LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Las Vegas mobile developer PLAYSTUDIOS (Nasdaq: MYPS) has enlisted one of the biggest, brightest personalities in Hollywood as it enters the popular Bingo genre. Multiple award-winning actress and host of NBC’s wildly popular reboot of The Weakest Link Jane Lynch takes center stage in the free-to-play myVEGAS Bingo mobile app. Lynch will begin her limited run as myVEGAS Bingo’s first “Celebrity Caller” on September 15, bringing an exciting new dimension to the new PLAYSTUDIOS game. Players will hear Lynch call bingo numbers, celebrate big wins, and inject her signature dry wit into the energetic action.
The partnership also allows players to unlock new Jane Lynch collectible badges as they play their way through the game, and they can exchange loyalty points for exclusive Jane Lynch merchandise, including her celebrated holiday album, A Swingin’ Little Christmas, along with other treats through the myVIP loyalty program. Additionally, players can use their loyalty points to direct charitable contributions to Direct Relief, one of the organizations that Lynch supports that provides emergency medical assistance and disaster relief in the United States and internationally.
“As a celebrated entertainer and comedian, Jane Lynch’s outsized personality makes her a natural-born Bingo caller,” says PLAYSTUDIOS Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Pascal. “We knew she’d be an excellent addition to our game because you never know what she’s going to say, you just know it’s going to be hilarious.
“We’re incredibly proud to have her join our PLAYSTUDIOS family as the first celebrity face of our myVEGAS Bingo app.”
“It was a blast collaborating with the team at PLAYSTUDIOS on their newest mobile app and a fun way to support one of the charitable organizations that I work with,” commented Lynch. “And hey, should this acting thing dry up, I could absolutely see a bright future for myself working the Sunbelt Bingo circuit.”
Lynch, who recorded nearly four hours of dialogue for myVEGAS Bingo, is best known for her Emmy Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Golden Globe winning portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee. She is currently the host of Weakest Link and two-time Emmy Award-winning host of NBC's Hollywood Game Night. Additional television credits include The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Criminal Minds, Party Down, and Two And A Half Men. Lynch's film credits include The Three Stooges, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Role Models, Julie & Julia, A Mighty Wind, and Best in Show. Her holiday album, A Swingin' Little Christmas, is available from iTunes, Amazon, and other outlets.
