Etymology and history of the game

We play roulette in the casino. They named it after the word, which means a little wheel. In the French little wheel is known as roulette.  In this game, players place their bet on a number present on the wheel. This game has its roots in France. People invented and started to play the game in the 18th century. Some historians believed that perpetual motion is the ancestral game of the roulette, which was invented in 1720.  They also find roulette in some French novels that describe its existence in Paris. Later on, to eradicate the confusion, they use green for the zeros in the games.

About the structure of the game:

This wheel has the various groups of the numbers either written in red or black.  The number on the wheel is recognized by odd and even. Numbers 19-36 are high and numbers 1-18 are low.  To know which number and color will win on the wheel the croupier will spin the wheel in a certain direction and then it will spin a ball in the opposite direction to the wheel.

When the ball will lose its momentum, then fall on the wheel, they will pay the winner for a successful bet. Players have a variety of the option for betting in the game. They can place their bets on any number or a small range of numbers according to their decision and confidence on the bet.  Even players can bet on the larger positional pockets, or the color of the pocket or odd or even number. The player can bet till that moment until the dealer announces for no more bets.

We number the pocket of the wheel from 0 to 36 in the game of roulette.  We place 1 to 10 and 19 to 28 numbers in the wheel with odd on the red and even on the black. They place zero in the green pocket of the wheel. There are two green pockets present on the wheel. One has single zero and other has double zero (00)

They cover the betting area on the table with a cloth. We know this area as the layout.   Roulette European styles layouts counter have the single zero on the wheel in the green pocket while the Roulette American layout counter has the double zero on the wheel in the green pocket.
