As with a lot of popular entertainment and gaming brands, the media brand of BSkyB also has its own online bingo site, Sky Bingo, which has been around now for several years. Its games are powered by the popular software platform provided by Virtue Fusion. So with a combination of two great brands online bingo players are guaranteed many hours of safe and enjoyable entertainment.
Sky Bingo offers its new players a 200% free bonus on registration so you can get bingoing as soon as possible!
Bingo Varieties and Side Games
The Virtue Fusion software platform is browser based so you don’t need to have to download any software first before you can play. As soon as you have completed your registration, just click ‘Play’ and away you go.
Whatever your bingo preference is, you will surely find a game to suit as all varieties, 75 ball, 80 ball or 90 ball bingo, are catered for at Sky Bingo. If you like a little dabble on the side, then you are in luck as there are also plenty of Instants, slots and casino based games to choose from as well.
If you’ve missed the day’s news then don’t worry as you can also watch the news, weather, sports and show business headlines in the top left hand side of your screen above the chat room window.
It’s great to see that Sky Bingo has plenty of fabulous promotions to help ease your winter blues away without breaking the bank. You can enjoy a spot of BOGOF ticket offers all day on a Monday, in the Value bingo room as well as in the Premium bingo room on Tuesday’s.
There is a selection of free bingo games on offer every day as well including a free £50 jackpot game which is played at 7.02pm every night in the Value bingo room. Check out the games schedule to find out when these games will be played, so that you don’t miss out on the chance to play these games and win yourself some free bingo money.
Sky Bingo has not one but two happy hours which can be found on Mondays through to Thursdays between the hours of 11am and 12pm and 5pm to 6pm in the Sky Value bingo room. During these hours you’ll find a combination of 1tg & 2tg games, equal chance games, free tickets in the BOGOF and BOG2F games as well as penny bingo games being played.
Big Money Games
Sky Bingo has over £8,000 in guaranteed prize funds to give away daily in its 3 Bingo Linx jackpot games. Tickets cost just 50p each for which you could win £1,500 at 12pm, £2,500 at 6pm and £4,000 at 10.30pm. There is also a monthly £10,000 jackpot game which is played on the last Sunday of the month.
But these are not the only jackpot games as there are also three smaller jackpot games with low ticket prices for which you can pre-buy bingo tickets from the highlights tab.
- 9pm – £100 at a cost of 1p per ticket
- 9.30pm – £250 at a cost of 5p per ticket
- 10pm – £500 at a cost of 10p per ticket
You will also find plenty of progressive jackpots, 6 in total, across the various bingo rooms with the number of calls needed to claim the jackpot varying. When you enter the bingo room you will see the jackpots on offer for that bingo room and details of the qualifying number of calls needed can be obtained from the help pages or by simply asking the chat host on duty.
Bingo Gems Loyalty Program
You don’t need to apply to become a member of the loyalty program, all bingo players automatically qualify. Everyone will start off at the lowest level, Pearl, and will then progress to the additional levels, Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald and Diamond, by earning loyalty points.
Loyalty points are earned on every bingo and mini games that you play. If you want to check to see what level you are or how many points you currently have, you can find out by selecting your loyalty account from the promotions tab in the bingo lobby.
So what do the different levels actually mean? Currently you can exchange your bingo points for bingo bonuses but in the future I suspect that you might qualify for prizes or special games dependent on what loyalty level you are on.
To sum up….
Sky Bingo is going to appeal to players equally of both sexes, there is a good selection of games and promotions that will make this a likely candidate to add to your favourites.
