Tombola Bingo Review

Tombola Bingo has got to be ‘THE’ premier bingo site in the UK. The reason why the site is so well regarded is surely down to the fact that Tombola Bingo offer a truly unique online bingo experience, helped no doubt by the heritage that the company has. Tombola is a British company based in the North-East of England and the people behind the bingo site have been involved in the game of bingo for over half a century – in the early days just as suppliers of bingo cards for land-based bingo halls, then later on adding the supply of bingo cards for national newspapers and TV bingo games to their repertoire.

Tombola Bingo originally hit the internet in 2000 when they started providing free bingo games for companies such as Lycos and Lastminute.com. Then in 2005, Tombola Bingo joined forces with News International, owners of The Sun and the News of the World newspapers, launching sunbingo.co.uk.

For over three years both Tombola Bingo and Sun Bingo thrived, becoming one of the biggest bingo sites in the UK. However in August 2008 Sun Bingo moved to Gamesys and Tombola Bingo launched as its own independent bingo site. This move proved hugely popular with online bingo players and today Tombola Bingo has grown to become Britain’s biggest bingo site with over £3 million in prizes being won there every single week.
