Steve Yzerman is still working to bring the Detroit Red Wings back to the promised land, but he recently guided me there.
Sure, it was in Red Wings Slingo. And yes, that promised land was only an eventual $20 payout. But it all started with selecting No. 19 on a “Super Wild” and I’m comfortable giving Stevie Y all the credit.
How to play Red Wings Slingo?
Red Wings Slingo is a straightforward Slingo game with a 5-by-5 grid and some winged-wheel branding. It uses the traditional 75-ball Slingo format, and as you match numbers and achieve Slingos, your possible payout and cashout options increase.
Once you get beyond the 11 spins included in your original wager, you can wager more for extra spins. Original wagers can be as low as $0.20 and as high as $100. The higher your original wager, the higher the potential payout.
A goal-lamp indicates a wild, allowing you to pick your number in that row. A Wings sweater equals a super wild, allowing you to pick any number on the board.
“Detroit Red Wings Slingo appeals to die-hard fans of this great and historic hockey franchise, and we’re glad to be able to connect our players in Michigan to their favorite team,” Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM Director of Gaming, said in a release. “Thanks to our great partners in the Red Wings and Gaming Realms, we’ve added this exclusive Slingo experience to our market-leading portfolio of more than 500 games.”
Detroit teams featured in games at Michigan online casinos
Red Wings Slingo isn’t the first online casino game in Michigan built around a Detroit professional sports franchise.
BetMGM also features Detroit Lions-themed blackjack and roulette games, which were created by Evolution.
DraftKings Casino MI has an exclusive Detroit Pistons Blackjack game.
The games feature team branding throughout, but play like a typical blackjack or roulette game.
Partnerships between online gaming operators and professional teams continue to be formed, so one could expect the number of these titles to increase.
