Wheel of Fortune Format and Cast

Pat Sajak

Wheel of Fortune is based on hangman. In each round, three players compete to be the first to guess all of the unknown words in a word puzzle, which is displayed visually on a board of 52 touch monitors. At the start of each round, the host reveals the category, which remains on the bottom of the viewer’s screen for the duration of the round.

Crossword puzzles were added to the rotation in 2016. In such rounds, the host gives a clue bonding the words in the puzzle instead of a category. Contestants win by solving all the words in the crossword by saying them in any order, as long as all of the words are said without any repetition or additional words.

The titular Wheel of Fortune is a roulette-style wheel with 24 wedges, each of which is divided into thirds. Most wedges are labeled with dollar amounts ranging from $500 to $900 and there is also a top dollar value wedge adorned with sequins: $2,500 in round 1, $3,500 in rounds 2 and 3, and $5,000 for round 4 and any subsequent rounds. An $850 wedge was added in 2021, replacing the Free Play that was removed the same year.

The wheel also features two Bankrupt wedges and one Lose a Turn wedge. Landing on either forfeits the contestant’s turn, with the Bankrupt wedge also eliminating any cash or prizes the contestant has accumulated within the round. Pat Sajak and Vanna White are expected to come back as hosts.
