ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Wheel of Fortune Wheelmobile is coming to River City Casino in St. Louis.

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 St. Louis area!

The Wheelmobile event will take place during two special days of contestant searches.

Saturday, June 29 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday, June 30 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at River City Casino, located at 777 River City Casino Blvd., St. Louis Mo., 63125.

All ages are welcome to attend the River City Casino Wheelmobile event. The event will take place in the new Event Center at River City Casino. Free parking for the event will be available in the new parking garage located on the South side of the entertainment complex. Applications will be distributed outside of the main ballroom leading to the Event Center. 

Applications will be distributed one hour before each show begins. Shows will begin at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4 p.m., 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 draw.

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, applications will be placed in a big golden drum that sits on the stage.

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

On stage, contestants will be interviewed and play a version of 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, people who are believed to be the best candidates will be chosen 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 St. Louis area within a few months after the last event date.

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

You must be at least 18 years of age to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.

You are not eligible to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune if you work for, 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, KSDK-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.
