About the Bookie
It's rare that a new bookie makes such a splash as Sun Bets has, and since its launch in August 2016 punters have been loving Sun Bets since. It's impossible to miss The Sun's famous red colours - as it went into a joint venture with the biggest bookie down under, Tabcorp, to set up Sun Bets.
Sun Bets practice traditional bookmaking principles and have a slick and smooth website. They place a firm focus on customer service with a UK based customer services team. You'll find all the betting markets that you want and cash out is offered too.
Of course, there are plenty of promotions. Best Odds Guaranteed is available on UK & Irish horse racing, so if you take a price about a horse but the odds drift causing a greater starting price, you’ll be paid at the longer odds if your bet is a winner
There's a casino available too, so if slots, blackjack or roulette takes your fancy, Sun Casino and Sun Vegas have you covered..
Live StreamingYou can bet in-play on all the sporting events that you'd expect, but what's better than other bookies is that Sun Bets has talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 integrated into its site. There's no need to go into a far away part of the site - it's right next to the login button and you can easily turn it on and off. They have exclusive commentary of many major football tournaments such as the Premier League, Champions League and the World Cup.
There's live streaming of all UK & Irish horse racing too. You just need to place at least a £1 bet on the race that you'd like to watch.
For many other sports, where matches aren't televised there is a match centre so you can see the latest scores and follow how your bet is getting on, or bet in-play.
Unique About the BookieUnlike many new entrants, Sun Bets' software is their own. It's developed by Tabcorp and used for their Tab site in Australia. It's also mobile responsive, but they have apps too. Sun Bets also use Tabcorp's trading team, which means they have their own prices. This makes it more likely you'll get a better price about a horse that you fancy, because Sun Bets' traders will have their own opinions that might differ from other bookies.
Due to their link with the newspaper, Sun Bets offers a wide range of extra markets, particularly football specials and those in the "In The Sun" section of the website. This is where they will price up all sorts of markets based on whatever is happening in that day'.s newspaper, which could be based around current affairs, entertainment, sports or politics.
There are also Sun Boosts each day, so you can get enhanced odds on certain markets which change each day and are worth checking out.
Customer ServiceContacting Sun Bets’ customer support team is simple, and there are many ways to do it. Most importantly, they’re available 24/7 on live chat and email. If you need them, head over to the help section of the Sun Bets website and then you’ll be able to get in touch.
