2009 Online Bingo Award Nominations Announced

With the 2009 Online Bingo Summit barely weeks away, the nominations have been announced for the 2nd Annual Online Bingo Industry Awards. Interesting to note there’s been some changes in the way the votes will be awarded this year. Following last year’s event I had concerns that the voting for the event was unfair as everyone who attended the summit could vote. This meant big companies with lots of staff at the event had an unfair advantage in the voting.

That’s all changed for the voting this year. Now only 1 voting card is allowed per company, so that should even out the votes and make things a lot fairer. There are also changes with how sites were chosen. This time around companies were able to nominate themselves, then the shortlisting was done by a panel of industry experts. It all seems pretty much as I would hope to see, but a couple of the newcomer awards have got me scratching my head. Here’s the awards categories and the shortlisted sites.
