Lucky Wheel is one of the most fun things to do while fighting your way to the throne in Clash of Kings. In this guide, we will help you through some of the grids to help you make the right decisions on what to open, and how to determine if more grid attempts are worthwhile, get better odds and turn a profit.
Lucky Wheel Basic Information
To access Lucky Wheel, you will find it via the Tavern. Every day you gets one free spin, after which each spin costs 1,000 copper. You have chances variety of items including Copper, Dragon Coins, Speed Up, Food, Wood, Iron, Mythril, Stamina, and finally a chest chest draw.
Treasure chest draw is a little game where you flip cards and get the items inside. Each additional flip costs exponential growing amount of Dragon Coins.
It should be noted that in more ways than others, Clash of Kings Lucky Wheel is rigged most of the time and odds is against you. Your best bet is to only go on when the rewards are worth it. The lucky chest is completely luck based and there is no hack nor cheat to beat it. The key is to play it like an intelligent gambler and only place bets when the rewards justify the risk.
You should generally never buy Dragon Coins with Gold as you will most likely waste Gold rather than winning. Use alliance honor points to buy Dragon Coins instead. Consider using this list to help you understand the cost and calculate. Practice with multiple draws and you will begin to see a pattern, and decide better gambles on the spot.

Lucky Wheel Treasure Chest Strategy and Analysis
Because of how the game is set, the first 2 draws are always no brainer because the cost of drawing is so low. You should always at least get two draws off any lucky chests attempts.
The next three draws determine whether or not you want to continue the game. If the grid offers a few multipliers, you generally should stop after hitting them. You want to hit the big multipliers last around step 7~8, so you have much better shot to complete the grid hitting the jackpot.
For example, if the grid offers x10, x5, and x2. You hit x10 on step 3, you should give up and quit after Step 4 after triggering the x10 reward. At this stage, the most likely reward you will get is x2 + jackpot, or last step by itself, which you will still end up losing.
The key to winning at Lucky Chest is to know when to stop and when to continue.
Best Luck Chest Grids to Go For
1. Grids with Lots of Gold
If you have plenty of Alliance Honor, and want to convert them into gold. Go for this option to convert some of that honor into Gold equivalent.
2. Speed Up Grids
Speed up offer the best value in Lucky Chest in our opinion. If you are a hard working player that has setup multiple farms, having more speed up can always help you to score and rank higher during daily events.
3. Grids with High Level Material Chests
Higher level materials needed for equipment forging can take a long time to farm. Clash of Kings appear to be more generous when valuing their material earned through Lucky Chest. These materials can cost thousands of gold when bought from the store or Traveling merchant.
Grids To Avoid
Generally for these grids, you should only go for the first 2~3 draws, anything beyond that is a money losing call.
1. Grids with Both Advanced Teleport and 1000 Gold
Chances are that when you see this type of grid, you will get the Advanced Teleport and 1000 Gold at step 8 or 9. This means that you should generally avoid it if you draw the multipliers early on.
2. Grids with No or Low Multipliers
You will most likely get your moneys worth in terms of Dragon Coins to Gold when you have high multipliers. You will most likely lose out with the trade for grids without any multipliers.
