In the main game show contestants predict whether the amount of money in the last of 16 briefcases to be opened will be higher than the banker’s offer. Prior to this they have three offers from the banker, which prompt the live host to ask the all-important question: “Deal or No Deal?”
The live game combines the suspense of the main game show with RNG-based qualifying and prize top-up rounds featuring slots-style random multipliers.
According to Evolution, the aim was to stay true to the Deal or No Deal TV game show’s format, while also creating a uniquely entertaining online live gaming experience for an unlimited number of players. This involved creating one of most complex studio sets that Evolution has built to date.
Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, said, “Players’ tastes are changing and they are increasingly telling us they love these game show style games, and this game hits the sweet spot since it is the ultimate game show that you can play along with on your phone. We worked really hard to preserve all the drama of the TV show and early signs are that players agree we have done just that.”
The end result is that all the familiar elements — including the universally recognizable studio set, theme music and rich sound effects for UI actions — perfectly recreate the atmosphere of the hit TV show.
