Advantages Fun and Free
Disadvantages You NEVER win anything!
….Yeah right and Pigs might fly or even more unbelievable, Newcastle United might actually win something!Having read so many positive reviews on here regarding the site of “Tombola.com”, I decided to go and take a look at what everyone was raving about, this was several months ago and I have been to the site on very numerous occasions since, unfortunately still waiting for my first win!
The thing I’d like to know is “Will that win ever appear?”I personally doubt it, as I see the site as nothing but a con, well not actually a con, but a bit similar to those useless scratch-cards we are forever getting through the post or bundled into the newspapers, you know, the ones that say you’ve won a prize and to phone this number, you then find out the number will cost you something like £1.50 per minute and you win something like a 99 pence pair of plastic sunglasses.
The site is quick loading and nice and bright colour-wise, but it’s a bit bare, there are six games to play, to which only takes about five minutes of your time to complete all six, the games are as follows:I-scratch:
This game is just a simple scratch-card, yeah you know, where you have uncover three symbols of the same type and you win a cash prize or a £5.00 Amazon voucher. You get nine covered symbols, to which you need scratch off the imaginary silver coating; the idea is to unveil three of the prize-giving symbols.The prizes available are as follows; £5,000, £200, £100, £50, £20 and a £5 Amazon voucher.
Every single time I play this game, I unveil two of the £5,000 symbols and never get the third, which is hardly surprising, as I doubt very much anyone ever has or ever will for that matter, I suspect the most anyone wins is an Amazon voucher and what’s the bets that Amazon are actually one of the sites sponsors! And what are the bets they make a tidy sum off any referrals they send their (Amazon’s) way.The Heist:
Once you have done your daily scratch-card, and once again failed to win anything, you are then offered the chance to play another game called “The Heist”. To play this you need to enter your email address and you are sent a combination to a make believe safe, to which “Shifty the thief” will try and enter (with the combination you were sent), should he be successful, you win £20,000!Yeah right, just as if the site is going to give you twenty grand for the sake of playing a game, me being a cynic, thinks it’s just another email grabber, to send you endless Spam-mail!
Hamster:Hamster is a pretty straightforward race game, it involves a race between six hamsters and the idea is, you get the correct forecast, meaning the hamsters that will come 1st and 2nd in the race. The thing is, you don’t actually choose what hamsters you want to represent you in the race, you’re automatically given your two hamsters. Every time I play this, one of my hamsters either wins or comes second and the other one is usually miles back, I wouldn’t mind betting the same race is given to everyone and no-one in fact wins a carrot off the game.
