Safer Gambling Provision

The Sun Play succinctly outlines its responsible gaming policy, reiterating the business’ commitment to a safe and enjoyable gambling space.

There is a short questionnaire designed to alert players to an undiagnosed gambling problem. These questions include:

  • Does gambling affect your ability to go to work or university?
  • When you’ve gambled all your funds, do you feel a sense of despair?
  • Do you gamble way beyond what you can afford? (eg. even if you can’t afford a bus fare home)
  • Do you find you only want to spend money on gambling?
  • Has gambling affected your relationship with family and friends?
  • Does gambling make you depressed or suicidal?

If a player has answered yes to any of these questions, they should get in touch with an organisation like GamCare immediately. This is the link to their 24 hour chat service.

The page also highlights the tools that are available to players which include setting deposit limits, Reality Check, “Take a break,” Self-Exclusion and GAMSTOP.

About The Sun Play

The Sun Play is back, baby! After a few year hiatus, the tabloid-inspired slots and casino site has returned on the Jumpman Gaming platform. That means, for all intents and purposes, this is a brand-new site. If you were a member of the previous incarnation, then your credentials are no good here! Sign up again and take the classic Jumpman Mega Reel welcome bonus!

If you’re a bingo fan, you may have already played at Sun Bingo, which is also inspired by the famous tabloid newspaper. Although The Sun Play is similarly designed in the trademark bright red, there’s no actual operational connection. This site is completely under Jumpman’s remit, like some other newspaper inspired sites like Daily Record and Mirror Bingo.

Bonus & Promotions

The welcome bonus consists of a first deposit and then a spin of Jumpman’s trademark Mega Reel. Though you may have seen a variation of welcome offer a million times, we’re a big fan of the top prize here because it’s on the world’s favourite* slot, Big Bass Bonanza by Pragmatic Play.

If you don’t strike the top prize on your welcome spin of the Reel, fear not! Every time you deposit a subsequent £20, you’ll get another bite at the apple (and a spin of the Mega Reel).

As normal with a Jumpman site, there’s a very healthy looking promotion section including a monthly giveaway. Not to get you too excited, but as we’re writing this review in November 2023, there’s a MacBook giveaway that you could be entering. This will obviously change month on month, but the monthly giveaways are a regular feature of the Jumpman promotional page. Terms apply, of course.

*This is not scientifically proven, but a bloody good guess!

Games Available

The Sun Play is very slots and table game heavy for a Jumpman site. There is no Pragmatic Play bingo here, which is unusual but presumably since you’re here, not particularly disappointing.

The top line figure is a collection of over 1000 online slots, which shows just how much Jumpman have grown their library in recent years.

There is a also an impressive table games section including Pragmatic Play’s fast growing live casino product.

As well as Jackpot slots and scratch card instant games, there are also two lobster-themed games; Lobster Bob’s Crazy Crab Shack and Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania Slingo. There’s no deep and meaningful reason why we singled out those slots other than we love the names, so there’s no need to get crabby about it. (There’s also a game called Crabbin’ for Cash: Extra Big Catch, which is also just tickety boo).

The Sun Play Design & User Experience

The red and white design is instantly recognisable as the Sun newspaper’s colours. Apart from the design, however, there’s not a lot that actually links the two entities together.

Final Thoughts

The Sun Play is back after a long hiatus. Previously on a different (and not very good) casino platform, it has returned with a new agreement on Jumpman Gaming. As far as we’re concerned it’s a completely new beast! The top prize on the welcome offer is on one of our favourite slots and there are lots of table games for players to enjoy. You don’t even have to be a fan of the Sun!
