Quick summary of Big Money Slingo
As the name would suggest Big Money Slingo is a bingo-style game containing a 5×5 grid with 25 numbers, where your goal is to match five numbers in a row, similar to a game of bingo.
The game is a bit more engaging than the majority of the games in the PA online lottery, many of which are simple “reveal” games, similar to what you might find in a scratch card. In contrast, Big Money Slingo adds multiple turns and plenty of variation that will keep most players entertained.

How to Play Big Money Slingo
Like most PA iLottery games, Big Money Slingo takes only a couple minutes to learn to play.
After you select your game piece — which can be purchased for $0.50, $1, $2, $3, $5 and $10 — your board will randomly display numbers on the 5×5 grid.
You will get six “goes” for each play, with each go containing five numbers. Before starting, up to four jokers will randomly appear, which are effectively free spaces on the board. To begin, click the “go” button to reveal your five numbers for each turn. When a number has been revealed the board will be marked off with a star symbol.
During your turn, occasionally a yellow ball will be revealed in place of a number which will allow you another “go,” where an additional five numbers will be revealed.
If you mark five numbers off in a row, you will the prize for that row or column.
Big Money Slingo’s 1 in 2.40 chances means that you will win more frequently than virtually any other game in the PA online lottery. The game is second only to Cash and Conquer and Big Eats Little.
But the game stands out because not only are the odds of winning in any given play high, but the payback percentages are excellent for an online lottery game. The 93.57% payback means that, in theory, for every $100 you put into the game you will get $93.57 back.
Of course, this is an average and not a guarantee of your return — you could lose more or win more. Given that the game with the next highest payout — Super Gems — is a full 4% lower, you won’t find a better game in the PA iLottery lottery in terms of value.
