Gaming The System

It turns out you can hack the lottery. I'm always in favor of turning the tables on the casino, especially when the casino has what's clearly a rigged game. In honor of those who manage to take the house, here's Michael Larson, the Ohio ice cream truck driver who took  Press Your Luck to the house in the '80s.

There's a TAL about this guy. Apparently he was a bit of a nutter.

I knew about Michael Larson before Ira Glass made him cool. #hipstercred

The Press Your Luck host actually narrated a special on him for some channel.
