Can You Win Deal Or No Deal?
How much were you destined to win in this virtual game?
Hello... Welcome to this classic game of Deal Or No Deal. In a moment I'm going to ask you to select a box. Got it?
OK.. Here are your choices. Are any of them giving you any vibes? Which box would you like?
Good. Over the next five questions I'm going to ask you to eliminate five boxes. After that you're going to get an offer from the banker. Got it?
Strike one: Which of these two boxes do you want to eliminate?
Strike two: Which of these two boxes do you want to eliminate?
Strike three: Which of these two boxes do you want to eliminate?
Strike four: Which of these two boxes do you want to eliminate?
Strike five: Which of these two boxes do you want to eliminate?
The boxes you have eliminated contain the following values... 1p, 10p, £750, £5,000
and £100, 000. This means that none of these values will be in YOUR box. You're about to get an offer from the banker. You can choose to either 1. deal the banker's offer OR 2. reject the banker's offer and pursue to winning the sum that is in your box. Got it?
The banker has made you the following offer:
£37, 000. That is a very generous offer from the banker. He asks you to consider this offer very carefully. If you deal the banker's offer that is the value you win. If you choose not to deal, you may proceed to find out what's in the contents of your box. What will you do?
You've decided to reject the banker's awesome offer for BOX 12. On some occasions risks pay off but not this time! Bummer.
You've decided to reject the banker's awesome offer for BOX 15. On some occasions risks pay off but not this time! Bummer.
You're walking away with the contents of BOX 17 (£3, 000). Although that is somewhat less than the banker's offer, you've still got something to invest. Cheer up, it could have been worst.
You're walking away with the contents of BOX 24: worth £20, 000.. Although that is something less than the banker's generous offer, you can still use it to buy that awesome car or to go on that dream holiday! Great.
Well done! You had a gut feeling about BOX 4 and you have well and truly spanked the banker! Your box is worth twice the sum of the banker's offer. It seems you have a way with numbers!
CONGRATULATIONS! *Confetti falling all over you* You have won the jackpot prize and all because of your gut instinct to reject the banker's offer! You have an intuition for numbers and going with your gut instinct over BOX 21 certainly worked. This only happens to special people. How about applying to the show for real?
You have chosen to deal at the banker's offer. You did not want to risk it and that means you go away with at least £37, 000. Well done! Better safe that sorry.
Your box contains £750. Oh no... that is significantly less than the banker's generous offer. However, at least you walk away with something.
