Deal Or No Deal (Australian Game Show)

Deal or No Deal (also known as The Deal) is an Australian game show airing on the Seven Network and in New Zealand on Prime (though New Zealand launched its own version for TV3 in June 2007). It was the first international version of the game show, after the original Dutch version. It was the first of the versions to use the Deal or No Deal name. The show is recorded at the studio facilities of Global Television located in the Melbourne suburb of Southbank. The current top prize of $200,000 has been won by four contestants.

Many changes have been made to Deal or No Deal. These included changing from a weekly format to a daily format; interactive features inviting home viewers to play along with "Double Deal Friday"; and additional special features added to the game (such as "Double or Nothing" and "Supercase"). The show has included many special episodes including several hour-long prime-time specials (such as the Psychics Special and the Unluckiest Players) and the successful Dancing with the Deals which occurs in conjunction with Dancing with the Stars. New episodes of Deal or No Deal are currently airing 5.30pm weeknights, repeats have aired on weekday mornings on 7Two and early morning on 7mate.

The program celebrated its 1,000th episode on 8 September 2008; that day's contestant won $43,000.

The narrator that introduced the show between 2006-2011 was Marcus Irvine, notable for being the voice of past game show The Weakest Link. In 2012, Irvine was replaced by John Deeks as narrator.
