If you've played Slingo games before, Slingo XXXtreme by Slingo Originals will hold no surprises. But if you haven't, you might want to spend some time getting to know the game, as Slingos, in general, are pretty fast-paced and Slingo XXXtrteme even more so.
At the centre of the screen is a 5x5 filled with bingo numbers. Below this is a set of 5x1 reels. These spin, and if the number they land on matches one in the column above, that number is marked off
You can start a game for as little as 0.20 for budget players, all the way up to 100 for the high rollers. This will get you eleven spins to climb as high up the prize ladder located to the left of the screen as you can.
The aim of the game is to climb the prize ladder by marking off the rows of five numbers that cross the grid diagonally, vertically, and horizontally. When a full row is marked off, you’ve completed a Slingo. You need to complete at least four to get a payout, and the more you complete, the higher this will be.
Once your initial 11 spins are done, you can collect your winnings or buy more to go for the big win. Just remember that the closer you get, the more expensive the spins become, so make sure you don't wager more than you can win.
In my opinion, Slingo games owe more to bingo than to slots, and this is reflected in the fact that you’ll see mostly numbers landing on the reels. But there is also that slot element in the special symbols that can land.
For a start, there’s a red Joker. This plays the same role as a Wild in slots, and lets you mark off any number in the column above. There’s also a green Super Joker who lets you mark off any number on the grid. When these land, there is an element of strategy involved in deciding which numbers to mark off, so use them wisely.
There is also a Free Spin symbol that will add one extra spin to your total every time it lands. And lastly, a smug-looking devil who is only there to get in the way and make it harder for you to complete lines.
One of the attractions of Slingo games is their simplicity. Unlike slots, they generally don't feature a lot, if any, bonus rounds, and Slingo XXXtreme is no exception. There is no special feature, and the game earns the XXXtreme title from the sheer speed it plays at, plus the 1000 x the bet top prize, double that of most Slingo games, and its volatility which has been ramped up to high instead of the Sling norm of low to medium.
I found playing Slingo XXXtreme one wild ride, and the thumping soundtrack just adds to the excitement. So check it out for yourself today right here at Gala Casino!
