Every now and then something different comes along and it hopes to revolutionise the popular bingo game. Over recent years we’ve seen things like social bingo, quiz bingo, bingo with levels and even some raunchiness. Most have struggled and others have failed as ultimately nothing really can detract away from the standard 90 ball game. That doesn’t stop others trying though and the latest hoping to take on the challenge is Slingo Boom Bingo.
Those of you who frequent slot sites may already have heard of Slingo. It’s a slots meets bingo game that originated as a Facebook app. Over time it’s become a paying game on sites such as Spin Genie and Pocket Fruity. In 2015 a Slingo site was launched and this year a new bingo product – Slingo Boom – was launched. The difference between Slingo Boom and other variants of the game is that Boom is multiplayer.
Slots Meets Bingo
This means you can enjoy the Slingo experience whilst playing against others. The game plays pretty much as a bingo one – you have a card, numbers are called and the aim is to get one line or a full house before the other players. The difference is how the numbers are called – they’re rolled like a slot machine. So each round offers up five numbers and these can be crossed off on your card.
The good thing about Slingo Boom Bingo is now you can try it for free. Just register at Slingo, go to the bingo section and select the free room. No deposit is needed! You can play as much as you like too. However should you like what you find then there’s a paying room available as well. New players are welcomed with a £5 no deposit bonus to play Slingo Rainbow Riches and a 300% first deposit bonus.
Pigasus To Jimi Hendrix
The down side is that Slingo only has Slingo Boom in it’s bingo locker. So if it’s not for you then that leaves only slots to enjoy at the site. It’s a decent enough game but the player numbers are limited and that effects jackpots etc. Hopefully Boom will expand further and more games added so that it becomes a lot more attractive.
Away from the bingo offering, Slingo.com does offer a massive selection of top slots and exclusive games. Top games include Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Cleopatra, Pay Of The Dead, Twin Spin, Fluffy Favourites, Pigasus and Jimi Hendrix. On the downside the site can be quite slow and clunky at times. There’s also limited payment options although you can pay by mobile.
If you’re looking for an alternative to bingo then Slingo Boom is ideal plus Slingo.com is a decent destination for interested slots players. We’d love to see traditional bingo rooms added to the mix but suspect that the owners are deliberately staying away from this option.
