Epic Win is a British game show which began airing on BBC One on 20 August 2011. Presented by Alexander Armstrong the programme sees contestants complete individual challenges such as trying to dress while bouncing a football or cycling while trying to inflate hot water bottles. Those who complete their challenge go to the "Epic Centre" and have the opportunity to win between £3 and £3,000, depending on what the panellists think this is worth. The panel is made up of Micky Flanagan and two guest judges. Comedian Joe Lycett appears as the announcer on the show. Critics have compared it as the BBC's answer to ITV's You Bet!.
