Sky Bingo Review - Mobile Bingo Reviews
Sky Bingo launched their mobile bingo offering for players wishing to enjoy the game on the go early 2013. The free app is powered by Virtue Fusion, using software from Playtech who have developed an exceptional mobile platform for several big-name bingo sites.
Overall, Sky Bingo Mobile looks fantastic, offering a range of bingo, games and slots on a user-friendly, sleek and playable interface. The mobile site is compatible with all iOS and Android devices, and they are hoping to launch more versions very soon.
As this app is integrated, you don't need to sign up for a new Sky Bingo account to play, simply log in with your existing log in once you have downloaded the Sky Bingo Mobile app. If you are a new player wishing to try out the software then there are some very generous sign up bonuses for registering an account and plenty of bonuses to try out the games.
Once you have downloaded the free app, simply sign in and the Bingo Lobby will launch. The games are available for all iOS and Android mobile devices including tablets and iPads, but even from the smallest mobile screen the graphics are crystal clear, crisp and sleek. From the lobby you can launch a selection of Sky Bingo rooms and there are loads to choose from. Play 90-ball, 80-ball or 75-ball bingo (pattern and line), speed bingo and special games like Deal or No Deal and Lucky Numbers bingo just as easily from your mobile device as you would from your PC.
Ticket sales and the bingo tickets take up the entire screen and this makes it all very easy on the eye. There's a menu at the bottom to launch chat, side games such as Clover Rollover (there are only two right now but expect Sky Bingo are expecting to launch more soon), and game information. At the top of the screen you will see all your game information, bingo balls, balance, and game prizes, while winners appear as a pop-up in the middle of the screen (several times if there is more than one winner). Tap the screen to launch each function and use scroll functions to select ticket purchases etc.
The bingo is excellent and this software is fast becoming the creme de la creme of mobile play. Everything from the bingo lobby to the bingo tickets is clear, graphic rich and easy to navigate. The games play with ease and as the software is integrated with the online software, you don't have to worry about missing any big games. All the Bingo Linx games and big jackpots also play from mobile, so you can experience all the fun of Sky Bingo even from your mobile device.
If we had to make one criticism it would be the time out functions. Most bingo apps override the timeout, which means you can continue to play even if you are just watching the bingo tickets. However, the timeout at Sky Bingo does not override and this causes the game to time out. If you tap your screen to keep the screen alive, the game often flips back to the lobby and you cannot watch your game play. It's the tiniest glitch but a big irritation and we can only hope that Sky Bingo resolve it soon.
