The first slot machine was invented by Charles August Fey, a German expatriate living in the United States at the end of the 19th century. He began by building the Horseshoe, a disc machine, and the “4/11/44”, a machine offering a hundred possibilities, ancestor of the first three-reel “One-armed Bandit” which he then built in 1887. A machine mechanical which had five symbols (a horseshoe, a diamond, a spade, a heart and a bell). Then comes the Card Bell, then its big sister the Liberty Bell, which offers a thousand possibilities and which was very successful in the region until 1920, during prohibition in the USA. The Liberty model lasted until the sixties before the arrival of electromechanical and video slot machines in the eighties. In particular, the player’s recuperator was included.
Today, slot machines have become true jewels of technology. In France, they were allowed in casinos only in 1986. Note that the record of winnings on a slot machine in France dates from March 2011, a player having cashed more than 9 million euros!
There are hundreds of different machines. You can walk around the games room and choose a machine whose design or animations appeal to you more. There are machines, with three or five reels for example, which offer you a large number of possible combinations. If you are an animation fan, there are also plenty of themed machines. Or, if you are a poker player, you may prefer Video Poker machines.
In terms of winnings, slot machines all promise an interesting jackpot, often mentioned at the top of the machine. The biggest jackpots are found on progressive slots. No other casino game allows you to win so much, so easily and quickly. The interest lies in the jackpots, you do not sit in front of a slot machine just to be content to double your initial bet.
The slots are ideal for playing alone, but it is also possible to play several for more fun (only one seat and one choice per machine, however). Your friends can settle down and share your emotions. And it is possible to change the machine every minute if you wish! In short, impossible to get tired of slot machines.
If slot machines are dependent on complete chance and do not require any particular strategy, it is in any case recommended to choose your machine in proportion to the budget available. Wagering small but having a large number of playable credits guarantees that you will play longer, which is true for all games, but particularly for one-armed bandits. Otherwise, when it comes time to choose the number of paylines you are going to play, it is advisable to choose the maximum number.

English Roulette is defined as a derivative of French Roulette, the rules being identical. The only notable difference concerns the tokens allocated to players and the number of authorized players. You will therefore find the same sensations in the English version!
English Roulette is identical to French Roulette, with two exceptions:
You cannot bet with casino chips. Each player is indeed assigned specific tokens, characterized by a unique color.
A maximum of seven players is allowed at the table.

Thus, it is easier for them to visualize the distribution of their different bets, as well as their value, since each player assigns a unique value to the set of chips he has.

History: Old as the world
Literally meaning “Black Jack”, Black-Jack would have been born around 1700 in French casinos under the name “21”. Its spread took place in the 1900s in North America thanks to French settlers, with slightly different rules. In 1931, during the legalization of gambling in the USA, the casinos of Vegas then began an operation to seduce the players, by giving a bonus of 10 to 1 for a hand of 21 points including the Jack of Spades and an Ace. Since then, Black-Jack, whose name is inspired by that time, has continued to develop, and is an essential game for any self-respecting casino. Appearing in numerous films, he has often made headlines for card counting affairs by famous players but that is no longer possible today. Enough to further increase the legend of Black-Jack …
Do like the pros:
Black-Jack is a very easy game to learn, since the players have only one goal: to get as close as possible to the number 21. To play, you just need to have some basic math skills, which makes it easier to play. makes it accessible to as many people as possible. It is suitable for all types of players. And the Black-Jack has a great strategic aspect as long as one is seriously interested in it. Most of the time, players simply double their bet if they beat the dealer. But the game can be very exciting, especially when the player has the opportunity to double down. You can play Black-Jack in all Partouche casinos.
Strategy: a real advantage
Black-Jack is a game where strategy is omnipresent. It is thus very easy to calculate your expectation of gain, and the basic strategies make it possible to limit the advantage of the bank. They are summarized below:

If you have a total of 10 or 11, double if the bank’s total is lower.
