Rosalina is going to the Showcase, with $1,000 in her pocket! At this point, the Dig We Must cue is shortened by a measure when it is used for money wins; this is the same version used today, albeit in remade form. The longer version was still used through the end of 1994, so the change probably came about not long after the start of 1995.
