Tipping Point fans have shared a tactic they believe could be the secret to guaranteed success on the hit ITV game show.
Ben Shephard fans tuned in for another instalment of the dramatised arcade game, which sees contestants battle it out to win a cash prize.
The game show consists of a series of questions quizzers must answer to win counters, which are then dropped into a huge arcade-style coin machine separated into four drop zones.
ITV viewers have identified these drop zones as the potential keys to success, claiming some are more likely to lead to a win than others.
During the latest instalment of the game show, hosted by the Good Morning Britain presenter, eagle-eyed viewers claimed there are two of the four drop zones which have better chances of success.
Tipping Point fans debated the theory on Twitter, with one writing: “Always put the jackpot counter down 1 or 4.
They added: “Then you don’t have this b******* about having to change zones.”
Another agreed as a contestant did not pick these zones and lost out, writing: “Have these people never watched before. You should choose Z1 or 4.”
Fellow viewers shared their thoughts, as one tweeted: “That’s why you don’t pick 2 or 3, can get pushed into other zones easily.”
Another chimed in: “And this is the reason 1 and 4 are the preferable zones.”
This comes after Tipping Point fans were left “confused” by a crucial format change to the show to celebrate its 10-year anniversary on ITV screens.
As the show returned to screens, Ben introduced the contestants, but many fans quickly noticed there were only three initial quizzers as opposed to four.
Taking to Twitter, one fan demanded: “What sorcery is this? Only 3 contestants. When did this travesty transpire,” as another chimed: “Has contestant four been vaporised?”
A third ITV viewer wrote: “I’m confused only 3 contenders??” as another asked a similar question: “When did Tipping Point start with 3 contestants?”
Another fan weighed in to say they “don’t like this new format” as another confused viewer questioned: “I thought Tipping Point started with 4 contestants?”
Host Ben Shephard announced a shake-up to the series, which first launched in 2012, as it returns for a brand new season.
To mark the anniversary, Ben told This Morning ’s Vernon Kay and Josie Gibson that the new series may look a little different.
He told the TV presenters: “We love the support we’ve had from so many watching it, ten years of Tipping Point, thank you to everyone who has watched it.
“A few changes for this series as well, you can see there are only three contestants so you’ll get to see that in the daytime shows at 4pm on ITV.”
