And here's your new board...

£1,500.10
50p
£1,501
£10
£1,600
£7,750
£500
£750

£17,500
£20,000
£43,000
£51,500
£75,000

£350,000

A reminder of your Box 23 configuration:

DOUBLE
+£5,000
+£2,500

MONEY BACK
HALF
NOTHING


The Banker would say whether this is more or less generous than usual for a second offer... but he says that would hurt him for multiple games to come, so he won't!

BANKER'S OFFER

£14,000



It's certainly a step up, but it would be after that round... Deal or No Deal?

But it's definitely more or less generous, it's not average generosity? :P
Either way, there's practically half the board above it including that jackpot. NO DEAL, we'll open 19, 7, and 5 next.

The Banker says he's not saying! ;)

Box 19 - £43,000! It got a bump up, and it was chunky to begin with... but it's not disastrous on its own.

Box 7 - £350,000! ...unlike that one.

Box 5 - 50p! Well, erm, you're guaranteed £10 in your box?

Aww.
That jackpot's gonna start giving the banker a bad time if it stays unclaimed much longer, it's only a few more games until it starts regularly bumping up the board!

Unsurprisingly, this is your lowest offer so far.

BANKER'S OFFER

£9,252 AND NO 23



But it would still be more than you've won in your previous two games combined! With that in mind... Deal or No Deal?

Hah!
On the plus side, there's only three "true blues" left, and there's a fair bit of stability at the smile money level as well as four above the offer. I think I'm confident in saying NO DEAL to this, it's going to be pretty hard for this game to seriously crash (and even if it does, this 23 is geared towards bailing that out).
Let's open 2, 6, and 20, and see where that takes us.

On to 8-box we go, hopefully with a good round this time after the devastation the last one provided!

Box 2 - £75,000! Oh.

Box 6 - £7,750 isn't so disposable now...

Box 20 - £17,500! Good grief.

The Banker must love playing you.

£1,500.10
£1,501
£10
£1,600
£500
£750

£20,000
£51,500


You can get out of this honourably yet... sadly, this offer would increase your average win in this series if you avoided a negative Box 23 outcome.

BANKER'S OFFER

£5,500



Or, if you want to at least lock in smile money, what about this?

BANKER'S OFFER

£1,500 + £3,750 ON 23



That could theoretically become five figures, even... your call on both offers. Deal or No Deal?

I'd definitely Deal here if the lowest 6 amounts were replaced with 5 low blues and £5,000, but as is?

I think I'd just about go another round here.

;_;
I may need to avoid both the top two to get a significantly better offer, but as long as I can keep at least the larger one I think I'll be alright. That along with 23 suggests there's enough leverage here to chase another round...
Hopefully I don't regret this. NO DEAL, with boxes 16, 12, and 1 to open.

When a player questions turning down a four-figure offer, you know it's not the best of games... but when a player questions turning down any offer, you know there's some tension thrown in.

So let's spoiler-box this round.

Box 16 -
£1,600 is safe! It's the biggest safe amount, it's part of the worst possible round, but it's still safe!


Box 12 -
£1,500.10! And so is that! We're at least guaranteed to have something to play for at 5-box...


Box 1 -
£20,000! And it will be a thing, singular. But it's the bigger of the reds!

This is your 5-box.

£1,501
£10
£500
£750

£51,500

This is your pair of offers on it.

BANKER'S OFFER

£6,500 AND NO 23


OR

BANKER'S OFFER

55" LG OLED TV + £4,500 ON 23



The TV comes up again! You can take that plus a 23 stake, or you can take a no-23 offer, or you can play on... Deal or No Deal?

...Alright, yeah, given the current state of affairs that offer's too generous to turn down. The question is simply which one to take...
And I think the TV sounds nice, plus I spent the whole game talking about 23 so it'd be strange to push it aside now. DEAL 55" LG OLED TV + £4,500 ON 23!

For the proveout I'll open 4, 15, and 14, leaving 21 to the end.

That £6,500 offer would be causing an ACB-shaped hole in the wall, followed almost immediately by KP, JDGA and H2005, I presume :-D

EDIT: Or the TV offer. I forgot that some people actually still have use for a new TV. :P

Well, apparently Leah found a different wall to run through. ;)

The TV is safe, £4,500 is going through Box 23, this could still be Leah's biggest win ever in this series! (This is not saying nearly enough.)

Box 4 - £51,500!! Well, one thing is for sure: you were right not to play on. :)

Box 15 - £500, whatever.

Box 14 - £10 for a hilariously anticlimactic £750 / £1,501 finish.

BANKER'S OFFER
WOULD'VE BEEN

£2,251.01 AND NO 23



That would have been enough to not be your lowest ever win!

Box 8 had £1,501, Box 21 the £750, and now for the important bit!

So, the TV is safe. This is to decide how much money you're getting with it. Hopefully not zero.

DOUBLE (£9,000)
+£5,000 (£9,500)
+£2,500 (£7,000)

MONEY BACK (£4,500)
HALF (£2,250)
NOTHING


If this is one of the red options, it's your best result so far in Series 3. If it's Nothing, it's your worst. No pressure...

Geeze...
Option 4, I suppose!
One of these days I'll get some half-decent luck in your series.

Not much you could do with that game except play the odds and hope they fell in your favor. Thankfully Leah played the right odds in the end and managed to squeezed a high 4 figure win out of the game. :smt023
