Following on from my moan about the pointless Which Bingo Awards earlier this month, it’s refreshing to see another large online bingo portal come up with something a bit closer to the kind of awards I’d like to see for the industry. The BingoPort.co,uk Player’s Choice Awards is open to the site’s large membership to vote on winners. Unlike the Which Bingo awards which is a free for all, the team at BingoPort created the shortlist for their players to vote on, based on a more rounded and overarching view of what’s been happening in the online bingo world.
I have to say that for my money, they are a lot closer to what my personal list of sites would have been than the final results of the Which Bingo Awards. What’s more, the winners of the votes will be announced on Friday night at an awards ceremony as a part of the 2009 CAP Euro event, an affiliate focused summit for people in the online bingo and wider gaming industry. As it happens, I’ll be attending the awards on Friday night, so I’ll try to get some photos and report back on the event when I’ve done. Should be a fun night, I’m looking forward to it.
