FreeBingo At The Awards
Earlier this year, FreeBingo.co.uk was nominated for an award at the annual Insider Yorkshire Digital Awards. These prestigious awards, now in their 9th year, aim to recognise the initiative, skill and creativity of Yorkshire-based online businesses.
Last night, FreeBingo manager WayneH (pictured) and all the FreeBingo staff turned out in style as the grand gala awards ceremony was held at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds.
Wayne and the team were all delighted when it was announced that FreeBingo had made the shortlist for one of the most popular categories – BEST ENTERTAINMENT WEBSITE – alongside 4 other websites.
The atmosphere at the FreeBingo table was tense as the winner was announced, but unfortunately FreeBingo was pipped to the post by the BBC’s ’The State Within’ website.
Despite this disappointment, WayneH and all the team were overjoyed just to have made the shortlist and were very proud runners up.
“I couldn’t believe it when the shortlist was announced and FreeBingo appeared on the giant screen! To be up there alongside two BBC websites, with all their resources, was a fantastic achievement. I am very proud of all our staff, VCMs and players.” Said WayneH.
After the ceremony, CM Charlie persuaded the hosts to put the FreeBingo homepage back on the big screen for a final photo opportunity (see above).
