For people residing in the UK, The Sun is synonymous with tabloid journalism. But what many aren’t aware of is that they have launched their own sports betting site: SunBets.
This features all of the features you’d expect from your typical bookmaker, but with a few cheeky twists that we might have predicted from a brand that is often near the knuckle.
All of the key sports feature on the site, and with stacks of bonuses, offers and price boosts also up for grabs it’s worth considering SunBets as your next bookie of choice.
Pros and cons
For the time being, SunBets is focusing on the UK market, and that means that all of the sports offered are those that domestic punters enjoy betting on.
With growing popularity for US-centric sports, it’s no surprise to see those well represented here – although not, bizarrely, American Football. In spite of that, all of the old favourites that we take as a given.
SunBets offer lots of options for punters who prefer to bet on the move on their mobiles. You can choose to use your browser – simply head to the SunBets website – and you will be greeted by a scaled-down version of their desktop hub.
Or you can download the dedicated apps for Android and Apple devices. This is clearly the direction the brand wants to head in as both applications look superb and are super-smooth to navigate around, with easy bet placement a key feature.
You can redeem bonuses and welcome offers, deposit and withdraw funds and bet on all their markets (pre-match and in-play), and there’s even the chance to have a flutter on their casino too within the same app and using the same bankroll.

Sunbets review summary
You get the impression that SunBets are just starting out in sports betting, and what they have delivered so far – as strong as it is – will prove to be just the tip of the iceberg.
From a betting perspective, everything you could possibly need is here. There are two obvious oversights that have to be pointed out – no American Football betting, no live streaming – but otherwise all of the basic nuts and bolts are present and correct.
The website is a smooth operator, and the apps probably outperform the desktop presence, and customer support – which is UK-based of course – is available around the clock.
There are plenty of promos to sink your teeth into, and while the welcome bonus may be a bit stingy at least the wagering requirements are kept to a minimum.
