In addition to the television show (broadcast in 50 countries all over the world), there are dozens of roulette games, board games, online video slots and slot machines based on Deal or No Deal.
And now there is the ultimate casino version of Deal or No Deal: Deal or No Deal Live.
Evolution Gaming (who else?) took on the task of creating a Deal or No Deal Live game that you can play at the Live Casino. And they have done that their best.
They have demonstrated in the past to be absolute masters in creating Live Casino versions of existing games. Games such as Live Dream Catcher, Lightning Roulette, Super Sic Bo, and Monopoly Live are all phenomenal interpretations of existing casino games.
How does Deal Or No Deal Live Work?
It is important to know that the game actually consists of three parts:
- The qualification round
- The top-up round
- The briefcases game
The Qualification Round
Before you can start the game, you must first qualify.
You first determine the stake with which you want to play the game. The minimum bet is 0.10 NZD, and the maximum bet is 25 New Zealand Dollars.
This unit will be calculated, and you can bet a multiple of this before you actually start the game. Our tip: don't start too high (for example with 0.50 or 1 NZD and first see how the game works.
You qualify by spinning a wheel that consists of 3 gold-colored segments. If all three sections end in the "Locked" part of the wheel, you have gained access to the main game.
There are three betting options:
- Normal (most difficult): 1 x the total bet
- Easy: 3 times the total bet
- Very Easy: 9 x the total bet
These betting options make it easier or harder to qualify and have no influence on the possible amounts in the briefcases.
Obviously, the following applies: the faster you qualify yourself, the lower your "investment" has been.
You always have 2 minutes to qualify for the next game. Bad luck? No need to worry, a new game will start with new opportunities.
The Top-Up Round
The Top-Up round is an intermediate round in which you are not obliged to participate. On the left and right side of the screen, you see the briefcases that you will play with later.
The lowest value is 0.1 x the total bet, and the highest is 75 x 500 x the total bet worth. All other values are between them.
You can then increase the value with a briefcase of your choice. To do this, select one of the cases and turn the wheel.
That costs you 1 x the total bet, and you always win a prize that is between 5 x and 50 x the total bet.
By raising one or more briefcases extra, you spread your chances of winning. CasinoFisher likes not to raise the highest briefcase because it already contains a large amount. It is better to make 2 or 3 other briefcases nicer and more expensive.
CasinoFisher usually does 1 or 2 extra "Top Ups" per briefcase, depending on prices that have fallen.
The Briefcase Game
The famous briefcase game is played with 16 briefcases.
There are 8 briefcases with low content (blue) and 8 suitcases with high content (red).
One of the cases is in front, next to the presenter. This is the case with which you will play. This can, therefore, include a high price or a low price.
Then several cases are opened at the same time. Will it be blue or red briefcases? And do those high briefcases stay in the game?
- First round: 3 briefcases
- Second round: 4 briefcases
- Third round: 4 briefcases
- Fourth round: 3 briefcases
After each round, you will receive the offer from the Banker to buy your briefcase. The amount of this offer depends on the virtual value of the cases that remain.
Now the game is, of course really interesting. Do you respond to the Banker's offer, or do you continue to play, with the risk that high briefcases are opened? By the way, you don't have much time to decide: after 10 seconds the game continues. If you want money, accept the Banker's offer on time.
After the fourth round, you always get the choice to change your briefcase. Do you feel safe with your own choice, or do you make the ultimate switch at the last minute?
Payment Percentage of Deal or No Deal Live
Deal or No Deal Live has an average payout percentage of 95.42%.
Deal or No Deal Live Strategy and Tips
If you want to increase the variance of the game considerably, use the Top-Up round to enhance the highest prize plenty. More risk, but also more chance of a big prize.
Be careful with the Very Easy bets in the qualifying round. These cost no less than 9 times the total bet. The more you have bet to qualify, the lower the chance that you will end the round with a win.
The theoretical payment percentage of Deal or No Deal Live is 95.42%. That means that this game has a house advantage of 4.58%. That's pretty big. Therefore, use the hit-and-run strategy for this game wherever possible: if you stand for a nice win, then stop playing.
A good first round can often provide you with a direct profit. Make use of this, even if you double or triple your stake.
