What do Charlie Bucket, Veruca Salt, Mike Teavee, Violet Beauregarde and Augustus Gloop have in common? That’s right, they are all characters from the world-renowned Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie and West End musical. They also happen to be the five team names in Sing Bingo’s new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Chat Tourney that is running between June 29 and July 30. Players who enter the qualifying rooms during the two hour chat sessions, will be automatically placed into one of the teams as they compete for Sing Points and Diamonds.
These chat tournaments take place on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in the Karaoke Nights and The Winner Takes All rooms at predetermined times. Sing Bingo players will receive 1,000 Sing Points every time they call bingo on a Full House and 1 tourney point for their team. Once the two hour period is up, the team with the most points will be declared the winning team and each of their members will have their accounts credited with 5,000 Diamonds. Each player must remain in the room for at least an hour in order to be eligible to receive the Diamonds.
But that’s not all. At the end of the competition, all Sing Bingo roomies that took part in these chat tournaments at least once, will have their names entered into a special prize draw and one lucky winner and their guest will get to experience the live version of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. The musical is directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes so you can expect a huge spectacle. The draw for this amazing prize will take place on Thursday July 31 and the winner will be notified via email.
