> Description 
Two contestants, one a returning champion, played. The challenger began the game by pulling a lever, which set three slot machine-style wheels in motion. The wheels contained various categories and Jokers. When the wheels stopped, the player chose one of the displayed categories and had to answer a question from that category. The value of each question was determined by how many times that category appeared on the wheels. Single categories were worth $50, two of a kind $100, and finally $200 for a triple. Jokers, when they appeared, could be used to match any category, or could be used to go "off the board" and become a category not shown. The first player to reach $500 or more won the game. If the player was fortunate enough to spin three Jokers, answering one question from any of that game's categories was an automatic win. However, the returning champion had an advantage - even if his or her challenger had reached $500 first, he or she could still take one final spin to see if it was possible to catch up (or to spin three Jokers). Any contestant who won five consecutive games received a new car as a bonus.
