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.
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 finally has an Android version of the mobile bingo app as well as an Apple version.
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 just the bingo site for you.
The combination of the outstanding Sun Bingo promotions with the vastly superior Virtue Fusion bingo platform ought to be a killer, and after a bit of a shaky start it looks like they are pulling it off.
One example of an outstanding Sun Bingo promotion 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. The £10K is made up of a prize draw with £3000 in cash prizes and a £7000 bingo bonus pot to be split evenly between other qualifying players (it expires if not used within 72 hours).
