You were probably a fan of the hugely popular Deal or No Deal Bingo on TV, fronted by Noel Edmonds in the UK between 2005 and 2016. If so, you should find this 90-ball bingo take on the show equally thrilling. And, unlike the telly version, it’s playable 24 hours a day!
With four fabulous prizes up for grabs, not to mention a community jackpot, there’s absolutely everything to play for.
How to play
Getting started on Deal or No Deal Bingo couldn’t be easier. After registering at Mecca Bingo just decide how many tickets you want, confirm your purchase, and you’re good to go. Each ticket for this 90-ball game has three rows with nine columns. On each row, there are five numbers, meaning a total of 15 numbers on every ticket.
At the same time, each game in Deal or No Deal Bingo has a minimum guaranteed jackpot. You’ll find out the final prizes only after a game kicks off, and these will depend on how many tickets have been bought. So by buying more tickets, you’re effectively helping to increase the size of the jackpot!
Each game has prizes for marking off one or two lines, or calling Full House, before any of your fellow players.
Deal or No Deal Bingo Feature Prize
This is for the winner or winners of the Full House prize only. At the end of the game, the banker will make them an offer, which is theirs if they wish. But there is another option – to take the risk of choosing the contents of the Player’s Box instead.
The other players get involved too. They’ll vote to help the winner decide. But the rest is up to them!
Deal or No Deal Bingo features a progressive community jackpot. That is, everyone can team up to bring down the banker. This kicks off at a juicy £5k, so, again, the more you stake, the more you’re likely to win.
Half of the cash is awarded to the winner, the other 50% is divided between all other players with a ticket in the winning game. Grab this jackpot by calling Full House within 35 ball calls or fewer. Then the jackpot rolls back to its £5,000 seed value, and the fun starts all over again.
Return to Player (RTP)
This describes the percentage of wagered money a game pays back to players over time. With Mecca, while RTP isn’t published for individual bingo games, it’s guaranteed to be at least 80%, which is a good average for bingo.
With online bingo, the emphasis is always on fun, and the chat feature is aimed at keeping things lively and entertaining, so do join in, say hi to your new bingo buddies, and enjoy the banter. Your chat hosts are always around to keep things light-hearted and to settle any queries you may have. Occasionally, they may throw in a little extra game to add interest, perhaps incorporating some general knowledge questions or a bet on what number the next ball will be.
Of course, you’ll especially enjoy Deal or No Deal Bingo if you were a fan of the TV quiz, but you don’t have to have loved it to get a lot out of the bingo version. What’s more, Mecca is one of Britain’s best-known bingo brands, so you’ll be playing with a leading operator.
This game offers a refreshing take on standard 90-ball bingo with many elements that you will no doubt find familiar from the TV show. Decide for yourself if you think it’s one for you. You can also move into the sibling room, 75-ball Deal or No Deal Bingo if you want a bit of variety.
