§ 619a.1. Big Six Wheel layout; physical characteristics.

 (a)  Big Six Wheel gaming shall be conducted at a circular wheel at least 5 feet in diameter. Except as provided in subsection (c), the rim of the wheel must be divided into 54 equally spaced sections with 23 sections containing a $1 symbol, 15 sections containing a $2 symbol, 8 sections containing a $5 symbol, 4 sections containing a $10 symbol, 2 sections containing a $20 symbol, 1 section containing a picture of a flag, the name or logo of the certificate holder or other unique symbol, and 1 section containing a picture of a joker or other unique symbol. The sections must be covered with glass.

 (b)  Except as provided in subsection (c), the sections required under subsection (a) must be arranged clockwise around the rim of the wheel in the following order: joker, $1, $2, $1, $5, $2, $1, $10, $1, $5, $1, $2, $1, $20, $1, $2, $1, $5, $2, $1, $10, $1, $2, $5, $1, $2, $1, flag or logo, $2, $5, $2, $1, $2, $1, $10, $1, $5, $1, $2, $1, $20, $1, $2, $1, $5, $2, $1, $10, $1, $2, $5, $1, $2 and $1.

 (c)  With prior approval in accordance with §  601a.10(a) (relating to approval of table game layouts, signage and equipment), a certificate holder may use symbols that depict fruit or other themed symbols in lieu of the dollar symbols specified in subsections (a) and (b).

 (d)  Each section of the wheel must also display the payout odds in §  619a.3 (relating to payout odds) for the wager. For example, the payout odds for the $2 or other approved symbol are 2 to 1. That section of the wheel must therefore display a 2.

 (e)  The wheel must contain a clapper capable of selecting a particular section of the wheel upon the conclusion of the spin.

 (f)  Each Big Six Wheel table must have a drop box and a tip box attached on the same side of the gaming table as, but on opposite sides of, the dealer, as approved by the Bureau of Casino Compliance in accordance with §  601a.10(g).

 (g)  The layout for a Big Six Wheel table shall be submitted to the Bureau of Gaming Operations and approved in accordance with §  601a.10(a) and contain, at a minimum:

   (1)  The name or logo of the certificate holder.

   (2)  Specific betting areas for the placement of wagers including:

     (i)   Symbols for $1, $2, $5, $10 and $20 or other approved symbols in accordance with subsection (c).

     (ii)   A flag, the name or logo of the certificate holder or other unique symbol as it appears on the wheel.

     (iii)   A joker or other unique symbol as it appears on the wheel.

   (3)  The payout odds for each of the permissible wagers.

§ 619a.2. Wagers and rotation of the wheel.

 (a)  Prior to the spin of the wheel, the dealer shall announce ‘‘no more bets.’’

 (b)  The wheel shall be spun by the dealer in either direction and must complete at least three revolutions to constitute a valid spin.

 (c)  A wager shall be settled in accordance with the wager’s position on the layout when the clapper comes to rest in a section of the wheel.

 (d)  If the clapper comes to rest between two numbers or symbols upon completion of the spin of the wheel, the spin shall be void and the dealer shall respin the wheel.

 (e)  Upon completion of the spin, the dealer shall first collect all losing wagers and then pay off all winning wagers in accordance with §  619a.3 (relating to payout odds).

§ 619a.3. Payout odds.

 A certificate holder shall pay out winning Big Six Wheel wagers at no less than the odds in the following paytable:

$5 symbol or other approved alternate symbol 5 to 1
