While 32Red may be best known for their online casino rather than their sports betting facilities, a new marketing drive and growing numbers of players have seen the company focus heavily on promoting their sportsbook, and it’s managed to become one of the more successful bookies despite it’s relatively short life so far.
While the market selection isn’t anywhere near as big as you’d perhaps find at some other sites, the games 32Red do offer are all hand-picked by the management team, which ensures that you’re not faced with a bunch of low-quality, boring events that are just there to make up numbers. You would never actually bet on them anyway but they still clog up the interface when you’re trying to find the games that you do want to bet on.

Cash in Your Bets
Like almost all online bookmakers 32Red offer the ability to cash out your bets, helping to hedge your risk and take a quick profit when you don’t feel like the event is going to finish in your favour.
In order to determine if one of your bets is eligible for a cash out, you simply need to head to your account area and view your open bets. Once there, any applicable bets will have a cash out button beneath the total returns text, and a cash out button displays the current cash out amount that you may claim if you choose that option.
To cash out your bet, click this button, confirm, and you will see your winnings automatically credited to your balance. There are no restrictions on this, it’s added to your account as cold hard cash, meaning there are no wagering requirements attached; so you can withdraw it straight away if you wish no questions asked. Of course, you can also wager it on other bets or take it to the online casino – the choice is yours.
One thing that is worth noting, is that not every market is eligible for cash out, and you won’t see it offered on some of the site’s smaller events. For full details about the cash out function, including some of the excluded markets, head to the main promotional page where you will see a tab on the left-hand side navigation menu called ‘Cash in Your Bets’.
Perhaps the reason 32Red is so well-known in the online gambling industry is their online casino. It is slick, versatile, and generous; and boasts a collection of over 500 games so it’s suited for almost all types of gambler.
Powered by Microgaming software, you can be certain that the games are fair and are not rigged in any way. Microgaming are one of the biggest names in online gambling, and are responsible for pioneering some features which are now commonplace, such as the 243 ways to win format on video slots, as well as the progressive jackpot pooled games. Online gambling fans have a lot to thank them for.
A number of gaming categories can be found at 32Red, including Video Poker, Video Slots, Casino Table games, and even a Live Dealer Casino which allows you to enjoy certain casino table games in front of a live dealer, fed to you via video link.
You can see all of these options from the ‘Online Casino’ and ‘Live Casino’ links on the top most navigation menu which is found on every page of the site.
The 32Red Website
While the number of markets available at 32Red is significantly smaller than most other online bookmakers, one of the things the site does have going for it is the way it is designed. In fact, it is developed differently to almost every other site out there, with a minimalistic and simple home page giving you easy access to a number of the sites betting options and features.
Easy Navigation Menus
32Red offer a beautifully designed navigation menu, and from the sportsbook homepage you’ll see an event overview which gives you information on upcoming events, as well as showcasing a few of the favourites. Alongside each of the events, you’ll see a couple of the most popular betting options – which are usually based on what other punters are betting on most frequently – and you’ll also see a selection of what are known as Quick Links, which allow you to view the event in full.
For example, if there was a match between Manchester United and Manchester City, you would see the price for Manchester United winning, the price for a draw, and the price for Manchester City winning; there would also be a link titled ‘View All Bets’ or something similar which allows you to view all bet-options for that specific event.
Another feature we really like is the navigation menu itself, which is coloured black and displayed at the top of almost all of the site’s pages. This menu allows you to access a number of markets directly, including Football, Golf, Tennis, Horse Racing, Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Darts, and Snooker. There’s also an ‘All’ tab, which as you have probably guessed gives you a complete overview of all the events currently available.
Open up the left most navigation menu and you’ll see the ‘Starting Soon’ tab. This is a quick overview of some of the markets and events that are about to begin, but what we really like about 32Red’s version (most sites have a similar function), is that every hour there are four or five highlighted events. This means you can browse through the rest of the day’s events and get a good idea of what the most popular bets/markets are. The bookie has made it incredibly easy to place bets on these events, with odds positioned alongside the events allowing you to quickly add them to your bet slip.
32Red offer a small yet well considered range of deposit methods, and you’ll be able to use Visa and Mastercard Debit/Credit cards, along with PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Entropay; and if you’re in the United Kingdom, both bank transfers and cheques are an option too, although the minimum deposits/withdrawals are significantly higher for these two options.
All other methods offer a set £10 minimum deposit and a £10 minimum withdrawal, ensuring you’re not too limited in how much you can add/withdraw to/from your account. Plus, all deposits are processed instantly with the funds visible in your account almost right away.
Withdrawals can take up to 48 hours to process, but this is usually a lot quicker, and so long as your account is fully verified (which means you’ve uploaded your proof of identity and proof of address) you can expect the majority of your withdrawal requests to be processed in around 8-12 hours.
The limit on withdrawals isn’t obvious, although it looks as though they operate the industry standard withdrawal cap of £50,000 a day.
