Deal Or No Deal Bingo Review
Hit TV game show Deal Or No Deal has become a good partner to online bingo and online gaming. First there was the slot game from Jackpotjoy and then a scratchcard version. This was followed by a bingo version which runs across the Virtue Fusion Network and finally a dedicated site - Deal or No Deal Bingo.
The dedicated site was one of our favourites. However, as the TV show faded from our screens so did the stock of the DOND Bingo site. In 2018, the site still exists, but social media isn't being updated. Furthermore, Endemol Affiliates closed down without notifying anyone. Our original review remains below, but we advise new players to choose other brands.
Deal Or No Deal Bingo started life as part of the Better Bingo Network which was headed up by Crown. In 2014 it left that stable but remained on the Virtue Fusion Network but under the Endemol Games brand alongside Benidorm Bingo. The latter fell by the wayside whilst the site that is unmistakably "Deal" with it's familiar red boxes continues.
Deposit £10 Play With £40
New players are welcomed with a 300% bonus. Deposit £10 and get £40 to play. The bonus funds are split so you get £20 for bingo and £10 for games. There's a x6 wagering condition on the former whilst the latter bonus comes with a x20 condition attached. These requirements will need to be met before you can withdraw winnings, however you can opt to ignore the bonus.
You can obviously play 90 ball and 75 ball Deal Or No Deal Bingo on the site - you'd expect as much - but there are other rooms including Lucky Numbers Bingo, Speed Bingo and Rainbow Riches. There are other 75 and 90 ball rooms to play in too and these have DOND related names such as The Perfect Game and The Dream Factory. In reality though this is simply a Virtue Fusion site along the lines of Gala, Mecca, Sky and William Hill. So what's unique about DOND?
Well, if you're a fan of the show then the links to the official site blog, social media and the occasional chance to win DOND related prizes may be enough to lure you in. You might also want to follow DOND Bingo on Twitter and Facebook for updates and extra bonus offers.
The offer of DOND prizes such as a trip to watch the show being recorded or even have the chance to play the game for real should be this site's massive unique selling point. They have offered these prizes in the past - it's a shame that they're not so frequent now. However there's a regular monthly bonus called The Pilgrim Bonus. Plus if there's a £250K winner on the Deal Or No Deal TV show you can potentially claim a £10 bonus!
If you're a fan of the programme and like bingo then you'll love Deal Or No Deal Bingo - the website. The fact that DOND Bingo or any of the related slots like DOND Classic or The Banker's Riches isn't unique to the site does take away from it. Without the unique prizes or promotions on offer we think that some players may feel that they're being short changed by The Banker.
Time To Deal Elsewhere
Overall this was a good bingo site and a TV/bingo tie-in that worked well. Whether Endemol lost interest or the brand floundered as the TV show ended is unknown. Would we want to now play at this site? We don't need to call The Banker to say "no deal".
