Sky Bingo Bonus Review
Sky has long held a reputation as the UK’s No.1 entertainment brand, and is known as a veritable financial heavyweight. Sky Bingo takes a serious and professional approach to winning some serious prizes. Its bingo website is clear, understated and incredibly informative, with a simple toolbar down one side brimming with all the latest bonuses and promotions. The site needs no flashing lights or massive fonts to catch the players’ attention; the range and scale of the prizes alone is enough to impress, with new updates appearing regularly.
The gaming is well organised, with bingo rooms split into two categories: network rooms and local rooms. The network rooms provide a boost to prize funds for players who prefer to spend more and win larger prizes. Local rooms offer lower ticket prices to members who want to make their bingo budget last longer. As a result, Sky Bingo is able to offer a vast range of games to suit all appetites, from free or penny bingo to those who are hungry for the biggest prizes out there.
Sky Bingo’s welcome bonus package is one of the most inviting deals out there. Players who sign up and spend £5 in their first two days receive £35 to play with. Of this, £25 is a free bonus to use on any games, and £10 is for selected games only. Of course, the shiny gold slogan advertising this bonus reads “spend £5, play with £40”, which can be slightly misleading – but even when you consider that £5 of the £40 was your own initial payment, a welcome bonus of £35 remains a generous starting prize.
Win a Christmas
In this season of goodwill, Sky Bingo is giving away a £1,000 deluxe Christmas package on every day of November. A total of £30,000 worth of hampers, food vouchers, presents, crackers – and even a fully decorated Christmas tree – will be given away. All players are automatically eligible for these bonuses: every £10 cash staked on bingo or £20 on slots, earns the player one ticket in the daily draw, with no cap on the number of possible entries.
November’s £50k Fridays
Friday the 6th, 13th and 20th of November are guaranteed big money bingo nights, with £50,000 available to give away in the Anytime Room on each day. The Sky Bingo site has a clear listing on its promotions page with a timetable of the day’s highlights, including the game name, ticket price, time and prize.
Sky Bingo has a number of mid-week extra bonus offers on Wednesdays:
- 10 bonuses of £25 will be awarded to members who ‘like’ the day’s Facebook post, and comment with their bingo chat name
- Roll-on bingo can be played between 6pm and midnight, at a different location each hour
- Anyone playing 10 games of bingo will be awarded a surprise number of bonus loyalty points
- At 10pm in the Community Room you can enjoy ‘No Lose Hour’
- Those who took part in Tuesday’s ‘Play Today, Party Tomorrow’ bonus will automatically qualify for an extra hour in the Party Room, with the chance to win another £500 of bonus money
During each Wednesday in November there is also a chance for players to receive up to 25% cashback on their net losses, from a different game each week.
Super 6 Bonus
Sky Bingo is also offering quite a unique bonus for its sports-loving members. Its “Super 6 League” is running throughout the 2015-16 football season. Each Saturday, players submit predictions for six featured games. If all six predictions are correct, there’s a bonus £250,000 jackpot (with a consolation bonus of £5,000 if the jackpot isn’t won). Scoring well on your predictions will give you a good place in the league, and whoever holds top spot in the league each month wins a £100 cash prize.
Changes have been made to some of Sky Bingo’s jackpots, with the aim to include more people in the winnings. In certain rooms, once a jackpot has been won the new jackpot will have an increased ball count, which means it will be won more often. Four jackpots are also being designated as ‘community’ jackpots, where the winner receives 50% of the prize, and the remaining 50% is shared between the other players. In reality, these shared bonuses are unlikely to be record-breaking but the extra few pounds of winnings is never a bad thing.
Payments are accepted via debit card (Visa, Visa debit and Visa electron) and credit card (Maestro, MasterCard). Members can also make payments from PayPal accounts. As long as each payment method accepts a withdrawal, you can have a maximum of three cards on your Sky Bingo account at any given time.
There is a ‘Help & Support’ section on the Sky Bingo website that has a list of FAQs by category. Members can search the section, or ask for help on twitter (@skybethelp). There is also an option to contact the support team by email, phone or live chat.
Sky Bingo is clearly a very slick and well-run company, with a wide range of promotions to attract gamers of all kinds. The site is not as loud or as colourful as its counterparts’, but the range of offers and prizes is enough to speak – or shout – for itself. Sky Bingo delivers on the everyday, value-for-money features, and also outshines many of its competitors in the sheer size of its jackpots and the number of its promotions. A perfect site for genuine bingo-lovers.
