Wheel of Fortune has entertained audiences for decades. While the show has undergone a few changes over the years, the rules of Wheel of Fortune remain essentially the same. Contestants join, dreaming of hitting it big and hoping their luck will hold until the end. They come in and spin the titular wheel, select letters that may be a part of a word, phrase, name, or something else that is easily recognizable in hindsight. Every correct guess wins them a bigger share of the pot. Once they make it to the final puzzle, they can win numerous prizes, including catering, electronics, vacations, a car, and more. Out of that lineup, customers want the brand-new car the most. If you’ve been watching Wheel of Fortune and wishing you could win that spanking new ride, here’s what you need to know.
It’s Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be
Who wouldn’t want a brand-new car, especially if it’s free? That’s the catch. It’s not entirely free. You’ll need to jump through a lot of hoops if you do decide to drive home in your newly won ride. If you are lucky enough to win the car or any other item on the show, you’ll need to pay the taxes on them. Consider how much the car is valued. You’ll need to pay the price for your prize. If you have a job that could cover the added expenses brought on by the taxes, that’s great. If you’re a student who only recently graduated, you may find yourself in a pickle over that. Still, once you get those things sorted out, the car company will let you know your new ride is ready for pickup. Drop by, sign all the necessary paperwork, and off you go into the sunset with your new car.
It’s Not Completely Free
The main lesson is that the car—or any prize you win on the show—isn’t completely free of charge. You need to pay for taxes and a few additional charges. There’s an invisible price tag. But that’s not entirely a bad thing. Consider how much you only had to shell out money for to take home the car. You would have spent a whole lot more if you bought it in the first place. So, even if you did have to shell out money for the taxes, that’s already an excellent deal. Keep that in mind the next time you’re tempted to join a show like Wheel of Fortune. If you love the show, why not recreate it for your next event or party? You only need a dry-erase prize wheel, prizes, and you should be good to go.
What’s a Dry Erase Prize Wheel?
It’s a prize but with empty slots. You can write on the slots and erase them for a new round of games. That feature means you can reuse the prize wheel over and over. If you love giving away raffle prizes, this is the perfect addition to your corporate events and parties. Give it a try.
