It’s been a busy month for the developers over at Entain. As we reported last week they’ve moved Gala Bingo over to their own platform from Virtue Fusion. This switch included relaunching new versions of the Corrie, Emmerdale, The Chase and Coconut Island bingo games. Moving house however did means that Gala lost a few games but picked up new versions of others. Namely Fluffy Favourites Bingo – which is a 36 ball game on Entain – and Deal Or No Deal. The latter recently launched on Foxy as a 90 ball version but they’ve now also added a 75 ball game.
Entain Add Deal Or No Deal
Fans of Deal Or No Deal Bingo will know that it’s been a staple of Virtue Fusion bingo sites for years. Whilst other themed games have come and gone, Deal remains popular with players. We think that is because the quiz show translates really well into the gambling arena and Entain are aware of this! Therefore they’ve created their own versions. Whilst some players may find this confusing it’s something which happens a lot in slots. Companies which own brands – like Monopoly, Deal, Fluffy Favourites – license them out to developers. Entain have taken advantage of this to help build their rosters.
Entain v Virtue Fusion
For the most part the various versions of Deal are the same. A basic 75 or 90 ball game plays and at the end of the process the full house winner is offered the chance to take on The Banker. However there are differences between the Entain versions of Deal Or No Deal Bingo and those already established at the likes of Paddy Power Bingo. The biggest difference is the design of the games. The originals use the red boxes that are associated with the UK version of the game. Entain though have opted for the US design where silver suitcases are used in place of the red boxes. The Entain game also encourages user interaction by asking the roomies to vote whether the FH winner should “Deal” or “No Deal”.
Whilst we like the user interaction element on Entain’s games, Playtech’s versions have community jackpots. Games also play from just 5p! As these games are more established the number of players in the Playtech rooms are much higher than you’ll currently find in Entains. For example at time of writing Paddy Power Bingo was hosting 215 players in the networked 75 DOND room compared to 33 at Foxy’s networked room. The 90 ball room comparison is 130 vs 24! It’ll be interesting to see if Entain’s versions of Deal will build up bigger audiences and if they effect the numbers on other sites.
