Tombola Sponsors I’m A Celebrity

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.

Paddy McGuinness Fronts New Jackpot Joy Ad

Thursday, Sep. 28th 2017 7:49 AM

Since Barbara Windsor became the Queen of Bingo and took the lead in the Jackpot Joy commercials we have seen some impressive adverts from the brand. We’ve also seen some mickey takes, remember her pieing Foxy in the face? On 14th September the best of the commercials was released in our opinion, and the baton of the face of Jackpot Joy was passed to Paddy McGuinness.

We’re not yet sure if this is a permanent change but we’re certainly all for being greeted by the host of Take Me Out every time we visit Jackpot Joy. He’s definitely eye candy for this online bingo player! Not only is he good to look at, Paddy McGuinness is great to watch in the new advert for this award winning bingo site.

Farewell Furry Foxy Friend

Where's The FoxWhere Has The
Fox Gone?

Since Foxy Bingo first launched their commercials on television many moons ago, their mascot has been marmite for many viewers. We’re on the side of love and whilst he has some rather strange incarnations over the years, the purple suited woodland fella was synonymous with the brand. We always used to be really excited at the prospect of a new Foxy commercial, especially after the ‘We Are Family’ offering from 2008!

In 2005, yes TWELVE years ago, we first saw Foxy strutt onto our screens and if we’re honest, he came across as a bit of a lech. He’d stroll past women at bus stops and in the park, watch them in coffee shops and the hairdressers and just look like he was being a nuisance. But over the years, he became more debonair and gathered quite the following to make Foxy one of the best known bingo brands.

Aussie Soaps Sponsored By Gala Bingo

Thursday, Aug. 31st 2017 7:49 AM

Gala Bingo are regulars in the commercial breaks of many of our favourites shows but now they are going to be the name that you see in the adverts for popular Australian soaps Home And Away and Neighbours too. Recently they signed a sponsorship deal with Channel 5 and if you are fans of these soaps, you’ll see the well-known brand appearing and the start and finish of the commercial breaks.

It’s not the first, and most certainly won’t be the last time that we see Gala Bingo advertising their wares on the small screen but the bumper idents for the commercial break for Home And Away and Neighbours will boast an Aussie accent. The theme is still ‘Play Happy’ but we see a more Australian style bingo call used.

Gala Bingo Slapped With An Advert Ban

Thursday, Jun. 22nd 2017 7:46 AM

When any online bingo brand chooses to advertise their wares on television, they are required to adhere to a number of strict rules. These are laid out in the UK Code of Broadcast Advertising (BCAP Code). This code is applied to all adverts and over the years, many bingo sites have fallen foul of the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for breaching a number of different codes. Recently it was the turn of Gala Bingo and an advert for a promotion that focused on The Chase bingo at their site.

In this instance, the one complaint that was received about the Gala Bingo advert was focused on the small print that appeared on the screen. The complainant felt that it was illeligible and the ASA agreed which resulted in the complaint being upheld, and the advert not to be shown again in its current form.
