WhichBingo has announced the nominations for their annual awards ceremony, and one major name has been dropped from the listings.
Foxy Bingo, which won Dragonfish Site of the Year at the 2016 Awards, is missing from all categories, following site owner Bwin’s decision to cut all ties with affiliates earlier this year.
Costa Bingo and Wink Bingo will be hoping to profit from this decision, as they look favourites to pick up the Dragonfish Site of the Year award this time around.
Which other sites should scoop awards at this year’s ceremony? We put our in-depth review system to the test, and came up with these results.
Best Microgaming Bingo Site
32Red Bingo leads the way in our ratings with a 76% score. However, the site has not been nominated for a WhichBingo award this year, so Dream Bingo (75%) just beats out Betway Bingo (71%) to take it.
Winner: 32Red Bingo (76%)
Best Cozy Games Bingo Site
In our site listings, GameVillage Bingo tops the Cozy Games category with an 80% review score. From WhichBingo’s list, Igloo Bingo just tops the rest with a 71% score.
Winner: GameVillage Bingo (80%)
Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site
Winner: Rocket Bingo/Charming Bingo (62%)
Best PlayTech Bingo Site
There’s a clear winner in this category for OnlineBingo. Gala Bingo is the top bingo site in our categories, and with good reason - it has a huge 96% rating. It scooped three top awards in 2016 too, so don’t be surprised if it adds to that haul in 2017.
Winner: Gala Bingo (96%)
Best Dragonfish Bingo Site
From the nominations, Wink Bingo is the clear winner, according to our reviews. It scored 87% overall, which tops runner-up Costa Bingo (76%) by some distance. However, according to our data, 888Ladies is the best Dragonfish Bingo site around - it received a 91% rating from our review team!
Winner: 888Ladies (91%)
Best Slots Site
We have another tie at the top of our Best Slot/Casino Site section. Grosvenor Casino and 32Red Casino both scored 96% in our reviews, making them clear winners. LeoVegas and Ladbrokes Casino (both 93%) made it a close race though.
Winner: Grosvenor Casino/32Red Casino (96%)
Best New Online Bingo Site
Katie’s Bingo fully deserves to be crowned Best New Online Bingo Site for 2017, according to our data. The site scored an impressive 84%, putting it well above the likes of Big Tease Bingo (76%) and Blighty Bingo (73%).
Winner: Katie’s Bingo (84%)
Best Online Bingo Site
Finally, we come to the grand prize, and fittingly, it’s the closest contest of all. Gala Bingo tops the charts with a 96% score, just beating out Sun Bingo (96%), bet365 Bingo (93%) and Jackpotjoy (93%), but all four sites would be worthy of the award.
Winner: Gala Bingo (96%)
