Blackpool Bingo Launches in UK - Friday 3rd of February 2006

UNITED KINGDOM – Blackpool Bingo just launched in the UK.

The ever present feeling of excitement, the world famous Illuminations and amusement park and the mind-boggling list of fun things to do whatever the time. There's something about Blackpool which is hard to put your finger on, an infectious zest for life which keeps you wanting more.

Blackpool Bingo allows people from all over the world to tap into that 'buzz' from the comfort and convenience of their own home. "90-Ball Bingo has been a part of British culture for decades. In the last few years it's made the transition to the internet but until recently has always played second fiddle to the American 75-ball version. Blackpool Bingo will change all that. It's a British 90-ball game, in pounds and pence, using 90-ball bingo cards and is first and foremost for all us Brits online," comments James Ball from Blackpool Bingo.

Part of the Blackpool attraction is the feeling of being part of one big happy family on holiday. Blackpool Bingo captures this community aspect of its real counterpart by offering a detachable advanced chat screen. "Players can pre-buy cards, set them to play automatically and then open the chat window to catch up with all their new friends. With our multi-window option you can be chatting away nineteen to the dozen while keeping an eye on how well your cards are doing. Gone are the cramped 'chat boxes' squeezed into the corner of the screen," said Ball.

Wondering where to play bingo? Blackpool is the quintessentially English holiday location. Blackpool Bingo is the new quintessentially British online bingo location.
