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. 

Awards

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.

 

 

New player offer

There is a 300% welcome bonus on a £10 first deposit.*

The first deposit bonus is made up of 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.

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.

        I started playing on Sun Bingo quite a few years ago now and stuck with it when the games and bingo changed. Still think it's not quite at the same level as a lot of other sites out there, promotions are a bit boring and not super fun to play in. I rarely log on there now but sometimes like a few games for old times sake.

        I excepted a slot bonus a while back and lost it all. since then when i deposit again (but not had any more bonus), my winnings went into the same bonus i had excepted a while back. when i asked live chat she said when first excepting the bonus for £50 i had to play through £900 and have not met my wagering.
        So basically everytime i deposit money and if i win it will go into the bonus i had a few weeks back, i was told i will have to wager over £400 to meet it, so why would i put in money in for it to then go into a bonus i will have to meet? is so ridiculous. Since the company has changed hands it has gone downhill i will not be depositing anymore and stick with JPJ.

        Sunbingo has been the best bingo app I have found so far, it's easy to use and there's a good range of promotions. The rooms can sometimes be a little busy, but I guess that is just people enjoying it as much as I do :). chat rooms are so friendly and helpful.

        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.

        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.

        Awful site steer clear. same winners all the time shocking, definitely something wrong. if you complain you are told in no uncertain words to button it. The winners are never chatting never say thank you for the win and if you direct a remark to them they don't answer funny that!!!
        my guess computerised winners, why the gambling commission's allow it I do not know, needs more people to come forward and speak up.
        It really is a rubbish site as are many bingo sites, it's such a pity as I love bingo but I am not stupid it's just a conn let you win once then fleece you till your dry that if you are stupid enough to fall for it.

          Hi elisabeth. As someone who plays online bingo all the time myself I can categorically confirm that there is no con. With regard to Sun Bingo the reason you may not see winners in the room or get them to respond is that they may be playing on other bingo sites on Playtech software as many rooms are linked or they may have pre-purchased from the schedule and left the room.

        I joined Sun Bingo about 4 years ago and i have put on in excess of 15 thousand pounds. When they changed to virtue fusion i was locked out of with no explanation, no email, phone call etc on the pretence that i had closed a site previous, even though i play on all virtue fusion sites.
        In the past i had very few wins, the slots were slow for wins and i very rarely won on bingo and a lot of winners seemed to be the chat hosts friends.When i spoke to a chat host about fair play and how much i had deposited i was told just self exclude.
        I hoped my luck might improve with the change so i have now printed out every deposit and the rarely few wins i had won i have now forwarded all paper work to the gc with a complaint. As far as im concerned if i have put that amount of money on and i am no longer able to win any thing back because they closed my account for no reason. i wouldnt call that fair play.
