Winwheel.js example: Basic code-drawn wheel

Here is an example of a basic prize wheel / winning wheel drawn on HTML canvas by the Winwheel.js JavaScript library. Rather than having to write the code to draw all the lines, arcs and fills needed to create this, you just specify some parameters in to the Winwheel contructor and Winwheel.js creates it all for you.

After choosing a power level and clicking 'Spin' the wheel animates for a few seconds, spinning to a stop with the prize won alerted to the user.

This example is included in the Winwheel.js download: /examples/basic_code_wheel/index.html
