British online bingo site guide WhichBingo.co.uk has awarded JackpotJoy.com with its Bingo Site of The Year prize while giving BingoPlayground.co.uk its New Bingo Site of The Year honour.
The annual awards cut across the whole online bingo spectrum and have been designed to give relatively small sites the opportunity to compete with bigger operators. Voting took place last month and players were able to nominate any one of over 240 existing UK sites, not just a pre-selected short-list, as well as on international sites.
'WhichBingo.co.uk Bingo Site of the Year 2008, it's a fantastic achievement,” said Noel Hayden, Chief Executive Officer for GameSys, owners of JackpotJoy.com.
“I've got a brilliant group of people working for JackpotJoy.com and the best chat hosts in the business. We are all delighted with this award.'
WhichBingo.co.uk stated that its awards are recognised as the online bingo industry's most prestigious and longest-running honours. This was the sixth annual edition of WhichBingo.co.uk’s prizes and the third year of the UK-only awards with voters turning out in record numbers.
'2008 has been a remarkable year for online bingo,” said Phil Fraser, owner of WhichBingo.co.uk.
“Our annual awards give players their opportunity to tell bingo sites who they think is delivering the best in entertainment, value and prizes.
“Congratulations go not only to our winners but to all the sites that came in the top ten of each award.'
BingoBilly.com was announced as the winner of the International Online Bingo Site Of The Year 2008 gong with the Cyprus and UK registered site stating that it was ‘honoured’ to have been recognised.
