Neopets Wheel of Misfortune Guide

Out in the Deserted Fairground is Neopia’s spookiest, most terrifying wheel: the Wheel of Misfortune. As this wheel does not offer an avatar and has more unfortunate prizes than good prizes, it might be best to steer clear of the creepy old thing. Still, if you’re a gambler or you simply love games, give it a whirl! But don’t say we didn’t warn you.


If your faction wins the Battleground of the Obelisk, you have the opportunity to use the Right Round Right Round boon. Activating this would allow you to spin all of the wheels twice before needing to wait to spin again. You do have to pay a second time. To get your second spin, you need to refresh the page after your first spin.


Interestingly, this wheel has far fewer prizes than the other wheels in Neopia. That means there is more of a chance of landing on something misfortunate than not, so watch out!

  1. You active pet gets a random disease.
  2. You win a random gift.
  3. You win a random spooky petpet.
  4. You lose a random amount of neopoints.
    NOTE: You can end up with negative neopoints.
  5. One item in your inventory becomes a Pile of Sludge.
    NOTE: This is currently glitched and you will not have an item replaced by a Pile of Sludge.
  6. Your active pet will “forget” a book that they have read, meaning you will need to re-read the book to them if you want it to count towards its books read.
  7. You win anywhere between 2 and 4,000np.
  8. The Pant Devil steals an item from your inventory.
