(Newser) – Autumn Erhard's first stroke of luck was being 30 years old, which qualified her to appear on Wheel of Fortune's 30th anniversary show yesterday. Mix in some pretty tough odds about landing on a million-dollar prize slot, making it to the bonus round, landing on that prize slot again, and then solving a 12-letter puzzle with only four letters flipped, and it all adds up to the show's second million-dollar winner, report USA Today and Entertainment Weekly.

very cool ... I don't share the opinion that it was fixed - especially since this is only the 2nd time it's been won. If they needed it for ratings they would have it won a little more often. Besides, as long as there are old ladies on earth, there will be wheel of fortune :)

They needed publicity, since ratings were sagging, so the woman got extremely "lucky." Shades of "Twenty One."

It looks staged. But congrats either way.
