June is an important month for the bingo world, as it plays host to one of the most prestigious bingo website award ceremonies in the industry – the Which Bingo Awards. June 9th saw the ceremony kick off with lots of big wins for different networks and sites. Here is everything you need to know about the ceremony, including some of the most notable winners to watch out for.
The ceremony, which was sponsored by paysafecard, kicked off in style on board the HMS president (1918), which is found in the Victoria Embankment in London. Right from the off, there was one site who obviously had plenty to be excited about. Jackpot Joy swept the floor, bagging Best Online Bingo site, best Online Bingo chat team and Best Online Bingo Promotion with their Jackpot Hero promo. Also in the category for Best Online Bingo site was Foxy Bingo in second place, and Sun Bingo in Third. Given that Sun Bingo is also a Gamesys site, no doubt they will be very happy with that top three.
When it came to the best new bingo site category, Betway was a clear winner, beating both Lucky Rainbow Bingo and Lucky Charm Bingo to the top spot. Gala Bingo and Mecca Bingo also did well, with Gala managing to bag Best Mobile Bingo Experience, whilst Mecca was able to enjoy Most Socially Responsible Bingo site.
Gamesys Bingo Sites
Finally, Gamesys themselves won Best Online Bingo software, rounding off the ceremony with a huge success. So what is it that makes Gamesys bingo sites so special?
Founded in 2001, Gamesys powers relatively few online bingo sites, when compared with other bingo operators. You therefore might assume that they are not a particularly big player in the online gambling industry, but you would be wrong, as demonstrated by the results of last night’s ceremony. With Gamesys, there is definitely an impression of quality over quantity, as they provide unique offers and games to players on their sites.
For a start, in terms of the variety of games offered, Gamesys really do have the rest beat. Possible because, when they first started, they were not initially planning on focussing on bingo, instead making slots and casino games their main speciality. This can be seen their unique approach to slots games development, as their sites often offer exclusive slots games which you can’t play anywhere else. However, as the popularity of bingo games became more and more pronounced, the company began moving their focus over to bingo apps. This was definitely a good move for the company, as now their bingo games are some of the most popular available on the web. This is perhaps because, like their slots games, Gamesys bingo games are always finding new ways of offering something a little bit different to their players creating unique versions of custom games which will attract both bingo newbies and bingo veterans from other sites. These include lesser known 80 ball games, which some players may not have ever had the chance to play before. It usually helps that they regularly run fairly interesting promotions which offer very high value prizes.
In terms of design and interface, Gamesys sites are usually quite easy to use and follow a bright and attractive colour scheme. The navigation is very simple and user friendly, which means that new players are more likely to stick with them. A really good advantage for a bingo site to have is to be attractive and easy to find your way around, as it means that players associate them with fun and low stress.
If you haven’t tried a Gamesys site before, we’d definitely recommend them. Enjoy.
