Slingo is a combination of the concepts of slots and bingo, hence we have a bingo tombola and a reel set. The bet per line, in this case, is actually bet per game, and each game has 10 spins. The bets range from £0.50 to £200 per game, with many other bets that are between these two sums.
To select the bet per game, at the start of each game use the left and right arrows located in the bottom left of the game’s surface, right underneath the column that tracks the progress of the slingo game.
There can be 12 win lines on the grid of 25 squares. Each line that could fit this space can also connect for a Slingo win. There are five horizontal lines, five vertical lines and two diagonal lines. These are not selectable, but simply available for the payout whenever they occur, by connecting five numbers that have been marked on the grid.
The game starts with the push of the Start Game button, which is located in the bottom right corner, underneath the tombola. Once the game has started this button is renamed Spin, and it pretty much does the same: the balls in the tombola turn, one ball is selected and five numbers and/or symbols are displayed on the bottom row of five reels.
Some Slingo games have an autospin button but most do not. The reason for this is simply because of the engaging gameplay, where not everything is automated. The jokers allow the players to select on which grid the symbol will be applied, and that removes the possibility of an autospin option being available.
Slingo games do have a paytable, but that depends on the game’s features. Rainbow Riches Slingo has carried over its bonus features from the original slot game. In the paytable the players will discover information about the bonuses, as well as the paylines and how the game is won, that is, its prizes. To access the paytable click or tap the ‘i’ button in the upper right corner of the screen.
The in-game bonuses in the Rainbow Riches Slingo are the joker, the super joker and the free spin token. These are all given at random and there is a possibility that every spin can turn up one of these. The joker lets the player pick one of the squares that have become marked on the grid. The super joker lets the player pick any of the unclaimed squares. The golden token is a single free spins game that gets added inside the bowl.
What is amazing about the Rainbow Riches Slingo is that almost all of the good old bonus features have been brought into the game from the slots version: the toadstool, wishing well, road to riches and pots of gold. What is more, each one comes with the same set of potential prizes – either cash or multipliers or free spins.
