Bullet Points

  • Awarded ‘Bingo Operator of the Year’ for the last three years
  • No slots – bingo games only
  • The UK’s most popular bingo site


With more users than any other bingo site in Britain, Tombola is quite a hive of activity. As well as providing classic bingo options, the company also has its own in-house designers who have created exclusive bingo games such as Pulse, Cinco, Bingo 50 (also known as bubble wrap bingo) and Bingo Roulette. Tombola is the one of the few bingo sites that doesn’t also offer slot games, so its emphasis is purely on catering for bingo-lovers. Games start at 2p with BingoLite, and the site’s maximum ticket price is £2. Tombola’s favourite games can also be downloaded via the tombola app, for Apple or Android.

Promotions and Bonuses

  • Get £50 FREE – Deposit £25 play with £75
  • No wagering

The deal available for you at Tombola is pretty hot one, and the main reason it is so sizzling is that it comes with absolutely no wagering requirements whatsoever! All you need to do is deposit at least of £10 of your own cash and Tombola will double it and add that amount to your account as bonus money, up to a maximum of £50. That means if you make the max deposit of £25, you will earn yourself a nice little earner of £50 in bonus cash.

For once when it comes to a bingo bonus, there are no complicated terms and conditions that you need to deal with. All that you need to understand is that you can use your bonus money (which is non-withdrawable) on any games at the site, except for Hamster Race or tombola Roulette.

Once you have spent your bonus cash you are free to withdraw any winnings you might have made. There are no wagering requirements that you need to contend with, whatsoever!

£50 FREE – deposit £25, play with £75. Deposit from £10. First deposit only. Any winnings can be withdrawn. Bonus money cannot be withdrawn. T&Cs apply.

VIPs and Regular Bonuses

Tombola styles itself as the biggest bingo site in the UK and it’s very hard to argue with that statement, especially when you consider the way it treats its regular customers. Many sites simply neglect their clientele once sign up is completed, but that’s not the case at tombola. There is always something going on, promotions wise, and the promotions apply to all players no matter how ‘long in the tooth’ in terms of membership they might be.

So you don’t miss out on any promotional goodness, make sure that the first thing you do each day once you log into your account is click on the ‘promotions’ tab to see what the latest hot deals going down at tombola happen to be.

Mobile Experience and App

Tombola likes to make sure that all its players are catered for, and that includes players who prefer to play on mobile devices. You don’t need to download an app to play at Tombola as you can play via your browser, but you might prefer to as that might give you a more satisfactory mobile experience. The app is available at the AppStore for Apple-based devices, at Google Play for Android-based devices, and at the Kindle Fire store for … the Kindle Fire!

Games and Software Providers

It’s bingo all the way at tombola, as there are no slots or casino games. That may be unusual for a bingo site, but as tombola has more traffic than any other bingo site at the UK, nobody seems to mind. There are three ‘bespoke’ games at the site – BingoRoulette, tombola Roulette and Hamster Race – which is competitive hamster racing!

As for the ‘meat and bones’ of bingo, there’s every discipline that you can think of! 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball, 60-ball and 50-ball bingo are all covered as well as ‘unusual’ bingo titles which will really spice up your bingo playing.

Payment Options:

Because of regulations put in place by the UKGC there is now only one way you can get money into and out of your tombola account – a Visa debit card. You cannot use credit cards at this site, nor does tombola accept any kind of eWallet. The minimum accepted deposit is £10, as is the minimum withdrawal. Deposits are processed instantly; bit withdrawals take between three and five days to appear in your account.

Customer Support

Tombola has a great reputation for responding to questions promptly. Their 24/7 support team takes an average of four seconds to deal with LiveChat questions, and eight seconds to answer (free)phone calls. They also aim to respond to emails within four hours. The ‘Help’ section on the tombola website also contains plenty of information that is well categorised for easy access.


At tombola, the stakes are low and you don’t have to invest a massive amount in order to enjoy the prizes on offer. It’s a credit to tombola that their popularity rests on how much people love playing their unique games, and coming back for more.


Q. Why does tombola not have any slots?

  1. It’s the site policy. Tombola styles itself as a bingo site only.

Q. How do you know that tombola is the most popular bingo site available?

  1. Because in terms of traffic (i.e. number of players) there is no other bingo site in the UK that even comes close.

  1. That would be 90-ball bingo which is the form of bingo played in the UK.
