Your Top Push Your Luck Games
I saw someone on BGG make a DIY Can't Stop board look like a casino game with felt & poker chips- I think that would appeal more.
Has anyone played Reiner Knizia's Exxtra ?
Not all PYL games use dice. I recall repoman say he likes Knizia's Double or Nothing , which uses cards.
The game is super easy, super fun and very beer friendly. But we also play it with the kids as a short filler before bedtime for instance. Sans beer, though.

Heck Meck is another push your luck favorite.
Yes a classic, plus has the bonus of attacking your opponents trophy pile !
Another couple of games that index heavily on PYL:
Diamant/Incan Gold is great fun and scales well to higher player counts.
Deep Sea Adventure gets a bit of a mixed reception but is generally well received.
Deep Sea Assholes [Adventure] is a current favorite, though any individual game seems a bit hit-or-miss, and it really changes drastically based on player count. It's also a game where the first time you play it you will get absolutely destroyed despite everyone telling you what not to do.
I think my all time favorite is Geschenkt (No Thanks!). Super fun, easy to learn, tiny footprint. I may also be biased by a game that involved my parents-in-law and a bottle of absinthe...
All these push-your-luck games fall squarely into the bucket of great things to bring to family events that feature people who are 65+
