Another exclusive bingo game at Sky is the 50 ball Mystical Bingo room. This is joined by 75, 80 and 90 ball rooms alongside Rainbow Riches, WWTBAM, Cash Cubes, Bouncy Balls and Deal Or No Deal themed rooms. For bargain hunters there's even a Sky Pennies room where you can play fo decent jackpots - including £1500 Super Prize Bingo daily from 1.30pm - at between 1p and 5p a ticket. With over 20 rooms to choose from there's plenty of options for all kinds of players.
For those that like slots there's even more choice. 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 Vegas and Sky Casino. Your login/username plus account will transit across the different channels seamlessly.
Get The Sky Bingo App
Player promotions are a mixture of network offerings and site exclusives. In recent months most of Sky Bingo's promos have centred around the Tipping Point Room. Let's just say that they're squeezing this exclusive for everything they've got. Compared to other brands using Virtue Fusion - and we're thinking Mecca, Gala and Bet365 - Sky aren't quite up there and don't seem to be close to getting up there either.
However you can play at the site anywhere thanks to their mobile friendly site and apps. An Android app has recently been launched in the Google Play store whilst an iPhone version is available via the App Store. Touch ID is available for both kind of devices but Apple users are also able to fund their accounts with Apple Pay.
Loyalty .. To Players At Least
Whatever device you play on, Sky will reward you with their Loyalty Rewards. Players can get 5 gems for every £1 wagered on bingo and every £1 wagered on side games. At the basic level of Pearl you'll need to wager £50 before you can get a bonus of £1 in return for your 250 points. However, loyalty points also get you access to a rewards room depending on your VIP level.
To earn more loyalty points you might want to play the Hidden Gems scratchcard. This can be accessed daily once you've wagered £5 and could reward you with up to 100,000 gems. Additionally don't forget to regularly drop into Facebook for the chance to win bonuses and more loyalty points.
We've always been a fan of Sky Bingo and can't fault it for players. Sadly in September 2017 they decided to pull the plug on their affiliate partnerships which has left a sour taste with regards to the brand in business terms. With that in mind we have plenty of alternatives for you to choose from!
