People can play Plinko online at Kongregate.com, Newgrounds.com and Abroy.com. People can also download it at Microsoft.com and FreewareFiles.com. The game is inspired by the popular TV show "The Price is Right."
In the original Plinko, the player receives a free chip and the chance to win four more chips by accurately pricing merchandise. The contestant places and drops each chip on a pegboard. The chip eventually falls into one of nine possible slots that are assigned different values. The player wins the corresponding amount of money. The player retakes his turn if the chip becomes stuck on the board.
