WhichBingo UK (http://www.whichbingo.co.uk ) has announced the results of the annual search for the online bingo 'Site of the Year' and 'New Site of the Year'.

The awards cut across the whole online bingo spectrum, giving 'minnows' the chance to compete with the 'big boys'. The vote took place during December and bingo players were able to vote for any one of the 240+ existing UK sites, not just a pre-selected short-list, as well as all the international sites.

In addition, Bingo Billy has been named 'International Online Bingo Site of the Year 2008'.

The WhichBingo Site of the Year awards are the online bingo industry's most prestigious and longest-running awards. This was the sixth year of the WhichBingo awards and the third year of the UK-only awards, with voters turning out in record numbers.

Noel Hayden, CEO of Jackpotjoy owners Gamesys, said of the award: "WhichBingo Site of the Year 2008 - it's a fantastic achievement - I've got a brilliant group of people working for Jackpotjoy and the best chat hosts in the business. We are all delighted with this award."

WhichBingo owner Phil Fraser said: "2008 has been a remarkable year for online bingo. Our annual awards give players their opportunity to tell bingo sites who they think is delivering the best in entertainment, value and prizes." He added: "Congratulations go not only to our winners but to all the sites that came in the top 10 of each award."
