If you're a fan of PlayTech games, then The Sun Vegas is the casino for you. All of Playtech's biggest and most well-known titles are here, such as the ever-expanding Age of Gods series of games and their many Hollywood and TV tie-in games.
If you're looking for some online casino stables, however, then that's a different story. The legendary Starburst by NetEnt, Book of Dead by Play'NGo and more are nowhere to be found. However, Playtech's library of games should have rough equivalents to any of your favourite games that may be missing. For instance, while you won't find Book of Dead, or Simsalabim, there are plenty of other Ancient-Egyptian-themes slots for you to play, like Cleopatra and Eyes of Horus.
The jackpots selection is decent, but again, don't expect to see Mega Moolah by MicroGaming or Mega Fortune by NetEnt. You will, however, still have tons of options to choose from, like Age of Gods: God of Storms, Gladiator Jackpot, and Jackpot Giant, with several of those going beyond the million-pound mark.
They have a decent amount of table games on offer, with different variations of roulette, blackjack, and video poker, as well as games like craps and Keno. If you're a fan of casino games, then The Sun Vegas is likely the online casino for you.
UI & UX at The Sun Vegas Casino - A Good Start
At it's most basic level, the user interface at The Sun Vegas works. Games are split into larger categories that are easy to understand, arranged in rows of 5 to make it easy to take in a decent amount of information at once, there are some sub-category filters than can be used, and there's a search function that searches across all categories.
It's easy to find games when you're looking for specific titles, but there's one thing that doesn't quite hit the spot for me. I don't think it's very easy for players to discover new games. When you consider that The Sun Vegas library doesn't feature some of the most popular games in the industry, this becomes a problem.
Heading to the "Slots" category presents you with something that initially looks tidy and manageable. You initially see 10 'Featured' games, then 10 'New' games, then 10 'Jackpot' games (despite jackpots having their own section), and then just 'All Slots'. When it comes to 'All Slots', which is clearly a behemoth of a section, there are only two ways to organise them: alphabetically or by most popular.
Again, this isn't a dealbreaker. The UI, by and large, works. However if users could select different themes (e.g. Movies, Ancient Eypt, Space, TV Shows, etc.), then I think it would be easier for players to find alternatives to the popular games missing from The Sun Vegas' library. While it might not exactly be a small task for the team at The Sun Vegas to tag all their games and add these themed filters, I think it could make a world of difference to their players.
