Gala Bingo Pays Tribute to UK Gaming Shows
Tipping Point was created exclusively by ITV for the UK audience and has been airing for 10 years, 2 weeks from now. The first episode was launched on 2 July 2012 and still has a big following, a decade later. The show still makes headlines and just last week, a contender from Oldsbury managed to win the highest jackpot of £10,000 – Congratulations Tina and congratulations Tipping Point!
UK online bingo site Gala Bingo, has had a long-term relationship with ITV, stretching back to 2013, where they partnered up for an online slot version of TV show Coronation Street. Over the years, the collaboration has also rendered in playable versions of classic game shows like The Chase, and In For a Penny.
David Winter, Marketing Manager at Gala Bingo says that “the bingo community has a close bond to long-time runners like Coronation Street, and are naturally very fond of game shows, such as The Chase, In For a Penny and Tipping Point. These are frequently hot topics in our chat rooms so we have chosen to post a handful of blog posts over the last few months that include anything from stats, viewers habits, quizzes, and fun facts that might be out of interest for the British TV audience.”
