* Before the Whammy became an iconic game show figure on ''PressYourLuck'', there was a figure called Sammy the Whammy on a 1960s game show called ''Beat The Odds''. Contestants tallied scores by creating four-and-five-letter words from letters spun on two wheels (the words had to start with the first letter and end with the second). A wheel stopping on Sammy wiped a player's score to zero.
