When I tell people about Zyngo it’s always the same reaction “oh I have never played that” and you can sense the apprehension. I then explain if you know how to play Bingo, playing Zyngo is a piece of cake.
Just about every person I’ve gotten to try Zyngo returns to it. Not only is it fun but there are lindens to be won, and unlike those other ripoff Zyngo machines mine pays out daily, and all you need to have is the top score.
Some can be obsessive about about my Zyngo game. The machine at Dear Prudence really really really likes Yamarontoast Dagger (aka “Toastie”). Eggman beat Toastie’s score once and won a pretty pot of lindens, but after that the game seemed to say “Eggman we just had this fling. It was a great time, babe, but I’m going back to my true love, Toastie.”
Then there’s JP Lancaster who started as the king of Zyngo. JP was so good at handling the machine I sent notices out daring people to kick JP’s ass. Yes, Zyngo really liked JP at first, but my guess is JP played several other machines and Zyngo got jealous and dumped him. So now the machine’s heart belongs to Toastie. But for how long?
I’m the owner of the machine and it doesn’t let me win. Saying “Hey Zyngo, you’re supposed to let me win. I own you!” has no effect. If I put money into it I just make the pot bigger for Toastie to win.
Eggman (John Lennon) recently threw “give peace a chance” out the window regarding Zyngo. He was pumping lindens into it and devils kept taking half his score; sometimes he’d get so close only to have his dreams shattered in the 20th round. He finally lost his temper. “I WILL beat Zyngo!” He meant it too. I took a photo to prove that Eggman can beat Zyngo.
