William Hill Launches New Multi-Play Bingo RoomsThe multi-play addition allows William Hill Bingo players to launch four games simultaneously for intense and uninterrupted gaming. The option is now available through the Variety Room and the software has been performing extremely well since its initial launch.
William Hill’s bingo site has upgraded their service offerings with a brand new set of multi-play rooms. The addition should prove welcome to members of the site and bingo fans in general, a fan base that has traditionally been known for their ability to multi-task while waiting for each call.
William Hill has also allowed for the concurrent games to host mini-games and chat options, a move that truly allows for some of the most absorbing online bingo gaming currently available. Thus far, steady traffic has not managed to slow down any of the features or the main bingo play itself. Industry observers have lauded Will Hill for their work, citing the service expansion as a great achievement and marker of exactly the kind of innovation that internet bingo should strive toward.
March 3rd saw the multi-play bingo rooms launch with excited players flocking toward the new and exciting style of internet gaming. During the first weeks of its opening, the multi-play option has been heavily used and extremely well received by a fan base enthusiastic for a more engrossing level of play.
Titan Hosts $1K PokerNews Qualifier for the WSOPOnline gaming site, Titan Poker, has announced plans to partner up with PokerNews in a series of events aimed at sending players to the upcoming 2009 World Series of Poker. While even qualifying buy-in spots can be far too expensive for the average player to afford, proving your skill in Titan Poker weekly tournaments may be just the right way to show how worthy you are to compete in the WSOP, regardless of bankroll size.
The partnered sites are hosting a $1000 WSOP Qualifier Freeroll through a sponsorship with affiliate/news site, PokerNews that will reward a first place prize of free access to the Titan Poker $535 WSOP online qualifying rounds. The remaining $465 will be distributed in cash to all other players to make up the rest of the pot but it can be easily predicted that the most action will centre on competition for the WSOP entry spot. Winning the Titan online qualifying will be no easy feat for the tournament champions but, if they’re able to do so, they’ll be heading to Las Vegas with one of the site’s rather hefty $13K prize package.
Users that have registered at Titan Poker through PokerNews are eligible to take part in the freeroll (and a chance to play in this year’s World Series of Poker). The $1000 WSOP Qualifier Freeroll will be hosted at Titan Poker weekly on Tuesdays at 6.45pm GMT throughout the entirety of the month of June.
Congratulations to Lucas Glover on winning the 2009 US Open Golf Championship from Bethpage Black Course in New York.
Lucas Glover said he hoped he would not "downgrade" the US Open title after his unlikely victory elevated him alongside the sport's most illustrious stars.
"I dreamed about it as a kid and pulled it off," said Glover, who came into the tournament ranked 71st in the world.
"It's an honour to be on the trophy with names such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods. I hope I don't downgrade it or anything."
Glover fought off a late charge from Phil Mickelson to win his first major.
Pre event favorite, Tiger Woods, finished in sixth on level par after a great last round of 69.

Day two at Bethpage saw American Lucas Glover surge into a one shot lead over Ricky Barnes.
Glover was six under overall after 13 holes of his second round when play was halted at 2024 local time (0124 BST) following Thursday's rain delay.
Barnes reached five under after nine, with Sweden's Peter Hanson and first-round leader Mike Weir at four under.
Tiger Woods will start his second round on Saturday 10 shots adrift.
The 14-time major champion completed a first-round 74 on Friday morning after only three hours' play was possible because of heavy rain and waterlogging on Thursday.
"I was right there where I needed to be, and two bad shots and a mud ball later, here we go and I'm at four over par," Woods said.
Looking forward to the Day 3 action from Bethpage.

The 2009 US Open Golf Championship started yesterday at Bethpage Black Course in New York.
The rain caused havoc and led to the days play being called off after only 3 hours and 16 minutes with the first group only reaching the 11th hole.
This will no doubt lead to a Monday finish for the 2009 US Open.
In the bad conditions, the current lead is shared by Jeff Brehaut, Johan Edfors, Andrew Parr and Ryan Spears, all at one under par.
Tournament favorite, Tiger Woods was one over par after 6 holes.

Littlewoods Bingo Launches New Bingo Roomth marks the release of Littlewoods brand new Bingo Ballroom game, a development eagerly anticipated and sure to be enjoyed by fans of the site or just the game itself. Littlewoods Bingo is aiming to satisfy the fans with not only new content but also a few choice prizes launched in celebration of their accomplishment.
The Bingo Ballroom should be incentive enough to get members and uninitiated bingo fans alike onto the site for some play but Littlewoods has decided to further increase their draw with a few extra perks. Declaring May 20th as Bargain Bingo Day, Littlewoods is offering up plenty of reasonably priced games (including a plethora of penny sessions that ultimately culminate in the 9pm £5,000 jackpot) in celebration of their work. Games will be stretched out for the entirety of the day, providing two hour chunks of free bingo sessions during breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and evening hours.
If you’ve missed out on Bargain Bingo Day then there’s no reason to worry — Littlewoods new Bingo Ballroom will continue to offer up free gaming for every registered member of the site with funds in their accounts. Users can log on to Littlewoods Bingo for six hours of complementary play each day while still enjoying the same opportunity for massive cash rewards that feature in pay-to-play rooms.
The 2009 US Open Golf Championships starts this week from Bethpage Black Course in New York State, USA.
Obviously, the favorite for this second Major of the Golfing calendar is Tiger Woods, especially after his historic win in 2008 with his damaged knee.
I am fancying Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington for the win although I will also have a bet on Tiger Woods as he is normally safe money, especially for a top three finish and the odds reflect this.

Ladbrokes Bingo will regularly increase the jackpot with an additional £1,000 while bumping the number of calls at the same time.
For example, users competing for the initial £50K will have to complete a full house within 33 calls while the next turn will see £5,100 awarded to the first user to achieve a full house within 34 calls. This increase to the jackpot and calls will continue occurring until a lucky winner takes the prize home.
The Cash Climber started on Monday, March 23rd with a large sum contributed by the site right off the bat. Now the competition will begin to heat up as site members flock to the Cash Climber games in attempts to win the massive jackpot as it continues to grow in size.
Gala Bingo Continues Partnership with Chartwell TechnologyMembers of the ever-popular Gala Bingo website will be pleased to note the latest move by the venerable gaming company as news of their contract with Chartwell Technology spreads throughout the online bingo industry. After three previous terms of business between the two internet giants, Chartwell and Gala are set to go for at least one more multi-year deal after renewing a development contract.
Chartwell Technology is one of the industry’s best regarded suppliers of internet gaming software and will soon be hard at work continuing maintenance and increasing the fan experience at Gala Bingo. The site’s Gaming Director for Gala Coral Group’s Remote Gambling Division, Daniel Phillips spoke to press regarding his company’s desire for consistency with the user experience. Signing on with Chartwell for the foreseeable future will continue the quality work done by the software developers while also ensuring that no dedicated fans will be lost such as would be likely to happen in the event of taking on a new development client.
We can expect to see more great work from the folks at Chartwell and the promise of the addition of new Gala Bingo titles and software options in the months and years to come. While fans watch Chartwell enter into their fourth consecutive term as Gala’s software client of choice they can rest easy knowing that the games and functionality they count on will be maintained until at least the contract ending date in 2012.
Virtue Fusion Becomes Rival to Globalcom Bingo SitesThe long reign of Globalcom powered bingo sites may be coming to an end now that networks supporting Virtue Fusion are beginning to show a massive boost in traffic and fan recommendation, thus breaking a power balance that has existed since the first explosion in online bingo popularity.
Virtue Fusion is the software company behind such popular services as Ladbrokes Bingo, Mecca Bingo, Crown Bingo and Minxy Bingo. These sites have all seen boosts in notoriety recently, mostly due to the great variety of game styles available through the Virtue software. While Globalcom clients (such as Foxy Bingo, Wink Bingo, 888 Ladies Bingo, Mirror Bingo and more) host impressive graphics and smooth game play the platform is currently able to host only two styles of play; 90 or 75 ball bingo.
Virtue Fusion programmers have countered this limitation by designing networks with a much larger set of options such as speed or pattern bingo and a large number of themed boards and game styles. When looking at such a large gap in gaming choices it is no wonder that more and more online bingo devotees are flocking to Virtue’s supporters.
With the industry reflecting such a pattern it is unlikely that it will be much longer before Globalcom makes a clear response. If the lacking programmers pick up the slack by designing new features and incorporating a larger variety of game styles then it won’t be long before bingo fans are able to enjoy a more comprehensive offering from their favourite Globalcom sites.
Full Tilt Online Poker Series Wraps Up
After an exciting series of games the eleventh edition of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series has finished up for this year. The tournament came to a close with Sunday’s Main Event, a $500+35 No Limit Hold ’Em game that saw one skilled player walk away with a new title under his belt.
The big winner of the 2009 Full Tilt Online Poker Series is Adam “csimmsux” Geyer who managed to come out on top of the tournament’s tough opponents, triumphing and receiving the grand prize.
Geyer played against a body of 5,287 registered players, making it all the way to a climatic showdown against “KAISERfknSOZE”. The two entered the Main Event’s final hands with a substantial chip-lead over the third place competitor while their own amounts were more evenly matched.
Geyer finished the showdown with $456,056.62 while KAISERfknSOZE took home $276,245.75. Third place at the Main Event went to “PartyPimp” who received $177,643.20, a considerable sum that still falls a long way short of the showdown pool.
The game finished after nearly thirteen hours of continuous play, proving that Geyer is a player who is able to hold his own in exhausting games of attrition. While Full Tilt had set a guaranteed prize pool of $2,500,000 for the FTOPS, the massive number of registrants eclipsed the amount to a substantial $2,643,500 by the series’ kick-off. Adam “csimmsux” Geyer’s victory is his third overall win at a Full Tilt Online Poker Series event.
Gala Launches the Gala Bingo Wizard
Although it may seem that there are precious few innovations still left in the game of bingo, Gala has found at least one method of increasing the fun possible from the popular pastime with the launch of their brand new Gala Bingo Wizard. The innovative technology has already been launched across the UK’s assortment of brick and mortar Gala Bingo halls to rave reviews and may set a new precedent for the typical style of bingo play.
The Gala Bingo Wizard is a touch-screen system that automates the traditional bingo playing process to a revolutionary degree. Instead of paper cards, daubers and a personalized caller, Gala Bingo Wizard system lets fans of the game sit down at a computer terminal to play from a variety of games without having to wait around for new sessions to begin or any other, slower processes. The addition of Wizard ATM machines add to the computerized version of bingo springing up at Gala Bingo clubs across Great Britain, allowing players to easily add funds to their bingo cards without having to actually retrieve cash from an outside source.
Gala Bingo move toward automated bingo is sure to divide fans of the game that will either embrace the drastic new style of play or find themselves missing the traditional pace and process of a bingo session. For now, interested players can look out for the Gala Bingo Wizard terminals throughout approximately forty Gala Bingo halls across the United Kingdom.
Wink Bingo Grabs Attention with Latest AdvertisementWink Bingo is making big waves with their most recent advertising spot; a Fred Astaire styled effort meant to depict the joy of a great bingo win. Using a bit of special effects and a lot of ingenuity, the advertisement is proving to be a hit with the British public as it begins to air this month across the United Kingdom.
The Wink Bingo advertisement is simple but extremely effective. It depicts a woman winning at bingo on her laptop before breaking out in a dance that has her moving across the walls and ceiling of the room, defying gravity through the apparent magic of a bingo victory. Wink Bingo set up a specially designed room for the filming of the ad with the help of effects company Artem. A trained dancer/actress was hired to perform a jubilant routine while balancing precariously against the room moving around her on a custom built, mechanical rig. Some post-production touches were added to increase the natural look of her movements but the foundation of the piece was all performed with authentic, physical efforts.
The spot was created by Spacebar Media, a relatively new company in the advertising industry. Spacebar took inspiration from a 1950s dance routine performed by Fred Astaire (the famous wall and ceiling dance) and took the idea into the 21st century with only a modest budget and some real creativity. The advertisement is entitled “Celebration” and is scheduled to run until the beginning of this June.
