The round on The Price Is Right where a big wheel is spun and three players have already played their pricing games. The object is to come as close as you can to $1.00--WITHOUT GOING OVER. Getting the $1.00 (the 100) directly or in a combination of two spins (the two have to equal 100 or $1.00) awards $1,000 ($5,000 if a Million Dollar Spectacular). Landing on the green sections (5 and 15) during the bonus spin earns you $10,000 (previously $5,000) and landing on the 100 again on the bonus spin earns you $25,000 (previously $10,000). Players (and most often the host) can also be booed when they do not get the wheel around at least once.
"And now, here's Drew Carey (or Bob Barker) with the Showcase Showdown!" announcer Rich Fields said after announcing the consolation prizes or products for promotional consideration if the show is in a rerun.
