Sportech PLC, the owners of both brands, have decided that as part of their strategy to focus its online operations on the Vernons e-Gaming brand, ‘Littlewoods Bingo’ will disappear from the online bingo landscape. For those old enough to remember the heyday of football pools, Vernons has been in gaming for more than 85 years.
A spokesperson from Sportech plc told us “consolidating the Vernons and Littlewoods Gaming brands under one name gives Sportech the opportunity to offer customers a better service, bigger promotions and rewards plus new games as part of an ever improving gaming experience. Combining these two businesses under one name allows us to provide ALL our customers with an even better customer service, bigger promotions & loyalty rewards and an ever improving gaming experience.”
According to Sportech plc the change to Vernons Bingo will mean better cash rewards and promotions. As part of the launch Vernons Bingo will offer three special offers;
a) A free bonus or free cash of up to £500
b) a 200% deposit bonus of up to £200. This means that players can triple their deposit eg deposit £30 you’ll have £90 to play with.
c) Players at Vernons Bingo will be entered into a £10,000 Prize Giveaway. The list of prizes on offer includes;
• The Open Golf Championship & The Orient Express (20th July)
• The Phil Tufnell VIP Club at the Oval (19th July)
• Lady Gaga – The Born this way ball (8th Sept)
• 42” 3D PLASMA TV
• 2 Sony Vaio laptops
• 5 x iPad3
• £1,000 worth of M&S vouchers
• £2,000 in cash
• £5,000 in bonuses
On Thursday May 10th the Littlewoods Bingo name will be changed to Vernons Bingo and traffic will divert to the new web address, but we are told that player accounts will remain unchanged, the games on offer will still be the same and the old CM team will still be there to welcome players.
