Deal or No Deal Live – TV Hit to Gaming Fave
Deal or No Deal was a huge television hit when it was first released and still lingers in the minds of anyone who witnessed its original format and premise. It crossed over into other forms of entertainment such as a land-based quiz machine as well as an online live casino game.
Let us take a look at the features of the popular Deal or No Deal Live casino game.
Qualify to Make it Through to the Gameshow
Most popular gameshows require their players to go through some kind of qualifying process in order to make it onto the show and in front of the cameras.
The same goes for the Deal or No Deal Live casino game, as players must qualify for the gameshow round. This is done by spinning the three reels of a bank vault wheel, with the gold portions of each reel being what must match up in order for a player to advance.
Once all three gold symbols do match up then a player is taken through to the Top Up Wheel until the main gameshow round starts, and where many of the game’s elements resemble those seen in the TV gameshow.
The challenge is to know when to say “deal” or “no deal”
The Top Up Wheel
The Deal or No Deal Live game dynamics kick straight in once the qualifying round has been passed, as players are faced with what is known as the Top Up Wheel.
This wheel features multipliers which increase the prize money in one or more of the 16 briefcases that can be chosen during the main gameshow round. It is up to players just how many times they choose to spin the Top Up Wheel before heading on through to the business end of the game.
Let the Show Begin
Out there under the bright lights of the main gameshow stage, players are faced with 16 closed briefcases.
The game begins with the gameshow’s assistant opening some of the cases to reveal what’s held inside, until finally the player is offered something by the host based on what they have seen revealed thus far. Then, the player must make the most important decision of all- “deal” or “no deal”.
Choose a deal, and the player automatically receives what the gameshow host offered. Choose no deal, and more cases are opened with the same decision arising again with a revised offer.
If a player manages to hold their nerve until the final suitcase, then another option arises, as they can select “Deal” to accept the dealer’s final offer, “No Deal” to take what lies inside the final case, or “Switch” to see what is to be found inside another case instead.
