BetRedKings Sportsbook Review
Founded in 2009, BetRedKings is a well established bookmaker that was created off of the success of RedKings Poker room and Casino, which appeared a few years earlier in 2006.
BetRedKings is operated and managed by EveryMatrix N.V., and powered by their subsidiary OddsMatrix, giving the bookmaker an incredibly strong platform.
BetRedKings is licenced and regulated by the government of Curacao, and their poker room is additionally licenced by government of Gibraltar.
The site operates in a variety of languages, seeking to attract players from across Europe. These include English, Icelandic, French, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish, Turkish and Russian. Despite BetRedKings attempts to attract players globally, it struggles to an extent as the site is restricted in the USA, Denmark, France, Turkey and, as of 2016, the UK.
The bookmaker also has a Casino and Poker room on top of their sportsbook, and these are still available to use in the UK as they operate on a separate licence to the sportsbook. The site clearly focuses on the lucrative Football market, leaving other markets far behind in terms of wagers and odds available.
They have an extremely limited presence across all social media with very few followers on Facebook and Twitter, and no posts at all in the last few years.
Supporting the OddsMatrix platform, BetRedKings offer a great range of markets with extremely competitive odds. There is a clear focus on Football, with tens of thousands of wagers available at any one moment, leaving other sports well behind.
The markets currently available include Football, Tennis, Ice Hockey, Basketball, Handball, American Football, AFL, Alpine Skiing, Athletics, Baseball, Biathlon, Chess, Cricket, Cross Country Skiing, Cycling, Darts, E-Sports, Fighting, Futsal, Gaelic Football, Golf, Motor Racing, Pesapallo, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Ski Jumping, Snooker, Specials, Table Tennis and Volleyball.
With over 30 sports available, including the ever-growing market for E-Sports, BetRedKings offer a very competitive and comprehensive choice when deciding upon a good bookmaker.
The live betting facility is presented in the same window as the sportsbook, which is unlike most other competitors on the market who separate the two. This at first gives the impression that there is little difference, and except for the visuals accompanying a live game, in reality there isn’t much difference.
Currently there is no live streaming or cash out available, and the statistics are only available through livescore.in, who direct you to live streams available on competitor sites.
Usability of the site
The site is relatively well designed and its red and white layout gives users a very sleek and comfortable experience. The site is easy and simple to navigate without too much information cluttering the page.
There is also a mobile app available which is just as enjoyable to use as the desktop counterpart, and players are rewarded with a 100% mobile welcome bonus of up to 30EUR.
There is a dedicated 24/7 customer support available and contact is made wither through their live chat facility, telephone or e-mail. They are quick to respond to any issues and aim to resolve any problems that may arise in a competent and professional manner.
There are a number of promotions available for players including a 50% welcome bonus up to 60EUR and a great loyalty programme for long-term players who can get up to 20% back from lost bets.
In terms of payment options players have a huge range of choices available, 38 methods in fact, and players are spoilt for choice.
BetRedKings offer a good service in terms of betting markets available, their website design, promotions and customer support. However, what is preventing this site from becoming a great choice is the somewhat out-dated live betting service, poor social media presence and restrictions in some major countries.
