Slingo Boom, or boom bingo as it is also called, was an exotic variant of 75 ball bingo that was only available to play at sites powered by Gaming Realms until it was retired in early 2019. Other versions of Slingo (the ones that are more akin to a slot machine than to bingo) are more widely available and as well as Slingo itself there are Slingo themed slot games and Slingo themed scratchcards.
Slingo is certainly big on entertainment value! In a regular slot game you pay per spin and this can result in spending a lot of money extremely quickly. A game of Slingo lasts for several minutes and (depending on which version of Slingo you are playing) costs from just 50p – if you stick to the initial set of spins plus any free spins you win. Extend the game by buying extra spins, though, and you can easily end up spending much more than your original stake.
One of the most popular Slingo games is Slingo Rainbow Riches. Themed on the UK’s favourite slot machine, the game’s USP is that instead of fixed payouts based on how many Slingos (i.e. fully daubed rows, columns or diagonals) you complete, you win bonus rounds inspired by the slot game. The more Slingos, the better the bonus round you get to play.
