Ever wondered what differentiates online slots from roulettes?
We all know they have a totally different architecture and rules, but, do you know which one was created first? And also, which of the two is more rewarding or more popular to play now?
This article main purpose is to provide you with an overall view of both the games starting from their history. Then, we are going to find it out which one has become more popular than the other trying to guess some of the possible reasons why it happened.
It was the 17th century when the first Roulette was introduced on the market by a French man. We do not have much information about this first trial. The reason why we don’t know much is mainly due to the fact that at that time there still were many restrictions surrounding the world of casino.
Although invented in France, in 1842 it was brought in Germany, where there were less restrictions. It was then brought back to France when times were more permissive.
Another lucky version of it was introduced in the United States in the 19th century, the called ‘Double Zero’, today known as American version of it.
Contrary to the early developments of Roulettes, we have to wait for the first years of the 20th century to talk about slot machines and the late 1960 for their real success.
The advent of the internet in the 21th century has changed both roulettes and slot machines physiognomies.
After getting forgotten for many years, the advent of the internet has brought the Roulette popularity back. The possibility to play at home far away from the crowded brick and mortar gaming rooms, and its main evolutions has led many Players to choose betting on it again. Now it is possible to talk about a slow but unrelenting reappearance of this game.
Contrary to Roulette, slot machines have never lost their appreciation over the years. Maybe because of their later introduction, since they were first launched, they have enjoyed a popularity which has become even more evident after the introduction of online casinos.
Due to the variety of themes now available, the developments of exciting 3-D and 4-D graphics, and the amazing sound effects they use, slots are nowadays the most chosen casino game.
It is important to highlight that these two games have a very different nature and this has had a strong impact on their luck.
While slots are indeed dynamic because of their nature, Roulette is more static, you have to wait for the numbers or the colours you choose to trigger a winning combination and this probably make it a game adaptable to a more selected target.
Despite different, both of them can be considered great introductions in the gambling world.
Which one do you prefer? Do you love the adrenaline coming from waiting for your luck to come or can’t you help the dynamism of the machines?
