32 Red Casino Download
Download the blacklisted 32 Red Casino (at your considerable risk - read on) to your PC/laptop to access downloaded games from Microgaming or play the no download version in your browser. There's also a mobile version of the casino compatible with Android/Blackberry, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Payouts used to be fast but over the years 32 Red has slowed down paying its players and stopped paying on certain days, most likely in the hope that players will reverse the withdrawal and play again, losing the cashout money. Thanks, 32 Red!
For what it's worth, we've been reviewing online casinos since before 32 Red and its parent company (Flutter Entertainment/Kindred) was even created. We know the 'rotten' from the good and far more about the internet gambling industry than they do.
Note that unfortunately, only first deposits made by credit/credit card or PayPal qualify for the welcome bonus. Use any other deposit method (ie. another e-wallet or wire) and you won't get the welcome bonus. The bonus varies depending on your location and we're not going to promote it anyway.
Hidden downloads and faded glory
Whilst 32 Red has earned itself a reputation for growing too big to be personally attentive, there are many similar casinos offering the same Microgaming games (and in some cases, more than 32 Red) such as the newer, less 'tired' Cosmo Casino (click it to view in a new tab/window).
Cosmo and other newer casinos have been busy taking a not-insignificant slice of 32 Red's player base and are likely to continue doing so offering a newer, more energetic experience with new, different games to try alongside all the Microgaming classics.
32 Red isn't anything like the dominant online casino monster it used to be in the UK, or globally. Payments needed to stay fast (32 has slowed down payouts over recent years and withdrawn the weekend cashout facility) and the casino needed to stay fresh or it risked becoming another Microgaming relic, which is very much on the cards. Stealing money, cheating and changing terms retroactively are all VERY good reasons to keep your distance from 32 Red. It's days of glory are over and we're firmly in the land of dodgepots to steer well clear of.
Changes made to any online casino are - or should be - positive steps to improve an existing download or non-download casino but 32 Red's changes always meant a reduction in quality, member benefits or facilities. It's called greed and dishonesty.
For those still in doubt, search for 32 Red blacklisted in any search engine and you'll find most reputable online casino portals have also dumped 32 Red for theft, dishonesty and lots of other reasons. Take a look around player forums and you'll find an endless stream of player (or rather, ex-player) complaints regarding slow payouts, greed and 32 Red's wish that you'll lose/reverse your withdrawal before you ever see a penny/cent of it. We ain't alone in our thinking and it's reassuring to know that there ARE some other ethical websites out there as well as Casino-Download.com trying to spread the word about 32 Red's actions.
A slow decline
Something not (yet) directly noticeable to 32 Red's membership is their habitual practice of retroactively changing terms and conditions of contracts with advertisers and affiliates, knowingly paying the publisher considerably less than the originally agreed amount. Whilst most players won't be aware or involved in any of this, it does unfortunately speak volumes about the moral attitude of the individuals responsible at 32 Red regarding their 'pay your bills' philosophy and their willingness to honour agreed deals and owed monies. We talked with 32 Red's staff right up until the point of blacklisting and the arrogance and rudeness demonstrated by their employees was staggering. There are some 'not nice' people operating 32 Red. Don't expect any difference as a player if/when you run into difficulties with your account/cashouts.
Some remaining players at 32 Red might be satisfied enough for now but long-term members are very likely to have noticed less promo's, significantly (and deliberately) slower payouts of winnings, loyalty point reward issues and a lot of other annoying niggles over the years - not least some serious hiding of 32 Red's download casino. Despite the casino's download edition being by far the best version of 32 Red (it's even named the PREMIUM version!), 32 Red appear determined to keep it on the quiet. Which is where we usually come to the rescue. Hurrah for Casino-Download.com! Well, actually not - we pulled our download links to 32 Red when the casino became blacklisted. We do not want to be the source of any players losing money to a dishonest casino and cannot in good conscience send new members their way. Unlike the crooks running this operation, we have morals and profit is not everything.
Comparing the competition
If you're tempted to see how Cosmo compares to 32 Red, read our review of Cosmo Casino (opens in new tab/window) and decide for yourself which is better and most importantly, which one you prefer. Bottom line, 32 Red is no longer particularly noteworthy and there are lots of alternative casinos that offer a lot more so check out some of 32 Red's rival casinos.
You can read about other online casinos in the 32 Red group here at casino-download.com including Roxy Palace Casino - all are Microgaming instant-play and download casinos.
For players still risking their money at 32 Red, the casino offers regular monthly promotions for existing players, including reload bonuses and free chip giveaways. You will automatically be included in 32 Red Casino's loyalty program, Red Ruby Rewards. Again, you can expect to run into problems with most of these.
No! 32 Red Casino has been officially blacklisted for stealing advertisers funds, plus allowing their casino to become pretty crappy compared to most online casinos - especially Microgaming. 32 Red is no longer a trustworthy brand or casino and we urge visitors to close their accounts. Ensure you remove ALL your details, especially your payment and personal details. Play at 32 Red at your own risk - and it's a big one.
March 2020 Update: Despite our clear instructions to Kindred/32 Red not to contact us, we continue to receive spam from them regarding their affiliate program. We have warned 32 Red that any further contact will result in a reporting of their activity to the UK Gambling Commission. As expected, 32 Red's replies (from an individual calling himself 'Ben' but providing no surname) have continued to be rude and unprofessional. Again, we repeat that you could experience the same unprofessionalism if/when you attempt to close your account and prevent receiving further contact from this group. We'll keep you posted on any further spam we receive from 32 Red and reiterate our strong advice NOT to risk your money with this outfit of failing brands.
ANOTHER March 2020 Update! 32 Red continue their unethical attitudes and actions and seem to WANT a referral complaint to the UK Gambling Commission. Although we received an apology and assurance that we would receive no further correspondence from 32 Red, we have AGAIN been spammed by this group of rogues. We did warn you that it would be difficult to close your accounts and prevent further contact and they seem hell bent on proving us right. After our latest complaint, 32 Red's response (from someone who couldn't even be bothered to provide a name) was, "You do not have the option of opting out of these messages". We think it's time to let the UKGC decide about that. Good luck, 32 Red.
And again... Just minutes after informing 32 Red/Kindred that we were escalating our
complaint to the UK Gambling Commission, and in the midst of completing the complaint form to start the process, we have received this reply from another person who decided not to put their name to the e-mail (cowardly or afraid of retribution from the UKGC?): "Sincere apologies for this. I will rectify this immediately. Again sorry for the confusion, and you will no longer receive any communications from us, corporate or otherwise, moving forward." Well, we've heard that more than once already and still we received additional spam. We're not holding our breath but we're nicer than we should be and will give these amateurs just ONE more chance to stop their spamming - one more chance than they rightfully deserve - before submitting a formal complaint to the UKGC. 32 Red, you're on your final warning.
The news keeps on coming: 32 Red's company (Kindred Group) has been fined SEK 100 million ($9.5 million!) by the Swedish Gambling Authority (SGA) for being in breach of the required gambling legislation. This fine comes after Spooniker Ltd (also part of Kindred Group) was found to be "offering customers financial incentives" outside the terms of their legal requirements. Naughty, Kindred Group. We doubt this is the last fine this group will receive, given their approach to business-ethics and treatment of players.
September 2020 update: Credit where it's due, we have not received any more spam from Kindred/32 Red since the latest update. However, 32 Red/Kindred is still very much a hot topic in advertiser/affiliate discussion forums where due funds and agreed contracts are being ripped up regularly by 32 Red, stealing money that is very much legitimately due. 32 Red and its parent company continue to bring shame into the online casino industry and it's a company we'd really like to see disappear from the gambling scene.
