Slingo is becoming more and more popular every day. And when you take Slingo Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for a spin, you'll understand why. It's an exhilarating game with non-stop action that will leave you panting, trying to keep up.
The layout is very straightforward and functional. There's the usual 5 x 5 game board covered in numbers. This is surrounded by balloons with question marks connected to the win lines. Complete one of these, and the question marks will fade to reveal a special prize, all related to the Who Wants to be a Millionaire theme. A table on the right of the game board shows the value of these prizes.
The action on Slingo games is fast, so you need to keep on your toes. Just choose your stake and hit the Start Game button. This will give you nine automatic spins to try and complete as many paylines as possible. There are a total of 12 running horizontally, vertically and diagonally across the board.
One row of five reels is located at the bottom of the board. These spin to reveal numbers or
feature symbols, more about those later, and if the number on one of the reels matches one in the row above it, that position is marked off. Once your initial spins are over, you can always buy more to try and hit the big wins, or simply collect your winnings.
Slot players might be a little disappointed with the RTP, which is 93%, but the medium volatility of the game makes up for this. Even though the top prize is a huge 10,000 x your stake, it is very hard to land. This leaves plenty of room for smaller prizes to be paid out, even with a low theoretical RTP.
As well as numbers, there are some other symbols that will land on the reels to add an extra edge to the gameplay. Unlike slots, though, not all of these are good.
First, there's the Joker, and one look at this cheerful clown figure, and you know he's one of the good guys. He acts as the Wild and will help you cover lines quicker by substituting for numbers in the row above his position on the reels.
Every plus one symbol that lands will give you one extra free spin once your initial nine are over.
The blocker symbol can land instead of a number and stop you from completing a row.
Once all the numbers on a payline are marked off, the mystery symbol attached to that payline will reveal a prize. This will be highlighted in the list at the side of the grid. To win it, though, you need to uncover three of the same symbols.
The top prize is an incredible 10,000 x your stake, but to claim this, you'll need to uncover three of the Game Logo symbols. This can't be done unless you're playing at the maximum bet value, and you mark off all the numbers on the board in just nine spins.
Free Spins are won whenever you land a +1 symbol. To the right of the game board, there's a bar which holds little green balls representing your remaining spins. For each +1 symbol you land, an extra white ball is added to this bar. Free Spins are played after your nine original ones have been played.
When you've worked your way through your nine spins and any additional free ones you might have won, you can buy Extra Spins. There's no limit to these, but they will get increasingly expensive as you fill-up the board.
Slingo Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is a fast-paced, entertaining game. It uses the familiar sounds and symbols from the TV show, but, thankfully, you don't need to be a master of trivia to win!
