    Default Isn't "Deal or No Deal" gambling?

    Why does a game of chance gets aired on TV?

    why do people winning 4d and toto get publicised in the news?

    do you buy 4d? do you buy toto? do you play mahjong? do you go to play slots?

    thou shalt not be the pot, and call the kettle black (and maybe, get a life while you're at it.. the amount of negativity in your life, is amazing )

    wheel of fortune is really, not gambling
    it's all about guessing the correct answer
    (that's why you have a bankrupt slot on the wheel)
    (also why people like to say BIG MONEY! BIG MONEY! when they spin the wheel)

    the trouble is, i think you should be a happier person. don't understand why all your recently started threads all so unhappy. cheer up. life's too short.

    no la even if you dun put moolah into the pot you are still gambling on your luck and some skill. The house has the odds against the player. though they aren't as stringnet as a casino.

    i see these games as a form of additional income as from what i see the players dun really need to use their money to get more money hence its not gambling unless players are told to pay a certain amount upfront before playing. thats just my 2 cents

    I prefer the version that is aired on Australian TV. no models, but the people holding the briefcases get a chance to win $1k AUD if they correctly guess the amount that is inside the briefcase prior to opening it.

    as Begbie says in The Beach.... everybody happy!

    Deal or No Deal is not gambling but it's a stupid programme. It makes Wheel of Fortune look like a game for geniuses. NBC had another out: 1 vs. 100 but I'm not sure why they bother with such things.

    Its probably not gambling because no wager is involved. It is probably also no more gambling than those game shows where you choose squares from a big board to flip over to see what prize you get (common in chinese variety shows).
