About Roulette Wheels

It is the original wheel of fortune, or misfortune to some. Roulette wheel, meaning "little wheel" in French, was first devised in France in the 18th century. Since then, the roulette wheel has evolved from a board game to a popular casino game of pure chance. There is a vast inventory of roulette wheels available on eBay. Early examples of the roulette wheels were sometimes used in carnival games and are displayed vertically with a nail and tab stopper. Other antique gaming wheels range from hand-held personal game box devices to substantial wood and bronze wheels integrated into large betting tables or ornate pedestal tables. Mostly made of painted wood, vintage wheels can also feature Bakelite, metal, or brass. Modern versions available feature colored, numbered roulette wheel and rack, steel ball, felt betting cloth, and rake for gathering your chips, which are often included as well. Whether you are a gaming enthusiast, a collector, or are looking for an entertaining addition to casino night, odds are no game room is complete without a roulette wheel.
