Press Your Luck Conspiracy

I've been dabbling in conspiracy theories lately - well, things broadly defined as conspiracies anyway. I hadn't heard the one about the guy - Michael Larsen - who figured out Press Your Luck.

An excerpt:

"CBS executives, scared that they were now victims of a Quiz Show-type scandal, hurriedly called a meeting with Brockman and the producers. The network would be reluctant to air the show without an investigation. Brockman pressed the CBS lawyers to prove that what Larsen was doing was illegal -- but they couldn't. What everyone was forced to acknowledge was that Larsen had figured out the game, and had won. It was like being a card counter at a blackjack table."
