Mobile app for Android
RedZoneSports is among a number of bookies that are yet to develop any downloadable android betting apps. This is despite the apparent mobile gaming wave that has seen players worldwide switch to using their mobile devices for their regular sports betting or casino gaming. As such, you will not have to go through the hustle of searching for any such apps on Google Playstore or any .apk files for installations. In place of such downloadable android app, RedZoneSports gives their clientele mobile gaming services through the use of a browser-based mobile website. Later on in this article, we will be reviewing this alternative option in more detail, including details of how to access the mobile site platform.
How to download RedZone Sports app for iOS?
Usually, an android mobile betting platform will have its iOS counterpart. This is only logical, bearing in mind these are the two main operating systems in today’s mobile telephony industry. RedZone Sports provide its customers with a dedicated app for iOS devices. In order to download the app on your iPhone/iPad, follow these steps:
- Open the App Store from your iOS device.
- Search for RedZone Sports and you will see the app, developed by Argyll Entertainment AG.
- Click on the button to get the app.
How to install the iOS app of RedZone Sports?
Once you find the app on the App Store of your iOS device, follow these steps:
- Click on the button to get the app.
- The installation process will begin automatically.
- When it finishes, the app will be installed on your device, and you will be able to load it.
Red Zone Sports Mobile website
Accessing RedZoneSports on any mobile device is possible through their mobile site version. The mobile website is basically like a mirror of the desktop site, in that it offers the same type of services and products, albeit on a smaller screen of a mobile phone or tablet. Accessing the RedZoneSports mobile site is very easy since you will use the same URL as that of the desktop site.
Start by opening your usual mobile browser. On the search bar, type in the URL of the site and enter. The website will open and automatically switch to the mobile viewing mode. This is made possible by the mobile optimization technology used, which allows the website to communicate with your device, and automatically switch the interface to suit the screen’s size thus offer a suitable browsing experience.
The mobile site homepage features a ‘Login/Join Now’ button at the top-right corner. You can use this button to either access your old account on RedZoneSports or create a new account if you have never played on the platform before. For navigational purposes, you will have a menu icon on the top-left side. You can also resort to using the alternative scrollable menu bar at the top of the page. From this menu bar, you will have the shortcuts to accessing the Sportsbook, In-Play markets, Casino, Live Casino, Virtuals and even the Promotions pages. One thing you will notice with the mobile site is that their sportsbook section gets much more attention than the casino games. This is because the mid-section is populated with top sports bets you can place for the day, unlike other gaming platforms which usually push their casino content on this section.
Notable Mobile Features
By playing from this browser-based platform, will I be missing out on any of the trendy mobile betting features? This is a question often posed by players when faced with a gaming platform that lacks downloadable apps such as the Android app of RedZoneSports. To effectively answer this question, our review focused on some of the most sought after mobile betting features as analyzed below. They are available on the mobile version and the iOS app as well.
Live betting is an interesting feature that allows you to explore markets on matches that have already started. The beauty with this feature is that you will have the chance to review how a game is playing out before making your bet. From the RedZoneSports mobile site menu bar, you will see a tab highlighted as ‘In-Play’. This tab will grant you access to a wide array of live betting markets, covering soccer, tennis, basketball, cricket and plenty of other sports.
This is another notable feature that will be at your disposal while playing on the RedZoneSports mobile site. With this feature, you will be able to withdraw from a bet and recoup a portion of your stake, rather than watching your bet burn. You will be able to find the cash-out option for your bets in your bet slip, which will appear a small bubble at the bottom of your screen when you start placing bets.
This feature is closely related to the live betting feature in that it involves manipulating the betting markets on live matches. The main difference is that the Fast Markets feature currently available for live football matches only and not any other sport. With this feature, you will be able to predict something to happen within a span of between 1 and 5 minutes. Fast Markets will involve betting on goals being scored, corners, cards issued, penalties, throw-ins, free kicks and even goal kicks being awarded within a specified duration of time. This is an exciting feature with incredibly priced odds that can see you earn some very fast payouts.
Available betting options through the mobile
Thus far, you can already tell RedZoneSports is quite big on sports betting. But what other gaming options will be available from this mobile site? In this next section, we have provided a detailed guide of the betting markets available for you from the RedZoneSports mobile site.
The mobile site platform gives you access to the complete RedZoneSports sportsbook. This is a very detailed sports betting platform that features over 30 betting categories. These categories cover sports such as soccer, American Football, tennis, basketball, horse racing, greyhounds, bandy, cycling, Gaelic Football, speedway, table tennis, snooker and a variety of winter sports. In addition to these, you will also have the chance to bet on non-sport markets, including upcoming elections and reality TV shows such as Dancing on Ice.
The sportsbook also features another innovative category dubbed Enhanced Odds. In this section, you will find a list of selected markets whose odds have been enhanced above average market prices.
Even though RedZoneSports tends to promote their sportsbook much more, they also operate a mobile casino accessible through the mobile site. The RedZone Casino is home to over 300 casino games, the majority of which are video slots. Other types of games available here are a variety of video poker, roulette, blackjack and poker. In terms of graphics, the casino games offered here are of impeccable quality. Also, you will find it easy navigating through the casino since there are filters for you to sort the games into different categories.
The mobile site also gives you access to the RedZone Live casino where you can sample a bunch of live dealers casino games. In comparison to some other leading betting sites, this live casino is relatively smaller, with only 13 games being offered. Some games available here include live roulette, live blackjack, lightning roulette, live baccarat, Dream Catcher, Football Studio, Dragon Tiger and Dragonara.
Another betting section worth checking out on this mobile site is the virtual sports section. Virtual sports is a relatively new betting market where you get to place bets on simulated sports. RedZoneSports offers betting markets on virtual sports such as football, horse racing and greyhounds. What makes virtuals even more attractive to traditional sports betting is that they come with live video streams of the simulated sports. The videos are animations, but the quality of the graphics used can easily make you think you are watching an actual match or race on your phone.
One question punters will always have regarding mobile betting is on compatibility. Usually, downloadable betting apps will pose the challenge of being compatible with only selected phone models. However, when you are using a mobile site, you will not have such compatibility issues. This is the case with the RedZoneSports mobile site. The site is designed to work with any mobile device that has internet browsing capabilities. As such, the only thing you need to check on your phone or tablet is whether you have a functioning browser and also if your mobile data or Wi-Fi connection is on.
However, if you want to use the iOS app of RedZone Sports, you need to have an iOS version 9.0 or later.
For the avoidance of doubt, we have compiled a list of some mobile devices that we used to test the RedZoneSports mobile site with:
- Motorola E5 Plus
- Lenovo K5 Note
- Huawei Y6 Prime
- Samsung A30s
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Tab A
- iPhone 6S
- iPad Air
While playing from the mobile site, you will be granted access to the same promotions and bonuses as those offered on the desktop site. This means that you will not be getting any additional unique promos for the mobile site only. This, however, comes as no surprise since most of the mobile bonuses available in the market are pegged on you having to download the apps, something that RedZoneSports lacks.
Online gambling has been further enabled by the coming up of myriad internet-based payment and money transfer services. This has helped bookies serve clients in countries where significant e-wallets and cards are non-operational, at relatively lower costs. A quick glance at the RedZoneSports cashier page reveals an oddly limited list of payment options. Here, you will only have access to about 5 options for your deposits and withdrawals. However, this should not be misconstrued as being a limitation for the mobile site only, as the desktop site cashier section offers the same number of payment options. In the table below, we have provided you with a detailed summary of options you can use to deposit or withdraw while playing at the RedZoneSports mobile site:
|Payment Method||Deposit Minimum||Deposit Maximum||Time for Deposit||Taxes|
|Bank Wire Transfer||£10||£20 000||Instant||Free|
|Payment Method||Withdrawal Minimum||Withdrawal Maximum||Time for Withdrawal||Taxes|
|Visa||£20||£20 000||3-5 Working Days||Free|
|Bank Wire Transfer||£20||£20 000||3-5 Working Days||Free|
|Trustly||£20||£20 000||3-5 Working Days||Free|
|MasterCard||£20||£20 000||3-5 Working Days||Free|
Can I get the RedZoneSports mobile sports app from the iTunes store?
Yes, currently RedZoneSports have an iOS app to download through the App Store.
How will I access and start using the RedZoneSports mobile site?
To access the mobile site, type in the website’s URL on your mobile browser search bar. Using the mobile site is very easy since the navigation menu bar gives you clear shortcuts to switch from one betting section to the other.
Was the mobile site ever not working?
We did several runs on the RedZoneSports mobile site and experienced no downtimes. However, it is important to point out that the site tends to have some slight lag when launching the homepage, thought the lag-time is negligible.
What if the site will not install?
With the mobile site, you will not need to install any additional apps or software, provided you already have a mobile browser pre-installed.
Does the mobile site have the option to change the odds format?
Yes, from the mobile site, you can switch the odds format to either Decimal, Fractional or American.
Does the mobile site work on specific mobile browsers only?
Generally, the mobile site will open and work on any mobile browser. However, you will get to notice that some mobile browsers have blockers for instant-play flash video content, which could cause the casino games not load normally.
Can I access the RedZoneSports site from my old Blackberry phone?
Yes, the mobile site is designed to work normally on any internet-enabled device, including older Blackberry phones.
Will I get a welcome bonus package if I register as a new user from the mobile site?
Currently, RedZoneSports does not have a welcome bonus package. However, the mobile site’s promos page is set up similar to the desktop site such that the offers are exactly the same. So if in future they ever get to introduce such an offer, then new players registering from the mobile site will also be entitled to the same offer.
RedZoneSports was launched as an online betting site at around 2016. The site is owned and operated by Argyll Entertainment AG, a company that has been licensed to offer online betting services by the UK Gambling Commission. Such a reliable license has helped RedZoneSports penetrate the tough UK gambling market, in addition to the larger European market.
Mobile Rating and Conclusion
Despite lacking a downloadable app for Android, RedZoneSports still offers an impressive mobile gaming platform. Their mobile site does a pretty good job of incorporating sports betting and casino gaming into one platform. If you are keen on sports betting, then this mobile site will be particularly good to you thanks to the hundreds of betting markets available. But if you prefer casino gaming, then you might be disappointed by the lack of content. This is an area that could do with some improvement.
Besides this casino content issue, the mobile site platform has an excellent user interface. The choice of theme-colour and arrangement of the various tabs make it very easy to navigate and skip from one section to the other. Also, the mobile site seldom shows any downtime, thus assuring you of a reliable mobile gaming platform.
