You may know the 32Red brand already from their casino based tv advertising. You may not know them as a sports betting brand but they do have a solid betting app
But is it any good? We’ve checked out the 32Red sports app to find out.

You can find the 32Red app on the Google Play Store along with lots of other Android betting apps. It does not have as many downloads as a lot of other apps but does have a few positive reviews. The sports version was in the 1000-5000 downloads range at the time of writing, which is very low when compared to the 100,000-249,000 range of the casino app.
Upon our last round of testing the dedicated Android app found in the Play Store was unusable, similar to the iOS app found in the App Store. The service worked just fine though when accessing it from a mobile web browser, such as Google Chrome. The button above will take you straight there.
iPhone and iPad users can download the app from iTunes where it has less than favourable reviews. The dedicated sports app found in the app store seems to instantly freeze up upon opening. This makes it pretty useless! We found the service to be much more reliable using the 32Red mobile app (or mobile optimised web site).
We’d ideally recommend using your web browser to access the service. With major problems with the native app on iOS, there are other apps we would recommend using ahead of this one. You can see our current top rated iPhone betting apps here.
We think the 32Red sports app looks and feels superb. The classic black-and-red colourway adding a classy touch that ensures all text is easy to read regardless of the light you are in.
The layout and navigation are both straightforward, with sports and markets clearly categorised and labelled with icons. One item of disappointment is that there is no ‘quick links’ section taking us straight to the most popular activities.
For in-play betting, you can set your account to confirm your bets before placing in my account section.
There are more features than 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 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 a more informed choice. Head over to the match centre for a specific game to get the latest score and the stats view.
It is perhaps in horse racing that we found 32Red st00d out the most. They offer price boosts each and every day to help your kitty stretch further. They also have enhanced place terms to help you get a little more back from your each-way bets.
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. At the time of writing, there were 4 promotions on offer, one of which was cash out!
32Red Casino Review
This is where 32red is stronger, it does appear like they are a casino company who offer sports as well rather than a combined gambling company.
Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway
Who doesn’t love cheeky chappies Ant and Dec – well you’ll be pleased to know their Saturday Night Take Away slots game is exclusive to 32red. You may have seen the adverts for this around the time the show is on ITV. You will not find these games anywhere else!
As the show says “Don’t just watch the ads win the ads” and you can with this slot. It has a maximum of 40 lines and you get prizes for matching the ads, like the toothbrushes, or for matching pictures of Ant and Dec. Here’s a quick shot of the game (It’s played in landscape on your mobile or tablet).
If you want to have a play and see what the game is like then select the demo mode where you’ll get 100,000 credits to play with. You will need to register an account in order to play the demo versions. You can register one here to play.
Here are some other popular games on the app
- Mega Moolah
Want to win big? I mean really big!! Then the Mega Moolah is the slot for you. When writing this review the jackpot was over £15,000,000. This game is a progressive jackpot that is shared around between many casino companies around the world. At some point some will win the big prize but who knows where and when! There are lots of other prizes to be won while you play as well as the jackpot! There’s also a major, minor and mini progressive jackpot to be won too.
- Jurassic World
Continuing their branded theme the Jurassic World slot is a game built from the film franchise. As you expect it is all about lining up dinosaurs and the film characters to win the money. There are all kinds of win features and the fly in the amber goes wild in some instances. Find the Indominus Rex to open the game and increase your prize by up to 1000x your total bet – scary!
The ultimate classic table game is on the 32red casino app in a couple of forms. You can play standard computer blackjack in the Atlantic City game or you can go Live with the streaming table in the live casino. For us, the live casino is the best addition to casino apps in years, its a much better playing experience than staring at a computer-generated game while playing. Live casino is integrated into the same casino app, just head over to the live casino tab or select “Blackjack Lobby” from the popular games on the home page.
Other slots we like on 32red mobile
- Break Da Bank Again – 9 line slots in a classic style, collect the money and open the safe to break da bank!
- Who wants to be a Millionaire – Made by big-time gaming. Line up the millionaire logo to enter the big game and win the bigger prizes. Line up the numbers to win and watch the reels drop in more wins! (Similar to candy crush)
We love that users of the 32Red app – other than those using Blackberry – can access this app without having to install anything and we also like that the sign-up process is renowned for being one of the easiest of its kind.
The customer service is also known for being good, but we personally never needed to use it as the security protection is fantastic and the information provided is sufficient.
As well as a great range of slots on offer there’s a chance to win millions from a couple of quid with the progressive jackpots like Mega Moolah which can be over £2,100,000. From the home page tap to see the progressive jackpot games and you can pick the big money prize you want to go for.
The graphics are designed as HD graphics with the best graphics and sounds being advertised. If you’re on one of the latest smartphones you’ll really get a feel of the quality of the graphics on offer, these look awesome on the retina screen on an iPad too.
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. They also have dedicated apps that are crawling with bugs, making the only viable choice the mobile web app.
Ultimately, that means we cannot recommend 32Red Sports app over the myriad of others that are available via the various app stores. They can be fully trusted and have full, legal licensing. However they appear to be not the most reliable when creating a stable digital platform to bet from.
