** Another US contestant picked case number 6 as his first case because it was his daughter's age. Case number 6 contained the million dollars, knocking out the biggest value in the game ''on the first pick''.

* ShoddyKnockoffProduct: In 2006, the rival network Canale 5 poached the original host of the Italian version to host a very blatant ripoff called ''Fattore C''. It was basically the exact same game, except replacing the boxes with busts of celebrities, and adding funky rules such as the contestant needing to answer a question about one of the bust celebrities to receive an offer, and that the contestant could only keep what was in their box...-er bust, if it was the larger of the final two amounts. Needless to say, it got [[ScrewedByTheLawyers sued out of existence]].

* VacationEpisode: In 2008, the NBC version did a series of "World Tour" specials, filmed on the sets of international versions (or, to be more specific, international versions that were influenced by the American version) with cameos from the local hosts, including Estonia and the Philippines.

* AdaptationDistillation: As mentioned before, the game itself began as the bonus round of a Endemol-produced lottery game show in the Netherlands known as ''Miljoenenjacht'' (hosted by Linda de Mol, the sister of Endemol co-founder John de Mol). Basically, an audience of 500 contestants, divided into 10 sections, played a multi-stage elimination quiz (first going between the two halves of the studio as teams, then by the five sections within, then through the people in the section, with some ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' style bail-out offers and other things here and there too, etc). The single remaining contestant then played ''Deal'' as we know it. The show previously used a trivia-based bonus round where correct answers to seven multiple-choice questions added zeros to their prize (similarly to ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'''s Grand Game) with a top prize of 10,000,000 guilder) before switching to the briefcase game shortly after the official adoption of the Euro currency. The Miljoenenjacht format (quiz and all) did get exported to Belgium, but international versions either downsized the quiz portion into something more akin to the Fastest Finger rounds from ''Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'', picked a contestant randomly from a pool of contestants on-stage (like most European versions and the U.S. syndicated run), or just used a contestant pre-determined before the show (like the U.S. primetime version).

*** It also served as a reminder of how overblown the American ''Deal'' could be. The show never managed to give away that much money to a single contestant, and only ''twice'' did the US version give away seven-figure prize winnings - to its ''only'' two winners. And they had to make half the cases contain the Million just to force a win, and even ''then'' the first time they tried that '''it still didn't work'''. The US version couldn't manage even a ''normal'' win due to its broken format.

** The European daily versions enjoyed substituting certain low-value amounts with joke prizes. The Italian version, when hosted by the singer Pupo, had a prize called "Forse", wherein the prize was that he would sing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eHM4dl5c1A said song.]]
For the Thanksgiving specials and Christmas, $10 was replaced by a pumpkin pie and $25 by a turkey. The doubled suitcase top prize had a stuffed turkey inside as a humorous touch for the winner that never was.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEOL0CtQR4I This guy]] on the Australian version lost all four greens with his first four picks and got a bank offer of '''[[spoiler:ten cents]]'''. After all was said and done, heended up getting $10. He would come back for a special "Banker's Rematch" a few years later and did a lot better...but not before knocking out the $200,000 in his first pick '''again'''. [[spoiler:To make it even worse, the top amount was in #14, which was his [[KickTheDog original case]] in his initial game.]]

** One contestant on the US version walked away with $5, the lowest amount they ever gave away. Later [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in a special episode that looked back at the lowest winners, and the Banker was quoted as calling her his favorite contestant.
