New Sun Bingo Television Advert

Monday, Mar. 12th 2018 4:36 AM

Over the years we have seen many adverts from our favourite online bingo sites; some of which have been great, and others not so much. In our humble opinion, for an advert to be successful, it must be funny, catchy and memorable whilst still portraying the message they want to get across. Sun Bingo have recently released their offering, and we must say, it’s up there with the best of them.

The star of the advert is a comedian called Jayde Adams. You might not recognise the name, but she has quite a CV including winning the Funny Women award in 2014 and being nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2016, She also has a couple of television appearances under her belt including an appearance on 8 Out Of 10 Cats; So, she seems a perfect fit for Sun Bingo.

Sun Bingo Powered By Virtue Fusion

Saturday, Aug. 27th 2016 7:18 AM

When we first heard the news that Sun Bingo was migrating its games away from Gamesys to Virtue Fusion, to say we were shocked was an understatement [read more here]. We thought the move would be one that made the brand just like many others that already used the software and that the site would lose many customers. However, the move has now happened and yesterday we visited the site to see just how bad things were. We were more than pleasantly surprised to find that actually, very little has changed!

At first, when we arrived at Sun Bingo we thought the changes were still imminent. The site looks pretty much exactly as it did before the migration! However, when trying to login we found that our username/password combination was not working.

Sun Bingo Moving To Playtech / Virtue Fusion

Tuesday, Dec. 1st 2015 7:07 AM

When it comes to well-known bingo brands, Sun Bingo is up there with some of the biggest names in the industry. Whilst the site originally launched on the tombola software, August 2008 saw the brand move to the ‘proprietary’ Gamesys software. It would seem that on the eighth anniversary of the original move, Sun Bingo are migrating again.

It’s been reported that Virtue Fusion, the bingo division of Playtech, have signed a deal with News UK, the owners of Sun Bingo and Fabulous Bingo, to provide their software. The deal was announced yesterday and the migration is set to happen in August 2016.

Sun Bingo Mobile – Now You See It, Now You Don’t

Monday, Sep. 9th 2013 7:20 AM

With so many mobile bingo sites launching, we’re always keeping our eye on who will be next. Last week we noticed a ‘now for mobile’ banner at Sun Bingo, so we were excited to try out the newest offering, and finally try out the Gamesys software for mobile.

However, when we tried to access the site from an iPhone this week, we discovered there was no bingo, and the ‘now for mobile’ banner has disappeared from the Sun Bingo website. You can still access the site from your mobile phone or tablet. There’s no app to download, but the mobile version is laid out slightly differently to the desktop version. There’s no doubt you’re at Sun Bingo, the branding is strong throughout, it’s just a shame that bingo doesn’t make a single appearance.
