Topa ou Não Topa is the Brazilian version of Deal or No Deal, broadcast in Portuguese by SBT. It is hosted by Silvio Santos. There are 26 cases, containing amounts from R$ 0.50 to R$ 1,000,000. On August 25, 2010, the gameshow returned and the host is Roberto Justus but in similar set to the old version. Like most sets of Brazilian versions of US game shows, their set and graphics are a dead ringer to the American counterpart. The R$1,000,000 grand prize was won by a man named Paulo in April, 2007.
À prendre ou à laisser is the French version of Deal or No Deal. It was premièred in January 2004 on TF1. It is hosted by "Arthur", the vice-president of Endemol-France and popular radio presenter. The 22 boxes represent the 22 régions of France, with each contestant coming from that region. The prizes range from €0.01 to €500,000; and include three "joke" prizes and a "joker", containing an amount determined by the number of contestants who answer the "selection-question" correctly. The "joker" is €10,000 multiplied by the number of correct answers. There has been at least one winner of the €500,000 prize, by Sabrina on 29 November 2005. However, a contestant won €620,000: a contestant eliminated all the boxes without the €1,000,000 box and a box which contains the CD. The contestant sold his box for €620,000, and he had the CD in his box. It is always considered by "l'affaire du siècle". Other factors particular to the French version is that the prize is shared with a viewer who has phoned in to enter the competition; and offers of an "échange" are fairly frequent.
