Big Six Wheel
The Big Six wheel, also known simply as The Big Six, is an unequal game of chance, played using a large vertical wheel that can be spun.
Since 13 May 2002, it can be played legally in licensed casinos in the United Kingdom, under The Gaming Clubs (Bankers' Games) (Amendment) Regulations 2002 (Statutory Instrument 2002/1130).
The wheel is divided into a number of equal segments separated by spokes or pins. Each segment is associated with a number. The wheel is spun by a dealer, and the winning segment is indicated by a pointer mounted on a flexible piece of rubber or leather, which also rubs against the pins to impart friction and slow the wheel down.
Wheel of Fortune
Wheel of Fortune, a television game show in the United States, uses a similar wheel, but mounted horizontally rather than vertically (although a vertical wheel was used for the 1973 pilot).
