The Wheel is the most important part of the game show. It is a large wheel that contestants spin to determine how much money they can win. The wheel has different sections, each with a different dollar amount or a special prize. The contestants spin the wheel and then guess a letter. If the letter appears in the puzzle, they win the amount of money they spun multiplied by the number of times the letter appears in the puzzle. The wheel can also land on Bankrupt or Lose a Turn, which means the contestants lose their turn or all their money.
