SunBets is one of the newest betting sites in to hit the United Kingdom and it should be an already recognisable brand given the fact they are part of The Sun Newspaper brand. The next media company to make the move into the online betting world after Sky had so much success. They currently offer both an online casino section and a sports betting section for their custmers to bet at, however we expect they will be adding in poker and bingo sometime soon.
The user interface at SunBets is clean and crisp with all the popular sports present across the top bar, customers can easily navigate between football, horse racing and tennis markets. There are also tabs for any upcoming popular events. Down the centre of the homepage you will find a selection of pre match bets from the football, tennis and horse racing markets. The right hand side of the page will show your betslip which will populate and calculate your potential winnings as you add selections to it, they also display their welcome bonus for sports and casino as well as a selection of their current promotions. In order to access their complete menu you will have to look to the left hand side of the screen, once you click this button it will display a drop down menu containing the rest of the site. Overall despite it being so new they’ve managed to create a website that is both easy to use, quick to load and pleasing on the eyes with no annoying banner ads cluttering the screen.
For all new customers that are signing up to SunBets they will be able to claim a £10 free bet, this is a bet £5 get £10 free welcome bonus which means you need to sign up deposit and wager a minimum of £5 on a sports market where the odds are a minimum 1.5.
Despite being new to the online betting world they’ve already got a whole host of promotions for their customers to claim. After you have used your £10 free bet you will be able to take advantage of 10% bonus on any winners that you back at the St Leger festival being held at Doncaster, money back bonuses on strictly come dancing, money back on X factor, price boosts on various sports markets and a great selection of football specials. You’ll need to check on a daily basis to see what they’re offering as they change all the time.
They’ve already got a pretty in-depth in-play console, the main focus is obviously football but what stands out is the ability to bet on a huge selection of different markets from across the globe from the English Premier League to the Russian 2nd Division. The other sports that you’ll be able to bet on in-play are Tennis which is just as in-depth as football in regards to the events they cover, golf, baseball, rugby league, rugby union, ice hockey, e-sports, handball and even surfing. As you can see there is a lot to go at on their live betting section with pretty much something for everyone.
Even though its new on the scene they already have developed a dedicated mobile application for their customers to use, so if you’ve got an iOS powered device you will be able to download it directly from the app store, customers with a android device will be able to download it straight from the SunBets homepage. If you’d rather not download the app to your mobile phone then you can still access the mobile optimised version of the website on your device. It runs essentially the same as the app would just a little slower due to it having to transfer more date. The app itself includes all of the standout features that the desktop site and retains its easy to use functionality that we found on the desktop version of the site.
There is a dedicated help section which can be accessed off the main menu part of the site, once clicked it will load up their FAQ section which will contain answers to most questions a bettor will have when betting on their site. However if you need further help then SunBets offer round the clock support via both their Email and Live Chat support. There is also a telephone service this however is only available between the hours of 7 am and 11pm every day. The support team were incredibly helpful when we has questions to ask, answering them in a quick and courteous manner. We definitely advise using the live chat service as this seemed to provide the quickest results.
Currently customers are only able to deposit/withdraw by using a credit or debit card, while this is quite limiting with time they will begin adding more options for you to choose from. In regards to withdrawal speeds it takes between 3 – 5 working days to process withdrawals and the minimum deposit you can make is £5.
Despite being the newest betting site that we’ve ever reviewed they seem to of hit the ground running with an easy to use website which includes all the necessary features, a wide selection of in-play betting markets, dedicated mobile application and round the clock support. The only place that they fell down on was the smaller than normal free bet welcome bonus, but we feel they made up for this with an extensive range of customer promotions.
