'American sports with a British twist' is RedZoneSports' selling point, and you're as likely to find massive markets on the Super Bowl and World Series as you are the Premier League or Wimbledon.
Boasting a dedication to US sports like baseball and American Football, Red Zone Sports is actually two websites in one. One (RedZoneSports.com) features in-depth analysis and features on the latest goings-on in US sport; the other, at www.redzonesports.bet, features markets and an in-play section geared up for tennis, football (the Soccer kind), and Baseball. If US sports are your thing, Red Zone Sports might be for you.
New customers at RedZoneSports can claim a welcome bonus of 50% up to £100. That means a £200 will get you £100 in bonus cash funds. To claim, the initial bet or bets must be of odds of 2.00, but the minimum stake has to be 7x your deposit amount – ouch.
- Easy site to use via desktop or mobile devices.
- Fast Live Chat available 12pm to 10pm every day.
- Minimum deposits of £5 allowed in the Cashier.
- No fees on all deposits and withdrawals.
- Big 7x wagering stipulation on welcome offer.
- Slow 5-hour response time for email support.
- Limited range of banking methods permitted.
Markets and Bets
‘American sports with a British twist’ is RedZoneSports’ selling point, and you’re as likely to find massive markets on the Super Bowl and World Series as you are the Premier League or Wimbledon. In terms of software the site is identical to SportNation.bet (the recently revamped Bet On Brazil), so expect easy-to-read upcoming markets, a quick betting slop, and the latest live betting events.
US sports like Baseball, Basketball, and American Football get top spot in the lobby, with bets available on CFL, NCAAF, and NFL plus Basketball outside the NBA like Australia, Greece, and even Brazilian U19s.
Regular sports punters can still find great 1X2 Full Time markets on leagues as far afield as England. Argentina, and Ecuador. When will sportsbetting sites learn to list ‘England’ as a separate country, though? Look out for intriguing ‘England Professional Development’ markets that include lots of U23 league games.
Live Betting is the big special feature at Red Zone Sports. There’s no Live Streaming, but there is a massive dedicated in-play gambling lobby that lists all live events coming up. You’ll find football (soccer), cricket, and tennis as standard, plus (of course) all the big college and pro US sports matches available to bet in-running.
If you’re keen on statistics, the Stats page has a huge range of figures and numbers on basketball across all leagues and cups plus the usual leagues and head-to-heads on major sports. Cash Out is available on many markets.
Promotions and Offers
Other than the deposit bonus upon sign-up, we struggled to find any other regular promotions running at Red Zone Sports.
Deposit Methods / Banking
There is a limited range of deposit/withdrawal options at Red Zone Sports. Major debit and credit cards are accepted only, so if you don’t have a VISA or MasterCard you may struggle. There are no fees, though, and the minimum deposits of £5 (£10 on the first one) are helpful. You can even set up daily deposit limits.
Live Chat is available at Red Zone Sports from 12pm each day, but the email support can be slow. There is no phone support at Red Zone Sports.
Live Chat: Yes (noon-10pm)
If American sports are your thing, there’s no doubt Red Zone Sports has it covered. But when major rival sites already cater to US sports it’s not enough of a selling point for Red Zone Sports. Where it falls down is in the sportsbooks nuts and bolts: poor promotions, limited deposit options, and slow customer support. Still, those sticking points aside, Red Zone Sports offers plenty of markets and bets to get your teeth into.
