MRG launched Redbet in 2002 and it is now firmly established as one of the world’s most popular online betting sites. In 2018, the team relaunched the sportsbook after teaming up with award-winning provider Kambi for a new platform.
That ensured a significant improvement to the user experience and allowed the site to offer a much deeper coverage of world sport. It also unveiled a new horse racing section for UK and Irish markets and that has helped it grow its footprint among punters.
Stockholm-listed MRG Group also enjoyed success with its Mr Green brand and the firm was subject to a £245 million bid from British bookmaking giant William Hill in October 2018. The deal went through in January 2019. William Hill’s new online managing director, Patrick Jonker, took over as chief executive of the former MRG business, which includes Redbet and Mr Green.
Redbet is still run as a standalone site and many of the individuals responsible for its success still work there, but it now benefits from being a part of the larger William Hill business. Redbet is based in Malta and licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.
It covers all major sports and several niche ones too, while it also runs an online casino with more than 1,000 games, including live dealer options and poker.
Horse Racing Betting at Redbet
The horse racing page at Redbet is bright, clear and easy to navigate. It lists the next five races that are about to go off, and a menu at the top allows you to switch to a list of the day’s meetings or ante-post.
The ante-post section is divided into flat, National Hunt and American racing, with dedicated pages for the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National. Its ante-post coverage is strong, with odds on a number of big races that are not set to run for several months.
The meetings page lists all the venues hosting live racing that day along with the times of each race scheduled to run. Tap on any of them and it will bring up a detailed racecard.
It tells you the name and number of the horse, the jockey, the trainer, the age, the weight, its finishing position in its last six races, when it last ran, the current odds and the previous odds. You can switch between decimal, fractional and American odds. The top of the racecard also tells you the place terms.
A separate section allows you to easily compile forecasts and tricasts. If you tap on the odds next to a horse or the SP tab, it will be added to a betslip. It reminds you of the odds and the place terms, and allows you to insert your stake and decide whether or not you want to go each-way.
When you have done that it tells you the potential return you stand to make and allows you to place the bet. The whole process is very quick and straightforward, allowing you to rapidly get in on the action if a race is just about to start.
You can keep adding more selections to the betslip by tapping on them. When you do this, the betslip brings up a menu, allowing you to switch between singles, combination and system. The combination option is a straight accumulator featuring all the selections, whereas the system section allows you to create doubles, trebles, four-folds, patents, Yankees, Lucky 31 bets and so on. It always tells you the potential return you stand to make if successful.
Redbet has an excellent reputation for offering high-quality odds on horse racing. You will find prices that are among the most attractive in the business, and the place terms are typically generous.
There are also a number of international races to choose from, and it is easy to find popular betting markets on these events.
Football Betting at Redbet
You are presented with three options at the top of the football betting page: Live & Upcoming, Outrights and All Football. Tapping on the All Football option will take you through to a page that lists all the different leagues it covers, and it is seriously impressive.
It lists England first, then Italy, Spain, Germany and France, before going through all the other countries. Many bookmakers only cover the top division in a particular country, but Redbet goes really deep. If you want to bet on Spain’s Tercera Division 18, the under-20 A Junior League in Finland or Norway’s Regionsligaen avd. 6, Redbet has you covered. In England, it goes down to the National League.
If you click on a particular game, you will see a huge range of betting options at your disposal. Premier League matches often have more than 350 different bet types available.
You can choose from the classics like outright, both teams to score, total goals, correct score and half-time. It is really easy to compile a correct score bet, as you just click on how many goals you think each team will score and it tells you the odds.
There are a wealth of Asian lines to choose from, which is great for handicap bettors, and the goalscorer section is laid out in a really intelligent fashion. For each player, it tells you the odds on them scoring first, last, at any time on not at all. It is rare to see a bookmaker offer odds on a player not scoring, and it is a great extra option for punters.
You can find all manner of weird and wonderful betting options on a big game, like the away team to go a goal behind and win the game or home team to score first and win the match.
Tap on any selection and it is added to your betslip. It is quick, clear and easy to do. Adding multiple selections allows you to choose accumulators and other multiples. The betslip tells you the return you can expect if your bet is successful, and you can get your money on in just a couple of clicks.
The outrights section is very comprehensive and it features plenty of special options like whether a manager will still be in his job by the end of the season. The live betting section is also really strong. You will find more than 100 in-play markets on a big live game, including outrights, next goal, next corner, totals, cards, Asian markets, time intervals and more. A live graphic tells you what is happening in the game, while it also displays game stats.
The level of insight Redbet provides in its football previews really sets it apart from the competition. If you pick a random League One game between Oxford and Gillingham, you will find a dedicated page full of statistical data on the teams.
It tells you their head-to-head record, the average goals each team has scored per match against one another, their form, their home and away records, their recent match results, their next games, detailed player information about their top scorers and the players that have received the most cards, their league positions, how many clean sheets they have kept that season, how many goals they score per game and more. The level of detail is extremely high, and this information is really helpful before placing a bet. It is great to see this information on lower league games as well as the top flight.
