* AdaptationDisplacement: ''Press Your Luck'' was a revival of the 1977 Creator/{{ABC}} game ''Series/SecondChance'', also by Bill Carruthers. It doesn't help that only two episodes of ''Second Chance'' still exist on video, and a third on audiotape.

* NeverLiveItDown: Michael Larson is best remembered for "cheating" during his miracle run, although in actuality he was playing by the rules. He just paid very close attention to the light patterns the show used and took advantage of them not being as random as the show claimed, In spite of this, Larson consistently can be seen on "Top Game Show Cheaters" lists.

** The 2009 game used the pilot theme as, according to Ludia, Fremantle didn't have the master copy of the series' theme and forbade them from using the various full-length clean copies circulating on the Internet. To add further insult, the board sound used is the original one and plays for ''one second''. Oddly, the PS3 version uses the series theme and a looping board sound.

* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Early in the series, a contestant called for a pool table, and actually landed on it, which Peter noted was a first. Sadly, she hit a Whammy later in the round, losing the table.
* OvershadowedByControversy: If there's one main thing ''anyone'' will know about the show besides the Whammys, it's Michael Larson's infamous [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomping]] of the show's setup and the resulting legal battle that ensued.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The prize cue music, made even more awesome when a contestant wins enough to have it played in full. In one particularly memorable instance during Christmas 1984, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzNanw_ga90 it played to nearly two full loops (starting 29 seconds in).]]
