Things could get a little confusing with this game, as there is also a Virtue Fusion bingo site that is called ‘Deal or No Deal Bingo’. However, in this article we are specifically talking about the bingo game that is available to networked rooms on the bingo network.
This bingo game is based on the TV show of the same name, and for the most part plays as normal. However, the winner of the full house also gets to try to beat the banker in a bonus games.
How To Play Deal or No Deal Bingo
There are currently two versions of this game on the VF network, one for 90 ball bingo and one for 75 ball bingo. Each has its own separate room and games take place all day.
Initially, the 90 ball bingo version is the same as any other 90 ball bingo game and the 75 ball bingo game plays as the line game. In both types, all the normal prizes are awarded to players.
The game also has a number of red boxes – much like the ones seen on the DOND TV show. Each box has a number on it which corresponds to one of the bingo balls, and contains a mystery cash amount. When a ball is drawn that matches one of the boxes (there are more balls than boxes, so it isn’t every number), that box is opened and the value of the box is revealed. This value is them removed from the prize board.
When the game finishes, the player who achieved the full house is then offered a bonus amount from the banker. They can either choose to accept the amount, or swap it for the mystery amount contained within the players box. Other players in the room can help the winning player make their decision by voting ‘Deal’ or ‘No Deal’, but the final decision is with the winner.
Deal or No Deal Bingo Community Jackpot
The Deal or No Deal Bingo rooms also have a jackpot that is paid out when a full house is called in under a set number of balls (eg: in 42 balls or less for the 75 ball bingo game). The winner of the full house receives 50% of the jackpot, and the remaining 50% is shared between the other players, based on the number of tickets that they bought. So if ‘Bob’ bought one ticket and ‘Mary’ bought ten tickets, Mary would receive 10x the amount that Bob does.
