For fans of the traditional slot machine versions of Rainbow Riches, Slingo may seem a bit strange at first, but this is in fact a really exciting and original format that takes the iconic brand to new places.
What Is Slingo?
Slingo is a mixture of bingo and slots in which players have to complete rows on a card (slingos) before hitting a bonus round where big cash prizes await!
In Slingo Rainbow Riches of course, the bonus rounds are the classic Road to Riches, Cash Crops and Magic Toadstools.
In Slingo the player has a game card which features a grid of 25 numbers in a 5×5 grid. The game starts and there are 10 spins to begin with. For each one, a random number is generated. When that number matches one on the grid, the corresponding number is marked-off. When five numbers in a diagonal, vertical or horizontal row are marked off, this constitutes a SLINGO!
There are also other symbols to look out for that can add to your winning potential:
- Joker Wilds – substitute for all others to create winlines.
- Super Jokers – three or more award instant cash prizes.
- Free Spins – gets you extra plays after your initial 10 goes.
- Coins – give you instant cash wins.
- Beware of Devils that take away half your points – BUT look out for Cherubs that nullify the devils!
Slingo Rainbow Riches is playable from 50p to £200 per spin.

If you hit FIVE slingos from your original 10 spins then you are into the bonus rounds. The more slingos you get, the better the bonus rounds become!
