Very interesting heatmap. What made you come up with the idea and how long did it take you to make it?
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

heatmap,

I also enjoyed the video. Congratulations on your success!

What is the value of 1,000 tickets? What does it cost to play the game?

Do you think the arcade will allow you to continue playing once they see that you win the big prize each time?

Heatmap: is this your video, or did you just find it?

This is very cool and great "project" to experiment with computer vision and coding.

However, despite the 10 second timer to choose your briefcase there's an easier way to defeat this game.

1. Record the shuffling in slow motion.

2 persons in parallel:
P1: watch the shuffle in slow motion and manually track the briefcase.
P2: Play the game as slowly as possible. After 10 seconds pick a random briefcase (or let the game choose one for you). When you have to open briefcases, play as slow as possible still, waiting for P1s conclusion. If you don't have an answer, open random briefcases.

I haven't played this version, so I don't know how much time you have, but in most cases (pun intended) you should be able to simply avoid the big prize and then switch case to that one at the end.
