Today marks the half-way point in this year’s WhichBingo Awards and one thing is for sure, the competition is really fierce in the biggest category of all – Best Online Bingo Site.

One of the biggest names that is really pushing their players to vote this year is Gala Bingo, and we asked them just what is it that makes Gala Bingo stand out? Why should players vote for them?

Guestlist350x265_easterApr14Easter is a really egg-citing time for the marketing teams at almost every online bingo site you visit – possibly with the egg-ception of the Virtue Fusion bingo sites.

Every Easter offer does not appear to be acceptable unless the adjectives surrounding it can be suffixed with ‘egg’ or ‘eggs’ as hinted at above.

We’ve done a trawl of the eggs-plosion of upcoming Easter deals that we think are worth a look.

Man playing bingo You don’t have to venture very far into the world of bingo and it’s ever expanding universe to notice that it is an industry very much geared towards the fairer sex. Online games given names such as Butterfly Bingo, Bubble Bonus Bingo and Glitter Bingo, to name only a few of the vast swathe of cutesy named bingo bonanzas on offer, have a distinctly feminine gloss.

Italian national flagThe game of bingo is something which we consider synonymous with being British and part of our cultural heritage. Nothing can beat the feeling of visiting your local bingo hall with your family, friends and neighbours to have a laugh, and maybe even win a few quid now and again. As many of you will be aware, the game does also have a global appeal, and a fairly rich international history too. Many of you will know that bingo is popular in both the U.S.A and Canada, however, it is also has a popular appeal across Spain, many South American countries, and Italy to name a few.

Yesterday I wrote a blog looking at six of the 12 finalists in the Best Boutique Bingo Site category at this year’s WhichBingo Awards.

Today it’s time to look at the remaining six that are in contention, and why they made the final cut.

With the WhichBingo Awards now in full swing, it is time to take a closer look at each of the award categories, starting with ‘Best Boutique Online Bingo Site’.

This particular category was introduced to give the relatively smaller bingo brands a chance to be recognised for the great work they do, without being overshadowed by the big guys taking all the plaudits.

Our definition of a ’boutique’ site was “a small to medium sized site, possibly on a network or the bingo arm of a multi-product brand, that despite it’s size demonstrates an ability to provide their players with an excellent online bingo experience.”

There were 12 sites shortlisted in this particular category. In part one we’ll take a look at the first six of those sites, and explain why they made the shortlist.

We cannot tell you how unbelievably excited we are to finally announce this year’s shortlists in the 2014 WhichBingo Awards.

We were absolutely blown away by the response during nominations, with players and operators making good use of the nomination form to explain in detail why they believe their site is the best.

In future posts over the next few weeks I will explain in more detail why each site made the shortlists, but for now here’s a quick overview of all the categories and who is up for an award.

costabingo-melCosta Bingo has been one high profile online bingo site this year and with the release of the news that the brand is once again looking for ad agencies to pitch for the right to produce its next selection of TV ads it is clear that they do not intend to let that profile diminish.

The last round of advertising cost in the region of £10million, contrary to what we assumed last year was to be a total budget across all bgo Entertainment brands announced last year. Of course, as sooon as we saw MelB we should have known that the budget would be blown!

London based agency MWO seems to have done a sterling job with the MelB campaign and met the criteria of making Costa Bingo a household name, but this has not prevented Costa scouring the market again for possible new ideas to further its cause. To be slightly cynical it could also be a way to secure a lower cost from the existing agency as they pitch against others for the same business!

Costa are looking for agencies that can deal with the whole process, from concept and scripting to effective management of the TV campaign and its strategy. The successful agency will have from May until September to put the new campaign together. If it’s as in your face as the last one it should cement Costa Bingo firmly in the mind of anyone who watches tv.

Will this be the end of a wonderful friendship between Costa Bingo and MelB? If so, who would you like to see step into her stilettos?
