Not content with being known as Britain's Biggest Bingo site, tombola are looking to put their claim to the test by putting on Britain's Biggest Bingo Game too.
When the news of this dropped I was actually amazed to hear that they would be offering up a guaranteed £100,000 full house game on the 1st of every month. What stood out even more was the fact the RTP (return to player) would be set at 100%, which means tombola don't make any money from this game. All tickets sold go directly into the prize pot and potentially increase the prize money.
How to play
The best thing about this game is that is just a normal game of 90 ball bingo, the same as you get in Bingo90. The only difference is you can pre-buy, then the game plays out on the 1st of the following month at 10pm.
In true tombola style, the stakes remain the same as you find in any other game:
- 1 strip: 50p
- 2 strips: £1
- 3 strips: £1.50
- 4 strips: £2
If you go into the Britain's Biggest Bingo Game on tombola you'll see a countdown to the next game as well as the current totaliser. That chat room does not open until 8:30pm on the night the game plays out.
Prize money already going up!
UPDATE: After just the first week of ticket sales the prize money has already exceeded the £100,000 that tombola seeded it with and at the time of writing this update (9th October) it has pushed past £125,000.
That means, assuming every player bought in at £2, that is a minimum of 62,500 players you are up against to win this prize!
While this seems astronomical (which it is) you have to position that against the odds of say winning a similar amount on the National Lottery, which would be way more difficult to win than this. Having a punt at £2 once a month isn't going to break the bank and I think this game will be a big winner for tombola.
