If you’re anything like us, then an enjoyable Friday night is logging on for a few games of online bingo, but if you logged onto any of the Gamesys sites tonight, you may have noticed a serious Friday night failure on the part of the network. Every site that uses Gamesys software, including Sun Bingo, Virgin Bingo, Heart Bingo and Fabulous Bingo are all down and giving error messages. If you wanted to log on for a few games, you won’t be doing so on the Gamesys software.
An error message across the sites say that they are carrying out site maintenance, to make the experience even better than before. We don’t know what they mean by that, or whether they are actually making improvements. Could this be the point we see mobile bingo launching, or is there some other planned maintenance that players didn’t know about?
Here’s the message we get when we try and access Sun Bingo right now, and it’s the same across the other sites. The message is almost identical across all the sites, and although they say ‘remember to set your alarm clocks and join us for more fun and games’, they don’t actually state when the sites will be back online.
We’re not sure if Friday nights are generally a busy night for bingo, but it does seem an off time to take the sites offline. We’ve been checking Gamesys daily for news of mobile bingo, after all as market leaders they seem pretty late on the upkeep. We are hoping this downtime could mean a new mobile app on the way for sites like Sun Bingo, but we really shouldn’t speculate too much until we know exactly what’s going on.
Let’s hope Sun Bingo will be back tomorrow, along with Virgin Bingo and the others and that we’ll all be able to access the bingo rooms yet again.
