WMS—The Price is Right®
An exciting new paradigm in slot entertainment comes from WMS. You’ve never seen The Price is Right® like this. We’ve added this player-favorite brand to our product library and placed it in the successful Community Gaming® product category, combining Community Gaming, Transmissive Reels® Gaming and Sensory Immersion Gaming technology for the first time. Launching with two base games, Plinko® and Punch a Bunch®, this blend of three of our foundational technologies features many elements from the classic television show in an all-new format. From the base theme-specific bonuses to shared Come On Down features, there’s something for every slot player on your floor. And the fun doesn’t stop there, because the randomly triggered Showcase Showdown has one player spinning The Price is Right wheel for a progressive award that all eligible players on the bank can win! With all this, the award-winning Bluebird®2 cabinet and an etched glass top-box with Emotive Lighting, this game is the complete package to showcase this classic brand, encouraging players to Come On Down for a chance at the Showcase Showdown.
