One of the top online bingo sites, 888 Ladies, has announced that it is an official sponsor of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life. The Race for Life is an annual sporting event for women, which aims to raise money to fund research into various types of cancer. 888Ladies Bingo chose to sponsor Race for Life as like itself, it is just for women, making a clear link between the two organisations.
888 Ladies donate £100,000
As an official sponsor for the event, 888Ladies has already donated £100,000, but members of the bingo site can also help raise money for Cancer Research UK by buying tickets for the two games, which have been created especially for this good cause. 888Ladies will donate 10% of all profits from ticket sales in the Race for Life rooms, Sunday £10k and Monday £5k, during the campaign. Players, who opt into the games with the code RFL, are tasked with earning as many points as possible as part of a ‘race’. Points can be earned by buying 10 tickets for a Race for Life game, winning on bingo patterns R, F and L, wagering on instant win games, and depositing cash. Score 30 points and the player will receive a code for discounted tickets for the Race for Life games. There are lots of prizes to be won on these events, including £200 cash for first place, but anyone that finishes the fortnight in position 31 or over will be automatically entered into a raffle for a chance to win an iPhone 6, Mini iPad, Samsung Tablet 5, Samsung S6, t-shirts, and sports headphones. 888Ladies has also launched the hashtag #888ladiespinkarmy to raise awareness about Race for Life and Cancer Research UK on its social media pages.
