* Michael Larson figuring out that the Big Board actually used about 5-6 patterns rather than the perceived random bouncing light, gaming the system for $110,237. How he did it was even more awesome. He taped the show for several months, and watched them in slow motion until he had memorized the specific patterns before coming to the show. His AwesomeByAnalysis is ''why'' the production staff had to not only revamp the board, but cap the winnings at $25,000.

* One game featured a return champ named Greg down to three Whammies with four spins left, with the leader over $11,000 and another player still to play. Greg took two spins to get into second place, then passed the spins along to the leader, who hit a Whammy on the final passed spin, losing over $13,500 in the process. The player who won the right to play last took her total to over $10,000 (with Greg sitting at $3500) and passed her final two spins to Greg, who had to make up a $6,000 difference without hitting a Whammy. Greg's first passed spin was worth $500, taking him to $4000, but would need a One Spin square to stay alive. Amazingly, he hit $5,000 + One Spin with his last spin and decided to play the new final spin himself...and hit $2000 to pass the leader and take the win in an incredible comeback fashion.
* A contestant won over $21,000 without hitting a Whammy, despite having to take ''eight'' passed spins in the final round.
