First found in bars and pubs, the humble slot machine has evolved with the changes in both the technological and digital world we live in, to now become available at the touch of a button and a tap of an app.
If anything, evolving onto a digital platform has revitalized the slot world, giving it a new leash of life. And with that, has come a revolving door of new players every day, helping the Slots section within online casino platforms take up around 70% of the virtual floor.
With each loading up of the virtual casino floor, players are presented with various themes and game settings – including the likes of space travel, time travel, food, countries, lost worlds, animals, shops, television game shows and dramas, Wild West and even hobbies such as fishing – just to name a few!
So, whether you’re into living out your gameshow dreams via the Slots or want to virtually travel back in time to the Ice age or ancient Egypt, the Slots world allows you to do just that – but what do Slots consist of?
In every slot game, you’ll find a set of reels and rows that spin symbols into play. It’s here where you’ll need to spin in the perfect combination of symbols to unlock the prizes hidden within the game. There isn’t a set number of reels you’ll find for each game, as this varies from game to game. Some games will also hide bonus games and free spins that need to be unlocked with certain symbol combinations, all of which can be found in the game description.
Bingo has been played for generations around the world. With games consisting of 75 and 90 balls, this number-calling classic has stood the test of time to become a worldwide gaming sensation, with a huge following of players grabbing their daubers on a daily basis, waiting to hear some of the famous Bingo calls.
Each number has its own unique Bingo call, which is said before calling the actual number out to players, for example – “two little ducks, twenty-two”.
Whether you play Bingo online or in person, each time a number is called out, you’ll need to check your Bingo card to see if the number called is waiting to be daubed off. When you create a line or daub off all your numbers, you could potentially win a prize, as long as no other player has called a win for a line or full house already.
With the popularity of both Slots and Bingo un-wavering, the idea behind Slingo was to combine both games into one, giving players the best of both worlds in one game.
A game of Slingo is comprised of a set of slot reels and a Bingo card full of numbers ready and waiting to be daubed off.
In order to know which numbers you’ll potentially be daubing off, you’ll need to spin the reels. The reels themselves are adorned with random numbers, usually between 1 – 75, as well as some Slingo games featuring bonus symbols on the reels too.
When the reels are spun, the numbers that land across the pay line will then be cross-referenced with your Bingo card. If any numbers from the reels are found on the Bingo card, they’re daubed off and the reels are spun again. This will be done until the numbers are all daubed off, or the game ends.
