Real truth

/ 03

Mecca Bingo is one of the UK’s oldest, most prestigious bingo halls.

But, with the move to digital, the gaming market has continued to grow. Faced with fresher brands and big offers, Mecca Bingo couldn’t just rely on their name. They needed a media plan as playful as the brand itself.

Real connection

We wanted to break Mecca out of their comfort zone.

Putting them front and centre in their target audience’s TV watching habits by partnering with ITV’s new peak time gameshow Celebrity Lingo. From word game style idents during the show right to a playable daily game themed around Celebrity Lingo, this was more than just a sponsorship. This was an interactive creative campaign that drove brand recognition, all while giving customers a taste of what to expect. Keeping the fun going long after the episode had ended.
