Press Your Luck is a TV game show that originally aired on ABC in the 1980s and 90s. In 2019, the show was revived with actress Elizabeth Banks as the host. The show also features voice-over announcer Neil Ross and co-host Cathy Cisneros. The show's main gameplay involves a giant game board filled with various prize amounts and Whammy spaces. The contestants take turns hitting a button to stop the board from spinning, hoping to land on a prize amount without hitting a Whammy. If a contestant hits a Whammy, they lose all their money and prizes accumulated up to that point. The game continues until one contestant reaches a certain amount of money or until all contestants have hit a Whammy.

In addition to the main gameplay, there are also various bonus rounds and special features. One such feature is the "Big Board," which gives contestants a chance to win larger prizes and cash bonuses. Another feature is the "Question Round," where contestants answer trivia questions to earn spins on the game board.

The show prides itself on its high-energy atmosphere and exciting gameplay. The set is designed with bright colors and flashing lights, and the music and sound effects add to the excitement. The contestants, often dressed in colorful outfits, are also encouraged to be enthusiastic and upbeat.

One of the unique aspects of Press Your Luck is the Whammy character. The Whammy is a cartoon-like figure that appears on the game board and taunts the contestants when they hit a Whammy space. The Whammy often appears in humorous costumes or situations, such as riding a surfboard or breaking through a wall.

While the gameplay and set design are reminiscent of the original show, the 2019 revival brings some new elements as well. Elizabeth Banks brings a fresh energy and humor to the hosting role, often engaging in banter with the contestants. The show also incorporates modern technology, with a social media component that allows viewers to interact with the show and win prizes.

Overall, Press Your Luck is a fun and exciting game show that offers a chance for contestants to win big prizes and for viewers to enjoy some lighthearted entertainment. With its colorful design, lively music, and enthusiastic contestants, the show is sure to keep audiences engaged and entertained.

Press Your Luck is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (53 episodes). The series first aired on June 11, 2019.
