Sun Bets Review
Dear Bettor! We are sorry to inform you that Sun Bets ceased its betting operations – be sure to check out our other bookmaker reviews though!
The leading newspaper in the United Kingdom, The Sun, launched not long ago a bookmaker website called Sun Bets, where UK and Irish bettors are exclusively served with betting opportunities. The news company joined forces with an Australian company to help in the launching of Sun Bets. The intention was and is to for Sun Bets to be present only on the UK and Irish market. Thus the industry received another potential competitor, which is always great for the bettors.
The official year of the launching of Sun Bets is 2016. After one year, it finally started making some waves in the online sports betting industry. All of this is thanks to the free bet bonuses and the innovative new features. On the other side, The Sun is read by 7 million people every day in the Great Britain, a company that owns two other newspapers such as The Sunday Times and The Times, so you can imagine how much is invested into Sun Bets to be able to offer services of the highest quality.
The Sun has previously dabbled into online gaming through Sun Bingo, but this is their first ever venture into the sports betting world. In the following we will point out all the important details about Sun Bets pertaining to bonuses, sports and other.
At the moment Sun Bets offers a new customer offer and a load of price boosts and enhanced odds, which are usually valid for the weekend when there are horse races and football matches. You can find all of them in the Promotions tab, but let’s see the important offers here.
Actually there are three new customer offers at Sun Bets. One is a regular offer, the second is for horse racing betting, while the third can be used on racing in combination with other sports. The regular offer includes £10 bonus if you register now, deposit and place a bet of at least £5. It’s activated using the code G10.
After you have made the qualifying bet at minimum single odds of 1/2, the next day £10 will appear in your account to use freely on the house. Complete the bonus requirements and you can cash out your winnings.
The second offer is given to bettors that want to bet on horses. You will get £20 free if your first bet as a new customer is made on any horse race. It has to be a £10 bet at least, after which you will get the £20 bonus to wager on any horse race you like. Keep the winnings upon completing the conditions. The third offer can be used on both races and other sports. Use code G10, place a first bet of £10 and you will get £5 as a bonus.
The rest of the bonuses help you get better prices and enhanced odds. Some of them are regular, while other time limited (usually the horse racing ones). Some of the regular ones are:
- Best Price on British Teams – bet on British teams in the Champions League and Europa League and get the best price available on the market.
- 15% Bonus to Your Footy Accumulator – you are paid 15% more of your winnings for every successful 5-fold+ accumulator in the football season.
- Basketball Accumulator Boost – 15% on your successful basketball accumulators.
- NFL 15% Accumulator Boost – 15% on your successful NFL accumulators.
- Best Odds Guaranteed – you are guaranteed a pay-out by the best price even after your horse racing bet was settled.
Keep an eye on the promotions department for updated offers.
Every sport you would expect from a bookmaker can be found at Sun Bets. The focus is obviously on football and horse racing, but this bookmaker can offer you a lot more in the other sports departments. The racing department includes cycling, motor sports, and horse racing. There are also team sports like cricket, rugby, basketball, futsal, American football and other, as well as single sports like golf, tennis, MMA boxing, snooker, darts etc. They go much way beyond with sports like handball, surfing or even politics.
The people behind Sun Bets obviously know what the audience wants, which can be seen by the price boost offers tantalising the customers to make their bet. In the Football Coupons section you can build coupons with various odds, which are definitely some of the best on the market. If you are an experienced bettor, you will notice that among the first things.
The key to best odds is to be well aware of the competition. The online betting market is a crowded one, and you have to let some go to receive a lot more in return. Sun Bets have realised this from the very start. They have the most accumulator boost bonuses on the market, and offer ultra-competitive environment for the bettors.
The only disappointing feature about Sun Bets is that it offers only two payment methods: Visa and MasterCard. If you don’t mind using your cards to fund your Sun Bets account, this will be no problem at all. But, if you are someone that doesn’t happen to own such cards or you prefer using an e-wallet, internet banking or prepaid card, this will be a problem. Both Euros and Sterling Pounds are accepted.
Customer support is available 24/7. Whenever you want to clear up something with the operator, use the live chat, email or telephone option. Only telephone support has limited working hours between 7am-11pm. There are telephone numbers for both UK and Irish bettors. You can also follow them on social media like Twitter and Facebook. The FAQ section is extremely useful too.
Sun Bets is operated by Tabcorp UK Limited with offices in London, England. The company is licenced and regulated by the Gambling Commission of the United Kingdom for the provision of services to UK players. Additionally, it’s licenced and regulated by the Office of Revenue Commissioners in the Republic of Ireland too for the provision of services in Ireland.
