Sun Poker is no longer available online due to site closure. We suggest playing at these Playtech Poker rooms
When Peak Entertainment announced that Sun Poker switched from Cryptologic to Playtech’s iPoker network in December 2008, its loyal players were thrilled.
This means more games and bigger tournaments, in Texas Hold'em, 7 Card Stud, Omaha High and Omaha Hi-Lo, and even more poker entertainment!
Since its inception in 1997, Sun Poker has taken the stance that it may not be the largest poker room in the online poker world, but it is committed to being the most entertaining.
And now that Sun Poker players can combine a better selection with already quality customer service and unmatched promotions, they can hold’em and fold’em in the very best of care and entertainment.
As their site says, it’s all about "per-SUN-alization". From land-based events to the infinite online poker room, their staff of customer care representatives strives to set Sun Poker apart from the competition in the best possible way.

The Sun Poker VIP Poker Club.
Better refresh your astronomy knowledge; you’re going to need it. Sun Poker has five different levels of VIPs, all segregated on different planets based on point values. The higher your point value, the closer to the Sun you get!
Members start on Mars and work their way in from there. Members can cash in their points at any point, not just at the end of the month, with 5000 points being the minimum redemption level.
Members are also entitled to increasing benefits, such as monthly freeroll tournaments, as they journey toward the Sun level.
