Welcome back to Las Vegas Deal! It's now time for Part 2 of our show.

Ben, in Part 1, you won $58,000 in cash, and since this Vegas, it's now time to play a card game.

Welcome to the Money Cards. If you've ever seen Card Sharks (U.S.) or Play Your Cards Right (UK), then you've seen this before. But for those who haven't, here is an explanation.

We're going to take the money you won in Part 1, and divide it up on our Money Cards board like this:

BIG
BET
$

$29K $ $ $

$29K $ $ $

On the first level, you'll start with $29,000 and a base card, and you'll bet all or a portion of that amount on whether the next card is higher or lower. When you get up to the second level, you'll get the other $29,000, and you'll continue to bet higher or lower. The minimum bet is $500 until you get up to the top level, the Big Bet, where you must bet at least half of your money. Also, you are permitted to change one card per level by calling for one of three pre-dealt spare cards (1-3).

We play the game with a standard deck of 54 playing cards - 52 + two Jokers - and if at any time an identical card comes up, it's a push - no win or no loss.

Now, for making it this far, you've earned a free Joker card. You'll use this to help you win a new car later on. If you find the other Joker along the way, you'll increase your chances of winning that car.

If you play your cards right, you could walk out of here with over $4 million!

Best of luck to you, Ben. Let's start you off with $29,000 and see your first card.

BIG
BET
$

$29K $ $ $

J♠ $ $ $

Spare Cards: 1 2 3

A Jack of Spades. Would you like to keep that card or change it?

The majority of players on Card Sharks didn't realize that changing a Jack is actually a good move, as you have a 6 in 13 chance of getting a better as opposed to the 5 in 13 chance of getting a worse card. With that being said, I'll CHANGE IT.

I'll give you my conditional 1st wager in advance:
8 - $500
7 or 9- $2,000
6 or 10- $4,000
5 or Jack- $10,000
4 or Queen- $15,000
3 or King- $24,000
2 or Ace- $29,000 (D'OH! )

I've personally never heard of that theory before, but now that you've explained it in full, it makes sense.

Which spare card, 1, 2 or 3, would you like to use to change the Jack?

Wait a minute, I just realized I'm allowed to change any card on the level and not just the base card. With that in mind, I'll KEEP the Jack and wager $10,000 that the next card is LOWER.

So after that statistics lesson, you're keeping the Jack? All right. It's your call, bud. Remember, you can only change one card per level using one of the three spares.

$10,000 lower than a Jack...

BIG
BET
$

$29K $ $ $

J♠ 2♣ $ $

It's a Deuce! A great card :D!

Bank: $39,000

Wow, that's a shocker, even for you :shock:. But as always, it's your call.

For $78,000 or nothing at all, is it higher than a Deuce?

It is :D! You've got 78 grand, and a middle-of-the-road card. What are you going to do?

With your kind of luck, it could very well happen!

To get you into six figures, is it higher than a Deuce?

BIG
BET
$

K♣ $ $ $

J♠ 2♣ 2♠ K♣

It's a King :D! You now have $156,000, and a great base card for level 2.

We're also going to add the remaining $29,000 from your original winnings to your total, which now stands at an impressive $185,000!

What are you going to do now?

Bank: $185,000

If it was a 3, I would've been VERY tempted to bet it all. :shock:

As is, however, I'm going to leave a good amount in reserve and bet $130,000 higher, please.

Just wanted to make sure I read that bet correctly. $130,000 higher than a King?

As a statistics expert, even you should know that betting higher on a face card is going against the odds. How come the guy who's awful at math has to tell you that :P?

Anyway, if this next card is in fact lower, you'll have over $300,000. This is a huge bet, no matter how you slice it, and we're not even up to level 3 yet.

$130,000 lower than a King?

BIG
BET
$

K♣ 7♠ $ $

J♠ 2♣ 2♠ K♣

YES :D! Look at that total, folks! But now, you've got a decision to make, Ben. Keep the 7, or change it?

Bank: $315,000
Spare Cards: 2 3

This is an easy one. The house minimum of $500 lower, please.

I'm NOT risking anything more than what I have to on a 50/50 coin-flip.
