Bootleg Sampler, despite its name, is an official Sega Saturn demo disc packaged with new consoles for a period in both North America and Europe. Like later demo discs, it features a number of playable demos and movie clips.

Three variants of the Bootleg Sampler were released among the US and Europe, with small differences.

The first version (US), contains three playable demos and eight videos, while the second version added a playable demo for Bug! (rather than the video presented in the first).

As both discs at first glance are visually identical, there are three easy ways to know what version you have;

The first is to either put the disc into a Sega Saturn and see which version you have by the menu screen.

The second and much easier way is to compare the CD Matrix Codes on the bottom of the CD you have (1008681031 for First version and 1008681031-2 for the Second).

The third is to insert the disc into a computer and find out the CD Header version of the disc (1.006 for the First version and 2.009 for the second). You can use a hex editor or an application such as Madrom's "Saturn Region Patcher (SRP)" to read this value.

The third version was the PAL release, which was identical to the second other than certain PAL related messages. The Bug! FMV is still on the game disc for the second USA and PAL release.

The PAL version was distributed with issue #3 of the UK's Sega Saturn Magazine.
