Zynga has quietly announced the closure of Zynga Slingo on Facebook. While Zynga Slingo has over 3.5 million monthly active users, this move comes as no surprise, as RealNetworks purchased the Slingo name and brand at the end of July 2013 for $15.6 million, according toTechCrunch.RealNetworks purchased Slingo as part of its continued push into social casino gaming.
For those of you who don’t know what Slingo is, Slingo is a hybrid of slots and bingo mixed into one game. Slingo is a fairly new game and was only created in 1995 and is played multiplayer just like a bingo game, but relies on the element of chance, to ‘spin’ for numbers just like slots.
