$10,000 is nothing to sneeze at, but it still felt like a bit of a letdown in Million Dollar Plinko.

I have mixed feelings about Back To í72. I wanted to like it more, but I wish it was more vintage. I think original prize music should be used, the ďthinkĒ music should sound like it was composed and recorded in the early Ď70s, and original images/video of the prizes should be shown. Also, Georgeís readings of the prize copy felt phony and artificial, especially for the first one.

You could definitely tell today was supposed to be the premier with the showcase script, Drew mentioning the gold wheel, and the back to 72 game premier.

They must have a magnet that forces contestants to drop the chip all the way on the sides when they play Million Dollar Plinko. She looked like she wanted nothing to do with winning 200K the way she dropped those chips. At least she looked as happy as could be with 10k

I wonder if the turn table moves automatically or if there is someone in there doing it. If there is not that must have been a very expensive one season game.

I like the Back To '72 game so far! It seems like it'll be a fun game! I just wish it wasn't temporary, and exclusive to this season! Hopefully there will be enough popular demand to keep that game for a while longer! You know! Wheel Of Fortune's cash format was only supposed to be for about a month in 1987, and they've kept it to this day! Plus, Month Hall was only planning to host Let's Make A Deal for only a month on the 1990 version, and he stuck around until that version was cancelled in early 1991!

Also, yes, I'd love to see somebody win a million dollars this week in one of the remaining games!

What I'd personally love to see them do, is each successive season they play it, have it change years. Aka Season 51 could be Back to 73, 52 Back to 74, and so on. And course, each season would use prizes specific to the year tied to the game. I think it'd be a great idea and a way to maintain a nod to the show's past as time goes on from here.

As an aside re: the prize descriptions....I was kinda hoping they'd used Johnny Olson's voiceovers for those, that woulda been a definite blast from the past and added to the feel of the game that much more. I think George tried to sound like him, especially for the 1st prize, but it's not the same as the genuine article.

Well, George did the best he could under the circumstances, and thankfully the brand name wasn't omitted in the copy like they do nowadays! It's a shame they can't bring back Johnny Olson from the dead or reverse Barker's age!

That's exactly what I was thinking! No need to throw out a perfectly good game at the end of the season!

I think they should have used the blue cards with the brand name for the small prizes. Music cues from that year should be used during the game play. I am hoping they will use some of the vintage music cues this season. I like the backdrop used for the game, it looks like part of the old turntable with the color pattern from that year is used. I hope they use that backdrop when showing item up for bids behind the giant price tag. Maybe have the same backdrop with the purple, red, orange color pattern used this season.

To be honest, I think it looks more like the backdrop behind where the showcase podiums (and also the Keep/Give game) were located! That one had lights around the border until the end of 1982! The turntable did not!

In thinking about it, maybe they're being cheeky when they say Back To 72 will be retired at the end of the season. Because next year it will be called Back To 73.

Either way, I enjoyed the gameplay.

L7: This was meant to be won. The contestant made choices I'd approve of 90% of the time in this game, but on a season opening week episode, you should be assuming the numbers will be in the middle and not 3s or 8s.

Plinko: Please drop the chip from the center slot. Just once. And preferably every time.

Back to '72: Our first new game in 1,457 days! It's a good concept that has a lot of really cool throwback elements such as the background looking like the old turntable, the shag carpeting, and the TV with a dial that changes "channels" as the amount you can be off by goes down. I do wish they had come up with a different pricing scheme for the game as this one feels like it's going to be too easy. Today's contestant messed up on the last product--given that she had $36 to play with, she should have guessed no less than $86. As mentioned above, I also hope they bring back classic prize cues for this game.

Exactly. When I saw the range, the first thing that came to my mind was, "Don't price it less than $85" (I wasn't sure if, it got down to exactly zero, she would still win or not). I saw somebody lose Lucky Seven for an expensive car by doing something similar; I think they had 3 dollars left, and guessed 7, which had a winning range of 4-9, but 6 would have a range of 3-9 - and it was a 3.

Finally got a chance to watch Back to '72 in action. I gotta say, I'm not a fan of the generic music they're using. Sure it sounds seventies, but they have actual music from the 70s already in their library from when the show started. I don't know how they could use the voice overs from Johnny without it sounding really tacky. It would be cool to see screencaps of the items from when they originally appeared though, and probably well within the realm of possibility.
YES! You have them all right! You win $2,500! You will putt from the closest line!

Jhc2010 putts from the closest line and WINS!!!

Congratulations! Those 2 cars are yours! Now we go to the Showcase Showdown! You will spin first. Pick a number between 1 and 20.

I can clearly see why this episode was shelved for a day with yet another million dollar Plinko bust (not that $10,000 is a bad chunk of change to walk away with), but were they really planning to open the season with Lucky $even for a no-thrills, sub-$30K SUV?  I wonít take back what I said yesterday about premiere weeks, but that would have been kind a boring way to open up a season ó especially the 50th season.  Iím not a fan of PTR, but Iím kind of glad in hindsight we opened the season with that instead of...this. 🤣

For a second episode of premiere week?  Today was quality.  I do think George tried a little too hard to channel his inner Johnny in Back to Ď72.  Canít really blame him, though.  This is 50-year-old prize copy written in a totally different style than heís used to lol.  Iím sure this will improve throughout the season.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.
