Based on one of the most successful tv game shows in recent years, Deal Or No Deal bingo has taken the internet by storm.
In the show, a whole host of ordinary people get to play for potentially life-changing amounts of money, if they just pick the right boxes. Hosted by Noel Edmonds, it was a UK phenomenon that has gone around the world.
It’s no surprise that spin-offs of the game have emerged with plenty of slot and online bingo versions of the game available to play at a number of prominent gaming sites.
Today we’re going to look at the Deal Or No Deal Bingo game and how you play it.
How It Works
Available at Mecca Bingo, Deal Or No Deal has two parts to it. The first is the usual bingo game and in this case, it is based on 75 ball bingo. There is also a 90 ball option.
You purchase your tickets in the normal way and can win on one, two, three, four or five lines. The five lines is essentially the Full House. There is also a progressive jackpot which you can win if you clear a full house in under 35 calls.
Betfair Bingo also hosts Deal Or No Deal Bingo and they have two versions. The first is a standard 75 ball game.
The second is a multiplier game. When you purchase your tickets, just before the game starts, you open the famous red box and are awarded a multiplier for that game. If you are lucky enough to win, your prize is multiplied by the amount in the box.
As an example. If the prize for one line is £5 and you open a box with X3 multiplier, and you win, you get £15.
What adds to the Deal Or No Deal bingo game is that there are also 21 boxes at the beginning. These boxes are randomly numbered. They also have random amounts of money in them, up to £510. As the bingo calls are made, any boxes that match get eliminated from the game.
Whatever boxes are left in play, when the game ends, go into the bonus round. That bonus game is played by the player who wins the Full House prize.
Noel Edmonds appears and the amounts in each of the remaining boxes are revealed. The banker makes an offer and the player must decide whether to open their box or take the banker’s offer.
For added fun, the other players are allowed to vote on whether to accept the banker’s offer or not – though that is only for fun. The player then gets the Full House prize and the winnings from the Bankers bonus round.
Deal Or No Deal Bingo is extremely popular. Ticket prices vary but generally start at around 2p per ticket.
You can expect hundreds of players to take part in most of the games so even in the middle of the day a full house prize can be worth over £150. It’s fun and interesting and has a nice twist on the usual bingo game.
There is also a host of other promotions on at Mecca Bingo throughout the year so make sure you take a look at some of them as well.
