|After two highly-successful years, players at Think Bingo have voted out Bernie as their regular caller for being “too boring” – 68% of Think Bingo patrons voted to give Bernie the bullet.|
His place will be taken by ex-Gala Bingo hall legend Alan Stockdale, a former winner of the National Bingo Game Association Caller of the Year award and twice Regional Winner.
Since ThinkBingo.com opened the first of its five online bingo halls in August 2004, Bernie’s recorded voice has been heard calling the numbers. He has overseen more than £16m in prize money being handed out to over 50,000 Think Bingo players.
From Saturday, the voice of Stockdale – arguably Britain's most famous bingo caller – will be heard calling the numbers, ‘I’m anxious because it’s a demanding position and Bernie is one heck of an act to follow. But I’m confident I can pick up where Bernie left off and not disappoint the Think Bingo ladies.’
Dylan Schlosberg, Spokesperson for Think Bingo said, ‘We’re delighted to have Alan as our new caller. He’s a legend in the land bingo world and a real feather in our cap.’
