Foxy Bingo Advert are advertisements for the Foxy Bingo web site that people seem to either love or hate.

We are of the opinion that every viewer and bingo player should make up their own mind, and that’s why we created foxybingoadverts.com – to give you a crash course in Foxy Bingo advert so that you can decide for yourself which camp you belong in.
Foxy Gets Naked
On Valentine’s Day 2012 Foxy Bingo revealed more than just a new commercial to advertise three special promotional free bingo games; the well-known mascot for this online bingo brand stripped down to his birthday suit, a storyboard voted for by the Foxy Bingo Facebook fans! The commercial offers a Benny Hill type comedy value and featured none of the three main ingredients of generic commercials for bingo online…. More...

He's Back advert from Foxy Bingo

In the week leading up to the launch of the new Foxy marketing campaign the company behind the fox, Cashcade, chose to release a 10 second teaser.

Foxy Adverts Proven to be Memorable
We all know that Foxy Bingo adverts are memorable, but now that fact has been proven beyond all doubt. An Adwatch survey conducted in September 2008 by TNS asked 1,000 adults how many television commercials they remembered seeing from a list of twenty. 47% of respondents remembered one or more adverts for Foxy Bingo, making it the third most memorable brand.

ASA Clears Foxy Bingo Advert
In July 2008, Foxy Bingo was the subject of a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The complaint was lodged by just one person, who “challenged whether the 'Foxy' character [seen on Foxy Bingo adverts] would be likely to appeal to children.”
The complaint was related to an advert in which Foxy struts down a street in his suit and women emerge from shops to follow him to a party. The advert clearly stated: “Terms and conditions apply. Over 18's only” and gave the web site address for “gambleaware.co.uk”. At the end of the advert, on-screen text announced: “Foxy Bingo.com £10 Free! £10 for game play. No deposit required”. More...

Foxy Bingo Mega-Jackpots
Whilst glamour models, television adverts, fast cars (well, long ones) and chat show sponsorship are all good for getting attention, the best way to attract players to a bingo site in their droves is to offer them big money. Foxy thought of this before we wrote it, and in April 2008 launched a MEGA Guaranteed Jackpots .
The guaranteed jackpots meant that £100,000 would be paid out over seven days to players in the Jump n Jive, Lucky Starts, Tally Ho Bingo and Tippy’s Ten bingo rooms. The jackpot sessions started every night at 9pm and the high point was scheduled for Friday 25th April with the payout of a massive £10,000 prize.
As far as we know, jackpot winners were not obligated to throw their bloomers in the air.
Since then Foxy extended the idea to the whole of May with £500,000 being given away in a similar manner to the April Promo.
Foxy Bingo Advert Gets Parodied
The Foxy Bingo adverts made for television have not only been criticised, they have also been parodied. Thanks to YouTube and similar web sites, people have been able to create their own adverts that poke fun at Foxy in subtle and not-so subtle ways.
One brilliant parody is an edited version of the 2007 advert, and shows Foxy going about his business and getting what now look like sly glances from some of the women nearby. At the end of the advert, a gunman appears from nowhere as Foxy is walking through the park, and a single shot brings the suited mascot – and the advert – to a premature end.
The face of Foxy himself has changed over time, and his latest incarnation is a lot more appealing than his original one. Yes, he’s still a humanoid fox in a purple suit, but he’s far less likely to scare young children that he was a few years ago, and he comes across more like an eccentric uncle than a member of Slipknot.
Today’s Foxy has a friendly northern accent, which goes some way to making his “aristocratic” manner a lot less prominent. It’s also made him more successful with the ladies too, if the difference between Foxy Bingo adverts in 2007 and 2008 are anything to go by...
The Foxy Future
What does the future hold for Foxy Bingo adverts? The only way to find out is to wait and see, but we predict that Foxy will be on our screens for a long time to come. He will no doubt make a lot of new friend and also attract a lot more criticism, but the same can be said for almost all television celebrities. When all is said and done, Foxy Bingo adverts do exactly what they set out to do – raise the profile of their excellent online bingo site and raise a smile at the same time.
