The wheel contains numbers up to 36 with a little elevation after every number which can contain the ball when the wheel slows down. The players bet on the numbers which are drawn at the table. If the ball lands on the same number on the wheel, the player wins a certain amount of money. Here is what you need to know about roulette before you play it.
