A Quick Look at The Sun Play

If you’re expecting a newspaper-themed site you will be disappointed (although there is an exclusive Sun-themed slot game you can play), but you certainly won’t be if you’re looking for top quality slots by the best producers. You also won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a site where you can regularly take advantage of lucrative promotions and rewards.

To claim the full £500 bonus, you need to make three deposits totalling £750, which is an overall deposit rate of 66%, while the minimum deposit to claim each bonus is £10. There is a 4x maximum conversion amount.

Bonus spins on Starburst are worth 0.20p each and are valid for 7 days. Any winnings are subject to a 40x playthrough.

The Welcome Bonus comes with a 40x deposit + bonus wagering requirement, which means that if you claim the full £500 bonus, you need to wager £50,000 (40 x £1,250) before you can cash out any of the bonus or the winnings from it. Most slots contribute to the playthrough at a rate of 1:1, but there are exceptions so please check the T&Cs for the full list. You have 28 days in which to clear the bonus.

We like it when a welcome offer also gives you bonus spins, and although the value with this deal isn’t exceptional, you can nevertheless pick up the full 100 spins with three deposits totalling £30.

How to Deposit & Cash Out

Depositing

Players at The Sun Play UK have several different banking options open to you. These include Boku (Pay by Mobile), Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, PaySafe Card and PayPal, as well as wire transfer and debit/credit cards. The minimum deposit amount is £10 (except for Boku, which is £15), and there are no fees charged, with the exception of Boku, for which you are charged a 15% fee. Funds are credited to your account and available to play with straight away (wire transfers will take longer).

Cashing out

The minimum withdrawal amount using any of the available payment methods is £20, and you will be required to use the same method as for deposits. If this isn’t possible, you will receive funds via cheque or wire transfer. Withdrawal requests are pending for up to 3 working days (during which time a request can be cancelled) and will then take 1 – 3 business days to complete, depending on the withdrawal method.

Most players should be able to find a convenient banking option here, and there is certainly more choice than at many other comparable sites. However, it would be appreciated by players if the processing and withdrawal times were faster.

 The Community

We find it a little surprising that The Sun Play is not better at engaging with its players and creating a playing community. For instance, there have barely been any posts to the Facebook page (@sunplaycasino) over the last couple of years, and this is reflected in the small number of people who have Liked and followed the page. In addition, there are no Twitter or Instagram accounts, and no YouTube channel.

At the same time, there are no real signs of an engaged community of players on the site either, and so this is clearly an area in which they could do more to create a friendly atmosphere for players.

Take the Sun Play with You

In our opinion, the playing experience at The Sun Play mobile site is superior to that which you get when you play on a desktop or laptop. This is largely because the search and sort features in the mobile casino is configured better, enabling you to sort games on the home screen more efficiently. You can also access all the features of your account, and the full range of promotions, with a single tap.

You also have the advantage of being able to play on any sort of device, without having to download and install The Sun Play Casino app. The mobile slots are all browser based and so they are accessible on all types of smartphone and tablet, including Apple iPhone and iPad, and Android devices.

Our Take on the Sun Play

We play at this site regularly because of the range and variety of the slots it offers, not because of any particularly engaging theme or stunning visuals. On the whole, in terms of design, it’s a fairly straightforward and conventional casino site, but this should in no way put anyone off.

The slots game provision is certainly first rate, with our only issue in this regard being that we would like to see Microgaming and NetEnt’s biggest progressive jackpot slots here i.e., Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune, but given the overall quality of the gaming experience, this is a relatively minor complaint on our part.

This is why we have deliberated carefully and decided upon a final The Sun Play review score of 4½ stars out of 5.

Only been with these a couple of weeks and they seemed ok at 1st. Spent 700 and managed a withdrawal of 1800 which i thought as not bad. I’ve since spent that plus more just trying to get the games to kick any good game play out, losing the money is not a problem, but i certainly dont feel ive had my moneys worth of gaming. I haven’t played that much money in 1 yr in some casino’s let alone a few weeks.

Be careful this company is selling their products obroad in countries where they have no licence.. they will promise you bonus but never give it to you .. they just took my money and when I ask about the bonus and said that the games wasn’t working they said it’s my fault as I’m abroad and I used proxy so its all my mistake so they will keep 100 pounds and they will block my account so I can forget for any bonus games … I sign up because of their bonus offer and I end up with nothing so be very careful also they have no telephone number for manager you just have to contact them through the email and they do jot reply very often … careful guys not this casino !

Another new site that give you nothing, i have now decided new sites not worth any deposit what so ever, its clear to say they have to make so much money first before you actually win, no where near yet again on a new site off meeting wagering.
Stay clear another site that will take take take before you get. Also lots off games would not play, spoke to cs and and had tech issues???? good start.
Stick to old sites you know where you stand.
