I believe he meant $200,000 total won across all Plinko games throughout the season.

I did mean $200K total over the season, but only when the dollar amounts are unchanged from the normal amounts. That was my bad.

That got back on topic pretty quickly. Anyway:

Spelling Bee: A contestant pulls out C, CAR, A, CAR, R in that exact order.
Punch A Bunch: A contestant punches the $25,000 first followed by both $10,000 slips (not really caring if there is a fourth).
Any Number: A contestant is able to call 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8, or 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2.

That was the plan!  Anyway...

I actually had every intention of putting the Spelling Bee perfection in my list.  It would've been in my second batch of predictions (along with Check Game Perfection).  However, my attempt was to go with things that were likely to happen before wishful thinking.  For example, I'd love to see a winner in Pass The Buck collecting $8,000 in addition to the car.  Maybe luck hits off of such a risk in Season 51, but I'd be quitting after two of the 3 top options (even if I didn't draw the car card).

I think Bee perfect is possible, and it would totally be awesome, in any order.  As for Punch, A $25,000 winner would be pretty cool even without the other $10,000 hits.  The game isn't won as much as before, and even hitting 10K is a rarity. 

Hole in One is a mix of what I think could happen & wishful thinking.  The point gamesurf made is very fair; it's so rare that the bonus is best left at $500.  I wouldn't mind an increase, and in the past, I sorta liked the idea of a Shell Game bonus, if not something spectacular.  But only for a minute.  $500 or whatever, I'd love to see someone put everything in order in the upcoming season.  If not, so be it, since the object of the game is to win.

Speaking of Hole In One, as well as the prediction of an upgrade to a pricing game prop, I'd put $5-$10 on one for Hole.  I'd lose that right away, as it's doubtful more than probable.  I can't picture what a new set would look like if TPIR actually "refurbished" the game.  However, they did such a phenomenal job with 3 Strikes, and I have no doubt that they'd ace an upgrade to Hole.  It's likely not that necessary, but it would be interesting
