The Casino Game of Roulette

Roulette is a casino game that is played on a table with a wheel and a ball. The table itself is covered with a felt cloth that has the roulette grid printed on it The right side or inside of the printed grid consists of 3 columns of 12 numbers with the 0 and 00 above it. (The European version will only have the 0 and not the 0 and 00 found on the American version of the roulette table.) The left side or outside of the printed grid will have other various roulette bets printed on it. The croupier first spins the wheel and then spins the ball in the opposite direction. The ball eventually loses its momentum and falls into to one of 37 (in the European version) or 38 (in the U.S. version) colored and numbered slots on the wheel. Players may bet on individual numbers, groups or ranges of numbers, if the winning number is odd or even or if the color of the winning slot is red or black.
