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.
This was corrected easily enough just by using our registered email and password. A pop-up appeared and we had to accept the new T&C’s for Sun Bingo and then we were able to access the main lobby.
Subtle Changes At Sun Bingo
We were expecting that the lobby of the new Sun Bingo would look like that at other Virtue Fusion sites, we were mistaken. Instead what you will find when you check out the new site is a lobby that looks pretty much like it did when it was powered by the Gamesys software.
As you can see, whilst there are more tabs to choose from, the overall layout is the same. Navigation to where you want to go on site is simplistic and there’s an abundance of information from the lobby to help you make a decision as to which room suits your gaming requirements.
With few changes to the lobby, we then turned our attention to the bingo games – is there where the new site was set to disappoint?
Bingo At Sun Bingo
Stepping into a bingo room at the new site was just as it was before! Purchasing tickets even worked in the same way (although you can buy more) and even when the game was in play, the differences again were quite subtle and not at all like we expected.
The changes that were obvious were that you could see more tickets in play than on the Gamesys software (as you can see in the image below)
and, one of two things the screamed Virtue Fusion to us, you can see your tickets in a more Simplified View.
