True, but the "rules of the game" explicitly state that the gatekeeper allowing for the DEM does NOT count as letting the AI out - the gatekeeper would have still had to explicitly and intentionally set the AI free to actually lose the wager. I don't think I'd be very convinced to let it out on that basis, not if I got $10 for keeping it inside the box.
