Plot Synopsis

In this syndicated version of the iconic WHEEL OF FORTUNE game show, three contestants compete by spinning The Wheel and calling out consonants for money or prizes, while also given the chance to buy vowels between spins. The first contestant to solve the puzzle wins the prizes he/she has amassed in the round, while the others' banks are depleted. The contestant who has won the most cash and prizes at the end of the main game is the big winner and plays in the Bonus Round for additional prizes.
