How Does ‘Deal or No Deal Island’ Work?

The rules for Deal or No Deal Island are different than the original series. NBC revealed the concept of the new show in a press release.

In ‘Deal or No Deal Island,’ the iconic briefcases are hidden around the island and worth over $200 million in prize money split between them. In each episode, players compete in daring challenges to secure the briefcases that will be used in that night’s game of ‘Deal or No Deal.’ The player who snags the highest-value case gains immunity and gets to choose a fellow player to enter ‘The Temple.’ ”

“The chosen competitor must then play a high-stakes game of ‘Deal or No Deal.’ If the player makes a bad deal and accepts an offer that is a lesser value than what is in their chosen case, they are immediately eliminated. If the player makes a good deal and accepts an offer that is a higher value than what is in their case, the power is in their hands and they get to select who to eliminate. “

“The winnings from each game of ‘Deal or No Deal’ will be added to a group pot that will grow to an exponential value throughout the season. At the end of the season, the last player standing will face the Banker to potentially win the biggest prize in ‘Deal or No Deal’ history.”
