Spin Shenanigans is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.

Puzzle

This roulette wheel isn't behaving as it should! Instead of stopping at random, the ball seems to land on numbers according to some unknown rule.

On successive spins, the ball lands on 10, 9, 8, 5, then 3.

Where will the ball land next?

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The rule for this sequence of numbers is only possible on a spinning wheel.

What could it be?

Take a look at all the numbers on the wheel in order. Do you notice anything strange?

Is there one missing?

The ball landed on 10, 9 8, then 5. Starting on 10, count how many spaces there are around the wheel until you reach the 9, then from the 9 to the 8, and from the 8 to the 5. You should see a pattern start to emerge.

Did you count the spaces from the 10 to the 9?

If you need a bit more help, make sure you're counting counterclockwise, and everything should become clear.
