A slightly psychedelic new brain teaser is putting people’s eyes and minds in a spin.
This puzzling picture, devised by Casumo.com, shows many, many roulette wheels, overlapping in what is quite a disorientating way.
Each of these roulette wheels has the traditional green zero, all except one which features a black one instead. It’s up to the puzzler to figure out which of the wheels this is…
For those unfamiliar with the ways of the roulette wheel, players can place bets on individual numbers, a split between numbers, a range of numbers or either black or red. New rules apply if the ball falls on the green 0. The gambler can bet on the green 0 should they so wish, but the odds are much lower.
According to Casumo.com spokesperson Gregory Tatton-Brown:
The sound of a ball bouncing over a roulette table is one of the most exciting in the world.
As it pings around, you can never be sure where it’s going to land – but usually, if it lands on the green zero, it’s not good news.
In our puzzle, one of the wheels is missing its green landing pad, with the 0 being black instead – but it’s not easy to see which one at first glance.
Roulette is a game of luck not skill, but this puzzle will definitely test your talent for spotting something amiss.
