This is the official 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 where you want to go if you’re a fan of the game and keen on big jackpots. With the motto “Sun Bingo is fun bingo”, the famous tabloid and household name offers a massively entertaining online bingo site.
The site opened for the first time in 2006 and since then has gone from strength to strength. It offers a familiar and engaging bingo experience for players of all backgrounds and budgets. There are thousands of registered members who love to chat and help make it the best bingo community around.
The welcome bonus is a good one and it has straightforward and simple wagering requirements.
The site is built on the proven Playtech Bingo platform. The graphics have a rich and vibrant feel to them. This means you can make the most of the experience from either your PC or preferred mobile device.
You’ll be spoiled for choice in terms of games and rooms to play in. There are unique scratch cards, prize draws and lots more exciting games. You can also play for free, which is always a popular option.
When the transfer of Sun Bingo to the Playtech platform took place there were some excellent enhancements made:
To enjoy all this and much more, all you need to do is sign up for a Sun Bingo account. It’s completely free to register. You’ll be asked to enter a few standard details such as your name and address. You’ll also be asked to enter your credit or debit card details.
Sun Bingo offers simple bingo fun at great value prices.

The bingo lobby is very comprehensive and easy to move around and gives access back to the Home page should you need it and the Welcome page shows the most popular bingo and slots games of the moment. This area also gives access to Games, Scratchcards, Session Bingo and the Daily Free Games.

The range of exclusive rooms for just Sun Bingo players is amongst the biggest we have seen – these rooms are Showboat, Cabaret, Candy, Romance, Fashion, Jazz, Free and Breakfast Club.
The All-Winners rooms are for the daily and weekly specials for winners of selected games in the 90 ball rooms to play for bigger and better jackpots for free thanks to the tickets they are awarded as well as their cash prize winnings.
Winning Headlines Bingo – In September 2017 Sun Bingo got its own 36 ball game – Winning Headlines Bingo. In this game you can purchase one ticket for a price of your choosing from 10p to £2 and the prize available varies with the price of the ticket chosen. Each ticket features a sequence of 12 numbers and symbols relating to the popular Winning Headlines slot game such as Bizarre and TVBiz and these take the place of some of the numbers. It’s straight through for the full house on these games.
Many of the 90 ball games have special features:
1TG and 2TG games – Get a share of a prize pot if you have either 1tg or 2tg bingo tickets when the house is called. More chances to win in every game.
Roll on Bingo – Creates up to 20 more winners. Once the house has been won the game keeps playing until all Roll On prizes have been won. The number of extra prizes stated at the start of the game.
Last Chance Saloon – A free scratch card that is given to all players that purchased 6 tickets or more and didn’t win a prize in the game.
Slots and casino games
New slot games are being added all the time to enhance the lobby further:
Wishwood, Dancing Drums, Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours and Legend of Loki are just a few that were added to the slot list in the early part of 2018.
A special slot game available 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.
Wagering requirements differ depending on the games you choose to play. See website T&Cs for further details as requirements may have changed since the time of writing.

You can access Sun Bingo via any mobile device on the relevant mobile browser. The games are fully optimised for mobile play. Simply type in sunbingo.co.uk on your mobile or tablet device and you can check out some of the great changes made to the mobile bingo lobby in April 2018 that enhance the mobile bingo experience even further.
Access all of your favourite bingo rooms by scrolling our unique menu bar and you can now search for our most popular slot games within the lobby!
The layout of the mobile version of the site is much better for newer users than the app version. The home screen looks similar to the desktop version, it’s simple, very well laid out and easy to understand. You can also access the bingo lobby and slots lobby directly from the homepage, which makes navigating the site even faster.
The menu is located at the top left-hand side of the screen and lists contents for all the sections of the site, such as ‘Bingo’, ‘Slots’, ‘Promotions’, ‘Help’ and ‘Community’. ‘Games’ were added when the mobile version was updated early in 2018.
The mobile version of Sun Bingo has all the same games as the desktop version, such as Deal or No Deal Bingo, Cash Cubes Bingo and Rainbow Riches Bingo.
The layout of the games is simplistic and easy to understand, which makes Sun Bingo on mobile even more straightforward to use.
Overall the mobile version of the site is great, however, in our opinion, the app version is not as enjoyable an experience when compared to the mobile browser version. We would certainly advise new players to use the browser version and then use the app version once you know which games you prefer to play.
The sliding navigation bar at the top of the screen of the bingo games lobby isn’t clear that you can access/filter different game types from here.
The Sun Bingo app loads fast and had no crashes during our testing time.
Google Play – Sun Bingo was quick to launch an app in the Play Store as soon as it opened up to gambling sites. It’s quick and easy to install and you get all the fun and excitement of the desktop site. It loads quickly and it’s smooth to move around.
Android – Sun Bingo provides an alternative way of downloading an app to your android phone. Simply go to Sun Bingo on your mobile. Go to ‘promotions’ and then ‘mobile’ in the menu and tap on ‘download now’ under the Android section. You will have to remove particular security settings on your phone to allow the app to download correctly onto your phone.
