Kristina Rihanoff Does The Meccarena

Sunday, Feb. 18th 2018 7:08 AM

Mecca Bingo are really pushing the proverbial boat out with their Meccarena campaign and whilst the advert can still be seen on the small screen, they’ve now rolled out a follow up campaign that includes Kristina Rihanoff and three other ‘celebrities’.  Kristina is a world finalist ballroom dancer, instructor, author and choreographer. It’s the latter that sees her in a role with Mecca Bingo and she tries to teach the three celebs the Meccarena.

The three trying to learn the dance moves for Mecca Bingo are Simon Webbe from Blue, Jordan Davies from Ibiza Weekender on ITV2 and Dean Fagan who played Luke Britton in Coronation Street. It’s only Simon Webbe that we actually recognised!

New Advert From Wink Bingo

Sunday, Feb. 11th 2018 7:49 AM

It was only at the end of January that we reported on the new look at Wink Bingo and the additional feature of Wink Rewards as part of the welcome package. What we hadn’t noticed at the time was that the changes were complemented, and advertised, with a new commercial from the brand too.

What came first though? The site design or the advert? Recipe are the marketing agency behind the new marketing campaign from Wink Bingo. The company have been involved with advertising for Nurofen, Coca Cola, aviscon, Schweppes, Birds Eye, Veet and even 888 (both casino and sport). Considering the latter, we’re not surprised to learn that new commercial was created by this agency.

Betfred Bingo Advert On TV

Thursday, Jan. 4th 2018 7:57 AM

Whilst Betfred is a well-known name in sports-betting, the bingo has always been a little lacking in the promotional department in our opinion. However, that appears to have changed with a recent relaunch of the product with a new look and more exciting promotional offers.

When the Betfred Bingo site makeover took place [read more here] there was more on offer than a new design and better site navigation. Along with the aesthetic changes came some new promotions and shortly after, a new advertising campaign on the small screen. But does the new advert do the site justice?

Do The #Meccarena At Mecca Bingo

Tuesday, Jan. 2nd 2018 7:16 AM

Over the years we have seen quite a few great adverts from various bingo sites, some have been real head turners too. Mecca Bingo are the latest to turn out a commercial that had us looking back at the screen in the advert break! The reason was simple – it wasn’t because it was a bingo advert, because on hearing it you wouldn’t know, it was because it featured a famous party dance tune – the Macarena.

However, Mecca Bingo have renamed the tune to Meccarena and the song parodied to suit the commercial. It’s fun, it gets the message across and currently, it’s a personal favourite in the online bingo advert stakes.

Thursday, Oct. 19th 2017 4:16 AM

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here is one of the biggest shows on television and will soon be returning to our screens for a seventeenth season. Ant and Dec will be returning to the host the show and no doubt the Bushtucker Trials will be as gut-wrenching as ever. One thing that has changed though it that the show has an exciting new sponsor – Tombola!

Sunderland based Tombola Arcade (Tombola Bingo‘s sister site) will be sponsoring the show when it returns to out screens later this year. No figures have been mentioned yet, but the deal is said to be worth around £2 million a year which is what previous sponsor Aunt Bessie paid as part of a similar deal back in 2015.
