The roulette wheel is bowl-shaped and has slanted walls leading to compartments, which the marble falls into once the wheel is spun and comes to rest. The compartments are alternately colored red and black, with the zero-pockets colored green. Two styles of roulette wheels exist, American and European.

The European roulette wheel has one zero pocket which yields a house edge of 2.70%. The American roulette wheel has two zero pockets, one marked 0 and one marked 00. This additional zero pocket yields a higher house edge of 5.26%.
 
 
 
The object of the game of roulette is to make a wager on the outcome of the ball spun around the wheel. Each compartment has a different number and color.

You can bet on a specific number, or a characteristic of the number, whether it is odd or even, whether it will fall within the first 12 numbers, or fall within a column of numbers on the table. You can also bet if it will land in a red or black pocket or the 0 pocket.
Bets can consist of inside and outside bets. Inside bets are the numbers on the internal area of the roulette table layout, where you can place bets for each specific number. Your cumulative inside bet must total the table minimum.

Outside bets consist of various other betting options. Each outside bet must be at least the table minimum. Outside bets cannot be contributed to your inside bet total.
