This is the reason for this journey into hyper-reality, in search of instances where the imagination demands the real thing and, to attain it, must fabricate the absolute fake; where the boundaries between game and illusion are blurred.”
 from “Travels in Hyper-Reality, Faith in Fakes” by Umberto Eco

The roulette wheel is round and consists of thirty seven numbered slots and one zero. Each person buys special chips that can be used only at the roulette table. These have different colors in order to differentiate between the players. At the end of the game, you may exchange your chips for ordinary casino chips that can be cashed in at the clerk's desk.To make your bet you must place the chips on the table layout according to the bet you wish to place, and then the dealer spins the wheel. Shortly before the roulette wheel stops the dealer announces “no more bets” and then no more bets are allowed to be placed.
