Online bingo is one of the fastest growing pastimes today – and hundreds of celebs agree that a spin in the bingo rooms is a great way to spend a couple of hours! Bingo has moved from the halls to online and many celebs and soap stars are now endorsing a number of the bingo destinations, bringing in even more players keen to follow in the footsteps of their favorite celebs!
There are lots of famous names cropping up in the bingo rooms online these days, actors from British soap operas Hollyoaks, Eastenders, Emmerdale and Corrie and more. Some of these stars even appear in the chat rooms to talk to players about their lastest bingo wins!
It isn't just faces from the soaps that turn up in online bingo, other stars that can often be seen enjoying a game include presenters, WAGs (for us here in the states, a WAG means wives and girlfriends of soccer stars. So, Victoria Beckham is David Beckham's WAG!), socialites and other people often famous just for being famous!
British celebs and actors that have been bingo ambassadors in recent times include Jordan, Sharon Osbourne, Barbara Windsor, Ricky Tomlinson, Denise Van Outen, Kerry Katona and TOWIE star Lauren Goodger. Some big names from film, music and politics – on both sides of the pond -- are also associated with bingo and have a reputation for enjoying a flutter, such as Robbie Williams, Russell Crowe, Bill Clinton, Prince William and even the Queen!
One popular site, BingoCams, has regular celeb evenings where a celebrity joins in the action, chats to players and runs the room! Previous celebrity chat hosts include Calum Best, Carley Stenson and that naughty chap, Chico! With the celeb hosts, Bingo Cams often involves the use of webcams so players can see the stars and interact more closely and even make a new bingo buddy!
FoxyBingo is known for its connection to famous names, with Jordan endorsing the site until recently. Barbara Windsor is the face of Jackpot Joy and Ricky Tomlinson loves playing the game so much he even made a song about it and released a bingo DVD game with himself as bingo caller!
Right now, famous names form the soaps are cropping up again all over the online bingo world. Check out the big online bingo sites today like Costa Bingo and you might well see one of the following celeb players, all of whom we've heard enjoy a flutter: Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) and Michelle Kegan (Tina McIntyre) from Corrie; Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher), Jo Joyner (Tanya Branning) and Laila Morse (Mo Harris) from Eastenders and Sarah Jayne Dunn (Mandy Richardson) from Hollyoaks are all regular bingo players.
The great thing about online bingo is not only the people you can meet in the bingo rooms, whether they are celebs or regular roomies, but also that you can enjoy playing at the same time as watching your favorite soaps! All you need is an internet connection – then you can log in and start enjoying the fun! What could be better than winning cash, playing fun games and chatting to buddies – all this at the same time as watching the soaps on TV!
