Slingo Reel Riches Slot Review
Slingo is the popular slots meets bingo mash up that now features on pretty much every online slot brand. Back in 2016 however when there were just a few versions of the game – including Deal Or No Deal – Gaming Realms launched a slot called Slingo Reel Riches. This slot was the brand’s first real step away from the original game. We had high hopes for this particular slot and thought it might somehow incorporate the more well known game. However it’s in fact it’s just a standard slot game that features all your favourite Slingo characters.
How To Play Slingo Reel Riches
Slingo Reel Riches is quite a simple looking game but it’s well designed and very colourful. On the reels are jokers, a fairy and devils which represent the high paying symbols. Wilds are the highest paying symbol and pay x1000 for five of a kind. Wilds also double the prize of any win line so five jokers involving a wild can generate a x1600 prize. The lower paying symbols are playing cards represented by J, Q, K and A. Wagering on Slingo Reel Riches starts at 20p but the max wager can be increased to £50, although this may vary from site to site.
As well as the double wins on wild symbols, Slingo Reel Riches also boasts a Wild Spins Bonus round. This arrives with guaranteed wins and the chance to win up to x1000 your bet. When the bonus game activates – thanks ti 3 or more bonus symbols on the reel – you get to choose whether to play 16 free spins for x2 multiplier, 8 free spins for x4 multiplier or 4 free spins for x8 multiplier. There’s no way of knowing whether you’ve chosen the best option but it does add a bit of spice to the game.
Wins On Reel Riches
We were lucky enough to try out a bonus round during our trial play and opted for the 4 free rounds at x8 multiplier. It would have been nice to know whether this was the right choice in terms of win value. One thing we also noted with Reel Riches is that we did achieve a few 5 line wins, quite often with all three lines showing 5 identical symbols. We are surprised that the bonus round somehow doesn’t incorporate the original Slingo game but perhaps that’s a step too far?
The Spin On Slingo Reel Riches
Slingo Reel Riches looks great and plays great as well. When we first reviewed the game we wondered whether Slingo would add more slots. As is the brand has put more focus on the actual Slingo game and teamed up with other providers to create branded versions of the game. This means you can now play Slingo versions of Reel King, Fluffy Favourites and even Starburst. In fairness we think that’s probably a better approach than releasing slot games.
