"Around the reel with a depressed rim a little ivory ball is sent spinning in a direction opposite to the rotation of the wheel. As the momentum of the ball diminishes, it falls from the grooved track onto the revolving wheel. Finally it settles into one of the 38 pockets around the perimeter of the wheel. Each of the pockets is identified with a number from 1 to 36 or with a zero or double zero. The object of the game is to predict which pocket the ball will land in, and to back up your prediction with a wager. If you are correct then you are rewarded with a payoff," is how Bert Walker in his concise work on the game, Basic Roulette.
