SkyBingo has a huge variety of bingo games and a number of slots too from leading companies such as Playtech, Eyecon and Barcrest. As this is a Playtech-driven site it might come as no surprise when you learn that the bingo software here is provided by Playtech associate Virtue Fusion.

VIPs and Regular Bonuses

Sky usually get things right with most things that they do and that includes Sky Bingo. There are all kinds of regular bonuses and promotions available at all times, so keep one eye on the promotions tab at this site at all times so that you can get your hands on the latest Sky Bingo bonus code. The site deals with regular cashback and double prize money offers, plus half-priced ticket sales. In fact, there is a promotion available at Sky Bingo each and every day of the year.

All this promotional goodness helps to mask the pain of there not being any kind of VIP or loyalty bonus scheme available at the site. This should not put you off joining Sky Bingo though, as it’s clear that the site treats ALL its players as VIPs, no matter how frequently they play or how much money they spend at the site.

Mobile Experience and App

You will find apps for all of Sky’s many wagering options available as mobile apps. If you go to Google Play you will easily be able to locate and install the Sky Bingo app to your Android-powered mobile phone or device. Unfortunately there is no Sky Bingo app available for owners of iPhones and iPads. Users of iOS-based devices should not despair though as they can still play at the SkyBingo site using your phone or tablet and your usual browser.

The vast majority of games, including ALL the bingo games, are available to play on most mobile devices. Virtue Fusion’s bingo software works incredibly well on mobiles.

Games and Software Providers

There are a large number of bingo options available to all players at this site. The main games are 75-ball bingo which the type of bingo played in America, and 90-ball bingo which is more commonly found in the UK. There is also 80-ball bingo in which bingo tickets are sold with the numbers in a 4×4 grid. You may be able to play ‘special’ bingo variations where you can win by marking off all four corners of your card, or by completing a specific pattern.

If you get bored with bingo you’ll find lots of slotting options too, such as ‘Fluffy Favourites’ as made by Eyecon, and several slots by Playtech. There are a handful of table games too.

Payment Options

Don’t expect a mountain of payment options at this site. You can register a debit card with this site, or you can link your PayPal account. Common alternatives such as Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard simply are not available here. You can make a minimum £5 deposit using a card, or £10 using PayPal.

Withdrawals can only be made to a card or PayPal too. Processing is not particularly fast – if you request your money on a Friday then you are unlikely to get your money by the following Wednesday at a minimum.

FAQs

Q. Can I get SkyTV for free if I sign up for Sky Bingo?

  1. No, the companies behind Sky TV and Sky Bingo are separate entities, even though they both exist under the Sky umbrella.

Q. Do I need a separate log in for Sky Bingo, Sky Vegas, Sky Poker, etc …?

  1. No! If you sign up for Sky Bingo you will also be signing up for Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino, Sky Poker, Sky Bingo, Sky Lotto, Sky Super 6, Sky Fantasy Football, Sporting Life, ITV7 Racing, Sky Selector and SkyBet EFL Rewards.

Q. I don’t like slots – can I use my £20 Sky Games bonus on bingo?

  1. No, unfortunately the £20 Sky Games Bonus cannot be transferred. Your Sky Games Bonus can only be used on the popular Barcrest slot Rainbow Riches, and no other.

Q. Why doesn’t Sky Bingo run a VIP scheme?

  1. We think that is because Sky believes that all players should be treated exactly the same, no matter how much they spend at the site. All the many, many promotions that are available to Sky Bingo players are available to all players, and at all times.

Q. I have a Skrill account. Why can’t I use Skrill at Sky Bingo?

  1. Not all online slots sites allow the use of Skrill or similar alternative such as Neteller or Paysafecard. Unfortunately there have been a few examples of fraudulent eWallet accounts being linked to Sky Bingo player accounts and as long ago as 2014 Sky made the decision to suspend the use of Skrill (and Neteller) at all their wagering sites. They have not yet decided to reinstate them, and very probably never will.
