Jim Peck is usually remembered for hosting the infamous Three's A Crowd from 1979-80, but he also helmed the fan-favorite The Big Showdown from 1974-75.
Maggie Brown and Jack Campion, who appeared on Pilot #3, returned for the Press Your Luck pilot six-and-a-half years later. Maggie also appeared on Whew! Pilot #3 in 1978, although she played onseveralshows during their respective runs (including Press)...unlike Jack, who is not known to have done so despite playing on about nine different pilots from 1974-84.
Round 2: $500, $575, $725, $800, $900, $950, $1,000, $1,200, and $1,500. And top dollar?
Top dollar for Round 2, formerly FREE 5000 SPIN, had the printed dollar value changed to an eggcrate display shuffling between $1,000 and $5,000. According to one fan (who was going on decades-old memory), the sequence was "1-2-1-4-3-2-1-5-3-2-1", of which the June 27 show proved him mostly correct (the pattern continued "2-5-1-3-4"). The net result was that Square #4 was generally worth far less than it had been.
