Deal or No Deal Win Fall is the popular £100 jackpot fruit machine from Bell Fruit. Combining elements of many other Deal or No Deal fruit machines with a from Bagatelle style bonus game.
Housed in the new Elite cabinet, Bell Fruit have finally moved away from the thick plastic cladding that has been stuck to the sides of their machines for the last ten years, and brought us a stunning video and reel based fruit machine that combines both traditional fruit machines, and slot machine style visuals.
Win Fall has four reels, and three stake options; 25p will open up one win line on three reels, 50p will open five win lines on three reels, and £1 play will open up ten win lines on four reels. The fourth reel will allow for wins to pay both left to right and right to left.
Disappointingly, wins are auto-collected unless combined with three or more phones to open up the feature.
The Deal or No Deal feature is opened up in the same way as many of the others, with three anywhere in view opening the standard game, and three or four on the line opening up the Win Fall Deal or No Deal feature.
The high definition video display has opened up a whole host of new and unique opportunities, so no more of the tedious Deal or No Deal fruit machine playing style, Win Fall has a brilliantly animated Bagatelle feature to award a host of prizes.
Instead of taking you straight to the DoND phones game, you start with the Win Fall feature and five values at the bottom of the grid. These five values will vary depending on the number of phones used to open the feature, and four out of five can all be the same.
When the ball falls and lands in a value, you can either collect it or gamble. If you choose to gamble, the position is marked with a red X, with the other three remaining positions upgraded. These upgrades can include one or more £100 values. This process is then repeated until you either collect a value or lose.
Look out for the Bankers Bonus button that can upgrade certain slots, or eliminate a red X so you will be guaranteed a win on your next gamble.
The top values are DoND, Super DoND, Mega DoND and £100. There are also other cash wins in-between those amounts, although due to the way the game plays, it is very rare for the ball to land in a value above £12, excluding the Deal or No Deal games.
The Deal or No Deal feature is random and offers one of the following 16 values:
1p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2, £3, £4, £5, £6, £8, £10, £15, £25, £50, £100
You play the game in the usual way, with an offer after every three boxes. The final value can then repeat, with £100 able to repeat a maximum of once.
Regular Deal or No Deal offers the standard game board with 16 cash values. Super Deal or No Deal awards two game boards, each with 16 values however as there are two games been played at once, you will be able to predict your final value before the feature ends. Mega Deal or No Deal is the same as Super however it will combine both offers, so you should end up with a win above £40 a lot of the time.
Red phones will double any reel win or open up the Deal or No Deal Win Fall feature. The Bankers Bonus button can light up randomly and can open up the fourth reel if you are playing on 50p, or 25p. It can also offer a skill shot to open the game, a fruit shoot or a win spin. During the bonus game the Bankers Bonus can upgrade your winning values and/or eliminate the red X.
In summary, Deal or No Deal Win Fall is a great step forward for DoND games, and Bell Fruit alike. The cabinet looks very good, with a great HD screen, however there is a lot of missed potential here. It would have been nice to see a random Bagatelle style repeat chance, and not be forced to collect reel wins, a cashpot would also be good. I’m sure future incarnations of this variety of game will be vastly improved. You can play Deal or No Deal Win Fall in pubs and Arcades in Britain.
