Although many bingo brands are focusing on the festive period, it's good to see at least one remembering Remembrance. Mecca Bingo are hosting a number of games between the 8th and 11th November in support of The Royal British Legion. These charity games will see all stakes donated to the good cause.

There are Poppy Day Bingo Games running every hour between 12.30pm and 9.30pm. Tickets for the games will cost 10p each and you'll be playing to win 100 in every game. You won't be able to miss the games as they'll be linked across Two Little Ducks, Dancing Queen, Legs Eleven, Lucky for Some and Key to the Door.

This is a fabulous gesture from Mecca Bingo and it's a surprise that other big brands don't get involved. The only thing we can think of is that The Royal British Legion may limit the use of the poppy and restrict big brands from using it as a promotional tool. Perhaps there may be one or two more charity games played on the 11th November?

These aren't the only charity bingo games that are currently running. Wink Bingo for example are still working on raising money for the Peter Andre Fund. They aim to to raise 50,000 for CRUK before the end of November. The good news is that it looks like that target will be achieved.

As you may know there's even a Charity Bingo site which runs on the 15 Network. This has recently changed it's approach with regards to who it donates to. In the past the site would select a good cause of the month/two months and then make the appropriate donation. However they are now accumulating a "Charity Bingo Heroes Pot" and "from time to time will announce awards of 500 to 1000".

We remain unconvinced that supporting a good cause influences a player's choice with regards where they play. However it's great to see brands working to support things like The Royal British Legion and CRUK - so well done to all concerned.
