* One game featured a return champ named Greg down to three Whammies with four spins left, with the leader over $11,000 and another player still to play. Greg took two spins to get into second place, then passed the spins along to the leader, who hit a Whammy on the final passed spin, losing over $13,500 in the process. The player who won the right to play last took her total to over $10,000 (with Greg sitting at $3500) and passed her final two spins to Greg, who had to make up a $6,000 difference without hitting a Whammy. Greg's first passed spin was worth $500, taking him to $4000, but would need a One Spin square to stay alive. Amazingly, he hit $5,000 + One Spin with his last spin and decided to play the new final spin himself...and hit $2000 to pass the leader and take the win in an incredible comeback fashion.
