One lucky slots player was celebrating an incredible win this week after it was confirmed that they had triggered the £653,183 Deal or No Deal jackpot from a 20p bet.
The jackpot win, equal to $994,124 or €833,036, is the fourth largest to have been recorded with a 20p bet on the Deal or No Deal slot. It is also dwarfed by the largest ever win with a 20p stake on the slot which was £1.9 million won by a player identified as Mathew G back on 28th August, 2010.
This Deal or No Deal slot is based on the popular UK television show of the same name that has been developed by Gamesys. It is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot and players can win one of three progressive jackpots that consist of the 5p, 10p, and 20p jackpots. The slot follows a similar format to the game show where players must select a number of boxes to reveal cash amounts and then decide whether or not they want to gamble by picking more boxes or accept a cash offer from the banker.
The average win on the 20p jackpot is a huge £571,984 and the jackpot is estimated to trigger once every 21 weeks. The smallest win recorded for this jackpot is £63,298 and this was triggered just over a year ago.
The 20p jackpot restarts at £10,000 after every jackpot win, the 10p jackpot restarts at £4,000 after every win, and the 5p jackpot restarts at £2,000 after every win. All three progressive jackpots have paid out at least £500,000 wins to players over the years.
Further details regarding this latest 20p jackpot win on Deal or No Deal are expected to be confirmed over the coming days.
Another popular slot of the same theme is Deal or No Deal – Banker’s Riches by Endemol, although it doesn’t have the jackpot linked like other version.
