It’s a rare thing to have a bookies endorsed by a world class athlete. OK so he’s retired but he was still the World Champion. It is usually the other way round but it seems that RealDealBet.co.uk is actually good enough for Evander Holyfield to put his name to it. So what’s it like?
Let’s get stuck into this RealDealBet review and see if we can shed some light onto it. RealDealBet are relatively new on the scene but the parent company is not. Blue Star Planet Ltd have been around a while now running the likes of 10.bet so they are known in the industry. The site is UK facing but has a European operation also with four language platforms from the .com domain.
First impressions are good. We have the usual template structure in black but the gold accents add a touch of class. There is enough colour and live pictures in the banners to brighten things up. The functionality is straight forward with no surprises good or bad. The format and layout is the same as every other using this mix of software. Sports list on the left fixtures in the middle and betting slip and banners on the right.
Having an ex world heavy weight champion with fists raised, smiling and telling you to join is novel piece of marketing. But the welcome of 100% deposit match up to £50 is better than a punch in the face from the four times world champ and two times victor over Mighty Mike. The RealDealBet bonus amount will depend on where you are living. The bonus amount in Germany is up to €100 for example. The terms and conditions will vary also due to local regulations usually. The roll over for the bonus is 5 times on a three-fold with odds of 2/5 (1.40) at least you have 90 days to achieve this.
The UK has a Mighty March bonus. Deposit with the code 30Mighty and get 50% bonus up to £30. RealDealBet run lots of monthly reload bonuses. They also run others like the payback of your stake up to £10 if your horse loses by a head or less. There is an enhanced ACCA bonus on some selected events with up to 60% better odds. Another offer is the popular early cash-out. RealDealBet have regular offers and like to mix it up a bit with them.
With 30 different sports to wager on there is plenty of choice for the enthusiastic gambler. As a UK and European facing sports book football is of course the most popular sport. There is a comprehensive A-Z of football leagues and competitions to choose from. The number of markets available is also very good with over 100 on most top tier games you can get those corner totals bets on. There is a good selection of handicap bets along with exact score multi-bets and even totals on bookings and first cards.
Football is very well covered but so is tennis with thirty or so markets available on the tourney playing at the moment from ATP, ITF and WTA all of the major opens are well covered as are some lesser tourneys. Then we have the race card. A rare thing with new bookies online is a race card. The RealDealBet has a comprehensive selection of the day’s meetings and offers ante post bets as well. There are offers on big meets and the odds are spot on. The actual card is simple with just the silks shown and weight/age and previous odds. There is no stats page or form guide but they take bets on the horse so all’s good.
It’s a shame there is no live feed as yet. It would elevate this bookies to another class but the live in-play software works well the interface is user friendly just the same as the rest of the site. The odds update regularly and there is not too much chatter in the forums about it all going wrong.
There are stacks of events in the live program and he available markets are still very good. For example 54 markets still available with only 20 minutes to go in a match not to shabby. The site is mobile friendly there is no RealDealBet mobile app to download. Just log in from your devices browser. As with most new online bookies the site actually looks better on a mobile device. Although this is classy enough as it is.
RealDealBet is actually pretty good. You can have an account with RealDealBet in one of 44 different currencies. There are loads of ways to bank credit/debit cards, electronic banking and e-Wallets, PayPal being one of them. All without charge by the site. If you didn’t already know PayPal has its own methods of vetting gambling websites and will withdraw its service if there are complaints that hold up. The site is registered and licensed in Malta as well as the UK.
The UK Gambling Commission has teeth and does use them. There are no sanctions on the company and there hasn’t been any in the past. It stood to reason that if Evander Holyfield was this much involved then the bookies must be worth a look. Ex fighters do hit low points and have to get by at times. But Mr. Holyfield is no bum. The site looks good, works well and the odds/markets are very much at the higher end of the scale. Forum chatter is not too bad there is nothing scandalous going on at this point in time. All in all yes they are the RealDealBet.
