Sun Bets accepts payments from Visa/Visa Electron, Mastercard debit cards. Their range of payment options is limited to these and the don’t accept any prepaid or corporate cards. Payments are typically processed within 24 hours.
A live 24/7 is available in case you have any queries or any issues with payment/adding or withdrawing funds.
Despite being a new addition to the gambling biz, Sun Bets has everything a player needs for a great gambling experience: a good range of markets and games, a fair share of bonuses, and a polished no-fluff website.
Although not the most generous platform in terms of cash bonuses, their daily price boosts and odds are a step ahead competition. Their bonuses are also less limited in terms and easy to get.
Perhaps one of their biggest disadvantages is that they only offer a few payment methods so that is not convenient for all players. Also, there are no VIP rewards for loyal players and big spenders.
In regards to safety, since the website just launched last year in 2016, we haven’t heard of any major complaints. Still, since we haven’t tested the platform extensively, this may be a concern in the future.
