Wheel of Fortune used to give consolation prizes many years ago. Today, if a contestant does not win any money or prizes, he or she receives a \$1,000 consolation prize. Any contestant whose cash winnings totals less than \$1,000 will receive \$1,000 as well. All prizes already have a value of at least \$1,000.
