Lately, Slingo, a single or multiplayer game that combines features of bingo and slots, has become huge among online casinos across the globe. Unsurprisingly, the game is particularly popular among UK-based players.
The inventor of Slingo is real estate developer Sal Falciglia from New Jersey, United States. Sal Falciglia established Slingo Inc. in 1994 to develop and market slingo games. In July 2015, Slingo Inc. was acquired by Gaming Realms, a gaming company based in London. This triggers the popularity of online slingo in the UK.
Slingo has also been brought to the gaming floors of land-based casinos. The game is now available at Bally’s Atlantic City, Caesars Atlantic City, Paris Las Vegas and Harrah’s Reno.
How to Play Slingo?
Players can start the game by purchasing an ordinary bingo ticket that allows them to spin the numbers 20 times. Each spin will generate five numbers, which will be marked off if they match your card. The completion of each slingo (win line) will increase the size of the cash prize.
Special symbols will appear during gameplay, bringing different effects to the game. For instance, a devil reduces a player’s score by half, while a cherub shoots the devil with an arrow, neutralising its adverse effects. Joker symbols enable players to mark off any number in the row while landing super jokers means you can mark off any number within the grid.
Bonus spins, money and points are other unique features you can find in the slingo game. Points are what you need to buy the final four spins of the game. They can be collected by landing specific symbols, clearing rows, clearing the whole ticket and so on. If you land a devil symbol, your points will be deducted. The player who has most points by the end of the game is the winner.
Slingo at Ojo
At Play Ojo, you can find an engaging bingo-themed online slot as well as a range of entertaining slingo games.
Ojo players are spoilt with options when it comes to slingo games. They can choose from creative productions including Love Island Slingo, Britain’s Got Talent Slingo, Slingo Fortunes, Slingo Extreme, Slingo Rainbow Riches, Slingo Reveal, Slingo Reel Riches, Slingo Reel Extreme, Slingo Showdown, Slingo XXXTreme and Slingo Riches.
In Love Island Slingo, beach balls are the Scatters while sharks are the devil symbols. To win a cash prize in Britain’s Got Talent Slingo and Slingo Fortunes, players have to land at least three joker or super joker symbols.
Slingo Riches is also worth our attention as it offers a different approach to the traditional slingo game. It features only 15 instead of the usual 20 spins, making it harder to complete the grid. Also, Slingo Riches does not have a cherub symbol and the devil does not deduct the player’s score. It only stops numbers from landing.
