Slingo Fluffy Favourites – which is hot off the press this week at all your favourite bingo sites – is a mash-up of two of the most successful and popular series of games in the history of iGaming – Slingo and Fluffy Favourites.
Slingo is basically the bastard child of 75 ball bingo and a slot machine. You start with 10 spins and the aim is to mark off numbers on a 5×5 game card to complete lines – known as “Slingos”. If you aren’t happy with your score after the initial 10 spins you can attempt to improve it by buying extra spins (the price of which depends on what you stand to win).
Fluffy Favourites is, of course, the iconic series of slot games by Eyecon featuring everyone’s favourite pink elephant and a supporting cast of cuddly toys (none of which we’re allowed to show you as advertising regulations state that they have to be kept away from the eyes of under 18s). As well as the original Fluffy, there’s Fluffy Too, Fluffy Fairground, Fluffy In Space and all come in regular and progressive jackpot versions.
As mash-ups do, this one has been done really well, very much in the style of that earlier and extremely successful mash-up of Slingo and Rainbow Riches. That’s not the only thing it has in common with the earlier game, either; in many Slingo games, you win cash prizes based on the number of Slingos completed, but in Slingo Fluffy Favourites (as in Slingo Rainbow Riches) you have to complete 5 or more Slingos to win anything at all (not something that happens often without buying extra spins), and all of the prizes are bonus rounds inspired by the slot games. There’s Toybox Pick, Coin Pusher, Hook-A-Fluffy, Super Toybox Pick, Super Coin Pusher, Super Hook-A-Fluffy and Mega Toybox Pick. All these bonus rounds are pick-me style; in the Super versions you get many more picks and Mega Toybox Pick is the Super version with a 5x multiplier.
The theming permeates the base game as well as the bonus rounds; the Super Joker which enables any square on the board to be marked off is replaced by the Wild symbol from the games – Nellie the infamous pink elephant. Nellie is animated and does the cheeky twerking dance first seen in Fluffy Too. 3, 4 or 5 Nellies on the same spin awards an extra bonus feature – 5, 7 or 10 extra balls. (If you win or buy extra spins, Nellie reverts to the regular Super Joker symbol).
Slingo Fluffy Favourites has RTP of 95.3% and the minimum stake is 20p. Each extra spin you buy has its own RTP of 95% and is priced accordingly; extra spins can often cost a lot more than your original stake.
It’s easy to get carried away with buying extra spins in a game of Slingo, and to guard against this Slingo Fluffy Favourites (like all other Slingo games) has a Play Controls menu where you can set limts on the number and maximum price of extra spins, the maximum single game stake and maximum single game loss.
Where to play it? Well, pretty well anywhere! Slingo games are widely available these days. Depending on how cautious the operator is about games that might appeal to under 18s, though, you may very well not be able to see this game at all until after login.
Nevertheless, some sites are bound to run promotions on this hot new game and this is something that is worth looking out for. For example, Jumpman bingo sites and Jumpman slot sites will jointly be running a prize draw throughout November, and one lucky player will win a 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display (or cash alternative). That’s one player from all Jumpman sites, by the way, not one from each. Players get one entry for each £10 of play on Slingo Fluffy Favourites during November.
