The craziest talent show ever to exist is making a return for a second series later this month and soon, we won’t only be able to watch, we will be able to play, all thanks to an exclusive deal struck between SkillOnNet and Bandicoot TV. It was back in January when we were treated to a bonkers performance by many masked celebrities with voices as loud as their outfits. Who’d have thought dressing up and singing songs would provide endless entertainment, but it does, with viewers and panel judges taking a punt at who they think is hiding beneath the outfit.
SkillOnNet, the platform provider behind some of the world’s biggest casinos has secured a major product licensing partnership to not only launch new The Masked Singer UK branded games, but a thrilling new bingo room too and it coincides with ITV’s new series of the hit show on December 26th, and it’s rumored the line-up is to include an alien, sausage, bush baby, dragon, seahorse, badger, Viking, robin, blob, Harlequin, swan and a grandfather clock.
Bingo’s Got Talent:
The deal will see SkillOnNet launching exclusive branded games which are set to include a bingo room, a slot game and a scratchcard with the bingo room available exclusively to Play OJO Bingo players. The Masked Singer UK scratchcard and slot game will be available across the SkillOnNet network of online casinos shortly.
Michael Golembo from SkillOnNet, said: “The Masked Singer UK is an absolute phenomenon, and we are thrilled to have partnered with Bandicoot to secure the exclusive product licence. The Masked Singer UK Games Site will capture the glitz and glamour of the show and combine it with our market-leading casino technology to deliver a truly unique player experience. The Masked Singer UK bingo room will also help drive brand awareness for Play OJO bingo and the other casinos on our network will have the slot game and the scratchcard which will help build awareness to the Masked Singer UK Games Site. This is an incredible partnership and one that will further establish SkillOnNet, Play OJO and the other brands on our network as the absolute leaders in the market.”
Series 1 saw a star-studded line-up of celebs go head-to-head as they tried their very best to stay clear of the elimination process with Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Ken Jeong and Rita Ora among those aiming to uncover who the stars really are. Queen Bee (Nicola Roberts, the ex-Girls Aloud bandmate) put in a strong performance from the very start and the singer saw off competition from the butterfly (Patsy Palmer), pharaoh (rt Hon Alan Johnson), chameleon (Justin Hawkins), the tree (Teddy Sheringham MBE), Daisy (Kelis), the duck (Skin), unicorn (Jake Shears), fox (Denise Van Outen), monster (CeeLo Green), octopus (Katherine Jenkins) and the hedgehog (Jason Manford), to be crowned the winner!
There is already an air of excitement brewing ahead of the second series and that excitement is set to soar with players now able to immerse themselves fully into a new gaming world based on a major singing phenomenon! Bandicoot spokesperson said: “We are pleased to partner with SkillOnNet on an exclusive product licencing deal as this magical, madcap and monster hit entertainment show returns for a second series of TV’s greatest guessing game this Christmas.”
