Roulette is an exciting casino game that was named after a French word that means ‘little wheel”. In this game, players can choose to place wagers on either a range of numbers or a single number, the colors black or red, or whether the number is even or odd, or if the numbers are low (1-18) or high (19-36).
To determine the winning color and number, a croupier spins the wheel in one direction and then spins the ball in the other direction around a slanted circular trail running around the perimeter of the wheel. The ball eventually stops and rests onto the wheel onto one of 38 (in the American version) or 37 (in French/European version) numbered and colored pockets on the wheel.
Before the start of every round, the croupier will allow the players to place their bets on the table. The game starts with excitement when the croupier spins both the wheel and the ball in the appositive direction. After 10 to 20 seconds, the dealer announces that no other bet is allowed and waves his hand over the table.
Once the ball has stopped, the dealer announces the winning number by putting a special marker on the table before clearing other bets (losing bets). The dealer pays the winning bets and then starts another round.

History of Roulette Casino Game
The modern Roulette game is believed to have been played in France in the 18th century. Many people also believe that the game involves a combination of donuts, EQ, Rainer, and ace of hearts (all for the English game) and Biribi and the Italian game Hoca (hawk).
Way back, Blaise Pascal is believed to have designed a more primitive form of this game a 100-years ago in search of a continuous motion machine. This game was used to combat monasteries boredom.
In 1842, 2 Frenchmen, Louis, and Francois Blanc developed the Roulette wheel with a single zero, as opposed to double zeros, which was provided at a casino in Monte Carlo. This was to reduce the house edge.
