Guess Who's Been Named Best Proprietary Bingo Site of 2023? (Hint, It's Us!)


As an online casino that puts players at the heart of everything we do, we’re delighted to announce that we scooped the coveted title of ‘Best Proprietary Bingo Site’ in the BingoPort Player’s Choice Awards 2023.  

This year’s BingoPort Awards was the 15th edition and the biggest yet, with over 40,000 votes from real players received to decide the winners – that's a record number of entries! This may not be our first rodeo (we’ve won Best TV Ad, Best Overall Bingo Site and Best Proprietary Bingo Site in the past), but each win feels just as thrilling as the first. So, from us to you – thank you! 

Proprietary software explained 

Here at Jackpotjoy, we want our players to enjoy an exclusive gaming experience packed with chances to win, fun community rooms and exciting free games. This is why we embrace proprietary software – a fancy way of saying we create and use our own software instead of (like many other bingo sites) using the same software you'll come into contact with on many other sites, despite them being different brands. 

But what does this tech talk actually mean? 

Proprietary software is a term used to describe custom-made software, which is a brilliant way to ensure our site looks as fresh as our players (looking at you!) and feels wonderfully ‘Jackpotjoy’ through and through.  

If you’re tired of bingo sites that offer the same playing experience, then proprietary sites are a great solution.  

About the BingoPort Awards 

BingoPort is a review and rewards site offering rewards in the form of ‘Port points’ to online bingo and slots players. Established in 2009, the BingoPort Player’s Choice Awards recognises the very best online bingo and slots casinos in the market.  

Along with an invite to a very fancy awards ceremony (tuxedo, anyone?) attended by some of the biggest names in online gambling, winners also get to bask in the knowledge that their award was voted for by real players. After all, who better to decide which online site deserves to win than their own players? 

There are ten awards up for grabs, with categories such as Best New Site, Best Proprietary Site and Best Overall Site on the table. Nominees are submitted for each category by BingoPort before voting opens in November.  

There are lots of reasons why a site may be nominated in a category, such as a particularly fabulous marketing campaign, dazzling designs, an incredible customer support team, or even a combination of many things. 

Once voting opens, it’s down to the players to vote for their favourite champion. Players can cast just one vote for each category and the competition is fierce! Voting closes in February, when the champions of that year’s BingoPort Awards will be announced. 

Show us some love 

It seems award season is well and truly here since we’re also up for a WhichBingo award. Like BingoPort, WhichBingo is an online site reviewing online bingo and slot casinos in the UK.  

Launched back in the early 2000’s, they’re another big name in the online bingo industry – receiving a WhichBingo award is a sign you’re doing your job really well. We’re pretty proud, therefore, to have won no fewer than eleven WhichBingo awards over the last ten years.  

This year, we’re up for three awards(!): Best Chat Team, Best Bingo Site and Best Proprietary Bingo Site. Fancy showing us some love? Head on over to the WhichBingo site and cast your vote! Voting closes Friday 14th April and every single vote counts. Go on, make our day.
