YOU ARE NOT GAMBLING ON THE OUTCOME OF THE WHEEL IT IS FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY.


Nowhere does it list the chances of winning the prizes.
The wheel is not to be taken as a mathematical representation of the odds.

In case you missed mousie's explanation. You based your whole argument based on the assumption on that and everyone has pointed out that is a mistake.
Personally loot forge pays off better than loot wheels in AGE games, just control yourself and make sure to take the payout once the prize is useful and more than the AP invested.
Take it as a lesson in AGE crappy sales tactics and move on.

^ This. What I'm TRYING to tell you is that according to your logic, since the odds of getting something for the loot wheel aren't as equal as shown on the wheel, it's automatically rigged. Better throw slot machines into that mix, because more often than not, you get nothing when you place a bet, and if you do, it's low. Add lotteries in as well, considering that the chances of getting the jackpot are intentionally low for THOSE, too.
The problem with your logic is that your stating that ALL odds should be completely known at all times, and if the odds are unknown to the one taking the gamble, then it's automatically unfair and rigged. This simply isn't true, and you're trying to fight against a game of chance using only what you know at face value. Sure, if the odds aren't visible, you might not be as likely to determine the proper odds of getting a jackpot, but does that mean it's rigged to NEVER give you a jackpot? No. It just means that you'll have a VERY hard time getting it, but not necessarily "rigged" (as jackpots are naturally given VERY low chances, as they can be extremely valuable/build up with consecutive plays).
As for not saying why I called flawgic, I COULD'VE explained why, but 1) I would have to summarize everything you said into one sentence, which Alastoreo has already done in his post, 2) others have tried to point out why, but in the end you dismissed and IGNORED their reasoning and continued as if their views were always wrong, and 3) I didn't want to, because as I said, this thread is already a BLAZING INFERNO OF POINTLESS FLAMING! In fact, anything else that's said in this thread will just be adding fuel to the fire.
But alas, even through all this, I must state ONE fact: the loot wheel is ran by a randomnumber generator (RNG) system instead of an actual wheel system. The wheel is just there for looks, and like ALL RNG systems like this one, it's been programmed so that every number in it (however many that may be) is assigned different items. This means that the jackpot might be sitting pretty within only ONE of those numbers, while the rest of the numbers are distributed among the remaining prizes, based on value/rarity, with more valuable prizes having less numbers assigned, and less valuable prizes having more numbers. Then, once you choose to use the "wheel", the program chooses a number AT RANDOM among those used, with numbers outside of the range being exempt and ignored, then executes the proper action depending on what's chosen: all of this done within a matter of seconds.
Many game companies have used this for luckbased items to give random chances at rare, valuable prizes, whether for free or by online currency. Loot Boxes, lucky boxes, loot wheel, loot forge, random chance items: you name something computerprogrammed that gives random items within a set, there's an RNG programmed right inside it.
So next time you're confronted with a game company's random chance system that LOOKS like it has equal chances, always remember that there's an RNG that decides if it's equal or not depending on the prizes, and not what you yourself think.
tl:dr? It's not rigged, as your logic is trying to state. The prizes ARE given equal chances, but in the sense that the equality is based on the value and rarity of the prizes in question. An exception would be if every prize had the same odds as another, regardless of value, but this is VERY rare among game companies, and usually only done with items of equal value.
