Gaming Realms have just released a new version of Slingo entitled Slingo Boom!Gaming Realms have just released a new version of Slingo entitled Slingo Boom!One Slingo is worth 20p, two is worth 30p and a coverall will be rewarded with 50p. The prize money isn’t anything to celebrate right now, but there’s sure to be more on offer once the Pay To Play version is available.
Slingo has an interesting ownership history considering it’s often a free game. Back in July 2015, Gaming Realms bought Slingo from RealNetworks for $18 million. RealNetworks had purchased the game just two years earlier in August 2013 for $15.6 million. After acquiring Slingo, Gaming Realms placed it on Spin Genie where players were able to win cash prizes. Almost immediately, Slingo Extreme was released. This version was quicker than it’s predecessor and had twice the amount of balls, with eight instead of the original four found in the original Slingo game.
In addition to Slingo Extreme and Slingo Boom, there’s also Slingo Deal Or No Deal, known as Slingo DOND. Here, the original Slingo board has been replaced with the 25 Deal Or No Deal boxes. Like contestants on the show, you begin by picking a lucky box and proceed to have ten draws with five number reveals each. If a number matches another in any of the five columns, that correlating box will open and remove a prize amount from the side columns. Once your ten draws are up, you have the option to buy unlimited spins, you can take the Banker’s offer or open your chosen box to see if you got three Slingos.
