The Deal Or No Deal 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games have been hugely popular with players for years; bingo variants come and go but Deal Or No Deal Bingo has the sort of enduring popularity that most game creators can only dream of. It’s not just bingo, of course – there’s Deal Or No Deal Slingo, what seems like dozens of Deal Or No Deal slot games, and live dealer Deal or No Deal games from both Playtech and Evolution.
Now there’s a new Deal Or No Deal bingo game, live at Paddy Power Bingo and Betfair Bingo (after being trialled at Sky Bingo which is ultimately owned by the same organisation). It’s called Deal Or No Deal Multiplier Bingo and it’s basically 90 ball bingo with Deal Or No Deal theming and a couple of extra features.
When you buy a ticket for Deal Or No Deal Multiplier Bingo, the prizes you see are the minimum you could win (if you win, of course). Not only do the size of the prizes increase as further tickets are bought in the run-up to the game, there’s the multiplier which gives the game its name. You only get to find out what your multiplier is just before the game starts – and other players in the same game may have different multipliers! If you win, your multiplier is applied to your prize. Multipliers range from 1x to 5x.
Deal Or No Deal Multiplier Bingo also has a jackpot game which works in the same way as the Judges Jackpot in Mecca Bingo’s X-Factor Bingo game. An extra bingo ticket is shown at top of the playing area; to daub a number, someone has to win full house on that number ball. There are fixed prizes of £10 for daubing a number, £50 for completing 1 line, £100 for completing 2 lines and £250 for full house, and all are split 50/50 between the full house winner and the other players.
What Deal Or No Deal Multiplier Bingo DOESN’T have is the Banker’s Offer feature from the original Deal Or No Deal bingo games – so it’s a bit less interactive than the earlier games. Nevertheless, there’s the excitement in every game of waiting to see what your multiplier is going to be, plus the rising excitement in the room as the jackpot game nears completion – expect lots of extra players to pile into the room, increasing the size of the regular prizes, when the jackpot ticket is 1TG!
