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 bingo, casino or live casino options possibly because these are offered at Sun Bingo and the recently launched Sun Vegas. So what is on offer at The Sun Play?
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. The latest slots dominate the homepage whilst promotions and information is flashed across the screen via a slideshow. Nektan sites are specifically designed for mobile play so you can enjoy games on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required to play here.
The Sun Play Welcome Offer
New players to The Sun Play are offered a 100% first deposit bonus up to £100. In addition they will also collect 50 spins on Wolf Gold. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to collect the bonus. 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. We like that you can find slots by provider, new games, jackpots and daily drops jackpots. Surprisingly there isn't a section for Megaways slots! There did used to be an exclusive Sun Play Games section but actually only hosted one exclusive game - Reel All About It. The game is still active on the site but the section has been removed.
The Sun Play Promotions
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. Nektan have also added bingo to their roster but this is also not available here.
The Sun Play also doesn't offer anything exclusive with respect to promotions. There are offers but these are the typical Nektan Slots network bonuses and are mainly reload offers. At time of writing there was a Spins Drop promotion for players on Narcos and a Daily Drops & Win offer. The latter runs for six months during 2020 and gives you the chance to win a share of the gigantic £1,500,000 in cash prizes.
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.
Nektan 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 Nektan does offer a good selection of slots from many top providers. But without table games, live casino and even bingo it's never going to be as good as other brands on the Nektan platform or it's siblings at Sun Bingo and Sun Vegas. Other the chance to acquire another welcome offer the only highlight here is the exclusive slot game.
