Bob Manwaring from our Middlesbrough Club is our Caller Of The Year.
He beat off the competition from four other regional Buzz Bingo heat winners to be named the Buzz Bingo Presenter of the Year and he went on to represent us at the National Bingo Game Caller of the Year final.
Bob is known as the ‘Jackpot King’ at his club. He loves calling so much that he semi-retired as Middlesbrough’s Club Manager so he could pursue his passion for presenting. He has been the club’s main Bingo Presenter for the past 15 years now and during this time, he has given away a number of big jackpots, including a huge £250,000 combined total on just one day.
During the regional heat, Bob wowed judges with his costume changes during his three minute showcase round. He dressed up as Elvis, the Greatest Showman and even Superwoman to win over the players and add a touch of comedy to his performance.
Commenting on his win, Bob said: “It is an honour to be representing Buzz Bingo at such a large scale. This is the first time I’ve entered a competition like this, so I certainly wasn’t expecting to win the regional heats. I’m thrilled to get as far as the national final – it feels like a great recognition for the club, as well as myself.”
Bob may not have won at the national final, but he’s still our number one!
