The Deal or No Deal (DOND) phenomenon exploded on the bingo scene following the success of the hit TV game show. Playtech’s bingo network, Virtue Fusion, rolled out themed bingo rooms, slots and scratchcards under a brand licensing deal with Endemol Shine UK. A selection of games is also available via Blueprint Gaming.

Deal or No Deal bingo is a winning combination offering an unforgettable experience of unmatched fun, adventure and prizes up for grabs.

History of the Game Show

The DOND concept was born in the Netherlands as “Hunt for Millions,” or “Miljoenenjacht.” A series of TV shows subsequently shot to international fame. In 2005, countries such as the UK and USA debuted a new show based on briefcases or boxes containing cash prizes, known as “Deal or No Deal.

The game is played with 26 boxes/cases with cash values concealed inside. To start, the player chooses one case, which is put aside without revealing its monetary value. The contestant may choose between this case or the last case in play at the very end.

Case selection proceeds in a series of rounds…

The prizes are revealed and eliminated from play. Based on the eliminations and the remaining cash prizes on the board, a call is made to the “Banker” after each selection round. The Banker reviews the odds, makes a cash offer to the player and asks "Deal or no deal?" If the player accepts the offer, the game ends and the offer is rejected, it’s back to picking boxes. Decisions are based on the prizes still in play after each round. Rejecting a deal presents the risk of losing the higher value prizes in the next round. Of course, the idea is to end up with the largest prize possible.

Will the player accept a deal or stick with their original box until the end?

DOND Bingo Rooms

This game has reached such acclaim that it has made its way to the online bingo world. Playtech gained exclusive rights to produce branded DOND iGaming products for the UK market via its bingo network. The bingo version falls in line with the original game show format in terms of graphics and heart-stopping audio.

DOND bingo rooms are designed to transport players to the game stage. The theme is available in both 75 and 90-ball variations. Red boxes contain cash amounts, which are revealed with as numbers are called. When a player claims a Full House the DOND feature begins. Bingo roomies participate by voting as to whether the winning player should keep one of the remaining red boxes or take the banker’s box. The ultimate decision is up to the player as the momentum builds and time runs out.

Slots and Scratchcards

The brand’s thrill has swept across the online gambling sector with the addition of slot games and scratchcards. Once again, the theme comes to life in a series of titles.

Deal or No Deal – The Big Draw

Playtech expanded its portfolio to include a live version of the game in September 2020. The format of the game show is captured in a bouncing ball game featuring 16 prize cases. The player selects a buy-in and as the numbers are called, they are marked off the ticket along with the prizes. Meanwhile, the banker’s bar also fills up and when it reaches seven, the first offer is made.

The player may end the game by accepting the offer or buy five extra balls to carry on. Your case is opened once you’ve rejected all deals and all balls have been called.

Other features include the boost and mini draw side game. Players can increase one of the prizes before the round starts and take part in the mini draw side game, which is based on the initial 20 draws.
