I like the idea, but I think replacing 0 with 1, 5 with 10, 10 with 20, and 50 with another 100 (Keeping the same odds as they are now, just changing the amounts on them) would greatly increase people wanting to do it.

Also: serious question, how the heck is this legal in places where gambling is illegal? This is nothing but gambling money for money, simple as that, and exactly what is outlawed in several states.  


You aren't gambling money, but an online currency with 0 real world value Smile  

you dont gamble with real money in a casino either you place 'chips' which have no monnetary value in the real world either. Both those chips and AP are purchased with real money though so you are in effect gambling with your money

Decided to give it a try since 34 AP was sitting there collecting dust. I like the concept as a way to get rid of small odd amounts of AP that won't be used any other way. Other then that...kinda useless.

Walked in with 34AP, walked out with 24AP. >.< The wheel actually stopped on the 50000AP spot and the little red ticker thing jumped up into the 10AP spot. *sigh* Wheel of Fortune this is not.

In short this is not something I will ever buy AP to try. If I do buy AP and somehow end up with an odd leftover amount that can't be used on anything I may toss it in just to get rid of it.

But his was free ap Razz
But understandable. Depending on how much you spend.
Just wish there was only one 0 ap option. But I guess that's what makes it...a challenge.

I tried twice only, knowing that my luck is horrible.
Both got me 0 AP lol
So, total AP I got was: - 50 AP
The last 0 was next to the Jackpot xD


*not gonna try again with horrible luck like this*

this is true i was merely pointing out the fact that if you liken the ap or any other loot wheel to a casino you are paying real money to play ergo gambling with real money.

My general question about this is the Prize List tab doesn't really match what's on the wheel.
It doesn't show 0 as an option on the Prize List.
So, if you do plan on using that, that will need to be looked at. xD;

Spun the wheel twice:
First spin: 5 AP
Second spin: 10 AP

I would definitely suggest getting rid of the 0 AP option.
Make the 0 AP 1 AP or 5 AP, but not 0.

Very Happy wow that was actually kinda fun...
just like a True Las Vegas slot machine

on 5$ (512) I went down to lowest 200, did over 100 Spins going up and down up and down up and down, got all the way to 897 AP (bought 3 bucks more than I started with) , but I said Wth...and decided to spin till Bust. After another 80 spins I finally ended up with 22 ap Razz

Morale of this lesson, just like any game of chance, learn to stop when you are ahead.
Greed will get the better of you. It's best to take your good fortune and stop when you're ahead lol.......But it was fun Razz I might try that again sometime
