we are now all fully aware that the 1200 Golden Tickets holders will have a 1 in 25,778,699,578,994,555,700 of winning £5 million at one internet bingo site, after all, many of you have probably seen the 888Ladies Golden Ticket advert on the small screens. We wouldn’t go practising your joyous celebrations for winning £5 million, it’s about as likely as a flying saucer landing on the head of the Loch Ness Monster.
What we object to about this 888Ladies promotion is that people don’t spend the time reading the terms and conditions of these types of offers and a 30 second commercial doesn’t lend the opportunity of explaining the rules. These being that the game is played on a 75 ball bingo board at 888Ladies, a grid of 5 x 5 squares with one ‘free’ at the centre. To win £5 million you have to call bingo in just 24 numbers, nigh on impossible according to the odds!
Despite the 888Ladies Golden Tickets advert being quite clever they completely miss the big selling point of theinternet bingo promotion – someone WILL win £50,000. Winning the National Lottery is more likely than winning the £5million at 888Ladies, even winning the Euromillions but then millions of people play these games, the Golden Ticket game will only have 1200 players will a total of 5000 tickets in play.
888Ladies, in our opinion, have gone for a really hard sell on a game that, although boasting a £5 million jackpot, is likely to pay out the minimum amount of £50,000. For us, the hard sell is wrong and unjust but have a look at the 888Ladies Golden Tickets advert and see what you think:
