How to Play American Roulette

In American Roulette players can wager on either a single number or a range of numbers, on the red or on black, or on whether the number is even or odd. To determine the number and color, a croupier spins the roulette wheel and rolls a ball in the opposite direction. The ball eventually falls into one of 38 numbered and colored pockets on the wheel (0, 00 and numbers 1 to 36).
