** Top dollar for Round 2, formerly FREE 5000 SPIN, had the printed dollar value changed to an Eggcrate display shuffling between $1000 and $5000 in a pattern of "1-2-1-4-3-2-1-5-3-2-1-2-5-1-3-4" - five $1000, four $2000, three $3000, and two each of $4000 and $5000. In other words, [4] was generally worth far less than it had been.
*** One fan around the late 1990s, Charles Blaquiere, recalled the sequence as "1-2-1-4-3-2-1-5-3-2-1" - the first ''11'' digits of the actual 16-digit pattern.

** Top dollar for Round 2, formerly FREE 5000 SPIN, had was changed to look ''very'' different from the rest of the board. Most notably, the printed dollar value changed to an Eggcrate display shuffling between $1000 and $5000 in a pattern of "1-2-1-4-3-2-1-5-3-2-1-2-5-1-3-4" - five $1000, four $2000, three $3000, and two each of $4000 and $5000. In other words, [4] was generally worth far less than it had been.

[[note]](Though given how little is available of the series, it's entirely possible this ''was'' the pattern the show used at one point. For reference, the May 31 and June 27 shows use the 16-digit pattern.)[[/note]]

*** Top dollar for Round 2, formerly FREE 5000 SPIN, had the printed dollar value changed to an eggcrate display shuffling between $1000 and $5000. 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"; the surfacing of the June 27 show proved him right, although the pattern continued with "2-5-1-3-4". The net result was that [4] was generally worth far less than it had been: five $1000, four $2000, three $3000, two $4000, and two $5000.
