The sum of all the numbers on the roulette wheel is 666, the “Number of the Beast” – Useless Fact


Roulette is a game that was originally born in France during the 17th century. Its name in fact refers to the wheel that is used to determine a winning number during each turn of the game. But before spinning the wheel, every player can bet on a number from 0 to 36 (some versions even include a 00). Players can also bet on groups of numbers, adjacent numbers, or if the number will be odd or even. Another possibility is to bet on the color of the numbers. In fact each number can be red or black. All these possibilities are represented on the common table, that is divided into sectors, where each sector represent a number or group of numbers. Obviously each sector has a different multiplier when determining how much a player wins.A legend says that François Blanc supposedly bargained with the devil to obtain the secrets of roulette. The legend is based on the fact that the sum of all the numbers on the roulette wheel (from 1 to 36) is 666, which is the “Number of the Beast”.
