About tombola

Tombola Bingo is one of the UK's biggest and most popular bingo sites, with over 40 chat rooms and over 100 chat moderators working for them 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 £2. Up to £500 can be deposited at the site in any 24 hour period.

It's worth noting that this is the only online 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.

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 Any winnings can be withdrawn without wagering.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.

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  • Bingo wagering requirement: Any winnings can be withdrawn = bonus funds can never be withdrawn.

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.

Mobile and tablet

Access tombola Bingo via any mobile device on the relevant mobile browser. The layout of tombola’s homepage is different to many other bingo sites on mobile. The homepage page focuses more on tombola’s announcements, such as big winners or new promotions that are happening. The style of the layout of these articles are similar to how Twitter’s newsfeed, short but informative pieces that get the message across.

The games do take a more of back seat on the homepage, there is a navigation bar at the top of the screen that shows what type of games are available. The menu button in the top left, only contains the ‘My Account’ section.

Overall, tombola works great on mobile, even tho the app design is very different to many bingo apps out there, the navigation is easy and simple to understand. The games work great and scale correctly to mobile screens.

iOS App Store - There is a tombola iOS app to download. It’s layout and experience is identical to its mobile browser version.

Google Play - There is presently no app available from the Google Play.

Android - Presently tombola does provide an alternative way of downloading the app to your android phone, simply go to ‘bingo app’ at the tombola website and they will give you a step by step instruction on how to make it work.

        Love this bingo site because everyone can only spend 2 pound for max tickets which is better value for your money.

        Played on site for a number of years, but i think the site is getting to big. The chance of winning is slim and if you manage to win you soon lose it again. same names seem to win over and over again. i do like the site but as i said the chance of winning is very low.

        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.

        This site is beyond a joke!!! Why do they have to spend a fortune on advertising for new players? The rooms are full to capacity and more. They have no thought for players who have been members for years, no loyalty programme whatsoever, and the free game is absolute rubbish.

        It is time tombola stopped being so greedy and concentrate on making members feel welcome.....

        Shocking site, Extremely rude customer services! One lady in particular speaks to you like something of the bottom of her shoe! 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 couldn't agree more sweetpea. Shocking behaviour! Someone from Tombola should be responding to this.

        i have to agree, boring boring boring, took 6 month break, went back, thought give it another go, but no change, total rubbish... only ever won once in 3 years and that was'nt enough to withdraw.
        i know 5 people family members not one will return, how they class this as a good site i will never now.
        i played 5 rooms tonight after 6 month break and lucky to see 4tg.
        yet i remember seeing one winner reg, even remember the name clear as day, but trying to get a 1tg is worse than pulling teeth.
        take your chances, depo once might win, depo more the your need more than luck

        This company allows certain people to troll on others because they say they need a win etc. not me, but i cant stand a bully and it gets worse cos when they ban u from chat they let the others carry on saying what they like. Also i notice a lot of same winners always winning.

        I have been a member for a number of years. The site is boring me. i played £320 one evening on pulse and not one win. stakes varied from 10p, 25p,50p, £1 £2 i played £2 stakes not one decent win. this site needs to be looked into, some players say they will stop people from winning and i am beginning to believe it.

        Tombola is without a doubt the best site i have played on,and i have tried them all. i have played tombola for years i have won and withdrawn many times, they are very quick with withdrawal. I cant complain about the site at all.
        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!

        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.

        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!

        I've been a member in tombola for a few years now and sick to the teeth with it now . The same winners all the the time all they do is take take take don't know why I still play on it but closing my account now . Don't like sites that are all take . I'm very disappointed that I have to do this but can't afford to loose any more money I know it's gambling and its chance you take but there's no such thing as fair play in tombola . Would not recommend this site to anyone .
