Anyone who knows anything about British online and traditional bingo, knows that Mecca Bingo is one of the biggest names in the book. They might also know that Marie Curie Cancer Care is the charity this brand has been supporting for the past couple of years. True to the intrinsic nature of bingo itself, charitable concerns are big in the game plan.
We have seen members of this brands’ staff throw themselves out of perfectly good aeroplanes in the pursuit of charitable funds. We have seen them climb mountains, walk, run, lose weight and all kinds of weird and wonderful ways have been used to raise funds. Online they even have a charity week for the first seven days of every month!
Now a Mecca Rochdale team member has started training for the Great North Run which takes place in September. Tom Scott will be taking to the streets of Newcastle-upon-Tyne on Sunday the 16th September, 2012, to complete the 13.1 mile-long road-race. Actually 41 of these Bingo Clubs across the UK will be taking part in the run, and between them hope to raise £50,000 for the charity.
While we are chatting about Mecca Bingo – check them out online – there is another new game. Plenty of games at the site have been themed on TV reality shows; they exclusively hosts “Britains’ Got Talent Bingo” and now they have got the X Factor too. Not only because of the huge participation in the Great North Run, but because a brand new game of X Factor bingo has been recently launched at the site. It offers more chances to win, as well as an X Factor Feature Prize. So, if you think you have the X Factor, this should be the next game you play. Choose the winning category; win a share of the feature prize, and also qualify for a free scratchcard at the end of the game.
