Sky Bingo Review
Sky Bingo has come a long way since it first launched on the Virtue Fusion platform in June 2009. Not only do they offer players the network's selection of bingo rooms and slots, they also have their own exclusive rooms including one based on the popular TV quiz show, Tipping Point. We've always been big fans of this particular brand and it's sister sites like Sky Vegas. However due to circumstances we're unable to recommend this site to new players. This is a huge a shame as it does offer a decent bingo experience.
Sky Bingo has changed considerably over time. Whilst bingo is still an important element of the brand slots have become just as important. This has led to the arrival of Sky Arcade, the slots lobby of the bingo section. We like the design of Sky Bingo! It has a modern look and is responsive to mobile devices. Players can enjoy bingo and slots on the move, via desktop or on tablet. Apps are available for Apple and Android devices.
Sky Bingo Welcome Offer
We're not completely sure what Sky Bingo offer new players as a welcome bonus. We did believe that they had a deposit/spend £10 for a £60 bonus (split £40 for bingo and £20 for Rainbow Riches slots). Wagering terms of x2 and x20 apply in this case. However the promotions page at Sky Bingo doesn't reference this offer. Instead the Prize Burst game that's free to all players seems to be what's available as a welcome bonus. Prize Burst is a daily free to play game that offers the chance to win cash, free spins or scratchcards. If this is the case then it's clear that bingo has taken a backseat at Sky Bingo!
Well at least in bonus terms! The Sky Bingo lobby gives you access to a fabulous selection of rooms. It's comparable to the likes of Buzz and Gala when it comes to choice and exclusives. As well as the usual 75 and 90 ball rooms you will find Fluffy Favourites Bingo, Housey Bingo, Rainbow Riches Bingo, Deal Or No Deal Bingo, Cash Cubes and Age Of The Gods. These are joined by exclusive rooms such as Potion Shop, Tipping Point and Mystical Bingo. With over 20 rooms to choose from there's plenty of options for all kinds of players.
Sky Bingo Promotions
For those that like slots there's even more choice inside Sky Arcade and Sky Vegas. Aside from the standard Virtue Fusion network games like Big Top Tombola, Britain's Got Talent, Cash Cubes, Clover Rollover, Fluffy Favourites, Bouncy Balls and Bar-X there's also the opportunity to try various slots and instants that are under Sky Casino. Your login/username plus account will transit across the different channels seamlessly. This means you can even login and play Sky Super Six for free using the same account.
Player promotions are a mixture of network offerings and site exclusives. More recently the promotions have become slots and Arcade centric but the bingo isn't totally overlooked. At time of writing (January 2020) Sky were giving players the opportunity to win a year of shopping. Comparatively Sky Bingo's promotions are better than many other brands on the Virtue Fusion Network. The Prize Burst game is also another good feature - even more so as you can play without making a deposit.
We've always been a fan of Sky Bingo and can't fault it for players. It offers a good range of bingo rooms, access to plenty of slots and some decent promotions. We love the exclusive games like Tipping Point and Potion Shop. So why do we rate it so badly? Well back in September 2017 Sky decided to pull the plug on their affiliate partnerships. These are the working relationships we have with most bingo brands. After 8 years of working with us Sky just walked away from our contract whilst continuing to profit from our work.
Naturally, this has left us with a sour taste with regards to the brand in business terms. We would love to recommend Sky Bingo as a destination but just can't. Thankfully we have plenty of alternatives for you to choose from! These include Buzz, Gala, Mecca and Bet365 who are all on the Virtue Fusion platform. Whilst these won't give you access to rooms like Tipping Point you will find the networked rooms and alternative exclusives to enjoy.
