When you think of TheSun, you think of puntastic headlines and tabloid gossip. Yet SunBets and SunCasino manage to retain the brand awareness of TheSun newspaper, while creating something more simple, favouring function and ease of use over flashy style.
The brand new casino site has just been launched, and rather than develop a mobile site separately, the betting site and Tabcorp – its partner in the new venture – have chosen to create one portal that caters to both desktop and mobile.
The desktop SunBets and SunCasino as well as the mobile site are one and the same, thanks to simple design choices that make the site easy to use. The mobile version of TheSun gambling sites can be played directly in the browser, thanks to its intelligent, responsive design. Alternatively, players can download an app, for both iOS and Android, to save on data usage if WiFi is not available.
Rather than try and cram as many games as it can onto its gaming site, SunBets and SunCasino have entered into an exclusive agreement with industry experts Playtech. While it means there are fewer games than on other casinos, there is more than enough variety to keep even the most ardent gambler entertained, with all titles carrying the Playtech seal of approval.
TheSun Mobile Casino has been designed with mobile devices firmly in mind. The unobtrusive red banner at the top allows players access to any menus, including help and support, blogs and account information, as well as a full list of games and promotions. A revolving advertisement board draws attention to the promotions on offer, as well as any new or popular games.
Below this, players can either hunt for specific games using the search bar, or flick through the menu options, swiping left or right to find the category they want. It is then a simple case of scrolling down the screen until you have found the game you’re looking to play.
The partnership between SunCasino and Playtech means that there are well over 100 titles to choose from, ranging from cinematic marvels like Gladiator, Top Gun, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, to traditional table games like Baccarat, Blackjack, and Roulette, with a few popular variations of each one.
It also means that SunCasino is home to some of Playtech’s most popular original games including White King, Samba Brazil, and Battle of the Gods. Not only that, but most of these titles come with a ‘Try Free’ option, so players can test whether a game fits their sensibilities before placing any wagers.
As a fresh-faced casino, SunCasino is hoping to entice new players with attractive bonuses, and it does not disappoint. The main offering is a Welcome Bundle promotional pack, with 100% First Deposit Bonus of up to £100. It also offers 25 free spins on any slot, plus an additional £5 to spend on the live casino games.
This is not the only promotion in store for players. The SunCasino also features a Reel It In promotion, where gamers can win up to 140 free spins per day. All they need to do is play on the online casino. In terms of loyalty schemes, SunCasino is shaking up the norm, by creating an invite-only VIP Club, rather than a tiered rate that is based on how much you play.

The SunCasino staff are on hand day and night should you have any issues with the casino games or with your account. As well as featuring a live chat messenger that is always manned by the staff, there is the option to send any grievances or issues by email to the team. If players desperately need to speak to someone, there is a Freephone telephone number that is on from 7am until 11pm.
Since SunCasino is primarily a British online gambling site, it has stripped away deposit and withdrawal options to two: Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards, with no current support for eWallet payment methods. A minimum deposit of £10 applies to the cards, while withdrawals should be processed within 24 hours, but can take three to five business days.
Should you be lucky enough to be invited to be part of the VIP Club, players can also take advantage of a telephone betting service, although this carries a minimum wager of £100. Sun Bets has safety and security at its heart, with all payment details being encrypted when transmitted.
The SunCasino and SunBets mobile sites are a seamless experience from the main desktop site, with a great library of games, matched by ease of use and mobile functionality. The dedicated mobile apps make it even more attractive to players who are constantly on the move!
