Winning Spin ID

October 6, 2016: I apologize that the site was not updated for the last couple of weeks. To keep it short, I had to go to the Emergency Room and was given five pints of blood. I spent two days in the Intensive Care Unit. etc. I’m back and hope to recover fully.
Apparently in place of the (former) $5K Every Day daily Spin ID contest is the MY$TERY WEDGE $10K GIVEAWAY. A winning Spin ID appears when ALL these things happen:
  • A player spins the Wheel and lands on the “Mystery Wedge”
  • The player risks turning over the Mystery Wedge (50/50 chance, either $10,000 or Bankrupt and Lose Turn)
  • The Mystery Wedge reads $10,000
  • The player then wins wins the $10,000 during that round (i.e. that player adds the $10,000 to his score)
Note that the official web page does not clarify what would happen in the situation that a player successfully acquires the $10,000 wedge, then loses the wedge (on a bankrupt), but still wins the round. The instructions on the official web page are written in a way that indicates there would still be a winning Spin ID in this situation. Probably there will not be any winning Spin ID in such a situation.
Important! Apparently The $5K Every Day daily Spin ID contest is dead. If you want, you can send an e-mail message to Wheel of Fortune demanding the immediate return of the $5K Every Day Spin ID contest.
