The Famous Faces of Celebrity Bingo
Online bingo is super popular, so you’ve probably seen loads of online bingo adverts on TV and in magazines. Having celebrities pose as the face of a bingo brand can be a very effective way in attracting players to bingo sites. Let’s take a look at several bingo brands and their celebrity stars.
Mel B for Costa Bingo
In 2014 Mel B became the face of Costa Bingo, appearing in magazines, TV adverts, and on the site itself. Mel B is an accomplished British recording artist, actress, model, and talent competition judge. This campaign was so popular that Mandalay Media extended her contract into 2015. The addition of ‘Scary Spice’ proved to be a successful move and really set Costa Bingo apart from other sites!
Barbara Windsor for JackpotJoy
Barbara Windsor is a well know British actress, famous for her role as Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders and appearances in Carry On films. Since 2010 she's been the ‘Queen of Bingo’ at Jackpotjoy, appearing on the site and in TV adverts that have enjoyed lots of success. To celebrate Jackpotjoy’s 10th anniversary, Windsor called unsuspecting players and offered free bonus cash if they answer their phone with a specific catchphrase!
Verne Troyer for bgo
Since 2014 Verne Troyer has been ‘the boss’ at bgo Casino, appearing in many of their promotional activities. Troyer is best known for his role as Mini-me in the hit film, Austin Powers. Following much success with Troyer bgo Casino signed Dan Bilzerian, a professional poker player and social media celebrity.
