Wednesday April 3, 2013 : GSN DIGITAL LAUNCH FACEBOOK DEAL OR NO DEAL SLOTS
Extends popular television game show to virtual slots players
GSN Digital, the interactive division of GSN, has augmented its GSN multigame portal on Facebook with the addition of Deal or No Deal Slots.
The new virtual slots game is based on the popular television game show, Deal or No Deal, which was created by production company Endemol.
Deal or No Deal Slots is a classic video slots game, incorporating components from the television show, such as making a deal with the Banker, pushing the Deal Button, and opening cases to unlock dollar amounts.
The game features a five-reel slot machine, in which players have the chance to win virtual Tokens by matching various combinations of symbols comprising 15 pay lines. If a player lands on three mini game symbols on any of the reels, the Deal or No Deal mini game is activated.
The mini game features up to eight rounds of play, in which players eliminate cases and receive offers from the Banker. If a player accepts the Banker's offer, then the game ends and the player wins the corresponding amount of Tokens. If a deal is not met, the player continues to the next round.
In addition to its launch in the USA, the game is being adapted in different languages in markets around the world including Germany, Italy, Spain and Scandinavia.
"Deal or No Deal Slots is the latest example of how GSN Digital is breaking the traditional slots norm by combining great game mechanics with a highly engaging mini game," said Jeff Karp, executive vice president, mobile and social games for GSN Digital. "The result is a top-quality gaming experience that provides a combination of entertainment and moments of suspense to keep players coming back for more."
Jurian Van der Meer, managing director of Endemol Games, added, "This new partnership with GSN represents another milestone for Deal or No Deal, which is a long-established and powerful global brand in the online gaming space. The format is a perfect fit for this kind of social casino game and we believe Deal or No Deal Slots will be a big hit with fans around the world."
Deal or No Deal Slots is currently available on Facebook within the Games by GSN app, joining other titles like Wheel of Fortune® Slots, Outlaw Video Poker, Video Bingo and Speakeasy Solitaire.
The game will also be available on GSN.com in the coming weeks.
