They do, but the returns are generally very small. They can pay out, but in all cases the top win is capped proportionate to the size of your spin. So a £1 stake will have a max win of £500, and a 5p stake is capped at £50.

The design of their slots is Lovely Stuff though. And they pay out quickly.

I went to the site but I couldn't find any RTP details anywhere. I guess you have to sign up and actually open the games and look in the help files or something.

Are we talking about the Tombola Arcade site here? That's the one I've looked at.

A 500x stake jackpot at 98.5% RTP would probably lend itself to some nice low-rolling sessions. And let's face it, people still get very excited over in the Bonanza thread if it coughs 500x stake....

Aye, Tombola Arcade is the bunny. You can make a small deposit last hours if it’s in the right mood, but rarely will it get to a level you’d want to withdraw.

I think they still have a £20 minimum withdrawal as well.

Keep 1% for the house edge and 0.5% for a scratchcard fantasy payout and hey presto, you've got the greatest slots ever made. Cushty :D

Am i missing something.

Tombola does not have a lot of slots In fact sure they only have one called spin rest are crap arcade games. And the few games they do have are biggest load of piss out so who would want to play them even with 100% RTP.

Just my opinion:D

'Bonus funds can never be withdrawn' - Am I missing something here? There's no wagering requirement listed, it's literally just 'Bonus funds can never be withdrawn'.

What's the point of that? Also, you have to take the bonus when making a first deposit.

Maybe you can win profits from the bonus money but you can't withdraw the initial bonus amount ? So get £50 bonus get it to £150 you are able to withdraw the £100 ? (after wagering is completed)
Otherwise yes its entirely pointless

Yeah, this applies to Bingo where the prizes are paid as cash? So you use bonus funds to play games and win cash?

P.S. Don't be suckered in by this 98.5% figure - if the pay tables have lots of small wins or the variance is low, you'll get the classic 'egg-timer' experience and will lose unless a top pay or near-top pay is hit. It'll just be death by 1000 cuts.

That’s it. Welcome bonus winnings are credited as cash.

Their big thing is fair and responsible gaming, hence small stake limits on all games. They’re very quick to pay out once verified though - generally no more than 24 hours and often less, including weekends.

All games are bespoke to the Arcade site, so you won’t see any familiar names under Slots, but the games are quite fun in themselves.

It's got a realtime chat box, I'm already getting flashbacks to Jackpot Party :D

'Slippers pls'
'Glinda'
'Bubbles'

Lols.

Video coming up on this place, will probably be live tomorrow, I literally can't lose all my money, turns out that 98.5% RTP on low volatility games with a max stake of £1 basically enforces long playtime.

SPOILER ALERT - I'm getting to quite like it, truth be told. I only started off with £75 (£25 deposit + £50 bonus), and have been playing on £1 per go for about five and a half hours. I can't bust out, it's crackers.

OMG this was my life before I found out what a real online slot was! :laugh:

Never made any profit from their games - only the bingo where I had a few decent wins :)

Aye. It’s why I’ve temporarily closed my account there. You can play for hours, but rarely get anything worth withdrawing.
