The game of Roulette is played by spinning a small ball on a wheel with thirty-seven numbered slots. The wheel will spin in one direction and the ball in the opposite direction. When the wheel stops, the ball comes to rest in one of the 37 numbered slots.
The Roulette player’s objective is to predict the slot in which the ball will land. By predicting the right number, the player earns a payoff on his bet. The size of the payoff depends on the nature of the bet placed.
