Red Hot Slingo Review


Red Hot Slingo is the latest evolutuion in the slots meets bingo game. To date every version of Slingo has involved one reel of numbers with the aim to create winning lines in order to climb the pay table. This version is similar in that respect but instead utilises a 3 row reel that not only includes numbers but also slot icons. This means that not only can you cross off numbers on the 5x5 grid but potentially also win by matching symbols on paylines as in a normal slot game. It's fast! It's furious and it's definitely red hot!

Play Red Hot Slingo

The design of Red Hot Slingo is, like Slingo Big Wheel, fairly basic. As you'd expect from the name the game window is mainly red and there are firey red flames billowing in the background. The paytable is to the left of the screen whilst the 5x5 grid plus 3x5 reel just below. Buttons link you to a page to change your wager whilst there's the usual auto play options, game information and sound on/off button. Interestingly this version doesn't follow the lead from Big Wheel and provide a button so that players can pull up a paytable for the slot. We think that would have been a useful addition.

How To Play Red Hot Slingo

The main aim of Red Hot Slingo is to get lines - horizontal, vertical or diagonal - of five numbers. The more lines you complete the higher the prize you can win. Wagering on this version of Slingo starts at 20p. This can be increased up to a maximum of 100. The minimum and maximum wager may vary from site to site. Once you start the game the spins are automatic so you don't need to keep hitting the spin button. Each spin generates up to 15 numbers below the 5x5 grid. If any numbers match then these are marked off and changed to a star. When you complete a row of five numbers then you move closer to unlocking the bonus wheel.

Unlock The Bonus Wheel

Once you've accumulated at least 3 winning lines then you start winning prizes. The more lines you create the bigger the prize. During game play you may pick up wilds, super wilds and free spins but as with Big Wheel the joker symbol that prevents you from marking off a number is not part of the game. At the start of red Hot Slingo you have just 5 spins - but remember you're creating at least 15 lines of numbers. Like other versions of Slingo you may be invited to spin on after the base game concludes and any free spins used. You can then decide to pay the amount shown on screen for an additional spin, collect your prize or end the game. You can only wager-on for a maximum of 40 turns.

Win On Slots

The prizes you can win from creating lines are all cash prizes and prizes start at 3 Slingos. The lowest prize you can win is x1 the wager and this increases to x500 for a full house. Whilst this is low for a game of Slingo the additional slot game provides extra chances to win. There are up to 5 paylines available with prizes up to x100 your stake. Symbols include wilds, melons, oranges, lemons, cherries and plums. Scatters, wilds and melons are the highest paying symbols. Wins can be achieved by matching at least three symbols running from left to right on their respective paylines.

The Verdict On Red Hot Slingo Review

The addition of the slot element into Red Hot Slingo is a massive step forward for the game. Rather than just rolling numbers you have the opportunity to win with each spin as well. The downside is that wins from the slot element tend to be quite rare. In addition the inclusion of the slot game means the multipliers are reduced for Slingo lines. Also in a typical Slingo game you get 10 spins in the base game (potentially 50 numbers). In Red Hot you get 5 spins and potentially 75 numbers but with slot symbols this is reduced to 50 so you think you're getting a better deal but we're not so sure. Overall though it's a good twist on Slingo and it'd be interesting to see how things evolve.
