Here at Keep Calm, we may be traditionalists, but we’re always on the lookout for something fresh and different. Tombola is certainly a good place to start. This is a standalone site with its own unique software, so it certainly isn’t one of those identikit templates you sometimes find on those big networks. Despite its solo status, it is quite well known, largely through its status as sponsors of the popular lunchtime TV chat show Loose Women.

It may be unique, but you won’t find any trouble finding your way around this well designed site. The home page layout is familiar enough for online bingo players, and features a striking turquoise backdrop – itself a refreshing change from all the usual pink and fuchsia. 90, 80, 75 and 50 ball versions of bingo are offered, all very smooth running and the equal of any of the bigger name designers’ efforts. In keeping with their innovative approach, they also offer the exclusive Bingo 60, an unusual variable stake game where your winnings depend on the price you pay for your ticket! Most of the games are available on mobile format too, via their downloadable App. The chat rooms are lively and very friendly, with their CMs all UK based, mostly in the North East. It may not have the advantage of having sister networked sites to bump up the numbers, but it’s a big enough name in its own right to offer some really juicy jackpots and prizes. The last fifty jackpot winners are all listed on the site, with plenty of four and even five figure winners every day. There are plenty of additional alternative games to choose from as well, including some interesting exclusives such as the Hamster Race, which is a bit like those horse racing machines you find in traditional seaside amusement arcades.

It’s easy to get started on Tombola. Once you’ve registered your personal details, just click on “My Account”. You can pay by Visa or MasterCard credit cards, or Delta and Maestro debit cards. Only one e-payment method is provided, but as that method is the ever popular PayPal, this may well be enough for most players. The minimum deposit amount is £10. Wagering requirements are also a little unconventional on this site, but certainly not in a bad way. Basically, you just need to keep the same amount of real money as you have in bonus funds in your account. This effectively means that you must wager 1 x your bonus funds in real deposits before making a claim. The minimum withdrawal amount is also very reasonable at a mere £10. You can expect it to take up to a week for your withdrawn funds to reach your account, perhaps a little less if you are using PayPal.

So all in all, Tombola is a great site to visit if you are looking for something a bit fresh and different. With plenty of unique features and exclusive games and bingo formats, you should find something to interest you on this innovative site. It is licenced and registered via the UK overseas territory of Gibraltar, so you can play safe in the knowledge that it is fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
