Roulette Wheel is based around the notion of a spinning wheel. The American Roulette wheel is comprised of 38 slots, each numbered individually: 0, 00, 1, 2, 3, and all the way to and including 36. The English Roulette wheel is similar, however does not include the 00 in its wheel. Each numbered section of the wheel is hollow, making it easy for the spinning ball to “fall” into a section. The numbers around the wheel alternate between pairs of even and pairs of odd numbers, in the same way that they alternate between red and black coloring’s on the numbers. The only two numbers in American Roulette who are not part of this equation are 0 and 00, as they are colored green.
The process of the game is that the dealer spins the wheel in one direction, while rolling the ball around the wheel in the opposite direction. It is purely by stroke of luck that the ball will roll into any particular number, unfortunately there are no mathematics involved!
The table in Roulette is a vital part of the game because it’s the item that holds all the bets and all the money! The Roulette table is designed so that all the numbers (excluding 0 and 00) are lined up into columns, three in total. This means that there are 12 rows of numbers, all listed in numerical order from top to bottom. Betting can be classed as inside bets or outside bets, depending on what exactly the participant is betting on.
There is absolutely no limit to the number of bets that one can play – they can bet on every single number if they wish – but obviously the lower amount of bets you place will be higher winnings for you if your number/s do come up! Around the table are other words and boxes in addition to the listed wheel numbers, which are discussed more in depth in the other sections of this site.
