I rinsed out all my ap to little or 0 ap lol,,, ironically i keep getting 10ap - 20ap constantly lool,, every time i get near to the 20k, the pointer spins faster or decreases its speed dot on 10ap, i think something is not right there >.>

is it an if statement? if ppl buy more ap + 0.1% increase jackpot? lol i dont care but next time i wont be fooled into playing an ap game that rinses out ap slowly Smile

The idea that the wheel "shows" an equal chance at winning anything on the wheel when in all reality it is rigged and the probability of winning isn't shown anywhere makes it a bit unethical.

I have three cards: One has a $1 bill under it, another has a $5 bill, and the last has a $100 bill. You get to choose one. You have what appears to be a 1/3 chance to get the $100 bill. As you are about to pick up that $100 bill card, I quickly switch it and force you to get the $1 bill card. Good game!  


+1 for this explanation

After trying out luck boxes in Eden Eternal, I only go for the guaranteed wins. I bought 20 boxes that listed 6 clothing items and one junk item, and got the junk item every single time. Rigged odds. It makes sense for business though. If you were out there to make a profit which a company such as this needs to make its money somewhere in this nice capitalistic economy, you wouldn't make the odds all that great. I personally feel safer just paying for my AP and spending it on guaranteed items.

Y'know all gambling things like mboxes and loot wheels are just Brilliant, sure ppl will get curious and try but really it's just one big farce. Leave the money scamming to the casinos.

99AP*I'll pass.

You want a fun idea make the free loot box like a wheel with 1 free spin an hour but for 5 AP you can keep spinning. Have a prize that's 5000 AP so even a free spinner has a chance to win

Well in all honesty, I don't mind the way it is now. 99 AP is fine, and the 20,000 max. reward makes sense. The chances may be a bit crappy, but it is meant to be a gamble after all. I wouldn't mind seeing the 99 AP lowered though...I think everybody likes cheaper things. Ya'll have to remember that it isn't supposed to be easy to win...Aeria can't just give out free money - they are a business.

That being said, I still stand by my previous point that the wheel in its current state is deceiving and unethical. The fact that the wheel does not represent the true percent chances at winning does in fact make this a scam. It needs to be clearly stated or displayed in the wheel itself, and this goes for [u]all[u] of Aeria's wheels, that there isn't necessarily a 1/20 chance (or whatever it is) at winning the 20,000 AP and that you are more likely to win the 45 AP (or others) than anything else. It also needs to be represented in a clear and understandable manner.

My complaints may be for naught, but I figure I may as well try and reason. Razz
