SunBets Full Review
If you’re in the market to sign up to new betting sites then SunBets could be the one for you, given that they have only just been released midway through 2016. Bettors will instantly recognise the brand especially since the holding company is one of the largest newspaper corporations in the UK, The Sun. Offering their customers the chance at being able to bet on sports or play at their online casino with more products (poker & bingo) to be added soon.
Its clear that SunBets has studied the market and actually put some real thought in how they wanted to to convey themselves to potential customers, while the interface isnt exactly what we call ground breaking it is clear with very little focus on advertisement and its incredibly easy to use with everything laid out in an orderly manner. Across the top of the site is a widget displaying the current sports that you can bet on in-play, each sport has a number next to it this represents how many games are currently live. There is a menu button in the top left corner which contains all the main pages of the site and the complete selection of sports markets they currently take odds on.
The centre of the page contains a selection of the sports markets and in-play markets to bet on and the right hand side displays your betting slip as well as any of their on going promotions.
Most people are going to be new customers for SunBets given how little time they’ve been in operation which means that you’ll be able to claim their £10 welcome bonus. We realise here at Which Betting Sites that this isn’t exactly the biggest bonus thats on offer but its still a nice way to test out what SunBets offer without having to commit much of your own money to it so if you don’t like the site well you’ve only spent a fiver so its not to bad.
In order to claim this welcome offer you will be required to deposit £5 and wager it on an event where the odds are a minimum of 1.5. After your bet has been settled you’ll then have your account credited with an extra £10.
SunBets have jumped straight in at the deep end with their promotions, we typically find a lot of newer bookies don’t have a great range of promotions for their existing customers, well we can tell you that this is not the case with SunBets.
Currently for sports bettors there are 3 different promotions that you will be able to claim:
EU Wanna Bet: Bet £10 or more on any team to win the Champions League or the Europa League and you will get a £3 free bet when ever that team scores more 3 + goals in a single game.
Need a special one: SunBets have a range of price boosts across a variety of matches in their football markets which can all be found on one easy to use page.
Football Specials: Daily price boosts on a host of football matches from across the globe. Get enhanced odds on first goal scorers, win markets and more.
Another area where we were pleasantly surprised by is the in-play markets that are already on offer at such an early stage in the bookies development. They’ve already got an incredibly varied selection of football markets to bet on from all of the planet. Whether betting n the in-play markets in the Russian 2nd division is your thing or if you prefer betting on the Premier League the choice is certainly there.
They even go into a similar depth with the other sports on offer as you are able to place bets on Golf, Rugby League & Union, Baseball, Handball, Ice Hockey, E-Sports and Surfing.
It seems that SunBets haven’t entered the market half heartedly they’ve already developed a dedicated mobile betting application for their customers to download. This can be done in two possible ways, you can either head over to the app store (iOS) and download it straight form there or for punters using an Android device you can head straight to their homepage and download it directly from the site itself.
The app is incredibly lightweight and quick to respond which is vital when it comes to placing in-play bets quickly before the odds change. You’ll get all the great features carried over from the standard website as well as all of their fantastic promotions.
This is probably one of the only downsides that we found while reviewing SunBets, they don’t currently offer their customers round the clock support. Instead you will only be able to speak to a member of staff between the hours of 7am and 11pm, while they’re only unavailable for 8 hours a day in an age when most bookies are open 24/7 we’d expect similar. However when getting in touch you can email, use the phone and the live chat function on site. The fastest way we found was to speak to a member of staff over live chat.
Unfortunately another area that falls flat is the payment methods that they currently accept with customers only being able to use Credit & Debit cards. When it comes to withdrawing your money you can expect to wait between 3 – 5 business days.
Even though SunBets is still an incredibly new online betting website that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth checking out. As you can see from our review they have already covered the majority of areas with a wide selection of markets, an incredibly varied selection of in-play sports and bets to be placed, a wide range of promotions with the only place they fall short on being customer support and payment methods. However the sites only 6 months old so we fully expect them to improve on these areas and become one of the best online betting sites in the UK.
