Motorsport Wins Bingo Jackpot!

Grassroots motorsport will benefit directly from Bingo-Lotto proceeds; a brand new weekly TV game broadcast on digital TV, according to the sport’s governing body.

The Auto Cycle Union (ACU) will be one of the lucky beneficiaries of the game shown on the Challenge and Virgin 1 digital TV channels. Bingo-Lotto is designed to raise money specifically for the sport and the voluntary sector, and the ACU has committed that all proceeds it receives from the game will be used for both base and special project activities.

The game’s introduction to UK TV screens follows Bingo-Lotto’s successful run in Sweden, where it has raised just under £1 billion for charities and sporting organizations in its 17 years on the air. the country. To enter the game, players must first buy tickets from outlets across the UK and then play along in front of their TV. Game organizers claim that players have a 1 in 9.5 chance of winning a prize, with the top prize being a £100,000 jackpot.

At least 20% of the cost of each ticket sold will be given to selected governing and representative bodies of sport and leisure in the UK, including the ACU. The motorsports governing body says it will focus on using the money to improve infrastructure, as well as grassroots level, for which it receives no funding from other sources.

In return, the ACU promotes the game to its members and also participates in the TV show, highlighting how the proceeds from the show have been spent. In addition, current and predicted future stars from Motorcycle Sport will also appear on the show.

Given the game’s phenomenal success in Scandinavia, the ACU expects a significant contribution from profits, and Chairman Jim Parker believes this will make a big difference to the organization’s members. He looks forward to the proceeds from the game allowing many more people to enjoy and participate in motorsport.

Founded in 1903 with the aim of developing and promoting motorsport in the United Kingdom, the ACU is now the independent and official governing body for the sport. In addition to regulating and promoting the sport it also provides a range of benefits to its members including; cheap hotel stays, discounted car rental and off-road bicycle insurance with a discount. Now, with the anticipated cash injection from Bingo lotto, it hopes to raise its profile and raise awareness of the motor sport.
