The sunnyplayer Spielothek convinces with a great range of popular slot machines. However, the well-known slots alone are not enough to join the ranks of my top online casinos. In this sunnyplayer test, I would like to show you that this provider was also able to convince in other important aspects. Here I highlight the entire game selection, the German-speaking customer service, the software and the numerous security measures for fairness and data protection. This makes it clear why this online casino is a recommended address for slots fans on the Internet.

This first part of the detailed review mainly deals with the games, the payout rates and details about the software and the company behind the operator of the website. Further information on the bonus offer, the mobile app and the general terms and conditions of the provider can be found in the respective subpages. You can find the links on the left side.
The overview of the entire range of games
The most important things should be mentioned first. The name sunnyplayer already indicates that this is a game library that works closely with the famous game library operator with the sun in the logo. The focus of this online casino is therefore clearly the slot machines, which some of you probably already know from the Merkur arcades. Nevertheless, the additional games available should not be neglected, as I would like to show you below.
The individual games are presented in more detail
Some of you may already be familiar with classics like Eye of Horus, Blazing Star and Triple Chance. At sunnyplayer you will find these and many more of the most popular Merkur slot machines. This means that many of the best-known slots in Germany are represented in the game selection. But with this provider you will also find some of the absolute highlights from the major game developers that delight internet casino visitors worldwide. This definitely includes the modern video slot machines from NetEnt. Titles like the epic Warlords - Crystal of Power, with great graphics and a great soundtrack, sit alongside the Swedish company's long-running hits like Starburst and Gonzo's Quest. The latter are among the best-known slot machines on the internet. This machine is one of the special games that regularly make dreams come true with high payouts.
With Microgaming, sunnyplayer also works with the largest software company in the field of online gambling. Games like Immortal Romance, Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones and Avalon are some of the notable workhorses from the oldest game developer in the industry. The provider presented here clearly positions itself as a slots casino.
Thanks to the mobile web app, you always have the play library with you!
The mobile casino of this provider offers you the opportunity to play over 220 games easily on the go. It is not necessary to download an app for this, because you can simply play directly in the browser of your smartphone or tablet. Although not all titles that you can play on the desktop PC are also available in the mobile app, this is not unusual for other providers either. While the most important slot machines - especially those from Merkur - are ready.
Suitable for beginners and high rollers: The limits of the games
It doesn't matter if you have a small budget to play or if you want to play as an advanced player with the highest stakes: All types of players are catered for with this provider. Thanks to the flexibly adjustable bets and paylines, you can get started on the slot machines with a bet of just one cent. Of course, the chance of big winnings, free spins and bonus rounds increases when you play with the full number of paylines and the highest possible amounts. You can, for example, bet up to €1 per spin on the Bars & Bells slot.
The betting limits at a glance
As usual, slot betting options vary greatly by title. This depends on the game-specific settings, but also on the number of paylines played. There are many slots with a minimum bet of €0.01 per payline, others start at €0.10, €0.20 or €0.50. A maximum of €1 per spin can currently be wagered. The machines offer all budgets enough room to develop.
Better than in the Spielo: The fair and tested payout ratios
The payout ratio (RTP – Return to Player) is of particular interest to those of you who have already gained gaming experience at slot machines in arcades or pubs. The slot machines that Merkur sets up there are also subject to rules that determine the payouts, but these are significantly less advantageous than online slots. So while a payout rate somewhere between 60 and 75 percent is usual in a typical game library, you can count on a rate of around 95% for the same games in the sunnyplayer online game library. This means that on average 95% of the stakes are paid back to the players. Regular checks by independent experts confirm the specified odds for the slot machines.
Thanks to the high computing power available to the Gaming Testing Laboratory, which tests sunnyplayer's random number generator, errors and manipulations of the probabilities would be noticed immediately. The rates confirmed in tests show that the payouts for the games are within the range provided by the provider. So you can see how the odds level off around this value in practice. That's how it should be!
A detailed look at the software and the provider
The sunnyplayer software is provided by edict egaming GmbH from Hamburg. As one of the few top providers in Germany that I have tested, the game library presented here offers a platform that is really "made in Germany". The company edict, founded in 1998, is also a 100% subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group and thus belongs to the same group as the Merkur Spielotheken. This also explains why this provider is one of the leading providers of Merkur slot machines on the Internet. No software is provided for download. Instead, you can use all functions and games directly in the browser.
Not only does the software allow you to easily integrate games that are not made by Merkur, but you can of course also test all titles free of charge. You can try out a game without obligation, learn the rules and optimize your game without risk.
The website of the provider presents itself modern and tidy. The menu navigation is well thought out and the clarity makes it possible to find important information quickly. A search function allows you to quickly find your favorite games. However, should you ever get stuck, the menus that allow you to contact customer service can always be found on the right-hand side of the screen.
Both edict and the sunnyplayer arcade itself work together with well-known companies in the software industry to ensure the highest possible security standards for encrypting your personal data. In this way, payment transactions and your player account data are always optimally protected. The standard here is comparable to that of online banking. The experts from DigiCert from the USA take care of the encryption for the internet gaming library tested here.
More information about the company
The sunnyplayer online casino has been part of the Swedish gaming company Cherry AB since 2015. This group includes other European Internet casinos that are mainly active in Scandinavia. Sunmaker was only the second licensed online gaming library that was able to offer its customers the official Merkur games and quickly established itself on the German-speaking market.
The Cherry AB company profile
The Stockholm-based company can look back on a history that began in 1963. From the beginning as a slot machine operator in southern and central Sweden, an international gaming company has developed over the past few decades, which is listed on the Swedish stock exchange.
In the meantime, the Swedes have built up a Europe-wide network of partners and subsidiaries in order to be able to offer their international customers a suitable offer. This includes the offshoot PlayCherry Ltd. This Malta-based branch operates the sunnyplayer website.
The always available customer service of the provider
Not only the game selection has been adapted to the needs of the German market, but also the customer service is tailored to players from Germany. You can reach them for free via live chat, email and contact form. The live chat is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer your questions. In the case of written inquiries by email or contact form, an answer can be expected within one working day. The only thing missing is a telephone hotline. But the competent live support should more than make up for this.
license and security measures from sunnyplayer
sunnyplayer is licensed by the state gaming authority of the EU member state of Malta. The granting of such an official license is subject to strict requirements with regard to the handling of customer data, the game balance and the fairness of the games. For example, the controls described in the payout percentages section are part of the requirements that any licensed provider must meet.
Protection against external access and manipulation is not the only characteristic of a reputable online gaming library. The active measures to ensure a responsible gaming environment are also part of the license requirements. Sunnyplayer works with the organizations GambleAware, GamCare and Gamblers Anonymous. Information on the subject of gambling addiction is provided together with assistance such as deposit limits and activity restrictions up to a complete self-ban.
sunnyplayer was able to collect these bonus points
sunnyplayer has not yet been able to collect any points at the awards. With an online casino that is still quite new, the lack of awards is not really surprising and also not a sign of poor quality. It looks better in the two following categories, in which the provider can book two points for himself. In addition to the welcome bonus, the provider also offers regular special promotions that offer us players additional opportunities to win and more gaming fun. As already mentioned, sunnyplayer is one of the few official Merkur partners and can therefore offer the extremely popular casino games.

Additional offers .
There is also a loyalty program that allows regular customers of the provider to exchange the collected points for cash. Points are collected from the first real money bet. However, I see no reason to give this solid provider an extra point for "additional offers". I think that 5 bonus points do justice to the operator presented here. I take a closer look at the promotions at this provider in my separate sunnyplayer bonus review.
A solid provider with the great slot machines
If you are looking for an online casino that provides you with the well-known casino games of the Gauselmann Group on your PC, smartphone and tablet, then sunnyplayer is a really good choice. The slots from other providers such as NetEnt and Microgaming also belong to the top tier of Internet slot games and will ensure long-term gaming fun.
- large game selection
- Slots made in Germany
- Slots from different developers
- Many payment methods
- no telephone service hotline
- RTP certificate not published
The small weaknesses are negligible for most slots fans and for others they are offset by the great variety. An alternative would be, for example, the DrückGlück Casino, which offers its visitors a similarly good selection of games. The lack of a telephone hotline and the certificate of the actual payout ratio (RTP), which was not published at the time of the test, are particularly negative. The latter does not mean that sunnyplayer does not have a certificate - because it is one of the basic requirements for licensing - but it would be desirable for transparency if it was always visible.
- TOP selection of slots
- Many payment methods
- High payout rates
- German speaking support
