Sky Bingo Review Continued...
Sky Bingo brings with it a weight of expectation merely by carrying the branding of one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world. It is also a sister site to the popular sportsbook, poker and casino offerings, with a single player account working across all of the different games. Prior to a redesign in spring 2016, Sky Bingo felt quite separate to the rest of the Sky stable, but the revamp seems to have brought it back into the fold.
Sky Bingo’s Virtue Fusion client allows players to get stuck into 90-, 80- and 75-ball bingo and multiplayer games, with a liberal sprinkling of branded rooms from the likes of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Rainbow Riches and Deal or No Deal.
You can take advantage of the regular games in the Daily Rewards room on each day that you stake a minimum of £2 from your balance, and those who have recently signed up get to test the waters in the Newbie room for a week.
You will also find a good selection of slots from producer Playtech, including Clover Rollover, Night ‘N’ Day and Rich Treats.
The Sky Bingo site is now far more attractive following a makeover in early 2016, with a violet background brightening up most of the pages. There were previously some messy sections which made it difficult to find what you wanted, but it is now structured much more clearly and navigation is as straightforward as you could wish for.
The lobby remains far more subdued and features a largely white screen with grey writing, which does not exactly scream “fun” like most other bingo offerings tend to do and leaves it still feeling a little cold and uninviting.
The mobile app version looks so much sharper, contains all the rooms you love on the desktop incarnation and runs very smoothly – if you’re going to play at Sky Bingo, you’ll have just as good a time on mobile or on your tablet as you would on your laptop.
The Newbie room, which comes to life between 5pm and 9pm, is the perfect opportunity for fresh players to settle into the ways of Sky Bingo for a week before venturing onwards into the rest of the site. Other than that and the ability to nominate your chat moderator of the month, Sky Bingo is a little light on features, but at least there is little to distract you from playing the games.
Sky Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
New players receive a £25 bingo bonus and £10 Rainbow Riches Bingo bonus when they deposit and spend £5. Both must be wagered through three times before you can extract any winnings from them. Other than that, there are plenty of other promotions giving out cash, bonuses and enhanced jackpots.
The impressive Sky Bingo Loyalty Gems scheme, which rewards regular players with bonuses, prize draw entries and even cash, can also be found on a greatly improved Promotions page.
Sky Bingo is not the most exciting site to look at, but it does offer a good number of games, a favourable welcome bonus and a handy loyalty scheme too. You’ll enjoy playing on mobile much more than on desktop, with the ability to flick between the different gaming sites under the Sky umbrella on both formats a definite tick in the site’s favour.
