Paddlewheels come in two sanctioned forms: those with a table and those without. The paddlewheel with a table operates on principles similar to roulette, whereby players can place their money (in this case, tickets) on one or more of a set of color / number combinations, each with varying odds and payouts.

Paddlewheels without a table usually come in the form of a 30-number wheel. A ticket is sold for each number and the winner is awarded a prize — usually in the form of merchandise or gift certificates.
