Online bingo players will be eager to learn the results of this year’s WhichBingo UK Awards. The 2008 ‘Site of the Year’ and ‘New Site of the Year’ have been announced, after a vigorous search through hundreds of bingo websites.
Online UK bingo rooms of all caliber were put through the test, allowing “minnows” the same opportunity to win as the leading websites in the industry. In the end, the results came down to a vote in December, where bingo players were given the chance to voice their opinion. A total of more than 240 UK websites were included in the voting process, as well as international bingo rooms.
As a result, WhichBingo UK has awarded Jackpotjoy the honor of ‘UK Online Bingo Site of the Year 2008. Bingo Playground received the ‘UK New Online Bingo Site of the Year 2008’ award, and Bingo Billy, the ‘International Online Bingo Site of the Year 2008.’
“WhichBingo Site of the Year 2008 – it’s a fantastic achievement – I’ve got a brilliant group of people working for Jackpotjoy and the best chat hosts in the business. We are delighted with this award,” said Noel Hayden, Jackpotjoy CEO.
The WhichBingo awards are the longest-running in the industry. 2008 marks the sixth year of this tradition, as well as the highest voter turnout. “2008 has been a remarkable year for online bingo. Our annual awards give players their opportunity to tell bingo sites who they think is delivering the best in entertainment, value and prizes,” said Phil Fraser of WhichBingo. “Congratulations go not only to our winners but to all the sites that came in the top 10 of each award.”
