As awards events go they don’t come much larger than life than those held by WhichBingo.co.uk and this year they seem to have pulled out all the stops to make this the biggest and best the bingo industry has to offer.\r\n\r\nIt was held at a spectacular venue in London that had breathtaking views of the Thames, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and much more and the skyline lit up as night fell. The view was all well and good, but as the crowd was made up almost entirely of bodies related to the list of finalists up for awards their attention was drawn to the awards lined up on the stage.\r\n\r\nThe big winner of the night in every respect was Jackpotjoy. This well established giant of a bingo site took the main award of the night – Best Online Bingo Site, but also managed to walk away with the award for Best Online Bingo Promotion for its Fiat 500 giveaway and the one for Online Bingo Game of the Year for its Game Show Bingo.\r\n\r\nAnother site that did really well was Sun Bingo. This popular bingo site took away two of the 10 awards on the night and coincidentally operates on the same Gamesys software as Jackpotjoy, but most of the bingo games and the whole look of the site is totally different to its stablemate. Sun Bingo took the awards for Best Online Bingo Chat Team and Best Online Bingo TV ad.\r\n\r\nGiven that Gamesys software sites did so well it was something of a surprise to learn that it was in fact Virtue Fusion that took the award for Best Online Bingo Software, but no less well deserved.\r\n\r\nThe honour of being Best New Bingo Site out of more than 50 originally nominated went to Bubble Bonus Bingo, while its stablemate Iceland Bingo took the honour of Best Boutique Online Bingo Site – that’s on the big boys can’t get their hands on.\r\n\r\nThe award for Most Socially Responsible Bingo Site was a bit of a surprise to many as it was expected that tombola would win this hands down. However, the public spoke and following a very strong nomination from Paddy Power Bingo their players backed them up and they went on to walk away with the award held high.\r\n\r\nLast but not least and one of the most wanted awards of the night given the growth in the field in the last 18 months was the award for Best Mobile Bingo Experience. This was won by Mecca Bingo and they were ecstatic to say the least.\r\n\r\nIt appears that a great night was had by all and no doubt many bingo sites will be pulling out all the stops to ensure they make the shortlist next year for the chance to walk away a WhichBingo winner.
