Play Rollercoaster Bingo - 40 Ball Bingo

Article Updated On 1st March 2019

Back in 2009 Tombola launched one of their many variations on bingo game. We believe that Roller Coaster was probably the first online variation of the 40 ball game. Most certainly it's one of the only 40 ball games outside of the Virtue Fusion Network. It's also the only bingo game that features a theme park disaster.

Rollercoaster Bingo at Tombola

  • Type Of Game: 40 Ball Bingo
  • Cost: 25p
  • Open: 24/7
  • Jackpots: Progressive in 5 or 6 calls
  • Extras: Max 4 cards per player
  • Special Features: Numbers are thrown out of the rollercoaster!

How To Play Rollercoaster

When you login to Rollercoaster at Tombola you're greeted with an image of a corkscrew and four cars each with five spaces. These cars represent your bingo cards. Each card costs 25p and you can purchase a maximum of four cards per game. The aim of the game is to get a full house - five balls - before other players.

Instead of numbers, Rollercoaster Bingo has people. These people are drawn in quite a unique way. The rollercoaster speeds around the track and as it goes upside down it throws out one "bingo ball". If the ball matches one of the names in your carts then it's a number crossed off your ticket. Thankfully no bingo ball people are hurt during the playing of the game.

What Jackpots Can You Win?

As well as a full house prize, Rollercoaster also boasts two bingo Jackpots. There's 5000 if house is called in 5 calls and 500 of house is called in 6 calls. We suspect the odds of winning these pots are quite high and would love to know how often they do get won. Unfortunately there's no indication of the when the last jackpot win occurred.

Rollercoaster Bingo at Tombola does attract a decent number of players and the full house for each game is usually around 25. Thankfully there's no sign of Ronan Keating at any point in the game, although there's a very enthusiastic announcer at the end of each game.

Our Verdict

People being thrown out of a rollercoaster ride shouldn't really make for a fun bingo game - but it does! We love the way the numbers are drawn and wish more games were as innovative. The fact that this game is 10 years old and it's still entertaining is testament to it's originality.

One minor grumble is that there's only one price point for this game. We'd love to see a cheaper room. As is as 25p a ticket there's a tendancy to opt and play all four cards making each turn 1. We'd also love to see different locations for each game - although you can switch the look from day to night if you like.
