If you've seen the game show Deal or No Deal hosted by Noel Edmonds
you are bound to enjoy the online game from Ladbrokes
It's very closely based on the TV show, where you make your own deal
decisions in a battle of wits against the mysterious banker. You'll have
the chance to win real cash or just play for fun.
For a more advanced version of the game, see Deal or No Deal Jackpot Game.
If you choose to play Deal or No Deal in demo mode you'll receive a virtual
bank of £500. If playing for real, you'll see the balance of your
You can stake as little as 50p or as much as £1,000 per game.
Enter the stake amount you feel happy to risk on the game. This will determine
the amounts that appear within each of the 26 boxes. The higher your stake
the more you can win.
The smallest amount you win will be 1/50th of the stake amount, while
the top amount is 10 times your stake (e.g. £10 stakes gives a top
amount of £100, £50 gives £500).
Once you've entered your stake amount and clicked play, you select the
box to keep that you hope will contain the top money amount.
You select the remaining boxes to open and reveal their contents. As
with the Deal or No Deal game show you want to uncover the lower (blue)
amounts and avoid the larger (red) amounts.
After you've opened the first 6 of the remaining boxes, the banker will
phone through with his offer.
The size of the offer will depend upon the values that you have uncovered
up to that point. You'll see from our example we'd uncovered 5 of the
blue boxes and just 1 of the red amounts. The bankers offer came in at
£11.78, which would have been a profit of £1.78 on our stake.
At this point you need to chose whether to Deal or No Deal. You could
take the profit (Deal) or continue (No Deal) in the hope of an increased
amount later on.
In our example we decided to continue with the game and selected "No
After opening 5 more boxes the banker gave his next offer. Despite uncovering
3 red boxes and 2 blue's the banker increased his offer to £13.33
Another 5 boxes opened and the top amount has gone. At this point it
looks like we should have dealt earlier and the banker's offer has now
dropped to £7.54 (a loss of £2.46).
At this point we could have cut our losses or continued in the hope of
still getting 1 of the higher amounts.
At this stage 4 more boxes are removed before the banker gives his next
offer. We lost the top amount, but also a couple of blues and the lowest
of the reds. The banker raised his offer slightly to £7.96 (loss
of £2.04), but 4 of the 6 remaining boxes are higher than that amount,
so we decided to continue.
4 more boxes revealed and it couldn't have gone any better, with the
4 lowest remaining amounts eliminated. The banker's final offer was £13.50
(profit of £3.50). We were guaranteed a nice profit whatever was
in the box.
Our box was opened to reveal £14.00, which had we been playing
for real would have produced a nice profit of £4.00.
The game is great fun. If you fancy having a go, see Deal Or No Deal at bet365 Games or Ladbrokes
