Does Deal or No Deal Reek of Luck or Skill?

Sep 1, 2008
If you have been watching television lately you will have seen the new show Deal or No Deal, infact it has been released globally and into fast food chain toys and board games. In gambling you mainly need to have a lot of skill, with games such as poker you will have to know when to call the bluff. But does the game of deal or no deal really need skill or is it just purely down to luck? Let's take a look and see what it's all down too.

Well firstly the base of the game is as follows, you pick yourself a box and then you must carefully unravel the other 22 boxes trying to eliminate the lowest amounts first. Although this may sound easy, it does tend to get very tricky when you start to advance into the game. While you are playing you will at certain intervals get calls from the banker, who tries to offer you a deal so that you can end the game. He will specifically offer you an amount that is in the middle of your highest and lowest prices. So say for example you have a box with ten thousand pounds and a box with one thousand, the banker would probably offer you around four thousand. I believe this is where the precise skill of the game actually comes into effect, because although it's a gambling form, you have to be wise to use your techniques so that you know when to accept the bankers offer and you know when to ultimately decline it.

Too many people get over excited about the fact that they have still got a high lump sum left in one box and decide to keep on playing and playing and eventually walk away without anything. With people that do not want to accept the bankers funds comes luck, I say this because this type of person will play until the end and probably choose there briefcase, so it totally comes down to which box you chose in the initial stage and that has nothing to do with skill unless of course you are superman and can see through boxes!

Deal or no deal is ultimately a game of both luck and skill. Picking which briefcase to open is a matter of luck there is no way in which someone can predict which amount they will pick, but determining if the banker's offer is a good one requires some level of skill if the contestant is to have the best chance of winning a big payout in Deal or No Deal.
