About Sun Bingo
An official offshoot of the UK's The Sun newspaper, Sun Bingo has been a part of the Gamesys Network since 2006. As of August 2016, the platform will be taken over by Playtech, following a multi-million pound deal between the bingo operator and Playtech. The takeover is expected to usher in a raft of changes, as well as over 15,000 new players, but until then the site will continue to look and feel the same as it has for the past decade.
As part of this sun bingo review we had a look at a number of promotions, and more specifically at the terms applied. Sun bingo has a good selection of promotions which will suit all different types of bingo players. Within the details of each promotion you’ll find a link to the terms and conditions which specifically apply to that promotion. In all of the terms we analysed we did not spot anything which we felt to be unfair or would give us reason to criticise the terms. However, we would still strongly recommend that you fully read the terms and conditions before accepting any form of bonus. It is also worth noting that sun bingo is licensed and regulated in Gibraltar which makes it totally safe.
One of the best things about Sun Bingo is that there are themed games which tie in with the tabloid newspaper. The best example of this is Winning Headlines, a video slot inspired by red-top headlines in which it’s possible to win 10,000x your coin size. There’s also a Mystic Meg slot that will appeal to lovers of horoscopes. Divine your future as you roll its reels and discover whether fortune has blessed you.
The remaining slots to be found at Sun Bingo are mostly gaudy affairs, rich in colours and low in subtlety. Try the likes of Winnings of Oz, Rainbow Riches, Bouncy Balls, Monopoly Big Event and Ruby Slippers. There’s also a section stocked with classic slots, another reserved for progressive jackpot slots, a table games category and a load of scratch cards. The selection here is greater than that offered by many bingo sites and, while the quality of games isn’t enough to qualify Sun Bingo as a fully fledged casino in its own right, it’s got more than enough here to entertain you for many a long evening.

The Lobby and Bingo Rooms

You can easily sort all bingo rooms, session bingo and free bingo. You can also easily sort the list of bingo rooms by type – 90 ball or 80 ball bingo, jackpot size and ticket prize. In our assessment of the bingo lobby we’d say it is really easy to use and allows you to find a bingo rooms which suits you.
This is a bingo site which has been well designed and has also had the bingo player’s interests at heart. The home pages are really well laid out and easy to use. There is a good choice of bingo rooms, all of which look great and are different to other online bingo sites. On the whole we generally struggled to find faults and would have no problems in saying that sun bingo is highly recommended.
