If you ever wanted to be on a television game show, now is your chance.

Chinook Winds Casino Resort is hosting auditions for the Wheel of Fortune from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday Oct. 11 and Sunday, Oct. 12.

The Wheelmobile, a 36-foot Winnebago that tours nationwide in search of contestants for the Wheel of Fortune show, is stationed at the casino this weekend. There are three Wheel of Fortune shows during each day of a Wheelmobile event in Lincoln City. The one hour shows begin at 1 p.m, 2:30 p.m., and 4 p.m.

Everyone who comes to a Wheelmobile event will receive a color-coded application. The color of the application tells potential contestants what time their show begins. Fill out the application and drop it in the big golden drum that sits on stage. When the show begins, the host will randomly select an application from the drum to come on stage.

Each person who comes on stage will be interviewed and evaluated as a potential contestant on the show. They will also play a version of Wheel of Fortune’s Speed-Up Round. The host will be looking for good game players who are energetic, enthusiastic, and fun.

The Wheel of Fortune airs on Portland’s KATU Television at 7 p.m. weeknights.
