Sorry for the double post, can't edit on this thread.

Would like to see a progressive jackpot (much like all casinos have) that might incite more ppl to play knowing that not all of their ap is going directly into your pocket.  


this would be nice, maybe 5 ap of every spin goes into jackpot,

and it caps out at 50k AP or something.

For your health!

Great idea, but the low number appear way too often. This will not make players happy. I know I'm not happy because I just spent 200+ AP (free AP, that is) on getting 0's, 5's and 10's. Make it at least so that people earn back what they just paid (25 AP) so they can try again. Make the odds for 50 and 100 higher so people can have at least a small profit. These 0, 5 and 10's will drive people away from the wheel. I know I wouldn't try this again if I have real paid AP and it hasn't changed by then.

Well, I don't buy AP, but at least with the normal one you get (For wolfteam) a Smoke Grenade as the worst prize. It is something, unlike the 0 AP in this.

I think this is a fantastic idea! After 15 minutes of rolling I made a slight profit... but thoroughly addictive without having to sell the junk that I normally win on the other loot wheels!!!

If that was the case then people would gain back all they lost and keep trying only to get more AP out of it. Not much of a good idea.

Sadly, I don't think letting players get a profit is the point of this Loot Wheel. It's following more in the footsteps of actual gambling and casino games, where they, the casino (AeriaGames) always win in the end. How much they win depends on how generous they are feeling with the probability rates.

Ok, I'm fairly new to Aeria in general. So I'd take my opinion on the ap loot wheel lightly.

Anyways.

I just barely log on and saw the testing for the AP loot wheel my first reaction was "AWESOME I COULD GET EM' MUNNIES" but as I started it up and looked it I tried to see the prizing and I felt a bit of a "Ugh" feeling. Just seeing the fact that you can lose AP makes me feel more uneasy than getting a shotty item.

For instance I did one roll and got a five.. So I basically lost 20 and felt pretty bummed about it.

But when I use the megaten loot wheel and get some shoddy item I don't feel as half as bad cause I use that item.

See the difference?

I feel that the AP loot wheel sounds like a great idea but the thought of losing money you spent just makes it more depressing.

The only use I can see out of this is if there is an awesome event *ie. Tier spending* this would be a good way to cycle through AP to reach the levels faster without buying items you don't need.



But like I said don't have enough experience with Aeria games in general to say something.

Got 0 3 spins in a row, all 3 when it was about to land on 50,000.


I say rigged, I'm guessing it's made so that if it's about to fall on 50,000 it moves over to the next one.

so no, I'm not trying again.

Here's what I got

AP To Gamble With: 2,500 ap
# Spins: Over 510 spins (About 51 of the 10 Spins plus a few single spins)
Highest Amount per 10 Spin: 370 ap
Ending Ap: 357 ap, still playing now until I win more than 500 in a single 10x spin or can't play anymore

Watching the wheel animation is pointless, the entire thing is predetermined the second you click Spin, if not sooner. If you start a 10 spin and refresh the page anytime before it finishes, all your winnings will be listed (zero ap however will not show up).
