Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The show "Wheel of Fortune" first aired on syndicated television in the 1970's. What person was the creator of the show?

Merv Griffin was the creator of the original version of "Wheel of Fortune". He served as the executive producer of the show until his retirement in the year 2000. The other persons mentioned were all involved with the show.
2. When a contestant spins the wheel, it often lands on a dollar amount. According to the rules, what is the contestant to choose when this happens?

The dollar amounts on the big wheel are used when choosing one of 21 consonants to solve the word puzzle on the "Wheel of Fortune" game. Lose a turn and bankruptcy are other space options on the wheel along with possible prize offerings. Recently, a variation of choosing a vowel has been included.
3. The contestant chooses a letter after spinning a dollar amount. What happens if the letter is not a part of the word puzzle?

When the letter the contestant chooses is not a part of the "Wheel of Fortune" game word puzzle, the player then loses a turn. No cash is lost, but the play goes to the next contestant.
4. If the cost of a vowel is \$250 per vowel, then the cost of five E's is \$1250.

In the game, "Wheel of Fortune", the cost of a vowel is \$250. This cost is only assessed once per vowel choice. Not for the number of each particular vowel. Therefore only \$250 would be deducted from the contestant's account, instead of assessing this amount for each vowel found.
5. A contestant lands on the dollar amount of \$300 and the letter 'R' is chosen. What does the player earn if there are three R's in the word puzzle?

In this case, the contestant wins \$900 for choosing the R and for having it appear three times in the "Wheel of Fortune" game puzzle (3 x \$300 = \$900).
6. What number of "toss up" games are used on the "Wheel of Fortune" television program?

Three "toss up rounds" are used in the current television version of the game. The "toss up" game determines who starts the play for the puzzle solving rounds.
7. What number of letters are "given" in the puzzle on the "Bonus" round before the player attempts to guess letters for a solution?

Answer: Five consonants and a vowel

The letters R S T L N and E are the given letters in the "Wheel of Fortune" bonus round on television. Therefore, five consonants and one vowel are given before the contestant guesses letters for the "Bonus" round. The contestant is allowed to state three consonants and one vowel in addition to the letters given before the puzzle solving time limit is used.
8. What does the contestant of "Wheel of Fortune" need to have in order to win and go to the "Bonus" round?

The game contestant with the highest dollar value of cash and prize earnings from playing the puzzles and toss up games is declared the winner. The winner goes to the "Bonus round" to hopefully win a grand prize.
9. What time limit (in seconds) is used in solving the "Bonus round" word puzzles?

In the "Bonus" round a time limit of ten seconds is used for solving the puzzle.
This time limit is used after given and chosen letters are placed on the word grid.
10. Does landing on the "Bankrupt" space on the wheel during a game of "Wheel of Fortune" change the amount of the other rounds dollar cash and prize earnings?
