Hex at Tombola Bingo
At Tombola Bingo, there’s a new bingo game called Hex. Not to be confused with the Relax Gaming exclusive HexaBingo, it continues the Tombola tradition of multi stake bingo games and this time it’s single ticket as well as multi stake. Available stake levels are 10p, 25p, 50p, £1 and £2 and for that, you get a “ticket” wth 10 numbers which appear on the top of hexagonal columns.
Hex is a 30 ball game, or rather it’s a 30 hexagonal slab game. The slabs drop down on to the central column and rotate and if the number matches one of the columns, that column drops away. If all your columns have dropped away, you’ve won – and that’s almost all there is to it.
Almost all, because Hex has a unique selling point, a 20% chance in each game of having your stake refunded.
The way it works is that before buying your ticket, you choose a stakeback colour – blue, purple, red, orange or green. Each slab has coloured edges and if the slab on which full house is won matches your chosen colour, you win your stake back. Once you’ve chosen a colour, it will be pre-selected for any further tickets you buy in the session unless you change it.
Hex also has two jackpots, 10,000x stake for winning in 12 drops and 1000x stake for winning in 14 drops. The RTP is guaranteed to be at least 80%.
Drop & Stack at Tombola Arcade
At Tombola Arcade two new games have been added, Drop and Stack. Both are accessible from the same mini lobby and have a retro video game vibe.
Drop (RTP 98.49%) is reminiscent of that classic vintage video game, Tetris. The differently shaped blocks drop on the left to be matched with their counterpart on the right; the matched blocks disappear and if you clear an entire column, you win the prize shown at the top of the column.
In Stack (RTP 98.5%), you open 6 crates at a time to try and build a column 6 blocks high – but beware, some of the crates contain bombs which destroy the block they land on.
Both games can be played at stake levels of 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p or £1 and in each case the top prize is 500x stake.
There’s certainly plenty of entertainment value to be had in all three of these new games, along with the lively chat that’s always to be found at Tombola.
