Slingo created in 1995 by Slingo Inc is an exciting slot game played in many casinos around the world including in Las Vegas!
In July 2013 the game was acquired by Gaming Realms who recently launched the game into the ever-expanding online gaming industry.
Slingo is a unique combination of bingo and slots. The game is mainly a single player, but the online multiplayer version Slingo Boom has that online bingo feeling where players can play with each other for bigger prizes and jackpots.
Gaming Realms have a range of sites where you can play Slingo online and on mobile / tablet. There are many different themes and versions of Slingo including the popular Slingo Riches Bingo and Deal or No Deal Slingo. Slingo Bingo and Spin Genie are two excellent sites for playing these games.
How to Play Slingo
Slingo may seem like a complicated alternative to 75 ball bingo but it is quite simple and lots of fun to play.
Each player receives one Slingo card with 25 numbers arranged in 5 columns (it looks a little like a 75-ball bingo card), a player then hits the spin button to receive 5 numbers at a time, these appear at the bottom of the card. If your card has one of the numbers, they will then be marked off the card. The aim is to create Slingos to win a prize.
Getting a Slingo
A Slingo is achieved when a player marks off 5 numbers diagonally, horizontally or vertically. Each Slingo created awards points, the player with the most points wins the game.
During the game, special symbols may show up instead of numbers. Jokers act are wild and mark off any number in the column in which it appears. Get a Devil symbol and your Score decreases but if a Cherub appears it will cancel the devil's effects by shooting it with an arrow.
Rules do vary between the versions, but these basics are about the same in every online Slingo game.
