splashes the cash at Meadowhall

Published: Tue Mar 31 2009 has announced that it is giving lucky shoppers at the Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield the chance to grab a grand at an exciting 'Splash the Cash' event on 4th April., the leading online bingo site, will be bringing its recent television advertising campaign to life by inviting shoppers to enter its 'Splash the Cash' pods to try to grab as much money as they can before the time runs out.

Hosted by Wheel of Fortune presenter Paul Hendy, there will be two ways that shoppers will be able to grab a fortune. Shoppers will be able to take part through either the 'Grab a Grand Competition' or the 'Splash the Cash Prize Draw' which will take place between 10am and 4pm.

To enter the gala bingo 'Grab a Grand Competition', shoppers don't need to even know how to play online bingo. All they need to do is pop along to the Lower Arcade in the Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield, and simply register with at one of the laptop stations for their chance to step inside one of the two pods to try and grab the swirling cash. Lucky contestants will then have 45 seconds to see how much of the money they can catch.

When their time is up, the cash will be counted and their score placed onto the leader board. Whoever manages to grab the most cash by the end of the day will get to keep the money.

To add to the excitement, at 1pm and 3pm two lucky prize draw winners will also be given the chance to enter the 'Splash the Cash Prize Draw' in which they can grab up to 1000. Whatever amount the prize draw winners manage to catch they will get to keep.

Being able to play bingo is not necessary for either event. To enter the prize draw, all shoppers have to do is fill in a gala bingo leaflet on the stand.

All players must be over 18.
