Deal Or No Deal Vegas Gold [rating: 3/5]
The game comes with several other games featured and to play Deal Or No Deal you have to earn your winnings first. To do this you have to compete in the casino games. There are five to play, which include: BlackJack, Craps, Slots, Roulette and Texas Hold’em poker.
When you first start the game you have access to the BlackJack game. You have to play and win cash there to unlock the other four games. To unlock them you simply purchase a game with your winnings. All the winnings from the games win you your chance to play Deal Or No Deal Vegas Gold.
You can either play a quick play game or the full Vegas Gold game. If you play the quick game you just play a game of the classic version of Deal Or No Deal. If you have never played this game before the game is all about 26 cases that have a sum of money in them from $1 to $1 million. You choose a select number of boxes. Then the banker offers you money for your boxes before you look inside. You choose whether you want to accept his money or open the boxes and take your winnings. It is really entirely on luck what you end up winning if you choose to open the boxes.
If you decide to play the full game you have to start the casino games first and then work up to the No Deal game. Each game is touch controlled, if you are spinning the wheel you swipe, shake to clear a pot or simply tap the screen.
The games are straight forward enough if you know how to play. If you don’t it is quite hard to pick up and play by following their instructions.It does become quite confusing as well when trying to remember if you have to tap, swipe or shake. It is very easy to lose your winnings if you accidently use the wrong control in a certain game, an error that I made a few times.
The more you earn you achieve access to different floors where the winnings are higher and you can go right up until the diamond floor. There are also power ups to help you along your way.
Within the game are virtual models to assist. All these ladies are like real life models who smile and entice you to play, they do seem to move slightly awkward and seem to be fidgeting a lot though. I felt that because of the ladies on every game, it was aiming it more to the male gamer rather than open to anybody. Not to say it isn’t a game for females as well I just felt maybe there should have added both males and females to even it up a little. It would after all benefit the developers as it would open it up to everybody.
The game at times didn’t always respond to my touch or if it did it was very delayed. There was a lot of loading time in-between as well which can get annoying when all you want to do is just play. The animated graphics are very good and realistic and do certainly have that Vegas feel about it.
The game is very similar to the other casino games available in the app store. I-Play have managed to add excitement to the classic game of Deal Or No Deal. If it was the game on its own it would not have the excitement like in the actual game show as you are not playing with real money. Therefore adding the other games give it an edge above the other Deal Or No Deal Games.
