Odds of Winning Pricing Games

Are you a gambling man... or woman?  Here's the breakdown of odds of winning pricing games on the price is right.  Odds/games in green are easiest to win, odds/games in yellow are harder to win, odds/games in orange are even harder to win and games in red are the hardest to win on TPiR!  This list only assumes perfection (such as $50,000 on Plinko), and that a contestant plays the game correctly (such as winning all the choices on Pass The Buck).  It also assumes random choices for games like It's In The Bag-- obviously the more shopper oriented you are (or are able to listen to the audience!) the better your chances to win! This list is as complete as possible but if you find any omissions or errors, feel free to contact us at tpirblog@balloflightning.com
