Where does the word “roulette” come from and What does roulette mean in French?

The French word roue (no accent) means “a wheel.”

A roulette, of course, is “a little wheel.”

And all those who have played the game of chance of the same name are well aware that it is a little wheel that governs the destinies of the players.
