Deal or No Deal is a very unique type of game show television. The object of the gameshow, Deal or No Deal, is to win the most amount of money you can by picking a case out of a possible 26 cases, the case you pick being your tool to make money, and eliminate The Other
25 cases to determine the amount of money that is not in your case. Everytime you eliminate cases, the banker will offer you an amount of money and you choose to either take the banker's deal or you choose to play on and try and win more money.
There are three important characters in this television show. The contestant is the person trying to win as much money as they can, the banker is the person who tries to make a deal with the contestant, and Howie is the host of Deal or No Deal for the United States version. There are in fact several different versions of Deal or No Deal that are played all around the world.
