Sun Bingo is now a Virtue Fusion / Playtech bingo site – but with a difference.
The Sun newspaper’s bingo site has been around since 2009. It is one of the biggest UK bingo websites and until August 2016 ran on the Gamesys bingo platform (along with its sister site Fabulous Bingo and a handful of others).
The new Virtue Fusion version of the site looks very much like the old Gamesys version and not much like a Virtue Fusion site at all, and they have also managed to retain several of their previous regular promotions as well as the Sun’s exclusive slot Winning Headlines (the rest of the slots are Playtech). The Virtue Fusion network rooms are there (along with half a dozen exclusive rooms including a penny bingo room) but at relaunch, Sun Bingo did not have any of the exotic Virtue Fusion variants such as Cash Cubes or Rainbow Riches Bingo. The aforementioned Cash Cubes arrived at the start of October 2016 (on desktop as well as mobile and tablet), together with both Deal Or No Deal bingo rooms, and Rainbow Riches soon followed.
Although the bingo lobby and bingo rooms still look as they did at the time of the migration from Gamesys it seems that Sun Bingo has quietly brought HTML5 to the desktop without inflicting the new style bingo lobby on their players; in fact this has been done so seamlessly that the only way we were able to verify that it had happened at all was by attempting a Sun Bingo login using a browser with Flash disabled. When we tried to play bingo after login, a message appeared asking for permission to run Flash; we declined and the bingo lobby opened anyway, in HTML5 but looking and playing just like the Flash version. If (as many do) you hate the new style Playtech bingo lobby this could be the site for you.
The combination of the outstanding Sun Bingo promotions with the vastly superior Virtue Fusion bingo platform ought to be a killer, IF they can pull it off. After a shaky start, it looks like they could be doing just that.
