COLUMBIA, South Carolina: The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) has awarded three of eight separate trips to audition on the “Wheel of Fortune®” game show. Robert Horton, of Dillon, is the most recent winner.

“I love Wheel of Fortune,” said Horton. “I do crossword puzzles all the time to help me play the game at home.’’
SCEL’s “Wheel of Fortune®” second-chance promotion will award eight contestants each round-trip airfare for two (2) to Hollywood, CA, for four (4) days and three (3) nights in a hotel, ground transportation, $1,000 in spending money, one audition for the “Wheel of Fortune®” show, VIP seating for two (2) at a “Wheel of Fortune®” taping, and two (2) “Wheel of Fortune®” prize packs. The trip is valued at $8,309. The winner also has the choice to redeem the cash value of the trip.
If Horton is selected to be a show contestant as a result of the audition, he will receive a second trip for two, airfare, with a three-day, two-night hotel stay to coincide with the “Wheel of Fortune®” taping.

“Vanna White is from my area,” Horton added. “I know members of her family. It would be an honor for me to meet her on the show!”
