The Sun Play
The Sun is a huge newspaper brand in the UK, and has been known to try its hand at a few different forms of entertainment, so it was no surprise to anybody when The Sun set its sights on the online gambling world.
Nektan are a well-known network, with many online casino brands under their belt, and they have developed a reputation for being lazy and, frankly, self-serving at times, seeming not to care too much about their players. This was the platform that The Sun decided they wanted for The Sun Play.
That is not to cast any judgement on any other part of The Sun’s portfolio, but when it comes to their online casino, The Sun Play, the Nektan choice will seem like a message to experienced players that The Sun is looking to gain the greatest possible success while expending the minimal amount of effort they can.
Whether that is an intentional philosophy or not here, it certainly feels like one when you start to take in The Sun Play, an online casino that seems to assume being part of a brand that is a legitimate household name will be enough.
There’s a tough shock coming if that is the logic for The Sun Play, because they are entering one of the most competitive and fast-growing industries in the world, and having a name people know isn’t close to enough to guarantee any impact will be made.
Design and theme
If you are familiar with The Sun newspaper, then the chances are you know exactly what the design looks like here, and that isn’t a complaint. When a brand is this well-known, it makes sense to ensure people relate the casino to the brand, and the red and white colour scheme will certainly ensure that happens.
Past the colour scheme, however, it all gets very Nektan. Nektan casinos are excellent for navigation, but at this point, with numerous sites having identical navigational tools, and therefore looking fairly similar in terms of design, it’s all getting a bit boring. It is possible to maintain good quality navigation while also coming up with just one different idea, we’d all take one at this point.
For a brand like The Sun to allow their online casino to become a clone of Nektan sites seems like an unwise decision, because if you ignore the colour scheme, this just looks like a Nektan site, which someone works against the brand recognition idea.
If there’s one thing that Nektan sites do offer, it’s a wide selection of games from a range of top quality software developers, and with Aristocrat Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, IGT, Microgaming, Nektan, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, Realistic Games, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive providing the titles at The Sun Play, that’s definitely what you get here.
Slots, as with all Nektan sites, are the focus here, and there’s quite a range with the likes of The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays, Wolf Cub, Icy Wilds, Cleopatra Plus, and Hong Kong Tower showing the dedication to newer releases, while there’s also a host of classic titles on offer such as Gonzo’s Quest, Cleopatra, Dazzle Me, Da Vinci Diamonds, and Raging Rhino.
There’s a decent table and card games selection here as well, although it fades into the shadow of the slots on offer.
An excellent collection of games on offer is certainly a big help to an online casino trying to find success, but it takes more than just that, and it doesn’t feel like The Sun Play has anything else to give.
