32Red is one of the UK’s most established online casinos - dating all the way back to 2002 and listed on the London Stock Exchange since 2005. Along the way, they’ve managed to create one of the best online casinos with an even more outstanding 150% Welcome Bonus of up to £150.
Or as they prefer to call it, an incREDible bonus!
You should always read the full terms and conditions of every bonus offer you take up as although most follow a similar format, some may be slightly different.
Here are the most significant terms for 32Red’s Welcome Offer:
32Red have created a unique Fair Play bonus system which is player-friendly and utilises a Mixed Wagering calculation. Although it might sound complicated, it’s actually very straightforward and uses both cash and bonus funds when playing a game round - splitting the stake, payout and wagering accordingly.
It doesn’t stop once you’ve taken advantage of the 150% Welcome Offer - 32Red continues to offer equally generous promotions. Some are time-limited and you need to keep an eye on the promotions page or ensure you’re opted into receiving marketing emails or texts, but the regular offers include:
New Games Show - If you see a 50k or 100k sash while playing, click on it and opt in. You will then be able to spin to claim free spins.
My Red Rewards - Deposit bonuses, free spins and Super Spins are all on offer for depositing players.
Ruby Tuesday - Earn double points on selected games during selected hours when you opt in to this promotion.
Red Ruby Rewards - Earn Red Rubys while playing and redeem for casino chips.
32Red have won multiple industry awards in their 20 year history of operation, including Best Internet Casino, Best Player Experience and even Casino of the Decade.
High-profile sponsorships of Premiership and Championship football teams, sportsmen and women plus ITV2’s Celebrity Juice prove beyond doubt that 32Red have a rock solid reputation.
UK customers are protected and will be playing under the UK Gambling Commission licence, but 32Red also holds a licence issued by the Government of Gibraltar and are registered with the Irish Revenue Commissioner.
You’ll find a good selection of RNG table games at 32Red - classics such as European Blackjack and Auto Roulette from Microgaming. But what we find particularly interesting are the number of ‘live’ dealer table games which use pre-recorded video and RNG to determine the winning outcome. Switch Studios and Real Dealer appear to be the main providers of these games of which all are available in demo mode and well worth a try, even if only for fun money.
Slingo games are given their own category with over 40 titles including big name family brands such as Britain’s Got Talent, Deal or No Deal, Tipping Point and Who Wants To Be a Millionaire.
If scratchcards are your thing, you’ll find a small selection including Avalon from Microgaming and Stacker from Hacksaw Gaming.
Slots are the bread and butter money for all online casinos and this category will always offer the biggest choice as there are so many classics from the likes of Microgaming and NetEnt that will never go out of fashion. Meanwhile, hundreds of indie studios are all trying to develop the next Immortal Romance, Gonzo’s Quest or Starburst.
With over 1100 of the best slot games to play at 32Red Casino, you won’t be stuck for choice. Admittedly, it’s not the largest game inventory out there, but 32Red openly declares that it’s quality over quantity and we’d have to agree.
Jackpot slot players will be over the moon with nearly 60 titles on offer including the Mega Moolah series of games where life changing sums of 7 and 8 figures have been won:
You’ll also find a number of Jackpot King, Mega Jackpots, Hyper Hold and Mega Drop games - all with seriously juicy jackpots there for the taking.
Licensed online casinos are required to have their games audited and tested to ensure fairness. 32Red Casino have their games certified by eCOGRA - the leading testing laboratory.
The Return to Player (RTP) percentage is used to monitor that the game is performing to expectations - it’s the value a player can expect in return while playing. For example: a player starts a session with £10 and plays 100 spins at £0.10. If their balance at the end is £7.80 then their RTP is 78%. That means the casino hold is 22%.
Fear not! Most slot machines have an RTP in excess of 95% therefore the standard casino hold is just 5%.
Each game has its own RTP% which can often be found in the game settings and the casino will have an overall figure for all the games on offer, although they are not legally obliged to publish that.
RTP is modelled over the probability of all potential winning combinations which would take a very large data sample - a short session could result in an extremely favourable Return to Player figure well in excess of 100%!
The 32Red Live Casino lobby showcases 47 games of which most are provided by Evolution, the biggest provider that powers all the best live casinos online.
Interestingly, there is an Exclusive 32Red Live Dealer Roulette from a new live casino provider called OnAir Entertainment, which is actually very, very good. Exploration of the OnAir game lobby reveals a further 13 live dealer blackjack tables and 3 live dealer roulette tables. This hidden gem really needs more exposure.
There appears to be Pragmatic Play Live games available, too - Sweet Bonanza Candyland and One Blackjack, but neither were connecting on our multiple visits. Hopefully this is just a temporary issue.
As 32Red Casino has been around for so long, we’ve seen the remarkable progression it’s achieved in regards to user experience. There’s no doubt a 2002 version of 32Red would feel clunky and ancient in today’s market. Gone are the Flash games and lobbies, we are now into cross-platform HTML5 territory that runs effortlessly across all devices making it one of the best slot sites for the UK market.
The site is intuitively structured with Online Casino, Live Casino, Sports Betting and Blog main headers. Each click through offers a more granular view into its sub headers with My Account, Safer Gambling and Help Centre sections all permanently visible for easy access.
The games open in a wide screen frame for optimal viewing pleasure and most games are available in demo mode when logged in.
The search tool functions as expected with predictive text that narrows down the search results the more you type and refine your search.
The site is optimised for mobile with horizontal scrolling sections - this is to ensure continuity across all devices so the only difference between desktop and mobile experiences are the number of game tiles on view at any one time.
While 32Red Casino site is fully responsive and works perfectly well on mobile browsers, Android and iPhone users have native apps available to download which can offer an even more refined user experience.
The mobile casino UK and apps perform equally efficiently as their desktop counterparts with the look, feel and ease of navigation continuous across all devices.
There are numerous deposit methods available at 32Red Casino, all with no processing fees:
The minimum deposit is just £10 and withdrawals must be processed back to the method used for deposit. The minimum withdrawal is also £10 apart from wire transfers, for which the minimum is £100. Swift withdrawals below the minimum will still be processed, but a transaction fee of £5 will be applied.
Withdrawals will be processed within 24 hours.

Way back when 32Red Casino first launched in 2002, there were only a handful of software providers, of which Microgaming was the best casino software provider. Like most operators of that era, 32Red Casino had all their eggs in one basket and could only access Microgaming’s game inventory.
Now, with increased competition from so many aggregating platforms providing easy routes to market for new game providers, online casinos - or more so, their players - are spoiled for choice.
32Red Casino can now offer a much wider range of software providers including (but not limited to!):
The sign up process at 32Red is very straightforward and you’ll be up and running in no time - in fact, we’d say less than 1 minute:
Your account will be electronically verified at this stage - this is a check to ensure you are of legal age to gamble and is required by the UK Gambling Commission. If 32Red cannot verify your identity by searching publicly available records or by using an outside agency, you will be required to upload Proof of ID and address before continuing.
It’s always sensible to keep digital copies of your ID available for such instances.
So many online casinos fail to recognise the importance of giving players the opportunity to resolve issues themselves, without having to wait for an email response or queue for telephone or Live Chat.
Thankfully, 32Red provides a very comprehensive and easy to use self-help section. If this doesn’t resolve your query then live chat, webform, email and telephone support are available 24 hours a day - or even twitter for non-sensitive issues.
The support agents are all extremely professional with excellent communication skills.
The 32Red Casino VIP program is called Red Ruby Rewards - players earn Red Rubies which can be redeemed in units of 1,000 Red Rubies for 10 Casino Chips. Eligible Red Ruby Members will also receive a special birthday bonus.
As a long established operator, your safety and security is of utmost importance to 32Red Casino. The UKGC imposes conditions for licence holders which are mainly based around player protection. So you will not be surprised to see 32Red Casino has a very robust Responsible Gambling Policy in place.
You will be electronically verified upon registration. If this fails you will be required to provide documents before being able to deposit. Also at this point, you will be offered the chance to set a deposit limit.
The Responsible Gambling team at 32Red will monitor player spending and playing behaviour and sometimes players are asked to provide proof of source of funds. Although this may seem a little intrusive, it’s a regulatory requirement.
Safer Gambling tools and the Responsible Gambling Policy are clearly on display around the site - in the main menu, header, footer and in My Account. From here you can:
You will also find plenty of links to organisations such as GamCare and BeGambleAware that can offer emotional support as well as practical advice for problem gamblers.
32Red Casino may not have the biggest game catalogue around, but they do offer a great selection - the focus here is on quality and games that are no longer popular are removed to make space for what players actually want.
The Fair Play bonus system with mixed wagering is unique and should appeal to players who have previously avoided bonuses that may have been considered ‘too complicated’.
With such a solid reputation, great selection of games and providers, regular promotions and a Welcome Offer of 150% up to £150, we’d have to give 32Red Casino a big thumbs up.
