You’ll find tombola bingo really quite different from all other bingo sites.  Not only does it not have any wagering requirements in the usual sense of the word, it uses unique software and has many amazing games you won’t find anywhere else. The chat hosting, the proprietary bingo games and the promotions are in a league of their own.  We hope to be able to bring you a new and exclusive offer for tombola in late 2024.

tombola bingo

Unlike all other online bingo sites, tombola was famous for many years for not having any slots as such; instead it had (and still has) games such as Pulse, Paper, Morph, Stakeback (previously known as Hex) and the card game Cinco that you won’t find anywhere else.   Paradoxically, the lack of slots was part of the reason behind its enduring popularity as some players prefer not to have the temptation of slots especially if they are on a limited budget.

We say “was” because tombola brought in slot games a few years ago now – but rather than putting them in the bingo rooms, they have a separate site, tombola arcade (launched in July 2016), for their own low cost, high RTP instant win games (maximum £1 per play).  Players can use their tombola bingo login and wallet to access this site without needing to open a new account and the arcade site even has the same chat moderators, but because the instant win games are kept on a separate site to the bingo and require them to login again it is still easy for players to avoid temptation if that’s what they want.  The welcome bonus can also be used to play arcade games as well as or instead of bingo.

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.

As well as 90, 80, 75 and 50 ball bingo rooms, tombola have a unique 60 ball bingo variant plus a number of single ticket and/or multi stake bingo games which have clearly been designed to work optimally on a phone screen – Potion, Paper, and Blocks for example.  So if you get bored with one form of bingo, there’s always something different to try (and all have lively, hosted chat).

A new for 2022 innovation at tombola is time limited seasonally themed games with fun interactive features, for example Bloom which had a limited run in Spring 2022. There have been a number of other seasonal games and we expect to see more of them in the future.

In October 2022, tombola introduced Britain’s Biggest Bingo.  This £100,000+ game is unique amongst online bingo games in having 100% return to player and the first two games both ended up with a full house prize of more than £200,000.  It has been playing on the first of each month with advance ticket sales available during the previous month, but will be taking a break during summer 2023; we hope to see it back in the autumn.

They also have a daily free game (apart from in November and December when it’s replaced by I’m A Celebrity promotions and the tombola Advent Calendar).  Please see under Other Bonuses for further details.

Apple and Android apps are available for play on the go and were updated in Summer 2023 to add extra features.  All in all, there is much to recommend this unique bingo site – if you don’t already have an account there!
