Sun Bingo are celebrating their 15th Birthday this week and you’re invited to the party. Of course we’re referring to the online presence of the brand because as The Sun have been running bingo games through their newspaper since the 80s. As far as we’re aware the newspaper games no longer run as sites that publish the Sun Bingo Numbers haven’t updated in over a year. Back to the online site and that has had quite the history. For example did you know that the original Sun Bingo brand was run by the people who own Tombola?
From Tombola To Virtue Fusion
Launched in 2006, Sun Bingo stayed with Tombola until 2009 when it moved over to the Gamesys platform. Ironically Tombola became a brand in it’s own right and has since established itself as the top bingo site in The UK. That’s not to say Sun Bingo didn’t flourish in it’s new home. Innovative ideas such as Having A Ball, a live gameshow with the likes of Rustie Lee and Brian Dowling, became very popular with players. However after five years with Gamesys the brand would move again. This time to it’s current home with Playtech and Virtue Fusion.
Award Winning Advert
During it’s 15 year period the brand has picked up a few awards including Best TV Advert and Best Chat Team (2014 Which Bingo Awards). They also picked up Best Marketing Campaign in the 2018 awards for the catchy Are You Gonna Bingo promo featuring Jayde Adams. This year Sun Bingo finally took the biggie and were crowned Which Bingo’s Site of the Year for 2021. Interestingly the brand doesn’t seem to have collected any accolades from BingoPort (another site that runs awards) and actually doesn’t even feature on their site. BingoPort suggest that their absence is because they don’t “participate in the Player Rewards program”. Mind you they also don’t feature Tombola so perhaps it’s a valid reason after all.
The Big Birthday Bash
So how are Sun Bingo celebrating 15 years online? Well they’re hosting a Big Birthday Bash between the 8th and 14th November. Every day between 3pm and 4pm there will be 10 x £250 games with 15 chances to win. If you win Full House on the number 15 across the week, you’ll be entered into a £1000 Sharepot. Look out too for 15 x Big Money Chat Games a day, with cash, vouchers, and chocolate up for grabs. All the action takes place in the Candy Room and tickets for the Birthday Bash games cost 10p each. We don’t know whether they’ll be more celebrations next week – hopefully there will be – so keep an eye on their promos page.
Winner Wednesday = Free Bingo
And the promos page is well worth checking out regularly because Sun Bingo do host a lot of player specials. For example every Wednesday until the 24th November they are hosting 90 free Bingo games with 11 Roll On prizes per day in the Cabaret room between 8am and 11pm. It’s a maximum of 24 tickets per player per game and here’s best bet – especially for newbies: all new and existing players are welcome, with no deposit or spend required to join in. Of course other terms do apply so do make sure you check them out.
