Slot games are one of the most popular aspects of online gaming. In fact, the brightly-coloured reels and themed adventures take up roughly 70% of both online and land-based casinos. With this in mind, gaming developers have created a new way to take slot gaming to the next-level – Slingo!

What is Slingo?
These Bingo slot games combine two of the most iconic games of chance, with new themes and features to get stuck into.
The idea of Slingo was created by a New Jersey businessman in 1994, and was launched in 1996, the same year as the first online casino.
In simple terms, the game is a hybrid creation of 75-ball Bingo and Slots, where you’d typically find a five-by-five number grid, with slot reels placed directly below.
The idea is to cross off the numbers on your grid using the corresponding ones that match, when they land on the reels.
How to play
You can play Slingo for real-money, much like other games at online casino sites. Once you’ve placed your bets, simply press spin!
By crossing a line of numbers off your grid, you’ll create a Slingo. This, in turn, moves you along the score board, or could even earn you some instant prizes.
You might also find some special symbols throughout gameplay. In classic Slingo games, these can include a Joker, Gold Coin, Super Joker and Free Spins.
A Joker is a sort of ‘wild card’, and can be used to tick off any number in the grid.
A Super Joker can be used to tick off a number anywhere on your grid, and three or more Jokers, or Super Jokers, can bag you an instant money prize. The Coin symbol also has the potential to bag you – you guessed it – some coins!
There are even some symbols that can block you from creating Slingos, generally represented by a Devil, so watch out!
Different ways to play
Due to the nature of the game, Slingo can only be played at online casino sites, rather than land-based venues. However, this does mean that gameplay is available on any compatible device, anywhere you have internet access, at any time you fancy!
What’s more, thanks to advancements in technology, you can now explore Slingo XXXtreme. Or, you could delve into other themed games like Rainbow Riches Slingo – inspired by the popular Slots franchise. This Irish-themed game is filled with leprechauns, rainbows and four-leaf clovers, making up the beautiful Emerald Isle.
Or, you could attempt to beat the banker in gameshow-inspired Deal or No Deal Slingo. You could even become an avid angler in Slingone Fishin’ and see if you can bag the catch of the day! And that’s only the beginning…
There are so many themed Slingo games available, you’re bound to find one that suits your gaming style.
And, with so many new ways to explore your combined love for online slot games and classic Bingo, do you think you’ll be trying your chances at Slingo any time soon?
