32Red Sports app review
You may know the 32Red brand already from their exceptional online casino offering, and now they have moved into the world of sports betting via their new website and the 32Red Sports app.
But is it any good? This review will let you know.
Incidentally, there has never been a better time to hop aboard the 32Red Sports bandwagon. New customers who sign up today are handed not only a 100% bonus on their first bet (any selection at odds of Evens or greater), but they will also be given ten free spins on one of the brand’s exciting slot games too, which at the time of writing is the fantastic Terminator 2. In the (sort of) words of Arnold Schwarzenegger….“you’ll be back!”
32Red Sports Review
The 32Red Sports app looks and feels superb, with the classic black-and-red colour way adding a classy touch that ensures all text is easy to read regardless of the light you are in. The layout and navigation are straightforward, with sports and markets clearly categorised and labelled. One item of disappointment is that there is no ‘quick links’ section taking the user straight to the most popular activities.
One of the biggest bugbears of mobile apps is that the ‘action points’, i.e. the buttons and tabs, are so small that they are almost impossible to touch accurately – causing plenty of frustration and time wasted.
This is a particular no-no when betting in-play of course. Fortunately, that’s not the case here, as chunky buttons are the order of the day. You can set your account to confirm your bets before placing in my account section if this is something you are worried about or avoid using the quick bet facility.
A final cautionary note: the page scrolls down to around 4x your screen length, which can be frustrating for users of devices with a touchscreen that lacks responsiveness. With most modern phones this is not an issue though.
There are more features that you can shake a stick at on the 32Red Sports app….although in truth most of them are readily available elsewhere. This is similar to most popular betting apps where they all offer a lot of similar features with the bet builders being the only main differentiator.
You can place your bets on thousands of markets covering hundreds of events each and every day; whether that’s an outright selection or if you’ve spotted something in play. You can even cash out your bets when things start to look a bit hairy. Live stats will keep you right up to date with the action and help you to make more informed betting decisions.
It is perhaps in horse racing that 32Red Sports stand out the most. They offer price boosts each and every day to help your kitty stretch further and enhanced place terms ensure you can get in the money even when your selection has a bad day at the office.
To find the day’s price boost head over to the racing tab and you’ll see the range of boosts for the day. There’s usually a selection to pick from but it’s always worth checking the form before betting as they are boosted for a reason – usually, because the bookie is happy to take them on at a higher price.
You can also double check the price on the Betfair Exchange app to make sure its higher than the standard exchange price too. It’s always sensible to check offers to make sure they are a decent offer and not just a flashy headline!
Unfortunately, there aren’t many promotions to speak of at 32Red Sports; either online or via the app. The fact they have listed Cash Out (a prerequisite rather than a luxury these days) as a promotion speaks volumes.
The 100% welcome promotion is a nice touch, and horse racing fans will enjoy the enhanced prices/places available, but that’s about your lot really.
32red are better known for the casino than sports betting so you won’t be surprised to hear they have an awesome casino app. It’s packed full of games, slots and even a full live casino and you can use your sports balance to play casino games straight from the app. You can read our full 32red casino review here.
All in all, this is a sound effort from 32Red Sports for their first app. If you’re looking for a handy application on your smartphone or tablet through which to place your bets on the football or the horses then you’ve come to the right place. This app is well thought-out, looks nice and is easy to navigate around.
But there is something lacking here – something that helps 32Red Sports stand out as a brand in their own right. It feels like they are happy to imitate, rather than create their own unique selling points.
And ultimately, that means we cannot recommend 32Red Sports app over the myriad of others that are available via the various app stores.
