Over the past week, you may have noticed one or two strange messages appearing in the free bingo games, with the message “Eric is coming. 16.07.2010″.
Many players know that Eric is the name of the voice of our bingo caller, but other than this, players were left in a complete mystery as to what was going to happen on 16th July 2010.
The arrival of Eric has also co-incided with a number of sweeping changes across the site, including the addition of a FB£25 minimum jackpot in all rooms, and the increase of all extra jackpots (XJP), making them larger and easier to win. Ticket settings were also set to intermission-only purchasing, in another exciting change designed to make the games fairer for players.
“The introduction of Eric, and subsequent changes to the FreeBingo homepage and games, is something we have been working on for a very long time.” Said FreeBingo manager CM Wayne, following the first prize session in the new Eric’s Prize Room.
“This is just the beginning of a new and improved FreeBingo UK. We are committed to providing the best and most fun free bingo experience for all our members. We have worked closely with our players on developing new ideas, such as the Eric character and running more prize events in the evenings.”
“I am delighted with the response so far to the new changes. It has been overwhelming positive.”
