Despite only launching in 2011, Sky have put enormous effort into turning their bingo site into a huge brand. They now have one of the busiest bingo sites online and they pull all the stops out to keep those players loyal. Everything they do is brilliant, from the actual player experience to the range and quality of their bingo games and slots.

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 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.
Choose from a wide range of slots and casino games available at Sky Bingo, with favourites such as Castle Cashalot, Celebrity Big Brother, Clover Rollover, Irish Luck, Rainbow Riches,White Wizard, and Zodiac Supernova.
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’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.
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.
