Online bingo has been incredibly successful for some time, and recently the bingo and online casino niches have been merging.
The biggest success in the casino genre in recent years has been live games, and now bingo is getting involved in that too via the use of popular TV theme, Deal or No Deal the Big Draw Live Bingo launched by Playtech.
How to play
Deal or No Deal the Big Draw Live Bingo is a 60-ball bingo game, albeit with a new take. As per the TV show, the idea is to polish off all the numbers in the 15 cases you are given, in this case represented on your bingo card.
There are different cash prizes in each box. When each case in the game is crossed off, so too is that particular cash prize. When a player crosses off seven cases as the balls are called out, they will be given the chance to take a prize from The Banker and thus end the game.
However, they can choose to play on and see if there is a better offer coming by multiplying the prizes left in the game.
How to Play Deal or No Deal the Big Draw Live Bingo
So, we have a mix of traditional bingo and Deal or No Deal. Buying tickets is easy and costs either 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1, 2, 5, 10 or 25 credits.
Once your tickets are bought, you can then boost the prizes in certain cases if you so wish. This costs extra of course but does increase your potential win value. A 0.10 credit ticket alone can net you anywhere from 0.50 to 10 credits, with prizes rising sharply, the more money you put in – and the more risks you take with The Banker!
Triggering The Banker’s offer comes when you have crossed off seven numbers. Once the first 20 calls are made, you’ll be offered “Deal or No Deal”. You can take the deal, reject it, or choose whatever prize is in your box.
After the first 20 calls, The Banker will also offer everyone in the room the chance to buy another 5 calls. At this point, Deal or No Deal the Big Draw Live Bingo can become more expensive with three extra 5-ball rounds to play making the game go up to 35 calls in total.
