Rules and Strategies for
Also known as the wheel of fortune or the money wheel, the big six can be found in almost
every casino. It's called the big six because there are six different payoffs.
Bets are made by placing your money on the layout in one of the boxes. These boxes
correspond to the numbers on the wheel and indicate the payoff rates. There are 54 slots
on the wheel:
23 - $1 spots
15 - $2 spots
8 - $5 spots
4 - $10 spots
2 - $20 spots
1 - joker spot
1 - casino spot
Bet $1 on the $1 spot and you get paid even money; bet $1 on the $2 spot and get paid 2 to
1; bet $1 on the $5 spot and get paid 5 to 1; and so on. Bet the joker or casino spots
(separately) and get paid 40 to 1.
The house edge on the big six is 14.8% on the $1 bets, and 24% on the joker or casino
bets. Well, think about it. If there are 54 slots on the wheel, shouldn't a $1 bet on the
joker pay 53 to 1?
