Roulette is the owner of meta-human fight clubs where superhumans battle each other for sport. Her grandmother was the original Roulette who battled the original Mr. Terrific, while dating his brother Ned. As Veronica grew up she at some point learned of her legacies and came to believe Mr. Terrific to be her grandfather rather than granduncle and believed the current Mr. Terrific unworthy of the name, she then battled the JSA and it's members multiple times. Heroes that have died while battling in her ring are the third Firebrand, the first Maxi-Man, FlyBoy, Pterodon, Behemoth, Gorgon, and Prometheus of The Hybrid and Impala of the Global Guardians.
There is a wall dedicated to the fallen called Fallen Players of the House. A picture of Scirocco and Touch N' Go are on the wall. They have been seen as members of Circe's all female group.
Roulette was created by Geoff Johns and Rags Morales, first appearing in JSA Secret Files #2, September 2001.

Roulette appears in the animated series, Justice League Unlimited, in the episodes "The Cat and The Canary" and "Grudge Match". She owns the House, as she does in the comics. Most of the fighters in the house in JLU are meta-humans,such as Black Canary, Huntress and Fire.
In "The Cat and The Canary", Black Canary is forced to fight her mentor Wildcat. Green Arrow steps in and fights Wildcat. In the end when the fight is over, Black Canary destroys The House.
In "Grudge Match", Roulette and Sonar use his sound mastery to control many female members of the league and forces them to fight against each other. Uneasy allies Black Canary and Huntress eventually stop Roulette and become friends in the process.

Roulette has made a few appearances on the live-action television show Smallville.
She met Green Arrow when he was down on his luck and gave him a red pill to swallow. However, the pill caused him to fall unconscious. When he awoke, Green Arrow found himself lying in a coffin. Roulette then helped him to escape, in the episode she is more of a mercenary than boss of any sort. She has been seen working for Toyman, but who she has been assigned to kill is unknown.
