The Red Lion Sportsbook Review

The Red Lion sportsbook is one of the best we’ve seen. It is extremely comprehensive and offers a world-class navigational experience which is where many sportsbooks fall short. It’s easy to find the sport, league and specific match you’re looking for.

And if you’re not looking for anything in particular, Red Lion’s “live” tab and powerful search bar make it easy to find something to bet on.

Live betting

red lion sports section

The live in-play betting capability is second to none. Once any match starts, a ton of new markets open up such as ‘next goal’ or ‘[team] to win from losing position’. Odds change in real-time as matches develop and many bets qualify for live cashout—this means when the tide is in your favour, you can cashout for less than your expected total without having to wait for the final result.

This is especially powerful when backing the underdog, since you can make a profit before the favourite steams back into the lead later in the game.

Our favourite bet type is the accumulator, where players wager on multiple events concurrently. If every event wins, the payout is substantially higher than individual bets; however, if even a single leg loses, the entire bet loses.

Live racing

Red Lion also maintains a members-only live racing suite that’s distinct from the main sportsbook. This is a paradise for both horse and greyhound racing fans. There is a comprehensive live timetable so betting on your favourites, and seeing the results in real-time, is effortless.

What sports are available at Red Lion?

Red Lion covers more than 40 unique sports and eSports categories. Within soccer, there are over 170 leagues and divisions with dozens of betting markets within each. Whether you’re following the Women’s World Cup or German lower-league matches, you can find virtually every global competition.

Soccer is obviously the biggest market, but the range of sports is incredibly diverse. As a snapshot some of the lesser-known options are:

  • Futsal
  • Darts
  • Cricket
  • Pesapallo
  • Softball
  • Lacrosse
  • 3v3 basketball


Most sportsbooks offer a token handful of eSports categories. Red Lion goes several steps further. Players can wager on:

  • FIFA
  • Counter-Strike
  • League of Legends
  • eShooter
  • eFighting (Injustice 2)
  • NBA 2K
  • eCricket
  • eBaseball
  • Rocket League

Some eSports (like eCricket and eBaseball) have multiple international markets and professional leagues.

Promotions and bonuses

red lion sports bonus

New players can cash in a free bet worth up to €100 using the code FREEBET. Minimum odds for the free bet are 1.7 (nearly 2:1) but there are no further wagering requirements. Some types of bets (including accumulators) are prohibited, but the vast majority of bets are accepted.

In a high-pressure competition like the Champions League, there is always potential for an upset and so finding a good market for your 1.7 odds should be easy.

Our favourite promotion however is the Combo Boost. Place a 4-leg accumulator (or higher) with minimum odds of 1.5 per leg, if you win, Red Lion will boost your returns by up to 50%!

Deposit and withdraw options

With its strong casino foundations, Red Lion’s comprehensive banking options come as no surprise. Players can deposit using credit card (Mastercard or Amex), bank transfer or choose from a variety of cryptocurrencies using Coinspaid, a one-click solution that makes paying in a wide range of coins effortless.

For withdrawals, note that requests can be over 48 hours to be processed and payments over €2,300 are subject to additional checks. Players can withdraw a maximum of €5,000 per day, €7,000 per month and  €50,000 over the lifetime of the account. Note that if a player has made only one deposit but hits a huge win, they can only withdraw up to 15x the initial deposit.

Mobile support

Probably the Red Lion casino’s biggest weakness is customer support. There is no live chat on the website and users can only get help via email. This is the same on both desktop and mobile.
