Single Zero Roulette Vs Double Zero Roulette
casino blog
31 August 2011

Place your bets is the phrase you will hear in casinos all over the world, it is followed by a mad flurry of players trying to get their chips down on the table before the Croupier announces ‘Rien ne va plus’ a few seconds before the ball drops neatly into the winning number, well at least that is what they would say if you were playing French Roulette.

This is not the only difference that a player will find between a French Roulette table and an American Roulette table because the American game has a double zero on it whereas the French only has the one zero. Does this matter to the player?

City review of Albuquerque, NM
casino blog
26 May 2011

Bugs Bunny often commented that he "should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque", if he had have stayed there instead, he wouldn't have kept bumping into Elmer Thud that's for sure.  He would have also experienced the largest city in New Mexico.

At the turn of the 20th century, Albuquerque thrived and prospered and the town boasted many modern amenities, such as an electric street railway.  This provided the 8,000 inhabitants with good access across the city and some of the buildings from this era still survive.

The popularity of Route 66 brought many travellers to the area and a growth in motels and restaurants followed.  The path of Route 66 changed slightly in 1937, however there are now brown, historical highway markers placed along the pre-1937 route, so those of you with an interest in motoring from that era can follow the original roads.
