America’s favorite word puzzle game show has always had amazing prizes to offer its contestants. With every spin of the wheel, Wheel of Fortune contestants stand to win vacations, half of a car, or just good ol’ fashioned “big money, big money!” Of course, there’s also the chance they could land on the dreaded “Bankrupt” space...but we won’t talk about that.
But between Oct. 28 and Nov. 1, Wheel of Fortune is giving away something truly amazing: a house! And you don’t even have to be an on-air contestant to win it! Here’s everything you need to know about the Wheel of Fortune home giveaway for 2019.
What is the Wheel of Fortune Home Sweet Home Giveaway?
Basically, it’s exactly what it sounds like — Wheel of Fortune gives away a brand-new home! By entering the sweepstakes, you have the chance to become the grand prize winner, meaning you’ll win a new home! But where is the house that Wheel of Fortune is giving away? The grand prize winner will get a home located in the Latitude Margaritaville communities in either Hilton Head, S.C. or Daytona Beach, Fla. (the winner gets to choose!).
Last year, Michael C. from Ohio won a home in the Latitude Margaritaville community located in Daytona Beach. There’s a totally charming video of him being welcomed into his new home by Pat Sajak, Vanna White, and none other than Jimmy Buffet!
The new home isn’t the only prize, either. Entering the sweepstakes also gives you the chance to win a $500 gift card to the Margaritaville Store.
Here’s how to enter the Wheel of Fortune home giveaway for 2019:
Entering the Wheel of Fortune Home Sweet Home Giveaway couldn’t be much easier. The first thing you have to do is watch Wheel of Fortune between Oct. 28 and Nov. 1 and write down the Bonus Puzzle Solution.
Then, go to the Wheel of Fortune home giveaway website and fill out the form there (including the Bonus Puzzle Solution). If you’re a member of the Wheel Watchers Club, you can log in for an extra entry each night of the giveaway. (If you’re not a member yet, you can register during the giveaway and still qualify for extra entries.) You can fill out entry forms each night of the giveaway after 3 p.m. ET.
What is Latitude Margaritaville?
Latitude Margaritaville is a portfolio of adult communities for people who are “55 or better.” Each Latitude Margaritaville location offers resort-style amenities to people who are “growing older, but not up.” There’s a huge focus on activities, including game and hobby rooms, arts and learning programs, live entertainment, and, naturally, food and beverages from Margaritaville. Sounds like paradise, no?
What if you’re not “55 or better”?
You can still win the sweepstakes! Rather than winning a home in a Latitude Margaritaville location, winners who are not “55 or better” can win a home in the Westlake community in Westlake, Fla., or they can choose to take the cash prize of $150,000 instead. So why not give it a try? (Or, as they say on the show, give it a spin!)
