Lottomart is proud to announce yet another addition to our rapidly-expanding portfolio: Gaming Realms’ catalogue of Slingo Bingo slots!
Gaming Realms has become a prominent name in the world of digital gaming thanks to its distinctive and unique series of online Slingo slots that showcase gorgeous graphical presentations and themes, as well as the amalgamation of bingo and slot mechanics to create the ultimate gaming hybrid taking the online casino world by storm!
A Brief History of Slingo
Slingo is the brainchild of Sal Falciglia from New Jersey. Around three decades ago, he had the idea to fuse bingo and slots into one unique and exciting game type, and the first Slingo game was created using a vintage Mexican peso slot machine; Sal replaced symbols with bingo balls, introducing Joker and Devil symbols to the mix. Slingo debuted on AOL in the mid-90s as a single-player browser game. In 1999, Dave Lyons joined Sal to launch the first Slingo slot machine, expanding its presence on online gaming portals. Slingo’s evolution continued with scratch lotto tickets via Scientific Games in 2001 and Slingo.com in 2002, featuring multiplayer options and themed Slingo slots.
Mobile gaming and social media bolstered Slingo’s popularity, with mobile versions and Facebook integration drawing a broader audience. The game’s licensing to Zynga in 2003 led to Zynga Slingo’s success on Facebook in 2012. RealNetworks later acquired Slingo, now owned by Gaming Realms. You can read more about the fascinating history of the game in our History of Slingo Slot Games blog post.
How Slingo Slot Games Work
Sal was a visionary in many ways. He was the first to realise it might be possible to combine bingo and slot games to create a revolutionary new casino game. Time has seen the vindication of his vision, as Slingo slots have risen to become some of the most distinct and popular games in the iGaming industry. In fact, Slingo offers 40+ unique games, including branded versions of online slots, TV shows, and more, showcasing its timeless adaptability and enduring appeal.
Slingo games fuse the best elements of bingo and slot games. The main game grid features a 5×5 layout comprising 25 numbers from a pool of 1 – 75, like bingo. A horizontal reel sits below the grid. Spinning the reel is similar to how it works in traditional slot games. However, the impetus is slightly different: players spin the reel to get a number rather than land a winning combination. It gets marked off should it match any number in the 5×5 grid. The ultimate goal is to create horizontal, vertical, or diagonal lines of marked-off numbers as in a traditional bingo game. These are called win lines or Slingos, and players have a limited number of spins (usually 10 – 20) to trigger them. In any case, the higher the number of Slingos, the higher the potential cash prizes are, plus the more chances players have of triggering other bonuses.
Popular Slingo Slot Games
Gaming Realms has created many popular Slingo slot games, sometimes with developers like NetEnt and Inspired Gaming. This has resulted in titles like Slingo Starburst and Slingo Centurion, and nothing has been lost in translation in terms of visual flair and engaging gameplay mechanics.
Some of Gaming Realms’ other popular Slingo titles include Slingo Stampede and Slingone Fishin’. The former features a sumptuous safari-themed visual presentation and not one but three horizontal reels. This means players have more chances of potentially matching numbers (albeit with fewer spins to balance things out). The latter presents a kinetic fishing-themed presentation complete with floating bubbles, swaying coral reefs and a boat getting tossed about the surface of a rough sea.
The above titles are a small sample of all the Slingo slots we host on our website. We have ‘1500+ Games Now Available At Lottomart‘, all of which present their own distinct themes, gameplay formats and bonus elements. Suffice it to say that just like online slots, we have Slingo games that encompass every conceivable theme and genre and offer fun and exciting gameplay mechanics.
