Meaning the middle slot is more likely than the outside slots.
Just something to consider.
One of the many games that we will have is basically a Plinko game. Drop a chip and there are 8 possible spots for it to land. Two possible scenarios are:
1. Buy 3 Plinko chips for $5. You get the sum of the 3 landing spots. If I do this, what should the 8 spots be? Maybe 0 / 1 / 2 / 0 / 4 / 1 / 0 / 1 or something like that?
2. You pick your wager amount and you get one chip to drop. This option is nice because it can appeal to the high rollers who want to risk $20+ dollars instead of just $5. If I do this, the 8 spots could be labeled as a multiplier of your bet. Like maybe 2x / 0 / 1x / 0 / 3x / 0 / 1x / 0.
I'm open to suggestions. It's for charity so I have no problem blatantly favoring the house.
