More news this week from the Crown Bingo camp (well actually and rather confusingly from the Virgin Bingo camp) about Alison Hammond. Named in 2008 as the 'face of Crown Bingo' Alison has taken time out from her busy schedule of filming for Loose Women and This Morning to appear in various instances of chat with Crown players over the last year.
In a surprise turn up for the books however she was spotted recently by various eagle eyed players on Virgin Bingo's Facebook fan page. While it's true that she was a guest CM in 2007 at Virgin and shared a web chat with Virgin players to discuss the other members of the Big Brother house that made her name, we were surprised to see her add her name to this list of fans.
We love everyone too!
Miss Hammond has long been a fan of online bingo that much is clear, but with no mention of her having left Crown or her intention to do so, this move shouldn't bode too well for her future with one of the biggest names in UK bingo. Famous for being the second person to be evicted from Big Brother 3 after breaking a table, Alison should be more aware of how public perception can change the rules of any game at any time.
Why the crown has slipped?
Maybe it's the huge range of games that has convinced Miss Hammond to become a fan of the Virgin Bingo site, or maybe even their fun Cool Cat promo but we know what is our long standing favourite feature here; it's the game's tie in with Vpoints. Offering you the chance to win back some fantastic prizes and rewards year-round for your game, Virgin has the upper hand over most loyalty schemes in this respect and we know of many well travelled players who are more than happy about it!
Come fly with me
With opportunities for flying miles, Virgin vouchers and real cash to play for, there sure are many ways to play at Virgin not least their fab Xmas offer to win £200 worth of shopping vouchers when you buy £5 worth of bingo tickets. This offer sadly ends on the 4th December but is sure to be replaced with another fantastic feature soon after. Don't forget you will also get a free Necker Island scratchcard everytime you log in at Virgin, since you could win anything from 10p to £500 on this fab freebie!
