Golden Nugget’s online casino has a rotating weekly promotion called Game of the Week. Typically, this promotion is limited to one specific game to earn Double Points.
However, this week it’s a whole new slot game: You get to play over a dozen titles from game maker Slingo.
By playing these games at Golden Nugget Online Casino NJ between Monday, Feb. 25, and Thursday, Feb. 28, you can earn Double Points for every wager of $100 on any of the games (details below).
Golden Nugget’s Game of the Week
Variety is the spice of life and this week’s NJ online casino promo applies to play any of the 15 slot titles by game maker Slingo. This includes nine slots/bingo titles, plus six more of the latest NJ online casino games.
The actual Slingo-based titles refer to games that are a hybrid of slots and old-fashioned Bingo.
Each game is played on what looks like a bingo card and while symbols vary, each game contains Jokers and Super Jokers, the former of which can mark off any number in the column grid it appears on, while the latter can mark off any number within the whole grid.
There’s also a Devil that can show up and block potential number matches.
The other special perk of Slingo-style games is the ability to purchase extra spins in order to complete a Slingo for the win and payout. Typically you can purchase four spins at a time.
You can purchase multiple series of four spins, although in reality, if you buy more than two or three, you’ll be spending more than most of the payouts, so beware.
Below is a rundown of each of the Slingo game.
Slingo games on Golden Nugget
Baking Bonanza: Your goal is to collect all the correct ingredient symbols to bake the cake displayed on the screen. One bet provides multiple spins, and in this case, five. During each spin, usable ingredients are placed next to their respective cake recipes. At the end of five spins, you’ll win any cakes that are completed. If you’re close to a win, you have the option to buy extra spins to complete recipes.
Bar-X Colossal: This retro-themed game features Bars, 7s, Xs and a Wild symbol. The center three reels are locked together and can form a Colossal symbol for a big win.
Bar-X XL: Same reel set as Bar-X Colossal. When the center three reels combine to make one XL symbol, it will hold and trigger respins of reels one and five, giving you a better chance at a payout. Beware of the zero symbol, as it is worthless and can block winning paylines.
Dragon’s Gems: Based on the Chinese mythical dragon called Fuzanglong. He guards buried treasure, which is your ultimate goal. With this game, every spin generates a win and Wilds double every NJ casino bonus line win. The bonus game allows you to choose your number of spins/multiplier combination.
Pay of the Dead: An homage to Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. This colorful game with mariachi background music features a Lucha Libre Chihuahua that is a Special Wild with two to 10 times multiplier. The game has a Free Spins bonus game, which has unlimited spins and only ends when the undead appears. There’s also a Red Hot respin feature, where you can pay to achieve your goal.
Pigausus: This game features hybrid animals, like a blue unicorn sheep, three-headed calf, and Pigasus himself, a porcine character with wings. The game has typical Wilds and a Pick Me Wild bonus, as well as a Free Spins bonus. During the bonus, you’ll be given two to four lives. You spin and win until the Big Bad Wolf appears and steals a life. With each life stolen, the win multiplier does increase though, anywhere from two to 10x.
Slots + Bingo = Slingo
Slingo Carnival: Carnival-themed game with seven bonus rounds available, each of which is reminiscent of old-time carnival games, like knocking down wooden milk bottles, popping balloons with a dart or taking a ride on a carousel.
Slingo Extreme: This version brings a flaming fire element, which lights up the reels in flames as you Slingo through the grid. This game also has a free spin element. These will accumulate until your 11 base spins are complete. Then you will receive your additional spins to help complete a Slingo.
Slingo Fortunes: Asian-themed Slingo features red envelopes, each with a cash prize. The goal here is to get rid of the envelopes with the lowest cash prizes. A Slingo occurs if you open five envelopes in a row diagonally, vertically or horizontally.
Slingo Reel Bonus: Rather than the five-reel bingo grid of most Slingo games, this version features five reels and 20 paylines. Wins are paid for three or more of a kind on a win line. Land a Wild and it not only substitutes for a symbol to create a win, but it multiplies that win (2x). Slingo Reel bonus also features a bonus symbol and you’ll need three to initiate your choice of spins. Bonus spin options include four spins with 8x multiplier, eight spins with 4x multiplier or 16 spins with 2x multiplier.
Slingo Reel Extreme: This slot uses the basic Slingo model, but you can collect bonus symbols during the spins in order to trigger the Win Spins bonus. During the Win Spins bonus, you’re offered your choice of spin/multiplier combos. For example, get three bonus symbols and you can choose 16 spins times two, eight spins times four or four spins times eight. All spins during the bonus generate a win.
Slingo Reveal: Just like other Slingo games, mark off five numbers in a row to win. However, in this version, you’ll reveal a symbol with a prize amount attached every time you get a Slingo. If you manage to collect the correct number of that particular symbol, you’ll win the corresponding prize.
Slingo Riches: One of the earliest games, the only variation here is the Free Spin element.
Slingo Showdown: This variation has a Wild West theme and uses cards, with the goal being to collect poker hands. You’ll have nine deals to mark off as many cards as possible. If you manage to hit a poker hand during your deal, you win.
Slingo XXXTreme: The basic game is in play here with a 5×5 grid, 11 spins per bet and the Joker/Super Joker and Devil in play. There are two differences. There is a free spin card, which gets you an extra spin and a cash prize. Also, if you get three or more Jokers or Super Jokers in any combination, you’ll win an instant cash prize.
