Evolution Gaming will develop new live dealer roulette and blackjack titles based on the hit television game show Deal or No Deal. The new live dealer titles are scheduled for release in 2019.
Deal or no Deal is a popular TV game show developed by Endemol Shine that sees contestants play and deal for a top cash prize in a high-energy contest of nerves, luck and raw intuition. In the TV format, each player is confronted with 26 sealed briefcases containing mixed amounts of cash.
Without knowing the amount found in each briefcase, the players pick one briefcase which is theirs to keep until it’s unsealed at the end of the game. The risk element kicks in when the player must instinctively eliminate the remaining 25 cases, which are opened one at a time, and the amount of cash inside is revealed.
The pressure mounts in each round, as the players are constantly tempted by a mysterious entity known as the Banker to accept an offer of cash in exchange for their briefcase prompting the host to ask the all-important question: Deal Or No Deal?
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution Gaming, added: “We have been pushing the innovation boundaries and what it means to be a live casino provider for some time now, and particularly in the last year we have started introducing game show style games, which has been a huge success. We all love watching game shows and why shouldn’t you be able to play along at home for real money? We are going to make this possible and we could not be more excited to bring this to online gaming.”
The new partnership marks the first live casino venture from Endemol Shine Gaming’s portfolio of brands and will cover European markets and North America.
