Holding company Evoke Gaming Limited first established Redbet in 2004, operating under licences within the jurisdictions of both the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC). The two are the gambling industry’s strictest controlling bodies, having offices in Valetta, Malta as a registered gambling operator.
After successfully reaching an agreement to purchase in December 2017, Evoke, since February 2018 operates as a wholly owned subsidiary under the operational oversight of Mr Green & Co AB (publ). Both companies firmly committed to rectify Redbet’s relative lack of brand awareness and reduced footprint, a surprising fact considering its operational age, comprehensive, high-end sportsbook and casino offering that compares well or even outdoes competitor products.
Redbet membership delivers access to a vast bookmaking offering with markets containing a comprehensive array of sports types while its commendable casino lounge delivers, in the bookmaking arena, an unmatched player experience by means of a huge selection of gaming platforms sourced from numerous acclaimed online software development studios including NetEnt, Microgaming, BetSoft Gaming, and NYX Interactive.
Offering security of the highest levels to their clientele comes as a natural extension of Redbet membership, ensuring total safety of communications traffic via SSL protocols with data privacy locked down via encryption protocols and individual private security keys.
Is there an Android (.apk) application?
Currently, there are many sites offering links to download a dedicated Redbet app for the Android OS, none will lead you to the eventual successful installation of an official Redbet app since there is no such app.
Redbet, follows a recent trend seen among many online gambling entertainment venues, no more dedicated apps, just an absolutely stunning virtual mobile portal with the capacity to deliver full player-site functionality, which inherently also provides full cross-platform hardware compatibility to all popular OS brands.
This negates the compulsory requirement for casinos to develop and troubleshoot additional software and members to download and install additional software. Full featured access is now possible directly from within any popular mobile browser available in the Google Play store.
What about an iOS app?
iOS users do not receive a dedicated Redbet mobile app. The iOS experience suffered a similar fate to Android’s OS in our discussion above. Full cross-platform mobile compatibility was once an impossible goal during the era of compulsory dedicated casino & bookmaking apps, a situation enforced upon all mobile gamblers due to the total lack of compatibility between Android & iOS software platforms at that period in time, both suffering from radically different basic coding concepts. However, online casinos with the recent widespread adoption and incorporation of the HTML5 into online entertainment web platforms and all related gaming software saw the realisation of the hereto impossible dream of total cross-platform mobile smart device OS & hardware platform compatibility.
This newfound solution also left iOS users in the same fortunate position, not requiring any additional software to find, download, setup, and install. This leaves users of older devices and owners of non-high-end devices in an especially favourable situation, where they may previously have suffered from storage and performance disadvantages, they too now benefit from having direct access from within any popular mobile browser.
