Ladbrokes Bingo Pays Out Enormous Jackpot to British Grandmother

                Popular online bingo network, Ladbrokes Bingo, has just changed one of its players lives by awarding them with a fantastic cash prize. The lucky site member is taking home close to £67,000 after having played a few bingo rounds on a sleepless night.
                The winner is a sixty-eight year old woman named Alison Bradbury. Bradbury, a grandmother to nine children, sat down to play a few games at Ladbrokes Bingo on a Friday night after being unable to sleep and eventually logged off for the night thinking that she had managed to win £120 at the site. It wasn't until nearly a full day later that Bradbury received a phone call from Ladbrokes, informing her that one of her games, staked with only five pence, had actually won her a prize of £66,508. Bradbury told press that she had initially thought the call from Ladbrokes had come in "because there was a problem with [her] account." She went on to say that, since she is still recovering from a years-old triple bypass surgery, she "had to get [her] daughter to speak to them" to avoid giving herself too much of a shock.  
                When interviewed by a local County Durham paper, Bradbury said that she plans to be pragmatic with her winnings. Aside from saving the bulk of the money, Alison Bradbury told the news that she would like to buy one of her grandsons a new phone for his birthday and help her husband Ken retire earlier than expected.

Sky Bingo Reveals New Mobile Gaming App

                The growing importance of mobile play in the online gambling industry means that no company can afford to fall behind in developing on-the-go versions of their sites. The most recent gaming network to recognize this by offering up a mobile app for its customers is Sky Bingo.
                The brand new Sky Bingo application was created in partnership with well-known software developer Playtech and is already available for download for members of the site. Sky and Playtech have launched the online bingo app with a total of eleven rooms and a host of mobile-specific features. The app can be run on any iOS-enabled device and may be logged into using the same account information a Sky Bingo user has already set up for the desktop version of the platform.

A lucky Virgin Bingo player has struck it rich thanks to a stroke of good fortune while playing online at her favourite gaming destination. Playing the website, the user was able to hit the jackpot on a progressive slot that had been building for some time, ultimately taking home over £50,000.

The Virgin Bingo player, using the online handle, “Milllane”, won a total of £55,000 in cash. The money was awarded through the Snow Queen Magic slot game, a progressive jackpot that had been snowballing in value for some time before the lucky user won the cash.

Milllane” was able to bring up five matching Snow Queen symbols on one of the slot’s win lines in order to qualify as a winner. She was playing ten pence stakes and received only ten percent of the total money that had amounted at the progressive jackpot. Those players that are able to win the entire, enormous Snow Queen Magic prize must have placed a maximum, one pound bet per spin.

The fortunate winner had only played online bingo for about two years when she was awarded the sizable jackpot. “Milllane” told that she plans to use the unexpected windfall to take a vacation and renovate her kitchen.

Foxy Bingo Celebrates Harry Potter Release with New Giveaway

As cinemas across the world pack with excited Harry Potter fans ready to watch the sixth instalment of the beloved book and film franchise Foxy Bingo is out to capitalise on the wizarding frenzy with a special set of promotional offerings.

Foxy Bingo has set up a full week of Potter themed gameplay, offering cheap stakes on sets of entertaining prizes for members of the venerable gaming site. Each day of the week is set up with a full line-up of rewards for fans of the films and books with Wednesday acting as the entirely Harry Potter-centred giveaway.

The pre-purchase game will offer various tiers of magical rewards: a one line win provides the player in question with two tickets to a local cinema for a screening of “The Half-Blood Prince”, a two line win is worth four free tickets and a copy of one of J.K. Rowling’s bestselling novels and a full house win carries the illustrious grand prize of an one night stay in a four-star London hotel for two, paid travel expenses to the city and two free tickets to the new Harry Potter film.

With the rest of the week touting cash jackpot guarantees from £500 to £10,000 (and stakes as low as 5p) there are still plenty of other exciting games to take part in at Foxy Bingo as well. For now however, the Harry Potter mania carrying over to the site is sure to attract plenty of attention.

Wink Bingo Increase Free Bingo Play

The free bingo trend is quickly sweeping the industry, making it increasingly necessary for the biggest of companies to follow suit and offer a larger variety of complementary play. One of the pioneers in this movement, Wink Bingo, has already proved themselves quite capable of rewarding devoted members of their site with no-cost play, and now, they’ve set out to offer even more in this vein.

Wink Bingo has set up a regular addition to their usual fare by providing several, reoccurring weekly game rooms wherein players can sit down to take part in a game and still enjoy the chance to win big without anteing up a single penny. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday are now “free bingo days” as Wink Bingo opens the doors to several rooms (the 75 Ball Birthday Suit Bingo Room and the 90 Ball Free ‘n’ Easy Bingo Room) for no-money play between 6pm and 8pm. These new time slots join the already established free play games running at the site to make Wink Bingo into what is quite probably the premier complementary gaming site amoung the big players in the industry.

The decision to create even more free gaming opportunities by Wink Bingo shows an understanding and embracing of the constantly changing industry and a movement that other sites would be remiss to lag behind in. With member reward precedents being increased so greatly we can surely expect to see even more initiatives being undertaken by competing online companies in the near future.

Virgin Bingo Offer a Free Gift Giveaway

Last weekend saw Virgin Bingo players rewarded with a few chances at some complementary prizes as a part of the overwhelming new trend of free bingo sweeping the online industry. Not wishing to fall behind on the times, Virgin Vie partnered up with the online gaming network to secure a few choice prizes for devotees of the site.

The giveaway was open to all members of the site that had purchased £50 or greater in bingo tickets between Wednesday, 15
th July and the evening of Sunday, 19th July. The money did not require a straightforward £50 deposit but only the purchase of tickets, meaning that a player who had won cash in a bingo game and used it to buy up entrance to other games would still be eligible for the offered prizes. The giveaways were picked from two summer-themed options: either a Sunshine Self-Tanning Moisturizing Spray or Sun Goddess Body Crackle. Members of the site that qualified for the gifts were mailed one of the two products at the giveaway period’s end on Sunday night.

Virgin Bingo’s take on the free bingo trend was quite a bit different from those competing efforts offered up by other UK brands such as Foxy or Wink Bingo but the effect was solid enough to stir up some healthy traffic for the network. While the company still seems to be resisting the move toward a greater number of no-cost bingo games, the guarantee of a few excellent prizes for purchasing tickets from the site is a novel concept just the same.

Bingo Day Expands Service for Italian and Spanish Speakers

Online bingo network, Bingo Day has announced the expansion of language support and the inclusion of translation services which will allow Italian and Spanish speakers to play at the site entirely in their native tongues. The successful bingo site has done well in the past with a solid array of games, deposit bonuses, member rewards and regular promotions, and now, the addition of Italian and Spanish access should stretch the popularity of the service even further.

Bingo Day spoke to press about their recent work and decision to offer their services in two new languages, detailing their recognition of the importance of community-focused aspects of bingo sites, something that has been traditionally hindered by forcing users to communicate in non-native languages. Now the site has opened up its doors to demographics they may have otherwise missed out on. All of Bingo Day’s Flash games will be fully translated alongside chat options and a staff of fluent Italian and Spanish speaking customer support staff to ensure a smooth experience.

The expansion of language support for any online gaming site has traditionally been met with a degree of success as new markets begin to open up for the business in those regions where the given languages are found. Bingo Day should prove no different as Italian and Spanish speakers begin to flock to the site now in order to fulfill their
bingo playing needs.

Wink Bingo New Promotion

Wink Bingo Wants to Give Players a Break in New Promo

A new month means a slew of new promotions from online gaming companies and Wink Bingo looks to be no exception as they get set to pull in plenty of traffic with their May line-up of rewards. After sparing no expense with the previous two month’s Mini Cooper and Tiffany diamond rewards, Wink is looking to shift gears a little bit and offer up something quite different.

The aforementioned Winktastic bonus for May, the ‘Wink Says Take a Break’ promotion should ensure a lot of interest in the weeks to come. Players at the popular bingo network will compete for the chance to win £3,000 in vacation money, a great prize considering the difficulty that many are having taking any time off from the daily grind during the economic recession. While Wink has previously awarded glittering gems, videogames and other flashy swag, May has now been set as the month for bingo players to go all out toward earning a little time off from the usual nine to five drag.

Aside from the main attraction itself, Wink Bingo has also lined up a great series of auxiliary rewards for devoted fans of the network. Regular games such as the Wink and Pound sign pattern game pump out extra Winktastic points (which can be used for anything from promotions to free merchandise and more) alongside a host of other great bingo-themed games and rewards. 

Crown Bingo Pays Out Largest Jackpot to Date

Crown Bingo Pays Out Largest Jackpot to Date

Online bingo giant, Crown Bingo has recently awarded its largest jackpot to date with the conclusion of a particularly large (and lucky) slot game won by Bristol player, Glen Johnson. With the receipt of the huge sum of money, Crown and Johnson have created one of the most impressive good-luck stories to come out of the gambling world in quite some time, drawing plenty of attention and publicity for both parties.

Johnson won his prize at Crown’s Lucky Ladies 88 slot game last month and managed to take home a staggering
£240,561 jackpot. The slot was played with only a £2 bet, an amount that increased incredibly as Johnson became the winner of a mounting progressive jackpot. Now Crown has provided Glen and his wife with the sum in a time of particularly dire circumstances. Both the winner and his wife suffer from disabilities that hinder their ability to properly care for their young children. A spinal problem prevents Johnson from being able to share his burden of household chores, an issue that became further exasperated by his wife’s cancer scare around the time of his big jackpot win.

Now Johnson and his wife will be able to purchase mobility equipment, a factor that will greatly improve their ability to care for, and spend quality time, with their children. Glen Johnson had only been a member at Crown Bingo for a little over a week when he sat down to play the slot game of his life.

Chris Parker Signs on With Gala Bingo

Chris Parker Signs on With Gala Bingo

September continues to be a landmark month for Gala Bingo as they offer up great promotions, special events and now, a new addition to their line-up of celebrity guests.
Chris Parker, the actor that rose to fame as part of the Eastenders cast has announced plans to join on with Gala in the launch of its brand new Gala Bingo TV show, “Soap Star Bingo Show”.

Parker may have put his days playing Eastenders star Spencer Moon behind him but his celebrity should be enough of a reason for many interested viewers to tune into “Soap Star Bingo Show” this month.

Foxy Bingo Searches for Next Dreamboy this Ladies Day

Foxy Bingo Searches for Next Dreamboy this Ladies Day

We’ve already provided details on the big events planned by Foxy Bingo in their effort to celebrate National Ladies Day (June 19
th) but now the network has revealed even larger plans to go toward their party with the announcement of a search for the next addition to the Dreamboys team.

National Ladies Day will heat up even further with the Foxy-sponsored search for the next Dreamboy, providing chances for a hopeful young man and, of course, some extra entertainment for the ladies in attendance on June 19th. Each of the twenty participating Liquid nightclubs will host performances as well as the chance for women in the region to nominate their partner as the next Dreamboy. Three men from each of the included regions of the Ladies Day event will be chosen to participate in the show and perform with the popular group onstage at a Liquid venue.

Foxy Bingo will even be sponsoring one lucky fellow with the opportunity to prove his worth as a Dreamboy and sign on to the group with a twelve month contract. This latest move should help to ensure that Foxy Bingo’s National Ladies Day celebration makes for a fantastic party and an even more successful event. There are chances to win entry to the June party still on at Foxy Bingo along with tickets for sale at the website for between £5 and £7.

Gala Bingo Announces Closure of Additional Clubs

Gala Bingo Announces Closure of Additional Clubs

The last few years have seen numerous brick-and-mortar bingo clubs being forced to close their doors while businesses focus more on the increasingly profitable online renditions of their services. Perhaps the most popular of land-based bingo groups, Gala Coral, is now continuing forward with this trend in announcing the closure of even more clubs across the UK.

The company recently spoke to British press regarding plans to close six clubs in the near future while also considering selling off another 40 to 50 of their halls. The move would make approximately 200 positions at the club unnecessary and will lead to the loss of a staggering number of jobs across the nation. Gala Bingo representatives detailed the problem of continuing to operate land-based bingo halls in a financial climate that barely creates any profits from their existence. With borrowed operation funds reaching almost £8 billion even Gala, the largest bingo corporation in the UK, has been forced to make tough choices in regard to the historically profitable halls.

Numerous problems have contributed to the closure of so many brick-and-mortar
bingo clubs but perhaps the most damaging has been the continued loss of revenue caused by the enactment of smoking bans in the United Kingdom. With the continuation of these issues we can expect Gala Coral to carry on in shutting down it’s previously booming clubs and refocus efforts to the growing business of online efforts such as Gala Bingo.

Foxy Bingo Spice up Gameplay with Site Revamp

Wink Bingo Embrace Social Networking

Wink Bingo Embrace Social Networking

Not being strangers to internet trends, Wink Bingo has embraced the massively influential movement of social networking as their newest platform for gaining publicity with their site. After launching fan pages and other interactive features through a Facebook profile Wink has now gone a few steps further, ensuring continued interest through social networking promos.

Little O promotion is the first instance of this wider plan and is a marketing tactic intended to drum up interest for the Winktastic Big O £250,000 jackpot game set to take place on 13th September. Using a Facebook fan page Wink Bingo has managed to combine information with a tie-in contest in order to draw the most possible publicity from the already exciting jackpot.

The Little O promotion saw trivia questions posted on the Wink Bingo fan page. Fans answered the question via email and Wink awarded 10 free tickets to the Big O game to the first correct answer (and every tenth correct answer afterward until a limit of 100 was reached). The large number of fans added to the profile clearly demonstrates the success of such a innovative promotion.

The Little O fan page is further supplemented with other incentives as well, including giveaways like 5,000 loyalty points for every 50
th fan subscribed to the profile. Wink Bingo’s decision to factor popular social networking services such as Facebook into their marketing plans demonstrates an intelligent recognition of new media and progressive advertising.

Users of the Ladbrokes Bingo site were able to compete for the money through both Saturday and Sunday night, trying to be the lucky winners of the £6,000 total up for grabs at Ladbrokes Bingo.

The lounge bingo room held two games on each evening of the weekend, holding winning opportunities from 8-9pm and 9-10pm. Players who were fortunate enough to be playing in the right room during the awarding of the ‘Stash of Cash’ were able to win a share of the money. The cash was allocated to those bingo rooms that were able to call a win in the least amount of time possible where it was then doled out in shared amounts set at either £1,000 or £5,000.   

Ladbrokes Bingo was able to pack the site on both Saturday and Sunday night, awarding the full prize amount and creating quite a few happy players in the process.

The ‘Stash of Cash’ weekend promo proved a great hit for the online bingo hall and should only be the tip of the rewards iceberg as the site gears up for July and a new month of over-the-top prize events.

Wink Bingo Launches Progressive Jackpot with Moneyball

Wink Bingo Launches Progressive Jackpot with Moneyball

It seems that bingo companies can’t keep up in the industry anymore without offering a progressive jackpot to help bring players to their sites for more than just the usual game of bingo itself. Wink Bingo is no exception with the release of their new gameplay title,
Moneyball, a fresh addition to the site that is set to substantially increase the excitement available every night at the network.

The new Wink Bingo progressive jackpot is a 75-ball game that takes an unusual twist on the traditional layout of these jackpots, attaching its pattern to regularly scheduled bingo games rather than existing as an entirely separate option.

Wink Bingo Players can wait to run into the Moneyball at the hangout bingo room from 7pm to midnight. The pattern will show up three times each hour and make members cross their fingers to catch all 12 required numbers during 34 calls. If not won the jackpot continues into the next game, rolling back to £250 even after it’s been awarded and assuring that no award is too small to make the luck worthwhile.

Wink Bingo Moneyball may end up being the perfect method for drawing new traffic to Wink Bingo while still keeping existing fans happy. The innovative new game certainly offers enough incentive to get players to log on to regular games during the evening hours and there is always the (at least) £100 progressive jackpot available at every 90-ball game to add to the successful network.

Gala Bingo Continues Partnership with Chartwell Technology

Gala Bingo Continues Partnership with Chartwell Technology

Members 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.

Virtue Fusion Becomes Rival to Globalcom Bingo Sites

Virtue Fusion Becomes Rival to Globalcom Bingo Sites

The 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.

Gala Launches the Gala Bingo Wizard

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 Advertisement

Wink Bingo Grabs Attention with Latest Advertisement

Wink 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.

Gala Launches Spring Promotion

Gala Launches Spring Promotion

Charlie Dimmock-guided transformation valued at £2,000. All players need to do to qualify for the prize is deposit money into their account during the promotional period.

This means that frequent play at Gala Bingo throughout May could end up being your ticket to a beautiful garden just in time for your friend’s envy this summer.

Gala Bingo has also set up the Windicate promotion for players with fine gardens or little interest in the Makeover award. The system has players creating a team with five friends acting as “win buddies” and playing for a collective full house. Windicate awards 50p to each member of the team when a full house is won and is available nightly between 7pm and 11pm. You can accept five invitations to other Windicate teams as well, meaning that you could be winning money for your Gala account without even playing.

Wink Bingo’s “Win a Mini Cooper” promotion has come to a close with one lucky player driving away from the event with a brand new set of wheels. The contest began late in 2008 and has just finished, hosting a wealth of great stories and a dramatic series of events leading up to its conclusion.

Joanne Kane, a mother of two from Werneth, Oldham in Lancashire came out the winner of the fantastic prize and is now the proud owner of a brand new BMW Mini Cooper valued at £16,000. Kane’s win couldn’t have come at a better time — the Lancashire mum had recently lost her job before her car gave out as well. She had taken to riding a bike, being forced to do so due to a lack of steady income. Kane’s award wasn’t easy to come by however. After the “Win a Mini Cooper” bingo game played on January 1st, 2009, Kane was part of Wink’s first-ever draw as she called a full house in the same number of turns as Swindon in Wiltshire competitor, Christine. The two women entered lucky numbers for the showdown and Kane won, using her children’s birthdates along with the (decidedly fitting) date she passed her driving test.

It’s certainly one of the most interesting stories to come out of the bingo world in some time and is packed with some great details and action. Joanne Kane could hardly have deserved her prize more however. She is now receiving some well-deserved publicity in Wink Bingo’s newest viral advertisement currently running on the popular gaming site.

Gala Bingo Find their Nectar Millionaire

After months of suspense and excitement for the online bingo community at Gala Bingo, the search for the next Nectar Millionaire has come to a conclusion with the announcement of the contest’s winner; a primary school dinner lady from Dartmouth in Devon named Joan Scales. The lucky lady is now able to enjoy spending the Nectar points along with her family, a sum that equals roughly £1 million in value.

Joan will be able to shop at a wide variety of different UK stores using her reward and can redeem the points for almost anything, from clothing to wine or fabulous travel vacations. She was entered into the Gala Bingo tournament during the original promotional period (between November 24th and December 24th of 2008) by playing Gala Bingo games often enough to accumulate many entries into the contest. Joan told press that she and her family has already started to spend the prize on everyday items and are planning to use more of the sum toward future luxuries including a trip to Spain and home redecorating.

There’s no word yet on whether or not Gala Bingo will offer up another Nectar Millionaire contest such as the one held at the very end of last year. Just the same, Gala Bingo players will still be able to gather Nectar points (at the rate of 2 points per every £1 spent on purchasing bingo tickets) as part of the two company’s ongoing partnership.

Gala and Presidential Mum Win Big with Mrs Obama’s Game

Not to be outdone by the inauguration of her immensely famous relation, Kezia Obama, stepmother to the new American President, has launched her very own bingo site in conjunction with Gala Coral. “Mrs Obama’s Game” recently closed its doors after fundraising for charity through an offshoot of Gala Bingo’s main site, working well as an event that intended to capitalize on Barack Obama’s presidency in an immensely positive manner.

The promotion proved to be an excellent way to take advantage of Presidential fever and managed to succeed in raising a large amount of charity proceeds to the Sue Ryder Care foundation. After attending her stepson’s historic inauguration in Washington, Mrs. Obama was quick to return to her Berkshire, UK home and watch over the bingo events. An avid player and fan of the pastime, Kezia Obama partnered with Gala Coral to promote a series of games that allowed for 10p of every pound played to be donated to Sue Ryder Care.

The series was a massive success, raising approximately £10,000 over its one hour a day, ten day duration. Gala will match the amount for a total £20,000 donation to Sue Ryder Care and continues to work toward their goal of contributing £1 million to Sue Ryder by 2010. “Mrs Obama’s Game” ran from January 14th to the 23rd.

February at Ladbrokes Bingo promises to host a load of fantastic gaming and prize options for enthusiastic players and should ensure that regular fans feel a bit of love from their site of choice.

Regular bingo players orLadbrokes Bingo members should log on today to take a look at the variety of February promotions open for play.

Vic Reeves Ends Sponsorship of 888 Ladies

After a long history of acting as the celebrity face of 888 Ladies Bingo, Vic Reeves, has left the service. The popular bingo network is now without a famous representative and is in need of a replacement endorsement figure after the end of Reeves’ twelve-month 888 Ladies Bingo contract.

Fans of the site will be disappointed to see that Reeves has moved on from his previous place as the real-life mascot of 888 Ladies Bingo but many industry observers aren’t surprised. Most celebrity representatives have a short career with bingo companies, acting as mascots for only the brief period of time their contract affords. The site is still home to several other notable celebrities however and Reeves’ spot could very well be filled by ex-Eastenders star, Joe Swash who still maintains a significant presence at the network. While Vic Reeves provided a recognizable and humorous role as 888 Ladies Bingo advertising lynchpin, Swash has also acted as an important star for promotional events such as the recent Joe Swash Valentine’s Day competition that saw the celebrity share lunch with a lucky winner.

Reeves is not the only celebrity to vanish from their duties as the face of a bingo company. Foxy Bingo recently lost Jordan (Katie Price) around the same time that Sharon Osbourne left Gala behind. Alison Hammond at Crown Bingo now stands alone as one of the few celebrities still active at a promotional level for any of the major UK bingo services.

Big Bingo Promos at 888 Ladies Bingo

It’s a good time to be a member at 888 Ladies Bingo as the site continues to ramp up their promotions while maintaining their pre-existing, excellent incentives.

Many of the site’s most popular recurring events are still in place for fans to check out even as 888 Ladies Bingo adds on other, extensive bonuses. Perhaps the biggest of these is the end-of-month, guaranteed £8,888 bingo jackpot (taking place this month on Friday, February 27th). Players can sign onto the network and play a quick game for the opportunity to win the massive payout or take part in the half-hour chat before the game play itself beings, talking to others as they prepare for the big event. 888 Ladies Bingo also provides nightly £100 games (with minimum 10p stakes) alongside Wednesday evening £1,000 guarantees for a buy-in of only 50p per entry ticket.

There are a plethora of other exciting games to watch out for at 888 Ladies Bingo with new ones being added to the service almost every day. It’s well worth the time necessary for UK bingo enthusiasts to check out 888 Ladies Bingo’s upcoming promotions for their own interest.

Betfred Bingo Hosts Mother’s Day Promotion

Betfred Bingo is giving its users the chance to make this year’s Mother’s Day a truly memorable one with their upcoming promotion. The Mum of the Year 2009 Competition is almost about to launch from the site, providing bingo players with a community-centred chance at a great cash prize.

Players who have been active at the site before February 15th (and wagered at least £25) will be eligible for the 2009 Mother’s Day prize. Five qualifying Betfred Bingo members will be contacted via email regarding their entry into the special contest set to take be determined at the end of the month. Other users will then be able to view the contestants and vote on who they think most deserves the prize by participating in a process carried out in the community section of the site.

Betfred Bingo players will assess and vote on their favourite finalist through a chat room poll during the “free for all” bingo game hour on Friday, February 27th from 8 to 9pm. The member with the most votes will receive a £250 reward which will be deposited into their account upon the contest’s finish. Although Betfred Bingo’s Mum of the Year Competition takes place relatively far in advance of Mother’s Day actual March 22nd date this year, the contest should still help to spark a little excitement for bingo-playing families.

Wink Celebrates One Year Birthday with Special Promotion

The month of February marks the one year anniversary of Wink Bingo’s conception and rapid rise to the position of one of the world’s leading internet bingo halls. To celebrate their accomplishment over the last twelve months the company is sharing some of their success with their fans, offering up an incredibly low-entry game with a substantial and generous jackpot at stake.

Wink Bingo members will be able to take part in different promotional events being launched by the site during their full-month celebration. Aside from the previously reported, fantastic
Tiffany & Co. shopping spree, Wink, is also hosting a guaranteed £2,000 game with an unbelievably tiny, 1p entry fee. The game will be set up as a 90-Ball event with a maximum, 24p stake allowance. Winning one line awards players with £250 while two lines pay £750 and a full house carries a £1,000 prize. Although none are likely to hold as impressive a reward as the game above, Wink Bingo is also planning to line up several more one penny buy-ins at different times throughout the coming weeks.

Recent Study Shows Bingo is Good for the Elderly

A report published through the University of Southampton has announced positive findings for elderly bingo players. The research sought to look into age and the mind with the curious byproduct of centering on finding a relationship between mental ability and the popular game. Work led to a discovery that elderly players often enjoyed the advantage of superior brain power over those peers who didn’t have the same hobby.

The study was carried out by Julie Winstone at the University of Southampton’s Centre for Visual Cognition. Winstone worked within the Centre’s Department of Psychology and used a sample group of 112 individuals across various ages and levels of bingo experience. Tests were administered which centred on brain function categories such as memory, selective environmental information gathering and mental agility. Elderly subjects who played regular bingo games were shown to have much better memories than similar participants who didn’t take interest in the pastime. As a result of the statistics gathered within her research, Winstone now argues that long-term bingo playing enhances brain functions into old age.

Winstone’s presentation in Winchester was met with a lot of excitement from fellow scholars and bingo players alike. Her work has given a lot of support to the immense popularity bingo enjoys among UK seniors, providing a reason for keeping at the game right into old age.

Check out the new article and see if you can learn more about the game of bingo.

History of Bingo

Bingo Balls
I am happy to report that we have just added an
article on the History of Bingo.

This article provides the reader with a brief history of where
Bingo originated from along with explanations of how the game is played.

Bingo originated in Italy, and has found massive prominence in the United Kingdom. It is testament to the size of the
Bingo community when you look at the new breed of UK Based Bingo Halls such as Gala and Coral. Most major cities have numerous of these bingo halls and although I have never been in one, checking out the car parks show that these are well visited.

Anyway, we hope that the
article on the History of Bingo will help you to get a better understanding of where Bingo has come from.

Foxy Bingo Parts Company with Jordan

Foxy Bingo have just announced that they have severed their ties with Jordan as been the spokesperson for the online Bingo game.

Jordan has been the face of the gaming site since joining them in 2006.

The firm said Foxy Bingo could no longer compete for Jordan's time without "a significantly increased investment."

"Katie proved a fantastic building block for Foxy Bingo, helping shift perceptions of the brand and the image of bingo into the mainstream, creating a more youthful image," said the firm's commercial director Simon Collins.

Foxy ran a section called 'Katie's Charity Bingo Room' where it donated 50 per cent of all purchased bingo cards on Monday evenings to Jordan's chosen charities.
Cashcade, which owns Foxy Bingo, said the glamour model had helped give bingo a more youthful image.

Jordan's promotional work for Foxy Bingo included taking part in photo shoots with the website's Foxy mascot.
