Platform: DS, PC
Slingo has been around for a long time. I think I first played it in 2009 or so, possibly earlier. I would definitely call this a casual game, as you can pick it up whenever you want and quickly put it back down (if you can). This game is all over the place now – I have a DS game, it’s on Facebook games, there are stand-alone PC games – and there are many different versions of it. I’m going to focus on Slingo Quest for the Nintendo DS.
It’s fairly easy to sum up this game – it’s a cross between a slot machine and bingo. You spin the reels at the bottom, and then select the numbers in your Slingo card that match. Get a standard bingo pattern (minus four corners) and you get points. Slingo adds in other objectives that vary from card to card as well.
It’s a simple game, but it is a lot of fun and I recommend it for anyone looking for a quick time waster. There are times when you need to play more than one card at a time, and I love these games:
It’s more challenging and fun. If you’ve never played Slingo, try it out. I am fairly sure you’re going to have fun!
