OMG! Has anyone else had one of these creepy retention e-mails from Nutty Bingo? I was shocked when I started reading it and couldn’t believe it was from a site on the highly respected and normally impeccably behaved Dragonfish network.
The title alone almost made me delete the thing without even reading any further as it smacked totally of spam, spam, spam and not the innocent variety either. What would you have thought getting something that said ‘I have missed you, cupcake‘? Cupcake! Cupcake! That’s far too familiar and far too personal for my liking.
But it gets worse – the greeting is ‘Anita, My Darling,‘ – Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!
It goes on. ‘I’m missing you like crazy!‘ and more, ‘I simply can’t stop thinking of the special times we had at Nutty Bingo‘. And on and on…
It might not have been so bad if I’d played there a lot, but I only signed up to be able to do a review for WhichBingo and don’t think I’ve been back since!
To be fair they are offering me a very generous 100% reload bonus up to £100, which is pretty hard to resist, but the tone of the e-mail put me in a mindset not to be fair at all.
Nutty Bingo isn’t the only online bingo site to try and lure me back with this gem of an e-mail. I have had the same one from Cyber Bingo too.
The promo code on these e-mails is BACK, so if there is a Dragonfish site you haven’t visited for a while, such as those above, or the likes of Jackpot Bingo or Glorious Bingo it might just be worth a try with a return visit. Free bingo bonus is free bingo bonus after all and the e-mail is not a reflection of the actual sites themselves and how they behave.
These sites should take note, however, that in my humble opinion this e-mail is not going to attract back as many wayward players as it might were it worded differently.
