Wheel of Fortune - 13 WTHR Indianapolis


Wheel of Fortune is Coming to the Indianapolis Area
and YOU Could Be a Contestant!


What is the Wheelmobile?
The Wheelmobile is a 39-foot Winnebago that tours nationwide in search of contestants for television’s #1 game show. The Wheelmobile team is coming your way to find contestants in the Indianapolis area!
Where and when will the Wheelmobile event take place?
The Wheelmobile event will take place during two special days of contestant searches.
Sat. & Sun., April 24 & 25
from 10 AM - 2 PM
Indiana Live! Casino*
4300 N. Michigan Road Shelbyville, IN 46176

* Due to gaming regulations, you must be 21 years of age or older to attend the Indiana Live! Casino Wheelmobile event. Pat and Vanna will not be in attendance.




Contestants must park in the remote parking lot located at the temporary lot on the East side of the property. (Please follow the signs.) Shuttle service will be provided from the remote parking area to the registration tent. Applications will be distributed in the registration tent located adjacent to Indiana Downs. Contestants must bring a VALID state-issued driver’s license, identification card, passport or military I.D to register. The Wheelmobile event will take place on the second floor of the Indiana Downs Grandstand.

We will begin handing out applications one hour before each show begins. Shows will begin at 10:00 AM, 11:30 AM, and 1:00 PM, with each show lasting about an hour. There is no need to arrive hours in advance of the event. Everyone who attends the event will be able to submit an application. We will select participants to come to the stage and audition via a random drawing.


What are the contestant eligibility requirements?
You must be at least 18 years of age to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune. Due to gaming regulations, you must be 21 years of age to attend the Indiana Live! Casino Wheelmobile event.

You are not eligible to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune if you work for Indiana Live! Casino or Indiana Downs, or are related to, anyone who works for Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., Sony Pictures Television Inc., Sony Pictures Television International, Quadra Productions, Inc., CBS Television Distribution Group, game show prize suppliers, WTHR-TV (including its advertisers and affiliated radio stations), or any TV stations or networks broadcasting Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy!.

You are not eligible to appear on Wheel of Fortune if you have appeared on another game show, dating-relationship show or reality show in the last year or three game shows, dating-relationship shows or reality shows in the last ten years.

You are not eligible if you have appeared on any version of Wheel of Fortune, including “Teen Week,” “Wheel 2000,” or the daytime version of the show.

All expenses incurred while interviewing and (if selected as a contestant) appearing on the show, including airfare, hotel, etc. are the responsibility of the applicant.

A contestant audition does not guarantee a spot on the show. The applicant understands that Wheel of Fortune is under no obligation to use him/her as a contestant. It is entirely at the producer's discretion.

REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS SHALL BE MADE FOR PERSONS WITH PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS AND/OR DISABILITIES.

How does it work?
There are three Wheel of Fortune shows during each day of a Wheelmobile event. Each show lasts approximately one hour. Everyone who comes to a Wheelmobile event will receive a color-coded application. The color of the application tells you what time the game you are eligible for will begin.

Fill out your application and drop it in a nearby receptacle. Just before show time, we will put all the applications in a big golden drum that sits on the stage.

When the show begins, our Wheelmobile host will pick applications at random from the drum and call participants up to the stage (in groups of five) to play the game.

On stage, we will do a brief interview with each contestant and play a version of the Wheel of Fortune Speed-Up Round.

Each person who comes up to the stage will be evaluated as a potential contestant for the show. At the end of the puzzle all contestants on stage will be awarded a prize. (Wheel of Fortune hats, t-shirts and duffle bags are just some of the stuff you might win.)


Wheel of Fortune is looking for good game players who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun. This is your opportunity to shine. Show us what you’ve got!

After the Wheelmobile event in your area has been conducted, we will choose the people we believe will be the best candidates for the show (based on their overall performance on stage) to take part in a final round of auditions. These final auditions will take place in the Indianapolis area within a few months after our last event date.

We will get as many people up to the stage as we can. However, we know there will be many more folks at our Wheelmobile events than we can possibly audition. For this reason, we will reserve some slots in the final auditions for those individuals who attended Wheelmobile events but did not make it up to the stage. After all Wheelmobile events have been conducted, we will draw a number of names at random from all the applications we receive in the Indianapolis area for these slots.

If you are invited to the final auditions, you will receive a letter or email within a few weeks of our last Wheelmobile event.
