In 2008 The Sun Bingo changed their software platform from Tombola to Gamesys, the makers of Jackpotjoy. The old Sun Bingo site became Tombola whilst this new site started from scratch. It quickly established itself as one of the leading brands in online bingo. They offered massive exclusives and even introduced a fun live show – Having A Ball – that featured the likes of Brian Dowling and Rustie Lee.
At the start of 2016, Sun Bingo made a surprise announcement that it was once again moving software platform. Their next destination was the Virtue Fusion platform – the one favoured by many other big brands including Gala, Mecca, Sky, Bet365 and Ladbrokes. The transition was quite seamless and Sun Bingo has managed to keep it’s big promotions and exclusives!
7 Days Of Free Bingo
New players to Sun Bingo are usually welcomed with a 300% bonus, however as of May 2017 this offer has been increased to 400% and includes a £20 bingo bonus and £20 games bonus when you deposit and spend £10. Wagering terms apply – x3 for bingo and x30 for games. If you’re not keen on spending money straight away, then Sun Bingo does have a Learner Room which offers free bingo games between 11am and 1pm and 6pm to 8pm. Access to this room is available for your first seven days.
One benefit of Sun Bingo’s transition from Gamesys to Virtue Fusion is a greater selection of bingo rooms. There’s the usual 75 and 90 ball rooms but these are complemented with Deal Or No Deal, Cash Cubes, Rainbow Riches and Bouncy Balls. There’s also Session Bingo options available for those of you who like to play on a fixed budget.
Exclusive Slots & Promotions
The move to Virtue Fusion also improved Sun Bingo’s range of slots. Login and start spinning on top games such as Batman, Jackpot Giant, Man Of Steel, Superman and many more. There are also a couple of exclusive games including Mystic Meg and The Sun Winning Headlines.
Sun Bingo are excellent for promotions! They have the usual Virtue Fusion Network offers such as BingoLinx jackpots, BOGOFs, free games and prize nights. There are exclusives too – Having A Ball is still a regular feature plus Sun Bingo does run regular prize giveaways. At time of writing they’re offering £40,000 in jackpots to players! Drop in on their social media pages too for the chance to bag occasional bonuses.
Perhaps the biggest issue for Sun Bingo is it’s relationship with The Sun newspaper. For some people this site will be a no go and we fully understand that position. However, Sun Bingo does deliver an excellent service to it’s players and those who choose to play there shouldn’t be disappointed.
