Picture Bingo – Tombola
Before the grand unveiling in June 2019, Picture Bingo was known as “Pirates”, which was a simple 45-ball bingo game with images of pirates on treasure map tickets instead of traditional numbers. But why the change? Tombola was spurred on to reinvent its Pirates game after Adobe Flash made the shock announcement it would be terminating all programs, meaning third-party apps and gaming content would cease to operate after 2020. Unique and exclusively owned software was developed in-house specifically for Picture Bingo and by doing this Britain’s biggest bingo site was able to add more rooms and more ways to win while staying true to the original format.
How Do You Play Picture Bingo?
Picture Bingo offers one-line and full house prizes in every game with tickets starting at 5p each. There are three themes to choose from, Pirates, Circus and Mystery. Pirates offers an adventure of the high seas; Circus is packed full of performing artists and the Mystery room is a whodunit special. Rooms are open 24/7 with chat games and quizzes hosted randomly throughout the day and night. Players can win two £1 chat bonuses * in a 24-hour period (*no wagering). Members with an asterisk next to their username are “blinged” players, which simply means they have received the maximum bonus prizes per day.
When a room is selected, players will be presented with four different stake options with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 tickets per game. Having all three tickets in play gives the best possible chance of winning with prizes for one-line and a full house in every game. Two-line Tuesdays is a promotion running across all three rooms every Tuesday, guaranteeing two-line prizes too.
Use the plus or minus buttons on those tickets to get to your desired bet level. Tickets of 5p will set you back 15p for maximum tickets, 10p will be 30p for all three tickets, 25p per ticket will set you back 75p for the max tickets while the 50p option will cost no more than £1.50p per play.
The number of players in the game, the real money prizes https://latestbingobonuses.com/real-money available and jackpots will be displayed to the top left of the screen at all times. The home icon to the lower of the chat takes you to the main lobby while the figurehead pulls up a list of all players in the room.
There are 45 symbols reflecting each themed room, 15 per ticket. Symbols are randomly selected and you can choose whether to have character animation/sounds on or off. Mark one-line (5 characters/icons), two-lines or a full house on any ticket before anyone else to win.
