Roulette
The game is simple, a roulette wheel has 36 numbers, plus 0 and in many
cases 00, a ball is spun into the wheel and lands in 1 of the 38
spaces.
The bets vary but can be as simple as red or black, odd or even, single
numbers and multiple numbers. The odds for most bet are not in your
favor, but this is an easy game and enjoyed by many.
