The Ultimate Sun Bets Review 2018
SunBets.co.uk is now closed and is not accepting any new players.
Sun Bets is a new sportsbook in the business. As we already mentioned, the British newspaper Sun is behind them and they already had a huge impact on the betting market in the UK. Our Sun Bets review will state their pros and cons and give you insights on how to get the biggest value from them.

|Live betting & streaming||3/5|
Welcome offer: £30 Free Bet
Sun Bets offers a free £/€10 bet to their new customers. To access the free bet, a player must register using the correct Sun Bets promo code and place a minimal £/€5 bet at a minimum single odds of 1/2(1.5) on any sports market. After that, a free £/€10 bet will appear in your account within 48 hours. The players can use the free bet on football betting, horse racing or even Sun Boosts, which gives enhanced odds on a selection of sports events. The offer will expire after 30 days if unused.
Sun Bets welcome offer is similar to that of William Hill among others, but we can't say that Sun Bets is among the leaders in the industry when it comes to welcome bonus for new customers. On the other hand, it is very easy to qualify for the Sun Bets welcome bonus. Sun Bets offers roulette and Vegas bonuses as well.
Betting markets: 5/5
Sun Bets is built around betting markets that are interesting to the UK audience. The newspaper Sun is well known for their extensive European (and especially Premier League) football coverage, and their betting offer is highlighted by a wide variety of football betting options.
Sun Bets are already one of the best options for the UK bettors, when it comes to betting on football. That doesn't mean other Sun Bets betting markets are bad. On the contrary, they offer almost any sport you can imagine, from those popular in the UK such as horse racing, tennis and cricket, to darts, snooker, MMA and even boxing, which is all included in their offer. Sun Bets offers “SunBoosts” to all customers every weekend, which can give you better deal on a variety of sports and events, even the most popular ones.

Sun Bets guarantees the best odds on daily UK and Irish horse racing markets. If the starting price is higher than the odds you bet at, Sun Bets will pay out at the higher odds. Sun Bets odds for football and horse racing markets are among the best in the business.
Only Marathon Bet, which is well known as the bookie with the lowest betting margin across all markets, has better odds than them. Sun Bets are within the group of bookmakers such as Matchbook, Betfair and Betway.
Also, Sun Bets offers a 15% accumulator on any 5 + NFL selection. The above mentioned SunBoosts can make Sun Bets the best UK bookie when it comes to odds. However, when it comes to other markets, such as tennis or basketball, the odds and the number of matches offered are not that great.
Mobile app: 4/5
Sun Bets mobile app is available via a desktop website page. On the bottom of the page, just above the index, there are links to their Android and iOS products. The requirements for those apps are rather low, so any smartphone should be able to install it.
Sun Bets certainly could promote their apps better, especially since they are both effective and even better designed than the desktop website.
Live betting & streaming: 3/5
Sun Bets offers live betting and streaming to their customers, but they are not among the best sportsbooks in this field. They stream the top horse races in the UK and offer live betting on football and some other markets, but the options are limited. You must have money deposited into your account to access live streaming options.
|Payment method||Minimum deposit||Transaction fee||Processing time|
|Credit/debit Master Card||£/€5||None||Immediate|
|Credit/debit VISA Card||£/€5||None||Immediate|
Sun Bets deposits don't have any fee attached, minimum deposit is only £/€5, and the processing time for both deposits and withdrawals are minimal. However, Sun Bets currently accepts only VISA and Master credit and debit cards.
There are no other options available at the moment, which makes Sun Bets less attractive. At least, players can freely switch between the options available and use different methods for deposit and withdrawal.

Sun Bets customer support is top notch and among the best in the industry. Their live chat is available 24/7 and the staff is very pleasant and helpful. There are little to no complaints on their work. Also, response time on live chat is fantastic, usually less than ten minutes. Sun Bets has an extensive FAQ section as well, so make sure you search for an answer there in the first place and if there is no answer to your inquiry, contact customer support via live chat, telephone or email.
Overall rating: 4/5
Sun Bets review covered one of the newest sportsbooks on the market from A to Z. Sun Bets is an excellent betting partner, especially for the players who like to bet on football and horse races. New customers can easily qualify for the free £/€10 bet by placing a minimum £/€5 bet on the odds equal to or better than 1/2 (1.5) on any market.
We are giving them four out of five rating because they lack some payment methods, and their welcome offer is underwhelming compared to some of their competitors. However, Sun Bets is a trustworthy sportsbook with great odds and every casual bettor should have an account there.
