Welcome to donduk. A refuge for those who enjoy Deal or No Deal, the hit Channel 4 gameshow hosted by Noel Edmonds. The award winning gameshow Deal or No Deal has become a big hit for Channel 4 and marks a sensational return to our screens of Noel Edmonds.

Deal or No Deal is enjoyed my millions of viewers daily, where the contestants battle with The Banker to try and win a jackpot of £250,000. Here at donduk you will find full daily reports of each show, as well Deal or No Deal news and specials. Deal or No Deal although initially appearing very simple in format of just opening a few boxes for the chance to win some big money prizes, actually has some potentially complex decisions to be made at points throughout the show, the contestants occasionally try complex or simple gameplay in an attempt to give them an edge in beating the Banker.

The banker will always make an offer which is less than the optimum value left on the board, so in theory at least, you should always reject the banker's offer. But the banker's calculation is based on the probability that events will happen, so for example if there are two red amounts and three blue, then the bankers offer must take the reds into account even though they could be removed during the next round, because the likelihood of both reds being taken out is only 30%. But the individual only has one shot at the goal, so the fact that if they were in that position five times they would only lose once is of no importance - this occasion is all that matters.

So the player should not adopt the same strategy as the banker; taking the above into account, the player should really 'deal' everytime there are only three offers above the banker's offer. But then there is the human factor...
