MONTREAL, CANADA, April 2, 2012 – Interactive entertainment company Ludia and FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) announced today the launch of The Price Is Right Slots game for the Facebook platform.

Players start off a game in the lobby, which introduces the unique slot machines based on the famous and popular pricing games such as Cliff Hangers, Plinko, 3 Strikes, and more. The first unlocked machine is the Cliff Hangers’, which features familiar elements from the game such as goats, flowers, mountains, and the classic yodeling mountain climber. Players then proceed to spin, spin, spin and collect chips as the game goes on, hoping to eventually spin the Big Wheel to multiply rewards or win the Jackpot! Players can also win special tokens that lead them to Contestant’s Row or pricing games designed after the slot machine’s theme for bonus rewards.
