Picture Bingo - A New Game At Tombola

Picture Bingo - A New Game At Tombola

Sue Dawson

Picture Bingo is brand new at Tombola, replacing their Pirates game.  As you’d expect from the name, Picture Bingo has no numbers and no balls; instead, there are picture tiles and players can choose from three different rooms with three different themes.  The rooms all share the same chat but apart from in between 2am and 8am they run different games.

Tombola Picture Bingo Lobby

  • Circus – the tiles are circus perfomers and equipment
  • Mystery – the tiles are suspects and props from an Agatha Christie type murder mystery story
  • Pirates – the tiles are pirate characters and other items from the retired Pirates game.

All three Picture bingo themes are visually very entertaining, as every picture tile has its own animation that plays when it is drawn and every picture also has its own backstory which can be found in the Symbol Guide (on the dropdown menu on the left in game)

Players seemed particularly amused by the sword swallower animation from the Circus room.

Tombola Picture Bingo Mystery

The underlying game is played on 90 ball style cards, with fifteen pictures on a 5 x 3 grid, and there are 45 pictures altogether for each theme.  Prizes are for one line and full house and some games also have a prize for two lines.  Players can buy 1, 2 or 3 cards (a full strip containing all 45 pictures) for each game, at price levels from 5p – 50p per card.  The fixed jackpot of 2000 x card price is for full house in 26 calls or fewer.

Picture Bingo is much more like a regular bingo game than Tombola’s last new release Blocks was and apart from a few players upset about the removal of the Pirates game it seems to be getting a positive reception. As with many of their bingo games Tombola guarantee that the RTP of Picture Bingo exceeds 80% (which is pretty good for a bingo game).

The only snag is that all three rooms are EXTREMELY busy with hundreds of players all wanting to try the new game out so the chance of winning anything is currently small.  The prizes are sizeable though and the chat seems pretty lively.  It will be interesting to see how many of the players trying Picture Bingo out decide to go on to play the game regularly and how busy the rooms end up being going forward.
