Plinko

Pinko can be rigged? That's what we are hearing from the folks at TMZ.com this week.

According to TMZ.com, the show's famous Plinko game was rigged for a commercial so that a dropped chip land in the $10-thousand slot. Apparently, after the taping of the commercial was over, no one apparently reset the game.

During a taping of the show, a woman playing the Plinko game dropped 3 chips in the $10-thousand slot before the producers realized what was going on. They immediately stopped taping and reset the game.

When the woman was allowed to play again, this time on the un-rigged game, she only won about $3-thousand. In the end, the show's producers gave her the $30-thousand on top of the $3-thousand she'd won legitimately. The show won't air, however.

Plinko is a pricing game on the American television game show The Price Is Right. Debuting on January 3, 1983, it is played for a cash prize of up to $50,000 and uses small prizes. It is frequently said to be the most popular of all the pricing games.
