Slingo Riches Slot Review
Earlier in the year we told you about a new site called Spin Genie. This is the flagship brand of Gaming Realms and it offers players a good mix of slots to enjoy. The site also hosts a game called Slingo. Slingo's origins are as a social media game that combines the best of slots with bingo. Spin Genie have taken that game and created a version where you can play for real cash.
How To Play Slingo Riches
The video below shows you how to play Slingo Riches. It's pretty easy too! The aim of the game is to fill your bingo board. Each game has 11 spins and each spin generates number which hopefully get marked off on your board. At the end of the spins any lines that you have created will win you a prize. The more lines the bigger the prize - look out for wilds and free spins during the game to help you.
Slingo Riches can be played from between 50p to £100 a game. The more you wager the higher the potential jackpot. For example at 50p the full house prize is £100 whilst a £100 wager could bank you £20,000! You must have to be a very happy high roller to play that amount. One thing to consider with Slingo is that it can cost you a lot more than your initial wager.
Slingo Riches Strategy
At the end of the 11 spins you're invited to play on for the chance to possibly win more Slingos. An extra spin will cost a few more pennies (or even pounds). You're offered the opportunity to spin on for a few more turns to see if you can fill up your board. We found that it was often better just to collect the winnings and play for another round. If you have picked up free spins then the number of extra paid rounds are reduced by the number of freebies you have earnt.
The game is good fun and mixes bingo and slots very well. There's even a bit of strategy thrown in when it comes to deciding where to place your wild joker numbers. On the downside we found the game was a bit temperamental and had to reload a number of times during play. The good news was that the game wasn't lost but it does suggest a flaky system.
Slingo Riches was fun to play but at no point did we feel that we'd beat the casino. In other words you just know that your money will erode a way and that the chances of banking the big prizes are limited - we didn't manage to achieve more than half a dozen lines. However you do get a lot of game play for your money and it does make a change from the traditional bingo games and online slots.
Since our original review the number of Slingo variations has increased considerably. There's now versions of Deal Or No Deal, The X Factor and even Love Island. The game is also no longer confinded to just Spin Genie, Slingo.com and their sister sites. You'll find Slingo available on Dragonfish and Playtech powered slots and bingo brands.
