The Sun Opens New Online CasinoPublished July 1, 2017 by Mike P
The summer 2017 launch of The Sun Casino could inspire the launch of other newspaper casino sites.
The Sun is one of the most recognisable UK newspapers, with thousands of Brits reading the paper to stay up-to-date with the latest news and sports. From now on, The Sun will also be providing an online casino service for its readers to enjoy. This is new for 2017 and now open to players.
The Sun Casino
A few different channels have been opened for readers, who can experience the latest in Playtech slots, progressive jackpots, and table games by visiting The Sun Casino. The slots and table games are comprised of recent Playtech releases, including American Dad, Robocop, Batman & The Riddler Riches, Superman: The Movie, and Age of the Gods.
The Sun Casino Live
The English media brand has also invested in acquiring live casino software. At the time of the casino’s launch, the selection includes key table gaming variants in the form of roulette, French roulette, unlimited blackjack, and blackjack. For something more specialised, The Sun has elected to also integrate casino hold’em and baccarat among the live dealer games.
The Sun Vegas
At The Sun Vegas, players can also have the choice of Microgaming slots. These come from another software provider, but are not available anywhere else on The Sun’s online gambling portal. When visiting this channel, players will encounter a range of well-known Microgaming releases, featuring Jurassic World, Game of Thrones, Bridesmaids, Last Vegas, and Jungle Jim: El Dorado.
Future Newspaper Casinos
The 2017 release of The Sun Casino begs the question of whether or not there will be a continued rise in newspaper casino sites. Over in Spain, there has already been the example of Marca casino, with loyal readers given access to the officially licensed site. Looking back to the UK, it will be interesting to see if a newspaper like The Daily Star or The Daily Mail elects to follow suit.
