I have long been a fan of Hamster Races at Tombola Bingo and am quite partial to a game of Cinco now and again but logging in to the site yesterday I was surprise to see yet another game listed, the Tombola Bingo Rollercoaster. Now if you have seen the Tombola Bingo TV adverts then you will know that the whole advert is based on a rollercoaster and this is the taken into the Tombola Bingo Rollercoaster game.
When you open the game room for the Tombola Bingo Rollercoaster game you are offered 5 rollercoaster carriages to buy; each seats 5 people and cost 25 pence for each carriage. When the game begins the rollercoaster loops the loop and falls out (not the most safety conscious fairground ride then?). When you purchase your rollercoaster carriages you will notice they each have a persons name in the seat. The idea is to fill up a carriage with 5 people of the same names as show in your carriage and then you have won the game.
Some would say it is similar to Cinco at Tombola Bingo and to a point I would have to agree; Cinco requires that you cover 5 cards to win whilst the Tombola Bingo rollercoaster games requires you to fill 5 seats. However what Cinco offers is the chance to interact with the game by covering your own cards with chips or letting the computer do it. With the Tombola Bingo rollercoaster game there is no interaction other than to buy you carriages and hope all your seats are filled first.
If you manage to fill a carriage with the first five people who fall out then you will win £5,000; do it in six people and you will win £500 anything more than that and you will take the pot prize.
Surprisingly enough when I was in the Tombola Bingo Rollercoaster room there were over 143 internet bingo players – more than in some of the bingo rooms so it must be proving quite popular.
