Deal or No Deal crowns 7th £250,000 jackpot winner By Tom Eames Wednesday, Feb 12 2014, 17:00 GMT Deal or No Deal crowned its seventh quarter-millionaire today (February 12). Roop Singh became only the second male contestant to take home £250,000 on the Channel 4 game show. The 54-year-old carried on all the way to the end of the game, despite having just £5, £100, £500, £1,000 and the £250,000 jackpot as his last five boxes. An added twist of a 23rd box almost saw the Sikh lay priest take home £500,000. Singh said of his win: "The night before my game my daughter quite innocently said, 'Dad, I want confetti'. When I was offered £46k all I could think of was, 'Dad, I want confetti' and I said, 'No Deal'. "I still cannot fully remember what happened next but I do remember the confetti and everyone hugging and congratulating me." In the first five rounds, the Banker's highest offer was £10,000, and Singh later turned down £46,000. The final two boxes were the jackpot and £500, with host Noel Edmonds revealing that Roop had won the grand prize. He was then offered the chance to select an additional box that could have enabled him to double his winnings, claim an additional £10,000, get his money back, halve his winnings or win nothing. However, his family persuaded him to leave the boxes alone. Edmonds later revealed that he would have doubled his winnings had he bought his chosen box. Since his victory, Singh has bought several presents for his friends and family and a bike for himself. He also plans to donate money to his supported charities.
