It’s unlikely that there’s anyone who hasn’t heard of Britain’s Got Talent. Millions tune in every year to watch the best, and the worst, perform and it’s always proven to be entertaining.
The show is so popular that it’s no surprise there’s a Slingo game based on this popular franchise. For those of you who have never played ‘Slingo’, it’s a unique combination of Slots and Bingo.
It’s an unusual concept to get your head around but once you get into it, it’s great fun.
How Do You Play Slingo?
So imagine a bingo game that you actually have some control over. In this Slingo game you are presented with a bingo-style card. There are five rows of five numbers. The idea of the game is to get as many lines completed as possible.
The more lines you fill, the higher up the paytable you go, and the more money you win.
In the Jackpotjoy version, you can play for as little as 10p per game. For that, you get 11 spins and a maximum payout of £20 for a full house. If you want to play for more, you can buy a card for a maximum £2 and that has a Full House payout of £400.
You start the game by hitting the ‘spin’ button. A series of five numbers appear under the card. If you have any of them they are automatically ticked off the card. You can have multiple numbers match your card on every spin.
The more numbers you get, the faster the lines fill and the more cash you win.
It’s pretty tricky to complete the card with just the spins alone. That’s why the ‘Joker’ is your new best friend. When he appears you get to decide which numbers you want to tick off your card. This is excellent as it allows you to complete lines and win more.
There are also Slingo scatter symbols which will automatically give you a payout if enough of them appear.
As an additional bonus, there is the ‘Free Spin’ ball. Once that appears it gives you an additional spin once your first 11 spins have been completed.
Themed games like Slingo are really fun and unique games to play. That’s mostly because of the control you have over the game. Slots and Bingo on their own are all about luck. However, with Slingo, there is an element of skill so if you select the right numbers you can start filling the card pretty quickly.
Lines can be completed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. This means you have 11 to complete in total. Plus, if you are feeling lucky, you can buy an additional spin. You can only do this once and then the game is over.
Hopefully you will have spun your way to a decent win. So if you want all the fun of slots and bingo, try Slingo. The game is much better value than a regular slot and lasts a lot longer too. The game is many different themes and Britain’s Got Talent is just one of them. However, they are all played the same way so it doesn’t matter which version you pick.
