Most of these are pretty self explanatory, but here’s more info on a few of the trickier ones.
As you know, normally Slingos can only be made when you cover five in a row, column, or diagonal. Getting the Bounce Slingos powerup adds two new patterns to the board!
The first one is very simple.
That’s a Slingo! That shape activates four new Slingos on the board. You can also look at it this way, if it helps.
For some reason I have a harder time remembering the second pattern, but it works like this:
It may look simple, but this this pattern adds sixteen Slingos to the board! If you drew them all out it’d look something like this.
If you’re not into planning your Slingos out, just place your Jokers wherever you want and don’t worry about it. ^_^
This is one of my favorite powerups, mainly because I HATE that darn Devil. >_< But there’s another great reason to have the Cherub save your behind. Sometimes zie’ll double your score!
Whenever you look at the daily scores and wonder how in the heck people got that high, this is the answer. The Cherub saved their behind multiple times, and generously doubled their score in the process!
Keep in mind that Devil Protection doesn’t mean that you’ll get your score doubled every time a Cherub saves you. But it does mean that you won’t lose any points at all to that darn Devil!
This one is awesome. ^_^ When the icon pops up, you can match any number in the column above it. But when you click the number you’re really getting five spots at once! It looks like this:
This is another of my faves too. (Is there a powerup I dislike? Probably not.)
Slingo Vision automatically highlights available moves, which makes the games SUPER fast. ^_^ I love it.
Tips & Tricks
The value of Slingos increases when you have them in succession.
- 1st Slingo = 1000 points
- 2nd Slingo = 1500 points
- 3rd Slingo = 2000 points
- 4th Slingo = 2500 points
- 5th Slingo = 3000 points
- 6th Slingo = I hope you get the idea by now.
When you click SPIN it starts over, so try to plan your Slingos out and get as many as you can in one turn!
Since the game changes every day, that’s really the only tip I’ve figured out so far! *^_^*
I really enjoy the variety in the Slingo Daily Challenge, and I look forward to seeing future powerups! The challenge score is also pretty neat, but it’s frustrating when the only way you can get it is to have the Cherub save your behind AND double your score. I’m not usually that lucky. :(
Other than that little bit, it’s a fantastic game! ^_^ I rate it 4.5 stars out of 5. What would you rate it? Do you have a favorite powerup? Least favorite?
If you like Slingo Daily Challenge, well, you should probably hang around Slingo and play some more of their games! XD But if you want to branch out, try some of these!
