Slingo Bingo's origins are the USA, but in recently it has been warmly embraced on the 'other side of the pond'. Instead of the reels spinning symbols, it spins numbers. When they match those listed on your Slingo card above, you can mark them off on your way to creating Slingos that can help you bag instant prizes.
How do you play Slingo?
The goal in Slingo is mostly the same as Bingo, but with the added excitement of slot-style reels determining the outcome of your game. You will be given a predetermined number of spins of the reels for your Slingo game. During these spins, you must attempt to mark off as many numbers as possible to create Slingos in horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines.
You'll find other symbols on the Slingo reels than just numbers. These can help to enhance or minimise your ability to create new Slingos. At the end of your allotted spins, it may be possible to buy an additional cluster of spins, which can be useful if you are close to completing the entire grid for the top prizes.

The main symbols you will find on the reels of a Slingo game are Bingo numbers. However, there are plenty more symbols that can work in your favour - and against you. Joker and Super Joker symbols are two of the most common symbols.
Whenever a Joker appears, you can choose to mark off any number on the column it lands. Whenever a Super Joker appears, you can mark off any number on the entire grid. Devil symbols are the biggest pain in the backside. They act as blockers, effectively stopping you from creating more Slingos or landing additional free spins.
