Would the original High Rollers theme count?

I was thinking that, but it was used to send the show to commercial throughout the '78 run.

You're right. I was thinking more of the opening and the close. Forgot about the commercial breaks.

How about the original LMAD, pre-Vegas, where the band did the music live? The opening theme was a shortened version of the main melody, but there was no music going to commercial. And even in the Vegas run, they used a different cue.

The opening was also in a different key.

Pretty sure "Play the Percentages" qualifies.

Unless you count the "Plaaaaaaaay the percentages!" singer, who I think starts off the end theme too? 

With Whew!, the closing is the opening theme in another key, no?  You also hear the one part, again different key, as the Gauntlet of Villains reveal theme. 
Post over.  You may enter your smarmy comebacks here.

No, it's a different piece all together.

Different tempo and the closing doesn't have the synth riff that the Gauntlet does; it might also be a different key, but the closing modulates between keys.
This signature is currently under construction.

Treasure Hunt 1981-82 had a unique closing theme different from the opening/70s theme.

They occasionally used the main theme going to commercial, but I think they used the opening march as well.
