Deal Or No Deal Megaways – Blueprint Gaming
Today we return to the year 2019 to learn all about an older release, this time by the studio Blueprint Gaming. The provider is very popular with great success when creating games with the infamous Megaways mechanic. With many licensing agreements to create unique slots, today we are learning about one of many. This slot is titled ‘Deal Or No Deal Megaways’, originally released 27th September 2019.
The provider over the years has produced many games using the theme of ‘Deal Or No Deal’. This was a very popular British game show, hosted by Noel Edmonds (A familiar face on British television). The show aired from 2005 – 2016, this includes 14 series and a total of 3,003 episodes. Now we have a very exciting release inspired by the show. Releasing 18th December is ‘Deal Or No Deal Megaways‘.
Visually if the box art on the left side and the premium symbols were changed I would not be able to tell where the inspiration is from. Another note is the music is not the actual theme tune which is disappointing. The theme tune is something I still remember years later. The background is very basic, set in a studio with lots of lighting. Premium symbols have artwork from the. Visuals are well made, I just think some minor changes would help the game relate to the game show more.
Deal Or No Deal Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2-7 rows, this includes 117,649 ways. This game is high variance due to the max win capped at 10,000x and set RTP of 95.34%. You can bet from £0.20 – £10.
Deal Or No Deal Megaways Paytable & Symbols
This game has 12 symbols in total, this includes 6 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 9,10, J, Q, K, And A. There are also 4 premium symbols which are represented by question mark mugs, banker stamps, banker offer letters, and deal or no deal red box. There is also wild and question mark mystery symbols that will transform into any symbol except the wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the deal or no deal box which pays 50x for 6 across all symbols.
Deal Or No Deal Megaways Features
Central to this game are the features, the first is the ‘Bonus Trail’. This is activated by having 4 consecutive cascades occur within 1 spin. 4 Cascades Awards = Bonus, 5 Cascades = Super And 6 Cascades = Mega. When triggered you are then greeted with a new screen, showing 22 different boxes in the center of the screen. On the left are blue low money values and on the right are red higher money values, plus free spins. You will need to decide on which box to keep by your side. Then you must take turns choosing boxes to reveal their value to then be taken off the board. You can accept the banker’s offers, keep your chosen box until the end or leave the game.
If you manage to trigger the free spins feature you will benefit from an unlimited multiplier. This increases by 1x for every winning combination. You can also be awarded +5 free spins for landing 3 free spin scatters or 10+ free spins by landing 4 scatters.
Overall, we have seen a Deal Or No Deal game before many times by Blueprint Gaming. However, with the addition of Megaways, it plays a lot smoother and has more depth to it. In the base game, I think the growing multiplier would have made it more intriguing for players. Any lover of the game show will love playing it for themselves in the bonus feature. The volatility is there it just depends on what bonus features you prefer. Be sure to try the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
