Las Vegas Big Wheel Games

Big Wheel is sometimes referred to as Wheel of Fortune. It is typically found near casino entrances from Las Vegas Blvd or Fremont Street.

There are generally no chairs at a Big Wheel game. It is there to greet new guests. The dealers are often party pit girls.

The house will be happy to bring you a chair if you wish to play the game longer than a few spins. That is because the house edge is double digits for all numbers. Some are over 20 percent. It is typically the worst table game in a Las Vegas casino.

How To Play Big Wheel

Big Wheel is a luck-based game. It has the highest house edge of any table game spread in Las Vegas. Most bets hold at least 10 percent. Some are over 20 percent.

If you must play this game, we recommend choosing the video version where the house edge is less than half of the live game. You will also earn slot points on it.

Players make bets on the felt. The dealer spins the wheel. The number that it lands on win. The winning bet is multiplied by the winning number. The highest multiple is 50 times the bet. The higher the number, the less likely it is to hit.
