Slingo Bingoton Slot Review
First released in December 2023, Slingo Bingoton has been developed by Gaming Realms exclusively for Paddy Power.
It’s branded game based around the hit TV series Bridgerton and Slingo Bingoton is a unique double grid game so there is even more going on than is usually happening, meaning you are fully involved in the action at all times.
You don’t have to be a fan of the show to enjoy the game, but it will certainly appeal to anyone who likes watching Bridgerton, while regular Slingo players will enjoy the extra variety of two game boards and the rotating reel being being vertical in the middle of the screen rather than at the bottom of the grid.
Slingo Binoton has already proved to be extremely popular, so see for yourself why it has created such a stir and check it out at Paddy Power Casino UK.
How to play
Slingo Bingoton is played on two 5 x 5 grids — green (left) and purple (right) — with a Slingo being awarded when you dab 5 consecutive symbols horizontally, vertically or diagonally (12 paylines in total) on either gameboard.
The numbers to be matched appear on a separate single row reel that spins vertically in between the bingo card grids. Green number symbols dab the green grid, purple number symbols dab the purple grid, and mixed number symbols dab both grids.
Each Slingo moves you up one place on the relevant Payladder, with at least 3 green Slingos and 2 purple Slingos required for multipliers to be applied to wins.
There are 10 spins in every game, and at the conclusion of each game there is the opportunity to buy additional green or purple spins in order to progress up the respective Payladder. The cost of each extra spin is determined by the wager size and how far up the Payladder you are positioned.
- Green Wild symbol means you can dab any number on that green row
- Purple Wild symbol means you can dab any number on that purple row
- Mixed Wild symbol means you can dab any number on the corresponding green and purple rows
- Free spin symbol gives you an additional spin
- Blocker symbols (X) do nothing
- Dabbing a double Slingo across both grids activates the Jackpot Reel, which remains active for all remaining spins during that game.
The green Payladder features multipliers; the purple Payladder has cash values. Slingos on the green grid apply multipliers to all the purple cash values.
- 3 green Slingos = 2x purple Payladder win
- 4 green Slingos = 3x purple Payladder win
- 5 green Slingos = 4x purple Payladder win
- 6 green Slingos = 5x purple Payladder win
- 7 green Slingos = 6x purple Payladder win
- 8 green Slingos = 7x purple Payladder win
- 9 green Slingos = 8x purple Payladder win
- 10 green Slingos = 9x purple Payladder win
- 11 green Slingos (Full House) = 10x purple Payladder win (maximum £2,000)
The maximum Suitor Jackpot that can be won is £500 when betting the max. The maximum Ms Bingoton Jackpot win is £2,000 when playing the maximum wager size.
Slingo Bingoton is a medium to high volatility game with a RTP 96.04%. The RTP during Extra Spins is 95.05%.
After each game of 10 spins is completed, you can buy additional spins to help you progress up one or other of the Payladders:
- If you choose green extra spins, matches will only be applied to symbols on the green grid
- If you choose purple extra spins, matches will only be applied to symbols on the purple grid
The cost of each spin (which is shown on the SPIN FOR button) is determined by the position of symbols on either the green or purple grid, and how far up each respective Payladder you are.
During Extra Spins, the Free Spins symbol is not in play.
Dabbing a double Slingo across both grids activates the Jackpot Reel, which then remains active for all remaining spins during that game. The Jackpot reel can contain green gems, purple gems and lose symbols.
Landing a green gem awards the Suitor Jackpot, while a purple gem awards the Ms Bingoton Jackpot
Graphics and Sounds
Although this is a licensed and branded game, and features some of the most popular characters from the TV series, they do not play a very active role in the game. For instance, Simon Bassett appears on the intro screen, Lady Whistledown and Daphne Bridgerton pop up when it’s Game Over, and the background to the reels is a Bridgerton reception room, but the characters or the setting do not play much of a greater part than this.
The soundtrack is an upbeat jazz funk tune that is very enjoyable, and while perhaps not in keeping with the period in which the show is set, it still manages to capture something of the character of the original.
Regular Slingo players will enjoy Slingo Bingoton for its fast-paced, non-stop action. Like all Slingo games, players are always highly engaged as there are decisions to be made at the end of every game about whether you should play the Extra Spins, take the win, or cut your losses.
Although there are two grids, the screen does not look overly crowded, so while the game is always very fast, you’re nevertheless in a good position to clearly assess what you should do next. There’s also a good mix of wager sizes, so this is a game that is accessible for all, and it has have broad appeal for both slots and bingo players alike.
If you want to enter the world of historic world Bridgerton, check out Slingo Bingoton at Paddy Power, where the game can exclusively be played.
