    How do you conjure up the cards? Is it by RNG, or do you have a pack of cards out and just randomly pick a card?

    (I'm willing to give Curious a few more hours, but after that a strike will be given.)

    Sorry, missed the update. I'll go Rotunda since I've heard that word before.

    And that would be right.

    Alright, the odds are against you right now, but you still might pull through. If this next card is a two, three or four, you'll go to the Gambit Board (along with the 21 Pot if it's a four). If it's an ace, we play on. If it's anything else, we'll go to a tiebreaker round. Candace, can we please see the card?













    (pause for dramatic effect)





















    Candace: IT'S A FOUR!



    Unbelievable!

    (clangs, win cue as the audience applauds and cheers)


    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [-CHAMP-][FREEZE-]
    [--21---][--18---]
    [$13,800][---$200]
    Curious, we'll talk in a second. Armando, we can't say you didn't try, that certainly was a good effort. We'll bump your $200 up to the house minimum of $1,000...

    Code:
    [CURIOUS][ARMANDO]
    [-CHAMP-][-------]
    [-------][-------]
    [$13,800][-$1,000]
    ...and we've got a few nice parting gifts waiting for you backstage. I have just one more question for you; did you enjoy playing the game?

    No. All the questions in normal time were just blah and he didn't answer like any questions whatsoever. Like in total 3 questions he answered throughout both rounds, he was lucky and if he answered any questions before me then I would've had a chance.

    ...Well, at least you're honest. That's just the way the game goes sometimes. All the best to you, give it up for Armando Payne, everyone!

    (applause)

    Judging by how fast that went, we may just have time for an audience game at the end. First, though, we'll take a quick break before Curious tries to Beat the Dealer for potentially $1,000,000. Stay with us, you won't want to miss it!


    (insert closed captioning plug here, fade to commercials)


    -----------------

    (commercials)


    (fade up, applause)

    And welcome back to Gambit, I'm here with our inaugural champ, CuriousHeartless. So far today he's won $13,800 in cash. Are you ready to possibly win more?

    Yep. Now it is time to prove that I can do something other than benefit off of others' falters.

    Well, then, you said it, let's go to the board!

    (applause as the Gambit Board opens up, revealing 21 screens)

    Alright, during that last break, the S&P folks delivered Candace a new set of 52 giant playing cards that were previously cut, shuffled, and sealed. Candace is going to break that seal now and take out two cards to represent the dealer. We'll show you the first one, and we'll find out the second later. Candace, let's see the first card...




    Eesh... it's a jack.


    (groans from audience)


    DEALER: 10

    We'll find out the other card later. For now, turn your attention to the Gambit Board.


    Code:
    [01][02][03][04][05][06][07]
    [08][09][10][11][12][13][14]
    [15][16][17][18][19][20][21]
    21 individual monitors are on that board. Some of them have great prizes. Others have cash. There's even a couple special spaces that I'll explain as they come up. In addition, there's an instant win space, but there's also a BUST space, avoid that if you can. Every time we reveal a prize or cash, Candace will deal a card out of the deck for you. You'll choose whether you want to keep that card or use a power chip, I'll explain those in a second. If at any point you feel like you might go over 21 on the next card, you can FREEZE at any time. Once you freeze, Candace will reveal her face-down card. If her cards do not add up to at least 17, she'll deal additional cards until she either hits 17 and up or busts.

    If the dealer beats you, or you BUST, you lose everything you've accumulated in the bonus game. If you hit 21, find the instant win space, beat the dealer by having a better hand, or cause the dealer to bust, you win whatever you've accumulated in the bonus round along with some cash.

    If you beat the dealer in any normal way, such as causing her to bust, or hitting 21 with three cards or more, you win the prizes you've won plus $25,000. If you get a blackjack, whether it's in a normal way (Ace plus 10 or face card), or by hitting the instant-win with only an ace, 10, or face card, you'll win the Blackjack Bonus, which we'll start at $100,000!

    BLACKJACK BONUS
    $100,000


    However... if you have the fortune to find the instant-win on your first pick, you will win $1,000,000.

    (AUDIENCE CHEERS)

    $1,000,000

    And now we get to the power chips. If you don't like a card that turns up, you can use one of the chips to switch it out for another card, which might be better or worse. You get 2 to start for winning 2 rounds. We'll give you 2 more for having won both of the main game jackpots, that's 4 Power Chips!


    Well, that's everything you need to know, whenever you're ready, pick your first number off the board.

    This is an important pick, Curious. Let's see it...














    (the screen digitally flips to reveal...)

    Code:
    [01][02][03][04][05][06][07]
    [08][09][10][11][12][13][14]
    [15][16][17][XX][19][20][21]
    18 = HOME GYM

    (DING, APPLAUSE)

    Well, it isn't the million, but still a nice prize. Jim?



    Jim: The Xtreme 2 SE home gym lets you change exercises more quickly and easily with no cable changes needed between exercises. Now includes ab crunch shoulder harness and ergonomically designed adjustable seat. Featuring a 210-pound Power Rod system, it features the flexibility of a professional unit without bulky weights, from Bowflex! $1,599.

    (APPLAUSE)

    That goes into the prize pot for now. Let's see what the next card in the deck is...




    Candace: It's a seven.

    Middle of the road card, you have 4 chips, keep it or change it?

    Hmmm...It could screw me over quickly or help me out quickly. I'll keep it and hope I don't get screwed on this deal.

    Alright, then, let's place it, please...



    CURIOUS: 7


    The Blackjack Bonus is out of play for the day, we'll place another $50,000 in it for next time. For now, Curious, go ahead and pick another screen.

    Alright, let's see what we can add...


    Code:
    [01][02][03][04][05][06][07]
    [08][09][10][11][12][13][14]
    [15][16][17][XX][19][20][XX]
    18 = HOME GYM

    21 = $500 SPADES

    (DING, APPLAUSE)

    Alright, we put $500 into the prize bank right away. If this next card or any other card that comes up for your hand is a spade, we'll double that $500 each time. Candace, what's that next card?



    Candace: It's a ten.


    (APPLAUSE)

    That would take you to 17. Do you want to keep it or chip it away?

    Too much of a risk, I'll chip it.

    Alright, let's get rid of that card. Something I forgot to mention earlier - if you end up tying the dealer, you still win. With that in mind, can we get the next card, please?



    Candace: It's a nine.


    ...and that's a spade! Whether you take it or not, we'll double the $500 to $1,000. I'll ask again - keep it or chip it?

    You're down to 2 chips now. Next card?



    Candace: It's a Jack.


    Again, you'd have 17. Keep it or chip it?

    And the Jack is now yours.


    CURIOUS: 17

    Okay, another question. You stand the risk of busting now. Do you want to freeze and see what Candace has, or do you want to risk it and go on?

    I'll risk it. I'm just cocky and self-sure like that.

    Well, you were lucky with the cards earlier. Pick another number.
