What is Slingo?
Slingo is a hybrid game, that combines both Bingo and Slots into one game format, allowing players to spin the reels whilst also virtually daubing off numbers from their Bingo ticket.
Slingo is only available to play within online environments, whether that be online via a casino provider app, or in person down a casino establishment within the electronic games section.
A Slingo guide for beginners
As the name suggests, it’s a lot like a traditional game of Bingo and Slots, just all rolled into one. The gameplay shows the action between both a five by five numbered grid, acting as your Bingo card, and a set of reels below the card, introducing the slot side to the game hybrid.
To get your first game of Slingo up and running, you’ll first need to select which Slingo game you wish to play from the virtual casino floor.
Once you’ve chosen your game, press play for the game to load and arrive on your screen.
To play, you’ll need to spin the reels below the Bingo ticket area. When the reels stop spinning to reveal the numbers, your inner Bingo player will then need to see if any of the numbers match those found on your Bingo ticket above.
However, in many Slingo games available, there aren’t just numbers spinning around in play – there could be symbols that award anything from instant prizes to bonus numbers.
Of course, this is all game-dependent and symbols and prizes vary per game – we advise reading the terms and conditions as well as the gameplay information available, before hitting spin.
Slingo games available
Just like your favourite Bingo and slot games ready and waiting to be activated in the virtual casino lobby, the Slingo section is just as full with varying themes available.
So, if you fancy daubing numbers and spinning reels on television show inspired games such as Deal or No Deal Slingo, or you’d prefer to shoot for the stars in Slingo Starburst, there’s a whole host of themes to choose from in the Slingo section.
