Noel wonders if we can get 3 in row today, and get another game where the maximum is gained out of the game...
It’s Mike’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 9. Mike is from Cheshire and reveals that he is a nightmare to live with, as he likes to listen to very loud music! It's mainly heavy metal music, and Noel asks him to tell him a few of the bands, Noel claims to know them all well!! Mike has arranged a festival in the past, and Noel says with his street cred he could help Mike pull off another successful one... Mike reveals his very, very clever system, and it is that he has no system!!
1 - £750
15 - £10
6 - £15,000 Newbie Steve
3 - £75,000 Groans for one of the power 5
22 - £35,000 Arrgghhh goes Noel
The round started with so much promise says Noel... The banker says he doesn't know how to pitch any offer at Mike, as he doesn't know the cost of goat's blood!! He says it would be too obvious to give Mike the number of the beast, so he's giving him it's neighbour!!! He offers £6,667… Mike says NO DEAL
16 - £50
14 - £3,000
Noel asks as about Mike's band, and Mike turns to him and says Scumface - which Noel takes offence to!! Mike reveals that his band has 2 members, but is really a trio as the bass player is a cardboard cutout!
8 - £5,000
Noel asks the banker if he is enjoying the game, and he tells Noel that he was in a folk band, and he played the loot!!! He then offers £10,000… Mike says that's ten grand that I could take away with me right now, and it's a lot of money... Noel asks if Mike is going to be the first person ever to walk at the second offer? Mike says the game could easily go either way here.... Mike says NO DEAL
Mike says the audience is very good looking, but the centre is more lively than the edges, and Noel retorts it's a bit like your hair!!!!!
11 - £50,000 Groans for that one
17 - £20,000 The safety net is gone now says Noel
4 - 10p
Noel tells Mike that he will be punished now for that round, and he can't work out how much of a gambler he is. Mike tells him he has never really gambled in the real world, so he doesn't know either. The banker says this offer will require courage now... He offers £11,000…
Mike says that is good considering the last round, and it's a lot of money, certainly more than he's ever had... Mike gets advice that the money on offer is real money that he can walk away with now. There is more advice that it is certainly a gambling board, but also a good round now would see a nice increase in the offer... Mike is taking his time over this decision.... Mike says NO DEAL
… Mike says he can't believe he just said that...
5 - 50p Big cheers
18 - 1p More cheers
Mike tells everyone to go quiet for Norman's 1p trumpet…
Noel builds up the drama for the last box of the round...
19 - £1
The studio goes wild for the all blue round… Noel says you've never had £11,000, so by that logic you've never had £16,000, or £18,000, or £20,000 or £21,000, and how about £26,000! The banker’s offer is £26,000… Lynn tells Mike that the banker is scared now, hence the offer... Norman tells Mike that this is the Dream factory and he now has the chance to make his dreams come true.... Jon tells him that if he keeps the top 2 in play for another round, he could potentially double that offer... Noel asks him what are the odds of keeping either one of the top 2 in play... Mike says he doesn't want to be trapped with just either of the top 2 remaining... Brian says he has come this far, and he would go all the way... Mike says DEAL
Round 5 - Proveout round
7 - £1,000 That would have been wonderful says Noel
13 - £500 NO, NO says Noel
2 - £5 Perfection says Noel
Noel says that £26,000 has worked a treat for the banker yet again... The banker says tough luck Scumface!!! He would have offered £46,000…
Round 6 - Proveout round
12 - £250,000 Huge relief around the studio
10 - £100,000 Excellent says Noel and imagine how you would be feeling if you were still in the game!!
21 - £100
It’s time for The Banker with £250 and £10,000 remaining, and he would have offered £2,600…
Noel opens Mike’s box 9 and reveals £250
Box 20 contains the £10,000
Noel reveals that next week is the final week before the summer break...
