Deal or No Deal (Hong Kong)

The Chinese Version Deal or No Deal is broadcast in Hong Kong by TVB. It has been casting through its website and its magazine, and premiered on October 29, 2006 at 9:30pm. The first season of the show was hosted by Michael Hui, but was since then hosted by Alfred Cheung. It airs on the TVB Jade channel. The grand prize is HK$3,000,000 (about US$384,615), and the lowest is HK$1 (about US$0.13).

The name of Deal or No Deal in Chinese is 一擲千金, a 4-character phrase literally translated as 'Stake a thousand pieces of gold in one throw' (一 = one, 擲 = throw/cast, 千 = thousand, 金 = gold). Metaphorically, this can mean "Throw away money like dirt" or "Spend money like water". At the same time, 擲 has the same pronunciation of 擇, which means to choose, so there is another implication meaning of "to make a decision which related to thousands of money".

The set is identical to the US version, but the show uses the Miljoenenjacht theme tune and the sound effects are from Deal Ya No Deal.
