The Sun Play Review

In between the success of their bingo platform and the demise of their betting site, The Sun also opened up another gambling entity. The Sun Play launched on the Nektan platform in 2017. It's licensed by The UKGC and the Gibraltar Gambling Commission and gives players access to a wide selection of slots. However The Sun Play doesn't have casino or live casino options.

The Sun Play website is splashed with the red that you'd expect from a brand headed up by newspaper brand. However remove the logo and actually what you're faced with is a standard Nektan casino site. The latest slots dominate the homepage whilst promotions and information is flashed across the screen via a slideshow.

Welcome Offer

New players to The Sun Play are offered a 100% first deposit bonus up to 100. In addition they will also collect 10 spins on Starburst. Further rewards are available for second and third deposits. Note that wagering terms apply and these are x40 (deposit + bonus) for the deposit bonus and x40 on wins from the spins. That is quite a hefty tie-in but you can opt-out of these offers.

Login to The Sun Play to discover games from many providers including Microgaming, Red Tiger, Pragmatic, NetEnt, IGT, Yggdrasil and Scientific. Slots can be discovered by provider, new games, jackpots and frequency of wins. There's also an exclusive Sun Play Games section but this seems to actually only host one exclusive game - Reel All About It.


We suspect that players will prefer to try the more familiar slots such as Cleopatra, Starburst, Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance, Wolf Gold, Fishin Frenzy, Bonanza Megaways and Rainbow Riches. If you're looking for table games prepare to be disappointed. The Sun Play doesn't offer blackjack, roulette, video poker or live casino options.

The Sun Play also doesn't offer anything exclusive with respect to promotions. There are offers but these are the typical Nektan network bonuses such as Happy Hump Day (Wednesday Bonus) and Cashback Thursday. At time of writing there was a Licence To Thrill 4K Leaderboard tournament so there are occasional prize opportunities.

Our Verdict

If you prefer to play on the move then The Sun Play is accessible on mobile and tablet. There's no app required. Depositing and withdrawal terms are fair plus there's a number of banking options. These include Paypal, Neteller, Skrill and Boku (pay by mobile). Terms will apply for each individual option with respect to deposit and withdrawal limits.

Nektak Casinos are - in our view - pretty marmite. Add The Sun brand into the mix and that adds an extra layer of marmite. Branding aside the site does offer a good selection of slots. But without casino games it's never going to be as good as sister brands. Still it does have an exclusive slot game.
