BetRegal is an online casino, gaming, and sports bookmaker that has existed since 2017 and has become great competition to other betting sites with a much longer history. As one of the Regal Group brands, they’re fully licensed both in the United Kingdom and Europe. The betting website is currently powered and operated under the Aspire Global Communication platform, and also has licensing by Malta Gaming Authority outside the United Kingdom.
In our opinion, BetRegal is one of the best platforms on the market; hence the reason for this review. We will be looking at the sportsbook and how they’ve been able to put together a successful site with all of the services they render. Let’s walk through BetRegal’s sportsbook site from the process of registration down to all of their fantastic features.
Registering on BetRegal is a smooth process that takes a few minutes to go through and a few steps that are easy to understand. You shouldn’t need any help finding your way through the registration process even if you aren’t very media savvy.
Firstly, you’ll need to enter your basic details like username, email address, and password. After this, BetRegal will ask for your name, phone numbers and the like; it is this step that tailors the account personally to you and allows you to start betting on the site.
As soon as you conclude this stage, you’re good to go (after you make your first deposit, of course!). As for the security procedure, you will have to go through a verification process before making a withdrawal. During this, they will ask you to upload important documents such as your driver’s license, national identity cards, or international passport.
Verification is an important process these days and every gambling site is expected to verify their users before allowing withdrawals; BetRegal is simply adhering to industry rules and we’re big believers in this process.
Ultimately, registration is simple and even the dreaded verification stage is just as easy. As long as you have the necessary documentation, you’re ready to go. With this, all you need to do is upload from your mobile device or desktop.
With BetRegal, new bettors are entitled to a £10 welcome offer once the first deposit of £10 is made and staked (at odds of at least 2.00). Once your bet has been placed and settled within the first two weeks, you’ll be able to bet with your welcome bonus on a coupon at any market stake starting from 1.80. If any or both of your bets secure you a win, then you’re guaranteed a cash withdrawal once the funds are cleared for payment; there’s no pesky wagering requirements with winnings.
Good news; BetRegal is compatible with both mobile devices and desktops. Compared to others, we think it has an excellent design on both platforms. Whether you want to bet while in the comfort of your own home or while cramped in a train on a commute to work, you have options.
You can access BetRegal on all types of smartphones owing to its HTML 5 development, but there is no mobile app which might disappoint some users. Talking of disappointment, we did experience a couple of issues. Firstly, there’s an annoying loading pop-up that had us almost screaming at the computer. Every time we wanted to switch sports, this popped up and we can see it ruining the experience for many. We also tried all web browsers and seemed to have some problems with Google Chrome, but we’ve spoken to others who didn’t have such problems so this could have been our own issue.
On a more positive note, we love the search function. With this, it allows you to go straight to the market or the team you want to bet on; it saves you a lot of stress, and this is something worth highlighting.
Banking and Payment Methods
BetRegal has what is probably the highest number of banking methods when compared to other young betting sites; there are a large number of banking and payment options for users on this platform and it is a plus on their part. Deposits are processed immediately, and the lowest amount for any deposit method is £10 per transaction.
As for withdrawals, the processing time is 48 hours (if you change your mind, simply cancel the withdrawal and the funds will stay in your account). Otherwise, it’s processed rather promptly. Withdrawing to a debit card or to Neteller should take around two days on average but could be a few hours more from time to time.
With wire transfers, they take anything up to five days to clear. If you don’t get your money within ten days, BetRegal say to get in touch as soon as possible. In our experience, we didn’t have any transactions take longer than ten days. As we noted earlier, you must go through the verification process with the appropriate documents before you can make your first withdrawal.
Sports and Markets
BetRegal cover all the big sports and markets, and also has some of the less popular sports. With this in mind, we believe there’s practically something for everyone on the website. There is a very impressive coverage of sports like tennis, football, golf, US sports, and various other big events. Smaller and less available sports are not forgotten on BetRegal, and you will find athletics, motor racing, badminton, and even electronic sports. Perhaps you can find a new favourite sport for betting?
With football in particular, the market coverage is not just wide but highly impressive; there are as many as 150 individual markets for nearly all lower league matches and nearly 200 markets for the top league games.
Of course, horse racing dominates the website just as much as football does and is given great coverage as well. During our time on the platform, we saw all United Kingdom and Ireland races properly covered (as well as time for some international races). If your horse racing interests span outside the UK scene, you have nothing to worry about as BetRegal also covers events in France, South Africa, US, and other nations.
BetRegal’s huge market offering is one that you can’t get tired of – they have something for lovers and enthusiasts of all kinds of sports.
From bet slips to live betting, BetRegal takes a positive
step to ensure that their features are not only easy to understand and use, but
also productive and enjoyable. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to
bet on your favourite sport but being unable to find your way around the
platform; with BetRegal, the entire design makes it easy to understand and
For betting slips, BetRegal uses as simple system as opposed to slips from some bookies that are confusing and where it’s difficult to add/remove selections.
Live betting is perhaps the best feature BetRegal has (and rightly so since it’s normally where all the action takes place). The layouts of all the sports pages are quite exciting, but the football page trumps all.
When we played around on BetRegal, we loved the typical three-tier style that features the games to the left, the markets in the middle, and the match centre on the right. Furthermore, they have a chart that shows results of live matches as they progress. This way, you can keep track of results even if you aren’t watching the matches directly.
Next up, you can keep tabs on your best or most common betting markets and mark them as a ‘favourite’. Rather than having to go through the tons of markets listed on the page, you simply click to your favourites and get started within seconds. If you want to try a new market, why not take some time going through the list? The way you play is completely up to you.
Additionally, the platform links sports to their betting pages so you can easily navigate from one page to the other (well, for some sports). For other sports, you might have to go the long way to get there (sorry!).
BetRegal also separates their bet options into ‘single’, ‘system’, or ‘combo’ and we like this feature. Finally, how could we not mention their 99% payout deal? With this superb feature, the bookie takes 1% from bets where the industry average is 6%.
On the whole, BetRegal offers great odds and they seem to be consistent through all markets. Although some markets are better than others, this is to be expected with any sportsbook so it’s not too concerning.
Responsible Gambling Features
In betting, there’s always a place for responsibility and BetRegal take this seriously (which we love to see). Firstly, they have put up features to watch and monitor your deposits from your very first sign up. Secondly, they’re part of GamStop, withdrawals require documents, and we think they will eventually bring this documents stage forward to the sign-up process.
All things considered, BetRegal offer good customer support and they’re available through email, live chat, phone, and other methods. BetRegal is also part of the Customers Are Really Everything (C.A.R.E) program; they work on making it easy for customers to get in touch and find resolutions to any problems. However, your starting point should always be their extensive FAQs page.
On BetRegal, there’s a plan in place to make their customers regal in every sense of the word. The site has a ranking system for bettors to get recognition for their loyalty, gain benefits, and qualify for amazing offers.
When you open your account, you become a member of the BetRegal VIP club. From here, you begin to work your way up the ranks while earning points for every bet you place. With any luck, you’ll eventually get to the highest level – Prestige.
As you climb up the ranks, you become entitled to certain features that other basic and lower rank users are not entitled to. When at the Prestige level, your experience is about to get a whole lot better because you’ll enjoy;
- A personal account manager
- Personalised offers
- Monthly cashbacks
- Express cash out processes
- 50 free casino games every Sunday
BetRegal is one of the newer bookmakers that are blazing a different trail both in their style, design, and offers. Going outside the norm and duplications that we often experience with new betting sites, BetRegal is taking it up another notch with the provision of great design, plenty of markets, and a wide range of sports (as well as good odds and a VIP system).
Elsewhere, we like the welcome bonus and the responsible gambling features allow bettors to take care of their habits and finances. For us, BetRegal is doing well as a young platform and, while there are a few things to improve upon, it will suit most visitors perfectly!
