Roy Richie Review
It’s great when a new sportsbook opens up and is accessible in Canada but Roy Richie have gone a step further from mere accessibility and given us great value from start to finish. You can actually get a welcome bonus here and that’s one good reason to pay them some attention but beyond that there is a lot to enjoy.
Thinking of signing up for an account? This is what you can look forward to.
The welcome deal at Roy Richie promises up to 100 Euros or currency equivalent and you can play here in CAD so that’s another positive bit of news. This is a 100% match on your first deposit with a 10 Euro entry level so you can get on board and try them out cheaply if you want to.
There are differing rollover terms across the world and for residents in Canada, these are set at the mid-range level of 8x but there are low qualifying odds of 1.60 and a rollover period of 90 days so this is balanced nicely. Please check all terms and conditions but this is a very positive start to any review.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
Occasionally with a new sportsbook we see a relatively small range of payment options but that certainly isn’t the case at Roy Richie where they have worked hard to get a good set of eWallets on board. Skrill and Neteller are here as to be expected but you can also access PaySafeCard, Przelewy 24, AstroPay, Trustly and Boletto.
Add in all the usual debit and credit cards and you should have more than one way in which to deposit to and withdraw from your account.
It’s early days for the bookmaker so there are no current promotions beyond that welcome offer. That’s fairly standard for a new operator who has given a bonus up front and it’s a situation that may well change in the future so stay tuned to see if there are any further updates.
The website here has quite a classic look and while this sort of thing is subjective, many would say that it’s an attractive looking site and one that draws you in. That’s good but what about its functionality?
This ticks several boxes too with everything appearing where you would expect it to be with current events in the centre of the page and all sports on the left. Aside from the popular events, those sports are listed in an A to Z order so you can find what you need very easily.
Help and support is clearly shown and you can link out to other Roy Richie sites via prominent buttons at the top so overall, this is another area where this new bookie scores well.
The live chat button appears throughout the website and you can access it via what is quite a prominent green button at the very bottom right. Roy Richie aim to be on hand 24 / 7 to answer your problems but if you don’t want to speak to a person in real time, you can do things a little more anonymously via email.
A set of FAQs are also provided and these are pretty comprehensive and overall this is a good range of options for any user.
Roy Richie cover a good spread of popular events and niche options in the following list.
Football, Tennis, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Baseball, Aussie Rules Football, Badminton, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Curling, Darts, Floorball, Gaelic Sports, Golf, Handball, MMA, Motor Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Pool, Speedway, Surfing, Table Tennis, Triathlon and Volleyball.
Specials markets are also available and these, like other bookies, will cover entertainment and politics whenever a big world event is taking place.Overall, that’s a really good mix and one that would surely appeal to players in Canada.
It will be some time before this bookmaker starts to appear on any of the odds comparison sites so if you want to check up on prices against their competitors then you will have to do this yourself. Fortunately, there are plenty of people on the web who have already done this for you and reports on prices here are very favourable.
Football and tennis are strong but across the board, Roy Richie will be up there with consistent value.
In Play Options
Live Betting is accessed by one of the very prominent buttons at the top of the sportsbook home page so click on this if you are a fan of in play. One thing that’s really noticeable when you first log on here is the choice of markets and you can easily find up to 50 different options, even on the most obscure football matches taking place on that particular day.
Football and tennis can dominate but there is a good spread of all Roy Richie markets so this is another big plus point for the organisation.
Mobile Betting and App
A mobile site has already been set up as a mini version of the main website. It has quite a lot of information on it but it is very quick to load and like the main portal it is very easy to navigate your way around.
This is going to be an important option if you want to access that list of live betting sites so it’s a good addition. At present, there is no separate app as of April 2017 but this would be a logical addition for a new bookmaker as the year develops.
Casino, Poker and Bingo
The sportsbook links out to Roy Richie’s casino via a button at the top of the home page and this is a relatively small section so far, mainly because there are just two software providers setting up the slots. However, NetEnt are here so you should find some familiar slots along with all the regular table games.
There is a live casino too with Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Hold em. Currently there are no separate sites for poker or bingo but this is something else that has the potential to be introduced in the future.Play Now
