Welcome to Roulette: The Little Wheel
You heard about it in the poll and now here it is
I’m trying to iron out the wrinkles on this one and I think it’s almost ready to go, but I want to get some community feedback before we run an actual give away with it.
There are no prizes here, folks. This thread exists so we can make this a playable game and eventually get a real prize pool to go with it.
- There are eighteen (18) Animal cells
- There are eighteen (18) Food cells
- And one (1) Skull cell
Proposed Entry Instructions
Everyone begins with 1,000 to play three (3) spins
Make three (3) wagers (one per spin), each which consist of -
- An non-zero amount of gems
- and a bet
Bets are selected from the following table -
Bet Pay Example Left Half 1:1 columns (1 - 6) Right Half 1:1 columns (7 - 12) Animal 1:1 any animal cell (Animals) Food 1:1 any food cell (Foods) Dozen 2:1 columns (1 - 4), (5 - 9), or (9 - 12) Row 2:1 (A), (B), or (C) Corner 8:1 intersection of any 4 cells ( ) Column 11:1 (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), (8), (9), (10), (11), or (12) Pair 17:1 intersection of any 2 cells ( ) Single 35:1 any single non-skull cell ()
Entry Example 1: Sally
We see a Pair bet, a Row bet, and a Single bet. All 1,000 gems are wagered. If all bets are lost, Sally ends with 0 gems.
500 on ( )
300 on (A)
200 on ()
Entry Example 2: Alice
We see a Half bet, Animal bet, and a Corner bet. Only 700 gems are wagered. If all bets are lost, Alice still ends with 300 gems.
300 on (7-12)
200 on (Animals)
200 on ( )
Entry Example 3: Cindy
We see a Food bet, a Column bet, and a Dozen bet. Only 900 gems are wagered. If all bets are lost, Cindy still ends with 100 gems.
200 on (Foods)
500 on (3)
200 on (1 - 4)
There will be three (3) spins, to coincide with each player’s three (3) wagers. Each spin pays out the player’s wagered amount of gems based on the Pay column in the betting table.
Let’s see some example spins and how the players would score –
- First spin:
- Second spin:
- Third spin:
|Sally||1||500 on ( )||17:1||9,000|
|2||300 on (A)||2:1||900|
|3||200 on ()||35:1||0|
|Alice||1||300 on (7-12)||2:1||900|
|2||200 on (Animals)||1:1||400|
|3||200 on ( )||8:1||1800|
|Cindy||1||200 on (Foods)||1:1||400|
|2||500 on (3)||11:1||6,000|
|3||200 on (1 - 4)||2:1||0|
A results in a loss for everyone on that spin. It’s possible (but highly improbable) that the skull could appear on all three (3) spins.
|Sally||0||9,000 + 900||9,900|
|Alice||300||900 + 600 + 1,800||3,600|
|Cindy||100||600 + 6,000||6,700|
I think we’ll do winners like we’ve done in Lottery 1. Scores will be ordered highest-to-lowest and the top scores will be eligible to pick a prize
Thoughts and Feedback
This game seems like it will be the most demanding on the players. Rules will have to be followed very closely in order to produce a valid entry. I want to get out as many snags as possible while still keeping the betting options plentiful and fun. Please send me any ideas or feedback on how you think the entire process could be improved.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to seeing you in Roulette 1.
