An exclusive slot game that you won't find anywhere else is The Sun Winning Headlines. The winning reels relate to items found in The Sun 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.
Mobile and tablet
Sun Bingo offers players on the move a number of options. There is Slots by Sun Bingo in app form, but what the site is most excited by is the addition of bingo to the mobile version of the sunbingo.co.uk site. This can be accessed on the mobile browsers of both iOS and Android mobile phones, on an iPad, but not currently on Android tablets - this capability is to follow soon.
The Candy and Jazz 90 ball bingo rooms have been added to the range of slots available via mobile for those with an iPhone or iPad (Android will follow later) - which include the popular Double Bubble and Winstones slots to name just two. Two clicks and you're in and the game is in full screen mode!
The way the game plays and the sounds and lots of other features are customisable in the Settings. A really cool feature that is really helpful to mobile players is that once a ticket reaches three to go it just shows those three numbers and as more cards reach that level it shows them in a list, so it is easy to see how close to bingo you are.
