Box 22 had..

£50,000

You probably would have swapped for 19 which did contain the £100,000

Now for 23..

You've got no choice regarding this #MoneyMenu..

BOX 23 JACKPOT (£70,000) = £94,000 & BB
DOUBLE = £48,000 & BB
ADD HALF = £36,000 & BB
MONEY BACK = £24,000
-£10,000 = £14,000
HALF = £12,000
10% = £2,400

So, those options have been randomised and I need you to select one, 1-7!

Well, that was a lucky Banker escape.

To be honest, what scared me into dealing when I did was the possibility of the Banker not making any finincial offers for the rest of the game (as he is allowed to offer a SWAP when the button is used). It turns out the exact opposite would've occured.

Still, I definitely would've dealt one of the first two prove-out offers had I went on, so a £50,000+ box win was never on the cards.

Let's hope I can stumble into another way of winning big as I choose Option 1 for Box 23.

DOUBLE = £188,000
MONEY BACK = £94,000
MONEY BACK = £94,000

A small #MoneyMenu, but a very rich one. Finding the DOUBLE would put you on the top 25 winners list. Can you find it? 1, 2 or 3?

Sadly not, but you can't be at all disappointed with £94,000!

The power of the post main game boxes. Archstered's DoND Strikes Again! The Banker sure got his comeuppance in that game!

Until the next one, cheerio!

I said I'd hunt for millions and I did indeed end up winning millions.......of pence. ;)

Thanks for hosting, Archie. :smt023

That "strategy" the banker used to scuttle the Box 23 upgrade seemed completely gamebreaking. Given in a normal game of that the player's offer button doesn't interrupt the upgrade, wouldn't it make more sense for it to just go 11-8, 8-5, and 5-2 like everyone would generally expect? That makes things a lot more fair in that regard and prevents the banker from making it entirely worthless like that.

I hate to stick up for The Banker, but Ben was incredibly unlucky to hit LOCK IN during an Archstered's DoND game. To avoid further upset and questions, I'll update the rules.

Remember, The Banker is a mean creature who wants to crush dreams and pay out as little winnings as possible and, sometimes, there will be controversial aspects to the way he operates. Give him a break though, he just paid out £94k ;)

Suffice to say that Box 23 gave the Banker what he deserved! :D :D

I know I have my own series, but I truly think Archie's is the gold standard here, and a big reason why is how he pushes the boundaries of gameplay and reacts to the scenarios he produces. We saw the former in the game here, and the latter in the impending clarification :)
