Harry Styles Bingo Caller

Bingo Caller
Harry Styles

We all know Harry Styles, member of One Direction, multi-million selling artist, songwriter and actor extraordinaire. He must be one of the most-known men on the planet, and it’s rare for him to be able to go anywhere without being hounded by the paparazzi.

He is also very good friends with Nick Grimshaw, the breakfast DJ from BBC Radio 1. Nick decided Harry needed to get away from the limelight for a while, so took him on a trip to meet some very special people.

Paddy McGuiness Outs Barbara Windsor At Jackpot Joy

Friday, Sep. 15th 2017 7:47 AM

Over the years we have seen a number of celebrities take centre stage in an online bingo commercial, and with some sites, more than one celeb has been seen on the screen for the same brand. However, when others have used multiple celebrities in one advert, they’ve usually been Z-listers. Not Jackpot Joy though, there new commercial has two well-known faces in!

When we first heard the news that Paddy McGuinness was recording a new commercial for Jackpot Joy, we thought the emphasis was going to be on the Take Me Out themed bingo game. This is not the case, far from it. It looks as though this much-loved northerner is going to be the face of the brand, at least for a while.

Foxy Being Outed From Adverts

Foxy Bingo

Foxy Being Pushed
Out Of Adverts

It was a little while ago now that Heather Graham did a ‘Stig’ with the Foxy Bingo commercials and was revealed as the person in the suit of our favourite loveable woodland creature. When the advert was released back in March, we suggested that GVC Holdings (the company who now own Foxy Bingo) were trying to move away from a certain type of clientele and trying to attract a classier demographic [read more here]. What we didn’t think they would do is lose the brand / player connection so quickly!

In the latest advert from the brand, there is no visual of Foxy AT ALL. We hear his voice, but there’s no sign of our friendly Northern, purple suited fox anywhere. Again we suggest that GVC are committing brand suicide.

Gala Bingo Sponsor Aussie Soaps

Saturday, Aug. 26th 2017 7:45 AM

Neighbours and Home and Away were always a main stay of early evening TV when we were kids. We have fond memories of coming home from college and lolloping in the chair to catch up with the latest happenings with the likes of Harold and Madge and Scott and Charlene. However, both Aussie soap casts have changed since then but they both still remain popular in the UK.

It’s no surprise then to hear that Gala Bingo have just secured a deal with Channel 5 to sponsor both of these Aussie soaps! This means that over the coming weeks, if you watch the shows, then you’ll see the popular online and retail brand in the commercial breaks.

Castle Jackpot Bingo Open Their Portcullis

Tuesday, Aug. 1st 2017 7:38 AM

We’re used to an array of new bingo sites opening on a regular basis, and you’ve only got to look at our dedicated page to find details of brands that are coming soon too. However, sometimes a site will go undetected by our journalistic nose and this is the case with Castle Jackpot Bingo.

Castle Jackpot Bingo first came to our attention when we were checking out the new Big Brother. Whilst we aren’t fans, we caught it when we were channel hopping in the commercial break, and it was here that we found the new bingo site! This brand are currently the sponsors of Big Brother.

VIP Games At Bingo Loopy

Thursday, Apr. 20th 2017 7:54 AM

Bingo Loopy is a name that has been around for quite some time in the world of online bingo. Recently the site underwent a bit of a makeover. Usually a new look for a site consists of a lick of virtual paint only, not for this brand. At this site (and a few others on the IP&S network) it was not a change in aesthetics but a change in software platform.

The site is no longer powered by the Virtue Fusion software but is using the Bede Gaming platform. The change is quite noticeable in the rooms but some of the promotional schedule remains unchanged. Remember, there is still chance to get in on the VIP games action at Bingo Loopy.

New Iceland Bingo Advert A Bit Dull

Thursday, Mar. 30th 2017 7:01 AM

When it comes to advertising any brand on television, the commercial has to catch the attention of the viewer and maintain their interest for it’s duration. A lot of online bingo adverts fall short in our opinion and the latest comes from Iceland Bingo. This brand has been around quite a while, and this is not the first time that they have advertised their wares on television, but the previous commercial was more interesting and at least had some brand / player connection.

The new advert for Iceland Bingo is full of animation but even that’s not very interesting. It consists of the logo, a penny bingo ball, a few words and then the voiceover waxing lyrical about how the site gives away of £4 million a month in prizes. It is worth noting that this is across multiple games, including slots.

Gala Bingo Back With New Advert

Tuesday, Mar. 21st 2017 7:21 AM

Gala Bingo are back on the small screen with a new advert and it’s one that instantly made is wince when we saw it. The reason for this is that having watched it all the way through, our concern was that it was ripe for an investigation from the Advertising Standards Authority under the BCAP Code 17.4.5.

This code is a rule that says gambling adverts must not “be likely to be of particular appeal to under-18s, especially by reflecting or being associated with youth culture”. The whole Gala Bingo advert looks to be set in a circus or a funfair, both of which will hold appeal for youngsters.
