Evolution Gaming has officially confirmed the launch of Deal or No Deal Live, the latest of its live entertainment games.
It’s an interesting game, that’s aimed at providing more of an entertainment experience than a gambling one.
As live dealer games go, I don’t like it. I haven’t enjoyed playing it. However I’d encourage you to try it out for yourself. It may be something you love!
It’s certainly different from anything we’ve seen from traditional live casino games, and follows a trend started by Evolution to provide more entertainment.

Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, today announced the launch of Deal Or No Deal Live, a unique new online live game created in partnership with Endemol Shine Gaming. First unveiled at ICE 2019 in February, the new game is available exclusively from Evolution and joins the company’s growing range of game show style games.
Based on the hit TV show, Deal or No Deal Live is the world’s first 24/7 game show, allowing players to play anytime, anywhere, on desktop, tablet and smartphone.
The multi-layered game combines the suspense of the main game show with RNG-based qualifying and prize top-up rounds featuring slots-style random multipliers.
In the main game show contestants predict whether the amount of money in the last of 16 briefcases to be opened will be higher than the banker’s offer.
Prior to this they have three offers from the banker, which prompt the live host to ask the all-important question: “Deal or No Deal?”.
According to Evolution, the aim was to stay true to the Deal or No Deal TV game show’s format, while also creating a uniquely entertaining online live gaming experience for an unlimited number of players.
This involved creating one of most complex studio sets that Evolution has built to date. The end result is that all the familiar elements — including the universally recognisable studio set, theme music and rich sound effects for UI actions —perfectly recreate the atmosphere of the hit TV show.
Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, said:
“Players’ tastes are changing and they are increasingly telling us they love these game show style games, and this game hits the sweet spot since it is the ultimate game show that you can play along with on your phone. We worked really hard to preserve all the drama of the TV show and early signs are that players agree we have done just that.”
“This is a unique, stand-out game that will add extra variety to our licensees’ Live Casino offering and be a big attraction for the widest range of players.”
Anil Mistry, Director of Games & Gambling, Endemol Shine Group, commented,
“Evolution Gaming is perfectly placed to deliver an immersive experience in the Live Casino space and has developed a truly unique and innovative game. The Deal or No Deal brand is immensely successful in the gaming sector and the launch of this latest offering is testament to the enduring appeal and versatility of the format.”
Press Release Ends
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?
After all that, would I play there regularly?
