Worlds, A New Daily Game At Tombola

Worlds, A New Daily Game At Tombola


Sue Dawson

Worlds is a brand new daily game at Tombola Bingo and Tombola Arcade, launched on 7th January 2019 to replace their long running free game StarsTombola Worlds Game

As with Stars, in order to play Worlds you must have an account at Tombola, register a mobile phone number with them and be opted in for text messaging.  A code is sent to your phone which must be entered on site to gain access to the game for a week and you can choose whether to receive the text midnight Sunday, 9am Monday or midday Monday.

There the resemblance ends.  For a start, Stars was free to play and Worlds is not – it costs the princely sum of 1p per play and this has to be cash, not bonus.

There are a number of other differences too.

  • Stars had to be played every day for a week with prizes given out on the Sunday to anyone who marked off all the Stars on their card whereas Worlds is a true daily game with spot prizes so missing a day has no effect on play later in the week.
  • Stars could be played twice, once at each site, whereas Worlds can only be played once per day.
  • Stars had a prize fund that would be split between all winners regardless of the number of players whereas the prizes in Worlds are fixed and the more people play, the bigger the total winnings (the £35,000 is an estimate of how much they expect to give out each week but for the first week it looks to be well in excess of that).
  • Stars played a bit like bingo (although it was really a scratchcard) but Worlds resembles the popular Tombola Arcade instant game Bubble.

In Bubble, the minimum play is 5p and the maximum win is 400 x stake.  Pop the 28 bubbles and hope to complete a set of the same colour to win a prize.

Worlds is essentially a super high variance version, super high RTP version of the same game.  Press the spawn button to release 23 mystical characters from the building; they can be released one at a time by tapping the button or all in one go by holding it down.

Worlds Walkers

Watch them walk to their muster stations and complete a set to win a prize – but this time, the smallest prize is 500 x stake and the top prize an eye-watering 100,000 x stake!  A thorough reading of the game rules reveals that – at least for now – the RTP of the game will always exceed a whopping 500% (but Tombola do reserve the right to change this).

By 5.30pm on the first day, played in the Goblin Kingdom World, over £7000 had been given out in prizes including three wins of the £1000 top prize.

Worlds Winners

It appears that Worlds will be played in the Goblin Kingdom every day for the first week then switch to one of the other Worlds for the following week’s play, with a different background and set of characters (but probably the same paytable).

The big question is, will the Tombola Worlds game be as popular with players as the Stars game was?  We would hazard a guess that it’s going to be even more popular because there’s many more opportunities to win something and the game is not ruined for the rest of the week if you miss a day.  It’s not free, but who’s going to be bothered about spending just 7p a week?
