Sun Bingo Review - Mobile Bingo Reviews
Sun Bingo is a pretty colossal and well known Internet bingo site but their foray into the mobile game has been slow and glitchy. They started advertising 90-ball bingo for mobile on the site in 2013, but there was no information, no compatibility info and many people simply couldn't access the full mobile site. The software is becoming more compatible although Sun Bingo still have a long way to go to compete with other mobile brands out there, and we couldn't even access a single bingo room from the iPhone!
Overall, Sun Bingo Mobile looks like a mini-version of the main site, and we signed up using the mobile interface too, which was simple enough but a bit fiddly. After a quick email verification and a deposit, we were keen to hit the bingo rooms and then discovered that from the homepage on an iPhone you can only access the promotions information (full of news of fantastic bingo games), and a selection of slots too, but no bingo for iPhone, or Android, or any smartphone in fact as it isn't at the time of writing compatible with a very many mobile devices on the market.
We headed to live help for some assistance in the hope we just needed to download an app or something, but while Lydia J who we spoke to was very helpful and answered all our questions confidently and comprehensively, we still couldn't access any bingo games and it was here we found out we wouldn't be able to either! However, thanks to the help from support, we did get all the information we needed to at least tell you what devices you need, what games are available from what device, and what exactly is available to play at Sun Bingo Mobile.
For access to slots, and the Candy Club and Jazz Club you must access the site from an iPad, or Galaxy Note. These are the only two available devices that will get you access to the bingo rooms, but if you do get in it's fantastic as you have access to the same rooms from your mobile as online, so you can just continue the game on the move. That said, we are hugely disappointed that a big site like Sun Bingo, using well known software from Gamesys have been so slow to get up to date with the mobile bingo market. There's no denying it's a bitter disappointment for fans of the site when so many other sites have such comprehensive mobile packages.
From any other device or smartphone you cannot access the bingo rooms at all but you can access a selection of the games. From the iPhone we accessed The Sun Winning Headlines, Double Bubble, Winstones, Red Carpet Riches, Fun in the Sun, and Valley of Kings. This is a fair selection of games for any player, but it doesn't really go any way to making up for the lack of bingo. It's Sun Bingo Mobile, we want bingo!
The games we can get on are pretty playable and the graphics render well, but those games aren't really a huge selection. The bingo itself renders well from all screen sizes on the desktop and we assume that means it plays well for iPad and Galaxy Note, but if you don't have one of these, you're going to miss out.
Great customer service, really helpful staff, a good looking mobile bingo site, but NO BINGO for many! So many good things to say about this brand usually, but Sun Bingo, pull your socks up.
