Good news for UK Bingo lovers. The country's two top internet bingo operators, Tombola and Cashcade (owner of the popular Foxy Bingo and many others) are fighting hard for pole position in the British bingo market. For players this means great games, generous prizes and even better customer service from both sites, as Cashcade tries to knock Tombola off the No. 1 perch.
Tombola Has the Edge
Recently crowned Bingo Operator of the Year 2010 at the annual online bingo summit, tombola bingo is pushing ahead of Cashcade in the British bingo war. The most recent UK Online Bingo Industry Report agrees that Bingo players themselves are putting Tombola in the number one spot. In October alone, 280,000 players visited Tombola, where they bought a whopping £46 million worth of tickets. So what makes Tombola so popular?
Reasons for Tombola's Success
Tombola's operators say that by focussing on one product only-the tombola.co.uk site-they have successfully developed the best of online bingo games and prizes, and offer promotions appreciated by British players. The hint is that having a finger in too many pies may not be an advantage for Cashcade, which runs Get Minted online casino, as well as numerous bingo sites that Brits know and love.
Emmerdale Gives Tombola the Nod
Bingo players aren't the only ones who know a good thing when they see it. Premier league side Sunderland AFC and much-loved ITV soap Emmerdale have both signed sponsorship deals with tombola. Watch out for those ads!
