One way to make Roulette using Javascript - Part 2

Building the wheel

In part one we built the betting board and gave it some minimal styling. In this part I'm going to be building the wheel and testing its rotation.

Here, I created a function called buildWheel

function buildWheel(){}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Inside that function I created the wheel wrapper

let wheel = document.createElement('div');
wheel.setAttribute('class', 'wheel');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then I added the outer rim

let outerRim = document.createElement('div');
outerRim.setAttribute('class', 'outerRim');
wheel.append(outerRim);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next I placed all the possible numbers into an array in the order they appear on the wheel and added each block to the wrapper

let numbers = [0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25, 17, 34, 6, 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33, 1, 20, 14, 31, 9, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26];
for(i = 0; i < numbers.length; i++){
    let a = i + 1;
    let spanClass = (numbers[i] < 10)? 'single' : 'double';
    let sect = document.createElement('div');
    sect.setAttribute('id', 'sect'+a);
    sect.setAttribute('class', 'sect');
    let span = document.createElement('span');
    span.setAttribute('class', spanClass);
    span.innerText = numbers[i];
    sect.append(span);
    let block = document.createElement('div');
    block.setAttribute('class', 'block');
    sect.append(block);
    wheel.append(sect);
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

which in HTML translates to

<div id="sect1" class="sect">
    <span class="single">0</span>
    <div class="block"></div>
</div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

where 1 and 0 will equal whichever iteration the "a" and "numbers[i]" variable are on respectively.

Next I added in the pockets rim element

let pocketsRim = document.createElement('div');
pocketsRim.setAttribute('class', 'pocketsRim');
wheel.append(pocketsRim);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Followed by the ball track element

let ballTrack = document.createElement('div');
ballTrack.setAttribute('class', 'ballTrack');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The ball track is the line the ball is going to follow when the wheel is spinning. Next we need to add the ball to the track and add the track to the wheel

let ball = document.createElement('div');
ball.setAttribute('class', 'ball');
ballTrack.append(ball);
wheel.append(ballTrack);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next I added the pockets element which, once styled, will just be a smaller black circle over the larger circle at half opacity to make the pockets look darker than the numbers

let pockets = document.createElement('div');
pockets.setAttribute('class', 'pockets');
wheel.append(pockets);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then I added the cone, which is the centre circle of the wheel

let cone = document.createElement('div');
cone.setAttribute('class', 'cone');
wheel.append(cone);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Finally I added in the turret, which is the decoration in the centre of the wheel. I did this in two parts, first the centre piece

let turret = document.createElement('div');
turret.setAttribute('class', 'turret');
wheel.append(turret);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Followed by the handles

let turretHandle = document.createElement('div');
turretHandle.setAttribute('class', 'turretHandle');
let thendOne = document.createElement('div');
thendOne.setAttribute('class', 'thendOne');
turretHandle.append(thendOne);
let thendTwo = document.createElement('div');
thendTwo.setAttribute('class', 'thendTwo');
turretHandle.append(thendTwo);
wheel.append(turretHandle);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then I appended the wheel to the container

container.append(wheel);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and called on the function just above the buildBettingBoard function call

buildWheel();
buildBettingBoard();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's it for the buildWheel function. Now when you load the page you'll see the numbers running down the page. Time to add in some style.

First there's the main wheel element

.wheel {
    height: 312px;
    width: 312px;
    position: relative;
    left: -75px;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then I worked on placing in the numbers. Basically, I just created a pie chart with 37 equal pieces that alternated between red and black with 1 green section. There are 360 degrees in a circle, 360 / 37 just about equals 9.73

.block {
    transition: all 1s;
    position: absolute;
    width: 290px;
    height: 290px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    clip: rect(0px, 145px, 290px, 0px);
}

.sect {
    position: absolute;
    top:10px;
    left:10px;
    width: 290px;
    height: 290px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    clip: rect(0px, 290px, 290px, 145px);
}

#sect1 .block {
    background-color: #016D29;
    transform:rotate(9.73deg);
}

#sect2 .block, #sect4 .block, #sect6 .block, #sect8 .block, #sect10 .block, #sect12 .block, #sect14 .block, #sect16 .block, #sect18 .block, #sect20 .block, #sect22 .block, #sect24 .block, #sect26 .block, #sect28 .block, #sect30 .block, #sect32 .block, #sect34 .block, #sect36 .block {
    background-color: #E0080B;
    transform: rotate(9.73deg);
}

#sect3 .block, #sect5 .block, #sect7 .block, #sect9 .block, #sect11 .block, #sect13 .block, #sect15 .block, #sect17 .block, #sect19 .block, #sect21 .block, #sect23 .block, #sect25 .block, #sect27 .block, #sect29 .block, #sect31 .block, #sect33 .block, #sect35 .block, #sect37 .block {
    background-color: #000;
    transform: rotate(9.73deg);
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then I rotated each section plus 9.73deg of the section before

#sect2 {
    transform: rotate(9.73deg);
}

#sect3 {
    transform: rotate(19.46deg);
}

#sect4 {
    transform: rotate(29.19deg);
}

#sect5 {
    transform: rotate(38.92deg);
}

#sect6 {
    transform: rotate(48.65deg);
}

#sect7 {
    transform: rotate(58.38deg);
}

#sect8 {
    transform: rotate(68.11deg);
}

#sect9 {
    transform: rotate(77.84deg);
}

#sect10 {
    transform: rotate(87.57deg);
}

#sect11 {
    transform: rotate(97.3deg);
}

#sect12 {
    transform: rotate(107.03deg);
}

#sect13 {
    transform: rotate(116.76deg);
}

#sect14 {
    transform: rotate(126.49deg);
}

#sect15 {
    transform: rotate(136.22deg);
}

#sect16 {
    transform: rotate(145.95deg);
}

#sect17 {
    transform: rotate(155.68deg);
}

#sect18 {
    transform: rotate(165.41deg);
}

#sect19 {
    transform: rotate(175.14deg);
}

#sect20 {
    transform: rotate(184.87deg);
}

#sect21 {
    transform: rotate(194.6deg);
}

#sect22 {
    transform: rotate(204.33deg);
}

#sect23 {
    transform: rotate(214.06deg);
}

#sect24 {
    transform: rotate(223.79deg);
}

#sect25 {
    transform: rotate(233.52deg);
}

#sect26 {
    transform: rotate(243.25deg);
}

#sect27 {
    transform: rotate(252.98deg);
}

#sect28 {
    transform: rotate(262.71deg);
}

#sect29 {
    transform: rotate(272.44deg);
}

#sect30 {
    transform: rotate(282.17deg);
}

#sect31 {
    transform: rotate(291.9deg);
}

#sect32 {
    transform: rotate(301.63deg);
}

#sect33 {
    transform: rotate(311.36deg);
}

#sect34 {
    transform: rotate(321.09deg);
}

#sect35 {
    transform: rotate(330.82deg);
}

#sect36 {
    transform: rotate(340.55deg);
}

#sect37 {
    transform: rotate(350.28deg);
}

Next I positioned and sized the numbers and gave them a colour of white.

.double, .single{
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 1;
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 14px;
    transform: rotate(3deg);
}

.double{
    left: 148px;
    margin-top: 4.5px;
}

.single{
    left: 152px;
    margin-top: 4.5px;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then the outer rim.

.outerRim {
    position: absolute;
    left:0;
    top:0;
    width: 290px;
    height: 290px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
    border: 10px solid #F3c620;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Followed by the pockets rim, which I made thinner and silver

.pocketsRim {
    position: absolute;
    top: 34px;
    left: 34px;
    width: 235px;
    height: 235px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    border: 3px solid #c0c0c0;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then the ball track. Originally the track had a border so I could align the ball. The the track will be the element that is rotating while the ball always stays in the same position it's been set on the track, giving the impression the ball is rotating around the track. After the ball was positioned, I removed the border.

.ballTrack{
    width: 212px;
    height: 207px;
    position: absolute;
    left: 47.5px;
    top: 50px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    z-index:2;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

followed by positioning and shaping the ball

.ball{
    background-color: #fff;
    width: 16px;
    height: 16px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    position: relative;
    left: 109px;
    top: -8px;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, I styled the pockets.

.pockets {
    position: absolute;
    top: 37px;
    left: 37px;
    width: 235px;
    height: 235px;
    background-color: #000;
    border-radius: 100%;
    opacity: .5;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

followed by the cone

.cone {
    position: absolute;
    top: 62px;
    left: 61px;
    height: 180px;
    width: 180px;
    border: 3px solid #9f9a9a;
    border-radius: 100%;
    background: radial-gradient(circle at 100px 100px, #892c10, #000);
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and finished it off with the turret. I did this in 3 pieces: the centre, the handles and the handle decoration

.turret{
    border-radius: 100%;
    background: radial-gradient( circle at 30% 30%, #f3c620, #1a1608 );
    width: 45px;
    height: 45px;
    position: absolute;
    top: 133px;
    left: 134px;
    z-index: 1;
}

.turretHandle{
    background: radial-gradient( circle at 44%, #f3c620, #6a570f);
    width: 87px;
    height: 14px;
    position: absolute;
    left: 113px;
    top: 148px;
}

.thendOne, .thendTwo{
    border-radius: 100%;
    background: radial-gradient( circle at 30% 30%, #f3c620, #1a1608 );
    width: 25px;
    height: 25px;
    position: absolute;
}

.thendOne{
    top: -6px;
    left: -20px;
}

.thendTwo{
    top: -6px;
    left: 83px;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's almost it for the wheel, now when the page is refreshed we have a stationary wheel on the screen. Now we just need to see how it looks when it's rotating. The wheel will be rotating clockwise and the ball will be spinning anti-clockwise. First we add in the keyframes

@keyframes wheelRotate {
    from {
        transform: rotate(0deg);
    }
    to {
        transform: rotate(359deg);
    }
}
@keyframes ballRotate {
    from {
        transform: rotate(0deg);
    }
    to {
        transform: rotate(-359deg);
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then added in the animation command in the wheel and ballTrack elements

.wheel {
    height: 312px;
    width: 312px;
    position: relative;
    left: -75px;
    animation: wheelRotate 5s linear infinite;
}

.ballTrack{
    width: 212px;
    height: 207px;
    position: absolute;
    left: 47.5px;
    top: 50px;
    border-radius: 100%;
    z-index:2;
    animation: ballRotate 1s linear infinite;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For now it's set to infinite. When the page is refreshed, we'll see a turning wheel with a spinning ball next to the betting table, or something like this
