BUZZR: WHAMMY’S BIGGEST WHAMMIES!
TUNE INTO BUZZR FOR A FRESH COLLECTION OF PRESS YOUR LUCK EPISODES SHOWCASING THE FIRST EVER “WHAMMY’S BIGGEST WHAMMIES” EXTRAVAGANZA!
BUZZR is here to alleviate the pain of Tax Day (April 15) with some highly curated game show losses. Thanks to iconic show, Press Your Luck, viewers will have the chance to relive some of the biggest losses in game show history. Someone else’s loss that is …a cathartic experience indeed!
Catch all the Whammies at their best during the Press Your Luck’s “Whammy’s Biggest Whammies” marathon on BUZZR.
BUZZR has gone and done us all a favor and collected 8 brand new to the network Press Your Luck episodes. Starting at 4:00p ET until 8pm ET on Sunday, April 14th you can witness over $230,000 lost to the feared, but revered Whammy. No deductions allowed!
Press Your Luck is an iconic American game show in which contestants earn spins on an 18-space game board by correctly answering trivia questions. Depending on where spins land, players can win prizes and cash – but only the player with the highest total in winnings keeps their loot and becomes the Press Your Luck champion.
So why fear the Whammy? Well, landing on the Whammy, the dreaded bright red cartoon character with a high-pitched voice, reduces a contestant’s score back to zero.
Much like how you might feel when Monday the 15th rolls around…back at zero.
This tax season, the infamous red “Whammy” reminds us that POTUS isn’t the only one out for Big Bucks!
