The Roulette Rules
The game of Roulette is probably one of the most recognizable and international symbols of all casinos. The game originates from France and the meaning of the word "roulette" is the "small wheel". The main idea of the game is to guess where the wheel the ball will land. The players, according to roulette rules, place bets on specific number, color or range etc. and wait for the ball to land. The croupier (French word for dealer) spins the ball of the roulette wheel into one direction and the ball into opposite direction. The ball spins around a rotating wheel and everyone waits when it starts to slow its motion. Soon the ball slows down and falls to the wheel where he eventually lands in one of the 37 (European roulette) or 38 (American roulette)pockets.
All the pockets on the wheel according to roulette rules are numbered from 1 to 36. Half of the numbers is red and another half is black. The additional pockets are 0 only in European Roulette and 0 and 00 in American roulette. The order of the numbers on the roulette wheel is like this:

The roulette table also consists of a betting area that is called the "layout". The layout depends on the roulette rules variant and can be a single zero (European) and double zero (American). In addition, the European wheel is almost all the time at the center of the roulette table. While the American wheel is at one end of the roulette table.
