Sun Bingo Review
Updated On Friday 4th September 2015
New Player Offer: 400% Bonus - 7 Days Free
Wagering terms and conditions will apply - Please gamble responsibly!
Sun Bingo has had a very interesting history. It started life not on the present Gamesys platform it now occupies but as a standalone. In 2008 the brand joined the Jackpotjoy stable whilst the old Sun Bingo changed it's name. That site became Tombola, the UK's Biggest Bingo Site! Isn't it funny how things work out? Anyway the move has worked out well for all parties as Sun Bingo hasn't exactly struggled.
Although Sun Bingo utilises the Gamesys platform it does try to be independent and offer unique promotions and games to it's players. It's aim has been to offer good value entertainment so many of the games and slots are limited in wagering. We think that stance is perhaps a little more flexible these days but it's a nice notion if nothing else.
400% Welcome Bonus
New players to Sun Bingo are currently offered a 400% welcome bonus. Deposit and spend £10 and receive a £40 bonus (x3 bingo bonus, x30 games bonus). Do be aware that only bingo play will give a 100% contribution to clearing the term. If you play slots or roulette then the contribution is lower. Blackjack and Snap wagering will not help clear the wagering term at all. That said this is one of the better ts&cs and it makes getting your winnings out a lot easier.
Although there's not a no deposit bonus as such, newbies can access the Learner Room for 7 days to play free games. This room is open from 11am to 1pm and 6pm. Sun Bingo are the only Gamesys brand who offer a newbie room so if you've never used the software before it's a good way to find out about how things work, the chat hosts etc. If you like free bingo then there are additional games to enjoy for all players every Tuesday and Thursday.
Daily Free Game
Depositors can also play a daily free game. Choose from Doubly Bubbly, Mystic Meg's Wheel Of Destiny or Sundown Daily Race. You can only play on one game per week but the are free spins or cash prizes on offer with each one. You will only be able to play these games if you've wagered at least £2 at Sun Bingo within the past 7 days!
Away from the free stuff there's plenty of paying games to enjoy. There's a number of bingo rooms - mainly 90 ball but you can play 75 ball and 80 ball. Ticket prices tend to range from 1p to 10p. There's also a Session Bingo room where you pay a fixed fee for one hour of games. That's a good way to manage your funds/time - the cheapest time to play is in the morning! Snap is a card based bingo game whilst slot players can choose from the likes of Starburst, Winning Headlines (exclusive), Winstones, Double Bubble and Peggle Slots.
One thing we really like about Sun Bingo is the promotions. They are pretty good at them and regularly have big prizes, cashback, chat games and even their very own TV show with the likes of Brian Dowling and Rustie Lee! Not many brands can compete with that kind of thing. Overall Sun Bingo provides players with a good bingo site - and it's head and shoulders over it's other newspaper rivals like The Mirror and Daily Express.
