The Sun is one of the most (in)famous tabloids on the planet, and a British institution. As such, the Sun brand is one that is familiar to the paper’s millions of readers and millions more besides. The company has utilised that cache in the digital realm before, launching the successful Sun Bingo site years ago, and now they are expanding to the casino market with the impressive and newly-launched Sun Bets Casino.
In 2015 Sun Bingo and industry titan Playtech signed a five-year contract for the software developer to power the bingo site, and that partnership has now been extended to the Sun Bets Casino, which is a testament to Playtech’s versatility and performance. By partnering with Playtech, Sun Bets is assured to feature top-of-the-line platforms for their casino and live casino games, as well as having access to Playtech’s impressive catalogue of games.
When it comes to players that wish to play via their desktop or laptop computer, Sun Bets Casino can be accessed and played instantly within an internet-connected browser, without having to download additional software. HTML5 technology makes the casino quick and responsive, and also helps in the transition to mobile devices. Those wishing to game on the go with Sun Bets can plat instantly via their device’s browser much like they would on a computer, but they are also afforded additional options in the form of dedicated applications for Android and iOS devices. These apps take advantage of the specifics of their respective operating systems to provide and even better gaming experience.
As mentioned above, Sun Bets Casino has access to the massive portfolio of games produced by Playtech, which are among the most popular and beloved on the web. Of course, slots are often a signature gaming category and Sun Bets proudly hosts some of Playtech’s choicest offerings. Pioneering pop culture game Gladiator calls the casino home, as do more recent games based on touchstones such as Ace Ventura and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Original concepts such as the popular Mr. Cashback and Age of the Gods are also given prominent positions at Sun Bets Casino.
Beyond slots, users can find an impressive selection of table games, including multiple versions of casino classics blackjack and roulette, including a Marvel-branded version of the French wheel game. Players looking to truly recreate the real-world casino experience at home will be pleased to find that live dealer games of roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and casino hold’em can all be played at the casino.
Sun Bets Casino is one the newest casinos on the web, but thanks to the considerable resources and abilities of the companies involved in its creation that traditional weakness has been made into a strength. While a lesser casino might take some time to discover the best software and design decisions for maximum efficiency and usability, Sun Bets Casino emerged fully formed with a look and feel that is intuitive, fast, and memorable.
An impossible-to-miss banner at the top of menu pages informs users of promotional offers and new games, all done in a way that is incredibly informative without overloading the senses. Below that users will find major game categories, such as Slots, Table, etc. which make it easier to navigate the impressive roster of games available. The entire site is incredibly responsive, with loading times that are among the fastest in the industry.
Almost every game featured on the site can be test-played for fun before committing real bankroll. This allows players to investigate the look, feel, and rules of games without having to risk money, a truly welcome touch. A drop-down menu near the top of the page features links to pages dedicated to things like promotions, the informative Sun Bets blog, player account information, and the help centre.

The promotions page mentioned above hosts bonus offers for both the Sun Bets Casino and the company’s sportsbook, with a clickable link filtering one from the other.
