‘The Price Is Right’ Visualized in Tableau: Top Money Winners and What Game You Want to Play

One of my favorite game shows to watch is “The Price Is Right.” I’ve always been a huge fan of the games, and I love watching the hilarity of contestants as they run down the aisle after hearing their name called by the announcer. I’m amazed at how many prizes someone can walk away with from playing a game show. (If you can afford the taxes on them, right?)

I’ve always wanted to go on the show myself and play Plinko – the game where you drop chips down a pegged board for cash. Well, I stumbled on a dataset recently which contains the winning statistics for every game played from season 29 to season 41 of “The Price Is Right.” I came to realize that if I want to win big on the show, Plinko is not the game I want to play at all. It only has a winning percentage of 45%. I was devastated, to say the least, but I still want to play it …

Being the fan that I am though, I’ve built the following Tableau dashboards for fun. The Top Money Winners Dashboard allows you to see the Top 10 Winners and the video clip of them winning. It also shows what items they bid on initially to get to play, what they won in the pricing game, and what they won at the wheel and Showcase Showdowns. The What Game to Play Dashboard allows you to input how likely you are to win and see those games. It’s also fun to search for your favorite game or one of the Top 10 Money Winner games to see how likely the game will be won. 

Hope you enjoy.
