We’re extremely excited to announce our latest release, which was created in partnership with NetEnt. Slingo Starburst brings the dazzling bonus features from the hugely popular slot to the Slingo grid, where wins are generated through the Win Spins Bonuses. This makes for a dynamic gaming experience, as Slingos unlock the potential for big wins, while other gems lie in store on the reel, so there’s plenty of action to keep players engaged as they strive to climb the bonus ladder. Fans of both games will love this fresh take on two recognisable mechanics, which takes all the popular features of the brands and provides a new way to play.
It wouldn’t be a Slingo game without the classic 5×5 grid. Players spin the slot reel to eliminate numbers from the columns above, aiming to mark off 5 numbers in a line to get a Slingo. If 3 or more Slingos are achieved, players will unlock the epic Win Spins Bonus. This is played on a separate slot at the end of the game, where players get a single spin of the Starburst slot reels. A guaranteed win of the relevant symbol is awarded and if any Wild symbols land on the reels they’ll expand, stay in place and respin the reels for the chance to hit more wins!
Wilds can also appear on the slingo slot reel in the base game and activate Wild Respins! They hold in place and respin the reel for the chance to generate more number matches on the grid. This can continue until no more Wilds land on the reel, giving players the chance to get a streak of matches and, ultimately, a Slingo. Wilds also mark numbers off the column above where they land.
Adding to the action, Purple Gem symbols can award an instant cash prize when 3 or more of them land in a single spin on the Slingo slot reel. They pay the same as Blue Gem symbols in the Starburst slot game and Wild symbols can substitute for them on the reel. At the end of the base game, players are presented with an Extra Spin chance wheel. If the wheel lands in the green area, players get a free respin and this continues until the wheel lands on the red section of the wheel. Players can then purchase extra spins for more chances of hitting a big bonus.
We’re incredibly proud of this latest release and it was an honour to team up with the mighty NetEnt to create it. Starburst is a phenomenon in the online gaming world and the awesome features that players love lend themselves perfectly to the slingo mechanic. We can’t wait to see what players make of this collaboration – we think it’ll shoot to stardom!
