Rare and hard to find in a good condition. This game comes in a dark green box with snakeskin print and on top the name Roulette in golden letters. For content see below.
This Roulette game can be played with an unlimited number of players. One of the players acts as a banker (croupier). This player leads the game and announces each game with the words: 'Messieurs, faites votre jeu'.
This is the sign that the other players can place their bets. Each player may determine his own number of bets. After the croupier has given the players the opportunity to bet, he spins the cylinder and lets the ball roll in the opposite direction.
By the time the ball is slowing down, he calls: 'Rien ne va plus', as a sign that no one is allowed to place any more bets. As soon as the ball is rolled into a compartment, the banker calls the number in question with the other indications.
For example, when number 18 comes out, he calls; 18, red, even, manque. He now collects the lost bets and pays out the winning bets.

Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. In the game, players may choose to place bets on either a single number, various groupings of numbers, the colors red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19–36) or low (1–18).
To determine the winning number and color, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, then spins a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the outer edge of the wheel. The ball eventually loses momentum, passes through an area of deflectors, and falls onto the wheel and into one of 37 (in French/European style roulette) or 38 (in American style roulette) colored and numbered pockets on the wheel.
