Slingo Stampede is a classic slot from Slingo Originals that brings the excitement of bingo to the world of slots. The theme is evocative of the African wilderness with the reels being framed by a picturesque scene of swaying Savannah grasses, tall trees, and a warm sun shining on it all. The action on the reels is further enlivened when the Rhinos, which are the scatters in this slot, appear in numbers and stampede across the spinning reels, awarding players up to 1,000x their stake. Combine this with a full house on the grid awarding 500x the base stake and you can achieve the projected max win of 1,500x your stake. The bet range of $0.20-$100 is mostly adequate for the low rollers as well as the high rollers. This point is worth mentioning because most games from Slingo Originals offer very narrow bet ranges. However, though the max win in this game is decent, an average RTP of 95.4% with somewhat high variance makes it difficult for players to achieve it. Some other slots to try out include Slingo Starburst which has a higher max win of 15,000x or Slingo Lucky Joker which has a plethora of engaging bonus features and intricate gameplay.
Slingo Stampede has less than the usual gamut of bonus elements that Slingo Originals bring to the table, but the elements that are present seamlessly weave their way into the game.
Wilds and Super Wilds
The game features both Wild and Super Wild symbols. When Wilds appear on the 5x3 slot during a spin, they allow players to mark any of the remaining numbers on the column directly above the reel on which they land.
When Super Wilds appear on the other hand, players get to mark any remaining number across the 5x5 Slingo grid.
When three or more Rhino symbols, the scatters in Slingo Stampede, appear on the reels they immediately award players a jackpot valued anywhere between 1x to 1,000x, depending on the number of symbols. Land 10+ Rhino symbols to activate the 1,000x multiplier.
A single free spin is awarded whenever a Free Spins symbol lands on the reels during a spin. This spin is added to the remaining of the 5 spins in the base game.
A player, on having exhausted all of the 5 regular spins and any free spins awarded along the way, can choose to buy up to 40 extra spins one at a time. The value of these spins may vary depending on the winning possibilities on the Slingo grid at that time and may be higher than a player's base stake.
Another special symbol is the X-shaped Blocker. This simply blocks a space on the reel and performs no other function, making it more challenging for players to achieve their desired wins.
RTP and Payouts
The RTP of the Slingo Stampede slot is average at 95.4%. Payouts in this slot depend on the number of Slingos a player can complete in a given round, coupled with the number of Rhino scatters they land during the spins. Landing 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 or more Rhino scatters award players 1x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 100x, 250x, and 1,000x their wager respectively. Meanwhile completing 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 Slingos offer 1x, 2x, 4x, 7x, 10x, 20x, 50x, and 100x the bet amount. A Full House on the 5x5 grid awards 5x the max bet.
Max Win and Top Multiplier
The max win in the Slingo Stampede demo as well as real money versions is a cumulative 1,500x. The slot doesn't have the usual multipliers and awards wins upon the completion of Slingos and the accumulation of scatter symbols. The max win can be achieved by playing at the max bet of $100, achieving a Full House on the 5x5 grid, and collecting 10+ Rhino scatters.
