RealDealBet Review

Fronted by the recognisable face of former boxer Evander Holyfield, RealDealBet are relatively new entrants into the sportsbook world but have made a lot of progress in a short space of time. They may have one of the highest profile brand ambassadors in the industry but when you look beyond that, there is a lot to catch your eye here.

Good value is here for the life of your account and it all starts with a healthy welcome offer.

RealDealBet Promotions

When you sign up for a new account at RealDealBet, you can get a 100% match on your opening credit and that can rise all the way up to £50.00 at its highest level. The terms are a little different to many welcome offers so please be sure to check them in full but essentially, you need to input the promo code RDB50 when making a deposit of at least £10.00.

Your qualifying bet must then be an accumulator with a minimum of three selections at combined odds of 2/5 or longer. The deposit and bonus must then be rolled over five times within 90 days at the same qualifying terms so there is a bit to work through but £50.00 is a generous sum in this market.

Regular promotions can be found too and you can usually expect to find acca boosts together with cashback offers which are specific to horse racing.

Sporting Markets and Odds Value

Here is the list of available sporting markets listed by RealDealBet in July 2017:

Football, Horse Racing, Basketball, Tennis, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, Baseball, Badminton, Boxing, Chess, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Gaelic Football, Golf, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motor Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Pool, Speedway, Surfing, Table Tennis, Trotting, Volleyball, Winter Sports.

While it appears to be a list that hasn’t been designed with one specific market in mind, it should certainly appeal to UK punters as horse racing has been included. That’s a good start and it sits alongside popular events and a good number of niches. Esports and specials from entertainment and political events are also included.

RealDealBet’s prices are strong too with good showings in football, tennis and other popular events so this is another strong area of the operation.


There’s a really good set of funding options on offer at RealDealBet and it’s good to see a relatively new bookmaker listing Paypal among its eWallets. Skrill and Neteller are also here so for those UK customers who like to access their accounts in this way, these are going to make things much easier.

Also on the list are PaySafe while you can use Bank Transfers in addition plus all the major debit cards. The bookmaker has dedicated links on their website for deposits and withdrawals and these list all the process times (most are instant) together with the minimum amounts involved.

Customer Service

RealDealBet list a comprehensive help section at the bottom left of their home page and this is laid out logically, including the banking section as we mentioned. General terms and conditions are also here but if you need any assistance above and beyond this, click on the contact button.

There is no live chat operator at present but there is an email and a phone number for the UK so this is quite a comprehensive section where responses have proved to be fast and effective.


RealDealBet may have an American former boxer as their figurehead but there is enough on offer here to make them appeal to UK customers. The welcome deal is a generous one although the qualifying terms need close attention and the value continues with ongoing promos and a great set of odds for most markets.

That list of markets is an extensive one too so this is clearly a bookie that is offering a good combination of choice and value – qualities that make them a worthy addition to your portfolio of betting sites.

Pros (+):

  • Welcome deal worth up to £50.00 as a 100% boost on opening deposit
  • Good choice of markets that will appeal to UK punters in particular
  • Excellent set of funding options including PayPal

Cons (-):

  • Hard to find any real negative points although some customers may prefer simpler qualifying terms and rollover on the welcome bonus.
