Company Name Tabcorp UK Limited
Everyone in the United Kingdom and Ireland will have heard of The Sun, no doubt. It’s a tabloid newspaper, which since 2012 has been in seven-day operation. Originally, it was founded as a broadsheet in 1964 as a successor to the Daily Herald. It was five years later that it became a tabloid newspaper and it had the top spot of the largest circulation of any daily newspaper until 2013. Fortunately, the company doesn’t halt its business solely at newspapers. Instead, it also manages to provide various other forms of media, including this online casino. Of course, it has a sole focus on the United Kingdom and Ireland, due to the fact that the newspaper is available in those countries. That being the case, players from within other countries are not able to access the range of games and website. However, those gamers who can sign up, will be in for a treat.

The site itself offers up a design which utilises the colours of the newspapers logo. Red and white. Therefore, this theme runs throughout the entire website. Along the top, you will find links to the Sun Bets, Sun Casino and Sun Casino Live options. The menu can be opened by clicking on the relevant button on the left hand side of the screen. This menu allows you to navigate between six different areas of the platform. You’ll see a scrolling banner on the homepage, advertising the welcome bonus and the live casino. And finally, underneath this is the first glimpse of the game lobby. On display, you will be able to see the ‘Sun Picks‘, which are the site’s most favoured games.

Software and Games

Main Software Providers

Playtech

While it’s quite common these days for online casinos to provide players with games from a range of developers, Sun Bets Casino doesn’t follow in suit. Instead, the platform enlists games only from the Playtech developer. Of course, this company is one of the biggest in the world, so you’ll certainly get your fair share of high quality offerings to access.

You’ll find that the slot games provide the biggest collection of such at this new slot site. In this category, you can play through titles such as White King, Batman & The Riddler Riches, Cops n’ Bandits, Cat in Vegas and Age of the Gods – Fate Sisters. However, it’s not only standard slot games that you can find at Sun Bets Casino. There’s a collection of progressive jackpot games on offer to you as well. This means that you are able to play your way through some games with exceptionally high pay outs. These include titles like Man of Steel, Superman II, Age of the Gods: King of Olympus and Funky Fruits.

If, on the other hand, you have a preference for playing casino table games, then you’re also in luck. There’s a ‘Roulette’ category, which offers up such options as European Roulette and Premium Roulette French. Joining this, you can access a variety of different blackjack games, which also have their own category. This section includes options like Blackjack Multihand 5. The remaining table games are also present in a third category, with video poker and other such games all being available. Of course, you can also play these types of games in a live dealer setting as well. There are six different options for you to access, including Live Baccarat and Live Casino Hold’em.

The range of promotions at an online casino are every bit as important as the selection of games. So, it’s fairly nice to see that this platform has a decent enough collection of such available to players. The first one of these that you are able to claim, is the welcome offer. Of course, this is only an option for newcomers to take advantage of. This welcome offer first of all gives you the chance to receive a bonus of 100% on top of your initial deposit. This has a maximum value to it of £100. In addition to this, the site will give you 25 free spins to use on one of the following four games: Age of the Gods, Age of the Gods: Furious 4, Age of the Gods: King of Olympus and Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom. Finally, you’ll receive a £5 bonus that is able to be put to use in the live casino. So, you’ll be able to get a little glimpse as to what it’s like to play games with a live dealer on hand.

The other two additions to the available promotions of this website, are for regular players to claim. The first one is for a £50 Live Blackjack bonus. This is available every single Wednesday. If you manage to be dealt a Blackjack twice in a row on this day in the live game, you’ll receive a £50 cash bonus. Thursday’s have a similar offering for playing Live Roulette. If you win on red three times in a row on a Thursday, you will receive a £10 casino bonus for more games. There’s also the possibility of having a set of special offers sent to your email inbox every so often, so make sure you keep a check on it.

Banking

Banking Options

Maestro, Mastercard, Neteller, POLi, PaySafeCard, Paypal, Visa, Visa Electron, Wire Transfer

We know that adding funds to your casino account needs to be something that is simple. And for that to be true, a platform needs to offer up a nice choice of payment methods for you to use. Sun Bets Casino doesn’t seem to want to follow in this path, and instead only offers up deposits by using a credit or debit card. These can come from either MasterCard or Visa, and this is the limit. It’s a bit of a shame, because even the addition of a single eWallet or alternative payment methods would make it more appealing. Of course, these options can also be put to use in order to process a withdrawal through, as can a standard bank transfer.

Licence

The Sun Bets Casino can prove that it has a fair gaming environment, as well as safe and secure regulations in place. This is due to the fact that it holds a gambling licence from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. You can find a few lines about this on display at the bottom of the website. However, for further information, you need to visit the company’s website. You can do this by clicking on the logo, which is also on display at the bottom of the site.

Contact Info & Social Activity

If you come to a point of needing some assistance while playing at this platform, there is a fairly informative Help Centre available for you to access. However, should you feel that this section does not offer up the relevant support, you can speak to the customer service team. They are reachable primarily via the live chat function, which is on hand on a 24/7 basis. Otherwise, you have the opportunity to call them on the phone by one of two different numbers. These phones are in operation between 7am and 11pm throughout the week. And finally, you can send an email along to the team by filling out the form that the site provides. This is also available on a 24/7 basis as well.

As far as social media activity goes, the only platform that the casino is active on, is Twitter. The platform has quite a nice level of activity on this outlet, so you can Tweet them easily enough. And, you can expect to receive help via this method as well.

Conclusion

Sun Bets Casino is quite a nice online casino to play at. The promotions might feel a little bit lack, especially in the case of regular gamers. However, the range of games is quite nice, as is the ability to receive support around the clock. We also appreciate the design of the site, tying in with the newspaper’s colours, as well as the range of live casino games. The platform’s biggest downfall though, is the minimal choice of depositing methods that it accepts.
