The BetRegal Review That You Have Been Eagerly Waiting For
BetRegal is another one of those new waves of bookies which also has a strong bias towards the online casino aspect of their operation. Founded in 2017, it is definitely not one of the better-looking online bookies which you will come across, but it does the job which it is intended to do by offering its players a decent range of betting opportunities along with some eye-catching promotions. The overall branding of the website is good in that it gives the impression of authority which most punters will agree, goes a long way in the online betting industry.
- Wide variety of sports to bet on
- Knowledgeable customer support
- Decent bonuses and promotions
- Various betting options
- Minimum deposit: £10
- Wide range of banking options
- Regulation: UKGC
Is BetRegal UK Properly Regulated?
BetRegaUK is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission so you can rest assured that this is a bookie which meets all of the requirements which will ensure that, amongst other things, all of your personal details along with any invested funds will be safe and secure.
BetRegal also take responsible gambling seriously as their association with the responsible gambling charities such as BeGambleAware and GamStop prove. They also have lots of help available for any of their customers who may be experiencing problems with their online gambling activities.
Registering an Account with BetRegal UK
Registering an account is, as you have probably guessed, extremely straightforward. Just click on the orange ‘Join Now’ button at the top right-hand corner of the website, and you will be taken through the simple two-step registration process.
The first step requires you to enter your email address and to choose a username and a password.
The second step requires you to enter your full name, gender, date of birth, your address and telephone number.
Once these steps have been completed, you will be ready to log into your account by clicking on the ‘Login’ button which can be found directly to the left of the ‘Join Now’ button at the top right-hand corner of the website.
How to Make a Deposit into Your Account
Making a deposit into your account is very easy to do, and it would be fair to say that there is a banking method available to suit everyone. The most popular banking methods are Visa and Mastercard, but bank transfers are also accepted along with the popular web wallets such as PayPal, Skrill and NETELLER. Less popular banking methods such as Zimpler, eps and Euteller are also accepted, with every banking method having a minimum deposit of £10 limit in place.
Everything is well laid out, and as soon as a deposit has been made, it is instantly available to play at BetRegal UK. If only the same could be said about the BetRegal withdrawal process.
Their website states that the withdrawal time for a Visa or Mastercard withdrawal is between six and eight days which, to be perfectly honest with you, is a little strange. We have made enquiries as to whether this time estimate includes both the withdrawal processing time and the time it takes to arrive back to the user’s bank account, but the reply from BetRegal was pretty vague.
Common sense tells us that it is just the wording regarding the withdrawal time, which is a little confusing, but this is something which BetRegal should correct as soon as possible.

The BetRegal Bonus Offers
When you look at the promotion section of the BetRegal website, you will see that there are several bonuses which are aimed at the casino section of the website. We won’t be looking at those as this review is based on the sportsbook so let’s take a closer look at the main sportsbook bonus which is the BetRegal welcome offer.
The BetRegal welcome offer is a straightforward, bet £10 and receive a £10 free bet but as you would probably expect, there are terms and conditions attached to this bonus so let’s take a closer look at those.
To start with, the BetRegal sign up offer is awarded automatically when you open a new account so you will not need a BetRegal bonus code or anything like that. There is the option of opting out of the BetRegal sign up offer during the registration process if this is something that you are not interested in.
The BetRegal sign up bonus of £10 is awarded when your initial bet of £10 has been settled, and it should be pointed out that there is a minimum odds requirement for this initial bet of evens 1/1 (2.0) and that the bet has to be settled within fourteen days of being placed. Bear that in mind if you are thinking of placing the opening bet on an ante post-market. Once the free bet of £10 has been awarded, it must be placed on a selection with minimum odds of 4/5 (1.80). As in common with the vast majority of other bookies, any deposit which is made by Skrill, NETELLER or PayPal will not qualify for the BetRegal welcome offer.
BetRegal do have various other bonuses and promotions in place throughout the year for existing customers, but these are prone to change so always take the time to look at the promotion page on a regular basis as well as checking your email account for any new offers.
The BetRegal UK Betting Markets
It could be argued that BetRegal UK don’t have as many betting markets available as some of the other bookies such as bet365 or Ladbrokes, but that is not really a problem for most punters. As an example, BetRegal have just under two hundred betting markets available for an average Premier League football match whereas bet365 will have three hundred, but the markets on BetRegal should satisfy most punters. The horse racing markets, along with other sporting markets, are on a par with the rest of the industry.
The Available Sports to Bet on
There is a great range of sports to bet on at BetRegal UK with the most popular being football and horse racing. Punters who like to bet on lesser-known sports such as squash and floorball are also well catered for, along with the increasingly popular category of esports.
It is a sign of the times when we are talking about betting on esports such as ‘Call of Duty’ and ‘FIFA’ as being the norm, but that is an example of the changing face of the betting industry, and those bookies which don’t adapt will be in serious danger of falling by the wayside.
The Process of Placing a Bet with BetRegal
Placing a bet with BetRegal is basically the same as with most other sportsbooks that you have an account with. You just need to find the bet which you would like to place by first clicking on the sport from the list down the left-hand side of the website and then narrowing it down to the event.
When you have come to your decision, click on the odds and a betting slip will open up on the right-hand side of the website. It is then just a matter of entering the stake and then clicking on the ‘Place Bets’ button.
If you are interested in placing a multi bet such as a ‘yankee’ or an accumulator, just add your selections, and they will all be placed in the betting slip. The betting slip will automatically calculate the cost of the multi bet so you know how much the total bet will be.
Live Betting Options
Live betting is available and can be accessed by click on the ‘In-Play Betting’ tab in the top left-hand corner of the website. The live play betting options are well laid out, and you can see from the schedule which events you can place live bets on throughout the day.
To make it even easier, the live play events are separated by sports which are listed across the top of the page. Unfortunately, live streaming is not available, but BetRegal do have an in-play tracker graphic so that you can get a good idea of how the game is going.
The BetRegal UK Mobile Options
At the time of writing, BetRegal does not have an app, but the mobile version of the website will load up automatically when the URL is entered into a mobile browser. Some punters will view this as negative because so many bookies now have dedicated Android and IOS apps for their customers, but this is just how it is at the moment. If you are using the mobile version of the BetRegal website, you will still use the same log in details along with the same banking details.
The Design of the Website
- Headquarters: 135, High street, Sliema SLM 1548, Malta
- Company: Aspire Global International LTD
- Email : firstname.lastname@example.org
- Live Chat : Yes
It is hard to actually put your finger on the reason why but once you have clicked on the BetRegal login button, the overall feeling is that it is not as slick as some of the better bookies which are out there. It feels slightly cumbersome and to be perfectly honest; the colour scheme doesn’t really do it any favours. You would have to say though that once you have hit the BetRegal login button and are ready to place a bet, it is very easy to find the bet which you are looking for.
Is Your BetRegal Account Safe and Secure?
The very fact that BetRegal is fully authorised by the UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming Authority should tell you everything that you should need to know about the safety and security of the bookie. Full SSL encryption is in place, which means that your personal details and invested funds will be safe and secure.
What about the Customer Support
The customer support is very good and very accessible. If you click on any of the ‘Contact Us’ links a window will open in the middle of the website which contains all of the contact options: email, live chat and telephone.
Click on the BetRegal live chat and another window will open which will contain different subjects which you may need help about account, bonuses and verification etc. Click on the link which is applicable to the question you may have, and a BetRegal live chat operator will be available to help you. The live chat operators are friendly and can usually resolve any questions with the minimum of fuss.
The BetRegal UK Verdict
A new bookie which looks like is still learning the ropes but is definitely heading in the right direction. The odds are competitive, the range of sports to bet on are adequate and the BetRegal welcome bonus, even though it is basic, is still an opportunity for some free money. All in all, this is a bookie which you should seriously consider opening an account with if you don’t have one already.
