Deal or No Deal Slot – The Banker’s Riches
In the world of online slots, spin-off games from hit TV shows and films have become popular genres in their own right, and gameshows in particular have proven to be a rich seam of inspiration for some of the best online slots. So it can be no surprise that the extraordinary success of Endemol’s Deal Or No Deal format around the world clearly marked it out as prime material for a hit slot, and Deal or No Deal Slot – The Banker’s Riches is the result.
Depending on your viewpoint, the complete absence of the UK presenter Noel Edmonds from the online slot of DOND The Banker’s Riches may make this game instantly more attractive, however with or without the neatly-bearded cosmic orderer this is a great looking slot on first impressions. The graphics and audio nicely conjure up the atmosphere of the TV show, and the core basegame delivers a rock-solid slice of five-reel twenty-payline slot action.
In common with the best video slots, the standard symbols are beefed up with the DOND Wild symbol which can substitute for all other symbols, except the Scatter (of which more shortly) to turn more spins into wins.
The Scatter symbol is the key to the three fantastic bonus features this online slot can deliver, and most likely a healthy part of the secret of its success with players since two of those bonus features closely weave the appeal of the TV show into the gameplay. The Scatter symbols operate in the traditional manner in that they only have to be in view to be counted, and three or four in view will trigger one of the three bonus features.
Most conventional of the features in slot terms is The Reel Banker game, which functions as a free spins round where all wins are doubled –what adds a nice level of tension in this game is that the free spins are theoretically unlimited since it’s only when the Banker symbol lands on reel three than the round ends. Keep the Banker out of the way and those free spins keep coming!
The second bonus feature, which adds the first real dash of DOND decision making to proceedings, is The Banker’s Best Offer. This is a round where the Banker will try to tempt you with up to ten Banker Offers – you have the option to accept or decline an offer but can’t return to any declined offers after the event so the jeopardy is missing out on a maximum 20x multiplier of your stake to end up with the minimum 1x multiplier. If that’s got you itching to play this online slot right away, hold your horses, because the best is yet to come.
The third and final bonus feature, that is also the only one that triggers on the event of five Scatters, is ‘Deal or No Deal The Jackpot’ and this really is the dog’s dangly bits.
The Deal or No Deal Jackpot is not only your chance to play the classic box-picking game for yourself – including the interventions from the Banker when he’s getting worried you’ll take him for all he’s got – but the headline prize to chase is a whopping progressive jackpot with a baseline that builds from £100,000. Enough said.
Simply put if you love themed progressive slots and / or you love Deal or No Deal this online slot is quite simply a no brainer. It’s a firm ‘deal’ from us.
