Sky Bingo are one of the premier bingo operators within the UK market, serving thousands of players each and every month. Owned and operated by the multi-billion pound broadcaster BSkyB, they not only have the resources on hand to cover the biggest of wins but are also able to offer some of the finest customer service found anywhere in the industry. The bingo side of the company operates under the wider Sky Gaming and Betting brand, which also houses Sky Bet, Sky Poker and Sky Vegas, while staying true to the business ethics and branding of BSkyB; proof of which can be found in their tagline, “Believe in better bingo”.
You will find that Sky Bingo is fairly generous in this department, once you look beyond the meaningless bonus figures that are slapped across most bingo sites. While the £10 free bonus might seem relatively modest when compared to offers from other operators, the terms and conditions make it so much more enticing and viable. With no wagering requirements or absurd minimum withdrawal limits the bonus really comes into its own. In fact, after a little play time you can actually make a profit on the back of the bonus without ever really risking a penny. If this appeals to you then we recommend the following “method of extraction”:
- Register with Sky Bingo by clicking here or hitting the “Bet Now” button.
- Enter one of the many rooms on offer and enjoy your bingo.
- If have some luck and win some money then you can withdraw it whenever you are ready.
Usually there are terms and conditions that block you from doing this but Sky have been extremely upfront about their promotion and allowed players to come in and try their service, potentially taking some of their cash with them. In addition to this offer, once you have exhausted the £10 bonus you will often receive yet another free bonus soon afterwards. This bonus does have a 4x wagering requirement but nonetheless, it’s a nice touch.
It should be noted that existing customers of the Sky Gaming and Betting brand may not be eligible if they have received a free bet no deposit bonus on one of their other sites.
The Sky Bingo website is very easy to navigate around, even for users who aren’t overly confident with computers. Everything is labeled and positioned exactly how it should be, so you won’t be getting lost in a hurry. Players have the choice of playing either 75 or 90 ball bingo, which is a fairly common selection although many operators have now expanded their available selection to include the popular 30 ball game.
Sky have clearly used their position within the casino market to get themselves some very popular and entertaining side games to complement their well polished bingo solution. They offer some very high quality slots, scratch cards and table games such as:
- Rainbow Riches
- Deal or No Deal
- Bejeweled 2
- X Factor
- Sensible World of Soccer
- Britains Got Talent
- Clover Rollover
- Star Trek
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are literally hundreds of games on offer, more than enough to keep you busy for a while.
Customer Service & Payouts
Customer service and payouts, as you would expect from such a large company, are both exceptional. Telephone lines and email are both sufficiently manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customer service representatives are helpful, friendly and have the ability to solve your problem in a timely fashion without needing to “get the manager”. Brownie points should also be awarded for not outsourcing their support to a developing nation to cut costs, making your call as stress-free as possible.
Payouts are usually complete within 2 working days but can take up to 5 working days during exceptionally busy periods but we are yet to experience such a delay. Players outside of the UK may experience delays due to the nature of international bank transfers, which can take upto 14 business days and may also come with additional fees from the bank themselves.
