Why play online bingo with tombola?

We are tombola, and we think being part of our bingo community is pretty amazing. If you want to know more about why you should be playing bingo with tombola, then keep reading.

We’ve got an incredible selection of unique games, a friendly and welcoming chat community in our Chat Rooms and more than 200 Chat Moderators who can’t wait to meet you. On top of all that, there are free games, monthly promotions and, of course, prizes to be won!

1. Unique bingo games you can’t play anywhere else

You have probably heard a lot about our bingo games; they are completely unique to tombola! We make every part of every game at tombola house. We have a team that think of ideas, a team of designers, a team of builders, a team of testers… you get the idea.

You can play tombola classics like bingo90, or even try bingo75 lines - the game with 5 chances to win. Play a lighter game of bingo for just 1p a ticket with our low stake game Paper. But, firm tombola favourites like our explosive bingo Blocks will have you reaching for two prizes in every game. If that’s not enough, you could try the spellbinding Potion, where players mix ingredients from coloured bottles to try and win three different prizes. 

2. Buzzing bingo Chat Rooms

You might be wondering, what exactly is a Chat Room? Well, every game on tombola has a set of virtual rooms where everyone playing that game can have a natter while they join in. Some games have a shared Chat Room, so everyone playing that game is all in one place, even if multiple games are in play at once. Others have dedicated rooms for each game.

In each Chat Room, you’ll find a Chat Moderator and it’s their job to help you get to grips with the rule, keep the chat going and play fun games and quizzes. You don’t have to be staking in a bingo game to join in with the fun in Chat.

3. Friendly Chat Moderators

At the heart of tombola is our community, and bringing the community spirit, the sing-a-longs and the laughs is our team of more than 200 Chat Moderators. You’ll be able to recognise a Chat Moderator in the room because they always type in red and their name starts with CM.

Our CMs are available 24/7 and there’s one in every room. So, if you want to join the fun, they are a great place to start. Our CMs know all things tombola, so if you find that you are having problems then they can guide you in the right direction. This is even in the middle of a quiz at 3am!

4. Britain's best bingo community 

One of the main reasons we are britain’s biggest bingo site is because of our amazing online bingo community. Many of our rooms have regular players and they’re a great place to catch up with friends and even make new ones. There’s never a dull moment in our bingo community and, with many of our rooms open 24/7, there’s always someone to chat to.

Our Chat Moderators, or CMs for short, also have a whole host of weird and wonderful Chat games to keep you entertained. Anything goes, from a quiz with bonus quiz quids up for grabs, to a whole club tournament where its room against room for the chance at glory, and maybe some vouchers too. Find out more about our bingo Chat Room games.

5. Big bingo promotions    

There’s always lots going on at tombola, including some exciting bingo promotions. You’ll often find that there’s so much to keep up with! So, check out the blog and adverts on the home page once you're logged in to see what’s coming up this week.

Whether we’re guaranteeing prizes or giving you the chance to win a fantastic Full House prize, there’s always something to look forward to.

6. Fair gambling

Bingo is a game of chance and all games on tombola are randomly generated and cannot be pre-determined. We use an industry standard Random Number Generator to determine the results of each game. This ensures that the game is of the high quality that you would expect from tombola.

We’ve got a dedicated page if you’d like to find out more about fair gambling.

7. Keep control of your budget

Although we want everyone to have fun and enjoy their time on tombola, the most important thing is keeping you safe. That’s why, along with our Chat Moderators who are on hand in our Chat Rooms, we have our own dedicated and fully trained safeplay team. They are available for a chat 24/7 and can be found via the safeplay section.  

It's also worth checking out our handy range of safeplay tools. We have everything from Deposit Limits, where you can set yourself a maximum amount you wish to be able to deposit, to Self Exclusion. They are a great way to help manage not only the money you spend on tombola, but the time too.
