The Sun Play is a slots and games brand on the Nektan platform. It’s part of The Sun’s gambling products group that includes The Sun Bingo and The Sun Vegas. Note that the products are not linked though so you can join each individually. At The Sun Play you’ll find a large suite of slots from many of the top providers. These include Red Tiger, Pragmatic Play, Net Entertainment, Blueprint Gaming, Microgaming and Eyecon. New players are also welcomed with a deposit and spins bonus.
The Sun Play Welcome Offer
New players to The Sun Play are welcomed with a first deposit bonus. Make a minimum deposit of £10 to receive a 100% match up to £100 in bonus funds & 50 spins on Wolfs Gold. Wagering terms apply and in this case the bonus comes with x40 the sum of your deposit and bonus amount. With respect to the spins any wins are paid as a bonus. This bonus also comes with a x40 wagering requirement. A second and third deposit bonus is also available. Details plus terms and conditions can be found on The Sun Play promotions page.
<P>Unlike other Nektan brands there is no bingo alternative welcome bonus at The Sun Play. This is because there is no bingo. We assume this is because of a clash with The Sun Bingo on Virtue Fusion. In our view you are probably not going to be visiting The Sun Play for bingo anyway and you would be better off playing bingo at a more dedicated site.
The Sun Play Slots
The Sun Play offers a good selection of slots and games that are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop. Game providers include Net Entertainment, IGT, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Red Tiger and Core Gaming. You can peruse the slots by latest additions, top games and casino games. Daily drop jackpots are a recent new addition to the platform.
Popular slots include Starburst, Pyramid King, Cash Volt, Gems Gone Wild, Immortal Glory, Banana Drop, Centurion Megaways, Voodoo Gold and Jurassic World. These are joined by Must Drop Daily Jackpots, Megaways Slots and other progressives. Players can also play table games like blackjack and roulette. The Sun Play does not offer live casino options so you will not be able to play Dream Catcher, Deal Or No Deal Live etc.
The Sun Play Promotions
Nektan sites tend to offer regular player promotions although they do tend to be deposit orientated. For example there may be a game of the week where if you deposit you can get spins on a selected slot. Occasionally there may be promotions organised by slot operators. For example Pragmatic have recently (2020) have run prize draws for players involved in the Daily Cash Drops Jackpots. Beyond the welcome offer, the player promotions side of The Sun Play is fairly limited. At time of writing there was a Game Of The Week bonus which gave you 10 spins for depositing £10. Additionally there was a losses back bonus of 10% up to £10. A spins drop and must drop jackpot promotion from Pragmatic Play were also on offer. The latter however is a networked promotion. As with all promos, note that terms and conditions will apply so do look out for any wagering requirements.
No app is required to play The Sun Play on mobile. You can login and play as normal with mobile, tablet and desktop. This gives you access most of the slots that are available. Payments can be made with the usual debit cards plus services such as Boku, Neteller and Skrill. Paypal is also now an option. If you need to contact The Sun Play then email, telephone and live support is available although note that this is not 24/7.
The Spins Verdict
If you like slots then The Sun Play offers a good selection of the best games from many of the top providers. We like that you can locate games by provider but do feel that the navigation is a bit dated on the desktop site. You do need to use search if you’re keen on locating Megaways titles. To date Nektan are one of the few platforms where Slingo doesn’t dominate whilst The Sun Play is one of the few sites that doesn’t offer a bingo channel. That’s not such a bad thing given how bad bingo is on a large majority of slot brands.
The Sun Play is in many respects the unknown sister of The Sun Bingo and it’s more recent addition The Sun Vegas. That doesn’t mean it should be overlooked. The welcome offer is reasonable and players terms OK. Minimum deposits/withdrawals are £10 plus there are no fees, unless you opt for mobile withdrawals. We would like to see live casino games though at the site whilst The Sun Play exclusives could well be dropped as there’s only one – Reel All About It. Overall it does the job but could be a touch better.
