LAST CHANCE GAME FOR 'DEAL OR NO DEAL'S' MILLION DOLLAR MISSION THIS MONDAY FEBRUARY 25

ENTIRE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOARD IS FILLED WITH 13 ONE-MILLION-DOLLAR CASES AS NBC'S SMASH HIT CONCLUDES ITS MILLION DOLLAR MISSION WITH A 50/50 CHANCE TO PICK THE MILLION

The Banker Tempts Fate As California Couple Is Given The Last Chance To Win A Million In The Mission

BURBANK, Calif. � February 21, 2008 � The Banker tempts Fate one last time with another 13 one-million-dollar case game. Will it take two to defeat the Banker and to finally win the elusive million dollar top prize? Does young married couple Nate and Sarah Harrison of Pasadena, California have the beginners' lucky touch? Once more, the Million Dollar Mission reaches a thirteen case high when half the board is revealed to have thirteen one-million-dollar briefcases, giving the Harrisons a 50% chance of choosing a case with a million dollars, but will they have the fortitude to go all the way? Find out on Monday, February 25 (8-9 p.m. ET), in the last Million Dollar Mission episode.

When Nate and Sarah Harrison arrived at "Deal or No Deal," they were surprised to learn that not only were they chosen to play in the Million Dollar Mission game, but half the board is filled with $1 million cases! The Banker, ready to test their new nuptials when they face-off for the million dollars, is confident he can still beat the odds.

"Are you kidding me?" said the Banker. " Face it America. You can't beat me. A lemur would have a better chance of winning the million."

Determined to give away the top prize, the Million Dollar Mission first started on September 26, 2007. For every contestant who did not win the top prize of $1 million, an additional $1 million briefcase was added to the board. Last fall, over the course of three weeks, the Million Dollar Mission went up to a total of eight $1 million cases, but no one took home the big money. Determined to find that first-ever million-dollar winner, the Million Dollar Mission returned on January 2, 2008, starting with two $1 million cases on the board. Over the past several weeks, with no one winning the top prize, it's now up to thirteen $1 million cases on the board.

"Deal or No Deal" premiered on December 15, 2005. In the history of the show, out of 199 contestants in 149 episodes, only 12 have held the million dollars in their case, but have been unable to go the distance for the top prize. The highest amount that was taken home in a game where the top prize was $1 million was $471,000.

Based on the successful format from Endemol that has aired in over 40 countries, "Deal or No Deal" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.
