It’s no secret that award-winning Tombola is well known for the quality of its bingo games, and one of its offerings, Bingo 90, is the most popular of its kind in the UK. But players who after something a little different could do far worse than take a second look at Hamster Race, the massively fun racing game featuring our furry little friends.
Have a go at picking the hamster you think will win, safe in the knowledge that no actual animals have been treated badly in this game! What’s more, it doesn’t even matter if you’re allergic to rodents.
This game was originally available at Sun Bingo, but now you can play it and enjoy some seriously cute graphics via Tombola’s new-look website. Indeed, it’s exclusive to this operator, so you won’t be able to play it anywhere else.
How to play
There’s nothing at all complicated about playing this game. Just click on the stake tabs to place your wager on your furry creature of choice. You can even check on the animal’s ‘form’ in advance if you wish.
The amount you could win is then displayed on your screen. Once bets have been placed, the race gets underway, and you can watch the hamsters dash across the field to the finishing line.
You can place bets of 25p, 50p, £1 or £2. If you win, your winnings are based on your stake as well as the odds. The winner is, not unreasonably, the one who finishes first, and so if your hamster wins, you’re a winner, too! There are different prizes, depending on how much you have decided to stake.
As mentioned, you can stake between 25p and £2, and the prizes per race are as follows:
- A 25p stake wins you between £1 and £4
- A 50p stake wins you between £2 and £8
- A £1 stake wins you between £4 and £16
- A £2 stake is between £8 and £32
What’s more, you can play this game on your mobile device of choice if you wish. There are other benefits associated with playing via an operator the size of Tombola, from its sociable online community to the 24/7 support and having plenty of other games to switch over to once you’re ready for a break from Hamster Race.
Hamster Race doesn’t feature any bonus rounds.
Sadly you won’t find a progressive jackpot in Hamster Race. Make the most of the high RTP!
Return to Player (RTP)
With Tombola bingo, RTP will always be above 80%, and with their slots, you can look forward to a Return to Player of 98.5% to 99%, so that’s definitely above average.
Horse racing may be thrilling, but hamsters certainly beat those beasts hands (or paws) down when it comes to the cute and fluffy stakes!
This is the game from a respected bingo operator that isn’t a bingo game at all, although, like all Tombola games, it does make use of bingo mechanics.
And you’d be surprised at how much adrenaline these racing critters can generate when they’re racing! Hamster Race is a creative, refreshingly different sort of game which is huge amounts of fun and ideal for when you fancy a change from the norm.
Race a few hamsters yourself and enjoy! We’d love to know how you found it.
