Licensing & Regulation

4.4/5

Slingo Casino has been around since 1995, according to its website, which means that it will be celebrating its 30th birthday in only a few short years. The platform is owned and operated by SkillOnNet Ltd, and it is based in Malta. As such, it also holds the Malta Gaming Authority gambling license, issued on August 1st, 2018.

The site claims that it has over 55 million users, and it won several awards for its pioneering gameplay. Its website is fairly clean and easy to get around and find what you are looking for, primarily because different game categories are available as soon as you land on its home page. From there on, you navigate either through a small menu in the upper left corner or via different tabs on the website, which offer access to Home, Slingo, Slots, and Casino pages.

The home page contains the history of the casino and the slingo game, the most popular games, some of the slingo game rules, the FAQ, supported payment methods, as well as certain promotions. Slingo Casino uses strong encryption to protect users’ sensitive information, it promotes responsible gaming, and it has a vision of providing players with a fun, exciting, and spontaneous gaming experience in the safest and most secure environment that the platform can offer.

Bingo

4.5/5

Let’s face it most players who visit Slingo want to play either slingo or bingo, and when it comes to bingo they do not disappoint.

Choose from a wide variety of games including: Bingo Blast, Boom Box Bingo, Heavy Weight Bingo, Super Heavy Weight Bingo, Jackpot Room Bingo, Country Roads Bingo.

Jackpot Room Bingo is worth checking out, you’ll play 90 ball bingo, the most popular version of the game in the UK both online and in the bingo halls. With prizes for One Line, Two Lines and Full House. If you’re lucky enough to get a full house in 36 calls or less, you’ll win the progressive jackpot.

Meanwhile players who are playing on mobile and want a quick game may enjoy Boom Box Bingo, the 80 ball bingo game  has less balls than traditional 90 ball bingo games, creating a faster bingo game that’s optimised for on-the-go gaming.

Casino Games

4.3/5

Speaking of what the platform has to offer, let’s talk about games. Slingo Casino’s games are supplied by several software developers, including NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Play’n GO, Red Tiger, and others. The platform offers more than 1,200 casino games in total, including slots, jackpots, roulette, blackjack, video poker, Andar Bahar, Bac Bo, Baccarat, Bingo games, and more.

All of the available games come with numerous different versions and variants, not only because they come from different providers but also because they come as different versions of the same game. So, for example, you can play American roulette, European roulette, and even Arabic roulette, where different games feature different rules and mechanics, which also changes the odds and leads to an entirely different gambling experience.

Different variants do not only come when it comes to roulette but also baccarat, blackjack, and more. Then, there are scratch games, countless slots games, and, of course, slingo. Some of the most popular slingo games, according to the platform, are Slingo Riches, Slingo Rainbow Riches, and Branded Slingo Games.

You need to register and verify your account in order to play any of these games and, of course, deposit funds in order to have the money to place your wager, which leads us to the next topic we want to discuss, which is:

Payment Options

4.1/5

Slingo Casino offers eight different payment options, which might seem like too few choices at first glance. After all, there are hundreds of options out there, and everyone seems to have a different preference. Generally speaking, casinos can choose one of two options when selecting which payment methods to support – either to try and include as many as possible or to add a few, but to focus on the biggest ones around.

Slingo has opted for the second approach, and it offers Visa, Mastercard, Paysafe Card, Trustly, Skrill, Neteller, ecoPayz, and Apple Pay. Most people have likely heard about all of these cards and services, which is not surprising, given that they are some of the biggest players on the market. They are all certainly trusted, and legitimate, and have been around for years, if not decades at this point.

Slingo also notes that the minimum deposit is only 10 EUR, and for the first deposit, users receive a welcome bonus of up to 100 EUR. Other than the bonus, the platform also offers daily jackpots and mega jackpots, which serve as quite popular promotions.

Customer Support

3.9/5

Sometimes, even the most experienced casinos happen to have technical issues, which is why it is important for them to have customer support available for users who happen to run into such problems. Customer support should preferably be available around the clock, as users can never know when they might encounter a problem. The problems can range from glitchy games to being unable to deposit or withdraw money, access an account, or anything of the sort. Naturally, this can be very disturbing for the gamblers who might fear for their funds, and that is why the problem needs to be resolved as soon as possible, and preferably right away.

Slingo Casino allows players to contact its support team via live chat or email, plus the third option which is to report a problem with a website if they encounter it, but it doesn’t concern the players themselves. Email option is available around the clock, and while the emails might not be answered right away, customer service agents will see them sooner or later and respond as soon as possible.

For a more immediate option, users can access live chat, which will put them in direct contact with the customer service agent, who will then try to help them resolve the problem or answer any question that the user has. We should note that live chat is only available between 6 am and 12 am GMT, which is not bad as it provides coverage for 18h per day, although it would be preferable if it was available 24/7.

Mobile Availability

3.8/5

Lastly, let’s talk about mobile availability. In 2022, it is pretty safe to say that most people now own some sort of a mobile device, be that a tablet, a smartphone, or something of the sort, and that most people tend to use such devices throughout the day. In fact, a very small number of gamblers can afford to sit in front of their PCs and play games throughout the day, as various responsibilities to work and other aspects of life keep many of us constantly on the go.

With that said, a casino that has mobile coverage is more likely to see a greater number of users than the ones that don’t. Slingo Casino’s website is optimized to fit nearly any device, and as long as the device has a browser, you can use it to access the platform and play your favorite games at any time and from any place.

Unfortunately, there is no dedicated app, but for some players, this is not a problem, as they prefer not having to download additional software, and finding the platform via their mobile browser takes only a few seconds longer than tapping an app icon and opening the platform that way.

Summary

4.1/5

With everything said and done, we believe that Slingo Casino is an excellent online casino for a variety of games, but primarily slingo itself. It has great customer support, which may not be available 24/7, but it is still available for most of the day; it has some of the biggest and most popular payment methods, not only in Sweden, but around the world, and it has well over 1,200 games that you can access at any time

You can access it via mobile or desktop, and you will always have a peace of mind, knowing that the platform is secure, licensed, and regulated, with strong security practices and other benefits that make it both safe and fun to use.
