Ralph Coppola, president of Innovative Concepts in Entertainment Inc. (ICE), announced last month that the company will double its initial production run on its newly licensed ticket redemption game, Deal or No Deal.
Based on the popular TV show of the same title, the redemption Deal or No Deal game plays much like the television show – only the game’s suitcases contain ticket values instead of money. Each player starts out by picking their personal case, and then continues to eliminate the remaining cases. Once the player completes the first round of eliminating five cases, the “banker” will call and offer the player a guaranteed amount of tickets. It’s up to the player to decide to take this “ticket offer” or continue to play for a bigger win. The game continues on with four rounds of play in this fashion. If the player chooses “No Deal” at every banker’s offer, they win whatever value is in their original chosen case.
Deal or No Deal comes with a 32-inch LCD monitor and the lighted floor and stool are optional. ICE will begin shipments mid to late May. Orders will be shipped on a first come, first served basis.
