    I just saw this show, I know it has been on in europe for a while but it just started here in the US. I was wondering what the equation they were using for the offers from the "banker", anyone figured it out yet? Goooooogle turned up very little.

    Does the banker know the value inside each of the briefcases ahead of time?

    I think the banker does not.

    Ok, from what I have read so far, it seems like there is no set formula. Instead the banker goes person by person and decides a number based on the money options left and the way the person has been playing.
