Mecca Bingo has talent and bingo clubs are reminded of their role

TAGs: Britain's Got Talent, Meccabingo.com, The Gambling Commission

Britain's Got Talent slot launches on Meccabingo.comMeccabingo.com has received its latest spoonful of themed slot action thanks to Playtech’s Virtue Fusion network. After going all nostalgic with the launch of a Blockbusters slot last year, Mecca has this time taken the firm’s Britain’s Got Talent Superstar slot and will launch it on their website. The five-reel 20-line slot will feature characters based on some of the show’s “stars” and will have exploding reels. If this means you have the chance to watch Simon Cowell’s head blow up, then I’m in.

Bob McCulloch, Virtue Fusion chief executive, said: “I’m sure Britain’s Got Talent Superstar will be a hit for Meccabingo.com. Thanks to their official partnership with the hugely popular programme, we have been able to develop a game with fantastic graphics, recognisable characters and the great gameplay you would expect from a Virtue Fusion title.”

Bingo hallIn other bingo news, the Gambling Commission has sent out a polite reminder to bingo premises that their primary activity must always be bingo. They’re looking at a number of venues that were formerly arcade businesses and seem to be offering gaming machines as their primary business.

The Gambling Commission’s Director of Strategy, Research and Analysis Matthew Hill said: “You cannot expect to use a bingo licence to run a business that isn’t bingo just to take advantage of the gaming machines entitlement. Operators of bingo premises should ensure that sufficient provision is made to ensure the primary gambling activity is bingo.”

There were us thinking that they might have been offering live burlesque dancers shooting out the balls as if you’d stumbled across bingo’s tribute to Thailand.
