CONTESTANTS WIN TRIPS AND CASH PRIZES IN WHEEL OF FORTUNE SECOND-CHANCE PROMOTION
September 2, 2016

In front of a large crowd at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island, nine players gathered on August 28 to find out who would be travelling to Los Angeles on a Wheel of Fortune VIP Trip.

After a series of elimination rounds, two finalists remained in the Grand Prize drawing. Bobbi Bianco of Lincoln, who was acting as a proxy for her husband Mark Bianco, and Terry Selvage of Lincoln took turns selecting one of 12 party poppers. Only one of the poppers had not been disabled. After nine unsuccessful attempts, Bianco took another turn at selecting a popper. With a bang and a flurry of confetti, the popper burst, confirming that Bianco was the Grand Prize winner.

Between April and August, Nebraska Lottery players entered over 17,000 non-winning $10 Wheel of Fortune Scratch tickets in the Wheel of Fortune Second-Chance Promotion. Three preliminary drawings were held in June, July, and August to select the nine semifinalists who competed in the Grand Prize drawing.

Mark Bianco of Lincoln, the Grand Prize winner, will receive a VIP Trip to Los Angeles with a chance to play on the lottery-players only, non-broadcast Wheel of Fortune show with Pat Sajak and Vanna White and $12,000 cash. The remaining semifinalists won the following cash prizes:

  • Terry Selvage of Lincoln – Wheel of Fortune VIP Trip to Los Angeles with a chance to play on the lottery-players only, non-broadcast Wheel of Fortune show and $8,000 cash.
  • William McMullen of Kearney - Wheel of Fortune VIP Trip to Los Angeles with a chance to play on the lottery-players only, non-broadcast Wheel of Fortune show and $7,000 cash.
  • Amber Poland of Oakland - $6,000
  • Staci Wyman of North Platte - $5,000
  • Timothy Bowers of Omaha - $4,000
  • Bruce Fischer of Omaha - $3,000
  • Michael Baker of Grand Island - $2,000
  • Steven Ruby of Council Bluffs, IA - $1,000
