Widow Claims Online Bingo Fraud

A widow has claimed that she was defrauded £9,000 while playing online bingo, and is now trying to claim her money back from the three sites that she had accounts with, in order to regain her losses. Rita Tapping, who is a 63 year old bingo player from Whitley Wood Road in Reading, claims that she began to enjoy bingo online when she was caring for her sick husband at home, taking comfort from the social nature of the game in the evenings as she could no longer get out and about. The widow claims that she was only spending £20 at a time and that that thieves must have somehow managed to get access to her account, spending a massive £9,000 without her knowledge.

Online Bingo Site To Sponsor Football Club

Online bingo site Tombola is apparently set to take over the sponsorship of Sunderland FC, which will go into effect from next season. The site has its headquarters in Sunderland, and has allegedly signed an initial two year contract that is said to be worth a massive seven figure sum to Sunderland FC each year. This sponsorship will be sure to secure prominent exposure within the club’s Stadium of Light venue. The team’s manager Lesley Callaghan said that the Premier League football sponsorship was a first for the bingo industry, although many online gambling sites such as sports betting and similar have been using football club sponsorships as a promotion and marketing channel.
