Sun Bets Sportsbook ReviewSun Bets Sportsbook Review

Attention! Unfortunately, Sun Bets suspended its operations, however, feel free to explore other betting site reviews on our website for an enjoyable betting experience.

As part of the huge Sun newspaper group, Sun Bets already has a strong profile with the British public and even though they only went online as recently as 2016, that would have been enough to get them a good set of early customers.

As you’d expect, this is a bookie that is backing Britain so there is lots here for us all to enjoy starting with a quick and easy welcome deal.

Sun Bets Promotions

New players as Sun Bets can get a £10.00 free bet when they open a new account and deposit £5.00. So, while there may be bigger offers elsewhere, this has a low entry point and the terms are fair and simple to follow.

Sign up with a few details, make that deposit and then place a bet with minimum qualifying odds of 1/2 (1.50). Sun Bets will then issue your £10.00 free bet token within 48 hours of that qualifier being placed.

There are some specials and many of these are one offs so keep checking your account for full details. As an example of what you can find, Sun Bets had a promo for 2017 in the Champions League and Europa League where, you backed a team in the outrights and every time they won you got a free bet token.

It’s a small set of offers but it’s a good start and there is some value as you move forward with your account.

Sporting Markets and Odds Value

Sun Bets have worked hard to appeal to a UK market when choosing their list of sporting events and there should be enough here for us all to enjoy.

Football, Tennis, American Football, Australian Rules, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Football, GAA Football, Golf, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motor Sport, Pool, Horse Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker and Winter Sports.

That’s a set of sports that will have a wider reach beyond the British Isles but it’s certainly good to see a bookie getting behind horse racing. Specials from entertainment and politics are here at the same time.

Sun Bets have yet to appear on the odds comparison sites but the group’s profile suggests they may be on them before too long. In the meantime, prices look good here with football a clear speciality.

    At the time of writing in May 2017 you could only fund your Sun Bets account with a debit card. This is the option that most bettors in the UK will prefer so that’s acceptable and transactions are instant with no fees.

    However, it would certainly give more flexibility if an eWallet provider, particularly Skrill and, or Neteller were added to that list.

    Live ChatYes

    The help facilities at Sun Bets could be easier to find but they are plentiful and should cover all our desired options. There is a live chat operator and the window pops up at various points on the home page to answer your issues in the fastest possible time.

    If, however, you like to keep things a little more anonymous, you can contact the operator by email or there is a very helpful set of frequently asked questions.


    Some potential customers look at the welcome deal laid out by Sun Bets and they may be expecting more from such an established brand. However, this is fair by a new bookie’s standards and it is very easy to get hold of that £10.00 token.

    For UK players, the real benefits come with strong prices in all the sports we love and really, that’s what we’re mostly looking for in a bookmaker so there are enough good reasons to give Sun Bets a go.

    Pros (+):

    • Welcome bonus worth up to £10.00 as a free bet token when you stake an opening £5.00 bet
    • Ongoing offers rotate on a regular basis
    • Great prices including frequent enhanced odds deals on a number of sports

    Cons (-):

    • Small set of funding options as at May 2017 – only Debit Cards available
