Sunbets is still a relatively new betting site created in late 2016. With The Sun being the best selling newspaper in the Uk, it is a familiar logo on their site. Controversial headlines are a regular appearance in The Sun newspaper. However, the sports section is where they truly excel, particularly the football section. I believe this will be a key factor to entice potential customers to a new and sleek website.
The Sunbets welcome offer is a rather standard one for new customers. Bet £5 to get a free £10 bet.
- Register as a new customer and input the promo code G10
- Place a minimum £5 bet on their sportsbook section
- Within 48 hours you will receive a free £10 bet
Promotions and Rewards
With Sunbets still being relatively new. Their promotions and rewards still need some improvement when compared to some of the bigger bookies. There is no sign of any reward schemes at present, but below is a list of their current football offers and promotions.
- Bet £5 to get a free £10 bet (Welcome Bonus)
- In play offer, bet £10 pre-game to get a free £5 in play bet (Athletico Madrid vs Arsenal)
Appearance and Navigation
Sunbets appearance is clear and simple. From the iconic red logos to the simple and easy to read black on white writing. Compared to other bookmakers it feels a lot less cluttered, again a very simplistic but functional approach to navigating the website. Effortlessly gliding through the different sports with a simple header tab. Admittedly there is a lot of free space on the left of the website, which a list of sports could easily fit to navigate faster. However, it is refreshing to have a tidier looking website for once. Instead of the overwhelming load of information, you are usually greeted with.
When delving deeper into the website it sticks with the straightforward approach throughout. Clicking on the Football tab on the front screen takes you to a featured section followed by three other options to the left. It was no problem finding games in any of the leagues they offer. Very simply clicking on the “Competitions” tab took you to an overview of the world football they offered. It is manageable to find the competitions you are looking for, but also time-consuming compared to the bigger sites. It would be better to have a section for the more “popular” leagues such as Premier League, Seria A, La Liga etc. Instead, you had a United Kindom section followed by Europe, which contained all of their European leagues. It would be a lot easier to have the leagues more readily available for quicker bet selection. Also when selecting a league and adding to your bet slip, there is no easy way to go back to the competitions section unless clicking back on the website page. Instead, the only option is to click “football”. Sending you back to the start where you would need repeat the process again.
Being fairly new to the sports betting game it is easy to understand why their markets are not as extensive as other big sites. As an example, they have 172 markets for today’s Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal game. Other competitors such as William Hill ( 260 markets) but compared to another new website (SportNation 139) it still has a respectable number. There is a great number of leagues available, again maybe not as many as the bigger names but certainly enough for the average customer. Overall I am impressed with the betting markets, however, access to markets is no picnic. They can benefit by improving the navigation of this site and adding markets allowing for more customization of your bet.
Live Betting and Streaming
At the time of reviewing there is currently nothing in their in play section. Apart from the ATP Seoul Challenger. With no sign of an infographic(such as a tennis court) as many other competitors provide for some kind of visual stimulation. However, I cannot judge the in play section on a smaller tennis market. I did go to the Atletico vs Arsenal market and was pleasantly surprised when I found the match centre section. I was impressed with the detailed stats pregame, even down to the distance between the two teams. Now I know its not like the distance between the teams is a huge factor, but its a nice addition. In fact, you have full team details and some little stats to do with the game.
Sunbets does not yet have live streaming, whereas many other sites have a live streaming service available if you have money in your account. This is a shame, but again they are a relatively new bookmaker. Yet their infographic is innovative and informative. You can get live commentary, the lineups, statistics, the team’s rankings and the forms of both teams. That is including their latest games, head to head performances and their next fixtures.
Sunbets customer service is a bit hard to find. It is only located at the bottom of the website labelled “Help Centre” and in the drop-down menu box at the bottom. However many competitors share the same problem. On the other hand, their support once you find it is top of the line.
- Always available 24/7 live chat
- A telephone number open 7am-11pm 7 days a week
- An email address not sure on the response time
- Sunbets twitter help account
- A clear list of FAQ’s
In conclusion, Sunbets will not disappoint. Highlighted by their easy to navigate website, detailed infographic, statistics, live scores and commentary all combining to be effortless in use. While a live stream would be a welcomed addition and potentially more promotions and offers. It is easy to see the benefits of joining Sunbets. Their wide range of different markets and leagues makes it possible to find whatever tickles your fancy.
