Mecca Bingo Launch The #Meccarena

Tuesday, Jan. 9th 2018 7:56 AM

When it comes to adverts for online bingo, we have seen quite a few over the years. Some have really grabbed our attention, and others, bored us to tears. It would be fair to say that the ones that have gotten a thumbs up from us are those that have a great soundtrack. The old school Foxy adverts are classic examples using iconic tunes like We Are Family and You’re The One That I Want. Mecca Bingo are now on the list with their latest offering and if you have seen the advert already, you will know why!

The Mecca Bingo advert uses a parody of the 1983 song by Los Del Rio, Macarena, and it was this that had our attention the moment it could be heard playing went we went to the kitchen to make a cup of tea in the commercial break!

Mecca Bingo Cruises Starting Soon

Saturday, Dec. 16th 2017 7:45 AM

As many of you will know, we’re old school online bingo players and have been since the arrival of our favourite game on the Internet. This means we remember things like the Foxy Bingo cruises way back in 2008. We were quite shocked to read the claims by Mecca Bingo that a new venture they are running is the ‘world’s first bingo themed cruise’.

The Mecca Bingo cruises are not starting until February next year, and there are more details of them later in this article, but we first want to set the record straight. Foxy Bingo actually did the first ever themed bingo cruises back when their marketing team genuinely loved the brand.

Mecca Bingo Go Pet Friendly

Thursday, Dec. 17th 2015 7:10 AM

Poor old Mecca Bingo, they’re having a bit of a time of it recently. Firstly they have to forfeit just under a million pounds in profit following a ruling in a court case and then, as if that wasn’t enough, they have to make changes to their Christmas commercial. This won’t have cost a million, but it wouldn’t have been cheap!

We’ll skim over the first part of the story, it’s interesting if you’re in the industry, but as players, we’re more interested in the Christmas commercial story. You may have seen the advert on television recently and might not even have noticed the massive faux pas by Mecca Bingo (we certainly didn’t until we took to Twitter) so let us shed some light on things….

Mecca’s Twerking Cactus Proves Us Wrong

Friday, May. 22nd 2015 7:18 AM

Now we try and have pretty informed opinions here at Playing Bingo but even we’re the first to admit when we have got something wrong. When Mecca Bingo’s twerking cactus hit our screens in an ad campaign for the brand we were the first to say it was a lousy idea and all just a little bit silly!

But as the younger generations know, random sells and clearly Mecca Bingo knew it too because they’ve just announced that their digital profits are up 18% and they are crediting the cactus for the success!
