I posted about Deal or NO Deal the other week. My interest in the programme, though, is mild in comparison with the Bother’s Bar website. Click here for exhaustive statistics from every game of Deal or No Deal. Bear it in mind if you ever spend three months in a Travel Lodge near Bristol waiting for your 45 minutes of televisual fame.
Incidentally, I think I’ve worked out how the Banker assessed the value to be offered once we are down to 14 boxes and onwards.
Add up the values not yet revealed, then divide by twice the number of boxes remaining. This generally gives an indication of the figure offered.
For the final box when only two are left the figure offered is usually approximately a third of the value of the remaining boxes.
Figures offered vary depending on how obnoxious the punter is. The more obnoxious and obviously greedy, the lower the amount offfered. There is a nice little morality tale in there somewhere.
