Three Facts on the History of Roulette

It is no more news that Roulette is one of the most loved casino games on the planet. The game has a rich and colorful past and has some facts that have surrounded it until these modern times. The online versions of the game are available and can be played at NetBet roulette. Some roulette facts are explained below. 

1. All or Nothing

The game has attracted a good number of incredible people who also have incredible stories. One of them was Ashley Revell. He was an Englishman who was born in 1962.

The fellow decided to sell all his possessions, and also changed his name to that of a local bookmaker who made donations and risked it all on one spin of the roulette wheel.

Revell visited the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas where he put the $135,300 he had accrued on red. It came in, and his money was doubled. However, he wasn't lucky in business as the online poker company he set up with some of the resultant winnings went bankrupt in 2012. 

2. Impossible Runs

What we think of as random numbers is not always mathematically correct.  These seemingly crazy runs of numbers occur more often and usually go in favor of the player or against the player, and they appear to be impossibly long runs.

Reports have suggested that the Rio Casino in Las Vegas has a wheel that hit the 19 seven times consecutively. It was also gathered that another wheel in a Bristol Casino in the West of England came out on red 36 times consecutively.  

3. Roulette in the Movies

We've seen that roulette has been featured in a good number of blockbuster movies. James Bond is one the popular movie characters that play the roulette game and he prefers playing the number 17. This could possibly be the reason why the number 17 is highly betted on than any other number by all punters.

The owner of Newcastle United Football club in the English Premier League and founder of Sports Direct, Mike Ashley, will definitely agree with this. The businessman won £1.3m after placing a series of bets which totaled £480,000, all involving the number 17.

Another widely patronized roulette number in movies is 22. It played a key role in the 1993 movie Indecent Proposal and was also featured in Lost in America (1985) and Casablanca (1942).
