Deal Or No Deal Bingo
This is a very exciting game and it's based on the popular game show deal or no deal on channel 4 (in the UK).
At first it looks like a regular 90 Ball Bingo game but there's an exciting twist
at the end which I shall explain in detail now.
To start with it would be best if you look at the screen shot below which I took from a deal or no deal bingo
game over at Bet365. Please note that the screen shot below is by no means the full screen that you see
when you play a deal or no deal game, the screen shot below is merely relevant to the explanation that I am
about to give you.
As I said higher up, deal or no deal games are accommodated into regular 90 ball games. If you look
at the left hand side of the screen shot above you can see that the game I was playing had the following
1 line - £30.93
2 lines - £66.29
House - £154.66
This alone is very good price money and is a good enough reason to play. However I shall now
discuss how the deal or no deal side of it works.
As you can see in the screen shot there are 21 numbered boxes and then there is one next to the
telephone which isn't numbered. You should also take note of the blue column of numbers at the left hand side and
the red column of numbers on the right.
When bingo balls are called that match the number on one of those boxes, it will then open and
reveal the amount inside it. For example, in the screen shot the top left hand box is number 22 and on close
inspection you can see that it's blue.
So if the first bingo ball called was 22, that box would open and it would contain one of the 11
numbers that you can see in the left hand column. Whatever sum came out of the box would then disappear from the
left hand column. As the game progresses, more boxes will open and more numbers will disappear from both the
left and right hand columns.
It then gets really interesting when someone wins the full house. At this point the game stops and
the person that won gets to play deal or no deal.
By the time someone has won, there are usually no more than 10 boxes left. Now the box that is next
to the phone with the question mark on is classed as "your box" and it will contain one of the amounts of money
that you see in the left or right hand column.
You basically get the choice of either accepting a deal that you're offered, or you can decline the
deal and see what sum of money is in your box and then you keep that amount of money.
The best way to explain this would be by giving you a very simple example. Using the above screen shot as an
example again, lets pretend that it took a long time for you to get a full house and that by the time it was
won, only one numbered box and your box remained in the game.
Let's also pretend that the two sums of money left were £220 and £440. Obviously your box will contain one
of these sums as will the remaining numbered box.
You will then be offered a deal somewhere in the middle of these two numbers, it would probably be around
£330. It would then be up to you whether to accept the £330 (deal) or to take a chance and see what sum
is in your box instead (no deal). You only get 10 seconds to make your decision.
Once you've made your decision there's no going back. If you choose no deal and the sum in your box is less
than the deal you were offered, it's tough luck. If on the other hand the sum in your box is more than the deal you
were offered, the decision to not accept the deal will have paid off.
So as you can see, deal or no deal bingo is an exciting game to play and it's very popular. There's a real
opportunity to not only pick up some large prizes, but to have fun along the way as well. My personal favourite
site for playing deal or no deal bingo is Bet365 who offer it all day everyday.
