Tombola Arcade Review
Tombola are well known for being one of The UK's leading bingo brands. However, they entered the games and slots arena in July 2016 with the launch of Tombola Arcade. The premise of this site was to offer fun slots and instant win games in a safe and secure environment. Additionally players can only wager between 5p and £1.
Tombola Arcade is very much different to every other brand that's reviewed on our casino pages. All the games are in-house and unique to Arcade. Players who have already signed up to Tombola can login to Arcade using the same details - and same account. The design of the site is simple and dominated by the minty green that's associated with the brand. Gameplay is available on desktop, mobile, tablet and app.
New players to Tombola Arcade (and who haven't joined Tombola) are offered a 200% welcome bonus. Deposit from £10 to receive a further £20 to play. Note that players must accept the bonus while making first deposit and that bonus funds can never be withdrawn. On the flipside no wagering terms apply to bonuses from Tombola.
Login to Tombola Arcade and you'll have access to a variety of instant win games and slots. These include emoji, scratch, flip, pick, bubble, go and glow. Slot players need to select spin to be offered an option of four themed slots - egyptian, fruit, steampunk and archeology. Each of these slots are 3 row, 5 reel games with 20 paylines.
Wagering on these slots starts at just 5p a spin. The maximum wager is £1. Despite these cheap prices each game has bonus rounds and a return to player (RTP) of 98.5%. The slots are basic but entertaining and you can't argue with the price point. It'd be nice to see a few variations on the games though rather than just different themes.
Tombola Arcade Promotions are limited. The main offer is the brand's Refer A Friend scheme - Playmates. Share codes with your friends to earn rewards and when they win you win too. At time of writing £5 bonus codes were available for distribution. Tombola Arcade is also the sponsor of I'm A Celebrity and during the series they have ran exciting offers and giveaways.
If you enjoy instant win games and slots, but prefer cheap games then Tombola Arcade is worth a visit. The slots are good fun and at 5p a spin we're not sure you'll find better value. That said the variety and options available are quite limited. We would like to see Tombola expand their games - especially under 'spin' as most games are instants.
