LONDON, January 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
To coincide with the arrival of David Hasselhoff's first foray into online gaming, GalaBingo.com, a division of the Gala Coral Group, the UK's largest bingo operator and third largest gaming firm, introduces the exclusive Hoff Scratchcard - and players trying it out will even get the chance to meet the Baywatch and Knight Rider star himself.
Running online from Tuesday, January 29th to Sunday,February 3rd and exclusive to GalaBingo.com, the unique 'Scratch Hoff Bonus' promotion also offers players the chance to be one of 5 fans (plus guests) to meet the Hoff himself in a select VIP event in London.
Qualifying members will be invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell GalaBingo.com why they should get to meet him.
The Gala Bingo team will pick the five most creative explanations as winners with lots of Hoff-branded signed merchandise for five runners-up.
To qualify, new and existing players simply have to deposit and spend just £5 on the game, (and they'll also get a £5 games bonus) to try the new scratchcard. The game itself features the Hoff in full 'romance' mode, with roses, chocolates and champagne, as well as a love-boat ride, the order of the day.
The Hoff, one of the few celebrities world-famous enough to need only one name along with the likes of Sting, Bono and Madonna, comes armed with a personality tailor-made for the glitz and glamour of online gaming so it was perhaps inevitable that he would make his debut in such spectacular fashion.
"There's no better way to introduce myself to the online gaming world than with a household name like GalaBingo.com, one of the leading Bingo brands in the U.K, if not the world," stated Hasselhoff on the Scratchcard's launch.
"The Hoff Scratchcard is fun for me, fun for Gala Bingo and, most importantly fun, for Gala's players and my fans who could even win the chance to meet me in person as part of the unique launch promotion."
