I'm not a card player, so I haven't a clue what this has to do with wheels.

The technique is good, the lightning is good, but since I'm not a card player, I don't see the relation with the Wheel theme.

I'm not really a gambler or poker player - but cannot see the relevance to the challenge in this image. Sorry.
