Annie's Deal or No Deal Game Report

It’s finally here, after the big build up over the past 10 days, and the 500th show is upon us. A very smart Noel introduces the show today, and we see the crew giving out the gold boxes to the contestants in the background... Everyone is dressed up today, and Noel promises us lots of surprises today... The first of which is that the audience is made up of ex-contestants.

Noel turns to show us the game-board and reveals the next surprise of the day, the top prize is £500,000. He tells us how they are going to pick today's contestant, and they are randomly picking the contestant by using the bag of balls that is used by the contestants to choose their initial boxes. The honour of picking the ball out of the bag falls to Laura who is the only contestant to win the £250,000. Laura picks out ball1, which is Annie’s box, so Annie is the lucky contestant with the chance to win the £500,000.

Annie takes her place at the pound with box 1, and she jokes with Noel that if she knew she was playing today she would have dressed up!! Annie tells us her husband was due to join her tonight, and so misses out on her game. Noel talks about Annie being a big dealer on the wings, and says this could be an interesting game...

The banker calls before the start of the first round, and Noel has a bit of banter with him, and tells him there are a few people in the studio today who have taken quite a bit of money from him, especially one person!! The banker says that if Annie discovers the 1p in the opening round, each active player will receive £500, and also every ex-contestant will receive a bottle of bubbly, EXCEPT Laura who can afford her own!!!

Round 2

As long as we don't find the £50,000 you will get a nice surprise says Noel

Noel says that's OK... The banker says he might have gone a bit too far in using Annie as revenge against the other contestants... To make up for it, if Annie NO DEALS this next offer she will receive an offer after each box... He offers £7,000… Annie says that's better, and Noel says the odds are in her favour now to go on... Annie says NO DEAL

The whole studio loves that decision...

Noel goes over to the west wing and asks them what their predictions are again, Noel says they are all pathetic as they all got it wrong!! The Banker offer is £12,946.20!!

Mac's Deal or No Deal Game Report

Noel tells us he might give us a little snippet of what is happening for the 500th show a little later today. He then singles Joanne out as being on the banker's payroll!! As she has destroyed so many games!! He then hands her a pile of cash that is from the banker!!

A very surprised Mac takes the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 5. Mac is a self-employed smooth talker says Noel!! He then gives his real occupation, which is a bookkeeper. Mac reveals that he has been a heavy gambler in the past, and almost ended up in cardboard city at one point, until his partner helped him pull himself out of it, and he now has turned a corner. Noel says none of this is in his file, and it could make for an interesting battle with the banker.

Round 1
10 - 50p Big cheers
9 - £100,000 Big groans
4 - £50,000
Joanne next, but Noel can't believe he is choosing her!!
15 - £10,000
14 - £250

Mac says that could have been a lot worse, and there are now a lot of blues to hit in the next round.

The banker thinks that Mac is a very worthy opponent for him, and he offers £7,500… Mac says NO DEAL

Round 2

Round 3
6 - 10p
13 - £35,000 Groans for that one, as there is only one power 5 value left
12 - £5,000

Noel says it's rare to get this far into the game with so many blues left, although Manuel did it yesterday!! Noel asks the banker how many contestants are on his payroll! He replies that Joanne, Mark and Maria are all on his payroll! He tells Mac that Maria has the £75,000 today!! He then offers £5,000… Noel says it's a clever offer, and he has to be very careful now... Mac says NO DEAL

Round 4
Mac goes straight to Maria now! And Noel says it's a very clever move
17 - £1 Yes shouts Noel, that was a very clever move, now find the 1p
7 - 1p
We're at a crucial point in the game now says Noel...
20 - £75,000 BIG GROANS

That was totally the opposite of what we wanted says Noel, and tells Mac that he will have to dig deep now and refocus on the £20,000...

Mac chooses 3, 19 and 2 and wants to open them quickly
3 - £5
19 - £15,000
2 - £20,000

It’s time for The Banker with £10 and £100 remaining… That was crippling bad luck Noel tells the banker, who offers £50… Mac says NO DEAL

Eric's Deal or No Deal Game Report

No questions except one today... Did you get a Father's day card asks Noel?

The contestant's have special green boxes today, and we get the chance to win up to £50,000 in the viewer's competition. Noel goes over to the daddy of the group Eric, and asks what the responsibilities of the daddy are, he replies to look after the contestants before and after the shows...

It’s Eric’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and Sophie escorts Eric to the pound table along with Fin and box 1. Fin gets a treat from Eric and Noel asks for his treat! Eric tells Fin "left leg"! Eric tells Noel how he was in the Air Force and flew for many years, until one day he lost one eye due to a disease, and he knew that one day he would lose sight in his other eye, which eventually did happen. Noel shows us a pic of Eric's wedding to Sue, who is in the audience for support today...

Eric asks all the contestants to look under their desks, as there are little presents for them, and they each bring out small cuddly dogs…

Eric explains his system, and Noel says he has lost all the pilgrims with his system!!

Eric's system is based on prime numbers…

18 - £50,000 She has it 4 games in a row!

The banker talks about Joanne and says she is like that old geyser in Yellowstone Park, Old faithful!!! Noel chips in that it's more the name and not down to her appearance!! Eric thinks the offer will be £22,000, but The Banker offers £20,000

Noel says the decision now is how many mind games the banker is going to be playing with the similarities to Adam's game.... Noel talks about Adam's game where he turned down £20,000 at a crucial point in the game, and things turned for the worse. Eric replies that it is an important decision now. Eric says NO DEAL

That was a brave call says Noel
Round 4

The banker thinks that the loss of the £35,000 makes a big difference, and Eric asks how much of a difference the loss of the 1p makes… Noel says you have a problem now... The banker thinks that if Eric has the £250,000 he will go all the way and reveal it, and he offers £27,500

Eric shakes his head, which Noel picks up on, and Eric won't reveal to him why he did it. Noel asks if he wants to ask anyone for advice, he replies that he doesn't, as he doesn't want anyone to be hurt at the end of the game. Eric says he has often thought about being in this situation since being asked on the show, and he is ready for the question... Eric says DEAL

Noel says he is really pleased with that decision...

The Banker offers £12,000… Noel was playing around with Adam and he says its £16,000… He then changes it to £18,000… Adam can't believe this and Noel says no I was joking it is really £20,000

Everyone tells Adam to take this offer really seriously as it's a great offer for the board… Noel tells Adam he is being rewarded for the solid advice he has given while on the wings. Adam's brother tells him this is the make or break decision now, as if he plays on he will probably go all the way now. Eric tells him this is the possible crash and burn round now...

13 - £750

Noel says the banker will still be playing on the 1p and saying that Pippa will have it 2 days in a row! The banker asks Eric what he had yesterday, and he replies the £750 again! The banker reminds Pippa that the £250,000 can be very hypnotic, and he offers £16,500… Pippa goes to Adam for a reasoned opinion, and he replies the problem is the big gap, and taking away either top box will make it a one-box game, but on the reverse if she has the £250,000 in her box then she can go on and win big... Eric tells Pippa to think about what she wants from the game, but if he was in the chair he would carry on...

Sam's Deal or No Deal Game Report

We've just about recovered from Rodney's game yesterday Noel tells us, and he talks about how the players are superstitious where they stand. He introduces us to newbie Mike and wonders if he will have Rodney's luck.

It’s Sam’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and she does so with box 6. Sam has her fiancé in the audience for support, and we get to see a few of her pics of her 2 children and her fiancé. Sam has a dream of getting married and would like to win enough for that dream to come true. Sam has a little box from her Nan with a lucky charm in, her Nan is convinced the banker hangs around the hotel and has told her to be very careful when there and not reveal anything!!

Round 1

Sam has a few tears after that round and her fiancé joins her for support. Noel tells her not to let the game and the banker get to her... He reminds the banker about the bad day he had yesterday. The banker has a pop at Mike and says that when Mike is in a car with his mates, he bets he knows who is driving... A policeman!!! The Banker offers £850… Sam says NO DEAL

Round 2
8 - 50p
Noel gives a big positive speech...
4 - £5,000
3 - 1p

That's better says Sam, that was her biggest fear, the 1p... Noel writes 123 on Sam's hand... The banker is not denying Sam's Nan’s allegation about him working at the hotel!! And he knows which of the contestants are bad tippers!!! He then offers £5,000… That's a huge improvement over the last offer says Noel... Sam says NO DEAL

Sam whispered one more round, which Noel picks up on, and she then says maybe 2 or 3... He warns her to be careful as the banker picks up on things like that...

Round 3
9 - £75,000 Big groans
19 - £10,000
11 - 10p

The banker says he used to go to Saturday cinema and he loved the cliffhangers, he loved it when Flash Gordon would go hurtling towards the edge of the cliff at the end of a show... He says Sam is desperate to get out of the chair now, and offers £2,500… Sam says NO DEAL

Round 4
14 - £50,000 NOOO Damn you goes Sam...
12 - £1
10 - £500 Big cheers

Noel tells Sam she has to think now that Deal or No Deal has a top prize of £35,000... The banker starts some mind games and talks about Sam's children, but she doesn't fall for them... He then offers £3,000… Noel says you might have to start to think of this as a low money day now, and there might not be a lot available, possibly... Sam says NO DEAL

Sam's fiancé joins her at the pound table...
Round 5
15 - £20,000 Oh my word says Noel, and it's now a one-box game...
20 - £100 Big cheers
Sam is drawn to Mac, but she is not sure if he has a big one or a small one Mac says he is just happy he has got one!! That gets a yellow card from Noel!!!
13 - £10

Noel asks Mac where he thinks the banker will go now, and he thinks he will stick... The banker confirms Mac has a big one, if they were talking about brains!! He offers £3,000… Sam would like a sweep... Adam says she should Deal, and the most of the wing agrees... Eric says he would not deal... Sam says NO DEAL

That was a popular decision says Noel, but was it the right one...
Round 6
18 - £3,000
17 - £50 Big cheers
Noel pleads for the £750 now... I think the rest of us are pleading for the £1,000!!!!!
21 - £1,000 BIG CHEERS

It’s time for The Banker with £750 and £35,000 remaining…

Noel tells Sam and her fiancé to think straight now... Noel tells the banker that Sam has made it clear she is going all the way now, but her fiancé seems to want Sam to deal regardless of the offer... The Banker offers £8,000

Noel points out 2 things... Sam was brave to turn down the £3,000, and £8,000 is a big jump from that, and what are the chances of £750 being on the table 2 days in a row...
Sam says NO DEAL

Sam's fiancé is in total shock at her decision.... Sam says she came originally to win the £250,000, and once it went she just thought about going all the way...

The banker calls back and offers the SWAP… Sam says NO SWAP

Noel opens Sam’s box 6 and reveals £750

Box 22 contains the £35,000

Rodney's Deal or No Deal Game Report

We get the warmest welcome from Noel, and are putting the past few games behind us. The long absence of the £250,000 from the pound table is noted by Noel...

It’s Rodney’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he has box 17. He gets a great welcome from the pilgrims. Rodney is the MD of a classic car company, and his wife was due to arrive this evening so has just missed his show! We get to see some pics of Rodney's dogs, which have helped him get over a heart operation by taking him on long walks. Rodney wants lots of noise from the pilgrims today, and he has no system - it will just be Trotter intuition...

He is worried that Rodney could still go all the way, and offers £25,000…Rodney says it's a respectful offer, but the game has still got a bit of mileage... Noel asks the question, but before he can finish the banker calls back... He raises the offer to £27,500.... Noel asks if Rodney would like him to take the phone off the hook! He would, and just as Noel reaches for the phone it rings again!!! The banker says you need to be quicker than that!!!! He has raised the offer again!!! It's now £30,000.... Rodney says NO DEAL

Round 4
4 - 50p Big cheers
Noel and Rodney can't believe the way the game is going...

8 - £500 Big cheers

It's very unusual to get to the 8 box stage in this position says Noel... The banker says the odds on box 17 having the £250,000 are the same as it having the 1p, and while that is there he is still confident... He offers £35,000… Noel says that the banker really wants Rodney out of the crazy chair now... Rodney says NO DEAL

Noel tells everyone to stay positive
21 - £50,000 Groans for that
No worry says Rodney
11 - £15,000

WOW says Noel again... It was a damaging round, but you could still be our first male £250,000 winner. The banker says that Rodney wouldn't have made it this far in life as a car dealer if he didn't know when to make the right deal at the right time.... He offers £35,000… Rodney says that’s more than anyone has had since he's been on the show, but NO DEAL

Round 6
16 - 1p BIG CHEERS and the studio goes wild
18 - £35,000 Groans as the safety net goes...
7 - £5 The studio goes wild

It’s time for The Banker time with £750 and £250,000 remaining… There are shouts of "you've got it Rodney"

Noel says this the time now to calm down and revel in the fact that the banker is having a terrible day... The phone rings and Noel pounces on it!!! He asks if the banker is playing the bongos or is it his heart he can hear!!! The Banker offers £85,000… Eric tells Rodney to picture himself in a casino and would he put £85,000 on to win £250,000.... Rodney says he only has to open a box... Rodney says DEAL

Noel says you WILL ALWAYS get a swap if the £250,000 in play, and asks would you swap... Rodney says he wouldn't swap…

Noel opens Rodney’s box 17 and reveals £750

Box 22 contains the £250,000

Pauline's Deal or No Deal Game Report

A big welcome from Noel to the dream factory, and he runs through last week and how he thought the game was starting to turn good for the contestants. But Paul's game changed that when he had a unique offer from the banker of Paul's dream to play at Old Trafford, but then he turned it down and things went very wrong then.

It’s Pauline’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and she does so with box 19. Pauline has the shakes and is very excited about being on the show. Pauline used to work for a football souvenir company, but she never liked football! We get to see a family pic, and also Pauline's daughter is in the audience for support.

20 - £100,000 Newbie Mark gets groans for that one...

Noel asks if Pauline would like to sprinkle some of her salt over the phone to ward off evil spirits, as the banker one of the most evil people around!! The banker is not happy about the evil tag, until Noel points out that he called himself evil earlier in the year... The Banker offers £500, and Pauline thinks the offer should have been a bit more... Pauline says NO DEAL

He then offers £5,000… Pauline goes to Steve for advice, and he replies that there are 3 higher than the offer and she knows what to do. Adam advises her to play on as well.... Pauline says NO DEAL

Round 4
Pauline wants a quickie... Someone shouts out Come On Noel
14 - £35,000
22 - £15,000
17 - £50,000

A horrible quickie round!!! That was a terrible round says Noel, and he doesn't think anyone will do another quickie round for a while. The banker says that was one his WOW rounds, and he reminds everyone that his ears are everywhere, and he's heard around the hotel that Pauline is one of the warmest people around. He then offers £2,500… The offer receives groans, and Pauline calls her daughter down to the pound table. She tells Pauline that she chose her birthday box, and that contained the £250,000!! Pauline goes to Mac, and he tells her there is only one thing she can do, and that is to be brave and go for it... Pauline says NO DEAL

Round 5
11 - 50p
5 - £75,000 Groans as the highest value goes...
21 - £100

Lets be really positive here says Noel and aim for the £10,000. The Banker offers £1,600… That's a real tester says Noel. Steve gives Pauline a reality check and tells her to think about this offer carefully. Eric tells Pauline she might as well play right to the end now... Pauline says DEAL

Pauline says she is not having the luck today, and it's not going her way and she is not leaving with nothing…

Paul's Deal or No Deal Game Report

Noel talks about the interesting era we are going through at the moment where the contestants have the risk/reward balance perfectly timed. He wonders will we get another balanced player today, or will we get someone with that little bit more courage to take it all the way until the end and if the £250,000 is in play, produce another top prize winner...

It’s Paul’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 17. Paul is a hairdresser from Cheshire and his surname is Broomhead, which Noel finds really amusing! Paul offers the banker an OAP rate for a haircut! He is a big Man Utd fan and hasn't missed a game since he was 7. He is a big risk taker, and did a bungee jump while on holiday.

He told her he would make it to her next wedding, which didn't go down well! The banker says Paul is growing on him after finding out about his sister's wedding!! He offers £12,500… Paul says it's a very good offer, and asks Adam if it's worth playing on… Adam replies yes... Paul says NO DEAL

Round 3
1 - £100,000 OH NO goes Noel...
13 - £1 Newbie Sophie
Must be blue now says Noel
19 - 10p

It's 3-1 at the moment says Paul, and he reveals that 17 is his birthday, so the box means something to him... Noel asks the banker when the last time the £250,000 was brought to the table, and he replies it was Kelsie's game, 64 shows ago... The banker tells Paul to "Get out of the chair!!", and offers Paul the chance to play 90mins of football at Old Trafford - The home of Manchester Utd, with + £7,500 spending money. This offer has really unsettled Paul as he is a massive fan of Man Utd, and this is a dream offer. Paul asks for advice, and Adam replies that is a mental offer, and that offer is a big dream. Noel says he doesn't know what that package would cost and the banker could be getting him cheaply here... After a lot of thought Paul says NO DEAL
