32Red Casino was established in 2002 and is nearly as old as Casino Gazette. During the near 20 years that 32Red has been online and in existence, they have been the recipient of multiple awards, including the Casino of the Decade award from Casinomeister, which they won back in 2009.
32Red are based in Gibraltar where they are licensed by the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority and they also have a license from the Gambling Commission in the UK, allowing them to accepts players from within the UK.
This followed them receiving no less than 6 on the trot Casino of the Year Awards from Casinomeister. You could say that 32Red are therefore the online casino equivalent of Real Madrid, who pretty much do the same in the Champions League.
Setup by former Ladbrokes ‘Lifer’ Ed Ware. Ed literally took a gamble in 2001 and left his position of Managing Director of Ladbrokes International in Gibraltar, so he could lay the ground work which was to become 32Red.
In 2016 the Swedish based Kindred Group bought out 32Red plc the owners of 32Red Casino in a deal worth £196m and if anything this has seen the casino grow even stronger in the subsequent years. Whilst Ed is no longer with 32Red, his principles on how customers at an online casino should be treated, remain to this very day.
Game Selection at 32Red
32Red currently only features in the main games from Microgaming but this is expected to change in the near future as the wizards at Kindred look to roll out more software options for the casino. Currently numbering in excess of 500 casino games, 32Red still offers something for the discerning gambler. Particularly if you are a fan of video poker, then 32Red could be the casino for you.
However, 32Red’s live casino is powered by Evolution Gaming who in our considered view are currently the best provider of live casinos games online.
Due to their long history with Microgaming, there are several slot games which are exclusive to 32Red such as the I’m a Celebrity Slot, so again this is another feather in their cap as it were.
Once a new casino software company comes on board, then 32Red will also be in a position to compete with many of their rivals out there.
Banking and Support
32Red currently provides for support for 14 languages and 5 different currency options. There are a vast selection of deposit and withdrawal options available to new and existing players and the customer support is still very much first class.
One aspect of the casino that lets it down is the cashout time, added to the fact that 32Red operates a ‘Reverse Withdrawal’ facility. Which for those not as clued up as the more seasoned online casino player, means you can reverse your withdrawal any time within a 24 hour period from when you first requested a cashout.
This is a ‘facility’ that we actually frown upon on here at Casino Gazette and the fact 32Red employ it, means their marks have been downgraded accordingly.
32Red are always looking at ways to make available various promotions for new and existing players. For new players, their current offering is a 150% deposit match bonus, up to £150. Subject to applicable Terms and Conditions.
32Red for many years led the field in the online casino industry and whilst they may be slower actioning withdrawals than some of their competitors they are still a solid online casino to choose to play at. Once a new software provider comes on board to complement Microgaming, this will no doubt further enhance the reputation of 32Red.
