Foxy Bingo

Foxy Bingo And
Heather Graham

When you think of the brand Foxy Bingo you think of a cheeky fox in a purple suit who has a northern accent and likes to hang out with celebs from TOWIE right? At least that is what we have always associated the brand with, that and Jeremy Kyle. Well the news today is that this is all set to change!

Hot on the heels of the termination of affiliate contracts, Foxy Bingo have announced that they are also kicking Jeremy Kyle to the kerb as part of a new £10 million marketing campaign. But what can you expect from this new way of promoting the popular brand? The answer is simple – Heather Graham, an AMERICAN actress.

bgo Underfire From The ASA

Saturday, Oct. 22nd 2016 7:07 AM

It was only a short while ago that we reported on the fact that gambling adverts may well be banned on television before the 9pm watershed [read more here]. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) furnished us with details of figures of complaints about gambling / betting adverts and although they were quite small, of the rulings for the week 19th October, there were FOUR that were gambling related.

bgo, Titanbet, Coral and LeoVegas all appeared in the rulings on the ASA page and three of the four complaints were upheld! There were three parts to the complaint about the bgo commercial but only one of the three was upheld.

Gambling Adverts

Gambling Adverts

Adverts for the gambling industry look set to vanish not only from our daytime TV screens but also social media due to fears that they are influencing the young, resulting in gambling problems. Under current rules, adverts are allowed to be shown before the 9pm watershed, but recent figures from the Gambling Commission have shown the number of 18 to 24-year old’s with gambling problems has trebled over the past three years.

Figures from The Advertising Standards Authority show that last month they received a total of 3,395 complaints about 2,301 different adverts. Of these complaints, only 224 (7%) were about betting / gambling adverts. In total 3% of the adverts complained about were betting / gambling related.

Ladbrokes Bingo – A History In Adverts

Thursday, Sep. 29th 2016 7:00 AM

We’ve seen many different online bingo brands advertise their wares on television; some good, some bad and some downright shocking. Ladbrokes Bingo have quite a colourful history of television commercials and we’ve see a whole array of different storyboards for their adverts.

At the Ladbrokes Bingo site you will find a page dedicated to the history of the commercials they have aired. We were surprised to find that the bingo has not been on the small screen for three years now. The first of the ads we could see was the one featuring Dave who liked to sniff his car parts.

Who Sings The Wink Bingo Advert Song?

Tuesday, Sep. 6th 2016 7:54 AM

When it comes to great advertising there are a number of bingo commercials that have caught our attention over the years and you’ll probably recall one or two of them. Who can forget the dancing dog of the Wink Bingo advert or the pyjama clad woman dancing on the ceiling from the same site? For us the recent campaigns from this brand have been quite dull in comparison, so the new advert came as a very pleasant surprise – not least of all because we love the backing track used!

A little bit of research revealed the Wink Bingo advert song is called Goodness and it’s by a band called Sonny Cleveland. Better still, it’s available to download on iTunes right now at just 79p! The commercial advertises the brand new welcome offer for new players of £5 free and we think it’s going to be a hit amongst viewers and certainly likely to increase the sales of the song.

Live TV At Lucky Diner Bingo

Friday, Jul. 29th 2016 7:17 AM

As regular readers here at Playing Bingo will know, I am not a huge fan of the Cozy Games products. Over the years I have been more than a little scathing but you may have noticed, this has lightened a little recently. First, the sites reduced the minimum withdrawal amounts, then they created Wizard of Bingo and now Lucky Diner Bingo has Live TV.

It’s odd because I’ve never really been impressed with what the likes of Gala Bingo have to offer by way of the live shows, and the G2 Gtech stuff certainly doesn’t float my boat, but a visit to the new bingo site, Lucky Diner Bingo, on their second night of opening, and I stayed for the session – only leaving to eat my dinner! Maybe I didn’t give the others a fair crack of the proverbial whip.

Can U Beat The Boss At bgo

Saturday, Jul. 9th 2016 7:25 AM

Verne Troyer has been The Boss at bgo for quite some time now and not so long ago he was joined as Paris Hilton in a selection of commercials for the brand. That in itself would have had quite a price tag on it but the most recent adverts for the brand will also have cost quite a lot.

The reason for the hefty price tag on the latest commercials is more than just the cost of filming and location because bgo have used an iconic tune in their advert. bgo have created their own parody of the iconic 90’s tune, U Can’t Touch This by MC Hammers and called it U Can’t Beat This. Watching the advert you’re not quite sure how you should be feeling; embarrassed for Mr Troyer strutting his funky stuff to the tune or just taking it for what it is, a bit of fun that grabs the viewers attention.
