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.
For new players at The Sun Play Casino UK, the Welcome Offer gives you three deposit matches worth up to £500, plus up to 100 spins on the smash hit NetEnt slot Starburst:
UK Gambling Commission + Gibraltar GC
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.

Once you start playing here, you won’t be able to stop picking up bonuses and rewards. These include the Booster Bonus 10 and the Weekend Bonanza promotion. To top it off, you can take part in the Call of the Giants slots tournament, with a huge prize pool on offer. There wasn’t a VIP program in place at the time of writing.
The collection of The Sun Play slots is huge, featuring around 550 games in all categories by a range of leading producers, both large and small, including Microgaming, NetEnt, Yggdrasil, IGT, Nektan and many more. All of the best-known and most popular slot titles are here, including video and themed slots like Jack and the Beanstalk, Wild Toro, Spiñata Grande, Planet of the Apes and Guns N’ Roses.
There is also a good selection of progressive jackpot slots, including Winstar and Divine Fortune, as well as games from the IGT Mega Jackpots network like Cleopatra and Golden Goddess.
As well as slots, there is also a small collection of table poker and video poker games.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re a regular player here, or even if you’ve just checked it out once or twice, let us know your opinion of the site by leaving a comment, or even writing your own The Sun Play review.
