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.
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.
When the transfer of Sun Bingo to the Playtech platform took place there were some features missing. Cash Cubes and the Deal or No Deal Bingo games were not present at the relaunch, but this was addressed in October 2016 when all three were added to the revamped site.
At the same time other enhancements were made:
- Bingo Multi-Room option – the ability to launch and play in more than one bingo room at a time.
- Bingo Chat Emoticons are now be available in chat.
- 1tg heartbeat sound - when you get to 1tg you will hear the heartbeat sound to build the excitement.
Sun Bingo offers simple bingo fun at great value prices.
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 on mobile and tablet
iOS App Store - The Sun Bingo iOS app is visually very simplistic and more aimed at existing customers to quickly access their preferred games. The app does contain all the usual online bingo sections, such as bingo lobby, slots, promotions and community, but they are tucked away in the menu and are not on the homescreen of the app at all.
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 - There is presently no app available from the Google Play.
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.
Access via mobile browser - You can access Sun Bingo via any mobile device on the relevant mobile browser. The games are fully optimised for mobile play.
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’ and ‘Community’.
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 are 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 your prefer to play.
