Name: Triple Play
Debut: October 2, 2000

Debuting on the season premiere of the 29th season of The Price is Right, Triple Play is played for 3 cars. Three cars are revealed in order of expense. The first car is detailed, then 2 price tags are shown and the contestant is to choose which price is closest to the actual retail price of the car without going over. If correct, then the contestant moves onto the second car. There are 3 price tags to choose from for the 2nd car. Again, the contestant must pick the price closes to the actual retain price of the second vehicle without going over. If he/she is correct again, then the contestant moves onto the third car. For this car, there are now 4 price tags; same rules apply– the one closest to the ARP without going over must be selected. If the contestant chooses correctly yet again, then he/she wins all 3 cars. If at any point during the game the contestant chooses incorrectly, then the game is over and they win no cars. The contestant is not permitted to stop at any time, so the game is an all-or-nothing proposition.

Odds Of Winning: If you randomly select from the price tags displayed, you have a 1 in 24 chance of winning all three cars.
