Wheel of Doge is similar to Wheel of Satoshi in being a spin-a-win game but it has notable differences and offers slightly more features than regular Bitcoin roulette. It has a very simple interface that may look a little too sparse for some but it particularly looks great on mobile. It is similar to Wheel of Satoshi in not requiring account registration and giving a unique URL to everyone who visits the site. However, it’s different and in a not so flattering way.
Know what these differences are by reading further into our Wheel of Doge review.
There is only one game on Wheel of Doge. Before you can play, you need to make a deposit (more on this below). Your deposited funds usually appear after around five minutes.
The Wheel of Doge game has 3 fields: How Many Bet, How Much Chance, and So Win!. To play, you just have to fill out two of these fields. The third field gets automatically filled out based on the details you entered on the other two fields.
Notice that when you enter a value on the How Much Chance field, the wheel gets divided into shaded and unshaded parts. The unshaded part is the part that allows you to win a prize. The value you can enter in this field is any number above 0 to 95. It can be in decimal points.
If you are ready with the numbers in your How Many Bet, How Much Chance, and So Win fields, you can then click Spin and wait for the results. If your marker lands on the unshaded area, you win the prize stated in your So Win! field.
It’s as simple as that. The wheel spins just like a real wheel so you can get that similar experience you get from playing with an actual spin a win wheel.
In case your browser freezes or your Internet connection gets disconnected while the wheel is still spinning, you don’t have to worry. The spinning wheel is just an animation intended for your visual enjoyment. The spinning of the wheel has no effect on the results. The results are quickly generated behind the scenes. If you actually won as your browser crashed, your prize is automatically added to your account balance. Conversely, if it’s a loss, the corresponding amount is removed from your balance.
Wheel of Doge, as the name implies, uses dogecoins (DOGE). However, it can also accept other altcoins through ShapeShfit. With this payment method, you can pay in bitcrystals (BCY), Black Coin (BLK), Bitshares, Clamcoin (CLAM), dash (DASH), digibyte (DGB), emercoin (EMC), ether (ETH), factoids (FCD), gemz (GEMZ), litecoin (LTC), nxt (NXT), reddcoin (RDD), storjX (SJCX), startcoin (START), counterparty (XCP), monero (XMR), Monacoin, Novacoin, Peercoin (PPC), Shadowcash, Vertcoin, Nubits, Counterparty, and ripple (XRP). Ahh and BTC!
The process of using ShapeShift is very simple. On the Add/Withdraw interface of Wheel of Doge, just click on the Pay with Altcoins button. A pop-up window will then appear and that window is basically the ShapeShift window. There’s no need to sign up for an account separately. You can immediately proceed to processing your payment. This window also automatically shows the DOGE equivalent of the currency you are using, along with the prevailing exchange rate, the deposit minimum, and deposit maximum. If you pay in bitcoins for example, at the time we did this Wheel of Doge review, the exchange rate was 1 BTC = 1993500.00000000 DOGE. ShapeShift is not a free service, though. A miner fee is charged for every transaction. It varies for every altcoin. If you want to know the specific miner fees, you can go to ShapeShift’s About page.
Anyway, to add funds to or withdraw from your account in dogecoins, you just have to click the purple Add Funds/Withdraw button. It’s a straightforward process. You just have to fill out the fields shown on the interface. Your deposit requires two confirmations so it may take around five minutes for it to be reflected on your account. There is no fee imposed on deposits but 2 DOGE will be automatically deducted from your payout in the case of withdrawals.
The Wheel of Doge Help page says that bet limits are listed on the entry fields. However, we found none of these bet limit details. As usual, we tried multiple web browsers to make sure that we provide accurate representation for this Wheel of Doge review. In all browsers we tried, none of these bet limit details is shown.
