Going live as a licenced UK operator in 2017, RedZoneSports is now flying the flag for US sports in the UK. Despite branding itself as the British home of American sports, there’s a lot more to this site than red, white and blue stripes. In this RedZoneSports review, we’ve picked out its top features, including the fast bet system, and analysed some areas where it could improve to help you decide if this is the best platform for you.

Safety and Trustworthiness

Having previously been operational globally except the UK, RedZoneSports is now a part of the British betting scene after completing the necessary steps to get a UK gambling commission licence. On top of this, the company is registered with the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS), ensuring you get a fair service in the event of a dispute. With the seal of approval from these two betting organisations, we are confident in deeming RedZoneSports a trustworthy betting site for UK customers.

Satisfying the regulators is one thing, but convincing the community that you’re a good place to bet is another. Even though the UKGC demands operators have certain security features in place, such as SSL, segregated accounts for player funds and ID checks (all of which RedZoneSports has), service is also important. In our research we found that punters who used RedZone were, by and large, happy with the site. One customer at OLBG praised the selection of odds at RedZoneSports but did suggest that the bonus conditions were a little harsh. Another issue some reviewers seemed to have was the time-restricted support service. Unlike many of the major sports betting sites that offer 24/7 customer support, RedZoneSports live chat team are only online  12pm to  10pm Monday to Sunday.

Overall, we didn’t find any major issues with RedZoneSports. Yes, it’s only been active since 2017, which means there hasn’t been much time for it to experience any catastrophic incidents. New betting sites often experience teething troubles, but it seems RedZoneSports is building up a fanbase without any major issues.

Deposits & Withdrawals

Moving your money into and out of RedZoneSports is simple, if not a little restrictive. When you join one of the more established online betting sites, such as Betfair or Betway, you’ll get to choose between a variety of card, eWallet and pre-paid card payment methods. At RedZoneSports, the only option you’ll have is a credit or debit card.  Offering one type of payment option is poor given that almost every major site in the UK has multiple methods available. Still, payment options on new betting sites normally get ramped up over the first year so we expect to see a longer list of options by the end of ’18

Mobile

RedZoneSports doesn’t currently offer a mobile betting app which is disappointing, but you can still bet on the move thanks to RedZoneSports’ mobile optimised desktop site. By engineering the software to scale down and work on any mobile, the team at RedZoneSports has made their product truly flexible. It doesn’t matter what type of mobile you own, RedZoneSports will work. You’ll get access to the same selection of betting markets, deposit options and promotions you’d find on the desktop site. So, even though an app would be nice, it’s not the end of the world in this situation.

Bet Offers

New punters can get a matched deposit bonus offer of up to £200 when by signing-up and entering the bonus code: RZ200. Based on a 40% multiplier, this welcome reward is more like a traditional online casino bonus than the more common free bets bonus. For example, if you joined Betway Sports using our sign-up link, you’d get £30 free when you deposited and wagered £10. Similarly, at Bwin, you’ll get a £10 rebate as a new customer if your initial bet loses. Essentially, sports betting bonuses usually follow the “you wager £XX and you’ll receive £YY in return” format. However, at RedZoneSports, all you have to do is make a deposit. What’s more, the size of your prize is based on a multiplier which, again, is something you’ll find in the online casino sector.

In terms of the wagering conditions, you’ll have to deposit at least £20 to activate the bonus. Once you’ve received your funds, the play-through is 7X the deposit and bonus amount. Additionally, all bets made must have minimum odds of 2.00 (1/1). Assuming you can hit the wagering target within 30 days, you can withdraw any bonus funds and winnings you’ve got in your account.

Because RedZone Sports’ welcome bonus is set-up a little differently to the norm, it’s hard to compare like for like. However, what we will say is that 7X is somewhere in the middle when it comes to easeof clearing. It’s not low, but neither is it so high that you’re going to go bust trying to hit it. In our opinion, this deal will suite high rollers because you get a lot in return for your deposit but you will have to commit some time and money to clearing it.

Betting Markets And Odds Quality

RedZoneSports brands itself as the British home of American sports betting. With this in mind, it’s hardly surprising that US sports dominate the lobby. From American football and basketball to US horseracing, baseball and every major sporting event taking place in America, RedZoneSports has it all. Of course, being a licensed operator in the UK means that other sports are also available. Football (known as soccer across the site) is obviously a big player in the market as is horse racing. Beyond these staples, niche sports such as snooker and pool are backed by markets covering floorball, trotting, UFC and eSports. Overall, the spread inside RedZoneSports is impressive. In fact, with 41 different options to choose from, you’ll get more choice here than you will at many of the bigger brands, including BetStars.

What’s also impressive about the roster of options at RedZoneSports is the price boosts. Along with a cashout option that allows you to call time on a bet early and receive a payout, the daily odds boosts help you get more for your money. Unsurprisingly, many of the best boosts are applied to American sports. However, you will find that soccer is often up there as a main focus for the oddsmakers. Yes, many top operators do have their own boosts, but one thing we noticed about RedZoneSports was the number of daily options. During our RedZoneSports review, golf alone had 14 boosts which, for us, is impressive. So, if you’re looking for better prices than the average online betting site, RedZoneSports is certainly up there with the best of them when it comes to options.

In-Play Betting

Like all the best online sports betting sites in the UK, RedZoneSports offers in-play betting. Covering not only the major sports but those that often get overlooked, the odds makers are constantly working to bring you live prices at the touch of a button. In fact, the thing we really liked about this platform’s in-play betting provisions was the “fast bet” option. Alongside visual representations of the action and live stats, you can use the fast bet markets to compete your transaction in three clicks. Put simply, when you see a lightning bolt symbol next to some odds, it means you can make three moves to confirm your pick:

  1. Click the price.
  2. Set the number of bets (i.e. one bet is equal to a £1 stake).
  3. Click “place bets”.

Because you don’t have to worry about typing in the size of your stake, the process literally takes no more than five seconds. In a world were seconds count, that’s impressive and, for us, one of the reasons the in-play lobby at RedZoneSports stands out.

Support

Ssome customers have taken issue with the site’s customer service policies. Instead of a 24/7 service, you’ll typically wait 48 hours for an email (help@redzonesports.bet) reply or you’ll have to contact a live support agent between 12pm and 10pm. Although there is help available, it may not always be there when you need it another thing for RedZoneSports to work on.

Review Summary

As a newbie to the online sports betting world, RedZoneSports has found a way to carve out a niche in an otherwise crowded market. Fans of US sports will obviously find a home here but there’s a lot more on offer than that. The roster of betting markets is extensive and the fast bet provisions make everything quicker and slicker. There are some big shortcomings at Red Zone Sports – lack on an app and depositing options being the main ones –  but that’s to be expected from a site that only launched in 2017. RedZoneSports has lots of potential and in time could make its way into the tier B betting sites alongside 10Bet and 888Sport. For the time being we’re giving it 7/10, but we’ll be watching it closely to see how the brand progresses.
