Don't know how many of these are on You Tube but this is pretty cool.

Good luck paying the taxes on those winnings.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Hilarious. Did he really write that in or was it 'shopped?

That's really interesting. CBS ultimately considered what he did not to be cheating but I think Vegas would have, right?

Really wrote it. I watched the episode when it first aired and I remembered feeling mad respect for Ken Jennngs' wit under pressure.

Yes. It's pretty akin to card counting. Of course, casinos are explicit about that rule, whereas Press Your Luck never told anyone they couldn't study the game. So I agree with that decision. He would have earned it with his home study, a lot more than most earn it on that kind of show where luck plays a big role.

The really unbelievable thing to me is that they would create such an obvious loophole in the first place. Were quasi random generators impossible in those days, or were the game designers just lazy?

They were too busy spaying or neutering their pets.
