Only the best spins for me!!!
Got one of those too recently (they are rarer than keys) and gold + artifacts from the 2 spins.
(Hmm, Akerson at only 970 spins? *not sure if serious or trolling* I expected you way higher...)
Personally I don't mind "wheel of gold" too much since for me personally most T3 artifacts are capped, so artifacts likely is similar to a "zero gold" result and items 95% of the time likely are a "yuck, trash I need to clear out of my storage right now before I forget it".
But earlier on I guess free artifacts without risk of item breaks etc. could actually be more valuable than gold.
And yes, it has been discussed before that the roulette wheel is nice for visual reasons, but doesn't convey odds well. (maybe a slot machine would?)
