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 Student Speaks III:- Best Game Ever!!

Quite possibly one of the best games so far, Morris had us all believing at the end there.

I wonder if i was the only one who was convinced, as Noel took the seal off of box 16, that we had finally arrived at the big one.

So, twice now then, we have had the player take the big final No Deal and go for the jackpot, only to be denied. Morris' game was especially painful, as he was so convinced. Even I, who am always complaining on here that people deal too early, would have seriously considered £101,000, but there is always the temptation there, which got the better of Morris.

Having said that, it was great to see someone play "my kind of game" and end up with a decent amount of money. Before this, the people who had gone all-or-nothing had usually ended up with nothing.

And so, yet again, we have to ask, "Where will the £250,000 come from." It requires the right mentality from the player, the right amount in the box, and (of course) the banker making rubbish offers. These things, have so far only happened once, and it was the extraordinary game on Tuesday, with Gaz proving that the big money was winable. His poor start kept the offers low, and so kept him in the game. And he had absolutely The Right Stuff (see my earlier post), which was to play and play until the very last box.

All in all, quite a week, the first time in the shows history (I believe) that we've had two potential 6-figure winners in the same week. And now I wonder how long we will have to endure £5,000-£10,000 games until the next big one comes along.....
