Slingo welcome Bonus
Then once you do deposit money after signing up, you’ll receive your full welcome bonus. That’s 100% of what you deposit up to £100. There is a very big catch, however. The casino requires you to bet through this money a total of 50 times before you can claim it. Since the industry standard on playthroughs is 35 times, 50 times just seems ridiculous.
That said, if you bet the money in the Slingo Boom room you’ll only have to play it through eight times. See our comment above on what this says about the odds in the Slingo boom room. In addition, the most you can win from your matching cash is £500. If you win any more than that Slingo will simply keep the money. So that’s a bit of a bait and switch going on with the welcome bonus that leaves a bad taste in our mouths.
There is also a promotion where players can try to become a VIP player. This is where you will get free spins, matching funds and other perks. There are two types of VIP players. Regular VIPs and Platinum VIPs. You can’t apply to become a Slingo VIP. The casino itself will automatically make you one if they decide you gamble enough. Obviously the more you bet at Slingo the higher the odds are that they will want to make you a VIP.
Outside of the VIP status, this casino offers very few promotions. They save those for the Slingo VIP members. If promotions are what you are looking for, you can find them at other casinos. Slingo simply doesn’t offer them unless you bet a lot of money on the site.
Online Chat Request for Deposit
Good luck getting any free money just for asking their live chat for it. Trust us, we’ve tried. Time and again, no matter what excuse we came up with, we were told no. We really pushed on this one because the play through limits are so high we figured we’d get something. But nope. Not one thin dime.
You, of course, are free to try to bug them and see if they’ll give you free cash, but we highly doubt you’ll get it. If you do get it, please drop us a line and let us know exactly how you did it. We are honestly curious.
Terms and Conditions
You must be a resident of the UK to take advantage of the welcome bonus. You also must be at least 18 years old.
You have 30 days after you open an account to make your first deposit and claim the welcome bonus. The minimum amount you have to deposit to take advantage of the welcome offer is £10. Your deposit must be made with Visa or MasterCard. No other forms of payment will count towards the bonus offer.
If you bet the money in the Slingo Boom room, you’ll only have to bet it eight times in order to withdraw it. If you play it anywhere else on Slingo you’ll have to play through it 80 times.
You have a total of 30 days before Slingo takes the money back, so place your bets wisely. If you don’t bet your matching cash in 30 days Slingo will make you forfeit it. Your wagers with your own money do not count towards the 80 playthroughs. Only money you have been given in matching funds counts as part of this offer.
Daily withdrawal limits, Maximum winnings
You can make deposits and withdrawal through Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, and transfer from your bank directly via wire. Slingo does not accept any e-wallets – which is strange for a casino in this day and age. They also don’t accept or issue checks.
The withdrawal limit is £10,000 per month which we also find odd. What if you won£ 2 million on a progressive jackpot? You’d be waiting years to get all of your money. It takes them up to 48 hours to process your payment. Again this seems a bit long. Once that is done it will take up to five business days to process the money back to your Visa, MasterCard or Maestro. It will take up to seven business days if you requested a wire transfer.
Bonus turnover requirement
The matching funds and the free bonus money that you receive when you sign up have to be played so many, many times before you can claim the money. For the money when you sign up, you have to play it through 60 times. For the matching cash, you have to play it through 80 times. The one exception to this is the Slingo Boom room, where you only have to play it through eight times.
That seriously makes us wonder about the odds of winning anything in the Boom room.
When you come to Slingo you have more than 250 games video slot machines to choose from. That’s really not a lot, considering there are casinos with over 3,000 video slots to play.
They do have all of the major games so if you want something next generation with free spins and mini-games you’ll find it here. They also have a few of the old school three-reel fruit machines so if that’s your thing you can find it at Slingo.
What the company clearly wants you to do is play are the Slingo games in the Boom room. These games are a combination of slot machines and bingo games. They don’t post the return to player ratio on them. That said the fact that for anything else you have to bet through 80 times but for the Slingo games you only have to bet through them eight times says a lot about just how hard it must be to win a Slingo game. That said we are sure there are people who want to try to beat them.
The casino does have a fair amount of table games. You’ll find many variations of blackjack and roulette. You’ll also find baccarat. The amount of variations is good and shows a commitment that their slot selection does not. If you can think of a blackjack or roulette variant, you’ll probably find it here ready to play.
The casino has nine video poker games for you to choose from. They are the obvious popular ones like Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better. You can play up to 100 hands at once if you want to make really big bets. Slingo also offers scratch-off games for people who are into that. In addition, you can also play Keno.
Their Live Casino is sparse. They must really, really want you to play their Slingo games. You can choose from blackjack, roulette and baccarat. They do really make you feel like you are in the casino. You can talk to the other players and the dealer. You’ll feel like you are in Vegas or Monte Carlo. We just wish they’d added a few more live casino games. But this is Slingo casino and we guess we are not surprised they are pushing us towards Slingo games.
The apps for iOS and Android are available from the appropriate app store. They allow you to play all of their games on your smartphone. The interface is easy to understand and the games play well. The apps themselves are free. You can deposit and withdraw money from the apps.
AML & Suspicious Activity
We have to say out of all the casinos we have reviewed, Slingo has the best record. There is no history of complaints about them at all. Not on any of the sites that seem to garner complaints about everything. No legal authority has ever pursued them. They seem to keep their stuff together.
There is no evidence of money laundering. There is no evidence that any of their games are rigged. There are no allegations of them pursuing problem gamblers. They seem about as honest as you can be while running an online casino. We’ve looked hard and found nothing negative against them anywhere.
Slingo is an odd casino. It does seem to be operating extremely honestly. And for those people who like the combination of slots and bingo, their Slingo games are the only game in town. While we suspect the odds on Slingo games heavily favour the house, if people like betting on them, why not?
We have to give Slingo 10 stars out of 10 for being exactly what they claim to be and not being obtuse about anything. While we find the playthrough requirements ridiculous they are plainly posted for anyone to see.
