To clarify, if you get one ace in your hand (but not blackjack), you get even money on your $5 side bet, meaning the dealer gives you $10 back. When I or someone else has gotten a pair of aces, we got the same payout, it's not like we got double or anything like that.

It's one of those side bets where the red circles light up and the dealer locks the side bets up in the rack. Also, it's typically a $10 table, but sometimes $15 during busier times.



As per the link I posted.

By placing a Bonus Spin progressive side bet, players have two ways they can win:

-If they have an Ace in their first two cards, they are paid even money.
-If they are dealt a Blackjack, they will press a button that spins a virtual wheel in order to win various money denominations, including a top prize progressive.

Sounds like your talking about the AGS side bet......

I don't remember what this game is exactly called, but it's at Motor City in Detroit. The main hook is that there's a $5 side bet where if you get blackjack, you get to press a button to spin a digital wheel. I believe the possible landing spots are $50, $55, $60, $65, $70, $80, $90, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, and Jackpot (which is always $5,000). If you get one ace, you get even money (same for two aces I believe).

Predictably, people who spin the wheel mostly get the lower payouts. I have seen a guy get $1,000 on there before. I've played a few times since I try almost everything. Best I did was $500 and $250 on back-to-back hands! I have no clue how you would figure out a house edge on this game since I have no idea how the mechanics of the wheel work or what the odds or paybacks are. Also, it's a 6/5 table...



Harrah's is/was running a similar sidebet this past year, but the big prize was.a Kounts Kustom motorcycle valued about 25k. $5 flat bet, 6 deck shoe. Any ace 1st 2 cards paid 2 for 1. Any blackjack spins the wheel. Very countable. Minimum payback $50. I enjoyed playing it.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I'd think you'd just have to set up the probabilities as the Wizard does on his page for the side bet:


Outcome Pays Probability Return
Jackpot ($5k) 1,000 units .0833 83.3333
$1,000 200 units .0833 16.6667
$500 100 units .0833 8.3333
... ... ... ...


Of course there's no way they have equal probability, as that would be quite the player edge ;-). Can anyone get them to confirm the actual odds of hitting each of the spaces? Or is it listed on IGT, or is it "variable" and set by the casinos?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Personally, I don't list prize wheel side bets in my list of them because the prizes are weighted. They won't tell you the weights, so the odds can't be quantified.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
