Morph follows the lead of Picture Bingo (another new game from earlier in the year) in not having any numbers, and the lead of many other Tombola games including the venerable Pulse in being a single ticket, multi stake game which works well on a phone screen; it can be played for 5p, 10p, 25p, 50p or £1. The underlying game engine is 36 ball, but instead of balls and numbers there is a set of 36 shapes – or rather 6 shapes which come in 6 different colours.
Instead of a card, players have four strips of four coloured shapes arranged in a square. In the middle of the square is the Morpher – a white blob which changes shape then colour for each call to one of the 36 possible combinations of shape and colour. The player’s shapes are marked off when matched by the Morpher (this can be done manually or automatically as the player chooses, with no effect on the chances of winning as the game will catch up if a player gets too far behind with the daubing). Morph has prizes for one line and full house, plus fixed jackpots of 5000x stake for full house in 21 calls and 1000x stake for full house in 23 calls.
Morph is currently running in 4 rooms – Switch (purple), Phase (yellow), Flux (green) and Warp (blue). The games are not linked between rooms, but there is one chat room (very lively as always on Tombola) covering all 4 rooms. Tombola guarantee that the RTP of Morph will always be better than 80% and although not as good as Potion (where it is over 90%) this is still very good as online bingo games go.
Tombola are well known for treating their players well and there’s a perfect illustration of this in Morph; they have included a colour blind mode so that those who have difficulty distinguishing between the colours can still enjoy the game. Top marks for thinking of that!
Morph is simple to understand and relaxing to watch – yet another winner from Tombola!
