Experience the thrilling fusion of “Heneral” John Arcilla, the acclaimed actor who has brought immense pride to the Philippines with his acting prowess, as he takes the reins of the upcoming TV5 game show, “SPINGO.” Teaming up with the enchanting Spingorgeous Girl, Sam Coloso, as his co-host, SPINGO promises to deliver a one-of-a-kind game show extravaganza. This show boasts trivia-based challenges and dynamic gameplay that not only provide contestants with exciting opportunities but also captivate viewers, offering them a shot at winning substantial cash prizes. As the show’s tagline echoes, “Sa bawat spin, go for the win!”—each spin of the wheel opens the door to a world of potential fortune.
For John Arcilla, who is best known for his versatile acting roles in theater, television, and cinema, hosting SPINGO marks a fresh and exhilarating departure from his usual career trajectory. He readily admits that stepping into the live interaction with contestants and audiences was initially challenging, demanding consistent energy and dedication to ensure maximum entertainment value for viewers. However, the fulfillment he derived from seeing the teaser and the opportunity to explore his TV hosting skills made it all worthwhile. John embraces this significant challenge with excitement, eagerly anticipating the entire Philippines spinning and engaging with SPINGO for their chance to win enticing prizes.
Starting September 11, 2023, at 5:30 pm on weekdays, SPINGO will offer an interactive viewing experience for its audience. Each SPINGO episode will feature three studio contestants equipped with their own Bingo digital tubes. These contestants must collect numbered balls across three thrilling rounds. At the outset of each round, the roulette wheel’s spin determines the amount added to the digital prize pot. The first contestant to amass 15 balls secures a spot in the Final Round and the opportunity to claim the entire prize pot and more.
For viewers at home, joining the excitement is as easy as downloading the SPINGO app from the Google Play Store. After a successful registration, they will receive e-pins via SMS, granting access to digital SPINGO cards. Then, they can eagerly mark off their cards while watching the show. Victory awaits those who collect 15 matching numbers from the pool of numbers collected by all three studio contestants before the host announces the conclusion of the home game. With a chance to win ₱100,000, SPINGO ensures that everyone can partake in the thrill and excitement of the game show from the comfort of their homes.
