It takes no genius to understand that the Sun Bingo site has the backing of one of the most popular tabloids in the UK, The Sun, so it was a given that this online bingo site would eventually become one of the best bingo sites in the UK. Launched in January 2006, the website makes use of the red and yellow colours while tabs help players navigate the site with ease.
A digital clock at one end of the top of the homepage indicates the time before the next bingo game starts, usually no more than 60 seconds, and on the other end players can find a very quick and easy way to login to their bingo account. Further down the page, Sun Bingo show off their current bingo bonuses and great bingo promotions.
We are not sure what the deal is with Sun Bingo and their welcoming bingo bonuses, but we must say that we were not impressed. The Welcome Bonus is a relatively small 100% deposit bonus up to £100 while there is only one reload bonus applied on the second deposit and that is a one-off 50% bonus up to £50. The only other way you can claim a bonus at Sun Bingo is by referring your friends. For each friend that makes at least a £10 deposit, you will also get a £10 bonus. The maximum number of friends you can refer is 10, for a total of £100 in refer a friend bonuses.
Sun Bingo offer the traditional 90 ball, 80 ball and 75 ball bingo games but they also have two more diverse online bingo variants. We tried playing Snap Bingo in the Atlantic City bingo room and found that tickets cost 20p each. The cheapest room is Mississippi which is a 5p room while the Las Vegas room features £2 tickets. There is also the Sun Bargain 90 games that play in five different bingo clubs and tickets cost 1p, 2p and 5p.
We discovered that the side games at Sun Bingo are divided into two categories, the online slots and the instant win games. There are at least a couple of dozens of slot machines available, which can be played in Fun or Real mode, and include such popular titles as Zuma, Ray Gunn, Double Bubble and Spinning for Gold. Instant win games that we recognized included WAG’S Shopping Spree and Footballers Widows.
We were very surprised to see that Sun Bingo makes no use whatsoever of popular e-wallets as a funding option, but they still accept all leading UK credit and debit cards including Visa Debit, Delta, Visa Electron, Master Card, Debit Solo, Visa Card and Maestro UK. Bingo accounts can only be funded in GBP currency.
Members at Sun Bingo can withdraw their winnings back to their UK credit card only if they have made a deposit using a credit card, alternatively they can choose a bank transfer or a bank cheque. The minimum withdrawal amount is £10, but for a cheque the amount is £100.
The Sun Bingo support team go out of their way to make it extremely easy for their players to get in touch with them. You can call them at 0800-458-4664, email them by filling out the online form or you can chat to one of their agents through the Online Chat feature. You can also find on their website a very comprehensive FAQ page that will most definitely answer most of your questions.
