Since the beginning of 2020, there has been a myriad of winners at Tombola Bingo including scores of lucky players who’ve taken home a jackpot win. However, so far, no-one has managed to beat player Paulamurf’s record pay-out of £10,000, which she won week commencing 7th January.
Paulamurf is a regular player at the popular UK online bingo site. Although she’s been enjoying the different games at Tombola for years, she says that up until now, she’s “watched other people win jackpots but never thought it would be me”.
One fateful day in January 2020, however, Paula went into “total shock” when she realised that she’d won a whopping £10,000 while playing Bingo Roulette. She says that her jackpot win occurred in the early hours of the morning.
Before Paula, the last player to grab the £10k jackpot in Bingo Roulette was kip123xx just before Christmas 2019. Thanks to her win, the lucky lady was able to pay off a family holiday and celebrate her unexpected prize by taking her husband and children to their local Winter Wonderland.
Bingo Roulette is just one of many exclusive games that players can enjoy at Tombola. However, it is unlike most bingo games in that it features a roulette wheel. Roomies can choose to play in four different rooms (Venetian, Bellagio, Mirage or Luxor), and the prizes depend on how many players are at each wheel as well as how much they have paid to play.
At the beginning of each game, players receive eight chips which are randomly placed on numbers on the wheel. As the numbers are announced, their respective chips are removed, and if a player manages to clear all their chips within ten calls, they win the biggest jackpot. The smaller jackpot can be won by clearing all of the chips within twelve calls.
