Wheel of Fortune 2005
Wheel of Fortune is a game show that revolves around the drawing of numbers. It has become the most popular game show on television. The show has been around for over thirty years and has a huge fan base. It is the #1 show on syndication. In fact, it is watched by 19 million people daily in the U.S.
Sony Pictures Mobile made a mobile game of the Wheel of Fortune last year, but it did not have the same kind of competition or prizes. Now, InfoSpace’s Atlas studio has released Wheel of Fortune for Prizes, a version of the game that incorporates a “for Prizes” package and gift certificates.
To get into the competition, the contestants had to take a timed fill-in-the-blank test. The ones who did poorly were eliminated. The rest had to play a mock Wheel of Fortune. Those who did well were selected to the next stage. The contestants were whittled down to twenty-five people. The top 25 people would then move on to the San Francisco week.
The original Wheel of Fortune was taped in the NBC studios in Burbank. However, the show has gone through a lot of changes. It no longer uses the white tube device to spin the wheel. Now, the show uses touch screens instead of the white tube. The announcers are also different. Jim Thornton now acts as the announcer, replacing Charlie O’Donnell.
The Wheel of Fortune has partnered with Sony Electronics and Circuit City Stores to promote their new Sweepstakes. The winner will win $25,000 worth of products from Sony. The promotion will run for four weeks and will reach millions of consumers. The promotion will run in Circuit City stores all across the country and will be promoted online.
The show’s popularity has increased its viewership by leaps and bounds. It is no wonder that over seven thousand episodes of America’s Game have been aired. The show also features an enormous yellow recreation vehicle that has hosted search events. It gives fans an up-close view of what it is like to be a contestant on the show. In fact, over one million fans have applied to become a contestant.
