California-- In honor of the 30th anniversary of the game Plinko, CBS will air an all-Plinko episode of "The Price is Right" in the fall.

"The Price is Right" filmed the special episode on Wednesday, June 26 and is scheduled to air on September 27.

How did that happen? "When we realized it was the 30th anniversary of Plinko, we wanted to do something special," executive producer Mike Richards told Buzzfeed. "And [host] Drew [Carey] and I have always wanted to do an all-Plinko show. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to keep trotting it out."

The audience was left in the dark about the special episode involving only the slot game until the cameras began rolling. During the game, some of the slot prizes included trips abroad and vehicles.
