1980s TV Game Show Returns As Facebook Game

Fans of 1980s game shows are in luck, as “Press Your Luck” has come back to life as a Facebook game.

Interactive entertainment company Ludia, part of television producer FremantleMedia Enterprises, is behind the Press Your Luck Facebook game, which allows the social network’s users in North America to:

  • Participate in live, multiplayer games with friends and other Facebook users.
  • Follow their friends’ progress in the games.
  • Enjoy elements from the original “Press Your Luck” TV game show, including the theme music, the spinning board, and the Whammy.
  • Challenge and send spins to friends in order to avoid losing money already won to a Whammy.
