Player Wins Big In Recent Scenes

A recent The Price Is Right contestant took home the big bucks while playing the money wheel. The big wheel is as iconic as the game show itself, as participants give said wheel a big spin to try and win big money. Based on recent scenes, one player went home considerably richer than when she arrived.

A contestant named Zamone had multiple lucky spins while spinning the big wheel. This resulted in her taking home a cool $10k. As much of a worthy celebration as this was for her, considering the odds she needed, and where she needed to land on the wheel across multiple spins, many The Price Is Right fans think that there’s something fishy going on here.

Is The Price Is Right Game ‘Rigged’?

After Zamone’s big The Price Is Right win, this left viewers with plenty of questions, with some even suspecting that the iconic wheel is purposely set up for some players to take home the big money. Zamone nailed three spins in a row to get her into the money. The sheer odds of that happening are not likely, to say the least. So, the fact that she smoothly sailed all the way to the bank with $10k in her pocket has many questioning the wheel’s legitimacy.

With her first two spins, she landed on the 50, netting her $1k. From there, she needed to land on the 15 to win $10k or the 5 to win $25k. With her third and final spin also being one to land her in the money, many watchers have doubts.

  1. I was a contestant on the TPIR taped in November 1993. I was fortunate enough to get up on stage and played PLINKO. I had four chips. At the time the highest amount in the center slot was $5,000.00. Three of my four chips went into the $5,000.00 with the last chip going into the $100.00 for a total of $15,100.00. I also won the Showcase winning a car, a jukebox, a cellphone. My total winnings for the day was $42,840.00. In todays dollars that equates to over $93,000.00.
