CULVER CITY, Calif., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- America's #1 Game Show, Wheel of Fortune, is uniting with Caesars Entertainment to create a millionaire as part of the " Wheel of Fortune Millionaire Maker Sweepstakes."  More than $2 million will be awarded over the course of Wheel of Fortune's biggest cash sweepstakes ever. 

" Wheel of Fortune has always been about big money for our contestants, but this exciting sweepstakes means REALLY big money for our viewers," said Harry Friedman, Executive Producer, Wheel of Fortune. "Teaming up with Caesars Entertainment and their Millionaire Maker promotion is bringing a new level of excitement to our 30th Anniversary celebration."

Twenty lucky people will win $50,000 cash and a luxurious Caesars Palace Las Vegas trip experience for two simply by collecting game pieces and watching Wheel of Fortune to see if the puzzle on their game piece matches the designated in-show puzzle.  Those 20 winners will be invited to a special Caesars Palace event where one winner will be selected at random to win the $1 million dollar grand prize and become an instant millionaire.

If you're looking for your chance at fortune, try your luck at a Caesars Entertainment resort.  Caesars Entertainment has created 706* millionaires and announced Millionaire Maker powered by Total Rewards, a celebration of these guests' winnings and a promotion aimed at making even more millionaires. * Ways to enter and rules of each promotion vary by property.

In NV, all annuities are and will be paid out at $50,000 a year for 20 years or a discounted lump sum, subject to Nevada regulation.

"We are adding another chance to join this illustrious millionaire club for our Total Rewards members and are expanding the opportunity to every person nationwide by working together with Wheel of Fortune, arguably the most recognized game show in America."
