Wheel of Fortune

Channel: S3
TX Time: 19h30
Genre: Game Show

Wheel of Fortune

If you love the classic word game Hangman or are a word-puzzle guru or crossword fan, Wheel of Fortune - the South African version - will be your A-Z to win big.

The show is a whirlwind of word riddles, but with a giant wheel determining your fortune -  in other words, how much money or which prizes you'll take home.

Each episode features three contestants, starting with a 'Toss-up' round in which this trio tries to unravel a word phrase by themselves to earn money and determine which one will spin the iconic wheel first.

There are different wedges on the wheel – anything between R100 and R800, as well as some dreaded ones like 'Lose a Turn' or 'Bankrupt', which might ruin their game.

In addition to the cash amounts, the wheel includes giveaways, which the contestant will pocket if they figure out the word phrase.

In solving the puzzle, the amount of money indicated on the wheel multiplies with the number of letters they choose to put on the game's giant puzzle board, but only if the letters are indeed part of the phrase.

If they don't use a consonant, they can also buy a vowel, but once they opt to put a wrong letter on the board, it's the next contestant's turn to spin the wheel.

Ultimately, the contestant who calls out the correct phrase bags the money they have accumulated in their own wallet.

Thereafter, the contestant with the biggest winnings moves on to play the bonus round, where more prizes await.

The series is hosted by Rorisang Thandekiso.

But what happens when the Friday night lights shut off and the town's beloved team finds themselves embroiled in the centre of a tragic crime?
