Crewe player scoops £50k on the National Bingo Game at Mecca Bingo
It seems as though Mecca Bingo players are doing particularly well with the National Bingo Game lately.
Just last month, a member of its Dundee Douglasfield club won a whopping £50,000 jackpot on the National Bingo Game. Now, Lady Luck has helped a player at Mecca Bingo Crewe to achieve the same dream.
The anonymous player scooped a massive £50k on Saturday 12th June 2021, and it’s the Crewe club’s first £50k jackpot for over 3 years.
The National Bingo Game runs at various clubs including Buzz Bingo and Mecca Bingo, and players can scoop a £50k jackpot by calling a full house in 16 numbers or less. There’s also £1k on offer for a full house within 20 numbers and £100 for a full house within 24 numbers.
The games run daily and cost £1 for each strip of 2 tickets or £2 for each strip of 5 tickets.
ASA rules in favour of Ladbrokes Facebook ad
A recent complaint about a Ladbrokes Facebook ad has been overturned by the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) after an assessment found that it did not breach rules 16.1 and 16.3.12 of the CAP Code.
The complainant felt that the paid ad’s reference to “The Goonies” film was likely to appeal to minors.
Ladbrokes felt otherwise, however, and says that the film was released in the 1980s and would not be well-known by children of today, but was well-loved by adults who watched it as children. It also said that the ad was only targeted at over 18s.
