Roulette Wheel

Roulette Wheel: The Basics. The game of roulette has been around for several hundred years, with origins in France.

Indeed, the word itself is a French version of ‘wheel’. This is appropriate, as the main playing device for the game is the roulette wheel. The roulette wheel is the primary focus of this extraordinary game of chance. It is strikingly amazing that a game with as simple a concept as a ball landing on a numbered space on a spinning wheel, could produce the excitement it does. Nevertheless, the game of roulette continues to attract and entertain casino players.

The object of roulette is to place bets on numbers that a player believes will correspond to where the ball on the spinning roulette wheel will land. The roulette wheel is a circular playing device, about 16 inches in diameter. The roulette wheel has a range of numbers around its inner circumference. The numbers range from 1 through 36. There are, however, 37 slots on a European roulette wheel and 38 slots on an American roulette wheel. The extra spaces are 0 and 00 respectively.

The roulette wheel also features colored tiles, red and black. There are both blank colored tiles, as well ones that feature the aforementioned range of numbers. The tiles that contain either 0 or 00 are colored green.There is also a ball track that rings the outer circumference of the roulette wheel. When the croupier spins the roulette wheel in one direction, a small ball is spun in the opposite direction on the ball track. Once the ball loses speed, it then drops down on to the roulette wheel into one of the numbered or blank colored spaces.

The game of roulette, as presented, is indeed a simple game. Players are simply betting on the chance that the spinning ball will land on a particular spot on the roulette wheel. Naturally, there have been a number of attempts by players to try and gain an edge by devising various different methods of predicting where the spinning ball will land. One strategy that dealt with the roulette wheel itself is called the biased wheel attack.

The biased wheel attack is based on the basic premise that roulette wheels are man made. As a result, they are bound to have mechanical, structural or constructional flaws in at least some of them. The biased wheel strategy attempts to take advantage of these flaws when they are identified. The theory is that if a roulette wheel is flawed, then there is an increase in the odds of the ball landing in a particular spot. One method in this strategy is to clock the speed of the roulette wheel in order to make mathematical determinations about where a ball will land. Naturally, casinos have taken security precautions to protect the integrity of their roulette wheels.

Nevertheless, despite attempts at evening the odds against the house, the roulette wheel is still an indicator to players of the ultimate game of chance. The spin of the roulette wheel brings players an excitement that can only be found with games that challenge the odds.
