TriviaEdit

  • When a $3,000,000 top prize was up for grabs on the 3rd March 2006, the lowest prize was jokingly upped to $0.03 instead of $0.01. When case #5 was opened later in the show, $0.01 was revealed. To make it $0.03, host Howie Mandel took two literal pennies out of his pockets and laid them on the table.
  • On the Thanksgiving 2007 special, $0.01 was replaced by"GRAVY." This was the only time a gag prize has ever replaced $0.01.
