A global collaboration has brought one of the world’s most well-known newspapers into the world of online casinos. Australian company Tabcorp is handling the gaming side of things while Britain’s popular The Sun newspaper lending its brand recognition to the brand new Sun Bets Casino. Fans of the popular Sun Bingo site will rejoice at the expansion and can rest assured that the same level of quality and fun that has made Sun Bingo and industry leader is present in this new casino.
Tabcorp is a familiar name to Australian punters, but this Sun Bets partnership is going to serve as an introduction to the company for many European players. Tabcorp has been operating since the mid-1990s, and has served millions of players down under in the decades since. The company has been massively successful, and is among the largest publicly listed gaming companies on the planet, and further growth and success seems likely with this newest offering.
In terms of games on the site, an existing relationship between Sun Bingo and Playtech made it an easy decision to turn to the software giant to supply Sun Bets with a roster of top-notch games. The fact that Playtech is already familiar with the Sun and their gaming division means the growing pains should be at a minimum as the casino moves into the future
Sun Bets Casino on desktop units utilises an Instant Play philosophy, where any user with an internet connection can play games within their browser without having to download any additional software. The site is optimised to take advantage of the latest web design software, which makes it incredibly fast and responsive within a browser. In terms of mobile gaming, Sun Bets offers users the option of playing within their device’s browser much as they would on a desktop, but they have also created dedicated Android and iOS applications that take greater advantage of the specific operating system they are run on.
Sun Bets is very young, but they have made that an asset by surveying the current state of online casinos and incorporating many of the best features in the industry into their casino offering. This means a clean, crisp layout following a minimalistic design scheme, as well as an increased focus on usability.
Exploring the site is incredibly easy and intuitive, with a clearly labelled drop-down in the top left corner of the screen providing links to a number of casino subsections, such as current promotions, the help centre, and even a casino blog. Beneath a rotating banner that is scrolling through current promotions, offers, and highlighted games users will find the casino’s roster of games broken down into helpful categories that make it easy to find specific games.
A particularly helpful feature of the casino is the ability to play test games. This allows customers to get a handle on how a game works and whether or not they enjoy the look, feel, and theme before they put any real money on the line.
Playtech has been an industry leader when it comes to online casino software and games since the earliest days of the industry, and as such they have one of the richest and deepest game portfolios around. The company has created some of the most beloved digital casino games of the past and continues to produce cutting-edge products every year, and Sun Bets has their pick of the best of both worlds.
Players will find dozens of games on offer, including well-known slot games such as Leprechaun’s Luck and Monty Python’s Life of Brian. The incredibly popular line of Marvel Comics-branded progressive slots is also present on the site. In terms of non-slot games, there is a tremendous selection of classic casino offerings such as Roulette, Blackjack, and Caribbean Stud Poker. Live casino fans will find plenty to enjoy, with multiple styles of live Roulette and Blackjack as well as solo versions of Baccarat and Casino Hold’em available on the site.
The promotions page at Sun Bets features bonus offers for both their casino and sportsbook, with a tab allowing players to alternate between the two lists. Welcome bonus offers as well as multi-week promotions are featured here for casino players, with additional offers such as a Slot Game of the Week finding their way to the homepage banner.
Support and Banking
A lengthy and informative FAQ section can be found on the site, and it will answer most questions players may have. Anything not covered there, however, can be solved by Sun Bets’ professional support staff, which is accessible 24/7 through live chat and email, or by phone from 7am-11pm every day. Additionally, a Twitter account has been created to further assist users, and can be reached by Tweeting to @SunBetsHelp.
Sun Bets currently only allows for a select number of deposit and withdrawal methods, but should add more in the future. Currently major funding options such as Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards are the best way to go at the site.
Players have come to know and love the gaming division of the Sun thanks to Sun Bingo, and Sun Bets Casino more than lives up to that standard. A crisp, responsive, and user-friendly website provides players access to an incredible selection of games. Look for Sun Bets to continue to grow and succeed for years to come!
