The Money Wheel, also known as The Big 6 Wheel and the Wheel of
Fortune, is one of the first games you run into when entering a casino.
It has a large wheel (4 ft in diameter) mounted vertically and divided
into 45 evenly spaced sections. Each section contains one of seven
symbols (the numbers 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, Joker and Jackpot). When the
wheel spins, a stiff leather strap slaps against the pegs and eventually
brings the wheel to a stop with the strap resting between two pegs. The
number or symbol shown between those two pegs is the winner.
Players simply place bets on which number or symbol they think the
strap will point to when the wheel comes to rest. Players can bet on as
many spots as they like. (But keep in mind only one number or
symbol will win each spin.)
