Recently launched on TV, Mirror Bingo has unveiled a new advertising campaign to celebrate the launch of its new Bingo site.
The campaign features a depressed ‘Bobby Bingo’ character – a tragic figure who laments the demise of the traditional bingo hall with the people of the UK as he surveys his empty hall at bingo night.
The ad highlights the shift in popularity from bingo halls to online gaming, where players enjoy bingo games on desktop, tablet and mobile in the comfort of their own home.
Recent Bingo Association figures show that there are now less than 400 bingo halls in the UK – half the number of those during the game’s heyday.
This figure contrasts with the almost 500 online bingo sites in the UK.
Mirror Bingo offer big jackpot prizes and a range of bingo games, which a traditional bingo hall can’t really compete with. And Mirror Bingo, like all online bingo sites, allow players to socialise rather than sit in silence in a bingo hall!
And we all know how much fun chatting to other players is!
We can’t help feeling sorry for Bobby Bingo though… but perhaps there’s still hope out there for him!
