Playing with honesty, I have no idea. I'm torn between "this is the DREAM, get to three-box and use it when it's your last chance" and "use it now and bail out you moron it doesn't get any better than this with the hundred still floating around", and without the actual pressure of having to make a decision I don't think I can really pick one way or the other. :P

And heh, fair enough Ben. I'm used to 26-box where it'd be one case at a time by default at this stage, so it's hard for me to really see the button as anything more than a normal offer. The Australian version never got quite so psychological in its bank offers except in really extreme events...

(If you really need an answer StatsMan, I'd probably talk myself out of thinking it's really the dream since I don't have the £100k or £75k, and I'd hit the button now)

Ok... By default of being unsure, we'll say you didn't press it there then! :lol:

-Box 14-
£50,000

You would've had to play the button at this point though, and the banker would've stuck!

BANKER'S OFFER
WOULD'VE BEEN

£62,000



-Box 21-
£250,000!

Stunning!

£100 and £35,000 remaining...

BANKER'S OFFER
WOULD'VE BEEN

£10,000



Would you have swapped or stuck with box 6...?

Hah, there we go! Given the hypothetical swap, I would have jumped to 20 in the end.

Ok...!

Box 20 contained...

£35,000

Your original box 6 had £100!

Now time for BOX 23! Here's are today's possible outcomes:

£186,000
£124,000
£31,000
£15,500
NOTHING

Randomised at 4:23pm.

So, Box 23... Deal or No Deal! (A number 1-5 if you ND)

Now then, Box 23... This version of it is downright sadistic, really. The mean says that on average I could expect to gain £9,300, but that's meaningless with a single trial and the median says I've got a 60% chance of getting my money cut in half or worse. If I hadn't won as big as I have I'd probably go for it, but the chance of ruining what I've worked hard for is too great, IMO. I'm keeping my deal, thankyou and good game!

Heh, so it goes. A more than respectable result in the end, I have to say, thanks for hosting!
