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.

Another Strategy

It is clear from the shows and Tan's photos, that the contestants are one big happy family during their time with DOND.

Now what I am about to suugest may not be very entertaining to watch (I am not sure) but why don't they agree to pool their winnings together? The probability of the £250,000 coming up is 1 in 22, but has not yet been won despite us watching game 160. However if they all agreed to share their winnings - something like 22 games after you play, you take a 22nd of the cash pool - and all contestants agree to go to the end - then the big one should come up regularly and they should each win something close to £25,000.

If, and perish the thought, DOND comes to an end, then after the last show, winnings should be shared out amongst 44 (as opposed to 22).

Just a thought ;-)

It's interesting to note that if you follow the law of averages exactly, each person can indeed win around £25,000 as you said.

The current average win is around the £16k - 17k mark (it was 17k at show 100, and show 150, it's currently just over 16k) so your suggested strategy would benefit everyone.

I guess in a way there's also proof that 16/25 people deal at the wrong time.
