Game development

We build original content from our Colchester (Slingo Originals) and Victoria (Slingo Arcade) game studios incorporating social meta games and real money mechanics with well-known brands. All our games are designed and developed for mobile, tablet and desktop devices.


The market for casino games is very crowded, with most operators having hundreds of games on their sites. It is apparent that Slingo games are able to get to the forefront of players attention, using its unique brand and format.
