Slingo game – a classic people have been playing for the last ten years – is the game where slots meets Bingo, from there its name “Slingo”. The goal is to match the numbers and try to get Slingos (5 matches in a row). What you see in the screen is a combination of a slot machine and a bingo’s card. On the top section you see a matrix of numbers, composed of 5 columns and five rows, resulting in 25 numbers you need to match. In the bottom section you see the spinning numbers and the spinning level on a side.
You have to spin the numbers and wait for them to stop to see what you got. Then, you have to click on the correct numbers on the card, if you’ve got any matches. The numbers on the bottom will only match the column they are under, which simplifies looking up for the matches. If you get a Joker, then you can match it to any number in its column.
On the top right corner of the screen you’ll see your score. If you make matches quickly, you can get a speed bonus. The faster you are, the more bonus points you will get. You have a limited amount of spins to complete the card. Right below of the score display, you can see how many spins you have used. You start with 20 spins per game.
Every once in a while you’ll find a powerups, which will be shown on the right side of the screen. Powerups are special “skills” or “possibilities” you get to use in the game. For example you can get a “Free spin” powerup, which you will want to use in the final spins when you have to pay to play.
