Slingo in Second Life has a new name with a new design and better gameplay. The new version which came out this year is now known as Devil May Care. Most of the events still use the name Slingo but some are using the abbreviation DMC. It’s the same game that I wrote about in a previous post. The best part is it should have less lag and keep track of the scores better. Owners can now set a minimum amount of money to put in the pot before you can take a card. They can also set a percentage amount of money to take from the pot for the owner of the game.
Some of the game events require a minimum amount which can be from $5L to $100L to play. Obviously these places have the biggest pots. Easily can get to $1000L faster than a place which allows free play. I’ve been switching back and forth between free play and pay to play places. I figure out how much I am willing to spend that day and then when I use it up I move to the free plays until I win or get bored of losing. Another new feature is the maximum amount of cards can be set up to 30! Even at the laggy places it does a much better job then the older version.
Also remember to check the rules displayed in each game for the required percentage of your winnings to be put back into the pot. If you don’t you’ll get yelled at or banned. This allows the amount of money in the pot to stay high. Be sure to try this game out for this new year because it doesn’t look like it will go away any time soon.
For interested buyers of the game you can go to ImagineNation to buy and run your very own multi-player or solo slingo event yourself if you have the money to buy it of course!
