The Sun Vegas Review
The Sun aren't shy when it comes to launching online gambling products. Their bingo brand is perhaps the most well known and successful whilst on the flipside their betting and casino product dramatically failed. A lesser known brand, The Sun Play, runs on the Nektan platform. Better results will be hoped for with the addition of their latest brand, The Sun Vegas. For this launch The Sun have opted for the more tried and tested Playtech platform to give players access to top slots and live casino.
Introducing The Sun Vegas
Don't expect too many bells and whistles when you first arrive at The Sun Vegas. It's a simply designed website which highlights the welcome offer as well as featured slots and games. A blurry image of Las Vegas is perhaps the only link between the website and the city that has inspired it. Surprisingly the website hasn't been designed to be responsive to browsers, but the site is accessible to players who wish to use mobile, tablet or desktop. No app is required to play on Apple or Android devices.
The Sun Vegas Welcome Offer
Sign up as a new player to The Sun Vegas and you can receive a 100% first deposit bonus up to £300. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to receive the offer. Wagering terms apply and for this particular bonus it is set at x50. Skrill/Moneybookers and Neteller are not valid for this promotion. Note that the bonus can only be spent on slot games. This means you'll not be able to use it on table games, live casino or instants. Full terms can be found by heading over to the website.
Inside the lobby of The Sun Vegas you will find hundreds of top slots. These include DC titles such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League. Other top titles include Fluffy Favourites, Fishin Frenzy, The Sun Winning Headlines, King Kong Cash, Wolf Gold, Reel King, Kingdoms Rise and Age Of The Gods. These games are from a number of top providers including Eyecon Games, Slingo and Playtech. However top slots from Net Entertainment are noticeable by their absence.
The Sun Vegas Promotions
Jackpot slots are well represented at The Sun Vegas. Big money progressives such as those on the Age of The Gods titles can be found alongside Daily Drops & Wins plus Fire blaze Jackpot titles. Slingo games can also be enjoyed here as well as table games and live casino. The latter includes Buffalo Blitz, Spin A Win, Quantum Blackjack and Age Of The Gods Roulette. Sic Bo, Casino Hold'em and 3 Card Brag are also represented.
All players who wager at the site will be rewarded with loyalty points. For example wager £10 on a standard slot or £20 on live casino to receive 1 point. You'll need to accumulate 100 points to convert them into £1 cash. Essentially you can earn up to 1% cashback when you play! Other than this and the welcome offer promotions are on the not available side. However we do know that past prize promos have been shared with Sun Bingo and Fabulous Bingo.
The Sun Vegas offers players a number of useful tools so that they can action responsible gambling. These tools include deposit limits, reality checks, cooling off periods and self exclusion. These can be implemented via your account or by contacting customer services. You'll need to go to the help page to discover the telephone and email contact options. These services are available between 8am and 1am daily.
The Playtech casino platform is one of our favourites. It offers a good selection of slots and casino games. Given the success of Sun Bingo and the poor performance of their other brands it's not a surprise to see Sun Vegas emerge. The welcome offer is OK but the wagering terms we feel are on the high side, especially for this platform. Perhaps the biggest issue for this particular site is it's brand. Not everyone is a fan of The Sun and many will choose alternatives simply because of their views.
