Ever since the very first show aired back in 2005, Deal or No Deal has become a household name and believe it or not, despite the game show being off the air since 2016, Noel Edmonds and the face-less banker have become even more of a hit of late, and it’s all thanks to the online gambling industry! From bingo games to live casino tables, the DOND brand is iconic, there’s no denying that!
Blueprint Gaming may have taken some inspiration from a rival software company for their latest Deal or No Deal Lightning Spins release, what with a lock and re-spin style win feature (if you’ve played Wolf Gold, you’ll know what I mean!), but unlike Pragmatic Play’s howling good title, this one offers additional ways to win and multiple ways of beating the banker!
Bonus features are anything but standard, yes, you’ve got wilds and base game wins, but unlike the original release, this DOND title offers a bonus where players will be transported to a virtual Deal or No Deal studio with the offer of different cash prizes! Ultimately, it’s your decisions that will decide what you win; will you go head to head with the banker to win cash or will you be lucky enough to trigger the ‘lightning spins’ feature?
Twenty-two identical sealed boxes with cash values (in blue and red) and a banker’s telephone wait to greet you in the studio. Choose from those boxes on your screen to eliminate boxes in the hope of landing a huge win from your box or the banker. Each round will produce an offer – will you ‘deal or no deal’?
Lifting the Lid on Wins:
Red box symbols with cash values are what’s known as the money scatter and during the main feature, these boxes are locked in place while remaining positions spin using the special ‘lightning spins.’ This feature comes to and end when you either have a full 5×3 reel engine or you run out of spins. It’s like landing bonus spins, only a lot more exciting!
There is a progressive jackpot up for grabs and this can be won randomly…
…on any spin (of any value!), including during the bonuses. Lock and re-spin wins can also be triggered during the base game; six or more in view will instantly award 3 re-spins. Each time a money box land, the re-spin meter resets to the maximum of three.
Mini, major, mega and the progressive jackpot are all up for grabs, the value of which will be represented by the value of your stake (excluding the progressive which remains the same value regardless of stake!). The rules to state that the maximum win can be as much as 50,000x your stake or £250K and that’s life-changing! To help defeat the banker, the base game offers super stacked wilds; they’re wilds, only super-sized!
