Torn between bingo and slots? Now there’s no need to choose. For the best of both worlds, try Slingo: this ultimate combination game has become increasingly popular in recent years, and appears on a number of different bingo and casino sites.

But where better to play than on a site so dedicated to the very game, that both its name and entire theme were inspired by it?

Welcome bonus package

50 free spins at Slingo

Ever heard the expression that ‘nothing in life is free’? Well, that’s not strictly true.

At Slingo, you can claim one stage of the welcome bonus without spending a single penny! Simply add a credit or debit card to your account to claim your reward – which could be one of 3 things. Most likely, you’ll be getting the 50 free spins, though signing up through different promotions may provide you with an alternative prize.

Then, of course, you are likely to want to spend on site at some point. Not least because Slingo is so addictive. And when you do, Slingo will give you even more: deposit at least £10 and you’ll receive a 100% bonus on anything up to £100! You must make the payment through certain specified means: debit and credit card deposits are both eligible, or you can check out our pay by mobile guide to get the lowdown on another easy method.

A 100% bonus may not seem hugely generous, but remember, it’s only one stage of the welcome package. It’s also worth being aware that prices on site are very reasonable anyway, so you’ll be spending less on your games overall.

Make sure you sign up through BingoPort, where you’ll receive tonnes of Port Points – see what you can spend them on in our rewards store.

Pros

  • Get part of the welcome bonus without spending a penny
  • Huge selection of games
  • Impressive VIP benefits

Cons

  • We’d love to see more promotions
  • Few banking options available

Bottom Line

This is a hugely fun brand that does a great job looking after its players; we’re particularly impressed with the variety of games on offer, Slingo’s loyalty rewards and the refreshing simplicity of the site.

 

In depth

Banking

Placing Deposits

While many sites have a whole range of banking methods available, Slingo have decided to accept only 3 of the most popular:

  • Debit card
  • Credit card
  • Pay by mobile phone

Making Withdrawals

Withdrawals are provided by bank transfer, so the money goes straight into your account. The more you play, the quicker you can access funds: VIPs benefit from ‘priority’ withdrawals, while for VIP Platinum members, this is upgraded to ‘express’.

 

Games  

The site might be named after one particular game, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a wealth of variety available on site. Not only is Slingo on offer, but you’ll also find a full range of slots, casino games and instant win jackpots.  

Slingo

Like bingo, but better – because it’s quicker, more exhilarating and fulfills your slot obsession (after all, even the weirdest slot games are great fun) all at the same time.

Just like bingo, you’ll start with a grid. Instead of a bingo caller however, your fate is determined by a series of spins. If any of the numbers that appear on each spin correspond with those on your grid, they’ll be marked off. You get to call ‘Slingo’ when 5 squares in a row have been struck – vertically, horizontally or even diagonally. For an extra adrenaline rush, some games specify a particular line or pattern that must be completed.

Slingo.com have developed the game into a must-play. From Slingo Boom – the multiplayer extravaganza, where you can chat as you watch the communal reels – to Slingo Extreme – a super-quick version of the game, with a massive £50,000 jackpot and 11 chances to spin – there really is something for everyone.

Deal or no deal slingo

Deal or No Deal Slingo is a particular favourite of ours. Just like in the TV show, you first pick from 26 red boxes. The remaining boxes form your grid, and from there you start to spin.

4 ‘Slingos’ will unlock the Banker’s offer. Should you accept the offer, the game will automatically end. Opt for ‘No Deal’ to open your own box, or gamble on the remaining boxes by continuing to spin. After all, 5 or more ‘Slingos’ will increase your multipliers. With a jackpot of up to £100,000 it’s all to play for – will you beat the Banker?

Slots

We know as well as anyone that when you’ve done some spinning, you’ll want to do more. And for the record, we’re definitely not talking about the ultra high intensity workout performed on an exercise bike. No, what we mean is slots. Slingo may have whetted your appetite, but if you can’t get enough of the rush, there’s a whole myriad of other slot games to try out.

On Slingo, you’ll find you’re spoilt for choice– there are just so many different variants to look through! But don’t forget that part of the welcome offer is 50 free spins, which will allow you to try out a good number of the games without spending a penny.

Once you have the feel of the themes, play with cash to join cowboys in the Wild West in Dead or Alive, kick ‘some serious super-villain butt’ with Agent Jane Blonde, or see what Ancient Egypt has in store with all-time classic, Cleopatra. If you’re a cat lover, you can even enjoy furry fun by playing Kitty Glitter – and remember to check out our blog for more cute kitties.

Casino

It seems Slingo has it all: not only are there are all the traditional casino games you’d expect on a site of this calibre (blackjack, roulette and poker), there are also fun variations to keep things fresh. With 3 Wheel Roulette, you’ve got 3 times the chance to win, each and every time you spin. Or, if you’re feeling especially bonkers, try out Ten Play Video Poker. 9 poker tables and the option to play multiple hands at once… this game is sure to keep you on your toes.

Instant Win

If you’re in need of a quick boost, head to the Instant Win section of the site. There’s Keno, the fantastic matching game – simply choose 8 numbers, then hit ‘Draw’. All you need is for 3 of your numbers to come up, and you’ve bagged yourself a prize. Or, if you’re going for a really big win, dig for treasure with Diamond Red – there’s up to £150,000 up for grabs!

Bubble Bingo

And great news for bingo purists: Slingo hasn’t forgotten you! Bubble Bingo gives the game an underwater vibe – when the bubble machine starts spitting out numbers, complete any one of the patterns shown to win. And if ‘instant’ isn’t quick enough for you, you can always set your fins going on ‘TURBO’ speed.

 

Promotions

Slingo’s promotion selection is limited, but it’s still worth taking advantage of those offers that are available. Alongside the 2-stage welcome bonus, there is also a Slingo Boom party room: enter to play for free. Games start every 15 minutes between 8am and 8pm – you could play all day if you wanted! But hurry, this offer is on for a limited time only (although we’re sure it’ll be replaced with another promotion when it goes).

Performance

With fast loading times and high quality game development, you can expect a largely glitch-free playing experience: every player’s dream. The site is extremely well designed; whether you’re tech-savvy, or just getting started, you’ll find it easy to navigate and enjoy.

Mobile

When it comes to playing on mobile, there’s no denying the quality of this site. And don’t just take our word for it: Gaming Realms – the company who built and run slingo.com – recently won in the Mobile Casino Product category at the EGR 2016 Operator Awards. The prize goes to the company who have developed the most innovative products and made the biggest impact on mobile e-gaming in the previous 12 months. In other words, they know what they’re doing!

To take full advantage of Gaming Realms’ expertise, it’s well worth heading to the mobile version of the site. Simply log into your Slingo account as usual and you’ll find all your favourites: speciality Slingo, casino games and all the slots you could ever desire.

Extra features

VIP Scheme

Join the exclusive VIP club

Play like a VIP; get treated like a VIP – that’s how things work at Slingo. There are 2 stages to the scheme: VIP and VIP Platinum. Your level depends on the amount you deposit and spend on site each week, so, even if you’ve had a bit of a break, you can still progress back to VIP status very quickly.

The good folk at Slingo will let you know as soon as you’re part of the club, whereupon you’ll be rewarded with bonus cashback (10%), priority withdrawals and VIP support staff, ready to answer every question and solve every issue.

And if that sounds great, it gets even better when you hit Platinum. You can tell it’s exclusive when you have to receive a special invitation just to join the party. Then there are the benefits: real cashback; express withdrawals; events to attend; a dedicated VIP account manager; even a birthday gift!

At both levels, too, there are special promotions available. And when you find out what promotion winners have recently received – Adele tickets; a day at the races; a top-of the range iPad air – you realise just how serious Slingo is about keeping their customers happy.

 

Final comments

The site may be fairly new (it was only launched in 2016) but it is already making quite an impact in the bingo and gaming world. With a huge selection of games on offer, and experts Gaming Realms behind the development, it’s been a very exciting few months for Slingo – and we’re sure there’s more to come!

Although we’d love to see a few more promotions (we’re promised that these are in the pipeline), we’re thrilled with the perks already available on site, just as soon as you hit VIP level.

All in all, we’re happy to report that Slingo is a site we can thoroughly recommend.
