Slingo Spotlight: Slingo Classic

Welcome to Slingo Spotlight our new blog series where we shine the spotlight on the most popular titles on our site. In today’s article, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the OG Slingo game which started off the entire genre; Slingo Classic. Once left languishing in slot history, this slot has been revamped for the modern era for its 20th anniversary. Here’s what we have to say about this classic slot game.

Slingo Classic Theme & Design

The Slingo Classic Slingo game has been carefully designed to perfectly mimic where the genre first began with the OG Slingo slot that was released over 20 years ago. If you’re a seasoned Slingo player that has fond memories of playing the original game, then the Slingo Classic Slingo game will be the ultimate nostalgic experience. Even if you’re brand new to the world of Slingo slots, you’ll enjoy the retro vibes this game is putting out. 

Game RTP & Wager Limits

Slingo Classic has a theoretical return to player in line with other Slingo games at 95%. As a medium volatility slot game, Slingo Classic is designed to be enjoyed by all players, which is also seen in its flexible wagering limits which start at just 20p and cap out at £25. 

How To Play Slingo Classic


To play Slingo Classic you’ll first need to set your stake by using the + and - buttons to increase or decrease your wager amount. Once satisfied you can click the red ‘start game’ to begin playing. The aim of the game is very simple; you’ll have 11 spins to match as many of the numbers that appear on your 5x5 game grid as the numbers landed on the reel. Each line that is completed is called a Slingo and will move players up the prize ladder for bigger and better payouts. This prize ladder is found on the left side of the game grid and completing all 11 Slingos (which is called a Full House) will award players with the top prize which is 500x their wager. 

The Slingo Classic slot has two main special symbols; the Joker and the Super Joker. These act similarly to the wild symbols of slot machines. The joker can mark off any number in the column above its reel position, while the super joker can mark off any number anywhere on the game grid.
