We’ve discovered another Slingo casino game, and as an online bingo site, we must admit that these games come with a great deal of excitement. Why is this so? Well, Slingo is a game that mixes online slots and bingo, giving iGamers something to deliver interactive thrills, with potentially big rewards. Slingo Fortunes is another in the series, and unlike the others, there's an element of accepting an offer or continuing on for what could be the chance of much bigger prizes, or possibly some disappointment.
You might have seen some Slingo titles at our bingo site previously, such as Slingo Big Wheel or Slingo Showdown. Most use the same concept of a main 5x5 grid hosting 25 random numbers, and a spinning row below that reveals numbers at random that need to match the numbers in the grid above. Just like in bingo, you need to match as many numbers as possible for rewards to start flowing in. Slingo Fortunes has some differences, such as a Chinese theme, plus a few choices you'll have to make during gameplay, but more on that later.
A round of Slingo Fortunes will require you to decide what to stake, with your options starting at a minimum of 0.02 per round all the way up to 100 per round.
Once the stake size is decided on your round will begin. Before anything happens, however, you'll need to pick one of a screen of envelopes, which the game then stores on the side of the screen for safekeeping, and you do not get to see the contents inside the envelope. After this, you are given ten spins of the spinning row. During these ten spins, you'll want as many numbers to match, with the goal to clear as many numbers off the grid to create full vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines as possible. Clearing a full line of numbers is called a 'Slingo’.
Once you hit 4 Slingos, you'll be given a cash offer as a prize, offered the cash amount in the envelope (which will be a complete surprise), or continue playing for possible bigger returns.
The spinning row can also reveal jokers, super jokers and free spin symbols. Jokers mean you can choose a number in the reel above to mark off, super jokers allow you to mark off any number on the entire grid and a Free Spin awards an extra spin.
If you opt to open the envelope, it might be a fantastic reward, or something very disappointing, so with three choices to make when you hit 4 Slingos, the thrills really start coming in.
If you continue playing and manage to clear every number on the grid, the cash in the envelope will be awarded to you regardless.
How does Slingo Fortunes measure up against the others we’ve seen in our time? We’d place it somewhere in the middle, with Slingo Big Wheel being one that ticked a few more boxes in our book. This one adds too much extra clutter with the choices you’ll need to make, although iGamers with a love for interactivity are likely to be in their element.
