century after the death of Pascal , the roulette appears gradually in gaming rooms where besides other gambling games with dice , cards and lotto found a fertile soil and was recognized as a " royal " game of mathematical noble origin.
