Season Bingo Comes Into Season

Tuesday, Dec. 20th 2016 7:30 AM

Season Bingo launched in November 2015 so has only really had one festive season to really come into it’s own. However, of all the brands that we’ve covered in the run up to Christmas, this is the one we feel we should be giving some attention.

Season Bingo is a bit like that favourite woolly jumper that you’re loathe to put away when the weather gets warmer. It works around this time of year but has an expiry date of sorts. We’ve watched the site over the seasons and using Santa in the logo has been a bit limiting with the overall design. That said, how it looks doesn’t really matter, it’s the game play and promotions that are important!

Costa Bingo Drops The C Bomb!

Thursday, Oct. 27th 2016 7:40 AM

Halloween is just under a week away now and we’ve seen an impressive array of themed promotions from a variety of different sites over the month. However, whilst we’re dropping words like ‘spooktacular’ into our content, Costa Bingo has been dropping the C word into their promotional content this month.

No, they’ve not been using expletives to big up their current offer but Costa Bingo have, in October, made reference to Christmas already! We’ll let them off though because the reason seems valid enough. This site are offering three Christmas hampers as prizes in a special game at the end of the month and they want to ensure they are BEFORE the festive season rather than after.

Halifax Mecca Bingo Help Spreads Cheer To Children Of Local Hospital

Monday, Dec. 16th 2013 1:38 PM

Halifax Mecca Bingo is the second club in the chain (that we know of) to launch a Christmas gift tree, the first one being Dudley Mecca Bingo. The idea is the same, patrons of the club take a gift tag from the club’s Christmas tree, and go off shopping, then return the present with the tag.

The presents for children should be returned to the club by December the 20th, so that they can be delivered to Calderdale Hospital to be given out to children on the morning of Christmas Day. Even if you are not a bingo hall regular, but you do live in Halifax, it might be a good idea to pop along and sort out a present yourself, and maybe stay for a game of bingo.

Are Bingo Brands Saving For Christmas?

Saturday, Aug. 31st 2013 7:25 AM

Once upon a time it used to be that you could visit the big name brands like Wink, Foxy, 888Ladies etc. and find a whole plethora of interesting promotions. Of late we have noticed that the ‘great’ promotions that we have been used to are becoming less and less which made us ask the question ‘Are bingo brands saving for Christmas?’

The online bingo market place has changed a lot over the years – from the welcome bonus structures, to new software and of course, the introduction of free bingo 24/7 and advertising on television. All of this is great to attract the players through the doors but what has happened to player retention by the impressive promotions. Is it that we as players have higher expectations of the brands now?
