Weather Report Commercial From Jackpotjoy

Posted by: BingoGal - Tuesday, Nov. 8th 2016 7:37 AM

Barbara Windsor is back on our screens but don’t worry, Peggy Mitchell hasn’t done a Bobby Ewing, she’s back as the Queen of Bingo in the latest Jackpotjoy commercial. There’s no blue balls to be playing with in this advert though, in fact, if we are completely honest, Barbara seems a bit wooden!

We’ve always been big fans of the Queen of Bingo from Jackpotjoy, she certainly enhances the player connection, but in this advert it just doesn’t flow. Could it be that she needs to hang up her bejewelled dress and hand her bingo tiara to another celeb? That said, the commercial isn’t nearly as bad as some that we have seen over the years from other sites!

The New Advert From Jackpotjoy

The commercial starts in much the same way as a normal TV news reel would. There’s the now infamous blue ball with Breaking News emblazoned across it and then we are taken to a weather map that Barbara Windsor is stood in front of in all her Jackpotjoy finery.

She welcomes you the weather report for the brand and as she gestures towards the map of the UK various blue appear up and down the country. Some of these show winners faces and the amount they have won. The Queen of Bingo refers to ‘heavy downpours of jackpots’ before asking if you fancy being the next big winner.

Throughout the 26 second advert the current bonus offer is shown, deposit £10 and get £25 free play, along with a snippet of the terms and conditions of the offer.

It’s one commercial that we don’t think the Advertising Standards Authority is going to have an issue with but does it do enough to attract the viewers attention?

Take a look at the clip below and decide for yourself. This commercial for wasn’t a head turner for us.
