'Deal or No Deal is just one of Endemol's many global brands that can seamlessly cross over to social gaming,' said Peter Cowley, Endemol's global head of original digital productions. 'This version of the format delivers fun, addictive gameplay that anyone anywhere can enjoy for free and we hope this month's launch will be the first of many in this space.'
