Gamers vie for "big bucks" and "no whammies" in Press Your Luck: 2010 Edition, an updated home video game version of the cult-classic 1980s television game show. Players begin by creating custom avatars to represent them in the game. As on TV, three contestants compete to be the first to correctly answer trivia questions, which are often based on pop culture or current events. Any player can be the first to buzz in with an answer as the question is being revealed. Correct answers are awarded spins, which are used to earn money and win the game. Spins are taken on a large, rectangular board with squares around its border. Flashing lights move from square to square, revealing different prizes and pitfalls, and players press a button to stop the moving lights and claim the item currently displayed on the lit square. If the lit square contains money or merchandise, the value us added to the point total. However if the lit square contains a "whammy" — the show's greedy little cartoon character mascot — the player loses all money and must begin again from zero. The game features 3,000 original questions for 2010, and 50 comical whammy animations, as seen on the television show. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
