On the Press your Luck TV show any contestant busting the $25,000 mark could keep winnings over $25,000. Michael Larsen played in this period, and was allowed to keep $85,000 or so in excess of the $25,000 limit that he won. In the online version of the game http://www.getminted.com offer far more than the TV show had up for grabs with up to a £250,000.00 jackpot.

What's the Whammy? It's a little red devilish creature he winks, had has an evil smile, he uses a yellow cape, and brandishes a "£" on his front, a la Superman. For the web site some of the 50 whammies developed throughout the years on TV show have been given life once more, whenever they are hit by a player on the bonus board, a computer animation appears in front of the unfortunate online contestant, mocking them in several ways and it means they lose.
Press Your Luck was the definitive game show of the 1980's. It lasted 3 years and was hosted by Peter Tomarken who was a perfect fit for the game. Though the show didn't get swept up in the game show revival of 2000, http://www.getminted.com has brought it online where it will compete with and outperform online versions of The Weakest Link and Millionaire.
The format was a TV show truly ahead of its time, it appeals to the I want action now now now attitude of the TV viewing public and this fact will ensure it works well for the online audiences around the world which is clearly massive compared to any TV network.
