Come on down! Are you ready to play The Price is Right, the legendary television game show that has been drawing in viewers since 1956? Sure, you're not really in a studio and hoping your name is called, but we’ve got the next best thing here at TwinSpires Casino with the awesome The Price is Right slot machine.

Now you can relive the exciting studio action from the comfort of your own home, spinning the reels to land cash prizes. The first thing you’ll notice is the "Come on down" catchphrase as you launch the game, with cheering crowds and a graphic set-up that does well to replicate the studio feel.

Spotlights run around the border to this five-reel, three-row game, and if two of the required three bonus symbols land, the crowd goes wild in anticipation, waiting to see if the third will drop.

How to Play The Price is Right Slots

In the TV version of the game, contestants were picked at random from the audience and asked to guess the price of merchandise to win cash prizes. But you don’t need to know the cost of a grill, or the price of a dining table in this slot from IGT.

Instead, you simply spin the reels and hope to land three or more of the same symbols from left to right to win money. Those symbols are a mix of traditional slot game symbols and some of the items that typically appear on the TV show.

The lowest of the low are the traditional card symbols of ten through to ace. They are nicely drawn like props on a studio set, with brash lighting set within them. A racing bicycle is next on the prize list, followed by a jet ski, and a luxury car. Finally, the wild symbol is a star that can substitute for all others, except the bonus symbols.

Before we talk about the bonus, there is a neat random game that can trigger at any time. The Punch a Bunch game can appear before a winning spin, revealing a board with 11 mystery discs. Behind each disc is a mystery multiplier that will apply to your winning spin, which follows straight after.

But in a neat twist, you can elect to keep your multiplier or reject it and choose another. If you accept one, you spin away. If you keep rejecting, the fourth disc you uncover is applied automatically. Have you got the nerve to hold out for more?

The Price is Right Slot Big Wheel Bonus

You get to win big money in The Price is Right slots when you activate the Big Wheel Bonus. You must land three of the bonus wheel symbols to activate it. If two land, then the crowd begins cheering in anticipation, urging the third to drop. It certainly puts you on the edge of your seat!

The bonus reels are a fun mechanic. When it spins, you win what’s in the highlighted segment. It might be a bet multiplier starting at 25 times your bet but climbing up to 1,000 times if you get super lucky.

But the pointer might also land on one of two bonus games. First up is Plinko, where you get three chips. Each chip has an in-built multiplier

  • Chip 1: 1x or 2x
  • Chip 2: 2x or 3x
  • Chip 3: 3x or 5x

Drop each chip at the top of the game and watch it tumble down through random pins before settling in one of the prize money segments. Whichever segment the chips lands on, you win that prize multiplied by the chip multiplier.

For example, if you have a 5x chip multiplier and it lands in the 1,000 segment, you win 5,000. The price really is right, in this case.

The second bonus game you might get awarded involves a character called Yodely Guy, who is busy climbing his Swiss mountain and winning you free spins and win multipliers along the way. How high up the mountain can you go? At the peak, you can climb to a 25 times multiplier with one last free spin.

Low RTP on The Price is Right Slots

With high cash prizes to be won on the bonus games, it’s not surprising to see The Price is Right slots having a relatively low return to player (RTP) of 94.78%. These big bonus wins mean you will get fewer random wins along the way. The trick is to try and ride out the low wins and hope for a biggie.
