In case the developer checks out this forum

Twice now I have had to sit here playing one game board over and over again. If you are going to make a really high goal (700,000 and 800,000 points) then you should add some power ups (bounce for example) that make it attainable without hair pulling.

Just turn off the volume and listen to music or watch a movie/tv show.

Hey 1of5--just finished the game (and a fun one it was!), Yep, know where you're coming from with the last couple of Slingo games. Three or four tries gets frustrating. There may be a coincidence here (and maybe an unintentional spoiler)--after a couple of games, instead of continually clicking on 'Retry," select quit, back off, then click on the machine and try again. Did that twice, and it seemed to work--maybe that just improves the odds! Good luck!

Good news. 800,000 is the hardest there is. Only 1 machine after that and it was easy.

elldee, are you over "there" as well? Can't say the site.

I'm on the 800,000 Slingo game. I cannot understand anyone playing slots at a casino for hrs on end. This is how I feel about the ungodly high points needed on some games. I started to doze off last night I was so bored playing the game over AND over again. What makes it worse is that the player has to go through setting up the machine, or whatever, each time they leave for any reason. That sucks!
Now that I've got that off my chest, I will try again. Wish me luck!

Atleast it let y'all quit...the only option I kept getting was 'retry'. I kept hitting the 'done' and the 'quit' button and nothing would happen. I finally gave up. Took me forever to get to 700,000. Don't even want to think about 800,000. Stick a fork in me, I'm done.

Hi WolfenRaindancer,
To get out of the game to quit completely, you need to click "retry". That will be the start of another round of "Slingo". After that you can "Quit" completely.
I hope this helps.

I agree with all of you 100%. I didn't purchase this game to play slot machines all night. If they want us to get that many points they should have made it a little easier. I'm about ready to throw the damn game out the window.

I have another complaint about this game. I bought it, finished it, and then went into the "Bonus Section" for the various Slingo Machines to try to better my scores against others listed. Initially I was able to do this and did better my scores on certain machines so thought I would just keep it available for whenever I wanted to try again. Unfortunately, after about 2 wks., when I went back into the "Games Section" everything was "locked" and I would have to play the entire game over again to access those Slingo Machine Sections and the scores that I had bettered were not even listed. The first game "Who's Gold" I can still access and all my newer scores are registered but not this latter game.

Once you have played the game and completed it shouldn't the extra sections of the game remain open endlessly for one to try to raise their scores instead of registering as "locked"???? This doesn't make sense to me.

Dear Developers,

Isn't this Maggie chick supposed to solve Fortune Slingo so she can get off the sinking ship? Well, guess what? YOU KILLED HER! You made this game so frustratingly impossible that the ship has long sunk with poor Maggie desperately trying to finish the game. Way to go!

Sincerely,
BaxterBear

Horrible, horrible game!! I played Slingo over and over again trying to get to 700,000, and don't even come close. The closest I've gotten was 459,000, and I've played at least 15 times. I'm done with this game and will be deleting it. Stupid game should have a "Skip" button.

Save your money on this game, too!

I think this game is great and totally worth playing. Yeah a couple of the Slingo games are tricky near the end, but reaching those goals is doable if you keep trying. I got to the 700,000 goal pretty easily, but had to play the 800,000 game for quite a while before I reached the goal. It got a bit frustrating, but I played until I won and was able to finish the game after that.
