Lindar Media, the owner of the popular online bingo site with zero wagering requirements, Mr Q, was understandably overjoyed to see that a famous face has recently been gracing its bingo rooms.
Although Peter Andre has previously worked with Gala Bingo on various advertising campaigns, and he was also set to perform at May’s MeccaFest in Blackpool before lockdown restrictions forced the event to be postponed, it seems as though MrQ might be his new favourite.
In the latest episode of The Sun’s weekly YouTube programme, “Life with the Andres”, Peter can be seen getting some of his tour pals together on a Zoom call to enjoy a session of virtual bingo.
Peter’s not the only celebrity who’s been getting into online bingo since the COVID-19 lockdown back in March 2020. Will and Kate helped to host a game for a group of pensioners and Love Islander, Chris Hughes has acted as quizmaster for Mecca Bingo.
It seems as though Peter was impressed by the bespoke online bingo platform at MrQ as he commented on how the software handled the shuffling of his tickets and the speed of the ball calls. Plus, he even managed to bag himself a modest win of 87p with one of his 5p tickets.
He described the playing experience as the “most random but fun thing” that he’s done so far!
You can watch the episode by visiting The Sun’s YouTube channel and looking for the latest episode of “Life with the Andres”. N.B., the MrQ scene begins at 26:40.
MrQ.com has also had other celebrities dropping by the site in recent weeks to host special bingo games as part of its Celebrity Social Influencers takeover. So far, the hosts have included TOWIE stars Harry Derbidge and Amy Childs and Love Island’s Cara De La Hoyde.
