Roulette is a popular casino game that is played on a spinning wheel. The roulette wheel consists of numbered pockets, typically from 0 to 36, with alternating colors of red and black.

Roulette betting is a form of gambling where players place bets on the outcome of a spinning roulette wheel. The game is typically played in casinos and has become popular both in physical establishments and online platforms.
In roulette, the wheel contains numbered pockets, usually ranging from 0 to 36. These pockets are colored alternately in red and black, except for the green pocket(s) representing the number 0 or 00, depending on the variation of the game.
To play roulette, players place their bets on the roulette table, which displays various betting options corresponding to the numbers and colors on the wheel. Bets can be placed on individual numbers, groups of numbers, or characteristics such as odd or even numbers, red or black colors, or high or low numbers.
Once the bets are placed, the dealer or croupier spins the wheel in one direction and releases a small ball in the opposite direction. As the wheel slows down, the ball eventually comes to rest in one of the numbered pockets. The outcome is determined by the pocket in which the ball lands.
Winning bets are paid out based on the odds associated with the specific bet. Different betting options have different payouts, with bets on individual numbers typically having the highest payout.
