Brilliant game today. Personally, I'd have dealt £33k but at around 50% of the mean and with a 3 red/2 blue configuration, there was certainly justification for a no-deal.

Unlike the last £250k/blue finish in live play, there was no chance that Caine was going to gamble today.

Wow. What a game. Absolutely brilliantly played. I can only imagine the devastation if Caine had opted to go to Sonia instead of Monique.

I thought he was going to win quarter-mill. Don't ask me why, I just had a gut feeling halfway through the game that we were going to see something special, and I instantly assumed £250,000 winner. My gut feeling was wrong in that sense, but it was still something special. Game of the year so far? Or am I missing something else that was memorable? When did Justin win £75K, that was this year correct?

Games like that remind us why we love the show so much and why it continues to maintain its core audience after nearly 4 and a half years on air - just a fantastic game, edge-of-the-seat stuff throughout the last part, and I was really starting to convince myself he was going to be the 1st male quarter-millionaire, and even though that didn't materialise, it was a stonking win nonetheless! :lol:

STILL the biggie doesn't come to the table, and I imagine if he'd picked the other box with Sonia that he would've turned down the equivalent % of mean to what he got on the £5/£50k finish, (especially as he just rejected £33,000) and then of course it would've been a disaster, so a huge swing on the last box, but thankfully it went in his favour!

Justin's game was February 9th this year.

Have to agree that was a fantastic game.

Brilliantly pitched final offer from the Banker, too good to turn down given Caine had a 50% chance of taking home a blue. Even if the big red had been in his box I don't think many people would have begrudged him not taking the gamble.

I think both Caine and the Banker played a blinder there, Caine was lucky enough to have a strong board throughout the game, and smart enough to know when to quit. Biggest win in what feels like an absolute age

Well done Caine, very brave no deal at 5 box, much needed win for a Sunday game! :)

Amazingly, even £72,000 doesn't qualify for the Top 20 all time wins anymore!

Of all the games to miss. :evil: It sounds like it was the best game in ages, even better than Justin's 75k win...

Well done Caine!

Was it just me or did anyone else get the feeling that the enormity of the gameplay going into the last few boxes didn't seem to be recognized in the Dream Factory? The only reason I'm saying it is because everybody seemed more calm than I thought they would...normally when the £250k is still in live play at 2-box, there's massive cheers etc...

Anyway, that was an incredible game. I was on the edge of my seat for some of it.

I noticed that too - the atmosphere seemed rather subdued even though the end part of Caine's game was amazing. I guess Caine's laid back attitude had a calming effect on everyone.
