Roulette is the best gamble

The name of one of the most popular gambling in the world – roulette – gave the French word roulette (wheel). And it is deeply natural. After all, roulette began its history in the 18th century in France.

A device for playing roulette, which remained unchanged to this day, appeared in Paris in 1765. Roulette was born thanks to the ingenuity of one of the officers of the French police – Gabriel de Sartine, who invented this game of chance as opposed to card games – the predecessors of poker and Black Jack.

The most famous mile in the world

The Principality of Monaco is just 1.95 km2 and it is without a doubt the most famous square mile on the planet. Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, at the southern border of France, the tiny principality seemed to win the heavenly lottery – there is simply no better place for an elite European holiday. The beautiful sea, the sun shines 300 days a year, a minimum of cloudy weather, mild climate, a stone’s throw from French and Italian attractions, and the principality itself is literally crammed with monuments of architecture and culture. Here, even restaurants and casinos have such a celebrity-rich history that they have long become cultural objects of the first magnitude.

The Principality is not an independent state, but a protectorate, and formally belongs to its closest neighbor, France. Continue reading
