Zynga Slingo was a social casino game developed by Zynga and released on Facebook in February 2012. It was Zynga’s first licensed game and a partnership with classic gambling game Slingo.[1][2]

The game was available in 14 languages, including English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Turkish, Danish, German, Swedish, and Norwegian.[3]

Zynga Slingo was shut down on August 27, 2013.

Gameplay[edit]

Players clicked "spin" and matched numbers to fill a slingo card. They could increase their score by earning balls and coins. Players got a "slingo" by matching five numbers vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Players could wager their points — the whole loot or just a percentage — and flip the devil-vs-cherub coin to potentially win big or lose it all. Players could give other players power-ups or act as a Joker.[4]

They could also chat with one another in the chat panel.

Zynga added a "Play with Friends" button to the game, which eventually let players compete for high scores based on the same board.[5]
