Sun Bets Review

Despite the rise of digital media, many people still prefer their news and views the old fashioned way, and over 1.6 million copies of The Sun are sold on a daily basis.

The Sun has now decided to jump upon the online sports book bandwagon, and launched the Sun Bets site in 2016 with a little help from Tabcorp UK Limited.



You're always likely to receive a warm welcome when you step into the Sun Bets sports book. All new customers who sign up at Sun Bets and use the promo code G30 will receive a FREE £/€30 bet. Once you've completed your registration all you then need to do is place a minimum bet at the sports book of £/€10 and you will receive £/€30 free with which to wager.

You qualifying bet must be a bet of £/€10 or more placed upon a single event with minimum odds of 1/2 (1.50) on any sports market that's available at the site. Once your qualifying bet has been settled, you will be awarded a £/€30 free bet within 48 hours.

If you do not use your free bet within thirty days of it being given to you, then it will be removed from your account. As is typical with these deals, only any winnings from the use of your free bet will be paid into your account – not the free bet stake itself.

If you prefer to bet solely on horse racing, then instead of the general sports bonus you can get a £/€20 free bet if you bet £/€10 on horse race. You will then receive a £/€10 free bet (same terms and conditions as above) and a £/€10 bonus to use in the attached Sun Bets casino.

There's even more choice – if you don't want to risk £/€10 in order to earn yourself a £/€30 free bet, you can instead risk £/€5 in order to be awarded with a £/€10 free bet. Identical terms and conditions as with the £/€30 bet, of course.

The Sun Bets site also has plenty of on-going offers that eager punters are able to take advantage of. For example, if your football accumulator comes in and you have a minimum of five selections then Sun Bets will add an extra fifteen percent to your account. Other sports leagues – such as basketball's NBA in the USA and the NFL covering American football – also get the same acca-boost treatment.

Site design

This site ticks all the necessary boxes – it's easy to find your way around, and the site looks functional and attractive. That's all you really want from a decent sports betting site, isn't it?

The mobile version of this site is pretty slick too – ideal if you want to place a bet when you've no access to a PC or laptop.

Cashier options

You do not really have a great deal of options when it comes to payments at the Sun Bets sports book. The site will only accept Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards. If you have an eWallet account with a provider such as PayPal, Neteller or Skrill, then you will not be able to use it here.

The minimum accepted deposit is £5, and there is no maximum. The help gurus at Sun Bets claims that the minimum and maximum withdrawals are the same (£5 and unlimited) – we think that this is a little odd, but who are we to argue?

A withdrawal request should take around twenty-four hours to process, and the money should be in your credit card or debit card account within three to five working says.


The sun is certainly shining on the Sun Bets sports book, and with a little luck it could be shining on you, too. There are a few clouds – such as the lack of any payment options beyond credit and debit cards – but other than that the betting skies here have a very definite sky blue hue.

We applaud any site that gives new customers a choice in what they can plump for in a welcome offer, so we're pleased that Sun Bets has three to choose from! For a positive sports betting experience, come out of the darkness and come into The Sun!
