Sky Bingo also features the exclusive Tipping Point Bingo game, based on the hit TV series – you won’t find this game on any other bingo site, not even others on the Virtue Fusion network.
Sky Bingo Games
Sky Bingo runs on the Virtue Fusion platform (formerly known as Playtech) so if you’ve ever played on a Virtue Fusion site before, you might recognise some of the games available. However, Sky Bingo also has its own exclusive games too.
- Love Island Bingo – Brand new for 2018, this game is based off the hit ITV2 TV show. Love Island Bingo Room between 9pm & 11pm every night. Tickets cost 20p. The full promotional period is Friday 1st June 2018 – Friday 31st August 2018. 1 holiday & 4 merchandise packs available to win per day between 1st June & 31st July. Holiday winners will be contacted within 7 working days on winning and provided with details of details of how to claim. It is the winner’s responsibility to ensure all contact details are up to date. Prizes will be won on selected games as house prizes. Merchandise winners will not be contacted and will be sent to the address on the winning account. Any winners who happen to share will receive the value split equally between all winners. Full T&C’s apply.
- Deal or No Deal Bingo – Exclusive to Virtue Fusion sites, Deal or No Deal bingo is based off the popular TV show. At the beginning of the game every player is given a box which contains a hidden value. As numbers are called out, the values inside the boxes on the board will be revealed. At the end of the game, the winner will receive an offer from the banker – and it’s up to them to choose Deal or No Deal, although the other players can cast a vote for the box they think the winner should select.

Sky Bingo on Mobile and Tablet
Sky Bingo is fully optimised for mobile play, which is great news for anyone who loves to play on their smartphone or tablet. There’s also an iPhone app available through the iOS App Store which looks basically identical to the mobile browser version of the site, and it runs nice and quickly – although it’s best to use it in portrait mode, as landscape messes with the layout. In portrait mode, however, it all looks great and is easy to navigate and use, with a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen which makes searching for games really easy. If you’re a mobile player, you can easily switch between your Sky Bingo, Vegas, Poker and Bet profiles, all from the same account, as they’re all available on mobile together. If you’re an Android user, you can download the app from the Sky Bingo site, although you’ll have to make sure your security settings allow you to install the app as there’s presently no app available through Google Play.
Sky Bingo Usability and Registration
Sky Bingo’s login bar is located at the top right of the screen, and if you want to open the bingo lobby, you just click on ‘play bingo’ on the navigation bar to bring up the bingo sidebar (you can also login from here too!). The site is simple in its layout and with an appealing colour scheme of white and purple, it matches the aesthetic of other Sky products, making it instantly recognisable to anyone who’s even watched a Sky advert, even if it is a bit plain for such a big name site.
Sky Bingo Final Thoughts
Whilst we weren’t overly impressed by the design and layout of the Sky Bingo site, the variety and quality of the bingo games available more than make up for this superficial issue – if you’re a fan of Tipping Point, the exclusive bingo variant is a must! We like how Sky offer plenty of free and BOGOF bingo, with a generous deposit bonus – this makes it an ideal site for first-time bingo players, though if you’re a seasoned fan you probably won’t find much new here. We’d give this site a 6/10.
