Roulette is a casino game in which players bet on the outcome of a revolving wheel. The game has many different types of bets, but they all fall into two categories: inside and outside bets.
The game is played on a table with numbers from 1 to 36 and a single zero or double zero (on American tables). A ball spins around the wheel and lands in one of the compartments.
Game of chance
A game of chance is a game in which the outcome or winner is heavily determined by randomness. Typical games of chance are dice, spinning tops, playing cards, roulette wheels, and numbered balls. They are often played as gambling if players wager money or other things of monetary value.
Roulette is a popular game of chance that involves spinning a wheel divided into 38 segments, each marked with a color (red and black) or one or two zeros. A metal ball is then tossed into the wheel and comes to rest in one of the compartments, where it indicates the winning number.
Roulette is a game of chance that has been played for centuries. Its origin is not entirely clear and there are many theories. Some believe that the game was invented by a seventeenth century French mathematician, Blaise Pascal while others claim it was developed by monks (Dominican). Most experts agree however that the present day version of the game originated in France from older games like E.O. and portique. The game was adapted to its modern wheel and number layout by Louis and Francois Blanc.
