On a conventional roulette wheel there is one ball, which is spun around the outer circumference in a contradicting direction to that of the rotating wheel ascribed with the numbered slots.

The Higgs Outcome Roulette Wheel differs in a few main ways. The biggest variation is that there are two balls,
mechanically fired in opposite directions, each on their own parallel track. After a few judicious laps, a switch is tripped, like a set of railway points, causing the balls to enter a collision course on the same track.

The resulting impact causes the balls to bounce into the pathway of the spinning wheel, where settlement establishes two potential numbers. A clear domed lid ensures that the ricocheting balls cannot escape their final resolution.

This is the point where the second big difference occurs, for amongst all the single slots there is one slot on the wheel big enough to contain both balls at once.

This most highly unlikely result is known as the Higgs Outcome and pays a massive dividend in proportion to its astronomical odds.

Astronomical odds? More like 1 in 1369 (assuming 37 distinct numbers) - high certainly, but far from astronomical - less than getting four of a kind in poker anyway.

I think the physical difficulty of the two balls settling in the one large slot, without one displacing the other will ensure that this event is extremely rare. In fact I know of no way of predicting the odds, but my money is on the millions to one.

Depending on what consitutes a "big enough to contain both balls" you are a few orders of magnitude out, but we give you the bun. I think [zen_tom] is regarding your big slot, as equivalent to two adjacent slots, in which case he is right. If, however, the slot in question was a "deep" slot, exposing the same area but capable of holding two balls, he is wrong.
