Deal Or No Deal: Las Vegas!

This latest version of GTECH’s franchise of video slots based on the popular game show Deal Or No Deal features several new elements and a format not seen in any of the title’s previous incarnations.

Deal Or No Deal: Las Vegas! features a unique base-game grid of two reel sets, one on top of the other, sharing a middle reel. The briefcases from the “Briefcase Bonus” are visible at the right of the screen constantly.

The progress of the Briefcase Bonus, the central feature of the game in which players gamble on whether their own briefcase will hold more than several offers from the “Banker,” is present on the base-game screen.

The base game includes wild symbols, free-spin bonus triggers and a “Banker” symbol that awards mystery wilds. There also is a two-level progressive feature. During base-game play, players accumulate “Big Deal” and “Mega Deal” briefcase symbols that count toward the progressive. Eight Big Deal cases trigger a progressive resetting at $20, and 18 Mega Deal cases trigger a jackpot resetting at $200.

There are two main bonus events. The Free Spins bonus transforms reels 2 and 4 into shared reels between the two reel sets. The shared reels include wild symbols and re-trigger symbols for the free spins, the number of which is determined by the number of triggering symbols.

The main Briefcase Bonus offers the player one round of briefcases to open revealing award amounts, after which the Banker makes a credit offer. Judging from a list of possible amounts whether or not the player’s assigned briefcase will contain a higher award, the player can accept (“Deal”) or decline (“No Deal”) the Banker’s offer. If he declines, a bonus wheel appears on the top screen, and spins to award one of two different free-spin bonuses, credit awards, a double of the remaining case values, Big Deal or Mega Deal cases, or a “sneak peek” at the amount in the player’s briefcase.

The briefcase field remains visible while base-game play resumes.
