Launched in 2016, Rizk Casino is a fresh casino that is regularly name dropped among the best online casinos nowadays. The successful brand recently decided to expand into uncharted territory with the addition of a sportsbook.
Even though a newcomer, the sportsbook section at Rizk is just as good as the casino. Dual-licensed by the MGA and UKGC, Rizk promises a safe and reliable gaming experience. With thousands of sports markets on offer and around 30 sports to bet on, the young bookie deserves your attention.
Apart from the solid selection of sports, Rizk has a number of great sports promotions that you’ll fall in love with.
Visit Rizk’s sportsbook and you’ll see that it’s easily one of the best-designed online bookies on the market. Rather than recycling that standard online bookie design, Rizk has opted for a modern mobile-optimized design that works best when used on tablets and smartphones.
Not that it doesn’t work great on desktop, of course. You can easily scroll through the sizeable collection of sports and identify the best bets thanks to the distinct menus. Punters will love the easy-to-navigate theme that provides easy access to all areas of the site.
Have you ever visited a bookie that pays just as much attention to its promotions as it does for the sports offer? Rizk sportsbook is one of them. There are promotions and specials that almost equal the number of sports offered at the site, making Rizk pretty unique in our honest opinion.
Apart from the mandatory free bet (called rizk-free here) which gives you a €10 free bet for a first deposit north of €20, there are loads of football-related promotions and specials. You can bet on derby matches, get additional risk-free bets or bet on boosted odds, making the promo section the real star of Rizk sportsbook.
Markets and Odds
You can place bets on over 30 sports at Rizk and hundreds of enticing markets as well. Although not the deepest selection we’ve seen, it’s more than enough for most punters. Football is expectedly at the top of the list, followed by tennis, basketball, ice hockey, snooker, and many more. There are even specials where you can predict, for example, who will rule Westeros in the upcoming final season of the hit TV show Game of Thrones. As we said, there’s plenty of action for all punters.
Rizk has included live betting in its offer. Just click on live betting to see a list of sports and matches you can bet while they’re in play. There’s no live streaming, though – we really hope Rizk adds the feature soon.
As part of MT SecureTrade Limited, Rizk holds two licenses – MGA and UK Gambling Commission. Both are regarded as the biggest and most trustworthy governing bodies for gambling in the world, making Rizk a reliable brand. If you ever had second thoughts about this bookie, these two licenses should be enough to clear your doubts.
The banking department in Rizk’s sportsbook section is a bit disappointing. Good luck to you if you only hold a PayPal account – the bookie doesn’t accept anything other than Neteller and Skrill. In addition to the mandatory Visa/MasterCard combo, of course.
The good news is that the deposit times are instant, with the maximum amount set at €5,000 per transaction (the minimum is €10). Withdrawals are possible on all these payment methods plus bank transfer. You can expect your winnings on e-wallets in just a few hours, while bank transfers and credit/debit cards will take 1-3 working days.
In our opinion, this is the weakest area at this promising bookie. Rizk will definitely benefit by adding a few more payment methods and we hope it comes sooner rather than later.
Unfortunately, Rizk has decided not to use social media for marketing. Don’t get us wrong – the casino boasts a Facebook and Twitter profile, but the FB account hasn’t been active in almost a year and the Rizk accounts on Twitter are only available in Suomi and Norwegian languages.
Due to the fact that social media marketing is highly profitable nowadays, the decision not to go with the flow is a bit baffling. It also cuts a reliable customer support channel off, leaving you with only email and live chat as possible options. At least the customer support team is available 24/7.
With a solid offer of sports, thousands of markets and truckload of promotions, Rizk hit the jackpot with its sportsbook. There’s barely anything to really criticize apart from the very few payment methods and the lack of live streaming. As a fresh bookie, we’re sure that these and other features are coming to the website soon which should improve an already solid bookie.
The website design is superbly optimized for smartphones so you can bet on the go, which is another plus for the bookie. If you haven’t visited Rizk so far, do it as soon as possible – you won’t be disappointed.
