Followed by: Amber Bohac
Double Prices: Heather ($2,145) double whammied

Next: Maximiliano Bolanos

GT: $32K
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash: $12,800

Scary moments

-Way too many duds in R2, including a CRITICAL ONE of K from Meg to let $12,350 (she probably thought the first word was HIKING).

-We got a $0 prize puzzle win as a result of Hateena’s PAINFUL BANKRUPT near $650 to throw away $11,200 — yikes.

Categories sponsored by “Slotomania”: EVENT/THING/PHRASE

She could make a getaway in that Chevy Equinox.

$100K Bonus Round: Meg does not get the $40K prize winning in BINGO NIGHT — I could understand being tripped up on that first word w/ all but the first and last spaces of that word being filled out, but those guesses of yours were just ridiculous, ma’am. -___-
