Roulette is one of the oldest and most popular games played in modern Casinos. Roulette is a unique table game as it has a mechanical device as the main element of the game. This is the Roulette wheel that is mounted horizontally on the end of the table. The wheel has numbered pockets ranging from 0 to 36 - and 00 in American Style Roulette.
In Roulette the bets are placed on an area of the table marked with separate boxes containing individual numbers. This marked area is called the game layout, and you may place bets on any particular number, any 4 adjacent numbers, a column or a dozen bet.
The wheel determines the outcome of a game of Roulette. Once the bets have been placed on the table, the wheel starts spinning and a small ball is released on to the wheel in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. The ball slows and eventually stops in one of the numbered pockets in the Roulette wheel.
