One of the Country's Most Exciting Games of Skill... and The Company That Makes Them!
Everyone has played, seen or at least heard of Plinko Games. These fun-filled games can be found at Theme Parks, Family Entertainment Centers, Zoos, Aquariums, Fun Raisers and even Haunted Houses all over the country. To find one, simply watch for lines of guests waiting to try their luck (or skill) at one of the many customized Plinko games at these venues.
What Are Plinko Games?
Plinko games are typically large boards that stand slightly angled. These boards have strategically placed spikes or pegs mounted into the board itself. The goal is for players of Plinko to drop a disk which will slide down the board, bouncing from peg to peg, as it makes its way to the bottom of the board where there will be multiple slots. Players attempt to "hit their target" by careful, (or not) attempting to strategically figure out what path the disk must take to make it finally rest in the slot they have are shooting for. Of course those slots are usually the "money slots" or the slots with the biggest prizes.
As you will find if you have not played this fun, yet challenging game, it can become addicting.
The History of Plinko Games
The The Price is Right is getting the credit for "inventing the Plinko game. However, it's easy to imagine that Plinko was, at the very least, inspired by Japan's Pachinko machines, a very popular mechanical game where ball bearings are catapulted to the top of a vertical board covered with glass. The silver bearings bounce around the pegs attached to the back of the board, as they make their way to their targets, (in which case the player wins), or a gutter (in which case the player loses the ball).
The The Price is Right Plinko featured a cup saucer sized chips “plinking” down the board towards cash prizes. The board is very large and contestants can win a substantial amount of money... if they win. If the Plinko game is to be credited to The Price is Right then credit must also go to Frank Wayne, an executive producer of the show. Wayne was the individual who came up with the idea (at least for the popular television game show back in January of 1983. According to Bob Barker, host of the show at that time, the game’s name came from the “plink” sound of the chips hitting the metal spikes as it traveled down the board.
Regardless of how Plinko Games were created or who created them, one thing is for certain, watching or playing a Plinko game as the disk bounces from peg to peg, making its way to its final destination, is fun and exciting!
