American Roulette

The history of Roulette is difficult to determine because the origin of roulette is lost. There was likely some form of a wheel based game going back almost as far as the origin of the wheel itself. There are stories saying that the game was invented in China and brought to Europe by traders who were trading with Chinese.
Several early versions of a wheel and spinning ball were invented in the 17th and 18th century in Europe. The first game that was recognize as modern roulette was introduced in Paris around the end of the 18th century. Early version of the roulette game was invented by Blaise Pascal, a French mathematician. In 1842, a roulette game with a single zero was created in France by Francois and Louis Blanc. Since then, the roulette has stayed unchanged.

Object of the game is to predict in which of the 37 numbered and colored pockets on the Roulette wheel the ball will land.
European Roulette wheel has 37 numbers, from 1 to 36 and 0 (zero).
There are many different ways to place roulette bets. Each bet covers a different set of numbers and has a different distribution, as shown in the Payoffs section:

Big series – 9 chips for callbet and covers 17 numbers
(Also called series 0/2/3, Vicini de la zero, Voazon)
Small series – 6 chips for call bet, covers 12 numbers
(Series 5/8, little series)
Orphans – 5 chips for the call bet, covers 8 numbers
Zero Shpil – 4 chips for the call bet, covers 7 numbers
X* Neighbours – 5 chips for the call bet, covers 5 numbers

When everybody at the table has a chance to place their bets, the dealer spins the wheel and throws the ball into the wheel in the opposite direction of the spin. A few seconds before the ball drops, the dealer announces “No more bets!” than no further betting or changing bets are longer allowed. A player has won if he has bet on the winning number(s) or color.
