Once chips are placed on table and bets are made, dealer spins Roulette wheel while spinning ball in opposite direction inside Roulette wheel. Players are allowed to continue placng their bets during spin until dealer says "No more bets".
When wheel slows down and ball drops into one of numbered slots, dealer places a marker on winning number on Roulette table. The players who bet on winning number or color are rewarded while players who bet on losing number(s) lose their chips to casino.
