NBC's popular game show, Deal or no Deal, has peaked everyone's curiousity.  Just exactly how does the banker go about determining the dollar value of his offers?  How can a contestant distinguish a "fair" deal from an "unfair" one.  What is the contestant's expected winnings at the commencement of the game and as it progresses?  EXEMPLAR INC. has developed a proprietary spreadsheet software program that answers all of these questions.  Now you can play along with each contestant to calculate their expected winnings and to evaluate the Banker's offers.  Just send us an e-mail entitled FREE DOND OFFER to the following e-mail address: webmail@exemplarinc.ca and we will e-mail you a free copy of the spreadsheet.  You must have Microsoft Excel (or a compatible spreadsheet program) to be able to open and use the spreadsheet.  Simply copy the spreadsheet to your laptop's harddrive, open it and follow the easy-to-follow written instructions.  Now it's easier than ever to play along as the game show is broadcast.

Hosted by Howie Mandel, "Deal or No Deal" is an exhilarating hit game show where contestants play and deal for a top prize of $1 million in a high-energy contest of nerves, instincts and raw intuition.  Each night, the game of odds and chance unfolds when a contestant is confronted with 26 sealed briefcases full of varying amounts of cash - ranging from a measly penny to $1 million. Without knowing the amount in each briefcase, the contestant picks one -- his to keep, if he chooses - until its unsealing at game's end.

The risk element kicks in when the player must then instinctively eliminate the remaining 25 cases - which are opened and the amount of cash inside revealed. The pressure mounts as in each round, after a pre-determined number of cases are opened, the participant is tempted by a mysterious entity known only as "the Banker" to accept an offer of cash in exchange for what might be contained in the contestant's chosen briefcase - prompting Mandel to ask the all-important question - Deal or No Deal?

As each case is opened, the likelihood of the player having a valuable cash amount in his or her own case decreases or increases. Viewers will see if, truly, fortune favours the bold. The contestant knows that as long as the larger cash prizes haven't been opened, the Banker's deals will only get higher. And if the conflicted contestant accidentally opens a case with a bigger cash value - the Banker's offer could suddenly evaporate.

Based on the successful format from Endemol that has aired in over 35 countries, "Deal or No Deal" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.
