Guess where I am this week! Only mingling with top models, celebrities and fashion designers at the world’s biggest fashion event – London Fashion Week! Yep, I have front row seats to watch all those glamorous men and women saunter down the catwalk wearing all manner of chic designer outfits and accessories! It really is an eye opener! Actually, I once dabbled in the idea of becoming a catwalk model, but I think I’ve always been a bit too much on the rotund side for that unfortunately… so I decided to become a bingo mascot instead! But that doesn’t mean I’m not going all out to celebrate the trendiest event in the fashion calendar! In fact, I’m bringing you five fashionably free, 1p and 5p games to play, to win a runway of en-vogue prizes! They play every evening at 8:30pm throughout London Fashion Week, from 12th – 16th September! Prizes include Ugg boots, a Pandora bracelet with charms, a Michael Kors purse, some Rimmel cosmetics AND some swanky Ray-Ban sunglasses… so you can really release your inner fashionista! So make sure to play!
Anyway roomies, I’d better put my tablet away now because the next lot of models are just about to come down the catwalk!
Catch you later

Here at Costa Bingo, we’re bonkers about the game. From the beloved bingo lingo, to the thrill and excitement of being the first to mark off your card – it’s no wonder the game has stood the test of time. The origins of the game are somewhat hazy, but we’ve taken a look back through history to give you a snapshot. Here’s how bingo has shaped itself from the lotteries of Italy to modern day online bingo at Costa Bingo. Read More…
Here at Costa Bingo we love all the history surrounding bingo almost as much as the game itself! The classic bingo calls that people used to shout out every time a ball emerged from the bingo ball spinner is an integral part of the game, and a tradition we don’t want to see dying out just because the game has now moved online. So, without further ado, here’s our pick of the favourite bingo number calls of all time and an explanation of where they come from. Read More…
