Wheel of Fortune South Africa spins onto S3


THE legendary Wheel of Fortune will spin onto our screens on Monday, 8 April, with an exhilarating local version allowing sharp risk-takers to win loads of moolah and the most magnificent prizes. Wheel of Fortune South Africa will be broadcast on S3 (formerly known as SABC3) Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm.

“We are extremely excited and honoured to finally add the African continent to Wheel of Fortune’s phenomenal legacy,” said Primedia Studios President Jan du Plessis. “Wheel of Fortune is arguably the most successful game-show format of all time in terms of its universal appeal and longevity. But best of all, South Africans will now have the opportunity to spin their lives around by playing this spectacular yet simple game on a state-of-the-art set. Add mind-blowing amounts of cash and unimaginable prizes – even cars – up for grabs, and Wheel of Fortune South Africa is in a league unseen on local television before.”

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 fabulous giveaways, which the contestant will pocket if they figure out the word phrase.
