If it were any more simplistic, Slingo would be a screen saver. Yet, it manages to stay addicting and continues to somehow draw you back for another round. The game is definitely geared for the casual entertainment crowd, or the gamer who doesn't mind exercising the fingers while letting the mind take a nap. Now if Hasbro would just make "GoFopoly".
In other words, the game goes like this: You pull the handle; you check off any matches (couldn’t the computer do this for you?); you pull the handle again; you check off any new matches: and so on, 18 more times. In real Bingo, you at least have the fun of racing against other players to be the first to complete a line (and win a prize). At least your neighborhood church doesn’t have to lose any sleep over the competition.

Unlike chess, checkers, mah-jongg, or any number of two-player classic or board games, there is absolutely no skill involved whatsoever.
