When Adele picked up her Ivor Novello awards yesterday, one of which was for most performed song for Rolling in the Deep, she expressed her appreciation to all the karaoke fans out there who helped to get her there.
Of course, we have the biggest karaoke contest of the year coming up next week with the Eurovision Song Contest. Even with an internationally known name like Engelbert Humperdink the UK is unlikely to make much of a dent on the leaderboard, but of course we can laugh at the pantomime of it all thanks to Terry Wogan and his worth successor Graham Norton commentating with tongues firmly in cheeks.
In the spirit of fun it is great to see Jackpotjoy offering players the chance to get in the mood for the whole affair with its That Singing Feeling promotion.
These days anyone that is familiar with Jackpotjoy Bingo will know that the site and its hosts and particularly its Facebook administrators are all about the fun they can inject into players lives and this is a classic example.
The site is allowing anyone that spends just £10 on bingo or £20 on slots, mini games or casino games to upload themselves singing along to tracks they can choose at the site when they click the ‘take part’ button. On 28th May 20 entrants will each be £1,000 better off.
That’s a generous giveaway for people larking about and having a bit of fun karaoke style and is a great example of how Jackpotjoy is striving to bring something new to the online bingo arena and long may it continue I say.
