About Sky Bingo
Everyone knows the name Sky and that the brand is branching out in lots of different directions. The reputation and quality of the Sky name is evident within the Sky Bingo online bingo site. This bingo site has a very strong welcome offer for new players that want to try its online bingo offer.
The site got something of a makeover in 2016 to make it more modern and colourful - the purple becoming more dominant than the white. At the same time the site adopted the new style HTML5 Playtech lobby and games layout which opens the way for all the fantastic new features such as being able to play in multiple bingo rooms at the same time and opening more than one slot game.
The new style also makes all the menu options much more easily located and they have introduced an exclusive 50 ball game - Mystical Bingo, with another new bingo room based on popular itv show Tipping Point.
The range of games available is unrivalled and there is something for everyone every single day.

Launched in February 2017 the game is fast and furious, but at the time of launch there is no progressive game to run alongside the main game. There is a progressive community jackpot however for winning in 12 calls and half goes to the winner with the other half split between all players in the winning game - amount won by each depends on number of tickets held.
Slots and casino games
There is a selection of these games in the bingo section of the site, with more choice in the tabs shown below. However, the bingo slots section is still quite comprehensive in its own right.
