["Northern Pride", Ditsworth's Floating Casino]
A large wheel draws the attention of the crowds that fill this lavishly decorated room. People gather with anticipation around the enormous table in front of the wheel, and their cheers and laughter follow every spin. Some here entertain themselves in quiet conversation over good drink, paying little or no attention to the wheel at all. An Odds Board sits behind the wheel just above an armed guard who watches everyone carefully. You also see a large banner and a large sign.
Obvious exits: out.

Wheel Description

You see it is full of numbers with small nails mounted around the outside. A leather flap rides against the nails providing friction to slow it down, and select the final number.
