Pros and cons
Sun Bets offer all new customers a free £10 bet, which you can use on football betting, horse racing and even the Sun Boosts which are enhanced odds on a variety of sports and racing. To get access to this free bet, all you need to do is place a minimum £5 sportsbook bet at minimum single odds of 1/2 (1.5), and your free £10 will appear in your account within 48 hours.
This may not be the most generous welcome bonus, but there doesn’t seem to be any wagering requirements for the free bet you’ll receive, so if you land a winner you’ll be able to gain access to your funds without jumping through any hoops.
As a UK exclusive sportsbook it’s no surprise to see Sun Bets catering to domestic punters with excellent coverage of UK favourites such as football and tennis. Sun Bets offer a good mix of outright markets and standard markets – there are as many as 50 markets available for each upcoming English Football League Cup fixture.
With growing popularity for US-centric sports, it’s no surprise to see those well represented here – there’s more than enough on offer here to build a decent acca.
- American Football
- F1 and Motorsports

You can expect great odds at Sun Bets – competitive with many of the bigger brands in the industry. Pundits can take advantage of daily specials too, with Sun Bets offering an impressive set of enhanced prices on specific match result, goalscorer and over/under combos. Overall, we were definitely impressed by the value that can be found here.
Live Betting & Streaming
You won’t have to look hard to find Sun Bets dedicated in-play section – there’s a link to it at the top of every page! It’ll take you through to the events currently underway, handily divided by sport, so you won’t have to scroll through an endless list to find the event you’re looking for. Most major sports are covered here, including football, tennis, cricket, and snooker.
Live streams are available for horseracing, and you will be able to keep track of most other sporting events using the match centre, which provides you with commentary, lineups, stats and more.
If you’re looking for promotions you’re spoiled for choice at Sun Bets. Sun Bets promise to be top price on first goal scorer and match result markets for the Premier League and British teams in European competition, respectively. This is a fantastic offer, allowing you to get the best odds on your favourite team and players!
The fun doesn’t stop there, Sun Bets also is giving you the chance to win off a losing bet. Yes, you read that correctly – if your team is winning at half-time, but goes on to lose the match, you’ll be paid out as a winner (English Premier League only).
All this, along with a few horse racing promos means that Sun Bets promotion section is among the best in the industry.
Design & Usability
Sun Bets ranks among the best in terms of presentation. Their site is optimised for most web-enabled devices, including mobiles and tablets. One click on the fully interactive menu will reveal quick links to Sports, Racing and In-Play markets, which all expand further to show links to outright markets and coupons. This feature means that there’s no clutter, unlike many other sportsbook sites, and makes navigating Sun Bets an easy task, even for the least-experienced punter.
You’ll never miss the action with Sun Bets ‘game changing’ mobile app. It’s available for iOS and Android and has loads of great features. You can login and place bets with Touch ID on iPhone, chat live with the help centre and take advantage of all the features available on the desktop site. The app’s presentation is just as impressive and easy to use as the website, so even if you’re on the go, you’ll be able to fill out your betslip within minutes!
At present, Sun Bets only accepts Visa and Mastercard debit cards. This may discourage punters who prefer using e-wallets, however Sun Bets fast withdrawal times more than make up for this. They endeavour to process your withdrawals within just 24 hours, and then you must wait the standard 3-5 business days for your bank to process the payment.
