As long as we keep at least one of the 6 figure sums, you'll be faced with some sort of decision.

Box 2-

£2,000

PERFECT first box! The 3k now and we'll be safe.

Box 4-

£100,000

Very uncomfortable! It all comes down to this final box.

Box 9-

£3,000

SAFE! And a guaranteed £20,000!

You've done it again!

£150,000


**RING**

A sensible offer to take here, he proclaims! Before he gives you that offer, just to let you know the offer at 5 box WOULD have been £40,000.

BANKER'S OFFER

£75,000

Dare I say that 5-box might have trapped Ben into playing on anyway given his tendencies?

I think that's the right offer for this 2-box.

Interesting psychological tactic there, as I would've almost certainly dealt the £40,000 with a 30% "disaster" chance.

This offer is more arguable either way, though, with £20,000 guaranteed. I may regret this, but I really wanted to try for 6 figures if it was reasonably achievable, and as I won't be willing to risk £75,000 on Box 23 the way to do it is to take the big risk here, so NO DEAL!!! :eyes: :eyes: :smt120 :smt120

SWAP for Box 19, please.

Alright! You've just declined £75,000 in the hope of winning double!

**RING**

The SWAP is not always offered, but he'll happily oblige here.

Box 19 is now on the table.

Interestingly, I thought you'd have turned £40k down because it was a little under 75% of the mean on a board that could possibly be described as stable, and it was under £50k with a big chance of getting over £50k!

Of course, you might get £40k anyway here...

Well, we know you won't be buying Box 23 if Box 19 contains £150,000... So we better hope it had!

Earlier on today, we gave away £188,000.. I said at the beginning of this game I hoped for something similar or more - I would argue £150,000 is in very similar territory.

Has Box 19 got what you really, really want?

Box 19-

£20,000

Absolutely gutting! :(


Box 6-

£150,000

Your original box held £150k.


Box 23..

Now, I also said something else at the beginning of your game, and that was about a disastrous Box 23..

BOX 23 JACKPOT (£70,000) = £90,000
DOUBLE = £40,000
MONEY BACK = £20,000
HALF = £10,000
NOTHING = £0

There's your #MoneyMenu

You could actually deal it and win more than the £75,000 you declined, but you could also lose everything and become the 30th member of the Nothing Network..

With £20,000, would you like to buy Box 23, Deal or No Deal?

Un fortunately, that's how the cookie crumbles half of the time after a big 2 box risk. At least I still can recover the situation somewhat.

Let's do this: DEAL.

Option 3, please.

Well, absolutely no change! You still leave with £20,000.

What a climax that was! The Deal Wheel proved to be Ben's downfall in the end, locking him in from 7 box to 2 box, he declined a £75,000 offer to take home £55k less.

Gripping stuff! Until the next game, cheerio!
