As the entertainment industry veteran and most sought after game show host on Philippine television, Luis Manzano has undoubtedly managed to make a name for himself for his natural talent and unique style in animation, not to mention of his easy humor, charisma and lively banter between co-hosts and guests. But beyond these traits, it is also a fact that Manzano has won the love and respect of the public because of his sincere compassion, his effortless way of making people happy and his willingness to help. those who need it.
Indeed, for this comprehensive package, gaming franchise holder BingoPlus has chosen him as its very first celebrity endorser. Manzano’s ambassador was aptly launched at the first BingoPlus Day of its kind where Jasper Vicencio, President of AB Leisure Exponent Inc. (ABLE), told the Manila Times Entertainment, “Luis is a familiar face to Filipinos. We all know him as the ‘Pambansang Host’, especially for game shows. It’s always him or his father [Edu]so I guess since we are targeting the younger generation, Luis is really the right fit.”
Aware of Manzano’s request for sponsorships, the manager added: “We are happy to be part of his long list of [representations]which is proof of our commitment to maintaining the integrity of our brand and being among the most trusted brands in the gaming industry.”
It was clear at the gathering that BingoPlus is proud to be the first licensed online bingo game from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor). Powered by groundbreaking technology that brings traditional games to life for those challenged by location or social situations to play at bingo destinations, the concept and the company have received overwhelming market support.
To further underscore the integrity, fun and thrill of the varied products BingoPlus offers its customers, management believes that Manzano, at the forefront of the brand, resonates effectively with everything that concerns them.
In response to BingoPlus’ warm and enthusiastic welcome, the affable 41-year-old showbiz scion said: “I’m very happy to have been chosen as the first celebrity to support BingoPlus. The brand’s ability to bring people happiness and keep them yearning for greater things is exactly why I’m in the entertainment business.
“BingoPlus and I both love bringing joy to people and showing them that despite the challenges posed by issues like the pandemic, we can still choose to be mentally active and positive in our thinking. We have so many other things in store for everyone,” Manzano added.
Shortly after its debut on January 17, BingoPlus successfully positioned itself as one of the most promising contributors to the gaming industry. Actively mounting a series of sponsorships, charities and collaborations in just five months, the enthusiasm of its patrons can only continue.
During the lights of the event, Leisure & Resorts World Corporation (LRWC) President Andy Tsui further told the Manila Times that they have seen an increase in traffic since BingoPlus opened, counting 35,000 to 40,000 online players per day.
“It’s fascinating because you see this huge increase in traffic over the last two months. We plan to continue to grow because people know we’re licensed; we’re legit, unlike other online gaming platforms. Mind you, we have 145 stores so far, and due to the pandemic, we’ve transformed BingoPlus into a digitized, user-friendly platform environment that you can play anywhere,” Tsui said.
The remainder of the BingoPlus Day event treated players to a special online concert with performances by Yeng Constantino, Erik Santos and hosts Marco Gumabao, Lance Edward and Ogie Diaz.
Additionally, BingoPlus signed its first major sponsorship deal with the nation’s premier basketball league, the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), making it the respected sports organization’s Official Bingo Partner.
