Redbet is one of the original online casinos, first opening its virtual doors in 2002. The property has been able to stick around for all of these years thanks to a hard-earned reputation for player-friendly terms and treating punters the right way. It started out in Sweden, but made a very successful jump to the United Kingdom some years ago.
Redbet is owned by Evoke Gaming Ltd., a popular Sweden-based casino operator that was acquired by Mr. Green (one of the biggest names in the UK online gaming business) in late 2017. Mr. Green and Redbet are a great fit, as they both consist of properties and owners that build their business by focusing on player value and positive experiences over cheap tricks and predatory offers.
Redbet has a full-fledged online casino (including live dealer tables) in addition to sports betting and poker. Today's post will break it all down and let you know if it's one to add to your gaming rotation.
Available Games and Software
Redbet not only has a large selection of games, but also has some very quick and responsive sorting options that are definitely better than the average online casino menu.
With about 840 slots, Redbet has pretty much all of the reels fans out there covered. The software lineup comes from five of the biggest names in the business: NetEnt, Scientific Gaming, Microgaming, Quickspin and Evolution Gaming. A nice drop-down filtering menu allows you to screen games for volatility, amount of paylines and bonus features. There do not appear to be any exclusive titles at the moment, but there are over 25 progressives including the mega-jackpots of Mega Moolah Isis, Major Millions and Hall of Gods.
Fancy sitting down at a virtual table? There are currently 37 standard options, or you can pop over to the live casino for another 48 options with actual dealers. All of the major table games are covered with multiple varieties, and the live casino brings you some online-only specialties like Monopoly Live, Football Studio and Dragon Tiger. One nice touch here is that you can see the minimum and maximum bets for each table before you even begin to load it up. The limits are also quite good here, with everything from 20 pence games for the casual player (or serious grinder) to being able to put hundreds of thousands of pounds on the next spin of the roulette wheel! There are even some options with progressive side bets, some of which get up into the millions of pounds: these include Casino Hold 'Em, Caribbean Stud Poker and roulette.
Video poker needs are covered pretty well with 16 options. If you want table poker, there is a separate client called Redbet Poker - browser play is also supported, but some features may be limited.
Finally, punters who like to lay down a sports bet then pop around to the casino while the game is on are taken care of here with lots of live in-play betting options.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Deposit terms here are clear, minimums are reasonable (£10 for all methods) and there are no fees if you're depositing in pounds sterling. Deposits from the supported e-wallets and prepaid cards (Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard) come through in under two minutes. Visa and Mastercard deposits are immediate. The only downside here is that while bank transfers are available to various European countries, they are not available to UK residents.
Withdrawals are also impressively quick here, sometimes coming through in as little as one day. There are no fees for any method, and the minimum withdrawal is always £20.
Safety and Security
Based in Malta, Redbet is licensed and overseen by the Malta Gaming Authority and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Since it originates in Sweden, the site is also licensed and overseen by that country's gaming authority (the Spelinspektionen).
Redbet also claims to have its games independently audited, but the website declines to specifically state which agency does so.
Bonuses and Player's Club
Redbet offers a choice of welcome bonuses that can be applied to the casino, the sports betting area or the poker room.
The casino offers a 100% initial deposit matching bonus, with a minimum of £20 to qualify and a maximum of £100. There is a wagering requirement of 35x the winnings, with a max bet of £2 at slots and £20 at table & live casino games. Pretty standard stuff. Also standard is that not all games contribute evenly to this requirement - just about all slots (save a list of about 25 visible at the Bonus Terms & Conditions page) contribute 100%, Dream Catcher contributes 50%, all the other live casino games contribute 10% and the standard table games contribute 5%.
Once you're in the doors and set up with an account, there are several ongoing promotions to check out. If you like the live casino tables, the "Live Beyond Live" promotion adds special bonuses to certain games on certain days of the week. For example, Tuesdays might bring a "double your money" bonus when you win five consecutive spins at roulette - check the Promotions page to see what's currently on offer.
Redbet is also currently promoting their Quickspin games in particular. Each Quickspin game has special "achievements" attached to it, a concept you may be familiar with if you've ever played video games on Xbox Live or Steam. Reaching these achievements rewards you with bonus tokens that can be used to immediately go into the game's bonus round!
Poker fans may also be interested in the £1 satellite tournaments that can win you a seat at an MPN Poker Tour live event.
Is Redbet Worth It?
Redbet is a very well-run and well-organized place to play. It can't be said that the promotions are anything remarkable, but there are some decent ones. The main appeal is simply in the experience, game selection and customer service. If you want a reliable and fun online casino with sports and poker options, this is one of the better choices out there.
