LONDON, December 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
The much anticipated 2012 Bingoport.co.uk Players' Choice Awards nominees have been published on the online bingo authority's website this morning.
The Bingoport.co.uk Players' Choice Awards are now in their 4th year and are the longest running and most respected players' choice awards in the online bingo industry. The awards are voted on by genuine online bingo players, represented by Bingoport's large and loyal membership base and their votes are unequivocally impartial.
The highly coveted award of Best Overall Online Bingo Operator is open to all sites listed in the online bingo community portal's site reviews, which currently include over 200 online bingo operators. Industry heavyweight, Foxy Bingo, has claimed this illustrious prize three years running, but will face stiff competition from an expanding number of new sites and familiar favourites.
Other categories include Best Online Bingo TV Advertisement, which sees a record number of 11 nominees this year, indicating that TV advertising is still a significant money spinner for bingo operators in the UK. Nominees include Sky Bingo, Jackpot Joy, Cheeky Bingo and Brits Bingo, who caused a stir with a revealing cameo from Gavin Henson.
Competition will be fierce for the Best New Online Bingo Site category, with popular newcomers, X Bingo and Wonder Bingo expected to poll well in the voting, while the Best Chat Host Team award will again provide greatly appreciated recognition to the best Chat Host team in the industry. Last year's winners, Tombola, will be hoping they can get the votes on the board to make it two in a row.
The bingo marketing departments will be hoping to receive recognition for their efforts with victory in the Best Online Bingo Promotion category. Nominees this year include William Hill Bingo with their "Win a Car a Day" promotion and newcomer Diva Bingo, with their hugely popular, "Free Handbags for Everyone" promotion.
Voting on all 5 award categories is open now and will run until December 31, with the winners to be presented with their dazzling crystal trophies in January. For a full list of nominees and to cast your vote, visit bingoport.co.uk/bingo/awards/ today.
