** ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In the episode "Homer Goes to College", series villain Mr. Burns, the elderly owner of Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, offers Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors a ''Deal''-type offer bribe to escape sanctions for dire violations (most notably, employing dangerously underqualified employees; ''viz.'', Homer). As a bribe, the inspectors could pick either five thousand dollars or whatever is inside the mystery box. One inspector chooses the box but the other is too honest for either bribe.

After keeping his end of the deal, Peter is given a chance to trade the boat for whatever is inside a mystery box.

** The 2015 AprilFoolsDay episode had one contestant play Plinko; they seemed to like that idea so much that, the following year, they scheduled a full crossover week between the two shows for May sweeps.

These have included Cliff Hangers (instead of pricing small prizes, the player collects steps from choices of envelopes. Reaching certain milestones awarded prices, with finishing near the top -- but not falling, winning a car), Hole in One (the player had chances at three distances to putt for prizes, but moving closer awarded fewer), and 5 Price Tags (after being shown the infamous blooper from last season where Manuela accidentally revealed the answer in said game, guess the price in one try to win $20,000).

* ConfettiDrop: If the Super Deal is won on the Brady version, money falls from the ceiling. A couple of Big Deal wins on the short-lived 1991 version were accompanied by balloons being dropped on the car.
* ConsolationPrize: On the Wayne Brady version, Wayne may sometimes give a contestant who got a {{Zonk}} a small amount of money (usually $100) as consolation, although Wayne may make the contestant do something to earn it, such as dancing or singing. This was also present in the Hall eras, but typically not on-air (after each show, those who got a Zonk were instead offered some cash or a nice prize; several actually kept their Zonks, which Hatos-Hall had to honor).
