Did you know that In the 15th century, Europeans began to use the face cards (J,Q,K) to represent famous figures in history. The king of Spades is supposed to represent David, king of the kingdom of Israel. King of Hearts represents Charlemagne or Charles the Great, the famous king of the Franks in the 8th century A.C. King of Diamond portrays Julius Caesar. Finally, the king of Clubs is inspired by Alexander the Great, the legendary king of Macedon. The Queens and Jacks of the deck also represent historical or mythological figures. The Jack of Diamonds, for example, represents Homer’s Hector. The Queen of Spades represents Pallas, the Greek Goddess.
Did you know that if you add all the numbers depicted on the roulette you will get 666 which is thought to be the Devil number? That's why roulette and gambling are usually associated with the Devil and sin.
