The Malaysian Chinese-language edition of Deal or No Deal (Chinese:一擲千金, pinyin: yī zhí qiān jīn, Jyutping: yat1 zaak6 cin1 gam1) is being aired on ntv7 at 7pm every Monday and Tuesday beginning 12 March 2007. Being the first Mandarin-language version of Deal or No Deal anywhere in the world, it was initially hosted by Goh Wee Ping, who was replaced by Owen Yap in season 2. Prizes range from 10 sen to RM 100,000, hidden 2 cases each held by a "Revlon girl" (i.e. the girls' appearance is sponsored by Revlon).

The second season premiered on May 8, 2008 for 52 episodes.[1]

Preliminary round[edit]

In each episode, six contestants join in the preliminary round in which the fastest one to answer two questions correctly progresses into the major "Deal or No Deal" stage.

If at any time the contestant answered a question wrongly, he / she will be disqualified from the game.

Second round[edit]

The contestant who won the Preliminary Round would select one out of 26 cases, hoping that the chosen case has the largest bounty. After that he/she needs to reveal six other cases before hearing the first offer.

The mysterious "Banker" communicates to Wee Ping through a phone, from which he reads out the Banker's offer to the contestant, tempting him/her with the catchphrase 賣或不賣 (pinyin:mài huò bú mài, lit. "to deal or not to deal"). As usual, if the contestant chooses not to deal he/she would have to reveal a number of unselected cases still held by the Revlon girls.

But when he/she makes the deal (by pushing a stylized red button enclosed in a glass case), or rejects the final offer with only one unselected case remaining he/she will answer an important question. If he/she answers correctly he/she gets the full amount of cash offered, otherwise he/she would only take 20% of it.
