Deal or No Deal Megaways Review
Deal or No Deal Megaways is a 6-reel, 117,649 ways to win Megaways slot developed by Blueprint Gaming that's of course inspired by the iconic game show of the same name.
This hit slot not only utilises the much-loved Megaways engine, but it also plays host to an incredibly lucrative progressive jackpot, bonus trail feature, and an unlimited win multiplier that kicks in after every single reaction.
We're not entirely convinced by the design of Deal or No Deal Megaways, we'd hoped it would emulate the show a little bit more than it does. Behind the reels is some red studio lighting, and the symbols are somewhat related to the show, that's it.
Low paying something are your standard royal card suit, 9, 10, J, K, Q, A and your high paying symbols are a mug with a question mark on it, a wax seal, an envelope and a Deal or No Deal Box. It's only the Deal or No Deal box that has any real connection to the show itself.
The only place that this slot really redeems itself in terms of design is with the bonus trail, as these boxes actually replicate something we see in the real Deal or No Deal show.
The music is incredibly short, generic and on a loop, so prepare to listen to it for a very long time as it never really ends!
Deal or no Deal Megaways has its reels laid out in a traditional Megaways manner, with an additional small row of symbols (that spin horizontally) covering reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 at the very top of the game screen, helping unlock more winning paylines.
On the left-hand side of the additional row of symbols there's a Megaways box that displays how many paylines are in play at any given time, to the right of the additional reel is the Jackpot King progressive jackpot counters.
On the left-hand side of the game screen, there's an info button that displays the game information and paytable, as well as the bonus trail.
On the right-hand side of the game screen, there's a large red play button, a cash button (that lets players change their stake between 0.10 and 10) and an autospin button (that lets players set up to 100 automated spins).
As this is a progressive jackpot (tied to the Jackpot King progressive jackpot network) it comes as no huge surprise that it has a slightly lower than average RTP of 95.72%, which actually isn't at all terrible in the grand scheme of things.
Players can also win a maximum of 10,000x their initial stake, which is pretty generous.
Deal or No Deal Megaways is filled to the brim with bonus features and mechanics, which of course is very important! It also has a really decent win potential for a progressive jackpot slot.
The only downside of this slot is that it doesn't really stay true to its name as a Deal or No Deal branded game, it falls short in terms of design and that killed the immersion for us.
