Meccabingo blockbusters has announced the launch of an exclusive new bingo room, based on the 80s quiz show phenomenon, Blockbusters.

Featuring the original theme music, the iconic honeycomb grid and with letters replacing bingo numbers, Blockbusters Bingo is sure to have fans on the edges of their seats screaming, ‘Can I have a P please’!

As the first online 26 ball bingo game, Blockbusters Bingo promises a fast paced and thrilling game play. There are two cash prizes up for grabs, which can be won by matching a vertical column or horizontal line. But players will need to keep up as these prizes can go at any time, even at the same time!
In addition to the standard cash prizes, will also be treating all players who finish a game with one-to-go (or 1TG in bingo speak) to a game with a special Gold Run bonus round (just like the show). Blockbusters fans will need to decide their own fate in this feature, by working their way across the grid, selecting and scratching off the panels. Match just two cash values to add to your winnings.

What’s more, for the first time in online bingo, will be offering a community jackpot seeded at £5000! This will be shared amongst all players who have bought tickets for the game when the first 5 letters called in that game spell the word; bingo.
Following in the footsteps of’s exclusive Britain’s Got Talent Bingo game, Angus Nisbet, Director of Gaming at Rank Interactive comments: “Branded online bingo games are among the most popular on and I am sure that Blockbusters will be another success.”

Just to get fans started, will be offering all new customers £5 FREE PLAY until July 31st. Existing customers can also claim £5 FREE PLAY when they spend £5 on Blockbusters Bingo until 31st July 2010.
