*** In the bonus round, three Jokers won the "oker's Jackpot. If you spun less than three Jokers on one spin, they had to be converted to try to complete a triple of a prize that was on the reels. Two prizes and a Joker meant you could choose which prize to make a pair for, then use the last reel to get the third prize for the triple.

*** However, since the player trailing at the end of Round 1 spun first in Round Two, it was possible to be eliminated mathematically by either not spinning a combo on the final spin to catch up, or the other player getting a lead above \$1000 at the end of the second spin (in which not even three Jokers could catch up as it was worth only \$1000).

** At least the 2017 version averted this regarding spins on the Joker Machine- for the first round players get to spin at least four times, and three more times in the second round, making the cash scores less relevant to the win. But on the flip-side, one of the minigames involving rolling a die to determine how many questions you have to answer in a question is definitely this.

** The bonus round in the 2017 version now has the goal to get \$10,000 or more without hitting the Devil to win \$25,000, and a Natural Triple here was NOT an automatic win, unlike the Jack Barry version. So it plays it straight here.

** '''2017:''' "Face the Devil" is back once more, but [[CompositeCharacter now with elements of the "Jokers and Devils" endgame]]. Money amounts from \$300 to \$1500 (and, expectedly, one of the amounts is [[TheStoner \$420]]), with Jokers worth \$2000. If the contestant manages to reach the \$10,000 mark, they win \$25,000. The Devils are there as usual and take away all cash accumulated in the endgame.

** '''1990-91:''' The winner would be read definitions and try to identify the word; guessing correctly would get you a spin on the Joker Machine. Various prizes (trips, merchandise, and cash from \$500-\$2,000) were on the displays, and could be frozen after each spin; three of anything won. Jokers couldn't be frozen, however, and had to be converted that spin...but spinning three Jokers ''on the first spin'' won the Joker's Jackpot, which at one point got as high as \$36,000.

** Averted in the 2017 version: If Jokers come up, they MUST be played for full value. If you have two different categories and a Joker, you can choose which one to use the Joker with, though. Of course, these are "only spinner can answer questions" where a wrong answer does NOT give the opponent the chance to steal the cash.
