The roulette wheel is a lot more than just a simple wheel. In fact, it is so constructed so that the randomness of the games is guaranteed. So ingenious is the roulette wheel that it was developed centuries ago by a French monk, who later spent the rest of his life trying to find a system that would ensure winning at the game of roulette. He failed, of course, since there is no way to always win at roulette, and developed insanity.
