New Sun Bingo Television Advert

Monday, Mar. 12th 2018 4:36 AM

Over the years we have seen many adverts from our favourite online bingo sites; some of which have been great, and others not so much. In our humble opinion, for an advert to be successful, it must be funny, catchy and memorable whilst still portraying the message they want to get across. Sun Bingo have recently released their offering, and we must say, it’s up there with the best of them.

The star of the advert is a comedian called Jayde Adams. You might not recognise the name, but she has quite a CV including winning the Funny Women award in 2014 and being nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2016, She also has a couple of television appearances under her belt including an appearance on 8 Out Of 10 Cats; So, she seems a perfect fit for Sun Bingo.

Mecca Bingo Launch The #Meccarena

Tuesday, Jan. 9th 2018 7:56 AM

When it comes to adverts for online bingo, we have seen quite a few over the years. Some have really grabbed our attention, and others, bored us to tears. It would be fair to say that the ones that have gotten a thumbs up from us are those that have a great soundtrack. The old school Foxy adverts are classic examples using iconic tunes like We Are Family and You’re The One That I Want. Mecca Bingo are now on the list with their latest offering and if you have seen the advert already, you will know why!

The Mecca Bingo advert uses a parody of the 1983 song by Los Del Rio, Macarena, and it was this that had our attention the moment it could be heard playing went we went to the kitchen to make a cup of tea in the commercial break!

Betfred Bingo Back On TV

Saturday, Dec. 23rd 2017 7:55 AM

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Betfred Bingo on television advertising their wares. In fact, we can’t recall the last time we saw this brand on TV. That’s all changed now though as with the new look Betfred comes a marketing campaign to bring the site to the attention of the masses.

We’ve seen the commercial from Betfred Bingo, and if you haven’t yet, you can view it later in this article. It’s not got head-turning qualities but the game show theme certainly made us take notice when it came on TV. That could just be because we are always on the scout for the latest bingo news thought rather than the format….

New Look Iceland Bingo

Saturday, Nov. 25th 2017 4:36 AM

Has your mum been to Iceland Bingo recently? If she has then is no doubt still raving about their new look. Their old site and its orange colour scheme was starting to look a tad dated, but we are glad to say that is now a thing of the past, and it has been replaced with a more modern design that is pleasing to the eye.

The new Iceland Bingo homepage is bright and welcoming, and everything you could possible need is just a mouse click away. The cartoon style graphics have gone, in favour of bold blocks of colour detailing their latest games and promotions along with an impressive welcome offer. They have even done away with the old logo, and in its place, you’ll find a curvier and more stylish proposition.

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.
