The hugely popular Deal or No Deal TV show may have been off our screens for a few years now. But you can still play Deal or No Deal Bingo 75 Ball, the 75-ball offering available from Mecca that’s a sibling room to the 90-ball version of the same game.
As with the telly programme, it’s ultimately about beating the banker. And, it comes with a number of different ways of winning. For instance, there’s a huge community jackpot, so you could well be quids in!
How to play
Deal or No Deal Bingo is a 75-ball game. Every ticket consists of 25 squares in five rows plus five columns. All squares apart from the middle one contain a number. However, the central (or ‘free’) square has a star instead.
With every line game played here, a total of five prizes are up for grabs. For instance, you can win if you mark off one, two, three, four, or five lines on your bingo card. For the single-line prize, numbers may be in any direction—horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. However, for the other line prizes, you need to have your numbers in a horizontal line going across the ticket.
Things work in a similar way for the pattern bingo games. However, you play to mark off your numbers in the pattern shown instead of one of the line prizes.
Deal or No Deal Bingo 75 Ball Special Features
Deal or No Deal Feature
A highlight of the game, this exciting round is for the winner or winners of the Full House prize. That is, the banker makes an offer at the end of the game, and there’s the option to accept it. Alternatively, you can take a chance on the contents of the Player’s Box instead. The choice is yours. But the other players do have a vote on what you should do, and a say in whether it’ll be a deal or no deal.
Get into the community swing of online bingo with the community jackpot. In fact, this is a key part of the appeal in Deal or No Deal Bingo. Together, you may be able to bring down the banker! Hit the jackpot by claiming Full House within 43 ball calls or fewer.
The pot kicks off at a tidy £3,000 (at the time of writing). Also, because it’s progressive, the more you stake, the higher the final prize. The rule is that when this sum is won, half the cash goes to the player or players bagging Full House. But, the remainder to everyone else in the game.
Then, after it’s been claimed, the jackpot resets to its original £3k value and the fun kicks off all over again.
Return to Player (RTP)
In common with many online bingo games, the RTP isn’t shown separately for Deal or No Deal Bingo. However, for all Mecca’s bingo offerings, the RTP is a guaranteed minimum of 80%, which is a fair average. (The far higher RTPs are found in slot games rather than online bingo.)
Don’t forget to have a natter with your roomies. This user-friendly, sociable feature is a key part of the fun of online bingo.
So, we reckon you should have plenty of fun with Deal or No Deal’s 75-ball bingo game. You’ll enjoy its rollercoaster of excitement and suspense, whether or not you used to be glued to Noel Edmonds’ original telly version. And, if you fancy a change, you can also give the 90-ball sibling game a whirl as well.
What’s more, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with a highly reputable, long-established operator like Mecca. So, it’s definitely worth checking out—let us know how you get on.
