American roulette, as it is not difficult to guess by the name of the game, originated in the US. This happened thanks to the French, who spread their favorite gambling entertainment around the world. Enterprising Americans, who kept gambling houses, modified the wheel in their own way. Additional sectors with the image of two zeros, an eagle, etc. appeared on the wheel. This allowed the casino to increase its advantage before the player as the chances of choosing the right number were reduced and the payout odds remained the same. Currently, the US version of the roulette is used with numbers from 1 to 36, zero and double zero.
