The first version was numbered 200, thus making 1,000 available for prizes. The second version was numbered 201, making 500 available for prizes. The third version was numbered 202 and became the long-running show beginning with episode 1002. Other versions of the game were taped at the time and featured the same game format with different prize options but, outside of the show’s initial basic format, were never given production numbers. A spin-off game, The One and Only Price Is Right, was taped in Atlanta, Georgia and aired locally in the Atlanta area on WYGA-TV beginning in the fall of 1976 under the same rules as its main counterpart, The Price Is Right.

The word “Jon” is simply part of Olson’s last name, as well as the first name of announcer Gary Owen. However, in the case of the game’s title, “Big Jon” is a reference to Big John Vorhees, a Minnesota state legislator (Kristian Olson’s birth name) who was credited in the show’s first half-hour run for “suggesting” the name for what would become The Price Is Right. According to the show’s set designers, the name came from the set’s prop department. It has also been suggested that the name is a reference to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., who remarked, “Drug prices are big business.”

Although it had originally been trademarked as Monopoly Lite, the game was retitled to Big Money in 1975 when it was reissued. On shows taped in October 1975 and before, a board was typically set up for that week’s show at CBS Television City at the former Sid Caesar Theater, now called The Muny Theatre. In later seasons, shows taped in October and November were broadcast from various other New York City venues, including The Columbia University Student Center.

Three of the four games played were derived from the 1971 Milton Bradley gameboard and the 1974 Game and Business set (C-3), and the 1997 Milton Bradley gameboard and the 1997 Game and Business set (C-4). Along with major changes to the television production of the show, the edge strips of the board that extend past the playing area were removed, and a smaller plastic plate was attached to the board to prevent the player from putting the edge strips back in play when the prize ran out. Another major change was the addition of three new game formats (C-5, C-6 and C-7) and, though game formats C-8 and C-17 had existed previously, they were not included in the main gameboard. These changes were done to shorten the game by 20 minutes and, to eliminate confusion, ensure that each game played was accurately represented in the show.
