Wheel is one of Stake’s easiest games to learn and comes with great profit potential – It’s one that is befitting to both lower and higher wagers depending on the settings chosen and is great for building profit quickly with a little luck.
Once you read through our guide, hopefully you’ll get a better understanding of how the game is played and be able to come up with your own style of play.
The game wheel is one played on exactly that – A wheel! This game is great for beginners and advanced players alike and has been known to bring much profit to ones who spin for their fortune.
In wheel, there are just two settings you need to know about before spinning: Risk level and segments.
Pretty easy right?
For risk level, there’s low, medium and high settings which based on the setting you choose the payouts are adjusted accordingly. Traditionally, lower risk settings are better for higher wagering amounts. Whereas the high risk setting is great for multiplying lower wager amounts into much greater amounts.
However, this will all depend on your total bank roll which should be taken into account when selecting which risk you play at.
Wheel has a max payout of 49.5x when played on high risk at max segments. In terms of segments, there are 5 settings to choose from: 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50. Selecting 10 segments splits up the wheel into 10 even segments and the same goes for each respective segment setting.
Based on which risk setting and segments you select, the payout hit zones can either be clustered together or spaced out.
What does this mean?
It means that there can be times where you can take advantage of this by increasing your bet and getting multiple hits in a row, especially on the lower segments. If you aren’t sure where to start with wheel’s settings, a sweet spot is selecting high risk + 10 segments which has a payout of 9.9x.
If you’ve ever played 9.9x on Stake’s dice game, you can get a good idea with the frequency of hits it can produce.
Keep in mind though, this can greatly vary due to the RNG that Stake implements to ensure that every game round is truly random. On a lucky day, you can easily hit multiple fold and increase your profits significantly!
Wheel Game Mechanics
The mechanics of Wheel are quite simple just like the game itself. Each segment is designated a number and the result produced will match up to a specific segment on the wheel. This is calculated by multiplying the float by the total possible outcomes for the segment selected.
This is then correlated to the proper payout for Wheel using the following index and game event translation:
It may look complex, but in reality, Wheel is quite simple especially compared to generating other game results. As with any games at Stake, you can always verify each and every bet using our verifier to ensure that all bets made truly adhere to the definition of a provably fair system.

Wheel Advanced Features
Keno also comes with a few different advanced features which can be leveraged to the players benefit:
+ Auto Mode
Here, you can select your risk level and segments and let your computer do the rest. As with other auto modes for our other games, you have the option of selecting options such as number of bets, increase on loss/win, and stop on profit/loss. We highly recommend using these extra variables to ensure that you get the most out of playing wheel on auto mode.
As well as autobet mode, players can also enable hotkeys to bet using a keyboard rather than a mouse. Hotkeys can be used to efficiently manipulate the bet amount and placing a bet all at the stroke of pre-mapped keys for each.
+ Instant Bet
For players who are looking to increase the speed of playing wheel and not having to wait for it to spin each round, Stake has added an Instant Bet setting. Using the Instant Bet setting will greatly increase the speed at which you can play, resulting in more bets placed per hour.
As we’ve discussed, wheel is a game of simplicity yet one that can produce some impressive results on a lucky day. Whether you’re a highroller or just looking to get your feet wet in the crypto gaming world, wheel is definitely one that you can pick up and play immediately and still generate fantastic results. We wish you much luck on your spins and hope that this guide has helped you understand how things work on the Wheel at Stake.
