Software & Games
32 Red is stocked exclusively by Microgaming products. Games are available in Instant Play, so you can launch them directly in your browser, but there is also a downloadable version which is not instantly recognisable. If you don’t mind installing a piece of software to access the offering, click on “Premium Casino” tab at the top left corner. The main benefit is that you’ll get to play a significantly larger number of games, close to 600 in total.
Casino Bloke likes it that games come with a free-play option which doesn’t even require that you register first. Pretty decent portfolio segmentation makes it easy to find the kind you like the most, either by choosing a category, or filtering by popularity, recency, or the size of your bankroll (high-limit games singled out).
Collection of several hundred slots (among which more than 100 classic ones!) features all of the most popular Microgaming titles – Mermaids Millions, Thunderstruck II, Game of Thrones, Untamed Giant Panda, and basically any and every game you’ve chosen to spin the reels of many, many times before. If you’d prefer to play to a newer release, try the mystical and visually amazing Forbidden Throne, captivating Goldwyn’s Fairies and its creative features, or 243 ways-to-win Beautiful Bones with a unique theme. The biggest progressives are also accounted for, and perhaps you’ll be able to replicate the recent success of a gamer who has landed €8 million (lucky, lucky bugger) while playing Mega Moolah on his mobile device.
There are plenty of alternatives for those who prefer their skill to take a more important role in the gameplay and its outcome. High Streak, Perfect Pairs and Hi-Lo are a few of 26 available Blackjack games (or as many as 50 in download version), while the selection of dozen Roulette games includes the usual suspects plus the Multi-wheel and high limit variants. Fans of Poker get to choose from 3 Card Poker Gold Series and 20+ Video Pokers, or they can, better yet, enter a dedicated Poker Room and test their skills against other players at a game of Hold’em, Blaze, Omaha, Stud, Razz or Draw Poker.
Want more? There are currently 15 active Tournaments to join, such as €20K Fortnightly Freeroll, €1,000 All Day Extender, and 3K 3-Day Survivor, playing with some of the best Microgaming slots.

Microgaming is perhaps not the top live gaming supplier (they’ve entered this segment quite late), but they still do a decent job of delivering an authentic live casino experience. 32 Red Live Casino gives you a choice of 16 tables with the basics well covered, which means you’ll be able to play Live Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, and several Live Poker variants. High rollers get to take a set at high-limit VIP Roulette tables, as well as Silver, Platinum and other VIP Blackjack tables.
- Provider: Microgaming
- Games: Live Roulette, Speed Roulette, Double Ball Roulette, Immersive Roulette, Auto Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat, Baccarat Squeeze, Casino Hold’em, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, 3 Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker
- VIP tables: Yes
Game library suffers when you move your gaming to a mobile device, with only 160 games surviving the transition. As you can imagine, these are mostly slots. You’ll still get a small selection of Roulette and Blackjack variants, several Video Pokers, and (good news!) 14 live dealer games. The operator additionally offers mobile apps, and not only for iOS and Android, but also Windows devices. Not so good news is that when using an app you’ll face an even smaller choice, about enough for a short bus ride home.
- Number of games: 160
- Mobile Apps: Yes
The operator offers quite a wide range of payment methods and easily covers all of the most popular ones – except for a mobile payment option. You’ll be able to make deposits of £10 or more by way of debit and credit cards, E-wallets, PayPal, Pre-paid cards and Wire Transfer, and pay in 9 different currencies, namely GBP, USD, EUR, CAD, AUD, NOK, RUB, CHF, SEK and JPY. If you get incredibly lucky and land, let’s say a £100,000 win, surely you’ll love the fact that the Casino will cash out the whole amount in a single day.

Casino Bloke’s Verdict
32Red provides an incredibly user-friendly and content-full site. Nothing is held back, and that certainly makes it easier to build trust. The Casino preforms well across all segments, be it a generous and well-structured library built with the help of one of the top developers in the industry, promotional portfolio which takes good care of new members as well as regular players, wide selection of payment methods and impressively high max withdrawal limits, and a well-trained support team standing by 24/7. There’s really not much to complain about; 32Red is a complete package and a sound option for anyone looking for a new place to satisfy their gaming needs.
