Deal or No Deal is it Gambling or Luck?

Every now and then a TV show comes along that blows all of its rivals into the water. The show was very innovative as it was one of the first that did not involve answering questions. The aim of the game is to open boxes until you whittle them down to the last two. Through the show the banker will call and try and convince you to give up your box for money, a lot of people end up giving in and decide to deal, but when the game finished it emerges that they of in fact won a much bigger sum.

Don't get me wrong some people deal at exactly the right down and end up beating the banker as they like to phrase it. But you have to ask yourself the question whether the show is purely about luck or the ability to be a gambler?

Well the answer in my opinion is both, Deal or No Deal is more like playing roulette than online poker, the reason for saying this is because roulette is a probability game exactly like Deal or No Deal. The chance comes in when you are selecting the boxes, if you choose the wrong boxes then you are going to end up getting low offers, but the thing about it is that if you have brought a high figure box to the table, then whatever happens you are going to end up getting an enourmous offer at the final moments.

The moment that the gambling skill kicks in is when you have to start turning down big sums to win even bigger, clever gamblers should be able to judge probabilities and be able to deal or no deal at exactly the correct time.
