Slingo games have grid arrangement of five horizontal and five vertical lines. There are 25 grids in the square and with it, a total of 12 win-lines. The game belongs to the good old family of slingo – a combination of bingo and slots, and that means, each buy-in plays on all 12 win-lines.
The bets in any slingo game are configured before the start of each individual ticket game. Because each spin doesn’t require a bet, the game’s 11 spins come with the purchase of one sling “ticket”. The smallest bet is £0.10 and the biggest bet is £100.00, but there are many amounts that exist between these two, which can avail both a low-cost fun on the reels and a high-stakes game. Whatever the price of the game, the 12 lines are always active and the players get a total of 11 spins, with the option for extra spins.
All of the slingo action starts with the push of the Spin button. This button needs to be pressed for every release of a bingo ball, which will spin the five reels on that one row below the grid, and the numbers will post on the grid if they match.
Slingo is a combination of slots and bingo, but unlike slots, it does not have the autoplay function. Slots have because there all of the turns and symbol combinations are automated, but in slingo the player is required to select a square on the grid when the joker or syper joker symbols end up on the reels. Because of this reason the Spin button is the only one that causes the numbers to appear on the single row of reels.
Slingo games do have a paytable. It is usually located in the top of the screen, behind the ‘i’ icon. The paytable explains the game’s rules, displays the paylines and the slingo win amounts, so basically those who are new to slingo can get all of the instructions in the few pages of the paytable. On the main display, there is a column on the left-hand side which shows all of the line wins, in relation to the bet, so the players know the potential prize for their Love Island slingo endeavor.
The game’s bonus features come in the form of special symbols. These are the wild which is the joker and the free spin coins. Love Island Slingo has six slots for the free spins coins, meaning, if the player gets that many coins there are going to be the equal number of spins once the regular spins have been expanded.
The joker-wild is quite a useful thing to occur because it allows the player to choose which grid is to be checked, from a selection of grids that is offered by the game. In the event, those squares will be highlighted so the players knows where to dedicate the wild.
