    About Sun Bingo

    Sun Bingo 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.

    Sun Bingo is a household name and will be familiar from its TV ads. The welcome bonus is a good one and it has straightforward and simple wagering requirements.

    Sun Bingo opened for the first time in 2006 and since then has gone from strength to strength - remaining popular enough to win two awards in the WhichBingo Awards 2014 - Best TV Advert and Best Chat Team, having previously scooped the Site of the Year award.

    Sun Bingo offers simple bingo fun at great value prices. 

    The brand swapped to Playtech software (Virtue Fusion) in August 2016, but the good news is that the brand identity remained intact. The site design or logo did not change at all immediately following the changeover so players were in no doubt that they were still in good hands.

     

    New player offer

    All new members at Sun Bingo will receive a 300% welcome bonus on a £10 first deposit.*

    That's a £20 bingo bonus and a £10 games bonus. The bonus will remain in the account for 7 days before being retrieved if not used.

    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.

    *New players only. Wagering requirements apply. See website for full T&C.

    Promotions

    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 and usually all that is required is to play your favourite games to earn prize draw entries.

    Session 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 great value.

    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 slot spins. Every depositing player that has spent £1 in real money in the day gets to play the free scratch game.

        Not keen on playtech so was unhappy with Sun Bingo changing to this platform. Bingo is hard to win and the slots are expensive.

        Afraid I have to agree with other negative comments here. Sun bingo was bad yes and now I think to be honest it's to be avoided. Playtech usually do a good job but in this case it's a no-no.

        Bingo repeat winners are a little hard to believe and I mean same winners winning almost twice per game every game. That's a bit odd unless a number generator also needs cache and cookies cleared which seems to be the reply to most things.

        The slots are terrible with empty spins and even when you get what should be a good bonus i.e. 20 x 5 spins you might still end up with under £1 of a win?? as maybe only 2 of those spins will actually pay anything.

        not good at all sorry Sun!

        Sun bingo was bad, but since the changeover it is even worse. Very rarely get a bonus and if you do it isn't even worth having as doesn't give any winspins. Not worth wasting your money on this site

        I used to enjoy Sun Bingo, but since the change over and being promoted to VIP member I have found I spent a lot of money thinking it would add up to a nice weekly bonus on a promotion only to discover it was a fist deposit only in the week so ended up with £25 so cost me dearly.
        communication is not good and customer service is lacking. bingo very hard to win and slots eat money and you get a win. think before you deposit.

        I won lot on my last 7 pound on my first deposit I would say 500 pound over two days. Withdrawing was quick and easy. ok I haven't won on my second and third deposit, but i do believe it's about luck.
        A good site to be fair, lots of offers - I even won a free hungry house voucher value of ten pounds whoop whoop :) .

        Sun bingo is like all the other gamesys sites....greedy! The slots pay out peanuts, but what's more laughable is when you play the demo slots the payouts are fantastic! The same names win over and over and over. Gamesys sites are well known for it! Save your money, you will never get a decent win and if you do, they will take it back and more!!

        This site is no way random! I have never seen such repeat winners on a site like the Sun bingo! the ''free'' newbie room is the worst for it - they could be 70 players, you all have 6 tickets yet for the whole 2 hour sessions you will see the same constant 4-5 names win over and over again.
        A lot of players in the freebie room have 0tg on there names. i questioned it and was told its a ''popular'' name. yeah right so its a fluke that all the winners randomly have 0tg on there usernames!
        The bingo session is great value for money though, but once again same winners a lot of winners in there have ''MO'' on there usernames to me its like it picks usernames this site is no way random generated.
        Aside from that the site's easy to use, withdrawls are fast and they dont mess about with withdrawls and ID etc, its simple and straight forward (so thats a plus).
        The moneys great. It can be decent money and you do get value for your money, tickets from 1p-25p. Slots can be dire and there own branded slots can be the pits and the bonus rounds can pay out poorly.
        Aside from the repeat same winners Sun Bingo is ok i guess.

      3. Dragonfish6969

        Shocking site for repeat winners. I stupidly spent nearly £100 on 40 bingo games in a row. Pre-bought (24 tickets at £2.40 each game) and didnt even come close to a win and must of had about 6 1tgs in the whole 40 games. I saw the same 7 names winning and never again! This site does not look random at all - it picks winners imo and I don't care what anybody says.
        Also spend 30 on slots or 10 on bingo and get a cash prize the next day. In the last 3 days having spent a fortune I've had 32p, 56p and 55p back!!! Whats the point lol? Also they used to give out cash bonuses a lot, now they have dried up they and you dont get them anymore and they dont do many deposit bonuses anymore.
        I will never put a penny back on this site again id rather play at a fairer site.
        id love to see sun reply to some of these reviews but you know they wont.

        Been a member os Sun Bingo for a number years now..i had stopped playing for a while as was not winning. Looked at my emails the last time I won any thing worth taking out was feb 2013 - the date now is November 14th 2015.
        I joined all the sister sites an played a fair amount on all them. On jpj I won a nice amount back in early 2013. Since then any thing I deposit I don't win on any except for Starspins. Now I wont win on there till payed that back either.
        Seems once you joined them all u win a little on 1 an lose on others,,,yet they say its down to luck yes may be but 2 an half years since winning on sun bingo is a lot bad luck. Don't dare question why not wining, does not go down well.
        I am in navy have loads friends I could ask to join an I get bonus ,,I wouldn't dare as them as I seen how it works. I used to love the site would put it at top of others, but now its in the bottom. Am not saying don't try it am just saying if your not lucky find some where better amlookinggd,

        I've been a member of Sun Bingo now for about 16 months and I have played at lots of sites, but i do think this is the best so far.
        I have had just 'one' win in bingo and that was when i won Max tickets in a chat game and not counting the wins i had in the Learner room during the first 7 days, which i think is a great feature of the site for new players.
        Yes i agree its frustrating to see the same names winning in bingo, but to be fair, i think some max a lot. i've seen one player win 1000.00, 250.00, plus a few other lesser amounts in a matter of days. That same player was complaining about never winning a week or so later despite them maxing every game. It's just luck.
        Your odds of winning if you max are bound to be better than if you play just a few tickets like i do, but money isn't going to last long maxing every game and you would need to win quite often just to recoup your losses.
        I personally love the site. I think the hosts are lovely and most of the players are friendly and welcoming too. You have to accept that it's a gambling site and like all gambling sites, there will always be more losers than winners. How could they pay the hosts, technicians support staff etc if we all won ? They would go bankrupt.
        I only wager what i can afford to lose, and yes sometimes i do lose a lot before i get a win and yes i get frustrated, but i also get the occasional nice win in slots which is good. For a minimum 1p stake X 50 lines spin on peggle slots i won 135.00 so i don't agree you have to bet high to win decent money, just the higher the stake the bigger the payout, but also the bigger the losses in between wins. You can't have it all ways. It's personal choice how much you wager and the hosts are always encouraging players to set limits and not to wager more than they can afford to lose. On the other hand I've played on sites where the hosts encourage you to buy max tickets in bingo, "buy more...win more roomies", but the Sun hosts will tell you, you only need to buy one ticket if your lucks in to win.
        Sun bingo is by far the more generous with it's promotions, free games, prize pick, chat games etc and it's also better at paying out when you are lucky enough to withdraw. Some sites impose stupid wagering t&cs and do their best to block a withdrawal or leave it pending for ages, but i haven't had any problems with this site.Unless things change, i wouldn't play anywhere else.

        I was a member of Tombola Bingo for 8 years and I've been with Sun Bingo for 2 and a half years and withdrawn more from Sun than I ever did with tombola.
        I had a massive fall out with Tombola and closed my account in disgust after playing up to £500 a week at times for months after months, year in year out, to try beat the random number generator into giving me a win - only to watch constant same names make a fine living out my and others deposits.
        I admittedly have lost a massive amount of money on Sun Bingo too, but in their defence we are the ones who deposit and there are facilities to regulate what you spend using deposit limits. I lost over £3000 in 30 days and withdrew £600.00. It was my choice to gamble so much money and it's called gambling because no wins are guaranteed, its pure random luck and I am just not lucky and lose a heck of a lot of money.
        I am at the giving up stage for Sun Bingo as well now. I just feel there is no return from such large loss and constant deposits.
        Dare I say ive become extremely bored of it now, even after short and long breaks. A decent large withdrawl now and again would keep punters who spend large amounts interested and have them come back.
        The site has a great choice of games and slots and a great atmosphere with friendly chat and good cms who like a laugh and can take a joke. I am only a member with Sun Bingo nowadays - closed all other sites accounts and fear I will have to do the same with Sun and face up to the fact that im just another unlucky punter who couldn't win my bus fare home.
        I intend to stay there a while longer until the end of 2015 as I feel this site to be fair and friendly etc but im going into 2016 free of Sun Bingo if I cannot win by the end of the year.
        My advice after experience and my own failures on the site is It's all about having a bit of fun with what you can afford to play. It's a great place to be at anytime.
        Give me a shout in chat if you join up to Sun bingo site. I'm always friendly to new players and old with my banter in chat. Games are good and chat is a great laugh.

        Joined sun bingo in 20013 lost more than won. Agree with most that it is difficult to win on bingo. i mostly play on the slots for this reason. What i do find strange is people popping up in chat claiming they have won big yet they dont appear in winners list. happens frequently.
