The Sun newspaper has launched a brand new online betting site called Sun Bets. New FreeBets customers can join and claim a Sun Bets free bet worth £10. This offer does require a first bet of £5 and free £10 bets to use on the rest of that day’s card. However, once the bet is settled, the free bet will be credited to the new account within 48 hours.
The Sun Bets free bet offer is one of the main attractions at this new sportsbook. There are also other offers and promotions but they are mainly money-back type specials and price boosts. Football and TV shows are the normal betting mediums where punters can expect price enhancements and free bet specials.
Sun Bets is the brand new online sportsbook run in conjunction with the popular tabloid Sun Newspaper. Unsurprisingly it’s very similar in appearance to its illustrious cousin with a ‘red top’ and it uses non-nonsense plain English.
Offer is only available once to new customers who sign-up using valid promo code G10. A qualifying bet is a bet of £/€5 (cash) or more placed at minimum single odds of 1/2 (1.5) on any sports market. Non-runners, void or cashed out bets will not count as qualifying bets. For each-way bets, only the win component of the bet will count towards the qualifying requirements. Your free bet cannot be used as a permed accumulator. A maximum £/€ 10 Free Bet will be applied to your account within 48 hours of you placing your qualifying bet. Winnings from free bet excludes stake. Free bet will expire after 30 days if unused. This offer can be used in conjunction with any subsequent offers. Offer can be withdrawn at any time at Sun Bets discretion. Full Promotion T&Cs apply.

Betting Markets / Features Available
There is everything you would expect to find from a new-age online sportsbook at Sun Bets… and a lot more! Just how many bets they expect to take on Australian Rules Football, Surfing or Ice Hockey remains to be seen but they combine to make Sun Bets a pretty comprehensive bookmaker.
Like most, Football and Horseracing are the headline sports at Sun Bets but it is good to find some traditional betting shop fare such as greyhound racing. But the Sun clearly knows their readership and likely sportsbook users too and therefore there is a lot of ‘Specials’ markets on offer covering such things as X Factor, the Christmas No. 1 song and the next James Bond.
In addition to a good number of sports on offer, it’s the depth of betting markets that really impressed us. A Premiership game can feature over a whopping 350 different betting markets!
Sunbets Mobile Betting
The Sunbets mobile app is free to install on iOS devices (including iPad) by simply searching for ‘Sun Bets’ in the Apple App Store. Once you have found it click ‘download’ and the Sunbets App will soon appear on your home screen.
A reminder the Sun Bets free bet will only be rewarded to new clients who use the latest Sun bets promo code when creating a new account.

All ongoing promotions are available to Sunbets mobile app users with the scroll menu offering sports in alphabetical order plus the popular ‘Sun Boosts’ and ‘Daily Specials’.
It has to be said the Sun Bets web site have very few bad points. Customer Service is available 24/7 via ‘Live Chat’, the phone lines are 7/11 7-days a week, there’s an email address and even a dedicated Twitter feed you can message.
The site may lack the flair that can be found elsewhere, there is no live streaming of sporting events and the graphics are very basic.
In summing up our Sun Bets review we see this site as a welcome addition to the online sportsbook jungle, Sun Bets features a no-nonsense free bet offer. It also has some nice concessions and price enhancements which making winning a little easier.
True, it’s not jam packed with features – stats, live streamed sports, infographics etc – but it does have a great Blog section with contributors such as the ‘At The Races’ frontman Matt Chapman providing insightful and entertaining contributions.
All-in-all this is a no-frills experience but it is also a busy shop with it’s shelves laden with betting opportunities. That means plenty of sports, hundreds of betting markets and multiple betting options including Yankee, Canadian, Heinz and Lucky 15/31/63 multi-bets.
