There are many examples of specified sponsorship in the past with $500 added to the Sr GM purse or $1000 added to Women Pro only. Having a basket added specifically for the Advanced winner is the same type of thing as specified cash and that happens regularly.
Except that the basket normally doesn't boost the Advanced payout for 1st place; it simply replaces it or compensates part of it.
