Wayne's Sky Bingo Review
I quite like Sky Bingo, even though at first glance it doesn't look like there is a lot going on.
The site design is really simple, with just a very basic homepage and a couple of links in the nav that show you promotions and slots (arcade). However, once you get into the bingo lobby you'll quickly find that Sky Bingo actually has a bunch of exclusive bingo rooms and they even have Session Bingo, which is something not all the top bingo sites can offer.
They haven't overcomplicated things, which is where many sites go wrong. Overall a decent site, which of course has the benefit of being attached to the wider Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino, etc.
Why Sky Bingo got blacklisted
It may not be immediately obvious, but most of the big review sites have actually blacklisted Sky Bingo and no longer promote it. This is because a few years ago they closed down their affiliate program, which meant review sites would no longer make any commission in referring players to go and play there.
As a result, review sites started to hide Sky Bingo from their most popular pages and some even go as far as hiding their 'play now' buttons or if they do have a play button, it then takes you to a page that says "this site is not available" so that you don't go and play there.
Now I am in the same boat on this one. I won't get any money from Sky if you go and join them from this review. However, I think it is not right to mislead players or prevent players from visiting Sky if they want to check it out. That's why if you click on the visit site button on my site, it will take you directly there.
At the end of the day it is one of the top bingo brands in the UK so you should probably give it a go.
Sky Bingo is on the popular Playtech bingo network and therefore has a great mixture of rooms including several bingo variants like Age of the Gods Bingo and Fluffy Favourites Bingo. Sky have also invested in some exclusive variants that you can't play anywhere else, such as Potion Shop and Mystical Bingo. It was even the first site to go live with Deal or No Deal Bingo Multiplier.

Sky is also one of just a few bingo sites who have session bingo. This is like you get in the clubs and you buy a whole session worth of bingo tickets for one fixed price. Just click on the Session Bingo tab from the bingo lobby and you'll see all of the sessions for the coming week.
There are four sessions every day:
- Morning: 9.00am - 9.56am
- Afternoon: 1.00pm - 1.56pm
- Evening: 7.00pm - 7.55pm
- Twilight: 11.00pm - 11.56pm
Morning sessions cost £3, afternoon and twilight sessions are £5 and the main evening session is just £7 entry. This will get 15 games of bingo across the hour, with the biggest prize money reserved for the last few games.
