New PLINKO® Scratch GameA grand prize of $500,000 and instant prizes of up to $100,000 to be won!

Montréal, May 16, 2023 — The new PLINKO® scratch game has hit the market, both online and at retail locations across Québec. Based on the game of the same name from the iconic TV show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the $5 game is played in three steps and features a host of instant prizes. Players who win in the first two steps will get the chance to take home a $500,000 grand prize when they play on a real life-size PLINKO® board.

Three ways to win 


1. Instant prizes of up to $100,000

The tickets can be purchased online or at a retail location and give players the chance to win instant prizes of up to $100,000 or to move on to the next step if they uncover the “DISQUE” prize.


2. Sure-fire win

Players who uncover the “DISQUE” prize are sure to win a prize in step two, which involves an animation on the customer display screen in stores or directly on lotoquebec.com if the ticket was purchased online. Players will get to watch an animated chip drop on a PLINKO® board on-screen. If the chip lands in the “PLINKO” slot, the player moves on to the third and final step. If not, they are sure to win anywhere between $10 and $10,000.


3. A grand prize of $500,000 up for grabs on a real life-size PLINKO® board

Winners of a PLINKO® prize in step two will get to drop a chip on a real life-size PLINKO® board at the Casino de Montréal! These lucky winners will watch their chip land in one of the slots and win anywhere between $100,000 and $500,000. Videos of the winners will be posted on lotoquebec.com.
