It's awards time again in the world of online bingo. Which Bingo will once again be naming the great and the good on June 12th at the Online Bingo & Slots Summit. This year is the 5th time for the awards and Heart Bingo will be hoping to retain the title of Best Online Bingo Site. However, their rivals have a few tricks up their sleeves as they hope to sway the vote.
To encourage you to cast an all important vote a number of brands are offering incentives. The incentives vary from free bingo sessions through to a bingo bonus. We doubt these incentives will make you vote against your favourite site but you just never know! So we took a quick look to see just who's doing what to try and get their paws on those prestigous awards.
Mecca Bingo are up for three awards, Best Site, Best Chat Team and Best Playtech Site. If they win just one award then there will be a free all day bingo session on the 14th June. To qualify for this room you need to vote for Mecca Bingo. However we're not clear how you let Mecca know you've voted or how they'll know you've voted.
Worth noting is that this promotion is only open to residents of England, Scotland and Wales. The free bingo session will offer up to £1400 in prizes and as far as we're aware these prizes will be paid in cash. Players will be notified of the free bingo session on the 13th June 2018.
£1 Bingo Bonus
Taking on Mecca in the same three award categories are Betfred Bingo. They're giving all players who vote for them a £1 bingo bonus. Although you're going to have to work hard to get it. First of all you'll need to vote! Once you've voted you then need to screenshot the voting page and thanks page at Which Bingo.
The screenshots then need to be emailed to Betfred so that they can award you the £1 bonus. Note that the £1 bingo bonus is subject to 1x wagering requirements before any winnings accrued as a result of bonus wagering convert into cash. It's a lot of effort for a quid, but worth it if you want to give Betfred your vote.
Free Bingo Sessions
Following in the footsteps of Mecca Bingo are Coral, Ladbrokes and Sun Bingo. We suspect that Gala will follow suit too. All are offering free bingo sessions provided that the respective brands win one or more awards. Unlike Mecca though, Coral, Ladbrokes and Sun Bingo have made it easy to qualify for the free sessions - should they arise.
If Coral or Ladbrokes win then a free bingo session will take place on the 13th June. To access the room you'll need to use the code WHICHBINGO for Coral (8.30pm) and WHICHAWARDS for Ladbrokes (9.30pm). The code for Sun Bingo is SUNBINGO and their free session will run between 7pm and 8pm - also on the 13th June 2018. As far as we understand all players who enter these codes can access the sessions!
If you decide to vote in the Which Bingo Awards then you'll notice a few omissions. Given their treatment of affiliates in 2017 it's perhaps not a surprise that Sky Bingo or Foxy Bingo, both previous winners, are no where to be seen. Both brands are no longer endorsed by Which Bingo so it's pretty unlikely they'd be happy giving them an award.
However, a bigger surprise is that Tombola are no where to be seen in as a nomination in any of the categories. We wonder whether no one from Britain's Biggest Bingo site filled in the nomination form? Tombola's omission should be good news for all other nominees. We'll find out who takes the 2018 titles on June 12th 2018.
