Hello, I have a Slingo Addiction

Second Life Slingo is very addicting

Hello, My name is JohnnyRS and I have a slingo addiction. I have been playing slingo almost every day for a month or more on second life. I have won some good money with this game and other times I have been so mad when I lose lot of my points in the game. Some days I have won 2 or 3 times in a row. Other times I have lost every game in a day. Yes I am a Slingo addict and I don’t care.

Slingo is a cross between Bingo and Slots. A player has 20 turns to “spin” the numbers below his or her bingo card. Five numbers appear, and if they are found on the card, they can be marked off. There are also special symbols that can come up to gain more points or take away points. The coin and angel will give you $1000 points. The devil will take away HALF of your points. You gain points by clearing a line of numbers on the card. You gain $1000 points for each line you clear. You also gain $3000 points for filling a pattern which changes for each game. You also gain $5000 points for filling all the numbers on the card. Slingo originated on AOL and can be played in second life now. When you join a game you may find it very addicting.

At the start of the game everyone’s puts in some money into the POT which goes to the person with the highest points after the game. Some places require a contribution to the POT. Others don’t require it but some players might point you out if you give nothing for awhile. Most places will require 20% to 40% of your winnings back into the pot if it’s a big winning. Some places like Icedragons Playpen have problems with lag so the games can be very slow. If you go to another place you will find it a lot faster. Sometimes slow can be good and other times it’s torture waiting for the next round. Slingo doesn’t take much strategy but a lot of LUCK because you just need to fill in the numbers kind of like bingo. The only strategy is when you get a blue or green joker. The blue joker lets you mark any number in the column it’s in. The green joker lets you mark any number on your CARD! So by placing these numbers in a good spot may get you more points.

In second life, slingo is a game where players use lot of different sound clips. Don’t be surprised if you hear gun shots while you are playing because someone probably just received a devil symbol and they want to get their frustration out with a sound clip. Some of the sound clips are very funny. Some are used so much it gets to be irritating.
