32Red has one of the best names on the online casino market - and they back this up by offering one of the best gambling experiences as well. The casino is powered by the mighty Microgaming, creators of some of the most popular online casino games today. This means that 32Red has an impressive arsenal of games, amassing to a whopping 450. The only blotch in their record is the lack of Live Casino play - something I am sure that they will eventually add to keep up with the competition.
If you are looking for a place that offers huge welcome bonuses then there is no better place than 32Red. Signing up and starting to play is as easy as 1,2,3 and with a nicely designed interface it is easy to navigate the casino. Depositing and withdrawing money can be done easily through a variety of e-wallets and other banking options.
Topping everything off is a great customer service team that really knows their stuff and is willing and able 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through a variety of contact ways.
Download and Registration
There are two ways to get started when you sign up to the award-winning 32Red online casino - voted casino of the decade.
You can either choose instant play, which requires flash software, or you can use the downloadable software.
When I signed up I chose the latter and the whole process took little more than five minutes from beginning to the end, including registering the relevant information - such as player name and password - to set up an account.
New Member Incentives
Now registered it was time to begin playing which meant transfering funds.
32Red has a fantastic welcome bonus for new members that sees the casino give a player £32 for every £20 they deposit in their account up to a maximum of £160.
I deposited £40 in my 32Red account and received £64 that I was able to use on any of the casino games available.
Game Variety and Gameplay
32Red has an incredible amount of games to choose from with more than 450 at your disposal.
This vast selection of games is divided into a number of categories: progressive jackpots, slots, table games, video pokers and unique games, plus there are multi-player and tournament options.
All the old classics are there - blackjack, baccarat, roulette, craps - often with a twist as 32Red looks to spice up the granddaddies of casino games.
The graphics and sound are both of high quality. When playing the classic casino games, the background noises make you feel like you're in a real-life casino and the voice that describes the action when playing blackjack is very attractive!
32Red also features the much sought-after progressive games, some of which have enormous jackpots just waiting to be won.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
There are plenty of options when it comes to depositing funds into your 32Red account.
The most common of these involve the use of debit cards - Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Mastercard and Maestro - Credit Cards, and eWallets like Paypal, NETeller and moneybookers.com - all of which are free.
Deposits can be made in GBP, US$, Euros, CAD$ and AUD$ and players must deposit a minimum of 10 units of whichever currency they opt for.
Transfers occur instantly. I opted to use my debit card and was able to play in a matter of a few minutes.
Withdrawing cash is also painless. You can use the same methods to withdraw as you did to deposit. Players must withdraw a minimum 10 units of their chosen currency and, again, this service is free.
Withdrawing from an eWallet is instant but debit and credit card transactions can take between 3 and 5 days.
Customer Service and Support
Any online casino worth its salt has to have a full customer support service and 32Red doesn't leave you wanting.
Despite not having any problems while using 32Red, I did have a couple of questions that I wanted answering.
I had the choice of instant chat, email, telephone - of which most of the numbers are free to call - fax, skype, and, curiously, a traditional letter.
I opted for the instant chat option and had my questions answered in a matter of moments.
Promotions and Loyalty Programs
Loyalty is rewarded at 32Red and it is conducted via the Red Ruby Reward scheme. The games you play depend upon how quickly you accumulate your "Red Rubies".
For example, playing slots or keno earns you one Red Ruby per 10 chips wagered, whereas you earn one Red Ruby for every 50 chips when playing blackjack or Baccarat.
Once a player has 1,000 Red Rubies they can be redeemed for 10 free casino chips subject to the usual playthrough requirements.
32Red also has a VIP programme which is called Club Rouge which players have to be invited to to join. Once in you receive a host of extra promotions, loyalty points, gifts and exclusive offers.
