Deal or no Deal has gained mixed to negative reviews, depending on the console it was released on.

On the other hand, the DS version has been given very negative reviews from critics.

GameSpot also rated the game 1.5/10.0, calling it the most idiot-proof concept in the world. Metacritic rated the game 20/100, a poor review.
