Evolution Gaming has launched the world’s first 24/7 game show, Deal or No Deal Live, based on the hit TV show, allowing players to play along from the comfort of their own home.
Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, said: “This really is the start of a new era where entertainment is at the core of the new games we are making. Netflix, YouTube and video games are the alternative to online gaming, so games need to be both great gaming experiences and entertaining.”
“We wanted to stay true to the game show that people know and love, retaining the engaging presenter and the thrill of awaiting the offer from the banker but all the while making it compatible for online players as a live game. With that in mind, we embarked upon what has been the most complex studio that Evolution has ever built to date. The game has a mix of RNG elements allowing players the chance to win big, as well as the universally recognisable studio set design and rich sound effects for UI actions recreating the atmosphere of the hit TV show and bringing that to online gaming.”
Evolution’s Deal or No Deal Live has the profile to attract new player types to Live Casino. It is the world’s first 24/7 game show.
Mr. Haushalter added: “We want to reach an entertainment standard so high that people would want to watch the progress of the game even if they weren’t players in it, just as they would watch the TV show. We have never introduced so many games at one time. Following our successes with Lightning Roulette, we naturally feel pressure to deliver more truly unique games that not only engage today’s players but also provide new levels of entertainment and immersion. There is a real buzz around the company because we are confident we have met that challenge with this stellar line-up of new games. We are so very proud to be working with such a landmark famous name as Deal or No Deal, as well as showcasing incredible speciality games — all developed in-house by our immensely strong and talented team.”
In addition to Deal or No Deal Live, nine other new games were showcased at ICE.
These include Lightning Dice, which has multipliers of up to 1,000x. It is the latest member of Evolution’s Lightning family following the runaway success of Lightning Roulette.
Also being launched at this year’s ICE were Free Bet Blackjack, the most popular Blackjack variation in land-based casinos, Super Sic Bo, a new take on the favourite dice game, supercharged with random multipliers of up to 1,000x and Side Bet City, a fast, simple poker game with big pay-outs and wrapped in a 1980’s theme.
There were also two new RNG games that further extend Evolution’s First Person Gaming range with First Person Dream Catcher and First Person Lightning Roulette. Elsewhere, 2 Hand Casino Hold’em offers two separate hands in each round of our most popular Poker game whilst Infinite Blackjack, allows an unlimited number of players to sit on one table and make independent decisions. This game recently went live and is already the most popular Blackjack table in the world by player counts.
