Wheel of Fortune Spin Slot Machine

Pat... can I buy a P? Mine seems to be burned out.

When I was a kid, I thought that the only way you could get appliances and furniture for your home was to win them on game shows. (No joke.) I held this belief until I was about 8, when - after years of quizzing Mom and Dad what show they won the couch on - they took me to an Ethan Allen gallery store. I was crushed, but my love affair with game shows continued up until this very day.

So, you wanna be on a game show? Gonna be in Vegas this weekend? Ever heard of Wheel of Fortune???

This Saturday and Sunday, The Wheelmobile - a contestant hunting lodge on wheels - will be at The Venetian's showroom, looking for contestants to be on SIX WEEKS of SHOWS that will be taped at the MEGACENTER in July 2010.

Here's the The Details

Am I the only one that misses the days of contestants having to buy things with their winnings? Nothing says entertainment like watching them buy the giant Toblerone bar or ceramic dog with their last few dollars or a gift certificate from Service Merchandise.

To quote Homer: "Game shows aren't about cruelty,they're about greed and wonderful prizes like poorly-built catamarans"

OMG....Service Merchandise. I loved that store when I was a little kid. Taking the tickets back to the supply area and watching everything you bought come out on that conveyor belt. That was so cool to me.
I like watching the old Price is Right on GameShow Network when Bob Barker still had brown hair

They have been doing this for a few years now and with Let's Make a Deal at the Trop, I'm a little suprised more gameshows don't make Vegas home. There is a ready tourist audience and plenty of showrooms to use during the day. I think places like the Sahara, Riviera, and Plaza would benefit from the steady draw.
