Slingo Originals was looking to turn up the heat on the classic slot and bingo mashup, and that’s what it did, literally. The developer has added a flaming fire element to the game whereby the reels catch alight. It features faster gameplay, more free spins, increased jackpots and instant cash prizes.
The background is a hot red colour. To complement the atmosphere, a rock and roll soundtrack with electric guitar strings plays in the background as you make your way through the grid.
To begin spinning the reels and matching numbers, you have to place your bet. Players can stake between £0.50 and £100, and a new round starts you off with 11 spins.
The grid setup is 5×5, with a single row of five reels attached below. Matching numbers on the grid columns to numbers on the reels will mark them off and lead you one step closer to completing a Slingo line. The paytable to the left will show you how much you’re winning with each line formed. The full house caps the potential payouts – at max bet, this is £50,000.
The boy jester is the game’s logo, and he looks both sinister and childish. A Super Joker, a devil, a free spin symbol, and a stack of coins can also land on the reels, and each one offers a unique perk. The Return to Player rate is 95%, which isn’t bad for a Slingo game. As usual, there are 12 ways to win: five horizontal, five vertical and two diagonal.
Joker – This symbol is the wild and allows you to mark any number in the column above the reel where it lands.
Super Joker – With a Super Joker, you can mark any number in the whole grid.
Stack of Coins – These will award an instant cash prize, and it only lands on the middle reel.
Devil Symbol – This is a blocking symbol and prevents you from matching numbers on the column where it lands. Its occurrence is also limited to the middle reel.
Free Spins Symbol – These will award a free spin, and free spins are collected in a field above the spin.
On Slingo Extreme, you can buy free spins at the end of the round. There is a maximum of eight free spins available per round. Therefore, the number of freebies won during the base game will determine the number of free spins you can buy later on. Free spin symbols are not available during extra spins.
Instant cash prizes are also triggered when three or more jokers land on the same spin. One or more Super Jokers will award larger amounts.
This is an upgrade to the original Slingo game with a fiery infusion. It’s a fun idea and very engaging when you get into it. An inclusive betting range, a decent RTP and a good number of bonus elements make it an even more exciting option to try out. The Slingo Extreme demo is available to play for free if you want to check out the game.
