Indeed. :D :D Much more than what was won on today's Deal...

I would have said Burger King.

I put it on Burger King too. I had made it to the last question with £325k. :(

£100,000 just won. :D

Didn't go for the double or nothing question... they saw what the two answers were... decided not to go for it, then after they showed the question and if they played on, would have got it right...

Anyone with an ounce of sanity would be wise to NOT gamble £100,000! ;)
I wouldn't have done it either and even if I did get the question right I wouldn't care because A HUNDRED GRAND is a lot of cash!

I am glad that MPD is back as I quite enjoy it but god did it need resting after some serious overkill last year.

I was not keen on the 4 player games, there was so much faffing about and it just didn't seem to work for me. What have they done to the music too? It sounds terrible, very tacky compared to how it used to sound.

I can't see anybody doing the final gamble. It's hard enough to win money on this show the first time around, they're not going to risk it all over again.

I was quite annoyed at how disgruntled some of the family who won last night, looked at winning £50k after turning down the gamble. This is one of the things that annoys me most about DOND. They look distraught because they could have had more, despite winning an incredible sum of money. Although at least Davina didn't rub it in and present it as a loss, like Noel seems to enjoy doing.

£125,000 won today! They did not go for the gamble question. I'm not surprised at the decision, £31,250 per person is a hell of a lot of cash! Plus they would have put the money on the wrong answer.

Well, exactly. I couldn't agree more. That's something which is thankfully becoming a lot more common here, the acknowledgement that the player won a massive sum regardless of the technical result of the game (when they did, of course; being distraught at winning 10p is understandable IMO ;) :lol: ).

I understand why and how the "oh but I could have had so much more" feeling can override anything else, I daresay I'd feel exactly the same so I'm not laying down the law to anyone by any means, but after a while, surely you'd have to realise "hang on, I've actually got £x sum which I never dreamt of before." Which should, ideally, cancel out the disappointment.

These Double or Nothing questions are stupid and a waste of time. There is absolutely no way 2 people are going to agree on risking £25,000+ on a 50/50 question unless they both absolutely know it, which is next to impossible with the late game questions on that show.

Agreed. I don't even know why they came up with that gimmick in the first place. Even if someone did get to Q8 with £1m still there (which is never going to happen, I know ;) ) there is just NO WAY they would risk all that money.

I see they've now changed it so that they throw the players into the gamble question to try and tempt some people into an impulse gamble.

I imagine they came up with the gimmick to try and look like they can give away more money. The majority of MPD wins are usually 25-75k in my experience, which, while great, is hardly close to the maximum potential win is it? So they were probably hoping to make it a bit more exciting and tempt some bigger wins. But I agree, it's a rubbish way of doing so and I can't see anybody doing it unless they're a) only left with 1 bundle and b) stupid.

In all honesty, I view that question as a final offer on Deal or no Deal, as the questions are always too obscure to know outright and they tend to be tricky enough for the more obvious answer to sometimes be the wrong one, so it is basically a coin-flip. So, would anyone on this forum other than Scott Brown risk £25,000 on a 1p/£50k finish, £50,000 on a 1p/£100k finish, or £125,000 on a 1p/£250k finish? :suspect: And just in case anyone is wondering, I certainly WOULD NOT take any of those on.

£25,000 & £75,000 won today. Still no one going for Q8. Honestly, I think they should just get rid of the Final Drop question. It's really not working. No one will ever risk even £25,000 on that!

£50,000 won today and still no one going for the gamble. The current players do have £125,000 left and they'll be at Q7 tomorrow. If they win that then there is NO WAY they'd gamble all that money.
