Skill games developer Gamblit Gaming has entered into a strategic partnership with production company Endemol Shine to develop land-based casino games based on the hit TV gameshow Deal or No Deal.

The partnership with Endemol Shine subsidiary Endemol Shine Gaming will see new Deal or No Deal branded games rolled out in 2018 on Gamblit's Model G interactive gaming tables and TriStation terminals.

The Model G interactive gaming tables will feature a multiplayer version of Deal or No Deal Poker Special, while the TriStation terminals feature single-player Deal or No Deal Poker.

Deal or No Deal debuted in 2000 and has proved a huge hit, with the format replicated in more than 75 countries. It has also spawned a number of land-based, online real-money and social games based on the TV show.

"I've loved Deal or No Deal ever since I watched the first episode with my family," Gamblit chief marketing officer Darion Lowenstein said.  "Now being able to re-create the excitement, intensity and pure fun of the massive global hit show with friends or as a single player in the modern arcade – the casino – is both a personal and career high."

Endemol Shine Gaming managing director Owain Walbyoff added: "Endemol Shine Gaming have an extensive portfolio of world-renowned brands and we are always looking for fresh and original ways for players to enjoy them. With trusted partners Gamblit Gaming, we are delighted to launch a brand new way of playing Deal or No Deal in this innovative style of skill based gaming."
