The summer usually means less bingo adverts on the TV. Although to be fair the whole of 2016 seems to have seen the demise of the bingo ad - either that or we're just not seeing them as often. Take the current campaign from Mecca Bingo for example. Have you seen this on the small screen? We've not but it's up on Youtube so perhaps social media is a better (and cheaper way) to advertise?
Anyway, Mecca Bingo's latest offering is to promote their £10K Emoji Escalator Jackpots. These take place every Friday and Saturday in July so there's still plenty of time for you to get involved. Emoji Bingo is an exclusive game to Mecca. As you'd expect it replaces bingo numbers with Emojis - a bit like Tombola's Pirates game.
The Emoji Escalating Jackpots start at £10,000 each week and escalate until they've been won. To win the jackpot you need to call a full house in 16 bingo calls or less until 7pm on Friday when the ball call will escalate by one per hour. If it's not won on the Friday then the jackpot rolls on to the Saturday when the ball call increases by two every hour.
Mecca expect that the jackpot will have fallen by 10pm on Saturday, but if for some reason it's not been won then the ball call increases until the £10K is won. Note that this is a community jackpot so 50% of the jackpot will go to the full house winner and the other 50% will be shared between everyone who had tickets in play for the winning game.
The advert itself doesn't go into too much detail but continues the current "Friends That Play Together" theme. We still think the cartoon people are very similar to those seen in the British Gas adverts!
