Tombola Login @ www.tombola.co.uk
Tombola was launched by Phil Cronin in 1999 that arrived with free-to-play games only. They also built platforms, with their most notable partner being The Sun back in 2006. In summer 2008 they took the decision to provide their gaming exclusively via www.tombola.co.uk. They are based in Sunderland where they are a big employer across the region. Outside of the UK they have other dedicated sites targeting both Italy and Spain where they have become dominant. They do also claim to be the UK’s most popular bingo website. From running some Alexa checks for local visit rankings they popped up in 2nd (approx 1000), only edged out by Jackpotjoy (approx 850).
The following brands by traffic were Sun, Sky, Gala, Mecca, Costa, Heart, Foxy then Wink. It is interesting to see their previous partner performing so well. There is little surprise seeing Gala and Mecca up there since these are the major retail chains with Gala having 130 clubs and Mecca having 90. We would have expected Foxy Bingo do be ranking higher. As well as being one of the biggest spenders on TV advertising they are commanding all of the top spots in Google for the top industry terms. Competition is of course intensified in this niche with more than 400 sites competing for new players. It is those enticing welcome bonuses that can make all the difference.
Tombola’s bonus is £20 free when you deposit £10 and so it isn’t the biggest. Once you sign in and head through the Tombola login you will see that the interface differs to other major brands where there is commonly matched software platforms. The difference here is that they have built their very own software in-house. There are many games to get involved in, but the rooms can get very crowded. During peak times they have more than 9000 players signed in. Even when we checked on a Saturday before lunch time they had 5500 players getting involved. It may be tricky to land those jackpots, but they do claim to pay out more than £7 million every week.
