Film Bingo Celebrate Father’s Day

Thursday, Jun. 1st 2017 7:29 AM

June boasts a whole host of special dates on the calendar including Flip A Coin day on 1st, Hug Your Cat Day on 4th, Monkey Around Day on 14th and National Pink Day on 23rd. None of these dates are well known but on Sunday 18th June this year, it is Father’s Day and it is this day that Film Bingo are celebrating.

It seems on fair considering they were host to an exclusive promotion for Mother’s Day in March. Now, whilst the emphasis may be on Father’s Day at Film Bingo, the exclusive offer is not restricted to just the male of our species. The prizes may be more gender specific but we all have a father, grandfather, brother or husband who could enjoy the tangible prizes on offer.

New Bingo Hall
For Dudley

The wheels of the bingo industry recovery vehicle may be moving slowly since the change in bingo taxation, but they are moving surely. The latest news is that there will (hopefully) be a new bingo hall opened in Dudley as part of a gambling facility.

We say hopefully, as planning permission has not yet been approved buy local authorities. The 450 seat bingo hall will be located on the ground floor offering 14 bingo sessions per week. Upstairs will be the casino, named Casino 36. Casino 36 opened a casino in Wolverhampton in 2016 at a cost of over £7 million.

Tuesday, May. 23rd 2017 7:07 AM

If you haven’t yet registered with the popular bingo site, Sun Bingo, now really is a good time to see what they have to offer as they have just upped the welcome package for new players. Previously newbies were awarded a 300% cash match bonus when they deposited and played through £10 on bingo at the site. The new bonus is 400%!

The increase is actually not for bingo, the bonus given for this game remains the same as before – £20 (200%). It’s the all games bonus that has been revved up a little at Sun Bingo, rising to a £20 bonus rather than just £10 for new players.

Foxy Zero Vanishes!

Foxy Zero
Closes Down

Over the last few months we have seen many changes to popular brands under the Cashcade / bwin.Party hat. The changes include a change of mascot at Foxy Bingo and Casino, a makeover for Cheeky Bingo and today, we have found the Foxy Zero is no more!

Foxy Zero launched a few months after Cheeky Bingo opened in February 2009 so has been around for quite some time. However, whilst it may have been around a while, in all that time is has always been in the shadows when compared to the likes of Cheeky and Foxy Bingo. You only had to look at the overall design of the site before it closed to see that it had gathered dust. Where the main Foxy brand had received a swish new look, Zero aged.

bgo Fined By UK Gambling Commission

Saturday, May. 13th 2017 7:35 AM

bgo Entertainment recently received a rather hefty fine from the UK Gambling Commission for breach of their license requirements. bgo fell foul of the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) after they were approached time and time again with regards to how they marketed and advertised free bets and bonuses. The fine they were landed with was £300,000 and is the first of its kind issued to a gambling company.

If you’re a regular reader of our pages then you will know that many online bingo and gaming companies have had their virtual wrists slapped by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) over how they advertise their products. We have seen many commercials banned because of a breach of the BCAP or CAP codes but the ASA do not have the power to impose a fine. The UKGC
