    Ok, there's a standing rule here that we don't do people's homework for them.

    Give it a shot, make your best effort to solve it on your own...
    Then if you run into problems, pose your code (in code tags please) and I'm sure you'll get some help.

    Do you know the rules? Roulette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Perhaps 3 primary functions
    - placeBets()
    - spinWheel()
    - payout()
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    In that case it would help, rather a lot if you would ask an actual question...

    Seriously, be specific... what part of this are you stuck on?

    Ok... have you ever written a program, in any language, before?

    If not, you should start here...

    Cprogramming.com - C Made Easy

    This covers the very basic fundimentals of C programming and should get you off to a start with your project.

    C doesn't know or care about roulette, so there is nothing "this is good for implementing roulette" to tell you.

    What you get is a number of primitives you can put together in many different ways (including many different simulations of roulette).

    For example, spinning the wheel might involve calling rand()

    FWIW, this seems to be a hard problem for "your first program".
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Y'know what... my first program was "Hello World" which every C programmer should write. From there you add this, change that, learn new stuff... and eventually you find yourself writing more and more complex programs until, guess what... you've written something that's actually useful.

    There is no practical way to simply start to the top of the totem... there is always a climb involved.

    Roulette is actually a fairly simple program... essentially requiring some control loops, a spin the wheel procedure, some knowledge of the rules for scoring and some means to display results. There is nothing there that cannot be done with the C libraries and reserved words.

    So, I'd say you should settle down, learn the language --learn programming-- then tackle your project....
