The Sun Bingo is one of the biggest bingo brands out there, with backing from a huge newspaper and numerous TV campaigns it's easy to see why they've grown to be the giant they are today.
Upon arrival at Sun Bingo it's very clear that the site has a special offer, it's a good one too! Sun are offering you a 300% deposit bonus, in simple terms this means spend a tenner and you'll be on the recieving end of £40 to play with. The other thing you'll notice about the site is it's RED! This probably won't be a surprise, however if you don't like red you should probably leave now.
Becoming a member...
Strangely it took me a good few seconds to actually spot the 'Join Now' button, it's located in the top left - for some reason my eye is always naturally pulled to the right! Anyway, as you would expect from a site that's been around a good while, Sun Bingo has got it's registration nicely polished. They don't require a whole lot of information before they'll accept you as a member, they do not ask for card details on registration either, which may please some people.
Once you're in, the tour from Daubie the Dauber begins..
The lobby at Sun Bingo is clearly set out and newcomers probably won't have any trouble getting around, you'll notice that the bingo room at the top of the list is the 'Learners' room, if you enter that, you'll get a nice personalised tour from 'Daubie' who will show you around the site and indeed the game of bingo. If you're not new to the concept of bingo, you'll probably hit the 'skip' button, either way this is a nice touch and a sweet feature from Sun Bingo.
When you access the site via a PC the whole gaming experience is brought to you in flash, I actually found the site took quite a while to load but once it does, the graphics are sharp and vivid (and mostly red!).
Finding your way back to the lobby is always easy - there is a big button at the top of the page, and from there you have access to all of the bingo and slots games available at the site.
The slots and bingo...
We were pleased to see that this site offers a whole load of exclusive slots games, a welcome change. Here you'll find games such as 'Winning Headlines' which you can play from 1P! Other slots games also include 'Mystic Meg' and 'Wonderland' which at the time of writing has a jackpot of over £242,000, that should help you get over the lack of Fluffy Favourites and the like!
The bingo is everything you would expect, the ticket price varies and some games can be played for just 1P!
Free Bingo and games..
Unfortunately, as is just about always the case, to play the 'free' games you have to make a deposit in the real money games. That said, once you've made the deposit the free games here are pretty decent - but you can only play ONE each week. Anyway, negative stuff aside, heres more about those free games:
-Doubly Bubbly - this isn't bingo, but it is fun, simply open up the game and find matching symbols on a grid in order to win cash prizes
-Wheel of Destiny - Spin the wheel to find out what the wheel of destiny has in store for you.. It could be a cash prize!
-Sundown Park Slots (new game)- This free slots game gives you the chance to win cash prizes and upto 115 free spins!
-Free Bingo 90 - this is the only free bingo game we found, it seems to play daily at 7pm.
The withdrawal procedure..
Providing you have verified your email address by hitting the 'verify' button in the email that Sun will have sent to you, and, providing you have more than £10 worth of real money in your account, withdrawing is a very easy process which will take around 24 hours! This is excellent given the tendancy of certain operators to complicate the process and make it more lengthy, probably in the hope you'll make a reversal.
All in all this is a good solid bingo site, it offers the obligatory bingo and slots, but also scratchcards, session bingo and other games such as snap.
Despite the game being slightly slow to load on some browsers we would reccommend that you give it a shot, the sooner the better given that right now you'll get a 300% welcome bonus!
