I took some photos of what appears to be an old casino game now used as art on the wall of a casino I passed through.

It looks like a big six wheel but with a Sic Bo motif.

Any thoughts on where this may have been and what it was?

Here's something on H. C. Evans.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Thanks they have a pic of this same style wheel but no information on it.

It's a beautiful wheel on the wall as you see from the pics I supplied so it got me fascinated.

Paraphrasing:
Players may bet on numbers 1-6.
Different payouts based on the number of times the dice show the number wagered.
House edge: 22%
May the cards fall in your favor.

thank you.

It's called a Dice Wheel (wow, so inventive)

Pays similar to Sic Bo. pick one of the six numbers on a die and when it lands on the three die combo One die pays 1:1, two die 2:1 and three dice 3:1.

22.2% house edge, ouch!

I am more interested to know how a secret blue book version may have differed from the more common version.

I would find it hilarious if a licensed casino was using a gaffed wheel as a prominent piece of decor, sending the subtle message that 22.2% isn't enough.
May the cards fall in your favor.

In other words, it's a wheel-based version of Chuck-A-Luck
