Patrick is looking for a number to beat LiteBulb88's score. Will he do it with one spin I don't think so...

10

A dime. Spin again. Looking for anywhere between .80 and .90. Uh oh look out here comes that 90 but is it too fast?!...

5

Ouch just a tad too much muscle on that last spin. Thank you PatrickRox80. LiteBulb88 you have a shot at redemption! You'll join tpir04 in our Showcases which are happening right after this!

I donít ever recall anyone hitting Add-A-One in the original version either when $10,000 was won prior to that.  Granted it was only around for a year.   The thing is that the CBS limits were $25,000 and $50,000 during PYLís 80s run, so in the event that someone would have hit five digits in the first half, they probably would have taken A-A-ONE of the board.

I think five figures have definitely been won in first half, but as mentioned, itís difficult.  Not many money and a spin spaces in Round one.  If someone were to do it in the 80s, they would have to accumulate a lot of spins (not easy) and hit the big bucks about 6-7 times.  Both are possible, but whatís more likely is doing both while hitting a whammy in-between that run.

I used to love the A-A-ONE back in the day, even during the USA airings.  Personally, I could take it or leave it.  I was pleasantly surprised that it was hit to get to a total exceeding $100,000 (though I feared that a whammy would wreck that historic moment).  From there I think it was a mistake to remove it from the board.  I think it shouldíve been made available for the other contestants.  Itís cash, not a car or some other prize.  That way it opens the door for someone else (or everyone) to hit it for six-figures.  That, and I wonít have to root against a contestant that has no shot at winning short of a whammy costing the leading contestant money that he or she wonít reach, win or lose.

Again, nice win within a great episode.  I don't think we'll see that again

3 and 5.

I'll only stay on an amount that meets or beats LiteBulb88.

It's been over a day since the show aired and this thread is full of spoilers anyway, so I'm not going to use white text here. Add a One was part of the original PYL; however, the amounts on the board were so small that it was extremely unlikely anyone would ever get to $10,000 without hitting Add a One. (Even Michael Larson was only able to get $2,500 in the first round.) And once Add a One was hit, it was taken off the board and replaced by a prize, so there was no concern about someone having $1,000-$9,999 and then hitting Add a One twice in a row. So it was very very unlikely anyone in the 1980s version would hit Add a One and have it add $100,000 to their total.
And furthermore, in the CBS run, Add a One was only used in Round 1, specifically to avoid it being hit for too much.

There goes his spin. Looking for a big number for a good enough score to advance to the Showcase. There goes a bunch of big numbers so let's see what he ends up with...

65

.65. And he's spinning again! The audience doesn't sound too sure of that idea but it just might maybe work out for him...

25

.25! .65 and .25 is .90 a good gamble. Take your spot over there please. 123123123 you're up let's see if you can tie or better that score. It's looking like it's in the same area as the prior spin...

25

.25. Spin again. Looking for anywhere between .65 and .75 to have a shot here. Can you believe this?

25

.25 again! Three in a row. Unfortunately .50 isn't enough to beat LiteBulb88. Thank you numbers! It's your turn PatrickRox80!

Actually,

It's been hit at least a couple times previously.  What happened is in those cases, the contestant only had a 4 digit total (say $5,695), so the added 1 made it $15,695, which doesn't make it the same impact as this time did going from 5 digit total to 6 digit total.  So, it really depends on when someone hits it.

Unconfirmed scuttlebutt on Atlanta sports talk radio is that Dan Quinn's job is riding on the next two games (Chicago,  @ Green Bay). They're favored against Chicago,  an underdog against the Packers.
