On Monday 1st July 2013, britain’s biggest bingo site – tombola.co.uk will launch their new TV adverts.
The new TV adverts, also referred to as ‘Season 5’ features actual tombola players. The 20 second TV adverts will be aired on popular TV channels on both terrestrial and satellite.
20 tombola players from across the country were filmed over three days in the historic city of York. The adverts capture players taking part in fun activities such as; segway, ice skating, pizza making, a cruise on the River Ouse and quad biking. Each of the 20 players all appear on the adverts for a few seconds. Viewers can take a glimpse of Season 5 on the tombola YouTube channel.
One of the stars, Anita Heffernan, a resident of Leeds said: “The few days away with the other lucky players in York was one of the best experiences ever. Cast and crew were really friendly and I think the enjoyment everyone had comes through on the ads. There were some thrills and spills in some of the more adventurous activities you see on the ads such as quad biking and ice skating and we had fun seeing who might have been better applying for ‘Can’t Cook, Won’t Cook’ during the pizza making experience. The sun may not have always been shining, but all the smiles you see on screen are 100% genuine from 100% genuine tombola players and I’m proud to be one of them.”
Marketing Assistant at tombola.co.uk, Jennifer Jackson said: “Everyone had such a fabulous time from start to finish. As a result of the experience, the players have made friends for life. They’ve even set up their own dedicated Facebook page so they can keep up to date with each other. tombola is all about having a fun experience and this is exactly what the TV adverts reflect.
