The Tombola bingo site uses unique software and – very unusually for an online bingo site – does not have any slots as such; instead there are games such as Pulse, Rollercoaster, Lucky 7 and the card game Cinco that you won’t find anywhere else. They also now have Tombola Arcade, a separate site with proprietary instant win games; this can be played with the same ID and wallet but you do need to log in again. Apple and Android apps are available for play on the go.
The lack of slots and the unique software make Tombola really quite different from other bingo sites and paradoxically the lack of slots is part of the reason why it is so popular as some players prefer not to have the temptation of slots especially if they are on a limited budget.
Another notable advantage of Tombola is that many of their bingo rooms have a maximum number of players allowed in the room (with multiple rooms available for every game and price point to accommodate everyone who wants to play) and the maximum number of tickets that each player is allowed to buy is relatively low (for some of the games it is one ticket per player). This ensures that the chance of winning doesn’t get too small. The 90 ball bingo is split into “clubs” to keep player numbers reasonable, but they periodically link together for big money games to give everyone the best of both worlds.
