It's no surprise that you'll see some of the more attractive dealers stationed at this game in most casinos. That's why when we walked into the Venetian the other day we were caught off guard by this new Big Six Wheel spouting off like a carnival barker in the distance. We were caught off guard by the volume of this machine while wandering the floor very early in search of a cup of coffee. It drew us in to see what was happening, but we probably won't return to play this game.
The Lucky Big Wheel is similar to the automated craps games we've seen in the casinos that don't need an attendant. While we understand the appeal of the less expensive craps game with bouncing dice, we're not sure we see the appeal of a big wheel that yells and spins by itself. We look at it as another way to throw $20 away as we wait for a friend. There's only so many times we can play The Hangover slot machine, after all.
