32Red are now one of the largest gambling portals in the industry. Having started within the casino sector, their move into online poker and subsequently online bingo was one that was welcomed. Their most recent addition to their arsenal was that of their sportsbook, just topping off what was already a successful company.
Throughout this review we will be giving you an overview of how each section of 32Red performs and, more importantly, if it’s up to the task.
When you register a new account with the 32Red sportsbook you will be eligible to claim a free £10 bet. The promotion is based on your opening bet being within their live betting section. All you need to do is place a bet on any market within their in-play section of £10 or more and win or lose, 32Red will credit your account with a free £10 bet.
The bet needs to be placed at odds of 2.0 or greater and you will get 7 days from opening your account to placing your first bet before losing the right to claim this promotion. The £10 bet should hit your account within 24 hours of the bet being settled, it does state that if your bet has not been credited within this time frame to get in touch with customer support.
On top of your free bet you’ll also get 10 free spins at the chosen slot when you register. You can see which slot is the ‘game of choice’ from within the 32Red website, but again, contact customer support if you aren’t sure. Any winnings from the free spins will hit your account in the form of a bonus that will need playing through 30 times before being able to withdraw.
Daily Horse Racing Price Boosts
Every day at 32Red you will ne able to bet on a number of horse race which are carrying a price boost. The price boost basically means that the odds for that horse will be ( or matched) the best in the industry. The odds will be highlight with an ‘,’ from within the bookmaker and the bets will change on a daily basis.
Betting Odds and Markets
The pricing structure at 32Red is of a fairly good standard. We compared a number of markets with some of the bigger bookmakers in the industry and found that whilst 32Red weren’t as strong, they weren’t all that far off. From the markets that we compared they were always within 5% of the best price and even matched the best price we could find on Oddschecker.com on a number of occasions. We were aware coming into this review that 32Red Sportsbook did have a rather jaded reputation for being tight with odds, but to be honest, from the games and markets that we have checked, we didn’t find this to be the case.
The market coverage for the bookmaker is again of a decent standard, without ever being great. Like most companies, football and horse racing are the two largest sports, with tens of thousands of markets available around the clock. Outside of these, credible mentions must go to Rugby Union, Rugby League, Basketball, Ice Hockey, cricket and UFC for their market coverage.
There’s no dedicated mobile app to download as such with 32Red, but you will be able to aces their mobile site from any smartphone browser. If you’re on an iOS or Android device then you can easily add this to your homepage in an app form and we must mention that the mobile site is one of the best designed that we have come across. The only gripe is that a couple of the live betting markets do tend to take a while to load, although this could be simply a connection issue.
The live betting section is definitely something that is still very much in its ascendency. The range of markets on offer is very small compared to most established bookmakers, but their integration of the in-play section with their welcome offer highlights a keen interest in improving it down the line.
There are two promotions available to you when you first register an account with the 32Red casino. The first is a £10 no deposit bonus. Basically all you need to do is register a bank card to your account and then the £10 will be credited to use on any of their hundreds of casino games. The maximum you can win from the promotion is £100 and you will have 7 days to use your bonus money before it is removed.
The second part is £32 free in bonus money when you deposit £10. This promotion actually runs right the way up to £160, so to claim the maximum bonus amount you will need to deposit at least £50. For every £10 you deposit the bonus will increase in increments of £32. You will need to wager through your full bonus amount 40 times before being able to withdraw.
Slots Welcome Bonus
If you are looking to solely play slots at the 32Red casino then you might be interested in their slots welcome package. With this you can get a bonus of up to £500 when you make your opening deposit of just £200. The promotion will start from deposits of £50 and up, with the lowest nomination getting you a £125 bonus. Every additional £50 that you deposit from here will increase your bonus by £125. Again, you will need to wager through the full bonus amount 40 times before being able to withdraw and only residents in the UK, Germany and Russia are eligible to claim this offer.
Table Game Bonus
Similarly to the slots promotion above, you can also get a table games welcome offer which is solely for clearing on any table game within the casino. The promotion is essentially a 200% match on deposit made from £50 upwards, with the maximum bonus being that of £500. Again you will need tow ager through the full amount 40 times before withdrawing and is only available to payers from the UK, Germany and Russia.
On top of these, 32Red run a host of daily, weekly and monthly promotions ranging from winning red-letter days to trips of a life time. You will need to check the promotions page on their website for more up to date information on these.
Software and Games
The 32Red casino is powered by one of the biggest software developers in the industry, Microgaming. Microgaming are famed for having the biggest single back catalogue of slots and table games to choose from, making them an obvious choice for a lot of online casinos. The software can be accessed by either an instant play browser based version or a download version for both Mac and Windows computers. Again, the mobile version isn’t downloadable (like the sportsbook) but is accessible via their site simply by visiting it in your smartphones browser.
The table game section at 32Red is really quite excellent with a boat load of options to choose from. The usual suspects are all there such as blackjack, roulette, craps and baccarat, but what’s probably most impressive is that there are so many variations of each to play.
Slots is where 32Red really comes alive and they have over 300 titles to choose from, making them easily one of the biggest slots casinos in the industry. The higher profile games include I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Iron Man 2, Thunderstruck, Tomb Raider and Avalon II.
The progressive tables are where the majority of slots action takes place. You’re getting around 20 titles to choose from, with the classic Mega Moolah headlining the event. The jackpots do tend to range quite heavily from just a few thousand to several millions.
At 32Red’s bingo room you’re going to be able to get £5 completely free when you simply register a new account and also register a debit or credit card to your account. You won’t have to make a deposit with the card, but the card must be on your account.
You can use the £5 on any bingo game and will hit your account within 15 minutes of registering. You will have to use your bonus within 7 days and any remaining bonus will be removed from your account after this time.
Deposit £20, Get £32
As the title suggest, when you make your first deposit at 32Red bingo, providing that it is of £20 or more, then they will credit your account with £32 worth of bonus money as well. Any winnings or bonus money that you receive will need to be wagered through 10 times by purchasing that amount of bingo tickets or by playing on any of the 32Red bingo side games that are on offer.
25% Re-Deposit Bonus
Every time you make a deposit with 32Red Bingo you will be eligible to claim a 25% re-load bonus on that deposit up to £50. You of course do not have to take the bonus if you do not wish, but you must contact customer support to opt-out before playing.
Software and Games
The software for the bingo hall has been designed by Microgaming, who just so happen to be one of the best in the business. With this comes a plethora of games ranging from 90 to 80 ball bingo games, along with a host of online slots, video poker and table games as the side game collection.
The games can be accessed by either your browser via instant play or via your mobile through your smartphones browser. There is no download version available for either, but they work equally as well no matter which route you choose.
The sign up offer from within the 32Red poker room is very substantial, in fact, you can claim up to $1,000 in bonus money when you register a new account. The beauty of the bonus is that everyone goes in on an even playing field, meaning the amount you deposit is irrelevant. The bonus works by simply working through a number of points within your first 30 days play, before the cash bonus is applied to your account.
So, in the first 30 days if you manage to hit 10,000 Redbacks (32Red poker points) then you will be awarded with a £32 welcome bonus, the lowest you can receive. The maximum you can receive will be $1,000 and to qualify for this you will need to earn 320,00 Redbacks within the first 30 days of registering.
After the first months play you will be eligible to claim up to 30% rakeback on all real money games at the poker room. They work in a similar way to the bonus in that the more Redbacks you earn, the more money you will get. For example, 10,00 Redbacks will get $100 in rakeback, where 1,000,000 Redbacks will get you $10,000 in rakeback. The only thing you need to remember is that any Redbacks sat in your account that have been thee for over 90 days without you playing will be removed.
Software and Games
Following on from their affiliation with both casino and bingo rooms, 32Red have opted to stick with Microgaming to power their poker room as well. What this brings is a huge player database and a mountain of poker games that can be accessed around the clock.
The software can be used as either a download or instant play version in your browser. It’s compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, but on top of that you can access the full poker room directly from your mobile. There’s no download for mobile, but simply enter the site in your smartphones browser and you will be good to go.
32Red have been online since 2002. The company started life targeting poker and casino players, but since then have been able to branch out into both bingo and sports betting, with limited success it has to be said.
They’ve been one of a number of gambling sites that have managed to associate themselves with some hefty sponsors over the years. Football has been their main target and throughout 2006 to 2008 were sponsors of Premier League outfit, Aston Villa. Since then they have gone on to sponsor Swansea City, Crawley Town and Rangers FC.
Since 2014 the company have been keen to expand and have made a couple of sizeable industry purchases including Go Wild Casino and Roxy Palace, estimating to have cost the company over £20million for both. These purchases seem to have paid off somewhat and the company reported in 2016 that profits were up 52% over the previous year, with a view to expand further in the near future.
The company are currently based and licensed out of Gibraltar, allowing them to operate legally within a number of countries around the world, including the UK.
