About The Price is Right Live

The live version of the show started at select casinos before becoming a traveling show. It still features famous games like Plinko, Cliffhangers, The Big Wheel, and more. In addition to the well-known games, it also includes the Showcase. 

For guests to have a chance to be contestants they must register before the show with the registration process opening up three hours before the show. To register guests must be 18 years or older. For some casinos, the registration age is raised to 21 or older depending on the rules of the venue. 

You don’t have to have a ticket to be a contestant as long as you register before the start of the show. Once the show starts guests will be notified if they were selected as a contestant for that live show. 

From the registered lists, guests are randomly selected to be contestants. 

So far the show has 36 tour dates announced from now through April. It also features a changing celebrity guest host throughout the tour.
