Neighbours and Home and Away were always a main stay of early evening TV when we were kids. We have fond memories of coming home from college and lolloping in the chair to catch up with the latest happenings with the likes of Harold and Madge and Scott and Charlene. However, both Aussie soap casts have changed since then but they both still remain popular in the UK.
It’s no surprise then to hear that Gala Bingo have just secured a deal with Channel 5 to sponsor both of these Aussie soaps! This means that over the coming weeks, if you watch the shows, then you’ll see the popular online and retail brand in the commercial breaks.
Australian Calls For Gala Bingo
In the idents, the bumpers that you see before and after the commercial break for Neighbours and Home and Away, there will be an Australian bingo caller focusing on the ‘Play Happy’ strapline for Gala Bingo.
The callers brings certain changes to the bingo calls for this quick clips and they include ‘Koala in a tree’ for the number three and ‘Two sausages on the barbie’ for the number 11.
We’ll be watching out for the new sponsorship idents, will you?
Australian Themed Promotion From Gala Bingo?
We’re hoping that at some point the site introduces themed bingo rooms for the both the Aussie soaps and better still, a themed promotion with a trip to Australia as the top prize!
Wouldn’t it be great, if like when they launched Coronation Street Bingo and Emmerdale Bingo, that the site chose to offer players the chance to win a tour of the soap sets down under?
How many of us would be heading over to the site pretty sharpish to get involved?
