Plinko's $20,000 win in the $25k era
« on: May 02, 2019, 01:02:42 AM »
I assume it only happened but once (could easily be wrong though so correct me if so), and am curious as to when if anyone knew. I'd like to know if the episode it took place on is available on YouTube anywhere, would really like to see the moment if it was. Does anybody got a date or a rough estimate as to when it aired?

EDIT: Nevermind, a quick FAQ search reveals the date to be November 29, 1990. This can be locked.

I believe it was $21K and the show or even a clip has never surfaced anywhere.

Yeah it was $21k, I remembered it after I posted this. And yeah I found that out sadly when hunting for it that it isn't around anywhere. Does anyone know if the $1,000 came on the last chip? That'd have been super dramatic then if that was the case.

The only thing I seem to recall about that $21,000 win was it was a gentleman who was named "Judge".

Judge was a contestant on November 5, 1998, after the show upped Plinko's prize to $50,000.  He set a record win of $22,100, which stood until early Season 30, when a contestant named Kelly won $23,000.
