Weather Report Commercial From Jackpotjoy

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!

It’s All About The Sevens For Sky Bingo

Tuesday, Nov. 1st 2016 7:32 AM

Sky Bingo are back advertising their wares on the small screen with a brand new commercial but it doesn’t follow the usual path of your average advert for online bingo. Throughout the 30 second commercial, at least the one we have seen on YouTube, there is no mention of the welcome offer that the brand has for new players.

This is practically unheard of, all brands use media marketing as a way to get the impressive ‘Deposit X amount, get XX amount to play with’ message. Not Sky Bingo, not from what we have seen at least.

Having A Ball Is Back At Sun Bingo

Sunday, Oct. 23rd 2016 7:56 AM

Having A Ball was (and now is again) the live interactive showbiz quiz that is popular with many players at Sun Bingo. When the site was planning its migration from Gamesys to Virtue Fusion, the feature went off air for a while, and lost Brain Dowling as a co-host. However, now it is back and joining Rustie Lee and Jean Martin is Chico and Chris Hopkins.

Having A Ball is back every Friday at Sun Bingo and the next show is on Friday 28th October from 9pm until 10pm. There are seven quiz rounds during the show and from what we have seen, it’s certainly a whole lot of fun! Just head to the Candy Room to play along.

Louise Redknapp Stars In Mecca Bingo Advert

Tuesday, Oct. 11th 2016 7:07 AM

Over the years we have seen a number of different celebrities become the face of many online bingo sites. Katie Price has fronted the Foxy campaign, Vic Reeves donned a dress for the 888 Ladies ad and Peter Andre has been involved with Wink Bingo, and these are just a few of the examples we could have rolled out. Today we can tell you that the latest to front a marketing campaign for an online bingo brand is Louise Redknapp.

For those of you who may be a little young to know who Louise Redknapp is, and don’t recognise her face in the Mecca Bingo commercial, she used to be in a band called Eternal in the 90’s. She’s also married to a former England, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs footballer called Jamie Redknapp.

Johnny Vegas Brings Sunny To Life At Costa Bingo

Tuesday, Jun. 28th 2016 7:59 AM

It’s been a while since we have seen a new advert from any of the many bingo sites available on the Internet but at the beginning of the month we saw Costa Bingo launch a couple of short adverts on the small screen. Television viewers are no able to hear the dulcet tones of Johnny Vegas come from the animated mouth of Sunny, the brand’s mascot.

To be honest, we were really excited when Costa Bingo announced at the end of May that Johnny Vegas was to be involved in their commercials but the adverts have been a massive anticlimax for us. We were expecting something similar to the Mel B adverts where she was a giant strolling through London promoting the big jackpots, instead, we have been given animated bingo balls.
