Plinko!

Description

This project replicates "Plinko!", a game of chance featured on the long-running game show, The Price Is Right. In Plinko!, a contestant releases a chip at at a certain starting position on a pegboard. As the chip falls down the pegboard, it bounces off of pegs in nearly every row, eventually settling into one of several slots at the bottom of the board. Prize money is awarded to the contestant based on the final resting slot of the chip. 

This version will determine empirically how a chip's starting position affects the probability of it landing in a particular final slot.

To play, drop a ping pong ball into the board and record both the starting position (a letter from A to I) and final position (a number from 1 to 9).
