Play Deal Or No Deal Bingo - 90 Ball Bingo
Article Updated On 1st May 2020
Deal Or No Deal has been one of the most successful TV shows to transition from small screen to online gambling. It's influenced slots, slingo and even for a while it's own online bingo site. However one of the first bingo games to feature the famous red boxes was 90 ball Deal Or No Deal Bingo. This bingo version of Deal is also one of the few that still features the host of the original Channel 4 series, Noel Edmunds.

How To Play Deal Or No Deal Bingo
Deal Or No Deal Bingo 90 is available to play on various sites on the Virtue Fusion Network. This means that you can login to sites such as William Hill, Buzz and Gala and play in the same bingo room. The room is open from 11am through to 1am and attracts a large number of players. We think this may well be down to the fact that the bingo games are cheap, a lot of fun and the room carries a nice progressive jackpot element too.
The Deal Or No Deal 90 ball room is like any other 90 ball bingo room. However, it has the traditional DOND black and red branding and Noel Edmunds even makes an appearance when the game initially loads in. The 90 ball game plays on a standard ticket featuring 15 numbers and the aim is to coverall the numbers before your fellow roomies. Prizes are awarded for one line, two lines and the full house.
Beat The Banker
However to give the game the much needed Deal Or No Deal twist, and make it resemble the TV show, you will see 22 red DOND boxes in play. Inside each of the boxes is a prize amount. 21 of the boxes are numbered whilst the last one - The Player's Box - is held by The Banker and positoned next to the black phone. As the bingo calls are made during the game any numbered box that corresponds to the call is opened and removed from play. Note that you can choose to show the prize amount instead of the numbered boxes during game play.
But what is the purpose of these Deal Or No Deal boxes? Well at the end of the game the full house winner is virtually phoned by The Banker and made an offer. They can either take The Banker's offer (deal) or take the prize box value (no deal). To add an element of fun all the roomies are asked to vote "deal" or "no deal". This prize is awarded in addition to the full house prize. To help the full house winner assess their odds the remaining prize totals are shown on screen, low values in blue to the left and the higher prize amounts to the right.
To add a further element to Deal Or No Deal 90 ball bingo even more exciting there's also a progressive jackpot. This can be won if house is called in 34 calls or less. If the jackpot is won then it's split 50/50 with the winner and the community. At time of writing the progressive was just over £7000. When the jackpot is won then it's reset and seeded at £5000.
As with it's 75 ball counterpart we're impressed with this bingo game. This is because it does feel like a Deal Or No Deal game. Far too many themed rooms are just a typical 90 ball bingo game with some fancy graphics and not much reference to the actual show it represents. In this case you even get Noel Edmunds popping up on the winning announcements. The bingo caller even sounds like him although we're not sure it actually is Noel. We also love the transparency at the end when the full house winner takes on The Banker. Overall this is quite simply the perfect game.
