Thursday, Feb. 8th 2018 7:43 AM

Bingo has been used to raise money for various charities for as long as we can remember and whilst it may have started in the local village hall, the world of online bingo has quite a few sites who raise money for good causes through special games and promotions too. Give Back Bingo are one such site and when you think about it, it’s pretty apparent in the brand name.

Charity Bingo
Needs An Update

Regular readers here at Playing Bingo will know that for some time now we have had an issue with Charity Bingo and their inability to keep their players informed of the donations being made to charity. The whole ethos of the site, its unique selling point is that they donate £1 to charity for every £20 you deposit, but regular updates to the charity of the month and the donations made are a rarity.

A previous article like this resulted in an update to the charity pages [read the article here] following the brand providing no update since March 2015! We are now in October and currently the dedicated page shows donations up until June 2015 only.

Lollipop Bingo Charity Chew Promotion

Thursday, Jul. 30th 2015 7:54 AM

Tomorrow night sees the 15 Network sites play their monthly Pay Day jackpot game, a game that boasts the largest jackpot available on this network. There’s £1,000 to be won and tickets for the game cost 50p each and are on sale right up until just before the game starts. Each of the sites on the network hosts the game, but Lollipop Bingo have a bit more to offer than most from the Pay Day jackpot game with their Charity Chews promotion.

The jackpot and chances to win remain the same at Lollipop Bingo but buying a ticket at their site will see half of the ticket price donated to a worthy cause. Currently, the charity that Lollipop are supporting is the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) but this is only for the first six months, after this players will get to choose the charity.

Two Bingo Clubs Raise 1 Million For Charity

Tuesday, Mar. 24th 2015 10:29 AM

As bingo clubs have always has been closely tied to the communities in which they operate they have always done their bit for local charities. But, there is more to it than bingo halls doing a bit of ‘good PR’ by showing that they care, a lot of bingo halls really do make a difference.

All the big brands are hot on charity initiatives, especially at Christmas, but many clubs are doing good works throughout the year to support local causes. While we would never like to say that one brand is a greater contributor than any other (they all do well), we have to say that two Mecca Bingo clubs are really shining the light with a joint contribution of £1 million pounds.

Danyl Johnson, Dogs Trust And Postcode Bingo

Thursday, Aug. 21st 2014 7:22 AM

On a regular basis the team here at Playing Bingo check the bonus structure at all of the sites that we promote and whilst it is a mammoth task, and a little tedious, it is a task that often reveals some quite interesting changes. One such change sees Postcode Bingo, Danyl Johnson and the Dogs Trust all interlinked.

It might not be an obvious combination but it certainly caught our attention. The home page of Postcode Bingo now sees Danyl Johnson welcoming you to the site and the chance to grab a 200% cash match bonus on first deposit. To receive the bonus you do have to enter the code WIN200 or you will only receive the 100% standard bonus.

Charity Begins At Home

Thursday, Apr. 3rd 2014 12:10 AM

Charity Bingo has a unique selling point over other brands on the 15 Network, the brand offers £1 to charity for every £20 deposited at the site. In January this year Cancer Research benefitted from a donation of £392, in February The British Heart Foundation received £358 and last month Scope hit the jackpot with £529. There’s a real feel good factor to the site but unfortunately, there is a bad smell lingering around the brand that refuses to dissipate.

Prior to January 2014 we can find no historical references to donations made to worthy causes by Charity Bingo and despite contacting the site for information, it has not been provided and emails have been left unanswered. We do know that since the beginning of the year that has been a change in management and this is clear in the transparency of the site now, however it does not negate the fact that since October 2012 until December 2013 the brand refuses to provide details of their charitable donations.
