About Sun Bets

Sun Bets is brand new as of 2016 and was launched by the globally renowned Sun enterprise owned by News International. The very same Sun brand who run the The Sun newspaper, Sun Bingo, Sun Play, Sun Casino and so on. So they’re no stranger to the gambling scene and it appears as though this is their foot in the sportsbook door.

They appear to be aggressively sponsoring a number of popular televised events, which is also propped up by various other ventures in their fantasy football offering, casino and paper based adverts. One to watch!

Must try harder

I can see why The Sun are venturing into sportsbook betting, but often you get the impression that some brands should keep to their area of expertise. I can't see them competing with the big boys, but they have an audience to market to so they'll do well. But they need some work!

  • Clean website simple and easy to use
  • Looks great on mobile
  • Trustworthy brand (somewhat)
  • The site could use some additions
  • Its not the most innovative offering
  • Basic welcome offer
Bonus, Offers & Promo Codes

A standard welcome offer and is very attractive, simply Bet £5 & Get a £10 Free Bet. Perhaps simplicity within the welcome bonus scenario is what users are seeking in a battle to beat the bookies bonus terms and conditions, wagering and so on.

There’s currently not much else to talk about in terms of promotions, they have best odds guaranteed on horse racing which is pretty standard these days. They’re new to market so perhaps one to watch as they grow.

Inplay & Cashout

The in-play system is standard to basic at times, but you get everything you need from an in-play system. Live events and useful navigation to move between each category with relative ease. When you click into a popular event like a football match, you are given a useful digital commentary frame with insights and statistics on the live markets. Its looks better than it is in fairness, the markets could be presented as buttons and the TV like display needn’t be so overwhelming.

There does not appear to be a cash out feature as part of the main site offering, this appears to be an in app feature

The Website

Let’s give the guys at Sun the benefit of the doubt for now, its new and they’re catching up with some of the best in the business. The site is very basic, which might appeal to those who just want no thrills gambling, uninterrupted betting. The stripped back version could be right up your street if you get annoyed by the flashing casino banners that are characteristic of some betting sites or constant popups trying to lure you into other areas of the site. Its simplicity may define itself as a USP, who knows its too early to tell where Sun Bets will end up in the market, but for now they are providing a basic offering in their website.

Mobile & App

Controversially the site looks great on mobile, clean, crisp and easy to navigate. The menu’s slide open from the side of your handset in their responsive design and you’re not overwhelmed by huge menus. You’re simply given the most popular categories which through handy navigation direct you towards the pages you need for the market you wish to bet on.

The App download is similar to the mobile site but with some additional features thrown in, like adding events to your phones calendar, plus cash out and further access to Casino, Live Casino & Slots.

Download is available for both Android & Apple devices.

Customer Service

As expected from a successful brand they have carefully considered their support offering, with access to Live Chat, Email, FAQs, Telephone all clearly indicated within a useful help centre.

Like the rest of the site, this section is simple to navigate and not overcrowded. Support information is transparent and easy to find
