LONDON, May 26, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year Jackpotjoy's Deal or No Deal game made two new millionaires in two unforgettable moments. Its Progressive Jackpot has just topped the magic GBP1 million again which means that another one of the site's members will be joining the millionaire club very soon...

"Deal or No Deal has always been one of the crown jewels in our slots offering," explains Robeson Reeves, the man behind the game's design. "Players are attracted by the brand, and the model will often see the jackpot building up into something very special.

"The game's earned itself the nickname The Millionaire Maker around the office," he adds with a grin, "and I think it fits!" To play Deal or No Deal visit Jackpotjoy at http://www.jackpotjoy.com

Deal or No Deal turned two of Jackpotjoy's members into millionaires last year. Keith R, a market trader from the North East, came first when he won GBP1.35 million one chilly January morning.

"On the day itself, I was working on the market and I headed home early - it was cold and quiet. My wife offered me a coffee and I switched on the computer and saw the banner for GBP1.3 million. I knew I had to give it a try.

"In the end I only had two boxes left - GBP200 and the jackpot. The banker offered GBP362, and I knew there was no-way I'd take it! So I said No Deal and then I saw the number coming from out of the box: GBP1,365,996.64 and I knew my life would never be the same again."

You can win Deal or No Deal's jackpot from within the slot's bonus game, which works in a similar way to the famous TV show.

You begin by choosing a box to keep and then select other boxes to get rid of. After removing four boxes, the phone will ring and you'll be offered a buyout from the banker. This act prompts the legendary question: Deal or No Deal.

If you choose No Deal, you'll continue removing boxes and dealing with the banker's offers, until a single box remains which is opened to reveal your cash prize - which could be the game's progressive jackpot.

The Deal or No Deal jackpot topped GBP1,000,000 on Monday evening and it will continue to rise until someone wins it.

"It's a very exciting time for the members of the site. We all know that sometime, probably very soon, we'll be making another millionaire. And as we always say around here: next time, it could be you!"
