SLINGO UPDATES #1 CASINO APP WITH IN-GAME PURCHASING

HACKENSACK, NJ – April 18, 2012 – Slingo Supreme, the top casino app for iPhone and iPad, is answering player demands with a new update: in-app purchasing.  Already the #1 Casino App and ranked in the top 50 for All Apps for both the iPhone and iPad versions, Slingo Supreme now lets players purchase Challenge Coins so they can order up as many personal challenges as they desire.

The chart-topping success of Slingo Supreme on the App Store mirrors the massive adoption of the brand on Facebook, as Zynga Slingo is currently the fastest-growing game on the site with more than 17 million MAU (monthly active users) now playing since its launch on February 15.*

“Given its incredible visibility and popularity across a variety of gaming platforms, Slingo is one of the most powerful gaming brands worldwide,” said Rich Roberts, CEO of Slingo.  “We are extremely pleased with its success on Facebook and iOS, and are happy to offer a much-demanded update to fans of Slingo Supreme.”

Developed by Funkitron, Slingo Supreme is based on the classic Slingo game but offers tremendous player customization via its new Supreme Mode.  As they play, gamers can unlock power-ups that will then let them build a custom Slingo game.  The more power-ups unlocked, the more types of Slingo games they can create.  Each combination is a totally new experience and, with 12 types of power-ups, there are over 16,000 combinations to play.

Slingo is a thrilling combination of bingo and slots that reaches over 55 million people through casino slots, online games, retail, mobile and other platforms.  Over 50 million Slingo games have been downloaded across the Internet with almost 5 billion games of Slingo played online.
