Sports betting site overview


Sun Bets is the newest high-profile bookie, which launched in August 2016 and has been impressing punters since. It is a joint venture between The Sun newspaper, and Tabcorp, the biggest betting company in Australia.

They take a traditional approach to bookmaking but combine this with a modern and intuitive website, combined with excellent customer care.

Sports betting site software and graphics

Software / Graphics

Sun Bets’ platform is a proprietary one, which is developed by Tabcorp and used for the Tab site down under. It’s mobile responsive so you’ll get a slick and clean experience regardless of the device that you’re accessing it from. They also have apps, if that’s what you’d prefer.

In terms of colours and design, it’s impossible to miss the traditional The Sun red colours – and of course the logo matches the newspaper.

If you’re a horse racing fan, you’re in the right place, because Sun Bets offer live streaming of all UK & Irish horse racing, as long as you bet a minimum of £1 on the race that you’d like to watch. If you are between races, or prefer other sports, you can listen to talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 on the Sun Bets site.

If you’d like to play some casino games too, then they also offer Sun Casino and Sun Live Casino, which are both powered by Playtech, and Sun Vegas, which is from Microgaming and more.

Sports betting site bonuses and promotions

Bonus and Promotions

The sign up offer that Sun Bets are giving to new customers is a simple one: make your first bet of at least £/€10 (at odds of at least 1/2 (1.50)) and get a £/€30 free bet. They’ll put it in your account within 48 hours and then any profit from the free bet above the stake is yours to keep.

You’ll need to make sure you sign up with promo code G10 when you’re creating your account in order to be eligible. Unlike some bookies, there are no complicated terms and conditions, but do check them out.

There are plenty of ongoing offers once you’ve opened your account too. Sun Bets offer Best Odds Guaranteed on UK & Irish horse racing, so if you take a price about a horse but the SP is bigger, you’ll be paid at the higher odds.

They also offer daily Sun Boosts, which are on their own markets page on the website. These are enhanced odds for all customers, so if you fancy some ongoing value these are updated each day.

Sports betting site markets, odds, cashouts, special features

Markets, Odds, Cashouts, Special Features

Sun Bets offers all the markets that you’d expect of a leading betting website. Whatever you want to bet on, you should be able to find it. There are a huge range of football markets, and a specific football specials section if you want to bet on who will be the next manager of a football club or similar. Cash out is available on your football bets.

One place where Sun Bets’ stand out in terms of markets is their “In The Sun” section. Their traders will often price up bespoke markets based on the latest sporting, political and entertainment stories that are in The Sun newspaper.

Sun Bets have their own pricing for all UK & Irish horse racing so it’s worth checking them out to see if they’re a good price about your fancy – and of course they offer Best Odds Guaranteed.
