Gamesys Bonus Changes And Caesars Bingo Closing

Saturday, Mar. 3rd 2018 7:10 AM

There has been quite a bit of news breaking of late from the Gamesys camp and one interesting story is of the impending closure of Ceasars Bingo. We were informed of the closure by email and the wording was a little ambiguous – ‘CAESARS Bingo will no longer be operated by Entertaining Play Limited, which means that the site will be shut down’.

Does this mean that Caesars Bingo may re-appear in the future but on a different platform or simply that the owners no longer see any value in the brand? We can’t be sure but what we do know is that the site will close on Tuesday 27th March.

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.

Bad Press For Jackpot Joy

Friday, Sep. 18th 2015 7:24 AM

Over the years, a number of online bingo sites have been the victims of bad press and more often than not, through circumstances beyond their control. Jackpot Joy is one such brand and recently they’ve once again made the tabloids but not with a great advertising campaign, but as a brand named in a deception case in Sheffield.

Katryn (Katrina) Jones, a 53 year old con woman, fiddled a whopping half a million pounds from a variety of sources over the years and was recently jailed for six years after pleading guilty to no less than 19 charges of fraud! Of the money that she swindled from people, she has to pay back just £1 and this is where the name Jackpot Joy was banded about.

You may well know that Jackpot Joy have a unique bingo game themed around the popular ITV dating show, Take Me Out. What you may not know that on Saturday night bingo was used by Paddy McGuinness to introduce the single men who are the main focus of the show.

Bingo Friendzy

Bingo Friendzy
Closed

When Bingo Friendzy launched in August 2012 we were one of many sites to debate whether real money bingo on Facebook was going to catch on. We wondered why an online bingo player would choose Facebook over your traditional Internet gaming option and asked if other sites were set to follow suit. You can read the original article here.

The only other brand to follow suit was Bingo Appy, a product launched by 888 and this product is still available. However, the same cannot be said of Bingo Friendzy as on Wednesday we received an email from Profitable Play and Bingo Friendzy telling us that it was the last day in which we could use any funds remaining in our account.
