If anyone has seen Strictly Come Dancing this year they will have seen the new face of Mecca Bingo Louise Redknapp strutting her stuff in fine style and getting better and better each week. At the other end of the scale was first out Melvin Odoom and a surprise contender ex-Labour MP Ed Balls. Both tried hard, but embarrassing is the word that comes to mind for each of their efforts.
This is no surprise to the people at Mecca Bingo, however, as a recent survey by them revealed that a massive 37% of people will be embarrassed by their own moves the day after the office Christmas party! Looking good on the dancefloor is not as easy as some people make it look. The survey found that 7% won't attend the party at all just to avoid the dancefloor shenanigans.
Party dancing is seen as such a minefield that it takes an average of five (alcoholic) drinks before many will brave the dancefloor at all, but maybe they shouldn't have bothered because at that point 9% believe that 'the robot', made famous by footballer Peter Crouch', will make them the star of the show. That drink fuelled confidence could also result in some serious injury as it also makes people believe they are potential Strictly stars and they start to attempt some more spectacular moves.
Spokesperson for Mecca Bingo, Caroline Webb, said: “Despite our embarrassment, it seems that the nation is a team of wannabe dancers and that the key to getting that festive feeling is to successfully throw some Strictly-style shapes. We hope that the UK will put its worries to one side and hit the dancefloor with confidence, as having fun with family, friends and colleagues is one way to have a very merry Christmas.”Discover more about Mecca Bingo
What marks out any new season? It tends to be a significant shift, usually in the weather, or the raising of awareness and activity of something in particular. Think football season or tennis season. Then there is awards season and festival season. This year sees the inauguration of Bingo Season.
Bingo season is perfectly timed to mark the beginning of what is arguably the busiest and best month of the year for online bingo fans. All the biggest and best bingo sites and operators tend to come up trumps with the offers and giveaways that appear between now and the end of December.
To mark this first ever recognition of an official bingo season, WhichBingo are getting fully behind it and running a fantastic competition to get everyone in the mood.
As bingo tends to be about friends coming together for a common interest and the community spirit around a bingo site can make or break it, this competition rewards the winner and the friend who nominated them.
WhichBingo has a Red Letter Day voucher worth £200 to give away that can be spent on the experience of a lifetime or some much needed luxury and pampering.
Just visit the competition page, nominate a friend on the form provided with the reason you think they deserve to experience that winning feeling.
Last date for entries is 6th January 2017 and terms and conditions apply.
It's December and that means it is advent calendar time and no-one does it in quite the same way as tombola.
With £100,000 to be given away this is the biggest giveaway yet from the award winning Sunderland based online bingo firm. Just visit the site every day and tap the Christmas pudding to reveal your symbol for the day.

In between there are prizes of £10, £20, £50, £100, £500 and £1,000.
The gruff voiced gingerbread man doesn't believe that you can really get something for nothing and wants to know 'what's the catch?' There really is no catch. You can register with the site and start playing the advent calendar straight away with no deposit required - and you can withdraw what you win (except the £5 bingo bonus).
PLUS - on Monday, 5th Decenber the tombola Christmas raffle is back. Just register your mobile number and get a ticket to your phone every Monday.

We have been advised of the imminent closure of another online bingo site. This time it is One2Go Bingo which was a Virtue Fusion bingo site.
One2Go Bingo will close on 20th December so there is still time to visit the site should you think you have any funds sitting in an account there. You can either play through or withdraw. Should you experience any issues, or if you have any queries, you can contact the site direct by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
One2Go Bingo was the last remaining bingo site from Bauer Media who, in 2015, opened a separate, but short-lived, online bingo site for each of its radio stations around the country. These were simply carbon copies of each other on a very basic Playtech platform. It seems the company is now going back to what it does best.
Playtech is one of the most successful bingo platforms around and the most popular with players. One2Go Bingo is only the second site on this software to close its doors in 2016 - not bad in the current climate.Find a new Playtech bingo site here
Foxy Bingo loves to bring its celebrity pals together. When they can put some Christmas spirit and the chance of 'lurrvve' on the same programme and get those celebs together it is too good an opportunity to miss.
This year the speed dating event wasn't on a cold and damp river it was on dry land and labelled the 'Love Lodge' - and very cosy it looked too.
10 celebs, mainly from the world of reality TV were happy to go along and speak to journalists and fellow party goers about their dating history and their favourite chat up lines.
Among the cast were Antony Costa from boyband Blue, Hugo Taylor from Made in Chelsea and Jeremy McConnell - billed as an Irish model, but best known for a stint in Celebrity Big Brother and the 'is he/isn't he' controversy as to whether he is the father of fellow contestant Steph Davis' baby, which is due any day now.
Some of the attendees are known to have partners, such as Hugo Taylor who is said to be still an item with co-star Millie Mackintosh, so this was just a nice excuse to get dressed up and have a bit of fun - and fun is what online bingo should be all about, so we are all for it.See what Foxy Bingo is all about here
WhichBingo wins again!
While we normally take great pleasure in bringing you all the news about the biggest and best in the online bingo world, this morning we are giving ourselves a pat on the back. On Monday, 28th November at the 2016 EGR Operator Awards at the Artillery Gardens in London, WhichBingo was named Best Bingo Affiliate 2016. This is the second consecutive year, and the fourth time in recent years, we have scooped this prestigious award and to say we are thrilled is an understatement.
The EGR Operator Awards are very special in the gaming industry and in the areas covered by WhichBingo some familiar names took home gongs too. Best Bingo Operator was named as tombola, Sky Betting and Gaming did well in many categories around sportsbook and casino, but they were pipped at the post for the most coveted of the night, Operator of the Year. This accolade went to Unibet, who operate the Relax Gaming bingo platform, also securing the awards for Most Socially Responsible, Best Marketing Campaign along they way.
Mancunian comedian Jason Manford was the host for the evening, but we don't think he is a fan of the online bingo world. We enjoyed a mini 30 ball bingo game as the event was progressing with a ball called between every award, only for Manford to comment as he called a number, "A little bit of me dies every time I have to do this!" He also reminded us that he had appeared in front of royalty and kept reminding himself to, "think of the kids, Jason, think of the kids."
@Microgaming I LOVED the bingo! 😜 cheers for a fun night. X— JasonManford (@JasonManford) November 28, 2016
With thanks to EGR and all the event sponsors for a wonderful event that is a highlight in the gaming calendar.
Robin Hood Bingo is one of those smaller online bingo sites that can sometimes fly under the radar, but this is a massive shame given the scope of its offers and the games within its virtual walls.
Right now would be a perfect time to check out all that this nice looking and friendly bingo site has to offer thanks to one of the best welcome offers it has ever run.
For a limited time only registering at Robin Hood Bingo will net you £20 of free bingo tickets to play its massive December special bingo game, the Grand 55. These tickets are worth £5 each for the sliding jackpot game with a top prize of £55,000, but a minimum guaranteed jackpot that is still a very nice £5,000.
Go on to make a first deposit of just £10 and this triggers a £50 bingo bonus and 10 free spins on everyone's favourite slot game Fluffy Favourites.
Don't miss out - this offer will not be around for very long.Discover all you need to know about Robin Hood Bingo
