If you're looking for a bit of the Christmas spirit, Slingo Bells is the Slingo game for you. Referencing the popular Xmas song "Jingle Bells" in its title, this game is all about festive cheer.
Accompanied by a cheerful, Christmassy soundtrack, although not Jingle Bells for some reason, the game is set in a homely living room decked out for the holidays with bells, lights, and stockings. This combines to set the mood and bring thoughts of Santa to your mind, whatever the actual time of year is.
The grid is the usual 5 x 5 affair, complete with bingo numbers. Below this, a reel revolves to reveal new numbers after each spin. Your goal is to mark off the numbers on the rows of the grid when they appear in the corresponding position on the reels below.
Each row you manage to complete counts as a win and will send you up the prize ladder towards bigger and better wins. Bets start at 0.20 and go all the way up to 100.00. There are 12 paylines in total, and prizes go from 1 x your stake to an impressive 1,000 x your stake. Slingo Bells has a theoretical RTP of 95%.
While it's mostly numbers that you'll see on the reels, a few special symbols will pop up from time to time to spice up the game a bit.
First, there's the Present symbol. This acts as a Wild, and when you see it, you can mark off any of the numbers in the row above to help complete a win line.
Of course, Santa has to put in an appearance at some stage. And when he does, he acts as a Super Wild. This allows you to mark off a number anywhere on the grid.
There’s also a coin symbol that can pop up on the central wheel only. This won’t help you mark off any numbers but will give you a nice little instant cash prize of 5 times your bet.
Another symbol that can appear on the central reel only is the Free Spins symbol. When this lands, you’ll get one additional spin at no extra cost.
And finally, there's the X symbol. These are not something you want to see too much of, as they act as blockers with no other purpose than to stop you from completing a pay line.
If you land three or more Wilds or Super Wilds, which are the Present and the Santa symbol, anywhere on the reels, you'll get an extra cash prize. Three earns you 0.5 x your bet, four will get you 2 x, and five will award you with a 5 x multiplier of your stake.
Every Slingo you score will increase the multiplier on your next win, and if you manage to get a full house, the payout is 1,000 x your stake.
If you finish your spins before you've managed to rack up enough wins to keep you happy, you can always choose to purchase additional ones. The cost will depend on where you are on the price ladder and the positions left on your grid. The number of extra spins you can buy is unlimited.
The price per extra spin will be displayed on the Spin button. If you decide that enough is enough, just hit Collect to end the round and collect your winnings.
