Today, Wednesday, July 21st, Mecca Bingo is raising the curtain on the much anticipated Blockbuster online bingo room which is based on the very popular TV game show from the 80’s. In case you don’t remember the show or you just simply happened to be born during the 80’s let me give you a quick trip down memory lane.

The UK version of this original American show first appeared on ITV and was hosted by Bob Holness. The show run for ten seasons before being dropped by ITV only to be picked up by Sky One. One of the most memorable moments of this show was a blooper scene that featured a contestant who was asked “What ‘O’ is the generic word for any living animal or plant, including bacteria and viruses?” only to reply Orgasm instead of Organism.

Now, you will be able to find and play this online bingo game exclusively at Mecca Bingo which is so different to any other bingo game out there today. First of all this bingo game will feature letters instead of numbers. 26 letters will be draw and you will be asked to match letters on your cards to build a horizontal or vertical line in order to win. With only 26 letters being called, these games will be much faster than the usual 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games. There are two cash prizes up for grabs during the Blockbuster bingo games which can be won by matching a vertical column or a horizontal line.

Furthermore, on all bonus games, all players that miss out with one to go – “1TG” – will receive a Gold Run Scratch Card where they can win up to £50. Additionally, a £5,000 Community Jackpot will be won once the letters B-I-N-G-O come out in the first 5 letters drawn in any order.

As always, with Mecca Bingo being such a gracious online bingo host they are giving you, all new players, a £5 free bonus when you register and go to the Blockbuster bingo area. If you had signed up before the 21st July you will get £5 credited into your bingo account once you have spend £5 on the Blockbuster games. It’s still a win-win situation for all players.

The Blockbuster game offers such a unique online bingo experience like no other so make sure you open your Mecca Bingo account and get the £50 free play bonus on your first deposit.
