Meccabingo launches iPhone app

Meccabingo.com has launched the very first real money bingo app for the iPhone, enabling customers to play bingo and win jackpots anytime, anywhere.

Available and free to download from the App Store now, Mecca Bingo’s latest mobile offering is fully integrated with Mecca’s bingo network provider, Virtue Fusion, meaning the app is the first of its kind to allow mobile users to play the same bingo games and win the same cash prizes available to online customers.

Head of bingo and games, Claire Osborne commented: “The mobile market is a huge focus for Meccabingo.com in 2011, with a large number of our customers already playing our slots games on the iPhone. When developing the app, we wanted to create something that not only placed us at the forefront of the mobile gaming market, but offered a seamless user experience for our customers, whether they’re playing online or on their phone.

“Another important aspect that we wanted to focus on was the community side of bingo, with customers currently being able to chat to each other online in our bingo rooms. Building this new app has given us a fantastic opportunity to take this concept one step further with an integrated chat function, allowing players to continue to chat whilst playing bingo wherever they are.”

Featuring many more familiar online functions such as the Mecca Bingo Club finder, live bingo schedule and the option to pre-purchase tickets, the Mecca Bingo iPhone App is extremely easy to use. Customers can already log in using their existing usernames and new customers can also register via the app.

The brand new bingo app for the iPhone will also be incorporated into Mecca Bingo’s TV advertising campaign, which will give customers the chance to win ten £1,000 jackpots daily by playing at meccabingo.com or on their iPhone.

The Mecca Bingo App is live now and can be downloaded from the App Store for free. An Android version of the application is also set to launch early this year.
