Watch Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune is an American game show airing since 1975. The game play of the show consists of solving fill in the blank word puzzles much like the game hangman. Contestants compete for cash and prizes that are randomly chosen as they spin a large, colorful wheel with dollar amounts and other prizes, such as trips and cars.

Each round of the game contains a word puzzle based on a category. Contestants then spin the wheel to determine how much money each letter they guess is worth. If a contestant guesses a letter that is featured in the puzzle, they get that amount multiplied by the number of times the letter appears. They can spin again or solve. If the letter they guessed isn't in the puzzle, they lose their turn and the next contestant spins.

At the end of the main play, the contestant with the most money moves on to a final round. There they spin a smaller wheel with envelopes to determine their prize, usually cash or a car. The contestant must solve a shorter puzzle within 10 seconds. They can pick four letters that may appear and are automatically given six letters that may appear.
