The Sun newspaper’s bingo site has been around for more than 10 years and is renowned for the quality of its player promotions. It is one of the biggest UK bingo websites and until August 2016 it ran on the Gamesys bingo network.  It then moved to the Virtue Fusion / Playtech bingo platform.

Sun Bingo

The new Playtech / 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. Sun Bingo also now has its own exclusive bingo variants Brit 50 Bingo and Winning Headlines Bingo, plus the themed Retro 90 room.  Mobile play is via Android and Apple apps.

Although the bingo lobby and bingo rooms still look much 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 very like the Flash version.  If (as many do) you hate the new style Playtech bingo lobby this could be just the bingo site for you.

Sun Bingo is known for its outstanding player promotions and perhaps the best of these is the Everyone’s A Winner promotion which is run from time to time (usually coinciding with a TV advertising campaign).  While this promotion is running, players can spend £10 cash on bingo, slots or games in one day to win a guaranteed share of £10K the next day – part of which is a prize draw and part a bingo bonus sharepot.  There are minor variations each time the promotion is run.  In the current version, the prize draw has a top prize of £500 cash, two second prizes of £250 cash, 200 consolation prizes of £5 cash and 200 of £5 bingo bonus (which has a 72 hour expiry) and players can enter each draw as many times as they like (but they can only win one prize each time).
