Sky Bingo Review

Sky Bingo is yet another arm of the hugely popular Sky gaming brand, which includes Sky Casino, Sky Poker and Sky Vegas.

Just like its sister brands, Sky Bingo is built to an incredibly high standard, and offers a robust, reliable and unwavering bingo gaming experience, run on the Virtue Fusion network.

You would be forgiven for thinking Sky Bingo contained a relatively generic range of games and rooms, but dig a little deeper and you will soon see that the games offered include Sky exclusive titles alongside lucrative promotional offers and sign-up bonuses. It’s not difficult to see why Sky Bingo has become one of the most inviting and highly regarded bingo sites around.

Let’s begin by looking at some of the games available.

Bingo Games

Sky Bingo ScheduleSky Bingo offers a range of both exclusive and non-exclusive games.

One of the most popular exclusive games is ‘Tipping Point Bingo’, which runs from 12PM to 10PM GMT each day with tickets starting from just 10 pence. New games begin every 5 minutes, making it both an exciting and regular game to get involved with.

Another Sky exclusive is ‘Mystical’, a slightly more expensive game costing £1 per ticket. This game runs every 20 minutes during the day, and embraces a forest like theme to offer players an enchanting bingo adventure.

Of course, alongside the Sky Exclusives you will also find a range of classic Virtue Fusion games, although on Sky, many of them are branded differently than on other sites. One example of this is ‘Sky Anytime 90-ball Bingo’, which is a straightforward bingo game with tickets priced at 15 pence. This is one of the most popular games on the site, regularly attracting 400+ players even during the traditionally quieter times of day.

The full range of games can be found from the main Sky Bingo homepage by clicking on the ‘Bingo Lobby’ link, which will show you all of the games that are soon to start allowing you to plan your gaming experience accordingly.

Side Games

Sky Bingo Side GamesSky Bingo is known for offering a large number of slots from a few different game developers, and you’ll find a stellar range of both jackpot and non-jackpot titles to choose from here.

Some of the developers featured include Quickspin, IGT and Playtech, and if you’re looking to hit life changing amounts of money then the good news is there are over 30 different jackpots, ranging from the £1,000,000 waiting to be won on ‘Clover Rollover’, to the more modest £114,000 and £149,000 found playing ‘The Banker’s Riches’ and ‘Deal of No Deal: Quick Scratch’, respectively.

The slots are located under the ‘Games’ tab next to the main ‘Play Bingo’ tab on the navigation menu, and you can use the handy search function to whittle down the games by type, category, jackpot or no jackpot.

There’s a couple of casino table games to choose between, although the range on offer is lot smaller than we thought we would see, with just a single variation of Roulette and Blackjack to take advantage of.

Of course, if you want a greater selection you can simply head to the ‘Sky Vegas’ or ‘Sky Casino’ tabs at the top most navigation menu to enter the different areas of the site. The game range there is far more substantial.

Loyalty Program

Sky LoyaltySky Bingo doesn’t offer a VIP scheme, instead opting for a loyalty rewards promotion that is open to all players. The scheme does what it says on the tin, and from the moment you sign up and begin playing, you’ll accumulate what are known as Loyalty Gems; these can be traded in for cash, additional reload bonuses and more. Even better, you don’t need to opt-in; all players are entered automatically.

There are six different Loyalty Gems, and all use the same earning requirements. Each £1 wagered on bingo awards 5 points, while every £1 wagered on side games awards 1 point. The various tiers of the loyalty scheme are shown in the table below:

Loyalty Gem Level No. of Gems Required No. Gems to Maintain Your Level
Opal 450 325
Sapphire 1,200 825
Ruby 2,500 1,850
Emerald 5,500 4,000
Diamond 20,000 12,750

Payments and Withdrawals

Sky Bingo LogoA large number of deposit and withdrawal methods are available for you to take advantage of at Sky Bingo, and alongside all major Credit/Debit cards, you’ll also be able to use some of the more popular EWallets, most notably PayPal.

This allows for fee free instant deposits, and possibly one of the most attractive aspects of playing at Sky Bingo is the fact that PayPal withdrawals – subject to your account being fully verified – are processed instantly, meaning you can see your money in your PayPal account within minutes.

Processing times for all other withdrawal methods vary, but they generally take around a day or even quicker, particularly if your account is fully verified and has a history of successful withdrawals.

Withdrawal limits are also very generous, and unless you hit one of the largest progressive jackpots on the site, you’ll run into no issues withdrawing whatsoever.
