|Las Vegas Money Wheel Rules History
Known variously as Money Wheel, Big 6 Wheel and Wheel of Fortune, this familiar game is based on a popular carnival attraction that has its roots in the days of chariot warfare.
In the aftermath of battle, victorious soldiers often contested over the spoils of their fallen enemy. Anxious to avoid further bloodshed among their troops, commanders encouraged using games of chance to settle disputes. Those upended chariots strewn across the battlefield served this purpose nicely: A spear was thrust into the soil next to the wheel to serve as a reference point, and each contestant made his mark on the rim between two spokes. The wheel was given a good spin, and the soldier whose mark settled closest to the spear won the prize without a fight.
As swords were beat into plowshares, former soldiers brought their spinning game of chance to country festivals celebrating the harvest. One adaptation lead to the smaller horizontal wheels of Roulette, but the large vertical wheel remained a fixture of festivals because it could be easily seen by a crowd of people gathered in the fairway. That tradition has carried on to this day at many local carnivals and is even the centerpiece of a popular TV game show from America now shown all over the world.
Because of its popularity and easy-to-play premise, Money Wheel is probably the first game you'll see when walking into most casinos. It usually has a crowd pressing in from all sides, gasping and cheering as the wheel comes to a full stop. Part of the thrill is watching with anticipation as the wheel slows down and each outcome passes by more slowly than the last. Will it stop on this one? Or keep on to the next? Place your bets and join the fun!
|Las Vegas Money Wheel Rules Overview
The Money Wheel is a large wheel mounted vertically and divided into 54 sections by evenly spaced pegs. The space between each peg has one of seven symbols (the numbers 1, 2, 5, 10, 21, Joker-43 and Jackpot-43). 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 winning odds to a $1 bet. Bets placed on that number or symbol are paid at the indicated odds.
Players simply place bets on which number or symbol they think the strap will point to when the wheel comes to rest. The minimum bet is $1, and you can bet on as many spots as you like.
An exclusive feature of our Money Wheel is that we give you more ways to win on each spin. You can bet Against a 1, or for any high payout bet (5, 10, 21 or 43). We've segmented the 54 spots into 6 color regions, and you can bet on those, too. So, at our table, you can win three or four ways rather than just one. Plus we pay higher odds on big payout bets compared with standard 54-spot wheels.

|Las Vegas Money Wheel Rules Payout Table
Note: All payouts are rounded down to the nearest whole currency unit (for example, to cents in U.S. currency). Graphical representations of payouts are approximated to the nearest whole chip value and therefore may be different than your true payout, which is indicated accurately in text next to the stack.
|Las Vegas Money Wheel Rules How to Play
To start, click on a chip denomination in the control panel and then click on bet spots in the table layout to place bets. Each left-click on a bet spot places a chip and each right-click removes a chip. If you place more than the maximum bet on any given spot, your bet will automatically be reduced to the maximum allowed. The total amount of all the bets you have on the table will be shown in the Total Bet counter.
As you mouse-over each bet spot on the table layout, text will appear at the bottom of the control panel to tell you the bet name, payout odds, amount already placed and maximum bet for that spot. For example: "$5 bet on the Joker pays 43 to 1 ($50 Max Bet)".
Note that you do not have to bet the amount shown on the bet spots. You can bet hundreds on the $2 spot, or just $1 on the $10 spot. The spot numbers indicate what you’ll win for a $1 bet (the minimum). So, a $1 bet on the $10 spot wins $10.
When you have all your bets placed, you are ready to spin the wheel. Click Spin on the control panel. The wheel will spin up and then slowly come to a stop as the leather strap offers resistance to the pegs. When the strap settles between two pegs, the final value will appear on the Results Board on the left-hand side, winning bet spots will light up on the table, bets will be settled and the total amount paid out to you will be shown in the Message Window in the upper right.
Simply click Re-bet to replay the bets you had on the previous spin, or place new bets and click Spin for another round. Have fun and good luck!
