Play Tombola Deal Or No Deal Bingo - 90 Ball Bingo

Published On 27th January 2024

When Deal Or No Deal returned to our TV screens during 2023 with Stephen Mulhern at the helm instead of Noel Edmunds, Tombola were the show's sponsor. To coincide with the partnership a special game called Banker's Bonus was added to the site. This is an instant win style game where you need to match prize amounts that are revealed in 12 DOND style red boxes. However, Tombola's love affair with Deal doesn't end there as they've now launched a Deal Or No Deal 90 Ball Bingo game. Yes another one! Tombola now join Virtue Fusion and Entain in offering players a branded version of the popular TV game show. And let's not forget that Pragmatic Play have their Diamond Dazzle that draws inspiration from the show's format.

About Tombola's Deal Or No Deal Bingo

First off if you're hoping for lots of Deal or No Deal red boxes or even a glimpse of Stephen Mulhern then you're going to be disappointed. This is because this version of Deal or No Deal Bingo, like Entain's 90 Ball Game, is based on the US game as opposed to the one that we're more familiar with here in The UK. We do get the familiar Deal soundtrack though which is at least something. The backdrop of Tombola's Deal rooms are a mix of gold and black which looks cool and in fairness is better than the Foxy version. The good news is that the format of the game is very familiar and the aim is to get the full house and get the opportunity to beat the banker in a bonus game.

How To Play Deal Or No Deal Bingo

When you first visit Deal or No Deal Bingo at Tombola you'll be offered the chance to access a number of different rooms such as The Vault, Banker's Den, Box Bonanza and Big Deal. We're guessing these are capped which means better chances of winning. Note that during the night these rooms do become linked. Once you've selected a room it's simply a case of purchasing your tickets. You can purchase one ticket for 10p or a strip of four tickets for £2. From thereon Tombola's version of DOND Bingo follows the traditional 90 ball game to a point. The numbers are called and winners created for one line and the full house. During game play any case numbers that match a number call will be removed. Note that there's no two line winner. When the full house is called the Deal Or No Deal element of the game takes centre stage.

The Bonus Round

In other versions of DOND Bingo the bonus round is the preserve of the full house winner, but not at Tombola. Instead every player gets involved. Each number on your ticket represents a case with a monetary value. The first number matched represents your case and the prize you could win whilst the remaining numbers at the end of the game represent the values that interest The Banker. You're then made an offer by the banker for your case and you're given the option to deal or no deal. You only have a few seconds to decide so don't dilly dally checking the remaining values at the top of the screen! The Banker's offer is revealed but don't think that you've won. This is because Tombola then selects one player at random from those playing as the winner. Not only do you see the prize that they've won but also if they've chosen to Deal or not. It's a clever way to get everyone involved with the mechanics of the game.

Other Features

Surprisingly there aren't any additional game features with Tombola's version of Deal so for example you'll not win a jackpot for calling house in less than X calls. However the game has all the usual features that you'd expect such as being able to turn the sound on/off and choose between auto and manual marking. You can also check the game history by clicking the little hamburger symbol at the top right of the room. Chat is available but interestingly for a Tombola room it was quite quiet when we dropped in. Players were sharing their 1TG info but there wasn't any chat moderators or anyone instigating discussion. That's one of the things that made Tombola stand out and it'll be sad if they're scaling this down to cut costs.

Our Verdict

Do we really need another bingo version of Deal Or No Deal? We're not so sure but as DOND is a popular game at other sites it's perhaps not a surprise that the show's sponsor is wanting in on the action. It also kind of makes sense unlike when Gala Bingo had Corrie Bingo whilst the official ITV site couldn't mention it. The Tombola game itself is decent and we do like the bonus round at the end, especially as it's not kept back just for the FH winner. As with most Tombola games though it is hard to win and it's even more galling to see your name just miss out on the banker bonus prize (even if in our case it would have been to win 2p instead of the offer of 31p - big money!!). Deal at Tombola does make it feel a little more mainstream which does make us wonder whether we're seeing Flutter now moving towards a platform that can replace the Virture Fusion set-up on Paddy Power, Betfair and maybe even Sky?
