I enjoyed this plussed-up Plinko and congrats Ryan!  I would have made the slots:  135-535-3500-0-35,000-0-3500-535-135.  This way nothing would have been lower than usual and you wouldn't repeat a value on one side of the board.

Wow- 35 years!  I remember being home from school watching the debut.   My initial thought was that the game was easy and that the 5,000 (center slot) would be hit very frequently  :oldlol:

I hope the show decides to do the same thing they did this time for Plinko's 40th anniversary
Perhaps they could even replace the $0 slots with $40 slots, that way the contestant could be guaranteed to get at least a little bit of money and eliminate the chance of a Stinko (wipeout)

If you have to explain the replacement word you're using by immediately following it with the word it replaced, it wasn't a very good replacement.

Thank you so much JT!  Agreed, it was a little strange to have a pair of $3,500 slots on each side of the board.  They were probably want to get the most mileage out of the "35" theme, and having an extra $3,500 slot sure beats having only $35!

The $0 slots add a little bit of danger with trying to get the big jackpot.  However, it is always disappointing to see a player win all of the chips, and end up with only a few hundred dollars, or worse, nothing due to the $0.  But they also add to the intensity of the game that the audience loves
