Sun Bingo opened for the first time in 2006 and since then has gone from strength to strength - even becoming the WhichBingo Site of the Year in 2010. High praise indeed from our readers.
This bingo site operates on the popular Gamesys online bingo platform which gives players access to the biggest name in gaming.
As you would expect the site is the official online bingo site of The Sun Newspaper and was born from the popularity of the bingo game first introduced on paper cards issued with the paper - which is still going strong today. New players signing up with Sun Bingo receive a 300% first deposit bonus on amounts up to £100, meaning that there is a potential bingo bonus on offer to new players of £300 - with just 2 x wagering on bingo games.
For a limited time new depositing players will also receive a free 3 month subscription to the Sun+ service - digital news.
New players at Sun Bingo can take advantage of its 'Learner Room' for a full 7 days following registration. The room opens from 11am to 1pm and again from 6pm to 8pm. Play free bingo, meet the CMs and lots of other newbies.
Whether it's giving away thousands of pounds every week or a car a day for a whole month, Sun Bingo comes up with the biggest and best offers.
Bingo players can take advantage of the discounted Session Bingo offer which results in a total saving of over £30 a day if players buy into each of the four sessions - 10am to 11am; 3pm to 4pm; 7pm to 8pm and 11pm to midnight. Play them all or choose just one, it's still great value.
Every Tuesday and Thursday there is a free bingo game worth £10 a line, £15 for two lines and £50 for a full house at selected times between 8am and 12.30 am. There are also regular promos offering more free bingo and there are lots of linked games offering even bigger bingo prizes.
Sun Bingo is known for its huge promotions, whether it's giving away a car a day for a full month or dream holidays or the chance to live free for a year - and usually all that is required is to play your favourite games to earn prize draw entries.
Most rooms are dedicated to 90 ball bingo, but there is a good offering of 75 ball and 80 ball bingo also available.

Mystic Meg was the resident astrologer at The Sun newspaper for many years and she has her own place on SunBingo.co.uk. The Mystic Meg 'Wheel of Destiny' is a free daily game that offers the chance of cash prizes and free spins on the exclusive Mystic Meg slot game that features at the site. Every depositing player that has spent £2 in real money during the week gets to play the free game the following week for the chance to win real cash for free.
Another exclusive slot game that you won't find anywhere else is The Sun Winning Headlines. Win big by lining up the winning reels relating to items found in the newspaper as well as the normal slot game symbols. These include Dream Team, Bizarre, TV Biz and Hols from £9.50 - all instantly familiar features to Sun readers.
Sun Bingo does not offer bingo on mobile devices, but does provide a small selection of its most popular slot games.
With regard to wagering, different games have a different weighting. While 100% of the amount wagered on bingo counts for wagering, only 5% of slots and instants spend counts.
