Slingo X Factor
‘You could be the dark horse of this competition. I think we may have found a star.’ We all know Simon Cowell’s best X Factor lines by now, but you could be the star of the show in this fabulous game. Slingo X Factor takes all the best bits of classic Slingo and put them through to boot camp for that extra X Factor sparkle. Dermot O’Leary’s calling your name, it’s time to step on stage…
Free Spins, a Progressive Jackpot, a separate main game cash prize and lots of wild Jokers and Super Jokers to help you get a Slingo. Need we say more? The ultimate goal for an X Factor winner is to get the Christmas No. 1 spot – and you could be walking away with a massive win befitting of a superstar. Fingers crossed!
How To Play
X Factor stars need to warm up their vocal chords before they step on stage, and you need to set your stake before you can dive into your Slingo showcase. The (+) and (-) buttons in the bottom-left corner of your screen allow you to adjust your bet, and when you’re ready to strut your stuff, hit SPIN. There’s a reel underneath your 5x5 bingo grid that will spin the numbers that are to be marked off your grid (if any matching numbers come up). To get a sassy Slingo, you need to mark off numbers in a line horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Have you got what it takes to nab a full-house win? There’s some features that can help you with that:
JOKER: marks off any number in the column above
SUPER JOKER: marks off any number on your grid
3 or more Jokers/Super Jokers: if these symbols land in any order on the reel, they’ll get you an ‘X’ symbol, which is marked off on the column to the right of your screen. The more ‘X’ symbols you collect, the higher you will climb on the progressive jackpot meter.
Free Spins: If you land one of these symbols on your reel, you’ll get a Free Spin. Free spins will be played out after your initial spins are used up.
You may have heard about this feature already, it’s kind of a big deal. The progressive jackpot is separate from the base game cash prize, and the jackpot will increment as you go through the game, depending on how many ‘X’ symbols you manage to collect. Let’s hope those Jokers help you to nab them! Here are the different stages of the progressive jackpot:
- Bronze Jackpot – triggered when you have collected 7 ‘X’ symbols
- Silver Jackpot – achieved when you collect 8 ‘X’ symbols
- Gold Jackpot – awarded when you collect 9 ‘X’ symbols
You’re through to the next round, superstar – so steal the show!
