Today, the roulette wheel is probably the internationally recognized symbol of the elegance, fun and prestige of high-class casinos.
The American roulette wheel is divided into 38 equal spaces numbered 0, 00 and 1 to 36. The zero spaces are green while the others are red or black. The balanced wheel, normally made of wood, turns on itself. The dealer turns the wheel in one direction and throws an ivory ball in the opposite direction on the inside of the roulette wheel, where he spins several times before stopping. After the ball has lost its speed, it falls inside one of the spaces. Lastly, you can jump from space to space until you are still in a single place to finish that roulette wheel.
The fascinating part of the game comes from the number of possible bets and the excitement and anticipation of watching the ball fall into one of the spaces.
