Slingo Originals are the studio behind the whole Slingo concept. This original game combines elements of slots and bingo, and is becoming ever more popular with players. Slingo Originals still produce the vast majority of games on the market, but other developers are getting in on the act. And some have even come up with their own variations of the game, like Blueprint Gaming’s Prize Lines concept.
But here, we’re going to take a look at Slingo Originals, and so if you want to find out all about this great developer, and its even greater games, read on.
Gaming Realms, the company behind Slingo Originals was founded in 2013 in the US, and started releasing games under the Slingo Originals label in 2015.
In 2018 Slingo games were first introduced to the UK, and this is also the year Slingo Rainbow Riches won the WhichBingo Award for Best New Slot Game.
Since then, the company has concentrated on expanding its global reach, and experimenting with the basic Slingo format to add new twists to gameplay and extra bonus features.
This great game combines classic Slingo action with the amazing bonus features that have made Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches slot such a classic. There’s the Wishing Well, the Cash Crop, Magic Toadstool and Road to Riches round all waiting to trigger as slingos are marked off on the 5x5 grid.
This adds a great Wheel of Fortune bonus round to gameplay. Once the initial spins are used up, and after they've formed three Slingos, players can choose to play on, end the game and collect their winnings, or exchange them for a spin on the Big Wheel . This is divided into ten sections, nine with multiplier values, which get higher the further up the pay ladder the player is. Trigger the wheel with three Slingos, and the multipliers on offer are between 0.5 x and 10 x the bet. Spinning the Wheel after getting a Full House could win between 100 x and 2500 x the initial bet.
Slingo Deadliest Catch is themed on Discovery Channel's series of the same name. Complete five slingos for a chance to join your favourite crews in the search for crab and a big pay day in the icy Bering Straits. Once they have five Slingos, players get to play a great mini-game for bet multiplier prizes when they decide to end the Slingo game. There are three of these, each available first in a daylight version, and then as the player gets higher up the pay ladder, a night fishing version with bigger potential wins.
The Book of concept is hot in slots right now, with Realistic, Ygdrassil, Pragmatic Play all releasing slots based around the concept of a Book Wild/Scatter, and expanding symbols in the Free Spins. But how did Slingo Originals turn this into a Slingo game? Easy, they added a Book Scatter to the Sling 5x1 reel set, and when three or more land, they trigger a separate Book of Free Spins round as a mini-slot game!
