Until a number of years ago if you mentioned the words The Sun and bingo, people would have thought that you were talking about the weekly bingo card that is handed out by the popular red-topped newspaper. This free card gave readers the opportunity to win cash prizes for completing their bingo cards.
However, like many other established names from the newspaper and other industries, The Sun has its own online bingo site. Originally set up alongside Tombola, Sun Bingo branched out on its own a couple of years ago and now has hundreds of bingo players visiting the site daily to enjoy their favourite game. So what can you expect to find when you come along to play at the site?
First of all you need to set up your bingo account. The registration process is extremely straightforward and only takes a few seconds to complete the form although the hardest bit might be coming up with a unique player name that hasn’t already been taken! Sun Bingo is one of the few online bingo sites where you don’t have to fill in your financial details when you complete the registration.
As is the norm nowadays at the majority of online bingo sites, there is no ‘free’ cash to try out the bingo games before you spend your own money but you will receive an impressive 200% cash match deposit bonus when you credit your account which means that if you fund £10 you will have a total of £30 to buy bingo tickets.
As Sun Bingo is now a standalone bingo site you will find the look and feel of the site completely different from the other bingo sites that belong to a network or use the same software. Sun Bingo uses the Gamesys software platform to provide its bespoke bingo and side games; and although similar in games room appearance and gameplay as some others using the same software, the promotions and look of the Sun Bingo site is something that cannot be found elsewhere.
From the games lobby you have the option to choose whatever variety of bingo games you prefer to play whether that might be 75 ball, 80 ball or 90 ball bingo. Another unique feature at Sun Bingo is the session bingo hours; which are a mix of all the different varieties of bingo games and are played 4 times a day, morning, afternoon, evening as well as the twilight hour. You can purchase tickets in advance for each of the bingo sessions at a saving of the normal ticket cost meaning that you could save a total of £30.50 if you were to buy tickets for all 4 of the daily sessions.
Although the name Sun Bingo might suggest that only bingo games are on offer, this could not be further from the truth. There are quite a selection of slots and instants games for you to choose to play alongside bingo such as Snap and Mystic Meg’s Wheel of Destiny slot game.
Sun Bingo offers its loyal players a mix of regular everyday promotions as well as some spectacular specials where you could win prizes. These prizes have in the past included cars, holidays, entertainment systems to name just a few, as well as jackpot cash prizes.
Bargain basement bingo can be found every day at Sun Bingo in the Bingo 90 lobby where you are bound to find a bingo room which has games to suit your pocket ….. and you’ll find ticket prices as low as 1p, 2p or 5p.
Play in Bingo 90 at selected times on Monday’s and you are likely to come across the BOGOF ticket offers where you’ll receive a free ticket for every bingo ticket that you purchase. This allows you to eke out your money to last longer, as you’ll have the same number of tickets for half the price.
If you are free on Tuesday nights then make sure that you head to the Fashion club bingo room where you’ll find free bingo games at selected times between 8pm and 10pm with cash prizes on offer of £10 for a one line win, £15 for two lines and £50 for a full house win. Not bad when you’ve not had to spend a penny. Also every night a free 90 ball jackpot game is played with a full house prize of £125 although as you might expect this game is extremely popular so you’ll have to take your chance alongside the hundreds of other players to see if you are the lucky winner.
There is no loyalty programme as such at Sun Bingo but players will receive a 50% reload bonus for their second cash deposit they make. Also you could earn yourself and your friends a £10 bonus each if they sign up to Sun Bingo following your recommendation.
Sun Bingo is a quality site, offering a great bingo and instant games experience. Players of all levels and with all budgets will be accommodated, in our opinion this is an online bingo site to add to your list of favourites.
