Launched in autumn 2019, Tombola’s Morph Bingo bingo game has no numbers – following the lead of the same operator’s Picture Bingo, released earlier the same year. This unique shape-shifting game follows an underlying 36-ball game concept, but rather than numbers or bingo balls, there are six shapes in all, in six possible different colours.
Morph Bingo is a single-ticket, multi-stake game that allows players to bust a few shapes! With jackpots worth up to £5,000, what more could you want from your online bingo?
How to play
Tickets are priced at between 5p and £1, and you’ll initially be sent to the shared chatroom, where you can select your stake, hit ‘Buy’ and then you’re ready for action!
Rather than a standard bingo card, you’ll get four strips of four coloured shapes forming a square. You’ll see the Morpher in the middle – this white blob alters its shape and colour after every call to fit one of the 36 potential shape and colour combos.
The shapes include plus signs, diamonds, crosses, circles, triangles and crowns, while the list of colours incorporates orange, green, red, blue, purple and indigo.
As the Morpher matches them, your shapes are marked off, either automatically or manually as you wish. Similarly to bog-standard bingo, you win for one line or completing a Full House first.
Typical prizes for filling one line are around the £4 mark, and a Full House usually earns you around £12, but it will depend on how much you wager.
Morph Bingo Special Features
Morph doesn’t include any special bonus rounds.
Morph also offers a couple of fixed jackpots of a 5,000x stake if you bag a Full House within 21 calls and a 1,000x stake if you do so before 23 calls are up.
Return to Player (RTP)
Expressed as a percentage, this indicates how much players are likely to win back relative to their wagers. As is the case with many online bingo games, this isn’t published separately for Morph, but across all Tombola games, Return to Player (RTP) is guaranteed to be at least 80%. That’s not too shabby at all, and in keeping with most bingo games.
Online bingo just wouldn’t be the same without constant background chatter with your buddies to jolly the games along. Remember, chat moderators are always there to help should you need it.
Reviewers have loved the way Morph looks and works on a mobile phone screen, so it’s a great one to play if you enjoy bingo on the move. Equally, Morph is ideal if you fancy a change from standard balls-and-numbers games.
It may not be the best one as your first-ever outing with online bingo, given that it’s quite different from conventional offerings, but see what you reckon. It’s easy enough to play, it’s a good-looking game and there’s even a mode for players who are colour blind, so you can still enjoy the game if you struggle to differentiate between various shades.
One reviewer felt that Tombola’s Potion game was more innovative and that while the one-line prize was won quickly, a Full House seemed almost impossible to achieve in Morph. But see for yourself.
Tombola has an excellent reputation for treating its players well, and has form when it comes to releasing new games. So check out Morph and let us know how you found it.
Oh and finally, if you’re looking for a certain clay-coloured Plasticine TV star from the ‘80s, you’ll probably be disappointed!
