Play Paper Bingo - 50 Ball Bingo

Article Updated On 23rd July 2020

Tombola have released yet another impressive new version of the popular bingo game. Following on from last month's launch of The Machine, they've now released a 50 ball game and it's called Paper. Not only is this an amazingly creative looking game it also gives Tombola their first penny bingo option. Previously the cheapest games were in Bingo Lite at 2p a ticket. Now you can play at the site for just 1p a ticket. Put your feet up and are you sitting comfortably?

How To Play Paper Bingo

Tombola's recent additions to the bingo world have all been incredibly stylish - and Paper is no different. The room background is a multi-layered mountain view that's been crafted from paper. Clouds move along the top of the scene whilst paper trees dominate the foregorund. Notices appear on the end of lollipop sticks. The bingo tickets are strips of paper that fold down when numbers are called and a 'homemade' traffic light counts down to the start of the game. As usual Tombola's attention to detail is impressive.

When you login to Tombola and enter Paper you're offered access to fourteen different rooms that are all related to paper. These are called Wrapping, Tracing, Tissue, Craft, Parchment, Origami and Sand. Each room runs it's own game and players can opt to wager 1p, 2p, 5p, or 10p per ticket. To play a game you simply choose the tickets that you want to buy. Just click on the "buy" buttons at the foot of the screen to choose your tickets and then confirm your purchase. You can play between 1 and 5 tickets per game.

Jackpot Prizes

Numbers are called as in other versions of bingo, although in the case of Paper they appear via a ticker at the top of the page. The aim of the game is to get a full house by matching all five numbers on one of your tickets. The full house jackpot amount is dependent on the cost of your ticket. If you call house in just 5 calls to win a 500 jackpot whilst there's 100 guaranteed if you call house in 6 calls. This is based on 1p a ticket. These prizes increase with ticket price.

A relaxing soundtrack accompanies game play and the bingo caller's mellow tones reminds us of voice over actors from 70s children's TV. Just before eyes down you're told to "settle in it's about to begin" followed by "are you sitting comfortably." In fact we do get a feeling that old style 70s children's TV shows may well have influenced the design of Paper. Take a look and let us know what you think?

Our Verdict

Everytime Tombola release a new game we wonder where they go next. The Machine, which is still the most impressive version of bingo online, was always going to be a tough act to follow. However Paper is another worthy addition to the impressive Tombola line-up. The graphics and design are just incredible and really make imagery on other platforms look dated. We love the theme too and the biggest plus point is that Tombola bingo players can now play for just 1p a ticket.

That said, whilst the soundtrack and caller take us back to childhood TV shows it is a bit soporific. We didn't know whether to go for a nap or try and find episodes of Bagpuss on Youtube. However this relaxing tune and bingo caller have probably been chosen to detract away from the fact that Paper is a speed bingo game. Overall this is another brilliant game from Tombola. We look forward to see what they have next to offer.
