Roullete (French for little wheel) is a casino game in which players bet on various field that include one or more numbers, the color red or black, whether the number is odd or even, and if the numbers are high (19-36) or low (1-18). The game can be played with a single or double zero. Mini Roulette is also becoming more popular in casinos, with a smaller table and only one zero.

The history of roulette is a bit unclear, but it’s likely that the game evolved from the Italian game Biribi. The modern game consists of a round table with a grid marked off in sections affording the players a variety of betting opportunities, and in the center a revolving, dishlike device (the roulette wheel) into which a small ball is spun to come to rest finally in one of 37 or 38 compartments, indicating the winning number.

A modern roulette wheel has a dozen red and black compartments numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36, plus two green compartments (on European wheels) numbered 0 and 00 (on American wheels). A croupier, who oversees the game, spins the wheel and places a marker on the winning number when it appears. The dealer then clears off the losing bets and pays the winners, and play begins again.

The Roulette wheel and the Roulette table are carefully designed to prevent cheating. However, despite these precautions, some players do attempt to predict the outcome of a spin by looking at the color of the winning number, or looking for patterns in the placement of winning and losing chips. Casinos can’t stop these attempts, but they can prevent them by ensuring that all bets are placed on the Roulette table before the ball is spun.
