The theme of the game needs little introduction at all, with it of course being based on the the British game show Deal or no Deal. Upon the game loading you'll find yourself in the bright lights of the famous studio, where hopefully you'll get the chance to win yourself a life changing amount of money.
Viewing the pays on the slot we can see that the lower value symbols are represented by classic royals 9 through to the ace. Premium pays come in the form of the bankers mug, bankers seal, envelope, and DOND box, where a 6 of a kind win will pay 2x, 2x, 5x, and 50x respectively.
Players can get the reels spinning on this slot for as little as €0.10, whilst the maximum stake comes in at €10. The RTP on DOND Megaways™ is 95.34%, which is a little below the average for Megaways™ in general. However anything between 95-96% for an online slot can be considered as respectable.
WINNING SYMBOLS WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE REELS ON DOND MEGAWAYS™
THE REELS WILL CASCADE AND WINNING SYMBOLS WILL BE REPLACED BY NEW ONES ON DEAL OR NO DEAL MEGAWAYS™
It's now commonplace on a 117,649 Megaways™ Slot that the game will include the very popular cascading reels feature, and Blueprint have decided once again like they have previously in exciting slots such as Bar X Safecracker Megaways™, to include this in Deal or no Deal Megaways™.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with cascading reels, each time you achieve a winning combination on the reels the symbols involved in that win will be removed from the reels, and new symbols will drop down from above, or slide in on the upper reel.
This player favourite feature can pay very well, especially if you have a large amount of Megaways™ in play, and you hit several winning cascades. With regards to DOND Megaways™, the cascading reels also play a part in triggering the bonus round, and during the bonus round itself, which we will now learn more about.

CASCADING REELS HELP TO TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN FEATURE ON DEAL OR NO DEAL MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
4 OR MORE REEL CASCADES WILL TRIGGER A CHANCE AT THE FREE SPIN FEATURE ON DOND MEGAWAYS™
To trigger a chance of getting the free spin feature on Deal or no Deal Megaways™ you will need to hit 4 or more consecutive reel cascades. Positioned to the left of the reels you will notice 3 deal or no deal boxes with arrows on them, and then the 4th, 5th, and 6th boxes will give you the opportunity to play deal or no deal itself.
WHICH CASCADE BONUS WILL YOU TRIGGER ON DOND MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
WIN UP TO 20 FREE SPINS FOR THE BONUS ROUND ON DEAL OR NO DEAL MEGAWAYS™
Depending on how many cascades you achieve will ultimately decide on which deal or no deal game you will play to try and trigger the free spin feature. The following amount of cascades will result in the corresponding game being played.
4 Cascades bonus - Awards cash and free spins
5 Cascades bonus - Awards more free spins
6 Cascades - bonus - Eliminates all blues

Once it has been decided which cascade bonus you are playing, you will then choose boxes to eliminate just like in the TV show, and be made offers from the banker. Ideally you would like to be left with just free spins so that you can play the feature, or to trigger the top cascade bonus so that all cash values have already been eliminated.
Blueprint have made some very successful slots through the use of the mystery symbol, and just before the free spins begin a random amount of these will be added to the game reels on Deal or no Deal Megaways™. At any time during the bonus they can land and transform into one of the symbols from the paytable, and if you have played a Blueprint slot before that features these symbols you will know that they have the potential to produce some impressive wins
EACH WINNING CASCADE WILL INCREASE YOUR MULTIPLIER BY X1 DURING THE BONUS ON DOND MEGAWAYS™
MULTIPLIER INCREASING AFTER A WIN ON DEAL OR NO DEAL MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
As the free spin bonus gets under way, it has a very familiar feel to it. Any winning combination will trigger a reel cascade, and each time one these takes place your multiplier will increase by x1. As we have now seen in countless games such as Bonanza Megaways™ and Vikings Unleashed Megaways™, if you can build up a high multiplier and land a premium symbol with a decent amount of Megaways™, then you could be looking a very big win coming your way. Alternatively landing a large amount of mystery symbols can also lead to something tantalising if your multiplier is high.
deal or no deal megaways™ slot review final thoughts
Blueprint Gaming are continually trying to raise the bar with their Megaways™ releases, and Deal or no Deal Megaways™ is an excellent addition to their growing portfolio. It was nice to see a different use for the cascading reels feature, and this is the first time we have seen it used to trigger the possible start of a free spin bonus.
There will no doubt be some frustrating times ahead for players when they are just left with a blue side of the bonus board, and how many times the game will offer up the 6 reel cascades for a guaranteed free spin bonus will remain to be seen, but our first impressions of this slot are that it will be popular with online players around the globe.
