Storyline

Contestants guess hidden phrases by guessing letters one at a time. Contestants win money or prizes, as determined by a spin of the wheel, for each correct consonant they guess. But they have to pay to see what vowels are in a puzzle. The contestant that has amassed the most winnings at the end of a game goes on to play the bonus round, in which the player can win even more -- prizes frequently seen in the bonus round include automobiles, vacations and more cash.

I'm crazy about Wheel of Fortune!
9 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I really like Wheel of Fortune. I watch it every night. I think the puzzles are interesting and everyone seems so nice and it is exciting when people win. I think Vanna is very pretty and I like to check out what she's wearing. Pat sometimes says funny things and keeps the game going. I also like playing the Wheel of Fortune TV game. I've won several million dollars and tons of prizes. Not really, of course, but in the virtual world I did. It's fun. I usually play this game in the morning when my mother is busy getting ready for the day. I really look forward to it and it is part of my regular routine. I would miss it if I couldn't do it. I can't do a lot of things that other kids my age do because I am in a wheelchair. I need some interesting things to pass the time and this is one of them.
