The bonus games are good fun and add another dimension to the traditional roulette game. The Deal or No Deal box opens up the classic Deal or No Deal feature, with the values assigned dependent upon the value of the initial stake on the roulette game. Upon starting the bonus game you are asked to select one box out of twenty-two, which is then put to one side as you eliminate the remaining boxes, been given offers along the way in standard Deal or No Deal style. I won’t go in to detail to explain the concept of Deal or No Deal to you, but it is worth noting that the game is random, and the offers stick to the average value of the remaining board.
The higher the initial stake, the higher the values of the boxes. You are able to see the value increase before you bet, by placing the chips on the bonus feature. Once you bet £5, a £500 value box is on offer, with each additional pound, up to a maximum of £10 adding a further £500 box, and further increasing the value of the remaining boxes. So the more you bet, the higher the chance of a big win on the Deal or No Deal feature. There are still however, many blue boxes, but your offers will also be drastically increased.
During the game, you can either choose an offer, or carry on to the final box, upon which, your box will be opened and that value will be paid. You will then be returned to the roulette wheel with an equal chance of starting the feature again.
The Phone feature is the lesser valued and faster played of the two. It is a mystery win game in the shape of an old fashioned telephone dial. Each of the twelve dial spaces is assigned a value. The values of which change depending upon the amount initially placed on the bonus position on the roulette wheel. The minimum of a £1 stake leaves values ranging from £6 up to £100, so the chance of 100x stake is on offer.
With each additional £1 bet, the values increase up to a maximum of £500. A maximum of £10 can be placed on the Deal or No Deal phone symbol. This will add further £500 values to the wheel, whilst also increasing the values of the other amounts too.
The odds of entering the feature are the same as the odds of landing on any other positions on the wheel. This is now 39/1 due to the two new added positions. This now means that the odds of landing on other numbers has increased, and as such, it is only worth playing this game if you intend to play for the bonus features.
You have an 19.5 to 1 chance of landing on a bonus feature which is pretty good odds for long term play.
