Roulette is a game of chance that is easy to learn. You place bets on different positions of the table in the hopes that the ball, when spun on the roulette wheel, lands on a related number, colour or segment.

Larger group of numbers: Bets on big groups of numbers on the "outside" of the table.

Inside:  Bets on specific numbers or small groups of numbers on the "inside" of the table.
