* ObviousRulePatch: The Big Bank, which made the car ''much'' more likely to be won. Kind of hard to miss the display below the contestants... [[spoiler:The only car given away in a regular game was won through the Big Bank, after several Whammies took the key halves from other players.]]

TrademarkFavoriteFood: One of the Whammy animations has a Whammy that loves M&M's and dives into a bowl of them, then starts swimming; Todd actually joked on one instance "the Whammy that melts in your mouth, not in your hands". This Whammy would be used even if the contestant didn't earn the [=M&Ms=] supply in Round 1 as a plug-in.

* InflationNegation: Premiered 16 years after ''Series/PressYourLuck'' ended, but retained the same nominal values in Square #4 despite inflation going up about 63% in America during that span. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], in that a cable network most definitely a smaller budget than Creator/{{CBS}}.
