Mecca Bingo Review
About Mecca Bingo
Mecca Bingo is a household name in the UK and chances are you may have been to a Mecca club at some point. Their knowledge and skills relating to all things bingo are second to none and this is reflected in the great promotions offered and exclusive games they can offer.
The site got a complete front-end makeover in June 2015 and a more complete update, games included, in September 2016. This meant it went fully HTML5 responsive and even more features were added. Burst Bingo and Emoji Bingo became available to laptop and desktop users as well as mobile bingo players.
Singer and TV presenter Louise Redknapp became the new face of Mecca Bingo in October 2016 and launched the 'We Know the Feeling' marketing campaign. The celebrity endorsement was made even stronger given that she played a big part in the Strictly Come Dancing series on BBC1 that was running at the same time. That partnership came to a natural end in September 2017.
As is normal with Mecca Bingo when they launch a new initiative there was a series of TV ads and other ads across many other areas. The campaign highlighted the new look logo and the revamped Mecca Bingo site and helped to emphasize that Mecca Bingo is a market leader in online as well as high street bingo.
The site is vibrant and easy to use, with great prizes and there is always something new and fun to going on with the award-winning and friendly CMs.
At Meccabingo.com you can be sure that everyone that visits will find something to suit them with its innovative games and promotions to keep you entertained. The site prides itself on the award-winning bingo chat rooms, where you can meet great new people at the same time as playing some brilliant games.
