Press Your Luck - In 1984, ice cream truck driver Michael Larson discovered with the help of his VCR’s pause button that the movements of the board weren't random but could be memorized. After nervously landing on a Whammy on his 1st attempt he spun 45x's without hitting another. He broke the bank, clearing $ 110,000 a record that still stands. It was determined there was no rule against memorizing but he was not invited back & the board was reprogrammed.
