Wheel of Fortune Format and Cast

Pat Sajak

The basic format of the show is based on hangman where three players compete in a round to guess the unknown words in a puzzle, which is shown on a board of 52 monitors. The host initially reveals the category and viewers can see it on the bottom of their screen. Crossword puzzles have been included since 2016 and in those rounds, the host offers a clue combining the words in the puzzle instead of a category.

The competitors can win by solving all the words in the crossword by saying them in any order without repeating a word or any extra words. The main Wheel of Fortune is a wheel in the form of a roulette with 24 wedges and they are labeled with amounts ranging between $500 to $5,000. The wheel also has two Bankrupt wedges and one Lose a Turn wedge.

Pat Sajak and Vanna White have been the hosts of the show since the beginning and they will also present the upcoming season. Any other changes have not been announced.
