The Sun Play Review

When a brand that is well known in another industry enters the world of iGaming, it will tend to go one of two ways.

Sometimes, you will get an online casino that has been made with care, by studying what works within the market, and producing a top-quality product that combines this attention to trend with the skills that have caused such success in other industries.

However, there is also the other way this can go, and that is for a company to assume that brand recognition is enough for success in the online casino world so no effort is made to do anything new or special, instead being content to tread water and assume that fortune will just come based on a name.

The Sun Play seems to have very much gone for the second option, and this is made apparent by the site being on the Nektan network.

One of the biggest newspaper and media brands in the UK, if not the world, The Sun has a huge legacy behind it, but no effort has been made to transfer that into the iGaming world, instead The Sun Play is a mirror image of every other Nektan casino.

Design and theme

The only factor that separates the majority of Nektan casinos from each other is the concept used within the design theme. Some work better than others, but all this usually means is you get a different logo, banner, and colour scheme, and that’s exactly what happens here.

If you are award of The Sun as a brand, you will probably be able to guess that there is a white and red colour scheme here with the usual logo for The Sun present for the sake of that aforementioned brand recognition.

However, due to the structure and layout of the site being the spitting image of every other Nektan site, it is more the network than The Sun brand that stands out here, which seems to be against all logic.

Instead of feeling like an online casino that is brought to you by one of the most successful companies in the UK, this instead feels like just another site on the same network, with the same layout, the same promotions, and the same content, which seems counter-productive to The Sun’s attitude of letting their name do the work.

We’ve seen other brands try and paint by numbers to find success in the online casino industry, but we’ve very rarely seen one be quite as lazy about it as The Sun Play is.

Games

As always with Nektan sites, the saving grace is the games here. The game selection maybe be similar to many Nektan sites (and identical to some) but that does not change the fact that there is a lot on offer for players here.

With games coming from software developers including Aristocrat Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, IGT, Microgaming, Nektan, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, Realistic Games, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive, there’s little that you could want that you won’t find here.

The plethora of video slots and table and card games available at The Sun Play is genuinely impressive, and would be enough to keep most players happy. However, if you’ve ever played at a Nektan site before, the lack of originality may well stick in your teeth with The Sun Play, because it simply does not feel original in any way at all, and that makes it very difficult to get excited about.

The Sun Play isn’t a bad site, in fact it’s quite a good one, but it’s just the same site again with a different colour scheme, and that just feels boring.
