History of this Spinner Wheel

AhaSlides is all about making presentations of any kind fun, colourful and engaging. That’s why we decided in May 2021 to develop the AhaSlides Spinner Wheel πŸŽ‰

The idea actually started outside the company, at Abu Dhabi University. It started with the director of Al-Ain and Dubai campuses, Dr Hamad Odhabi, a long-term fan of AhaSlides for its ability to improve engagement amongst students under his care.

He put forward the suggestion of a random wheel spinner to give him the ability to select students by chance. We loved his idea and we immediately got to work. Here’s how it all played out…

  • 12th May 2021: Created the first draft of the spinner wheel, including the wheel and the play button.
  • 14th May 2021: Added the spinner pointer, entry box and the entry list.
  • 17th May 2021: Added the entry counter and the entry ‘window’.
  • 19th May 2021: Refined the final look of the wheel and added ending celebration pop-up.
  • 20th May 2021: Made the spinner wheel compatible with AhaSlides’ in-built profanity filter.
  • 26th May 2021: Refined the final version of the audience view of the wheel on mobile.
  • 27th May 2021: Added the ability for participants to add their name to the wheel.
  • 28th May 2021: Added the ticking sound and celebration fanfare.
  • 29th May 2021: Added the ‘update wheel’ feature to allow new participants to join the wheel.
  • 30th May 2021: Made final checks and released the spinner wheel as our 17th slide type.

We’ll keep all updates to the spinner wheel logged above. Check back here to see what’s new!

The Spinner Wheel in Game Shows

Randomiser wheels such as this have a long history of realising and dashing dreams across TV. They are also to be addressed as roulette wheel spinner, online roulette wheel spinner or roulette wheel generator.

They were trendy amongst 70s American game shows, when viewers quickly got hooked on the intoxicating whirlpool of light and sound that could bring vast riches to ordinary people.

The spinner wheel spun into our hearts from the early days of the smash hit Wheel of Fortune. Its ability to enliven what was essentially a televisual game of Hangman, and retain viewer interest to the present day, really told of the power of random wheel spinners and ensured that gameshows with wheel gimmicks would continue to flood in throughout the 70s.

In that period, The Price is Right, Match Game and The Big Spin became masters in the art of spin, employing enormous picker wheels to select numbers, letters and amounts of money in a random fashion.

Though most wheel spinners spun their course in 70s-inspired TV shows, there are occasional examples of ones that have been thrust back into limelight. Mainly the short-lived Spin the Wheel, produced by Justin Timberlake in 2019, and a 40-foot wheel which is by far the most ostentatious in TV history.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions about AhaSlides Spinner The Wheel? How to custom it? We've got answers.

AhaSlides spinner wheel can support up to 10,000 entries (that's more than any other spinner wheel on the web!) You may notice that if you have more than 60 entries, the words will disappear from the wheel and the segments will no longer grow thinner with each added entry. This is simply to save space on the wheel and allow for the huge number of entries to fit without issue.
Sure you can! We don't discriminate at AhaSlides πŸ˜‰ You can type any foreign character or paste any copied emoji into the random picker wheel. Be aware that foreign characters and emojis can look different on different devices.
Certainly. Using an ad blocker doesn't affect the performance of the spinner wheel at all (because we don't run adverts on AhaSlides!)
Nope. There are no secret hacks for you or anyone else to make the wheel spinner show a result more than any other result. The operation is 100% random and cannot be influenced.
The easiest way to do this is to have two separate windows side-by-side, both open to this page. You can press spin on both wheels at roughly the same time, though obviously the one you spin first will be slightly ahead of the other. Note that the wheel is mobile-friendly, so it's possible to have synchronised spins if you spin a wheel on both your desktop and phone.
We're always busy working on updates for the wheel. We have plans to add many more features and many more ways to customise the wheel in the future! All updates will be logged in our changelog below.
It does! The dark mode randomiser wheel isn't available here, but you're able to use it with a free account on AhaSlides. Simply start a new presentation, select the Spinner Wheel slide type, then change the background to a dark colour. Your spinner wheel will automatically update in dark mode, and will look something like this πŸ‘‡
