As we’ve been seeing, the trend for most new bookmakers is to make sure that they complete a license to trade in the UK and one of the newer recruits in this respect is RedZoneSports. It’s great that they have signed up to widen our prospective list of sportsbook accounts but let’s see what else they have to offer.
The promos at RedZoneSports start with a potentially generous welcome deal which promises bonus funds up to £100.00. This is a 50% match on your opening credit and if you don’t want to make the full outlay of £200.00 it has a low entry level at just £20.00.
There is a rollover here at 7x deposit and bonus combined with minimum odds of Even Money during this 30 day wagering period but if you are a regular punter then this shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Look out for one-off deals around weekend football and the big sporting events by logging into your RedZoneSports account on a regular basis or by following our news feeds.
Sporting Markets and Odds Value
When you land on the RedZoneSports site then you may see graphics that indicate a bias for American Sports. While these are well catered for, the following is a list that will certainly appeal to most UK punters.
A big plus from that list is horse racing: It’s one of the UK’s favourite sports and some customers favour this option to the exclusion of all others so it’s naturally important that it’s here. All the remaining popular sports are here too and, if you like eSports plus some novelty and political bets thrown in, there is a small but growing set of these.
It’s early days in terms of RedZoneSports being included on any of the odds comparison sites but a random check of several options suggests that they will be very competitive all-round, particularly in those core sports of football and horse racing.
Anyone looking to fund their new RedZoneSports account can do so using either bank transfer or any of the major debit or credit cards. For UK players there should be an option there but while we’re used to Paypal being excluded from any list, it is rare to see Skrill and Neteller absent so hopefully this situation will change in the near future.
Things get back on track with a much wider set of help options and, with the possible absence of a telephone number, everything you would want is here. It kicks off with a live chat operator and a prominent speech icon will drop in whenever you are logged on to your account.
There is also a dedicated email address and while there is a list of FAQs, this is relatively short. Average response times are shown and this is a decent set of options for a new operator.
Even with a number of outlets closing their doors to UK players we still have plenty of choice so why should we look at adding RedZoneSports to what might already be a big set of accounts? Obviously the welcome offer with up to £100.00 is an eye-catching one but there is a rollover and that is really a clue as to who they are targeting.
If you are a regular bettor on any sport then you have choice in the set of markets which is an appealing one for the average British player. This is followed up by competitive odds in those markets so this is a good place to play if you’re looking for an excellent welcome deal backed up by consistent value week after week.
