As you know that the word “Roulette” is of French origin, and it means “a small wheel.” That is what you need for a game: a wheel and a ball. Great, but a wheel and a ball are not enough for a real Roulette game. You miss something equally important for the game: roulette gaming table.
There are some variations the roulette table depending on which game variation you play. But, in general, the roulette table is the same.
Depending on the roulette variation you play, there is or there isn’t a double zero on the gaming table layout. For example, in European Roulette there is the only zero, while the American variation of the gaming table layout assumes the presence of double zero.
The roulette wheel location on the gaming table in French and American Roulette differs. In French Roulette the wheel is in the center of the gaming table, while the American table layout, common to every modern casino, assumes the Roulette wheel on the edge.
In general, the roulette table layout has three parts or sections: the main layout of the table is the section with numbers, the right outside section is for bets on numbers from 1 to 18 and from 19 to 36, odd and even, bets on black and red, and the lower outside section is for bets on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd columns.
