About tombola

Tombola Bingo is one of the UK’s biggest and most popular bingo sites, with over 14 different styles of gamesover numerous rooms and all featuring the presence of a vast army of chat moderators working hard to ensure players are happy and informed, so as well as their exclusive games and big jackpots it’s also one of the most friendly sites around.

The stakes are not high and are within everyone’s reach – to max any game the most you would have to spend is just £2. Up to £500 can be deposited at the site in any week that runs from Monday to Sunday and in fact the site recommends a top limit of £250 per week – especially for new players..

It’s worth noting that this is the only bingo site that does not offer an option to play slots. This site is all about the bingo and the different and entertaining ways it can be played. However, the company did launch a sister site in 2016 called tombola Arcade that does feature more instant style games and slots – all of a unique nature.

Website

www.tombola.co.uk

Launched

2005

Licence

UK

One of the reasons the site has been so successful is that they design and build all their games in-house so you won’t find them on any other website, this enables them to customise their games to their players’ tastes.

New player offer

New players are welcomed with a 200% deposit match on a deposit of £5 to £25. £50 is the maximum amount available in bonus funds. Deposit £10, play with £30 or deposit £25 and play with £75. Added benefit here is you keep what you win.*

Bonus funds cannot be used on certain games – please see site for details.

*18+. New players only. Any winnings can be withdrawn without wagering. See website for full T&C. Please gamble responsibly.

Games available

Tombola offers a selection of bingo games that are unique to the site. Click on the links below to see examples of gameplay:

  • Bingo 90
  • Bingo 80
  • Bingo 75
  • Bingo 60
  • Bingo 50
  • CINCO
  • Bingo Roulette
  • tombola Roulette
  • Pulse
  • Hamster Race
  • Lucky 7
  • Pirates
  • Stars

Battleships and Bandit were removed from the site in September 2017 due to low player numbers. Bandit in particular was a victim of the success of tombola Arcade with real spinning becoming available.

Withdrawal and wagering

  • Minimum withdrawal: £10
  • Processing time: 48 hours
  • Bingo wagering requirement: Any winnings can be withdrawn = bonus funds can never be withdrawn.

See website T&Cs for further details as requirements may have changed since the time of writing.

Id and proof of address and payment type may be requested before a withdrawal is made and will definitely be requested each time a total of £2,000 in withdrawals is reached.

Promotions

£7 million is won every week by thousands of lucky winners. There is a progressive jackpot in bingo 90 which is won nearly every day as it is set to trigger at 40 calls, but does sometimes reach £20,000.

Some of the most popular games on the site also have huge jackpot prizes, including £20,000 in Cinco and Pulse and £10,000 in Bingo Roulette.

Stars – There is a weekly free game called Stars where you can win a share of £30,000. Players get a unique code sent by SMS every week to access the game. Play on tombola AND tombola Arcade for two chances to win a prize each week. Six numbers per day will be released. Collect just 25 from your game to be in the money and take a share of that £30,000.

All promotions will come with specific terms and conditions so be sure to check at the site before taking part.

tombola on mobile and tablet

Mobile site:
Tombola has a great mobile experience, with every game available via their mobile site with the exception of Pirates, Lucky 7 and Rollercoaster which are only available on desktop.

The simplicity of tombola’s games mean they are perfect for the smaller screen sizes of mobile and the restricted tickets mean you can see all your cards in one view.

iPhone / iPad:
Tombola have a dedicated iOS app for both iPhone and iPad, which looks almost identical to their mobile site, but with fewer games.

Bingo60, Bingo70 and tombola Roulette are all currently absent from the app but can be played via the mobile site.

Android:
Tombola can be downloaded to Android devices via the Google Play Store. Again, it looks the same as their mobile site but does not have Bingo60, Bingo70 or tombola Roulette.

Worst customer service I’ve ever come across. They admitted errors that their technical team cannot fix and said that’s just the way it is. Wtf? I withdrew my funds and joined another bingo site. Avoid if you don’t want stress and problems. Wished I checked their reviews before giving them my personal details.

I absolutely love tombola. I have deposited thousands, but I have also won thousands. I’ve never had a bad experience until now. I tried to login last week but it said my account being disabled. I gave them a call and they said I need to send them some ID for a security check, they said it would take 72 hours. I gave them a call today for them to tell me to call back on Wednesday. I’ve been with tombola for many years so it’s quite upsetting that I need to prove who I am now after all this time. Like I say I’ve never had a bad experience until now. Hopefully I’ll be back to playing soon:)

I have deposited quite a bit of money now and not a single win. very disappointed with the tombola site, I thought I would have had at least one decent win out off around £100. not at all happy.

In my opinion this is the worst online bingo site. I have been a member for years and never won, maybe £10 here and there, but the amount I’ve deposited it’s ridiculous. Chat hosts seem to have their favourites and seems very strange that favourites win all the chat games. Save your money don’t play on tombola.

I play tombola most the time and I enjoy it.
Tombola is my favourite bingo site and I have seen a huge numbers of players in the link games. Most players won from small to big amount of money. I don’t feel anything if anyone won twice or three times – it’s their lucky day! Some players are lucky and some are not. We shouldn’t be moaning. Some players want to win all the time. They should think there are other players also need to win. My review is based on my experience with tombola and respect all the CMs working day and night to make all players happy.

Some small minded players – chat hosts who block you because the regular players tell them to – there is no PM to the host and some hosts don’t even know about live chat. If you send an email to customer support they say they don’t discriminate against anyone, but then ring a registered user who is deaf and mute.
If you query anything further they disable your account. Bosses must be laughing all the way to the Bank. Avoid at all costs !!

i have been a member for many years it used to be a fun good site to play on, but now there are so many people playing and you have very little chance of winning it seems to be all the same names. I have just played and the same name kept winning.
As for the arcade that is a waste – never win at all in there. You can spin £1 a spin and lucky to win 20p. Its such a shame as like the site, but it is disheartning that all you do is deposit and very rarely withdraw and lets face it, you go on these sites to win and not like the cms say it should be for fun.
I complained about the way a cm spoke to me a few months ago and since then i have had no luck so my advice dont complain. i think if you play a slot if you win it should meen win so more than your wager its laughable when you stake £1 and its says you won and its 20p. How is that a win? it should say sorry lost 80p.

Love this site despite it’s drawbacks. It’s definitely my favourite, and I’ve played on loads in the past. It has the best bingo games and I also like Arcade although I’m trying to stay off it at the moment because the Emoji game is too addictive!
The jackpots are attainable and go at least once a day in most rooms, unlike most sites where the JP’s are rarer than hen’s teeth. I’ve won two JP’s on this site, one in Bingo Lite and the other in Pulse. Both were a couple of hundred each so not a fortune, but nice nevertheless. I’ve also withdrawn lots of times, I think my biggest was probably £700, but I withdrew two lots of £500 within days of each other just a few months ago. Mind you – I’ve spent a flipping fortune on the site over the years, but that’s gambling for you.

I’m not a chatter, but the chat rooms are no better or worse than other sites – the usual moaning about the same winners, it’s fixed, etc. Some of the bingo rooms have the option of no chat which is great.

So all in all it’s a great site that I recommend. The only reason I gave it four stars rather than five is because I feel they could give a little bit to loyal players. There’s no deposit bonuses, no free games (well, apart from that daft ‘Stars’ game they have running at the moment which is just annoying), and although they give players a free fiver twice a year I just think they could show a bit more appreciation for the people who have been at the site for years and been regular depositors. Maybe some sort of loyalty programme? If they sorted that out it would be a definite five stars from me.

Totally disgusting. Dont waste your money, my wife and i have been members for over 18 months and never won a thing hand on heart. they just take it all. Even when we play bingo same result. We flash on one number but never a win. I understand its gambling as we all do, but come on no wins ever?
I for one am closing my account. I don work hard to be robbed and it would be nice to at least win a tenner, or a fiver would be good. Its a shame as most sites seem to be going in the same direction (greedy. Same winners time after time some win two three in a row, so why cant we at least have one win.
As for the Stars free game – thats a joke in its self. the only people who win has to be the big hitters as thats where they get there money from really.
its so obvious when you play and see the same thing over and over again. The only site i have found thats any good is Heart bingo, I lose there too but at least at times i win something.
Avoid tombola at all costs think they all need a shake up really.

Same Winners All The Time. Boring keep seeing “Mummy to whoever” has won – for the third time in a row ….. yet you spend £10 worth at 10p and keep getting 1tg, or 3 of your number out of 28 called out. To me it just seems fixed ! Don’t waste your money.
They reel you in with good offers when you place real money, may let you win once . Then after nothing at all. Waste .

And the stars game??? Please, do you really think that will encourage us to come back and deposit again? After logging in and playing this ridiculous stars game where, strangely enough, you never get close? Yes, I will go on to deposit so you can reward the same old players as usual. This site needs looking into big time!

Just an up date on this site since posting this review – I have won nothing at all. i dont know if anyone else has had the same problem after putting a review. the tombola arcade well where do i start. total waste of money. i read the chat as i play and a certain few keep saying they have won several top prizes and is always the same names. i have noticed if there are a lot of players complaining of poor winnings all of a sudden some one starts saying i have won x amount today started with pence and now have several hundred.
come on tombola how much do you pay your staff to right on the chat its obvious this site needs looking into its about time someone did .

Nice variety of rooms, lots to play for .. thats if your the lucky one. I’ve found it very hard to win here, but Arcade is a good feature gives you a better chance of keeping you playing.. Some cms are really good and friendly, but sometimes find them coming back into the room but not really saying much.. so bit more interaction would be good as i seem to find better interaction on smaller sites. When in a really busy room and pickin first correct in chat games in all 5 games makes it unfair for slower speeds or slower typers as you dont get much of a chance.
So yeah it is good with good money to play for if your willing to put lots in to give yourself a better chance of winning big.

I used to love Tombola but have found myself increasingly frustrated at the amount of time between wins on the site. The Pulse game can eat your funds in no time and you may not even get close to a win; the same can be said for Cinco, a fun game, but not when you have played every day for a week and not even getting close to a win.
I know this is gambling and I except that, but the thing that upsets me the most are the CMs who attacked you vocally if you start to complain about not getting any luck on the site.
A site is as good as the way they treat their clients and tombola absolutely sucks at that, I would mark the games a 4 star review but because of the staff and bad luck I’m giving them a 2.

The chat hosts are awful / if you ask where to PM them they say no such thing but live chat is available. If you disagree with chat hosts they block your chat. If you go to customer support email they disable your account.
It used to be good back in 1998 but so much has changed so much it is not the same. As you say far too “clicky now”.

They disabled my account for no reason, when I asked them on live chat to help me I went all the way through security checks to be told they can’t discuss accounts on live chat and that I had to call in. When I called I was cut off several times and mocked by the customer service agent.
I had to send in my passport photo to prove who I was despite answering all of the questions correctly, including my security question. It was just very inconvenient and quite unnecessary. However, karma came around shortly after, my boyfriend played his free £5 off from a friend code I sent him, and won £2,200 without depositing a penny. Needless to say he took the money and ran. We both subsequently closed our accounts down. Take that Tombola!

Laughs down the phone at you for asking a question she must have thought she put me on hold but didn’t instead they made fun of me and were laughing at me. I am disabled and they were making a fool out of me! Made me feel extremely upset and stupid.
They disabled my account for 3 months for sending emails as they said my comments were concerning? Whats concerning is staff making a fool out of members and I’ve recently found out on facebook I’m not the only one!!!
After the 3 months they decided to add another month on! So I contacted them after the month to receive an email saying my accounts been terminated! In a way Im glad as they were messing me about I was just some kind of joke to them. They mocked me and spoke to me unlike anyone has! Been left extremely upset by the whole experience.

I have read some reviews about it being a fix, same winners and complaints like that, yes it is frustrating on any bingo site that seems to be same winner but i have had lucky streaks and ive been one of those same winners, but the folk moaning wont know i may have been playing for ages without a win, it was just my luck that particular time.
I really dont think a site that have thousands of players depositing everyday would be so stupid. i highly recommend Tombola . xiluvbingox

Totally agree with you lornaxiluvbingo. I have been a member for many years now and have been lucky as they say “you win some, you lose some”. Tombola is the only site that doesn’t rip you off with their bonus wagering offers and you are able to withdraw without any bother! Yes you do see some same winners but these players spend quite a bit and don’t bother with all the other rip off sites, so good luck to them! Tombola also show you their winners who are all genuine people, you just never know when your luck will be in so it comes as a nice surprize.
My surprize came in 2010 when I won the £9k JP, also the week before my friend from the same Town as me won the £15k JP! So people don’t give up you never know when it will be your lucky day!

Beware playing tombola – if one of your Playmates is lucky enough to win regular through pure luck, Tombola disable their account to ‘INVESTIGATE’.
Not only do they disable that account, they disable ALL accounts linked to it via playmates! I have had my account disabled due to having a ‘Winner’ as a playmate but not only did they disable their account, but also mine AND my partners who is MY playmate until they complete their ‘investigation’.
We have done nothing wrong, except play and win. Good luck everyone, but remember, if you get lucky too often, they’ll disable your account, and your playmate’s and their friends accounts without warning and give you no idea why or how long for!!.
She’s tried Customer Support Team and she’s tried the fraud and security team and still nothing. Customer services, WHAT customer services, they’re a disgrace!!!

Wouldn’t bother, was a tombola member for years, got to the point where i had self excluded myself for 12 months because i had not even been able to win a line in 14 months solid.
I came back and still the same rubbish tickets and deposit after deposit.
Used to be such a good site, but i find it painstakingly boring now. i’m sure tombola could not care less about the many that moan as they are raking it in.

tombola is the most miserable site to play on. Far too many players in rooms and if you manage to get into a room all you get is moaning,which is not conducive to enjoyment!!!! They keep advertising for more and more people to join, which makes things worse.
Also they do not give anything for loyalty, unless you count a free fiver once a year. The free game is absolute rubbish, not worth the bother of playing, and the chat games are pathetic.

I’ve been a member of Tombola for about 9 years. I must say I am not very lucky on there, even thou I spend a fortune. I have never won a jackpot either. Seems I must be very unlucky or have a really bad IP address. I do often wonder how so many of the same names pop up so frequently. Oh well that’s the gamble I guess.
Just wish I had stayed away all those years ago. My sister and Mum are both members also and are just as unlucky as me lol.

Tombola has a very repetitive pattern of giving you a small win (if your lucky) and then nothing after. I have played there for the last 2 years and have never won a jackpot or any large amounts.
The 28 days of summer free game is laughable. They state that you have the chance to win anything up to 10k when actually you will only win 5.00. And that is decided (in my opinion) before you login each day to play. Bingo lite is as boring as it gets, waiting forever for numbers and rarely get a 1tg. I don’t chat in the rooms as there seems to be established “friendships” there.
On a positive note, there is a wide range of games and no slots. And payouts are quick with PayPal.

I really like tombola, but there is a but….its great that tickets are cheap, yes,ive had some small wins and some of promos are good and there is some really lovely members on there, who in my opinion really look out for each other, care about the site, and ive had some good old laugh out loud laughs with some.
But heres the but..lol, unlike almost all other sites now, they do not do any loyalty bonuses, or loyalty points based upon your deposits, there is no birthday bonuses like most sites do, and they do not offer any deposit bonus codes by random like some sites do.
So if you are on a loosing streak for months, you may feel you are loosing out all the time, as there is not anything for loyalty.
It is looking a bit old fashioned now, maybe needs a facelift. But im not running it completely down as i like the site. Its simple, we all have the same chance, prices are very good value, and theres some really lovely, decent players, but as i said…maybe bonuses,or points for loyalty, as theres some members on there who really do spend big here. be lucky all..xx

Delete this awful site from your browser, memory and bad dreams, i am gonna set up a face book page ‘no more tombola’ – I know the lucky winners won’t join, but there are a lot of non-winners who might. please look me up #no more tombola!

Don’t know about the ‘bad dreams’ bit but, hey ho you go for it! I can’t think of a single thing that would make me want to play bingo on tombola, their moderators are worse than useless if you ask them anything, they are not up to speed with any info, they have to ask someone a bit more tech savvy on the most basic things you ask. I get the feeling they are people who just need a bit of part time work to pay the bills with no knowledge about internet gaming, who also think rudeness is part and parcel of their job.

We don’t need these type of individuals in the online gaming industry. But people have a choice, put up with inane comments you see on tombola, rubbish games hugely over subscribed, and you constantly up-feeding your account because you are finding the odds of gaining a half decent win diminishing each time you play over on it or save your hard earned money go elsewhere. Some bingo companies are offering a lot more start-up joining fees than tombola, they are still stuck in the pay 10.00 play with 30.00 ha ha – most people want a bit more to join up than just twenty quid!

Tombola has gone really down hill. Same winners day in day out. Also same people winning jackpots day in day out. CM’s are rubbish. There comes a point that you get sick of seeing same people winning all the time and if you say anything all the CM’s minions jump on you. You can count on here is that you will just be topping up.

Tombola don’t like any negative comments whatsoever. Their chat room host robots sneak around monitoring what is been said on the comments boards during games. Probably to stifle any negative comments which gives you an idea how desperate they have become lately, loll.
Most of the games on it are totally worn out now, it really is old fashioned over there, even the chat room hosts are boring as heck reading from worn out scripts, the same tired phrases, the magic dust for the roomies!!! Seriously how long have they been churning out this spiel.
Check out other Bingo sites, you know what is going on over there, just make that change to another site, Cheers

I really do hope that they don’t block winners on this site. Today I played the link game in lites and after 34 numbers called I was left waiting for one number which I would have been in contention for the jackpot (call on 43 numbers or under to win jackpot) . A further 20 numbers were called but not the one I was waiting on.
I know it’s a game of chance, but there’s always that doubt in your mind. I really hope that it is above board as I do enjoy playing at tombola.

I’m new to Tombola just 2 weeks in and my first ever 40p bingo game and I won 10.00. Not won on any bingo or other games since. Theres 100’s of players in each room so have no chance of winning again.
I’ve been told no reload bonus, so won’t be putting anymore into this site once all my cash is gone, but they have a free SMS game and won 20.00 first week, but nothing 2nd week, but you have to spend 2.00 a week cash from your balance not bonus.Unless you have loads of cash spare to put into playing on this site I would stay away.

This site seriously needs investigating in my opinion. If your a player on there now you will know what I mean when I say “blocked from winning”. Some of the amazing things I have seen as a player – serious multiple player winners all day, defying the actual laws of random probability!!!
The CMs are vile. It’s so true what others have said about the chat rooms being hostile and bitchy. I have seen people get verbally bashed from players and CMs. I even had one goading me and trying to bait me into an argument even after asking/stating I didn’t really want to discuss anything further and wished all the players in that room good luck and the CM still carried on with statements and bitchy comments. Even had a few of the rare nice players saying the CM had been a bit harsh and out of order that CM left 2 mins later saying that they was due in another room.
Customer service are like planks of wood responding with automated scripted messages -we use RNG software bla bla bla and take 3 days to “Investigate an incident”.
Feel free to join maybe you will get the “beginners luck” everyone seems to get, but If an old fashioned outdated site is for you go for it!!

Hi skyelord. The rating is based on many factors. Range of games, support, mobile capability, withdrawal rules etc., etc.In all these areas tombola scores well.

When it comes to reviews from customers, it is a fact that unhappy customers are more likely to ‘vent’ on sites like WhichBingo than happy players say how much they like something, but we are happy to show both and allow readers to then make their own decision.

I shouldn’t be too concerned about these part time chat room staff people playing on their games, after all, they are on the minimum wage and need to try boost up their salaries! hah!, And if there was a way of any of them getting better odds of winning bingo games, then surely you wouldn’t see any of them working the unsociable hours they have to if they were serious winners!
But getting back to who’s winning what over there, my guess is sooner or later online bingo sites will have to be a lot more transparent than they are now. In the meantime choose some of the other online sites from this website, thanks.

Tombola is a very cliquey site.

Within seconds player after player left nasty remarks which can only be described as bullying. I was so disgusted I left the room!
And why are CMs allowed to play the games?? One cm said. ” it’s bank holiday and I’m hoping for a big win”. Surely that is against all the rules! I really have lost faith in Tombola!

I worked for Tombola for many many years. We were never allowed to play the games it was completely banned. We could not register an account or play on the site, neither could our immediate family (that lived with us). Saying that, years ago TOMBOLA was much better, the chat rooms have slowly declined over the years, and noticed as more and more people joined, less and less people won, as they didn’t really increase the numbers of games in relation to the players.
People become more upset about not winning, and it was down to the sheer volume of players. During my long time there it became less and less fun, as the players were not enjoying it do much any longer, thus getting very negative rooms crammed to the rafters with people desperate for a win. If they had increased their games 10 fold to match the influx of new players the moaning, cliquey rooms would never of started.
It was hard sometimes being a cm, having to follow the rules in chat, and dealing with people who were at the end of their tether.
I hope roomies remember me as a fairer, kinder less harsh and caring cm rather than the ones now who think banter and cheap shots are the way to get though a shift. I much preferred good conversations.

Tombola is a well run bingo site, but lately I have had a run of not winning a single thing. Got down to many 2tg and 1tgos, so I thought what I would do is and I hope no one copies me, I would max out on my games spending a lot more than I would normally do.
This was a total disaster, which got me thinking. if Im maxing out on every game buying a lot of tickets then still not winning, how do the people who keep winning the full house big roll-on prizes seem to keep winning them? if they are winning the big full houses on max tickets and I was only buying a smaller number of tickets then by reasonable logic, I would have thought I would have an even playing field of having the same percentage of chances as the other players who keep winning the biggest progressive prizes but no.
Please do not spend more than you can afford chasing a progressive, not unless you are blessed with having incredible luck on tombola.

I agree! And I found that maxing out didn’t give me a better game. I also found that playing in lites was impossible to win anything and on many games I would only want 4tg on 30 numbers and still end up wanting 4 tg at the end of the game and this would happen regularly! Is it luck? I’m not so sure!!

Very disappointed with Tombola Bingo. Same old same on it i’m afraid to say with same winners of the jackpots all the time. I mentioned it on live chat and the chat room moderator who wasn’t even in this room at the time, came flying back in to my room to try telling me it was all down to luck!
When I said it was incredible odds for these small selective people to keep winning the main full house prizes I was banned from chat for one hour which came up on my screen saying I had violated the ‘chat rules’ ?
Seems like any honest challenges imho to tombola is not permitted on their page so if we are not allowed to voice our opinions and there is NO way of turning off their chat pages then Im calling it a day now and scouting around for another bingo site that doesn’t have these same winners winning all the full houses on the major cash prizes that have rolled over to vast sums.
Also they don’t have any slots, instant scratch cards, so it is just boring old bingo, hamster races pfttt, with awful odds stacked against you as a savvy player.

I was going to join tombola bingo, but having read the reviews on hear decided against it and 2 to stick with a friendlier bingo company called “”take a break bingo”. I certainly advise any disgruntled players to try this 1. You wont find stroppy and rude mods on there bcos they actually realise that if you treat the customers with respect they stick with the big company. So don’t put up with bad customer service or frustrated badly paid mods who just don’t get how to treat people who actually pay there wages. They should remember that without the playing public they would be out of a part time job. It really is not rocket science is it?

The tv adverts say they give 6mill in pay outs every week, they say it like they know how much will be dished out in winnings which kind of makes me feel a bit suspicious that they already know before hand how much will be won huh? Anyway, like others have previously mentioned the biggest prizes seem to be won by people who join in a game with a big prize, win it, then vanish completely, u never see them playing on any other bingo games before or after the big prize games which seems a bit out of the ordinary.
If u question anything about the same people winning the big prizes u are attacked by the troll Cms and their other Cms playing as “players” ? ? ? tombola is just a another bingo site and not a very good one at that.
Save your cash on this one as it will bleed u dry, try some of the others on this website, there are some good bingo sites to choose from and remember don’t put up with tombola just for the sake of it. . . . . check out the others, the paying public deserve better and one has a choice as they say lol

Like some other bingo sites this one allows their CMs to play on their games. It is wrong abd should be stopped at once. No CMs should be allowed to take part in any form of gambling on any bingo sites, otherwise there will be speculation that all is not as it supposed to be. It is about time the online gaming regulators stopped any gambling by those working on these sites.
We also need a new broom to sweep out the stables and dirt left behind by some of the low standards CMs and get some fresh new CMs into online bingo. Tombola is probably one of the biggest online operators out there, but have to agree with the comments that these same winners of the top notch prizes is bug bear (get rid of staff playing these games-less of a suspicion?) and get their CMs back on some re-training. One guy even tried propositioning me on it!
Like I say, get CMs back to treating people with some respect and maybe ban staff from gambling and clean up their act all round is what is desperately needed in the online gaming industry.

Try Moon Bingo if you are fed up with this Tombola one. Loads of slots good start up offers and much more friendlier people who value customers and are not afraid to hear suggestions as to ways to make things run smoother.
Customer feedback is a good way of gauging opinion and in the long run helps the players and online operator to make better company.
Mentioned this site we are on now to another player I was chatting to on Tombola and then the online moderator warned me of advertising another rival bingo company. I tried explaining this site is not a bingo company, and was then shut off from chat and got a tetchy E mail from them.

Tombola is an alright site. The site offers loads of unique games, you won’t find anywhere on other bingo sites. Tombola offers bingo 90, however, sadly, they do not offer many bingo rooms, so you get hundreds of players in each bingo game.
Bingo 80 room has hundreds of players too. In bingo 80, you need to call the full house within 45 calls to win 500.00, which is good as it’s won a few times each day. If your a fan of bingo 75, you may want to try it on Tombola. Sometimes you get over 100 players, sometimes less, but rarely 200 players. MAX cards is only 1.00 in there, so you can’t spend too much each game. MAX tickets in bingo 80 is also 1.00, and it’s 2.00 in 10p bingo 90 rooms. You can also play 2p bingo and MAX is 40p.
Tombola does not offer any side games so if you just wanted to play bingo, without worrying about playing side games, then you should give this site a try!

Improvements: A couple more rooms for bingo 90.

Cant agree tombola is any better than the majority of the online bingo sites around. Fairly mediocre I found it, but peoples expectations can differ depending on what floats their boat.
I would not recommend it, people should try the smaller online bingo sites, better value for money and on the plus side *more* chances of a win! Also if you choose a site with some slots and scratch cards/instant wins it will give you an opportunity to break the boredom of wondering why you ever joined in a bingo game where you are competing against mind boggling number crunchers every game!

And if you rummage through the reviews on here you’ll see the representatives of some firms will respond to comments made by players who have passed a comment or two, but when it comes to Tombola no one in official capacity will come on to this site to take on board any of the comments, which doesn’t give a person much confidence when deciding which one to sign up to. Maybe the Cms should come on here and go through the concerns of players. They are probably not up to discussing like adults any legit points raised, like showing winning bingo tickets in screen shots. oh & that is not moaning Cms, that is a good genuine 1st class point raised and its about time some brave Cm from them came on here to discuss the points, oh yes.

Oh where do you start with this one? You will keep topping up your account unless you have a strict limit on your gambling. The bingo games are churned out super fast. Same names seem to win all the big pots, and players are expected to say “thank you” (TY) to the bingo hosts on the live forum if they win even a small prize!
The grovelling and loyalty to “please” shown by some regulars to the host company and the chat employees is really stomach turning. All in all thumbs down on this one, poorly run and a cash drain on your account. Far too many players to give you a realistic chance of a small prize and the big games are won by the usual suspects who vanish from screen once they scooped the big prizes!

In this day & age I would of thought Tombola would have had the technology like other smaller bingo sites that do include showing players winning tickets like on 1line, 2line then a f/house you can see for yourself the player has won that prize & are waiting for such an such a number for 2lines or a f/house. Seriously Tombola you need to get with it in 2015, need a complete overhaul over there & that includes their Cms lol.

I have been playing at tombola for 2 years and have won quite a few small amounts. I enjoy the experience and will continue to play there. My only negative is the free daily game “go fish”. I think that you have to be a big depositor to win anything on this game.
I had a splurge one week and spent more than I normally would and I won 5.00 on the free game. I normally spend between 20.00 to 30.00 each week and haven’t won since. Has anyone else won on this game without depositing big?

The amount of moaners here is unbelievable. Do you even have the smallest concept of what gambling is? You will win some, but more than likely you’ll lose. That’s the risk u take, bet for a chance at winning big. In some games you’re playing with hundreds of other people, that’s 1 in (lets say) 200 chance of winning.
Sure, some people will win more than once, that’s the way it goes, but saying it’s the same winners all the time is laughable. If that was the case no one else would win. I’ve been playing for about 4 years now and only won about 300 altogether, but would never dream of dissing the site as i know the meaning of the word “gambling”.
CMs are the best part about this site, friendly, funny and welcoming. Think its a bit unfair to say the CMs are rude, sure there will be some who clash with your personality and you won’t get along with, but all do there best to make the place friendly. Love frazzles and minimilk, but i do clash with thunder and magnum.
The only people who i think will have something bad to say are the ones who break the chat rules, they there for a reason.
About the “they let you win when you join then take it all”, hahaha seriously? what utter nonsense, sure this might happen to some people, but some may never win, or some may continue to win…thats because, guess what, ITS GAMBLING. I went on sun bingo, got down to about 1.00 won 50.00 then put it back in and got nothing…why? BECAUSE ITS GAMBLING. I wouldn’t diss Sun because of it, that’s just the way it works.

Features:
– Fair and friendly site with lots of different ways to play bingo.
– Great CMs always there to help you and have a laugh
– No crazy amounts of betting, £2 is max

The only bad thing i do have to say about them is there chat games. they feel old and out dated, need some flashier ones to go along with their text based quizzys.

All in all. If you want a great, fair and friendly site, join tombola.

Don’t agree with your comments. Same named biggy winners on it – open your eyes, it is there for all to see. As for chat rules, on this one the rules only apply to the players. It seems the cms break the rules they try to implement. It really is not a great online bingo site. They need some slots on it or side games,m because boring old bingo with the same biggy named winners on the big pay outs is a bit much if you ask me matey, lol.

Several people not just one have mentioned how Tombola pay the same names constantly. I also have seen this for myself, although its never me or anyone I know winning constantly, Its always the same few names, and I do know a lot of people who play or have played on this so called “random” site. I do not and will not ever trust on line gambling because of this site!

Making observations about personal experiences on bingo sites, whether they be positive or negative is what this website is all about! get over yourself if you are so upset over it!
So okay, i’m a player on about a dozen different bingo sites, including this one. Some are better than others. I don’t rate tombola it used to be “better” a few years ago, but I cant be fussed with it now, and I take on board people who say the same winners keep winning the big J-pots. I don’t know if this is true ( but if it is true, then who are we to disagree with other peoples views? it is their view end of! ) You claim CMs are the best part of this site?!? Your view and you are entitled to it, others are saying they are rude, ignorant, and basically not wanted! Its all about opinions. My own view is on this site is they are mostly very boring people who if they never turned in for a shift on this site, they probably wouldn’t be missed by the majority of players! But if you look around there are a lot of bingo sites now to choose from, don’t get sucked in to the cheesy ramblings by some people that only tombola is the best around, it is not now IMO, but probably was years ago when there wasn’t that many bingo sites to choose from.

After reading carefully through the list of ‘ varied ‘ opinions on Tombola , i thought i would give it a go myself. Joined, deposited and received a nice deposit bonus for my troubles. Played games, spent my money and never won.

Wow! there must be a rabbit off? Oh no there isn’t as it is called ‘ gambling ‘, as you’re not guaranteed to win! It’s hilarious to read through the comments here nearly for every site that it is the same names popping up with the negative comments (which are people who clearly have a gambling problem, but yet to admit it) .

Honestly people, grow up! It’s a game … never spend what you cannot afford to lose !!!

For people who want a gaming experience, with differing games other than boring 90’s try this site. Ignore the other comments on here as it is clearly sore losers who have no social life .

While i finish writing this i best pen a letter to Camelot to claim all my money back after not winning on the National Lottery. Jesus man, makes you laugh!!

I have been on tombola 2 years and withdrew 40.00 only once out of hundreds of deposits. It is the same winners constantly and if you moan about anything the cm’s have a go at you for being “negative” then the cm suck ups join in. It is by far one of the worst sites i have had the disadvantage to come across so don’t expect to go on and win a jp as you will be lucky to win at all.
I do not know how this site wins awards as it is an absolute joke and it definitely is not random in my opinion.

Joined Tombola few months ago but noticed the “big winners” seems to be the same people winning, not sure if these are professional gamblers who stake vast amounts on the big prizes, or, they are just very lucky players.
Something smells a bit fishy over there as I find it incredible that the same people could possibly be that lucky on winning jackpots and the biggest prizes.
Also the chat side of it and some of the comments made by the mods border on people from the gutter, Lol.

tombola has massive playing figures on the games so they don’t really care what anyone thinks; except the Cms who are most probably instructed to shut down any negative comments during games.
Even one of the cheapest games on the site “Bandit” had massive numbers of players playing for the prize of, wait for it, you’ll like this…. 1.50 lol.
I don’t rate the cms either who are all named after cheap sickly candy bars! give it a swerve; hopeless; it really is.

Worst site ever. 300.00 and not one single win, yet same players winning 3-4 times. Complete joke. Then when you say anything the chat hosts threaten to mute you. Their attitude stinks unless your in with the crowd. Avoid as you will end up wasting your cash. They say it’s a random game yet you can predict you need the same amount of numbers as your last game.

Worst site ever. Lure you in with winnings and then take your money you continue to pump money in and after weeks of non-winning you are money out and dishearted – the class of people playing leaves a lot to be desired. Put their money in and talk about their personal lives and then plead, plead to win – never again.
Tombola is rubbish and deserves to be reported to the gambling authorities – good riddance to bad rubbish

I’v been with tombola for 6 years, and never won a jp, I have noticed the same jackpot winners keep on winning jackpots some have won 10..seriously!! When its almost impossible to even win a game I also noticed that if you moan about your games etc your games get even more rubbish.
As for the free game I never win, but get 1tg almost every week for £500 or £1000 and cinco the five card trick for £5000 always come out in the wrong suit.
Its such a frustrating site, stuck on 2tg forever and that 1tg rarely comes, but same winners keep on winning.
I wouldnt recommend it to anyone. I dont know how they get away with it, simply because you all let them.

I don’t really know what to make of tombola? I won several times when I first joined at the beginning of this year then the winning dried up. As I was spending a bit too much I decided to take a break for 6 months. Then I reopened my account and for the first week I had several wins ( just like when I first joined) and also lots of 1tgs. Week 2, I spent 90.00 and nothing and mostly 4 tgs.
I know its a game of chance, but I can’t help feeling there’s a pattern forming. Having said that I do like playing at tombola and games are reasonably priced as long as you know your limits. I shall remain at tombola with a set limit and see how it goes.

It’s uncanny how random numbers can have such a repetitive pattern. Get nowhere all your deposit, and then get 1tgs when you get down to last 1.00. Then when you deposit your back to this repetitive pattern.
This can last for weeks, it’s verging on mental torture. It’s not the losing – I can live with that, it shows the way these games are obviously controlled. And the repetitive pattern just shows luck plays no part.
I have been with this site for years now and never seen this pattern so bad.
I have played 70.00 on 10p games and won nothing – that’s 700 games – in a house where there are on average 100 players in the room. Bandit red lion had the same winner 6 out of ten games. This happens reg in the bandit games. tombola seem to pick 4 to 5 players to win and the rest don’t stand a chance.

You want to know of an honest site? Try Tombola, it isnt always easy to win, but it is the only site I know that will only allow every player no more than 24 tickets on their 10p bingo and their 50pence bingo, hence 6 tickets costing 10 pence, and 6 tickets in their 90s room at 50 pence. It isn’t easy to win, but you do have as much chance if you max?
For the very first time, only a few days ago, I won £600 full house, and a few games later won another £124.00 – I was over the moon.
Try and avoid sites that let you play 96 tickets or more, not only is it continuous maxing and costing you a lot, players should not have to max and pay that amount of money to try and win.
Tombola is very honest, and it is the very first time I have won such a large amount, so it goes to show with just 24 tickets which I only buy on a link game I won! And the £124 I bought just 6 tickets for 10 pence! I won! This is the only site I am aware of that only allow every member to buy up to 24 tickets! And I think that is brilliant.

You may have read my rants on here about the horrible chat windows on Tombola and how we have to stomach nasty CM’s and brainless chatter with no option to switch off the chat.
There is a way I have found (apart from covering the chat window with another game or edgeing the chat off the edge of the screen) It’s clunky and and dirty but simple and effective.
Log into a game as usual,
now disconnect your Internet (i switch my modem off)
leave until the chat window says “connection lost” or similar
then switch Internet back on.
Do not click the “reconnect” button in the chat window.
You are now free of the mutterings and smug anti-men hate talk you always get on these sites.
All thiis could be avoided by Tombo by adding option to tick no chat and they could still display system messages like JP winners etc. but thats too 21st century for their “programmers” I think 🙂

Is it fixed? Depends what you mean by fixed. The word random can mean many things.
Big business, as we all know, have no issue what so ever with ‘maximising profits’.
‘Fixing’ the random number generator, may well get them into deep water, if the so called gambling commission ever bothered to check them, however having a computer program that creates new automated accounts, and allows them to play 24/7 would be difficult to trace.
Imagine for example 100 ‘bots’ playing every day, every game, they don’t have to pay, obviously, but when they win, the money is then played, and once lost, goes into the bingo sites pocket, apparently legitimately. How would anyone know unless they checked all the accounts and who would do that. Just a thought.

Theres not many bonuses, but that’s what sets them aside from a lot of the free bonus sites as there is no gimmics. You put what you put in and what is payed out is yours and a low minimum withdrawel of 10 pounds. 🙂

I agree with previous post. Was lucky at first but when you’ve been there a few months you just don’t win. I played for fun, could afford it, enjoyed chat but be the least bit negative in chat and, let’s face it, bingo is frustrating when you don’t win for a few weeks and you are pounced on by cm’s.
I have to take issue, in particular, with one of the newer Cms on board. No customer skills or experience and, to be frank, may be new and lack training but totally ruined a chat and was taken to task by long term players but couldn’t accept or deal with it. Shame but other cm’s seem fine.
Games are fine and plenty of choice. Just too many players and promotions. We all accept it’s gambling and fun but don’t stay longer than a month!

Tombola – I have been playing on this site for 8yrs which I should have learned my lesson before now. Deposited on a daily basis, for very little in return. New players winning the JPs and Link games, that is if they are for real. As for the jp winners most of you never hear of them again. I thought this could be a trusted site but apparantly not.
I have been playing when a newbie joins and says they are going to win JP and yes you have guessed correctly that’s what they have done, on their first day.
Over the yrs I have lost thousands which I am not proud to admit, hoping for a few good wins which never came.
Beware when joining this site, you may be a winner for a few days, but I can guarantee you will be a loser at the end of the day. Don’t be a mug like me and lose all your hard earned cash….

Hi babycakejess. tombola is very popular – mainly because it keeps things simple. There is not a no deposit bonus for newbies, just a straightforward 200% first deposit bonus from £10. Once the bonus has been played through there are no further wagering requirements and bonus can be forfeit if you want to withdraw earlier. Minimum withdrawal is just £10.

I joined tombola in January this year and I won over £400 in the first week. I won 2 links in bingo lite within 48 hours, but within 2 weeks my winning streak had dried up. Hoping to retain my winning streak I was depositing more and more and even though I was having small wins it was nothing compared to what I was depositing so I put a limit on my account.
Since capping my spend my wins have been virtually non existant. I found certain people in chat would defend tombola if players dared say it was a fix or same winners. Strange that depositing players would be so upset by theses comments.
The moral of this story is…….. Don’t be fooled by tombola and if u gonna spend…….spend little or better still spend nothing!

Some nights there’s up to 2000 players and same people can win 3 or 4 times a night. Is that really possible if random?
Also see people win loads who are really friendly with cm’s. Groupies the members call them. People get jumped on if they mention any kind of fixing lol. I really believe if your face fits you’ll do well on tombola. Me? Well I’m looking for another site as had enough.

I reviewed Tombola earlier on here but after some more thought and observations I would like to add the following;

Nearly all gambling sites reward their loyal customers with bonuses or points of some kind, Tombola make it very clear they hold no truck with players loyalty, even those that spend £500 a week for 5 years, I really do not understand this insult.

Rooms close at set times, even if the site is bulging with players, most annoying, is it really that difficult for Tombola to manually close rooms using common sense instead?

I calculated the rake Tombola takes on one game approx 27% of the pot, I don’t know what other sites take, but this seems well greedy to me.

Someone else commented that setting your deposit limit seems to affect how much you win, I doubted it, until I took my limit off and set it to max (£500) I was on a 2 week losing streak before that, within a few hours I had won 150 quid.

One last gripe; why in God’s name can we not have pre-buying of tickets? You have to be there at the start of every game, come on Tombola, this is 2014 not 1994. And for the love of God Tombo let us turn the horrible chat windows off; not all of us need the computer for a social life, I go tombo to gamble, not make friends or chat about Eastendersdogsbabiesfoodweather, I can do that with people I actually like. lol

Have to say I do like Tombola, and have been there since the site started, but, like others I have to say it seems to be almost impossible to win these days.
I know they say its down to luck, but surely no one can be that lucky to win day after day like you see some players doing. I go weeks without winning a penny and spend plenty. Check my bank statements for proof lol.
Some of the cms are great, really helpful and friendly, but others can be harsh, and yes in some rooms you can feel like an outsider if you do not fit into ‘the click’.
I for one am glad they do not have slots (think I would be homeless by now otherwise lol), plus I can go elsewhere for some great slots.
Just wish Tombola seemed to be a bit fairer with the winners, I do sometimes feel disheartened, especially when I make 4 or 5 deposits in one day and aren’t lucky enough to get a penny back.
At the end of the day its not the sites fault, we are the ones who choose to go and throw our money away.
Maybe the men in white coats will come and take us away and save us!

Like others, I joined Tombola on a recommendation. Bad idea. They need to balance their software since it heavily favours newbies with wins, and since Tombola aggressively markets itself there are lots and lots of newbies which means that wins for regular players are extremely few and far between. It cost me roughly £100 in deposits for every £5-£10 win and I know that other regular players have deposited far more without ever seeing a win. CMs are OK but they leave rooms unattended for very long periods which means player comments can easily get out of hand and become offensive.
Having played many, many different online bingo sites over the last nine years I can say without doubt that I’ve never found one that was as hard to win anything from as Tombola currently is. In fact, I was so hacked off with it that I’ve self-excluded for life.

In one week alone i deposited 500 pound with not one single win and that was only doing 10p bets in roulette. The cms can be dam right rude; they have there own little click and if you arnt in there group u just get ignored. All u do is deposit on this site. They put it down to luck i dont think so. When u question the cms they ban u from the room. The site is an absolute joke and its about time summit got done about it.

Tombola is a utter joke, the same bullies get away with a slap on the wrist while the innocent party’s get banned this DOES happen on this site, dont get me wrong there are some wonderful people on this site but its the lack of consistancy from the managment and some of the CMs.
Its amazing that when you put a limit on your account you suddenly stop winning. Yes it seems to be the same big winners all the time, its weird how they have stopped suddenly showing all winning history and now only show the last 10. When you phone to complain about something being said that should not be mentioned in chat they say the will monitor the room and depending who it is saying the crude remarks they suddenly can’t find it. Stay away from Tombola I have and went to a much better site with no bee’s in your ears

I have played on Tombola for about 3 years. I like the site although the graphics maybe basic. I like this as its easy to navigate round and straight forward to use a lot of other sites have things flashing everywhere and pictures jumping out here there and everywhere which can make it confusing, so I like this about Tombola as it doesn’t have all that.
I like the different games you play that you can’t find anywhere else. One of my favs being bingo60. I used to win quite often, but as the site has become bigger its harder and harder to win. I have curbed my depo’s now and split between this and a diff site.
Withdrawals are super fast if you use paypal it’s there in hours not days, there is no messing about asking you provide the blood of a virgin or an essay in latin like some sites do… its one of the great things about Tombola as is the responsible gambling that they promote… this is second to none.
It is true that lately the same names are appearing more and more often which is very disheartening especially when you see certain members win between £500-£1000 in bingo90 and then begging for a £4 line in bingo lite half hour later and when they don’t win the £4 they are goin mad and calling it a fix lol.
Even more annoying that these are the people who’s names ya see winning most days!!
I find the CMs friendly and helpful and sometimes the other players will help too, although be careful of the CM groupies. Other than all this I enjoy the site and still play as I prefer the games, they are games you cant find elsewhere.
2 yrs ago I would have given Tombola a 9/10 but now am afraid its 6/10 for me I still play but i spend more time elsewhere now.

i play on other sites and deposited 20 pound recently on my usual site and won 130 off it on line 2 line and fh wins through a few hours and also i get a weekly bonus. last night i won 80 pound off my free weekly bonus although i spent it again, lol. i play to have fun and i do not have fun on tombola. i myself witnessed the same people winning. disheartening since i was maxing every game. i played through for 15 hours straight, maxed all games and still won 0.
i wont be returning now. the cms i found were a bit ignorant and concentrated on favourites instead of answering questions off new joiners. Hard to win on tombola is what i would tell anyone.

Well done to all the people that win on there. Shame i couldnt as i would have been a very loyal customer and deposited a heck of a lot, but i wont be missed by them. tombola dont care about keeping customers, no loyalty scheme, no bonus points. deposit play, lose and repeat!!!
time to head back to my awesome loyal bingo site who give free money through the day while you play. the cms are great, really friendly and most players are friendly enough although moan a lot, lol. join MFORTUNE guys free £5 to start, 100% deposit bonus, easy to deposit and withdraw, but they do allow reversals which i hate, but seriously give them a try. i love that they dont share the winnings out what you see is what you get no matter how many people win.

Where to begin with this site?
I joined tombola when it first started, and i loved it!!! of course i did – i was winning left right and centre for about 12 months. I would play every night, and i would win a full house in the red room literally every night – not to mention endless line and 2 line wins. Then the wins slowed down a little, i thought this was due to having an unlucky streak – and soon i was going to the deposit limit of £500 every single week with only an odd line win here and there. I have always maxed, and still end up waiting on 1 number for literally every line 2 line, full house.

I stopped playing for 6 months, as i realised that the hobby was becoming an addiction and i didn’t want to go down that route. When i returned to the site i won the first game i played. For weeks after that i was winning and again another successful few months.

Soon the £500 a week limit was getting reached on a weekly basis, and the repeat winners, was just not worth the cash. i play maybe once every few months and STILL see those same names.

The CM’s are rude, patronising and the way they allow the “groupies” to join in is what i can only describe as bullying. When you are spending £500 a week you are entitled to vent your frustration when for the 100th time that day you’ve missed yet another house, yet another JP…

The repeat winners situation on this site is the worst i have seen, and i have no idea how they are able to get away with it. I once played 56 games of cinco in a row ( that’s £112) and with only THIRTY NINE players or less for most of that few hours i played i waited on 1 for about 80% of the games, missed the 20k JP 4 times and saw 3 winners win approximately 5+ times each within that time frame – one of which won 3 games in a row.

tombola knows most of its loyal customers feel this way, and they don’t care – the reason they don’t care is because for every one of us that leaves – they get 100 more to replace us with their ads and voucher codes. If you ask me the site has become too big for its boots and the quality of service has massively slipped.

My view is – what goes up must come back down, and i certainly won’t be there to bring it back up.

Make of this site as you will, but i write this review as a genuine bingo lover, and one who has no problem with losing when its fair.

My story is very similar to yours, everything you say I can vouch for.
Have you noticed they have changed the winners history? Now u can only go back 10 games, nice way to hide repeat winners I think?

I’ve played at Tombola for about 4 years now, and I like it, but I would like to list what I think are its good and bad points.

* The games are OK, the graphics are from 1980 lol
* The games have silly, lazy bugsglitches that never get fixed which is very unprofessional IMHO
*If you’re not a “special” player you will not win much, if you are you will win way above what is “randomly” feasible.
* I despise the pathetic CM’s on Tombola, they are either simpletons or bullies.
* Most of the players are pensioners and are really dumb and still live in a 1940’s morality , I left because I couldn’t bare the chat any longer about dogsbabiesreality shows, no option to turn off inane chat window,why?

Oh, I nearly forgot to mention some good points.
*Excellent withdrawal, very fast (less than 36 hours in most cases) and no fuss, don’t expect to win afterwards though lol
*Easily the best self exclusiondeposit Limit features of any gambling site I’ve ever seen, outstanding.
*Huge jackpots, a friend of mine won 36K on bingo 90! though don’t expect anything big until u have lost many thousand and played for years.
* You can eek out a small deposit for days if you are patient enough, 2p5p10p but expect to lapse into a coma lol. To be fair I have had many wins for pennies, last week £146 for 5p ticket, 2 x £300+ for 10p ticket on bingo 90, but then again I do silly money sometimes. I have won 3 £500 jackpots and 2 £100 jps, but just cant seem to get to the big stuff yet, though I should do sooner or later, or die trying.

A word of warning about Tombola Roulette,
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
This is a complete rip off, Tombola taking advantage of very stupid gamblers. Some idiot in the chat once said “its same as any roulette i the casino” yes people are that stupid n Tombo folks 😉

You can only stake one of 5p10p25p50p£1£2
no mixing of stakes.
You can only have a maximum of 5 chips
you can only have 1 chip on any 1 number (lol)
You cannot bet on redblack
No corners or rows or half bets
Basically tombo have taken away every tiny edge a player has in normal roulette.
But the odds paid out are the same as single zero roulette.
Go figure.
Daylight robbery, and tombo should be ashamed.

1 last gripe, hey tombo , don’t you understand bingo is basically a very boring game and gamblers need to win often, even little wins, you should offer some slots for us adults so we can decide to play them if we want.

Well I could go on and on and maybe I will later.

Having said all that I enjoy playing tombo lol
Hope you found this review helpful and truthful?

This bingo site’s games are easily the best by far to play on. If another site starts up with their same kinda games they will be an instant success. Other bingo sites games look all the same and something out of the 1980’s graphics wise tacky and boring, but to me it’s all about winning. As usual I won when i joined then stayed for a year and didn’t win hardly ever and spent a fortune.
Same winners in all the big rooms like 90’s, Bingo Roulette. Came off this site in January 2014 after 18 months. It’s gone down hill with too many players for each room, no chance of winning any more. They are spending all their money on TV adverts.

I joined tombola 3 weeks ago and have had many wins totalling nearly £500. Obviously I had to keep topping up to win, but not bad considering you hear of some people on the site not winning for months. All winnings are paid to you immediately and transfers to your bank take up to 3 days.
There is a lock limit which enables you to set a limit on how much you spend which is good for those tempted to top up too much. The chat rooms are quite entertaining with some conversations referring to assault and court cases not the place to air personal issues) and the cms are helpful.
Before joining tombola I joined the cassava sites Costa, Foxy, Wink etc., but after reading some others bad experience of not being paid their winnings I decided to leave and I’m glad that I did. Just hope my good luck continues at tombola. What more is there to say……. Join and be lucky!!!!!!

Tombola is the best bingo site in the Uk.The cms do a brilliant job with some very unruly customers. If you win whether it be £20 or £20,000 no fuss is made you can take your money out without waiting or worrying if you will get it like other sites. Last thing you all moan there is too many of the same winners, I say when your lucks in its in, if it was you on a winning streak you wouldn’t be MOANING

Same winners all the time. Same jackpot winners over and over again. The site use to be good, but gone right down hill fast. If you say anything bad on the chat some players jump on you or the CM will have ago and other players will jump on too. There are some nice people to chat to and some of the CMs are ok. It gets very boring seeing same people winning all the time. Save your money and stay away. All bingo sites are the same.

I have played on tombola since the site started, but for the last year it has become one of those boring “same old” sites,meaning the same few “special” names seem to win day in day out, week in week out. As for the links and jackpots how an earth the same few names can win constantly is beyond me. I have become very disheartened with this site. I thought it was one of the few sites that had genuine, random winners but not so sure anymore.

This site is not very impressive. There are quite a few bingo rooms, many of which I tried and did not even come close to winning despite maxing on every game. Perhaps this is a reflection of the high number of players in each room. I felt that the site could have benefited from a variety of side games/slots/scratchcards which it lacked.
To be fair, they do offer a generous first deposit bonus and have loads of bingo rooms to choose from. Plus the prizes are quite high if you can get near them. I tried this site because of its claims to popularity but will probably not be returning to play there again as I felt it didn’t live up to its reputation.

Totally agree, the games are massively over subscribed with less of a chance of winning compared to other bingo sites. I thought i would miss Tombola when I left them, but no way! – much, much, better bingo sites around…. and yet they keep pleading with me to return to them with their boring emails – but no! I think the way Tombola treat their paying customers, it is no real surprise players are disgruntled and leave them.

I love tombola. I joined 4 nights ago, deposited £10 and had about 6 wins which put me up to £487 and cashed out. The Live help was very helpful and pleasant and had no problems making a withdrawal either! Deffo be sticking to this one and what I like about the site you cant reverse your winnings and they have no slots, just different bingo games which i love! Even maxing out never costs more then £2, so your money goes alot further than most bingo sites and the full houses (if won one) are always around 80-100 mark! Moneys fab and I had a laugh too.

Did love tombola, but recently they have let some of their customers down. They had a technical fault (or so they say) on the free game where several people won up to £1000. Some of these customers have photo shots of their winning page and shown it on Tombolas facebook page for us all to see, yet tombola have decided not to pay them their winnings – even the people who have got the proof!! I find this disgusting. I believe they gave £50 goodwill gestures to all that played the game at the time of the ‘technical fault’.
This is great for those that won smaller amounts, but there are several people saying they won £500 and £1000 that they have proof and £50 is just a slap in the face. I have been with Tombola from day one when they pulled away from Sun, but this is bad business and morally I cannot recommend them any longer!!!!

So since that review I wrote I’ve spent a lot of time on tombola lately and i have found its changed so much. The rooms are absolutely packed and it’s near impossible to win, so when i did i withdrew and astonishingly it took 5 days to go in my account. Tombola are saying it’s my bank, but i’ve always used the same bank. I could easily go on tombola and lose £20 in less than an hour. Needs to add more rooms in my opinion.

Ok so me being honest.. as I always am with my fellow bingoers..I have serious mixed reviews on this one. Range of game choices = excellent. Cheap tickets = excellent. Quizzes with different winners winning them = excellent. Quick withdrawal system = excellent. Playmate bonuses = excellent.

Now on to the not so good. Cm’s who have their clear favs and tend to over look them of us who are less talkative when we do try. Roomies who have their clicks and all join in when you retaliate to one who has a snipe at you because you might say you need a win or anything in a negative value. And the most important one, 700+ games in one room winnings of a grand 0p. Not quite sure that’s luck. This site I’m afraid you are going to have to join and make up your own mind – I’m on the fence.

I left Tombola after a short period, I tore into a few CMs while on it though who needed challenging about their own appalling behaviour on it, and basically they couldn’t handle any criticisms I raised with them at all. The ban from chat – is all they have left once you get the better of them swopping comments on their chat rooms, a small price to pay for getting your valid points across! Much better value Bingo companies out there than Tombola.

I have been playing tom for a while now and I do enjoy it 80% of the time due to the fact I have made some every good friends.
I joined because I had a free fiver and won to keep me going (not enough to withdraw).
30% of the CMS are okay but the rest are rude and clicky – the saying if your face fits springs to mind.
They treat you like you’re at school and pick on certain people. Their nickname is BB because they watch your every move. Others are great – witty funny and jokey – but very few. The others are ignorant, rude, boring and stick to certain people i.e. players and other CMS and will often ignore you. It’s very frustrating not to be able to say what you think so I decided to write this post.
Certain rooms are addictive like 7s or hamster races. They have great choices of rooms, but it tends to be in some rooms the same winners always winning like cinco, pirates, bingo lites.

I have suggested friends, but they haven’t got far with tombola as they lose too much money like me. Plus they don’t do any bonuses so topping up all the time is every expensive and not worth it.
I would have left ages ago if it wasn’t for my friends there.

I signed up to tombola around 3 years ago and enjoyed it at first, but as time has gone on I find there are too many players to get close to winning. tombola seem to have a rule of maximum input and minimum output. I know it is gambling, but you at least expect to get something back from what you have put in.
I have never won a jp and very rarely win in any of the games as i have tried them all. It’s very disheartening to see all the jp wins flying out when you are struggling just to get a little return on your money (not that i begrudge anyone a win). tombola seem to concentrate on promotions and big jp wins which only a few out of many benefit from.
Surely it makes more sense to keep everyone happy with more smaller wins than just 1 big winner. I think it opens up the whole can of worms when the same people win on a regular basis and big jp winners as they then get targeted for abuse in chat and it creates tension between players.
I do find some of the rooms ignorant as i always like to say wd and gl to others, but in some rooms you are completely ignored. Some of the CM’s are lovely, but others have let the ability to ban from chat go to their head. I also find their rules very strange like not being able to type in capitals as its classed as shouting and the fact that you aren’t allowed to say anything negative as it makes them look bad, but people are going to comment, its called freedom of speech.
I mainly play in one room now and the people in there are lovely, everyone is made to feel welcome, if you speak we always answer and always try and lighten the mood when everyone is getting annoyed. I have made many good friends on there which is one thing that i am grateful to tombola for, but i think this site needs to make a lot of changes as far as keeping its customers.
Unfortunatly i don’t think this will happen as they have enough members to keep the money rolling in. It won’t be until they lose a majority of their customers that they will consider putting it right. I know a lot that are not returning to this site as they feel it’s just a money pit.

Some good, valid, points you make… i’m afraid Tombola CMs are a weird bunch though ( not all of them – but they know who they are – once they start kicking up a thunder storm with their pompous attitude to ‘rules’ while at the same time conveniently breaking/ignoring their own in-house rules )….pretty sure with the amount of people out of work in Sunderland ( Tombola’s UK base for CMs ) they could sweep out the long standing ‘troublesome’ CMs who are well, well, past their sell-by date, and employ some younger CMs who understand what it is to treat players with respect and value the job at Tombola, rather than boast about how long they have been working there, and then, behaving appallingly in chat rooms with impunity. I know of a lot of players who have stopped playing on Tombola because of finding it too difficult to win on it, but, I suspect numbers are still high because of the glossy TV adverts are bringing in fresh players as others leave.

A fantastic mixture of games to play ranging in prices so affordable for all, some games are only 1p a ticket. There are big jackpots on all games (certain no of balls called). Fabulous site and really enjoyable!!

Puzzling comment, ‘never actually deposited – but received a free fiver’ ….just don’t understand this comment, to be a player on Tombola you would have to deposit in the first place to be eligible for any bonuses, and why would you need to start depositing your own funds into their account if you just won £623 ? doesn’t make any sense at all this comment.

Good site, easy to use, very friendly hosts although most chatrooms have their own group that gather and chat. tombola has a high amount of choices of where to spend your money, however no bonuses are offered apart from the rare £5 bonus. The site has quite a few players and therefore reduces the number of people winning regularly. Having said that I have won over £400 in the last 4 months and won £1500 in their link specials last year.

I always enjoyed playing at Tombola, it was very friendly with very pleasant chat hosts. When playing I would usually use the Bingo Lite rooms and had some nice wins, but with the popularity of Bingo Lite it ended up being extremely busy with more new rooms appearing all the time. Still a thumbs up from me as I can’t fault the site or the way it’s run it just got too busy for me personally.

Agree it’s well run site… but like the monster it has now become, too many players means you simply will find it very hard to win on Tombola, even you have found the 10pence games extremley busy. Much better Bingo companies out there than Tombola where you will have better chances of a win. Pumping your hard earned cash into Tombolas account just to participate in a well run site, and have a chat, won’t help your bank balance!

tombola is a great bingo site. I find it very easy to navigate round, the layout is user friendly and there’s always jackpots being won, although never by me lol. tombola never sit back on what the have rather always looking how they can improve and add new games. The payouts when I have won are in my bank account within two/three days, as i write this 02/04/2013 all members will soon get £5 free and you can withdraw any winnings from this without wagering as long as you have deposited before. Good luck on whatever site you play.

Incidently, when I discovered ‘Which Bingo’ I happened to mention it on Tombola on one of their awful chat rooms ( one of the ones you cannot disable! ) saying players should look it up… The CM kicked up a heck of a storm over it accusing me of advertising rival Bingo companies! when I tried explaining that ‘Which Bingo’ is NOT a Bingo company, I was hit with a 48hr chat-ban for rule breaking and received an email from Tombola warning further breaking of their rules, would result in a permanent ban from chat – but I could still spend my money on their games. I get the feeling Tombola are seriously worried about competition now, and as soon as they see anything with the word ‘Bingo’ in it on their ‘chat’, will automatically hit the panic button and think you are advertising a rival company.

I sort of half get what you mean. For those who are already members on Tombola, they will have already known about the five quid ( emails etc ), but for those who join up now, too late, they won’t qualify for it. Tombola is a huge company, it’s for that reason you will have *less* of a chance of winning on it, simply because the large numbers playing each games reduces your chances of winning. There are far better bingo sites around than Tombola – I found this out by looking at this website and comparing what was being said by other players and then joining other bingo sites myself. Tombola don’t give you bonus points that build up into free games like Paddy Power and others do for example, or give you consolation tickets for waiting for 1 number, or reward you each week for loyalty. I only knew about Tombola due to the glossy TV adverts… but there are a lot of better, smaller, companies out there now with better chances of winning than Tombola. I’d rather win smallish prizes on other better run Bingo sites, than compete with the mass hordes of players over on Tombola, and less chance of winning!….you have to join up the dots to get the full picture these days.

josh you have missed the point of my review. Ii wanted to let other WhichBingo members know what was happening at tombola. Five pounds wow wee, you say, I say five pounds free is great and who knows maybe you will win big from it. tombola has a huge following and don’t need to give anything free, so I’m grateful to them. I always look at things in the best way I can ie; my pint isn’t half empty, but half full. It’s the same difference I know, but my ill health has given me this outlook, so enjoy the free money and gl.

If you believe some of the comments on the ‘chat’ over on tombola some people are losing hundreds of pounds each day.Mindblowing in times of austerity that people on tombola are losing their shirts and then laughing out loud (lol) over it which kind of gives you the impression that some of the ‘players’ are not your average ‘loser’ if you get my drift.

Tombola is a great site. Great friendly CMs players are very nice, chat rooms very friendly, good fun chat games and wide variety of games to choose from starting at 2p-£2. The site has no slots so you don’t lose a mint by playing here.

Sorry if you been offended ‘keith’ …all I’ve done is post comments which reflect my experience visiting various bingo sites… you claim, ‘Tombola is an amazing site’ that is your opinion, I disagree. Perhaps if you took the time to challenge my criticisms of Tombola instead of just generalising we could see each others views. What’s so ‘amazing’ about Tombola? You got less chance of winning on Tombola than other bingo sites – simply because the games are over subscribed these days, more players playing each of their bingo games simply means you have less of a chance of winning! Tombola don’t show you winning bingo tickets like other bingo companies do? Tombola don’t reward players for loyalty bonuses, don’t give you free tickets for 1tg, don’t give you free bingo games when you have a certain number of loyalty points, so all in all Tombola is not amazing in my view – it’s just the biggest online bingo company based outside the UK, that does not make it the best! Much better companies and better deals for players out there if you just look and compare what they are offering – Tombola are well down the ladder on offering good deals for players, and that’s why players should consider alternative bingo sites instead of getting sucked-in to signing-up after seeing the glossy tv adverts. Thanks for your comment though Keith.

Some people like ‘slots’ and ‘scratchcards’ as a side order as well as bingo, horses for courses keith as they say. But ‘winning’ is the name of the game for most punters these days – I can chat on internet forums all day with people i’ve never met, and as nice and chatty as they are, it’s not why i’ve logged on to a gambling site for, and even with your ‘lucky’ username – you still can’t include yourself as a regular winner on Tombola! pretty much sums up Tombola – massive player numbers on every game, equals less chance of winning…. join up the dots to get the full picture on Tombola!

Why don’t Tombola show you on screen winning Bingo tickets like other Bingo operaters do now? Surely it can’t be that difficult to do?. Being transparent in this day and age is crucial and if the ‘biggest’ bingo operator (not based in the UK) can’t be bothered, then accusations of fixing will always be there. As for chat….here’s another idea, instead of saying players don’t have to participate in chat and no one is forcing them to ‘chat’…. why not operate a ‘no chat’ button on every game? it is available on some games, so why not all the games? Most of the ‘chat’ is so infantile on Tombola it must appeal to those who have no real life social skills.

I started playing on Tombola when it was a free site many years ago, I never won anything back then and stopped playing when they re launched into what it is today, I came back to it as a few friends had told me that it was lots of fun with good games and that the prizes were wonderful.

I decided to bite the bullet and have another go back in 2011 and in the first week had won a jackpot of £125 on a fantastic game called CINCO one of the many fun games on the site that have great jackpots. I have withdrawn money from tombola and have not found any problems with receiving my winnings from them which is usually in your account within 3-5 working days.

The Chat Hosts are very friendly and are always willing to help need it, they also hold chat games where you can win a free £1. Summing up I would say that tombola is one of the best sites out there offering a range of fun addictive games with great cash prizes, if your new to online bingo sites you would do well to start here and experience one of the best.

It was the ‘quiz’ games on Tombola that first caught my eye to something being a bit odd over there. ‘New’ names who were not even appearing on the list of players would suddenly turn up to play the quiz, and vanish as soon as the quiz ended. Tombola is a popular Bingo site, but I think it has peaked it’s popularity now. If it has 5,000 players logged on at any given time on the main board, you can figure it out that your chances of winning are slim, even their new game of ‘lucky 7s’ has been tweaked now by closing 3 single games into now 1 game – pushing the playing figures into well over the hundreds for each game making it more difficult to win… the 10p game for example with over 100/1 chance of winning paying… £2.37p a win. Shop around, loads of good Bingo sites around, and seemingly better odds of winning.

Tombola does have excellent games, you cannot fault them on that for sure, but to claim ‘the CMs are all lovely and helpful’ probably means you have not trawled through the whole site. A small number of idiot CMs over there seem to get a kick out of encouraging online bust ups. The number of players logging on to the games has risen – with that comes even less chance of winning! If you can put up with some of the rubbishy CMs and realise you have percentage wise less of a chance of being lucky and winning a game, you’ll realise being ‘loyal’ to Tombola just for the sake it will cost you a lot of money. There are literally a lot of good bingo sites out there, thanks to WhichBingo where you stand a much better chance of winning than on Tombola.

Some players are unable to defend themselves over on Tombola, those that can give it back are usually left alone as the CMs know they will be made to look childish in front of their little groupie supporters. I noticed Tombola are now on some kind of good public relations excercise, ‘Meet the CMs’ link, perhaps they’ve read the reviews on here and realise some of the CMs are damaging the reputation of the company.

I have had a few wins since joining this site, being very lucky one morning and banking my winnings. But after that could not win a thing. Couple of things I noticed recently has put me off of this site altogether. Two large JPots in 90’s room, I was in there when one jp went and not a sound from the winner. Chat is loaded with players, you would think a ‘wow’, ‘omg’, ty, would be entered into chat if a player won £8,000. Not a sound from the winner, other members thought it a little strange too. Tombola will say,”perhaps they are in another room!! Second time bingo 90 room £27000 jp and the winner is……8kids27grand. Now this might just be coincidence, as it sounds like grandkids, but I’m not convinced and not willing to part with any more money. It’s not realistic in my view.

Then you go into roulette Venetian room and some of the chat is awful to see with the little clique.. The clique I’ve witnessed are awful to other members and cause a very bad atmosphere in the room. I don’t play in there as much as I used to simply because of the way the clique treat certain players until they stay out of the room. Disgusting – tombola should act to stop this.

I’m afraid Tombola is slowly sliding down. Some of the stuff that gets through onto the chat rooms with the blessing of the CMs will send a lot of players on to other sites. Quite right too, there are plenty of other bingo sites up and running now. Tombola will surely ‘self-destruct’ simply because it thinks it cannot be knocked off it’s perch and has become complacent by allowing abuse to be the norm on there.
I think the CMs who have got used to joining in/encouraging abuse and vile comments on a daily basis have damaged the company without the management noticing or even caring so long as the member numbers stay high. But when players realise there are some excellent bingo sites around without the abuse, they will drop Tombola like a stone…… oh dear, they never saw the warning signs.

I also like that once you withdraw the money goes into your account in 3 working days and it doesn’t sit for three days so your tempted to play with it!

Like this site, but always high amount of players so find it hard to win. Very quick withdrawal method when able to get a win, no pending time and back in you account really quickly. Shame there are never any bonus codes.

Tombola games are ok-ish, but the chat rooms have become something of a unsupervised children’s playground in the last few months. Some games you can turn the chat off, others you have to put up with seeing rude comments or squabbles….thumbs down!

tombola seems to have same winners day in day out. Not a fair bingo site, deposit 10 pounds and the only thing you get from tombola is the bonus. I wouldn’t advise this to be honest, there’s better bingo sites out there where it isn’t impossible to find a win.

Two weeks ago I won a large amount ( I think it is for me!). This has been the biggest win yet, won about six times, various of amounts…like the platform, even down to the bingo lite version. Have nothing but praise for them… But as always be responsible, don’t play more than you can actually afford. 🙂

tombola has brilliant graphics and is user friendly, but as a gambling experience just terrible! The same winners and same jackpot winners. The cms are quick to jump down your throat the minute you mention a negative comment, and the people in the rooms are so clicky with each other its unreal. However, what they do forget at tombola is that some of us long standing payers have to be subjected to other players talking about death, and cancer and crap in general and we cant switch off the chat as there is no button to do it?!!! terrible site in this respect.

Don’t believe everything the CMs tell you on Tombola, i saw a CM who kept making the same spelling mistake in room chat – and then had a friendly chat with a wonderful ‘new’ player who had arrived, who also made the same spelling error in conversation, and, just so happened to ‘win’ the quiz, I’m pretty sure the CMs and live customer help are the same people. ‘Customer help’ was closed on Christmas day ( the only day of the year ) and it was noticeable there were hardly any CMs working as well that day? Join up the dots at Tombola to see the full picture.

The CMs moderate the rooms only on tombola, as I recall asking one what their day to day tasks were. Granted they may have a few rooms to manage, but their main focus is the chat rooms and ensuring all runs well.

I think you’ll find the chatroom moderators are multi tasking most of the time, answering phones, dealing with customer enquires, Etc, Etc, and NOT just being CMs, hardly any of them were working Christmas day, and that was the ONLY day of year Tombola shut it’s customer services department, the CMs are probably over-worked and under paid having to knuckle down to do a variety of different jobs.

I love tombola. The chat hosts are fun, entertaining and friendly, there is a huge variety of games as well as traditional bingo games. Rules and prices are clear, concise and in plain English, no need to have read a dictionary to understand them. Prices are affordable and as u can only purchase tickets in 2 rooms at a time, its hard to lose track of what you are spending. Promotions and jackpots are frequently offered and won. With a social networking option called my tombola its always easy to keep up to date with friends you have made online. I would recommend (and frequently have done) this site to everyone, join and then get all your friends to join too

You make some good valid points, but i seriously doubt that some of the ‘chat’ is needed, or, even wanted by the majority of the players, for example, i’ve been on a game with say another 15 players ( you can actually click on an icon and see how many players are playing that game ) just small comments by the players like ‘well done’ etc to each winner or just nothing at all, everyone is quite happy to be just playing the game, then along comes a CM who tries engaging players in chat, sometimes it’s very embarrassing for the CM as no one even bothers answering! that pretty much shows there is a lack of interest in chatting when players were quite happy just doing what they logged on for – playing the games! there’s loads of chat rooms on the internet without having it on every game on tombola, and to be honest a lot of the ‘chat’ is really infantile and not what adults really want to see!

Tombola has a huge same winners issue. I spent £2000 a month on this site playing the £500 a week limit every week for years. Never once did i win a jackpot and my account was always in a minus balance of no less than £1500 a month. On average you would win £500 of the 2 grand a month back with a struggle. After many years of watching the same winners and recently even serial repeat jackpot winners i challenged the site directly regarding their lucky lucky players. I closed my account after 7 year purely because of the issue and the attitude of certain cms and the poor excuses from the Management.

tombola don’t seem to care about long standing customers how much they spend or their years of loyalty to the site. I am entitled to an opinion and I’ve given it here – unlike tombola chat rooms where a 5 yr old in a classroom has more freedom of speech without cms jumping on you for telling the truth about there serial winners.

Tombola has many many players and admittedly offers high prize money due to the massive volume..This cannot and will not last as people are slowly beginning to realise that there’s more chance of Tina Turner dancing up there hallway singing Simply The Best than ever winning.

My account is now closed as Tombola simply could not come up with a sensible answer about the repeat problem on the site.

Utterly disgusted. Same winners most days and some in particular win every single day. Any time I have won, which believe me is not often in all the time I have been playing, I tend to share the smallest prize line with many other players that I end up with a couple of quid only – as I say, my consolation prize to give me hope of a proper win.

I know bingo is a gamble but luck is luck but no one could be as lucky as some of the players who manage to bank most days! Also fed up of the cliques in some of the rooms, it is OK for them to moan if they don’t win for an hour but anyone else who mentions anything negative is pretty much told where to go. I also agree with other comments, the CM’s treat you like children and from the chat, I would assume that most of them are younger than the players themselves!

Not sure about the ‘same’ people winning big prizes all the time, seems a bit of a puzzle if that’s the case, but have noticed some very weird and wonderful names that seem to appear for a friendly ‘chat’ with the CM, win a house prize then vanish never to appear again.It’s usually a name with three or four ‘Xs’ in front and behind the main username.

OLDPERSON , you are like myself one of thousands of players who feel and see exactly the same problem on Tombola Bingo . I agree with you 100% and if more players in Tombola knew about this review site im sure they like us would say exactly the same thing . I will give anything the benefit of the doubt even after critics comments but i played £500 a week for 7 year and as warned by the reviews simply couldnt win . Its a lose lose situation whereas there serial repeat winners win £2000.00 and more a week . Certainly something far wrong with a site that has 10000’s players and the same lucky lucky players can still win high prizes and games. 7yr member never cracked the lucky tickets club so left in disgust .

I have had more fun playing tiddlywinks than playing bingo at tombola. What a boring, boring site. Chat hosts sometimes treat players like kids in a classroom. What dreary, dull games as well, with far too many repeat winners. That’s very disheartening to players who spend a fortune just to see the same serial winners crew take it all even jackpots .

The site for me is not a good place to be and chat is full of players mostly venting their anger over the lucky lucky players who win every day. My membership was short lived after reading a player say they spent £500 max limit a week and won rarely. You will get a few wins to begin with to get you hooked – take them and run. The site for me was poorly run poorly laid out and boring watching the clique of same winners winning.

Success from mass advertising creates mass players.Whilst this is good for profit it’s bad for keeping customers long term.

I’ve read every review in here and here’s mine for tombola, which is hopefully an objective one.

I’m not a bingo fan in general, but have tried out various bingo sites online. Generally I find them extremely confusing and complicated for such a simple game. However, tombola is well laid out, easy to follow and the most uncomplicated site to date. I don’t “chat” on any sites, so i’m in no clique. However,since joining tombola as “curiosity64” my deposits monthly average approx £50-£100 and my withdrawals have so far (about 9 months) averaged approx £150-£200.

The thing about bingo, either at a “real club” or online, is not BIG WINS. For that we have roulette…Any gambler depositing large sums of money on a bingo game is a losing player before they’ve even started…and you can take that from a long term experienced gambler here. BINGO IS NOT QUICK EASY MONEY…And should be played with that in mind. No different to the old bingo halls with the blowing balls (totally random). Some players just luckier than others…Thats what random means. It’s the “same old names” scenario that makes one sure that it is random..If no player won twice etc etc…That would be more suspicious and evidence of “tampering”…Tombola in my opinion is as good as a site gets if it’s played with a realistic attitude!

I have to totally disagree with you, there seems to be a winning cartel who win on a looped basis. I’ve seen some of these random lucky lucky players win up to 18 times in 1 day. I would advise anyone joining to sit back and watch the games play all over the site and watch who wins every day and a lot of wins, just not twice. Some lucky lucky random players have won the jackpot more than 5 times in a year. To me its simply not 100% random without prejudice to you or tombola bingo.

Tombola is a fun place, with a lot of exciting promotions, etc. The bonuses are great and the events are fun. The main downside to tombola is the CM’s. They ban people left right and centre! It’s fun to win at tombola, but when you’re not winning, it can get boring. Been a member for a few months now and thinking of exploring myself away.

I wouldn’t recommend Tombola Bingo. I have decided to air my disgust at the behaviour of a couple of the long standing CMs at the site against a regular player whose only offence was to say he was on the phone to Customer Services. Many players complain about same winners and I couldn’t believe my eyes.

I object to the way these CM’S use the chat ban and have a power freak attitude and the way they treat long standing players who have been members for years and spend a lot of money. It is beyond disgraceful and bad for customer relations.

I’ve closed my account after only 18 months. I don’t want to be a member of a site where CMS treat customers like this. My money wont go to such a site. My advice is read player reviews before joining, they know best there playing and see everything .

Seen a fair amount of comments left by the CMs on this one that are not what you would expect to see on any forum towards paying customers, i get the feeling some of these CMs are overworked and underpaid, because i think the job involves a lot more than just ‘chatting’ on games, they probably use the ‘chat rooms’ to let off a bit of steam after a day of working on customers ‘live chat’, answering telephones, sending emails, and general dogs body duties in the office, maybe it’s their way of unwinding, but it does not look very professional to be honest.

I’ve played at Tombola bingo for a good few years now and must say I’m not a lucky player so the statement below may be a reflection of this. I’ve had a good few small wins, but always seem to pay back double to triple the value of the win before i win again. I can sit there and deposit £150 or more and then win and other weeks play £500 and win nothing at all. I’ve been through my transaction history and it’s always nearing the £2000 a month mark with withdrawals showing rarely over £500 mark for the month.

I struggle to find how people can conclude that the site only cares for its big spenders who play constant on a daily basis.I’m one of them players who spends nearer the £2000 mark per month and if the above figures are anything to go by it appears to be not the case at all. Some players are very lucky and can win a few times in 90’s bingo then shortly afterwards Cinco, then Roulette on a repeated basis. I personally have never been on a roll of wins as the players term it when a player has lot wins in a day, nor have i had the pleasure of winning a jackpot over my near 7 years there. I’ve also seen some players who win almost every day. I do believe its pure random luck and say enjoy it when you’re winning it to those players.

You cannot expect to win every time you go on an online gambling site. There has to be losers and some lose more than most. The secret is selecting the winning tickets and admittedly i just cannot grasp it after near 7yr either ha ha ha ha.

I intend to try my luck at this site for a few more months and if nothing changes i guess it will be time to give it up as I’m so unlucky. It’s unfair to bring a site into disrepute simply because you’re not winning even spending the max allowed weekly like i do most weeks. Tombola is up there with a good reputation amongst the top bingo sites online and you either like the site or hate it. It’s really that simple.

I’m on a self exclusion at the moment and miss every day I’m not playing at Tombola. I’ve tried many sites and keep returning to this one. I’m not so lucky in the bingo but cinco keeps me going. I have put a weekly limit on to suit my financial circumstances. Cinco rooms have a limit of 75 people, the bingo rooms more, so harder to win but I’ve had my moments of happiness.

My name is churchmouse on there, but there is another called church mouse who plays and s/he wins very regularly, but good luck to them.

I wouldnt allow anyone to call me a serial winner and get away with it. I pay my money and expect to win like everyone else, sometimes I do several times a week and then nothing for a couple of weeks. Swings and roundabouts.

I like it very much, easy on the eye (if not on the pocket) NO SLOTS which is good for me, good laugh from time to time, easy and fast payment system, free game each day and much more.

It’s the only one I ever come back to. If your playmate wins over £20 you get £2 which is great. Thumbs up from me.

They say it’s random, but I don’t think so cus u just get the same ones winning & let’s face it when you put £500+ through you at least expect a win!
For £500 you would like a moan, but all you get is “moaning this & moaning that!” – get a grip your gonna want to have a moan at that!

Tombola was my favourite site for about a year but I realised the same names winning more frequently.
Also big jackpots drag on and on and on and really squeeze every penny from everyone desperate for a win. Then suddenly gets won by someone you never heard off.
No cashback rewards in play either, but thumbs up for the hosts and I did win half a dozen times and the most was £456 for a full house. Really put a smile on my face. I will return to tombola soon.

I find it seriously tedious, no side games..games a couple of mins apart which doesn’t seem much, but it seems like forever when there is nothing else to do but watch the clock countdown. I was glad when I spent my tenner.Ttotally rubbish and boring. There is no free bingo just a rubbish happy families thing. I asked in chat if anyone had ever won on it and they all said no.

I have been a member of Tombola since day 1 it started. As with any site it’s gambling. You deposit your money and if luck is on your side you win. Some players are lucky and on the very odd occasion land a run of good fortune winning a few times and before you know where you are the same winner rubbish starts. People really need to stop this and just be happy for these winners.

I have played some heavy amounts on the site, up to £500 a week limit set by tombola and won some games and on other weeks won nothing. I’ve never had the good fortune of ever winning a jackpot, but never say never.

The site is run fairly and games are all fun. I honestly can’t see why people are so negative about Tombola as it is like any other site, a gambling site. It’s very successful with thousands of players and has great prize money for any player to win. I would recommend the site to anyone. Staff are very helpful and when you call customer care they answer any questions promptly and efficiently as do the chat hosts.

I find it to be a friendly site and CMs very good at their job and they are human and like a laugh as much as the players do. This site is definitely worth joining. Given my time spent there since day 1 I would recommend Tombola Bingo to anyone.

I’ve been playing at Tombola for years now. My daughter joined recently and the day after I received an email asking ME to confirm my identity as there were two players at the same IP address even though we are some 25 years apart.The email was rather abrupt as if I was trying to hide something yet I’ve played there for over 5 years and provided ID to withdraw my winnings. I haven’t bothered, as quite frankly they treat their long standing customers like trash. They’re only interested in newbies and people who spend a fortune on the site and as other have said it’s quite difficult to win there and the little cliques all moan when someone else wins.

Joined Fabulous bingo instead, which although the prizes are smaller everyone has been so nice and helpful.

You claim to know this site Tina and yet you make reference to the slots and the fact that a player had invested a lot of money and not got a feature?????? Well no such slots exist on Tombola. I suggest by your vitriol that you are in fact an employee of a very bitter rival. Get your facts right before making stupid comments.

I won with my first £5 free bonus at tombola and there was no wager requirement and was able 2 withdraw straight away. Most sites I’m with have a wager requirement, so ty tombola. Always good money and seems 2 b a lucky site 4 me, which doesn’t happen often. but maybe just beginners luck

I visit tombola periodically, it’s a bit different and that is always welcome, though I seldom win (but have won a big bingo pot). I like the fact you can play various games for small amounts of money. Overall good selection of games and a daily free game and bingo tickets are reasonably priced.

tombola is ok as bingo sites go – roomies seem friendly, but there are a lot of players and wins are very few and far between. Site is also regulated off shore in Gibralter,and I’m not a fan of sites that are regulated in another country. All in all I’m not a tombola fan and I would not recommend this site to any of my friends.

Tombola is a great site if you love playing bingo. Not a good site if you prefer slots though.
I have had a good amount of wins here and also won £100 with a free £5 bonus they sent me for Xmas.
The hosts are friendly and are not clicky with certain people.
I usually play in the Breeze room because the tickets are cheap and the players are friendly.
However, I was not impressed with the so called Christmas Party – I moved about from room to room and did not see any hosts and there were no party games, just lots more people playing so the winning money was better.
I was not happy in the Fizz room though, there was a group of players who all seemed to know each other and they did nothing but grumble about new players winning and about the number of strange players in “their” room.
If you want to play for big money, then I would suggest the Aqua room as the players here are warm and friendly and make you feel welcome. Marks out of 10 – 8

tombola BIngo is my favourite site at the moment.

Good selection of bingo games and jackpot games played half hourly. Most of the other players are friendly and we all have a good laugh which takes the pain away from losing – I always come away feeling chirpy even if I have lost. I have had a few wins here too and I have not noticed the repeat winning names syndrome.

Good entertainment, friendly hosts, good chat games and ease of use.

Withdrawing is simple too, and I like the way your winnings do not go into a “pending queue”.

Well done tombolo – I hope to have many a good evenings play next year too.

One downside is there are not any slot games to play.

tombola is the best bingo site I have ever played on. The amount of different games will stop anyone getting bored and there are jackpots being won all the time. The chat hosts are great and the players are very friendly and no slots to eat up all your money 10 out of 10 for me.

I joined Tombola last year and I have found it to be a good site. There are plenty of rooms and there are linked games every half hour. The penny bingo is good, I purchased the max tickets for 40p and won one of the half hourly jackpots and received my winnings within the week by cheque.

The other players have always been friendly and fun when I have played there, as have the hosts.

I have not experienced repeat winners at this site (as yet).

I love this site.

oh peter you sound like you read that off an auto que , very very tombola cm ish speel . Thats a lot of garbage . What you are sort of carefully saying is that these same winners may spend more . Are you saying the more you put in the more chance you have of winning? . Thats a fix if it works that way then . You then go on about independent games from the last . If thats the case how come it independently picks the same winning players randomly week after week . Some players names must be stuck in the winners system . Anything computerised can be fiddled its only a programme . In America sites such as Tombola and Casinos etc etc were completely banned by there Governments after it was found out that random number generators are not 100% random . I have closed my tombola account after years of playing as im sick funding the same winners weekly . I fear it wont be long until all these bingo sites are raided by the authorities to check the running of them as far too many people are complaining to gaming commisions etc about the random luck of a certain group of players on many sites not just the tombola . I also fear tombola is drowning in its own success with far too many players making the odds even less . I am returning to my local bingo halls were i can actually see who is winning . I simply doubt that the players are real that keep winning on these sites . Without Prejudise to any organisations .

Thank you for your review!
