Welcome to the Flash Pot-dropping, Questing, Mission Possible-smashing world of Gala Spins! What better way to start putting your spin on it than with Slingo — the fan favourite is a mixture of a 75-ball bingo game and a traditional slot machine. It went from being quietly released on AOL by a New Jersey businessman in the mid-90s to becoming a fan-favourite of today, thanks to its pick-up-and-play mechanics and tons of variations that appeal to bingo fans and slot spinners alike!
HOW TO WIN AT SLINGO
Ever crossed off numbers on a bingo card or spun a slot? You’re already halfway there! For most Slingo games (excluding a few specific variations), the aim of the game is to spin the slot reels to see if any numbers you get match ones on your bingo card. If you manage to match five in either a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line, that’s a Slingo! The more you complete, the higher up the paytable you will go. Plus, some symbols can help or hinder you at any time.
WHAT DO THE SLINGO SYMBOLS MEAN?
In almost all Slingo games, there are four main symbols you need to know. The first is the Joker, which is the ‘Wild’ and can be used to tick off any number in the same grid column it appears in. Second is the Super Joker, which takes it one step further by letting you tick off any number anywhere on the grid. Next, is the Coin symbol, which pockets you an instant cash prize if you get one, and finally is the Devil (boo!) who can block potential Slingo matches.
WHAT MAKES SLINGO POPULAR?
One aspect that’s made Slingo so popular is its loads of spin-offs! The core gameplay is still at the heart of every version, but some are based on beloved UK TV shows, like Deal or No Deal Slingo, where you can go up against the banker. There’s Slingo Rainbow Riches starring the ever-present, always smiling Lucky O’Leary who’s become a fan favourite to the Slingo series. Or if you prefer your games to be more of the Asian persuasion, then there’s Slingo Xing Yun Xian and Slingo Fortunes.
