About Redbet

Even if you’re a fairly seasoned online gambler, there’s a good chance that you won’t really have heard of Redbet – which is surprising in many ways, given that it was founded way back in 2002 and begun to operate online in 2004.

Nonetheless, the site, which is operated by Malta-based Evoke Gaming Ltd, has long had a loyal following from people who appreciate its distinctive charms and the convenience it offers in providing a place to bet on sports, play casino games and even have a go at poker, all in one place.

Promotions

It’s worth noting at this point that because Redbet is a general gambling site rather than squarely a sportsbook, many of the promotions here are only relevant to the casino and poker sides of its offering.

However, you can still look forward to the kind of first-deposit welcome bonus that is customary on sites like this, and it’s also well worth checking the ‘Offers’ section from time to time to see what other goodies may have popped up for sports fans.

Sports Betting Types and Betting Market

You can bet on almost every major sport at Redbet

Pretty much all of the types of bet that you can imagine are able to be placed at Redbet, ranging from single, double and treble bets right up to each-way bets and system bets consisting of various combinations of selections.

As for the represented sports, you’ve got all of the obvious and even many lesser-spotted options from which to pick, with the below being just a few:

  • Football

  • Tennis

  • Cricket

  • Horse racing

  • Darts Snooker

  • Motorsports

  • Chess

  • Floorball

  • Trotting

You might not be shocked to learn, though, that as far as the sheer number of markets is concerned, it’s football that serves up easily the deepest selection, with more than 60,000 on offer at the time of our visit to the site for this review.

Popular competitions and leagues at Redbet from across the various sporting categories include the likes of the:

  • English Premier League

  • NFL

  • ATP and WTA tennis

  • Spanish La Liga Championship football

Betting Coverage

One of the most surprising aspects of Redbet is its lack of an official mobile app, whether for iOS, Android or any other popular platform. However, the site does optimise itself nicely when you visit it directly via your smartphone or tablet’s web browser, so it’s unlikely that you’ll regret the absence of an app.

Another thing that Redbet offers, as is becoming increasingly sought-after in the online gambling world, is live betting, which enables you to have a flutter on the unfolding outcome of a sporting event as it happens. You can bet on all of the following sports ‘live’, although this may not be an exhaustive list:

  • Football

  • Tennis

  • Cricke

  • Golf

  • Basketball

  • Ice hockey

  • Volleyball

Software and Graphics

Whether you use the desktop or mobile version of the site, a very simple red, white and black colour scheme makes clear that Redbet is all about fuss-free functionality, rather than trying to dazzle you with graphical flair.

Visit the sports betting part of Redbet’s desktop portal, for instance, and you’ll find the list of sports on which you can bet down the left-hand sidebar. Meanwhile, the mobile site’s ‘hamburger’ menu helps to keep everything looking tidy for on-the-go bettors.

Extra Value

Redbet isn’t the kind of site that attempts to woo you with quirky features that you couldn’t expect to find anywhere else – instead, it focuses on the basics and does them very well.

We certainly appreciate the simple, but logical site design that loads quickly and doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. We also like the page of the site that explains the various available betting types in detail, as will likely be appreciated by novice and seasoned bettors alike.

Other Offering

You can also enjoy casino, live casino and poker games at Redbet

A definite selling point of Redbet is the fact that you can enjoy casino, live casino and poker games on the site with the same user ID, without the need to switch to or register with another online gambling portal. This means you can enjoy such games as:

  • Berryburst 

  • Jumanji Video Slot

  • Blackjack Classic Low

  • Joker Wild

  • American Roulette Live

  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

It’s easy to add money to your account with which to place bets, simply by clicking on the ‘Deposit’ box at the top of the page and selecting from the various deposit methods listed.

Payout Policy

As is the case with other online gambling sites, when you request a withdrawal for the first time as a member of Redbet, you can expect to be asked to verify your identity before you will be allowed to take any money out of your account. All withdrawals are processed to the payment method that you used to deposit, in accordance with money laundering laws.

Customer Support

A comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section provides answers to such common enquiries as “How do I change my password?”, “How do I make a deposit?” and “What payment methods do you accept?”

There are also various ways to contact the site team directly, including email, telephone and live chat. The site claims to provide support on a 24-hour basis, but at the time we visited, we were advised to ‘leave a message’ when we attempted to use the live chat feature.

The site is available in various languages such as Swedish, German and Spanish, and when you toggle to a different language, the support section is also provided in that language.

Who Can Play?

Given that the site has Malta and UK licences, it’s fair to say that if one of these countries is your own, you will probably be able to legally use the site. However, we would always advise you to check with the site if unsure, and always ensure you are compliant with the law in your given part of the world.

The list of countries in which you prohibited from betting at Redbet is unfortunately too long to include in full here, but nonetheless covers such territories as:

 The United States

 France

 Iran

 Russia

 Australia

 Turkey

 Ireland

 Saudi Arabia

Licence

Evoke Gaming Ltd – the company that runs Redbet – holds several licences from The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), as well as a licence from the UK Gambling Commission, which should greatly reassure you as to the site’s reputability if you are a British-based gambler. It’s even more encouraging to see that there are also no recorded sanctions against the site by this highly respected body.

Bottom Line

Given that the company behind it is based in Malta and it isn’t exactly the most spectacular-looking sportsbook around, it’s perhaps understandable why so many Britons haven’t noticed Redbet down the years. However, in our experience, it’s also a very complete online betting portal, being unfussy-looking, easy to use and generous in its range of sports from which you can choose.

The downsides are relatively few, and include the absence of PayPal as a deposit method, as well as the lack of a dedicated mobile app or VIP scheme.

Register with Redbet today, and you’ll begin to appreciate a low-key, but very well-sorted place to have a flutter on the web
