Sky Bingo Review

Sky Bingo is the most recent venture from Sky Betting and Gaming, having successfully operated an online casino, poker room and betting site for a number of years. Sky Bingo can be played via the website, but Sky customers can also play via interactive television through Sky TV. Like several of its competitors, Sky Bingo uses the high-quality software provider Virtual Fusion which is a company with a strong reputation in gaming software.

Sky Bingo is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC). The software used by Sky Bingo is powered by Virtue Fusion who use a random number generator developed by Sun Microsystems, meaning that Sky Bingo games are fair for players.
