32Red sister sites 2023
32Red Sport, with the best will in the world, isn’t what it once was. The entire 32Red brand is a little smaller than it once was, which is a topic we’ll explore fully further down this page. There was a time when there were several 32Red-branded 32Red sister sites, and 32Red Sport was only one of them. There was also 32Red Bingo and 32Red Poker. The latter still exists to a degree, but it’s been absorbed by the larger 32Red site and now only exists as a single page, buried in a sub-menu. As for 32Red Bingo – it’s gone the way of the dinosaurs. When The Kindred Group bought 32Red (again, more on that later), the Group decided it didn’t want 32Red Bingo to compete with Unibet Bingo. Therefore, 32Red Bingo was discontinued, and its former website was redirected to Unibet. That’s the 32Red sister sites that no longer exist covered, so let’s talk about the one that’s still here.
32Red Sport no longer has a standalone website, but there is (somewhat confusingly) information about 32Red Sport at 32RedSport.com, with links taking you back to the 32Red Sport minisite within the larger 32Red website. There’s also a review of 32Red Sport at that URL, although you can make up your own mind about how objective that review could possibly be. As well as no longer having a standalone website, 32Red Sport no longer has any welcome promotions. In fact, it barely has any promotions whatsoever, save for those that you’d expect as par for the course from a major sport betting website. You can get boosted odds on some horse races, and you can cash out from fixtures while they’re still in play, but that’s about it.
With those things taken away, there isn’t really anything to 32Red Sport apart from its sportsbook. To view it as “just” a sportsbook doesn’t really do justice to the size of the sportsbook, though. You’ll likely find between fifty and one hundred betting opportunities “in play” no matter what time of day you visit the site, and every sport you can think of is covered in detail. That also goes for e-sports, which 32Red Sport likes to think of itself as something of a specialist in. That’s still as far as it goes for 32Red sister sites, though, unless you stretch the definition and include the other Kindred Group brands. Given that they technically belong to a different operating company, we haven’t done that here.

32Red operator – 32Red Limited
32Red Limited isn’t “really” the parent company of 32Red. It hasn’t been for several years. Yes, it’s true that 32Red technically exists as a separate legal entity with its own UK Gambling Commission licence (and that fine we mentioned earlier), but 32Red Limited is owned, in turn, by The Kindred Group. That’s one of the world’s largest iGaming companies. The company tends to keep out of the public eye, preferring its brands to do the talking, but it operates several major iGaming brand names from its base in Malta. 32Red is obviously one of them, but The Kindred Group also owns Unibet, Maria Casino, Bingo.com, and a few more. It was spawned from Unibet, so it could be said the history of 32Red’s operator stretches all the way back to the creation of Unibet from the bedroom of a flat in London in the late 1990s.
Unibet was content to operate in isolation until 2007 when it bought Maria Casino and Bingo.com. By that time, the company already had over 300,000 customers worldwide and had been listed on various stock exchanges. As the company decided upon acquisition as a growth strategy, the dominoes began to fall. Betchoice, Stan James, 32Red and plenty of others all four offers on the table from Unibet that they couldn’t refuse, and so they joined its banner. By December 2016, “The Unibet Group” was no longer an accurate description of the company, and so it became The Kindred Group. As a juggernaut of global gambling, The Kindred Group, in its current incarnation, can count upon the services of more than 2300 employees based in offices around the globe (but mostly in Europe) and brings in something like £750m per year in revenue.
32Red Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
The 32Red welcome promotion is promoted extensively on the casino’s homepage, with a little help from the omnipresent Keith Lemon, who’s the brand’s celebrity ambassador as of the time of writing. You’ll no doubt have seen him promoting the company on television and social media. The offer is a 150% matched deposit promotion, with a minimum deposit of £10 and a maximum cap of £150. Players have only seven days to use their bonus after they’ve been awarded it, and there’s some confusion about the wagering requirement. It says x50 on the 32Red homepage, but we’ve seen x30 on other pages of the site. If it’s x30, it’s fine. If it’s x50, it’s too high. It’s not great that 32Red can’t keep its story straight on the matter, though.
There’s a player loyalty reward scheme at 32Red, and it goes by the name of Red Ruby Rewards. In basic terms, players accumulate rubies every time they deposit and play games. There’s a standard exchange rate in place of ten casino chips for every one thousand Red Rubies a player has, and Rubies can only be traded in for casino chips (or other rewards) in units of one thousand. It’s far from clear how many pounds in deposits are required to earn a ruby, but we get the impression that it may vary depending on what you spend your deposits on. Some betting and gambling activities might yield more rubies than others. All Ruby Rewards are subject to a wagering requirement of x30. It sounds like it might be rewarding, but it’s also a little convoluted. You can rack up rubies faster by taking part in “Ruby Tuesday,” where selected slots pay out extra rubies every Tuesday.
32Red also has other promotions and bonuses to offer. The “My Red Rewards” scheme offers a different small bonus or perk every day, there are prize draws, and there are also seasonal or short-term promotions. Promotions tend to come and go fairly regularly at 32Red, so it’s always worth checking the promotions page to find out what’s new if you haven’t been back to the site for a while.
Top Games at 32Red
The top games selection at 32Red is dynamic. When new games get added, they’re placed in the “featured” section of the homepage for a while. That means the section looks different at the time we’re writing this than it will at the time you’re reading it. There’s also preferential treatment given to games that are exclusive to 32Red (or even that 32Red came up with in-house), so you can expect to see the 32Red Roulette game on this part of the homepage no matter when you load it. Some slots appear to hang around for longer than others, though – 9 Pots of Gold by Gameburger Studios is still a featured game at 32Red even though it’s been around for a whole (and is a mere reskin of 9 Masks of Fire, which is also available at the casino). Gold Blitz by Fortune Factory Studios is showing staying power, too. It’s a slot that belies its classic-looking appearance by being absolutely stuffed to the brim with bonuses – which also means that it’s as volatile as they come.
Customer Support and Licensing
At 32Red, seeking assistance can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. The support system is comprehensive, but it’s needlessly hard to find. You’re required to dig through the FAQ section before you’re shown the relevant options, and you’ll have to pick a topic first before they eventually show up. When they do, you’ll see there’s live chat, telephone support between 8am and midnight on freephone 0808 180 3232, and an email support form. While the support options are extensive, it’s frustrating to have to jump through hoops to find them.
32Red sister sites are operated by 32Red Limited, which holds UK Gambling Commission licence 39430. We’re sorry to say that it isn’t a clean licence. In January 2023, the company was hit with a massive fine of £4.2m after violating multiple anti-money laundering, customer interaction, and social responsibility licence conditions. In response to these breaches, the UK Gambling Commission also imposed additional licence conditions and issued a formal warning to 32Red Limited. While this incident is the only one on record for the company, it’s to be hoped that it’s the only one it ever gets – when it happened, it made mainstream news headlines.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
You’ll find everything you need to know about withdrawing your winnings on the 32Red banking page. While it’s true that there aren’t as many options here as there are at other top online casinos, the ones that are available are quite quick. If you’re using a debit card, there’s a short 24-hour delay before your withdrawal request is processed, but if you’re withdrawing via an e-wallet like PayPal, you could have your funds in hand within 12 hours. It’s worth noting that PayPal is currently the only e-wallet supported by 32Red Sport, so that might be a problem for those who like the convenience of e-wallets but aren’t fans of PayPal. If you prefer, you can also request a bank transfer, but be prepared to wait up to 72 hours for your funds to arrive. Overall, while the options may be somewhat limited, 32Red does offer fast and reliable withdrawals.
Final Thoughts on 32Red
Very few casino sites in the UK have a larger media presence than 32Red, so the casino is likely to remain popular no matter how good or bad it is. For what it’s worth, we think it’s pretty good. The number of games available at the site is in excess of one thousand and includes all the modern live dealer and game show games. We’d like to be a little clearer about aspects of the promotions that the casino offers, but at least there’s a mechanism in place to reward players for their loyalty. As customer support is comprehensive and payouts are fast, 32Red is way better than your average UK-facing casino site.
32Red Sister Sites Player Reviews
Here are the thoughts of your fellow players about 32Red. The reviews are all real, but we’ve paraphrased them to keep them brief.
32Red is a massive rip-off. It swallows your money, and you never get anything worthwhile back from it. You always get loads of bonuses in the demos but never in the real games. Ali, April 6th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
I signed up here as a new customer and made a £10 deposit to get the welcome bonus. I didn’t get it. I rang customer support, and they said someone who lived at my address before me had registered, so I couldn’t have the bonus? How does that make sense? Pockaii, April 4th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
32Red is a deplorable casino. I hadn’t logged in since they got rid of the bingo, but I tried to log back in today, and my account has been restricted to one penny per bet. They’ve never done an affordability check on it; it’s ridiculous. When I asked about it on live chat, I found them really condescending.Kerry, April 3rd 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
32Red doesn’t do the checks it’s supposed to do. My dad is GamStop registered but 32Red let him make an account and play. Absolutely disgusting behaviour.Sal, April 3rd 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
Playing at 32Red is basically daylight robbery. I didn’t get a single bonus round from 450 spins in Wild Link Frenzy, so I moved on to Thunderstruck II and finally got a bonus round, which paid me £1.20. In total, I lost £90. Avoid the company; it obviously has no respect for its customers.John, April 1st 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
