There's even a little bonus for doing it while cashing. It's not as rare as you might think.

While it's less often nowadays, the reuse of prizes can sometimes lead to a showcase that can be perfectly priced by a skilled player. And in general with 000-250 ARPs being very rare, that increases the chances of a luck exacta that much more (I remember someone lucked into a 23456 exacta last season).

On multiple occasions.

Just wondering: has anyone ever pulled a Terry on the CSS?  (i.e., getting the price of a showcase exactly right)

Thupa had a good memory today and picked out that seemingly random hot tub - it was a OB back on October 30, and was $4499. Not exactly a Beachcomber here. However, the Bayliner F18 did strike again, so SC2 still got pretty up there. I cash 2 for the 2nd day in a row thanks to all that...

I'm pretty sure we haven't seen that particular Canada before in SC1. Or maybe the ski equipment was pretty expensive too? Because we know the HR-V certainly is not. Another mystery to sort out if you care to try... Footix for the second week in a row benefits greatly on a x9757 bid for a DSW (and snipes cash from 2K - again!).

We were very close to double points today, as 3X came down to the final number. Unfortunately that will have to wait for Friday, when I'll see you all next.

Nice show with an Neat Lineup.
Heartbreaking Losses in 3X and Switcheroo.

Oh yeah, the Purple Wheel...while it was fun to see the old dollar sign pattern from the 80s make a comeback, it was so ugly that Drew made fun of it the one week it was on.
Ah yes, his infamous "wait til you see what they've done to the wheel!" comment going into commercial before the 1st SCSD. The purple wheel would have to be part of a "ugly sweater party" show too.

  The Ferris Wheel set from Pick-A-Pair should also be added to this list.  The trade-off for the excruciatingly long gameplay is that we got to hear the entirety of the product description cues because it took 4 minutes for each product to rotate around to the front.
How about the first Dice Game set? It was fine for four-digit cars, but when they added the extra window to the left edge for the Deluxe edition, it came off as tacky.

Anyone having nightmares about the new Double Prices set yet? Those SuperBall!!! dollar signs should've stayed retired when the Big Wheel was redesigned for Season 37, because they now look like overkill in their current application.

3 Strikes fourth was definitely a surprise. Almost an incredible win after a slow start, too bad she pulled the 3rd strike instead of the last number. Switcheroo was painful too of course.

Very easy One Wrong Price, there was no way $1,667 was correct for the fridge.
