Today, with [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes just two episodes known to exist (plus a third, and the opening of a fourth, on audiotape)]], ''Chance'' is an obscurity to most, including some fans of both revivals. It's not without its fans, however, and if nothing else it shows how a classic was originally rough around the edges.

* ExtraTurn: Late in the run, the top money window was changed to a changing eggcrate display ($1,000-$5,000) with an additional spin. It was the only window to use the additional spin.

* LuckBasedMission: The pilots used a single 64-square pattern that went ''very'' fast, and while the series began with nine patterns they got more after the aforementioned huge winner...but by June 27 went to a single 128-square pattern. Of course, since the light moved faster than ''Press'', making it even less likely to be memorized.

* TransatlanticEquivalent: An Australian version by Reg Grundy [[http://www.memorabletv.com/australia/tvas.htm aired for a time]] in 1977, hosted by Earle Bailey and Christine Broadway. While almost nothing is known about it, Grundy's track record suggests it held very close to the American series, which makes it a shame that it seems to be gone.

* NoBudget: Compared to Pilot #3 and [[http://game-show-utopia.net/sounds/second%20chance.jpg earlier]] [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/41208947@N00/4418050215/ in the run]], by June 27 the Bonus Board became...rather cheap.
** '''Round 1:''' $250, $275, $300, $450, $475, $500, $650, $750, and $1,000.
** '''Round 2:''' $500, $575, $725, $800, $900, $950, $1,000, $1,200, and $1,500. And top dollar?
*** Top dollar for Round 2, formerly FREE 5000 SPIN, had the printed dollar value changed to an eggcrate display shuffling between $1,000 and $5,000. According to one fan (who was going on decades-old memory), the sequence was "1-2-1-4-3-2-1-5-3-2-1", of which the June 27 show proved him mostly correct (the pattern continued "2-5-1-3-4"). The net result was that Square #4 was generally worth far less than it had been.
