How can I get Slingo Express? Back in 1995, I had the original Slingo. Not the deluxe or any of the others. I just want to know how to get the Slingo that was on AOL.

I was a member with AOL for over 10 years and have accumulated millions of points on Slingo Express. I since have changed to a high speed carrier and would love to be able to get back and play without having to install and run the whole AOL.9 program. Can you please suggest an alternative @ gtrebyck AT aol.com, since I still have AIM for messages. Very much appreciated.
Thank You (06/30/2007)

I am a 65 year old disabled male. I played slingo express on aol for 7 years and had made friends in the chat room from all over the country. I also had totaled 980 million pts striving to reach 1 billion before my years were up. aol just decided without and customer feedback to do away with game leaving thousands upon thousands of players crushed many of them are now dropping their aol account which is what i will probably do. without a doubt one of the lowest stunts ever inflected on me.

I want to know why I can't play public sling anymore. I made friends on there and now I can't play. I want to know why? (09/15/2007)

We want Slingo Express back the way that it was. I downloaded the new one but I don't like it at all. Please get it back. (09/15/2007)

AOL get your act together and get the original Slingo express back on here. I know its all about money, don't you have enough? You own Time Warner. (09/16/2007)
I'm not loving the new slingo! I enjoyed playing and talking to people from all over at the same time. Bring back the old slingo express (09/16/2007)
I miss Slingo Express! Please bring it back! (09/17/2007)
Bring back old Slingo Express. Why do you have to mess with things? I've made a lot of friends in the years I've been playing, and accumulated millions of points. Bring it back. (09/18/2007)
Bring back Slingo Express! This new game is terrible!
I may have to leave AOL, if it doesn't come back to us! (09/18/2007)

Please bring back the old public slingo and the express slingo this new crap sucks . (09/19/2007)
By phyllis foster
This new slingo is horrible please bring back slingo and slingo express they were very enjoyable and kept you on your toes this new version is so slow and you really cannot chat with others with the way it is set up think about trying to fool the public. That's not fair thank you for your consideration (09/20/2007)
Got this email:
You may or may not know they have created a "new" Slingo. Almost everyone I have talked to does not really like it. In fact, most people I've talked to are very disappointed with it!!!
Contrary to belief, they have not "brought 'old Slingos' back." However, I have working links to:
Classic Slingo, X-Press Slingo & 5-Card Slingo ...these links will get you into the games.
Most of the screen names receiving this, I have played Slingo with over the years. This is not meant to be Spam, I will not send this out again. And, yes I am attempting to recoup/offset a minor amount in relation to the time I invested putting this together trying to reach, and help fellow Slingo players.
If you are interested in having the links to be able to play the "old styles" again; for a small convenience fee, as a service, I will provide them to you.
Before you order them, I included the link (above) to the: "Slingo Scores" page, if you want to verify points are being accumulated on the "old Slingos." Just pop in my screen name (Josemisc) on the Scores page.
If you want to have the links now vs. later, ...as service convenience fee(s):
Each link you request, is available for:
$4.00 per game link;
$5.00 for two (2) Game links; or
$6.00 for three (3) Game links.
Be specific in your email which link or links you want. Not responsible for your error.
Please use the: reply button in this email if you want the link(s). You'll receive an invoice with a link to pay via the PayPal system. I will never see any of your financial information. You'll only be invoiced if the link(s) are working at the time of your order. Once your payment is confirmed I will email you the links to the Game(s). Please allow up to 72 hours.
If you already have working links, then happy Slingoing! and please, disregard/delete this email. If enough positive response is received, then helpful information regarding this may be offered in the future. If this was informative or helpful, drop me an email. If you know someone else who may benefit from this, please forward it to them.
If you wish to not receive anything, please Reply to this email with the word "REMOVE" in the subject line.
(There may be other ways to acquire the links, for a fee or not.) (There are no guarantees how long the games may continue to work.)
I have attempted to filter out any duplicates: however, you may receive this under a different screen name. Otherwise, any duplicates I do apologize for. Thank You---William.

Apparently this guy found the secret to play the old slingo because his screen name actually comes up on the slingo high score list for the day. Anyone know the secrete link. (09/20/2007)
I'm thinking of changing to another server if we don't get slingo express back again. I will wait one month. I love slingo express it was so nice relaxing and winding down playing. Please give it back to us. I believe slingo was the only reason we all stayed with aol. oneeliza (09/20/2007)
I have played slingo for over 10 years and have seen some improvements over this time until now. I play almost everyday and it is relaxing and nice to be able to talk to others. This new version is a big let down and if you do not go back to Slingo Express or something very similar I will have to leave AOL. In fact slingo is what has kept me with AOL so long. There are a lot of other companys which are less expensive than AOl. I need to start looking for one of them I guess. (09/22/2007)
Oh my god,what have you done! slingo express gone. I hate this new game. (09/25/2007)
This is CRAP. I'm leaving AOL. (09/25/2007)
Bring back Slingo Express or I'm leaving AOL. (09/26/2007)
Bring the original slingo express back or im leaving aol its the only reason im with aol (09/27/2007)
Hate the new Slingo? Visit http://www.bringbackslingo.org and sign the petition that will be sent to aol and Slingo, Inc asking them to bring back the game true to it's original design. (09/30/2007)
Please bring back Slingo Express This one is a joke, who ever though of this new game should be shot or lose his job. I hate when these young people trys to made brownie point with dump idea's. (10/01/2007)
I have been playing slingo express for years and have met some nice people and just enjoyed playing the game, and to take it off without even an explanation is unbelievable. I will drop my AOL account in 1 month if the game is not brought back. (10/03/2007)
How do I get slingo express back? (10/04/2007)
By HBWEINSTEIN AT AOL.COM
I want so much for the old game to come back. Whoever thought of this new game should be fired. (10/05/2007)

I met my American penfriend on here whilst playing Slingo 6 years ago, we loved to chat and play the game. Please bring back the original version.This new version is AWFUL. (10/06/2007)
Give me a break! This new version of slingo is ridiculous. Boring and slow with no chance to chat with friends I have met over the years. You blew it with this new "improved" version of slingo. No one can or will play it. Kiss that ad $$$$ good-bye! (10/09/2007)
I have played the original SLINGO and SLINGO Xpress since 1995. It was a part of getting started everyday, like a cup of coffee. It was simple, convenient and friendly. Now it is none of those things and I quit it after trying the new version once. It is horrible. That it was changed the way it was is arrogance at its worst. AOL is complicit and responsible. They lost their customer focus a long time ago. Shame on them. (10/10/2007)
This new Slingo game is the pits! AOL has missed the mark allowing a beloved game that garnered and kept an awful lot of customers, fall by the wayside, and replaced it with this crap. Be smart AOL. You are losing customers over this. (10/13/2007)
I sure miss Slingo Express and My AWESOME CLOSEst friends. (10/14/2007)
I want Slingo Express back! I loved that game this new crap is boring and not fun at all. Please bring it back. (10/20/2007)

Please help get Slingo Express back. (10/21/2007)
By HAROLD W
PLEASE! AOL bring back our old favorite Slingo Express! The new and "improved" version is anything BUT new and improved. It is confusing, not fun, and I like playing with my old friends. We can't even find them anymore. Please listen to you customers! (10/22/2007)
Convenient is not the word for the new Slingo..It is slow, can't find old friends, takes too long to get on a game and is all around a VERY big mistake on someone's part at AOL. (10/28/2007)
I just tried to play the new Slingo for the first time. I don't know what this is, but it certainly isn't the game that I loved to play before. I won't be coming back until things are back to normal. Whoever came up with this new Slingo setup needs to be fired! (11/04/2007)
bring back the old express slingo, this new game sucks. (11/18/2007)
So what can i say here? I guess nothing. I guess aol doesn't really care if no one likes there new slingo game or not, as I see no responses from them to all of the many complaints. Well since they don't seem to care I think I will be dumping this aol. I'm really sick of paying over 30 bucks a month when i can go to earthlink for ten. i say we all start that movement. (12/01/2007)
Bring back the old slingo express. This new game is really bad. (12/14/2007)
By R Kurnik

Bring back slingo express it was the best! (12/29/2007)
Get back the original slingo express. I thought aol wanted to satisfied their customers. But so far they don't. We want the old slingo express. (01/04/2008)
AOl bring back the old slingo, this one sucks. (01/13/2008)

Boycott slingo's advertisers and demand the old game back! (01/31/2008)
Saying the same as most people, this new game is bad, been playing the old game for years and loved it. Met many people and accumulated many points, killed a lot of time for me. BRING BACK THE OLD GAME. (02/07/2008)
I cannot believe they got rid of Slingo. The new slingo is a joke. I'm just craving to play the old slingo xpress right now. It was much more solid of a game than this new one. BRING BACK THE OLD SLINGO! I used to be able to minimize aol and play the old slingo right on my desktop which made it even better. (03/02/2008)
I was forced to uninstall AOL and reinstall 9.1 and NOW my Slingo Express is GONE. This is Horrible. I played that for hours on end. Whatever that is out there now is JUNK. Why mess with a good thing like this? I'm depressed. Please bring it back. (03/07/2008)
Bring it back. I miss playing slingo express & chatting w/ people all over the world. Please please bring it back.
PLEASE bring back the old Slingo Express because this new crap really,really sucks. I used to stay up for hours on end to play it,but this new slingo is bad. I played with people from all over the world,and made a lot of friends also..SO PLEASE bring back the OLD SLINGO EXPRESS? (03/15/2008)
Please bring back slingo express. (03/25/2008)
Bring back public slingo. This was the best ever. (06/08/2008)
Geez after being on aol for 15 + yrs, they wanna screw it up. Makes you wonder why I don't find another IP. (07/13/2008)
Please bring back the original slingo express. This new one is terrible and not any fun. (07/20/2008)
Please bring back slingo express. I used to play it very often. I found it mentally relaxing. (07/22/2008)
By Susan S
Please bring back slingo xpress. The new ones aren't as fun. They really aren't anything like the original slingo xpress, please. (08/01/2008)
This slingo is awful. Bring back our favorite please. Can't you see how fed up I am? lol (08/07/2008)
Just do it Bring back express slingo. Go ahead aol make your customers happy. I have not played slingo since the company put on that terrible slingo. (08/08/2008)
By anna mcdonagh
What ever happened to customer service? Bring back free public slingo and don't have that stupid message that says "your free trial has run" out 5 seconds after one logs on! thousands are no longer interested in slingo because of your attitude!
