  FREEHOLD – One lucky Freehold man made history this week on The Price Is Right, winning more than $200,000 in Plinko.

  On Monday’s episode of the game show, Michael Stouber made a name for himself as the show’s biggest daytime winner.

  “Show me the money!! Michael just became the biggest winner in daytime Price Is Right history! Drop a 💲 below, and let’s make it rain!!” read a tweet from the game show’s official account.

  Stouber was a contestant during The Price Is Right’s “Big Money Week” where contestants have the chance to win more cash and bigger prizes while on the show. During “Big Money Week,” contestants can also partake in Million Dollar Plinko, which is where Stouber “made it rain.”

  After guessing the correct prices of four items, Stouber received four Plinko chips to play. Not wasting any time, he hit the big-winner with his first chip: the $200,000 prize. With his remaining chips, Stouber won an additional $2,000.

  Not only that, but Stouber also made out with a new car, a diamond bracelet and a trip to tropical Fiji. Overall, he earned $262,742.97 in winnings.

  Stouber’s win bested the previous record of $213,876, won in 2016.
