How to play
Getting started in a game of Slingo is as easy and exciting as enjoying a night out at the circus. Players only need a ticket to the show to enjoy the experience. Initially, players will have to decide on just how valuable their ticket should be. This is determined by both activating play numbers and the value of each number activated.
First, activate play numbers by clicking the “+” and “-” symbols under the “plays” heading. Players are able to activate numbers in increments of five. The available options are then five, 10 15 play numbers active on any single ticket. Activating more numbers will cost more, but also lead to more opportunities to win a cash prize during any round of play. After that, players will need to determine the value of each play number. This can be done using the “+” and “-” symbols under the “amount per play” heading to raise and lower the value respectively. In this situation, the raising amount will increase the player’s investment, but it will also increase the size of the payouts.
That’s all there is to do in terms of preparation. All that’s left is to click the play button to get things started. Players can reveal each winning number and each play number one at a time by clicking or tapping the symbol position. Alternatively, players can opt to reveal all numbers at once using the reveal all button. Auto play is a unique game mode that players can take advantage of when they want to play several games without having to reveal numbers manually. Auto play provides for up to 20 hands-free rounds of play.
Slingo’s bonus features are some of the game’s most attractive aspects to players.
- Pirate bonus — When the pirate symbol is revealed on a ticket, this bonus feature is unlocked. The pirate bonus will present players with a field of five treasure chests, of which they can choose one for an instant prize.
- Toucan bonus — A veritable wheel of good fortune, players revealing a toucan symbol on their ticket can spin the bonus round’s prize wheel to receive whichever prize the wheel provides when it comes to a stop.
- Joker bonus — Similar to the toucan bonus, the joker bonus prompts players to spin a prize wheel that awards benefits that can fill the pockets of anyone fortunate enough to uncover this unique symbol on their game ticket.
There are six amount per play values to choose from when raising or lowering your ticket value. Ranging from $0.05 to $2, these options accommodate players with bankrolls both big and small. It is important to note that players must also designate a number of numbers to activate on each ticket. This will impact the overall ticket value.
