For dedicated gamers, spending hours at a time sitting playing video games is commonplace. Whether it’s streaming to a loyal audience, raiding into the early hours with the squad, or simply a means to unwind at the end of a busy day, many of us will happily whittle down the hours playing video games in the comfort of our home. This is why FandomSpot has launched a competition to reveal the best home gaming setup.

Alongside a passion for gaming, whether it be on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, or one of the plethora of retro consoles available from generations past, many gamers have a habit of pimping up their gaming setups to ensure their sessions are done in style and comfort.

From PC’s with elaborate lighting illuminating the desk in an orange hue, to ceiling mounted projectors broadcasting gameplay twenty-foot wide, FandomSpot wants to see where you do your gaming, and crown one lucky gamer the owner of The Best Gaming Setup.

It doesn’t matter if you have a custom, hand built desk, dual screens surrounded by Funko Pops, or even a gaming den hidden beneath the stairs; any gamer from the UK or US is invited to enter and share with FandomSpot their setup for the chance to take the title and win a gaming voucher to spend on console or PC.

The prize: The winning entrant will receive $250 (or £ equivalent*) of gaming vouchers for the platform of their choice (subject to availability).

To enter, simply click on the link below, submit a photo of your gaming setup and fill in a little information about yourself.

The competition closes on the 28th March 2021, so make sure you enter your gaming setup now if you want to be crowned the owner of The Best Gaming Setup.

*For circumstances where a UK resident is named winner, we will take the exchange rate value of $250, on the date the competition closes.

Alyssa Celatti at and video game expert comments:

“Every gamer is guilty of staying up way too late playing video games—even to the point where it’s affected our work or school—but whether we’re playing with our buddies or getting invested into an epic storyline, marathon gaming sessions wouldn’t be possible without a comfortable gaming setup.

“It doesn’t matter if you play at a desk with a mouse and keyboard, or sink back into a comfortable couch with a gamepad, we want to see everyone’s gaming setup and crown one as the best, rewarding the winner with a voucher they can redeem on even more games, and further excuses to stay in their epic setup!”

Mischievous betting brand Paddy Power presents an eyebrow raising ‘drama with balls’ after teaming up with creative agency Octagon for their latest ad campaign. 

“Bingoton” was formally rolled out in a fashion befitting the brand’s proverbial bingo debutante today (23rd September).  

Written and art directed by Jonny Watson, Dan Harrison and Neil Richardson of Octagon UK, and directed by Jim Gilchrist of Outsider, the 30-second TVC will get its first showing on ITV this evening during Coronation Street.  

The commercial takes viewers back to the early 19th century, with Miss Bingoton and her lady-in-waiting assessing a selection of ‘gentlemen callers’, cleverly creating a humorous parallel with the perils of modern-day dating.  

According to Josh Green, Executive Director at Octagon, this was the ideal comical conduit to convey the Paddy Power Bingoproposition:  

“In the simplest terms, bingo is drama with balls. That’s how the idea of Bingoton was born.” 

Tom Muldowney, Head of Gaming Marketing with Paddy Power adds:   

“We wanted to make a ballsy ad and Miss Bingoton felt like the perfect leading lady to convey our ‘more chances’ message. That’s with the exception of the Suitor who sent her (Charles) Dickens pix. He remains on the cutting room floor.”    

The advert opens with stunning views of high society types gathering at the palatial grounds of Bingoton Manor. Centre stage is Miss Bingoton, who is joined by her lady-in-waiting and Master of Ceremonies, all of whom eagerly anticipate a parade of potential suitors for her viewing pleasure.   

Suitor Number 10 gets the (bingo) balls rolling. But he’s quickly dismissed by Miss Bingoton who instructs her footmen to “swipe left” on her behalf.   

  Suitor Number 3 is quickly dispatched in an equally decisive manner, having been judged by Miss B to be “catfishing again” after she takes in his dated and unrecognizable profile painting.  

Trying his luck next is Suitor Number 66, a handsome gentleman from Essex who only has eyes for his own reflection.   

“The only way is EXIT,” she giggles under her breath to her lady-in-waiting.  

Paddy Power’s latest campaign comes with all the easter eggs punters have come to expect from the mischievous brand, who manages to marry drama (and balls) to make it a perfect match.

Turbo Mode in the Game ‘Mines’ is On – Fasten the Seat Belts



Reading Time: < 1 minute


Classics are eternal, but classics with new improvements are captivating. One of the first
Turbo games has undergone visual and functional changes and has transformed into one
more game Turbo Mines.

The Head of Product at Turbo Games says:

“Visually, this is the successor to the super hit of our classic Mines. We are a young
progressive team that improves our product regularly, but not just observes what works
well. There is no limit to perfection, especially when you can change quickly and
qualitatively to open an even wider potential of Turbo hit.”

What does it mean for the players?

The rules remain the same as in Mines, but some additional features modify the perception
of the interface and the game pace.

Firstly, it is possible to change the game field size: to 3*3, 5*5, 7*7, and 9*9. Such
modification gives a player a chance to work on their strategy and choose the risk rate. So
to say, every round can be absolutely different from all points of view.

Secondly, those players who enjoy speed can experience it in Turbo Mines too. Such a
function enables a player to choose the same pattern for opening the blocks for many
rounds in a row. If a player sticks to the strategy that they believe in, they will win for sure
because dripping water wears away a stone not with its strength but with its constancy.
But there is no need to wait, do it in Turbo mode with Turbo Mines.
