What is penny bingo?

Penny bingo is like any normal online bingo game, except you can play from just 1p. This gives you the excitement of higher stake games at a fraction of the cost. They're a fun, low-risk way for new players to learn how to play bingo online and yet enjoyable for experienced players too.

How to play penny bingo

If playing bingo from just 1p per ticket tickles your fancy, you're probably wondering how to play penny bingo. The good news is, it's simple! Penny bingo works in the same way as any other type. You can play low-stakes versions of many favourites, including 90-ball, 80-ball, and 75-ball bingo.

Tombola penny bingo is as easy and fun as our other formats. To get started, you'll need to:

  • Make sure you have funds in your account
  • Choose a game that offers 1p stakes (our game Paper, for example)
  • Select how many tickets you'd like to buy
  • Confirm your purchase for the game

Once underway, you can either manually mark your ticket or use the auto-dabbing function. By manually marking, you can feel more involved in the game. But don't worry if you do happen to miss one because numbers are automatically marked for you. And if you choose to use auto-dabber, you can sit back, relax and enjoy a natter in the chat rooms while watching the game play out.

Low-cost games can still provide plenty of fun, but remember - even with tickets costing just 1p, always play responsibly and within your budget. Use our safeplay tools to set your limits and contact us if you need any support.

What tombola penny bingo games are available?

There are so many games to explore with us and our amazing community. At tombola, you can play free online bingo with our daily game, but we also offer Paper, our penny bingo game where you can play for, you guessed it, just 1p!

Paper is our penny bingo game – costing a minimum of 1p per ticket! It's available to play at any point during the week and there’s a single prize to be won in every game and a two-tier Jackpot up for grabs too. Prizes in each game vary depending on how many are playing, with the biggest on offer during peak times.

The two Jackpot amounts never change. From a 1p stake, you can win a £500 Jackpot if you clear all five numbers within five calls or £100 if you clear them within six calls. You can also play Paper with 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p tickets and the potential Jackpot will increase depending on your spend. The maximum number of tickets you can buy per game is five.

What other low-cost types of bingo games are available?

Here at tombola, you'll notice we have all the traditional and most popular types of bingo, with most starting from just 5p a ticket.

All our games are made in-house, so both the traditional forms of bingo and our other formats have the unique tombola style.

You won't find games such as our pulsating bingo game Pulse, our numberless Morph games or our card-based bingo games, Nevada and Cinco, anywhere else!
