Wheel of Fortune Message from God

Dear Five Doves,

It has been years since I have posted as MathMan, but this seemed like too much fun not to post 🙂!!  I have enjoyed continuing to read this site from a distance - Good Job, John!!

Wheel of Fortune Message from God

On Wheel of Fortune, they have never given two \$100,000 prizes in a row in the show's almost 40-year history. On February 7th, 8th & 9th, the \$100,000 prize was given out 3 times in a row.

Probability of 3 \$100,000 prizes being paid out in a row:

The \$100,000 is the bonus wedge 1/24 times

Winning the bonus happens just less than 50% of the time (based on observation)

This means that winning the \$100,000 should happen 1 in every 50 shows.

Having this happen three times in a row changes this to (1 in 50) x (1 in 50) x (1 in 50), or 1 in 125,000!!

Wheel of Fortune tapes 195 episodes per season.

Having three winners in a row is therefore estimated to occur 1 in every 641 seasons / years (125,000 / 195 episodes per season or 3 times since Jesus was on the Earth 2000 years ago)

Was there a message in the three winning puzzles? You be the judge... The Following are the WINNING PHRASES for each of these three days of \$100,000 bonuses...
