The 2017 WhichBingo Awards took place at London’s Cafe de Paris on June 21, with Heart Bingo being named best online bingo site and land-based stalwarts Mecca and Gala also performing strongly.

Guests from the online bingo and iGaming industry headed to the iconic West End venue on Wednesday, greeted by the all-girl can-can dance troupe Cabaret Rouge, before enjoying a champagne reception and canapes.

Once seated, the guests, sponsors, judges and hosts were treated to food and a free bar alongside contrasting acts from Cabaret Rouge and entertainer Des O’Connor, before the awards ceremony got underway with WhichBingo’s founder Phil Fraser.

The big winners of the evening were Heart Bingo, which took three awards: Best Online Bingo Community, Best Online Slots Game and the coveted main award, Best Online Bingo Site.

Gala and Mecca both took away two awards, whilst iGaming industry newcomer, Fable Media, also took two awards for its Wow Bingo and Zingo Bingo brands.

Awards were also presented to the best bingo sites by software provider, with representatives from Cozy Software, Dragonfish, Microgaming and Playtech executives in attendance.

Founded in 2000, WhichBingo is an independent online bingo portal, providing reviews and information for players across more than 400 online bingo brands.

This year’s ceremony included, for the first time, two slots-based awards: Best Slots Site (Gala Spins) and Best Online Slots Game (Double Bubble from Heart Bingo).

The Most Socially Responsible Operator Award, judged by a panel of industry experts, was presented to Mecca Bingo by John Hagan, chairman of the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling.

New Bingo Site of the Year went to Ted Bingo, which is powered by Dragonfish and owned by Stride Gaming.

Commenting on this year’s awards, Phil Fraser said: “It is always a pleasure to recognise excellence in online bingo and slots, and these awards yet again reflect that.

“The event itself was a fantastic night and so well attended after the Online Bingo and Slots Summit earlier in the day. It was great to see so many new and old faces enjoying the entertainment and after-party.”
