32Red is among the premier online betting providers in the United Kingdom. The bookmaker offers a host of betting products, including a Sportsbook, Casino, Live Casino, Poker, Bingo, and esports. In addition, 32Red signed a sponsorship deal with Derby County and Middlesbrough in 2018 and has sponsored the Arena Racing Company All Weather Championships since 2014.

There is no doubting 32Red’s credentials – the purpose of this review is to gauge the betting site’s various features and to determine whether the betting site ticks all the right boxes for our readers.

Sportsbook Promotions
2.5 / 5

  • Currently just a solitary sports-based promotional offer
  • Certain terms and conditions apply

 

32Red Sportsbook Promotions

 

 

The lack of promotions at the time of writing this review (05/2020) may be because of the Coronavirus pandemic, which has effectively brought almost all sporting events around the world to a halt.

32Red offers Daily Horse Racing Price Boosts. The United Kingdom and Ireland Horse Races with an associated ‘*’ symbol come with the best prices in the industry.

VIP Program

While 32Red offers a wonderful Casino VIP Program, there is no VIP Program as yet for its Sportsbook customers. We hope that the betting site provides provisions for its sports fans in the near future.

 

Pre-Match Offer
5 / 5

  • High quality odds on over 25 sports
  • Active sports betting markets
  • Minimum stake is 0.01 GBP
  • Maximum stake varies from sport to sport

 

32Red Pre Match Offer screenshot

 

Players can bet on popular sports-based betting markets, including the likes of Football, Horse Racing, and Tennis. You can also punt on less popular markets such as  Darts, Surfing and Snooker.

The minimum stake that you can place on a sports-based betting market at 32Red stands at 0.01 GBP. The maximum stake varies from sport to sport, and depends on the number of selections that you make and the odds that you back.

You should make it a point to gauge the odds on offer at several betting sites before placing a bet in order to find the best odds possible and, in this way, reap a generous profit. This will also help you determine the players/teams that the bookmaker favours – a player/team with a lower quality of associated odds is more likely to win a match.

We also recommend that you determine the margin of profit that a betting site is charging. The lower the bookmaker’s margin is, the better. Avoid placing bets on betting variants with a margin that touches or exceeds the 110% mark. You can calculate the margin by determining the Odds Overround for a betting variant in question.

To determine the Odds Overround, convert its fractional outcomes into the decimal form. Divide each outcome by 100 and add the resulting numbers. You can determine the Odds Overround from the result.

To help you better understand these two concepts, we calculated the Odds Overround for a match to be contested between Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04 in the German Bundesliga. The Odds Overround were found to be 106.30, which indicates that 32Red offers active sports betting markets coupled with a good quality of odds.

Esports

Given the fact that esports betting has picked up pace as of late, it is of no real surprise that the best online betting providers in the business offer odds on the latest and biggest esports tournaments – and 32Red is no exception. Interested players can bet on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Overwatch-based tournaments.

To boost your chances of winning at esports, you should always analyse official statistics such as esports rankings, team form guides, past tournament results, key statistics and past match results before placing a bet.

Like sportsbook bets, the minimum stake that you can place on an esports-based betting market at 32Red stands at 0.01 GBP. The maximum stake varies from esport to esport and depends on the number of selections that you make and the odds that you back.

Other Specials

32Redoffers odds on Politics, TV and novelty betting markets.

When it comes to betting on politics,32Red is currently (05/2020) offering odds on the US Presidential Election 2020, US Senate Elections 2020, Brazilian Presidential Elections 2022 and the Next UK General Election, among other markets.

When it comes to betting on TV & Novelty, 32Red is offering odds on Britain’s Got Talent 2020 and Next James Bond after Daniel Craig.

Like sports and esports markets, the minimum stake that you can place on a Special market at 32Red stands at 0.01 GBP. The maximum stake varies from Special to Special and depends on the number of selections that you make and the odds that you back.

Cash Out and Bet Builder

Presently, 32Red offers both Cash Out and Bet Builder.

Cash Out allows bettors to retrieve their winnings on a placed bet before the conclusion of a match. Generally, punters Cash Out when they feel that they may lose a placed bet, or when they have obtained a significant profit off a placed bet before the conclusion of a match.

Either way, you could go on to win more or less than your initially placed bet. The amount that you retrieve via a Cash Out depends on the odds in favour of your placed bet at the time of initiating a Cash Out and the exact instance.

Bet Builder allows you to create a unique bet of your choice by combining up to 12 outcomes into a single bet.

ThePuntersPage Final Say

Having gone over each of 32Red’s various offerings in detail, we have come to a resounding conclusion: 32Red is among the best betting providers in the United Kingdom, and a very worthwhile choice. While 32Red does have a few cons which need ironing out, its pros more than compensate for any deficiencies.

Let’s have a look at the cons:

  • A limited amount of sports-based promotional offers (though again, this could be due to the current COVID-19 pandemic)
  • No Sportsbook VIP Program
  • A slightly complicated customer support system

With that, let’s venture into the betting site’s pros:

  • A secure registration process, complete with identity verification
  • Several payment options
  • A generous welcome offer
  • Over 25 sporting disciplines to punt on
  • An excellent live betting arena
  • Secure and transparent software
  • A vast and comprehensive responsible gaming section
  • A great Sportsbook app
  • A superb selection of Casino Games and a fantastic Casino welcome offer
  • A Casino VIP Program

To add to the above-mentioned pros, 32Red’s dedicated blog and in-depth sports statistics bank makes it not only a force to contend with, but also places it among the best online betting platforms in the United Kingdom.
