RIZK REVIEW 2021 - BOOKMAKER RATING & SIGN UP BONUS

OUR OPINIONS ABOUT RIZK

  • Good sports book
  • Excellent live betting across many sports
  • Good extra features

Online-Betting Rating:

Rizk is a relatively new online betting site as they were formed in 2020 to offer sports betting and casino services.

So we are going to be looking around their website to see what they have on offer for UK customers in terms of sportsbook quality and odds.

We will be looking at some other key aspect in this Rizk bookmaker review as well, such as the type of features that they have on offer.

Promotions are a big part of online betting as well so we will be looking to see where things stand with a Rizk bonus code for any new players who want to do a Rizk sign up.

It is only the Rizk Sportsbook that we are going to look at for this review and not any other gaming platforms that they offer.

But we will be doing our usual digging through the services that they have on offer, to see what their bet variety and market coverage is like.

The other type of things that we will be examining includes the Rizk withdrawal times and any type of Rizk betting bonus promotions that may be running for not only new customers but for existing ones as well.

So this is an exciting look at a new bookmaker and we will jump straight into this Rizk review with a look at their sportsbook.

Rizk Betting markets and odds quality 7/10

Betting Markets

This Rizk UK review then will start with the sportsbook, really the backbone of the entire operation.

What are some of the immediate things that we are able to see when we land on their homepage?

Well, the layout is not the typical kind of one that you would expect to see at a bookmaker really.

That’s because there is no long list of sports filling up a left-hand driven menu at all.

There is a small menu instead and one of those will be a link to the Rizk Sportsbook.

A click on that will raise if they are not already some of the main sports action that is happening around the world.

Then the Rizk sportsbook is navigated, or filtered if you like, by icon buttons across the top of the screen.

So if you were looking for football only, tennis, ice hockey or whatever, then you would just click to see the current betting options available in that given sport.

Available at the Rizk bookmaker is naturally some live in-play betting. That is what is predominantly displayed in the main area of the screen.

So you do have to look around a little more to go and find those pre-match markets that you may want to get into.

On that main screen when you have clicked on a specific sport then the page will get split into sections.

For football betting at Rizk, for example, there will be a Live section, a Starting Soon section and then down underneath there will be markets filtered by the league (Premier League, EFL Cup, Bundesliga and so on).

So there is a bit of a different approach here in terms of how Rizk sports markets are presented. But it doesn’t take long to really get a grasp of what’s going on.

But for further examination of what they have on offer, we are going to take this Rizk Sportsbook Review a little deeper.

We will now look at some of the main sports areas to see what kind of betting variety that they are offering punters.

Before we proceed, we will state for punters that at the time of writing that no horse racing was available in the Rizk sportsbook.



Rizk Bonus

bonus

As it stands, it’s worth noting that for UK Customers there is currently no welcome bonus for the Rizk Sportsbook.

Rizk Football Betting Review

We didn’t really find that one sport was pushed more than others on the Rizk site.

Buy that we mean that at some bookmakers all you get predominantly displayed are football and horse racing options mostly.

Things were quite well balanced at Rizk. On the main home page of the sportsbook there were different competitions for football betting listed.

But we clicked on the Football icon to take a look at that section in more detail.

When doing so the football betting page was broken up into the different competitions as well as Live and Starting Soon sections.

Each of those sections could be collapsed if you didn’t want to look at them.

But a quicker way to get around was really just clicking a link to a specific button at the top of the page.

We hit the Premier League button to only have a look at the forthcoming matches from that particular league.

On average we saw around 120 different betting options for a Premier League fixture that was listed.

When you look at the main Premier League section then all that was presented for each game (along with the time of kick-off) was the match outrights.

So a further click was needed to get a bit deeper into the markets.

But still, offering more than 120 options on a game was a pretty appealing thing to see.

So what kind of bet variety for football betting did we happen to find at Rizk when we looked?

For a specific match (we looked at Arsenal v Chelsea) there was a Popular section at the top.

That was quite nice as along with the match outrights there was listed a 3-way handicap, Total Goals, Both Teams To Score, Draw No Bet and a whole bunch more.

A long way down the page from that there were other sections presented such as Asian, Team & Player, Intervals and Other.

We didn’t see anything too unique there in terms of bet variety, but with Asian Handicaps and Intervals (10-minute betting chunks of time) there was plenty to be enjoyed there.

Although navigation is a little different to get a handle on, there was a good football betting variety that we found.

We also saw live matches happening from right around the world, like Peru and Colombia.

There were also live eSports football matches covered. We will be exploring eSports at Rizk Uk a little further on in this bookmaker review.

So in summary, we were pleasantly surprised with a solid offering of football markets at Rizk.

Rizk Esports Betting Review

We have mentioned the buttons at the top of the Rizk sportsbook page to filter what you see by sports.

If you can’t see a sport there that you want, then there is a + button that you can hit to raise more disciplines.

We had to do that to have a look around at what eSports offerings there were in the Rizk Sportsbook.

When we could see it all we found League Of Legends, Starcraft, Dota 2 as well as some eSports football options.

So the initial coverage was pretty good and there were some excellent betting type options within matches as well.

We took a look at a Counter-Strike match and there were eight different markets available within that one match.

That included maps betting, correct score options as well as handicaps.

We did look at other games as well and was equally impressed by how much was going on across them.

So the Rizk eSports betting was excellent for variety and that does include in-play matches as well.

We feel that they will check a lot of boxes for punters in this arena.

Rizk North American sports

Another area in which we felt that the Risk sportsbook was good was in the coverage of North American sports.

We are talking about the big ones of the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL.

Looking in the American Football area there was excellent courage not only from the NFL but from College Football as well.

One live College match that we saw had 29 markets open for the excellent live betting.

For pre-match wagering on some of the big NFL matches, there was an average of around 60 markets that we could see for each game.

A lot of that was broken down in Quarters betting, but one of the big things that we enjoyed was the number of specials that were on offer.

In NFL betting in Rizk sports, we saw tremendous variety on things like Highest Scoring Quarter, Results and Totals including overtime as well as handicaps including overtime.

There was a lot of betting variety there which immediately stood out and it was not just limited to the NFL.

Most of the NBA matches that were coming up had at least 30 different bet types available to have a look at.

But the basketball coverage also extended very well to the Europa League where there was always a comparable amount of bet variety on offer.

Looking a little deeper at the basketball coverage in the Rizk sportsbook, they broke things down into domestic leagues extremely well for matches from Spain, Italy and so on.

While the NHL was in-between seasons when we looked, Ice Hockey betting coverage was still very good.

Matches from around the world, like Russia and Finland, had an average of about 30 betting options available.

Rizk Novelty Markets Review

There is a Specials section at Rizk which offers an alternative to sports betting.

When we looked at this section in the sportsbook for this Rizk bookmaker review, we saw mostly political markets.

The UK political scene was heavily covered there from the Number Of Seats won at the next election to next party leaders.

US politics as well were available and they have a search selection to see if any options exist from other countries.

We didn’t see anything from the likes of TV and Entertainment worlds in the Rizk specials markets.

Not even things like Royals betting or any Christmas offers as this review was put together in December.

So while there are options there at least at the time of writing, there were only very limited options to browse through.

We have seen stronger Specials sections at different bookmakers.

Rizk Uk Summary

Following a Rizk login, what is the level of service like within their sportsbook?

Actually very good.

Most of the sports that we looked at for this review were actually covered very well in terms of variety so punters shouldn’t have a hard time finding even niche markets.

The lack of horse racing may be an issue for some punters, but for those who aren’t interested, there is still a lot of good sports betting to look through.

The navigation of the sportsbook is different from what you would normally find at most bookmakers.

But what Rizk has managed to do very well is clearly present everything.

The text on the screen is large and the feel of the boxes that are shown in the layout actually makes it feel a bit like a mobile app.

Later on in this Rizk sportsbook review, we will be taking a look at the layout and operation of the site.

But sticking to the quality of sports coverage and betting options that are there, it was good.

So we have already discovered in this Rizk Sportsbook review that there is a good bet variety.

They are operating a nice sportsbook, but what about the value of odds that are within those.

That’s really the telling point of any bookmaker and we need to try and look at margins.

By looking at bookmaker margins, that helps up to see where they stand in terms of value against other online betting sites.

We figured that the best place to start for this look at betting margins was in the Premier League.

For an Arsenal v Chelsea fixture, we saw an overall margin of around 6% in the match outright.

That was a pretty average margin across the board for the matches from the top tier.

Things, of course, fluctuate a bit. On a basketball 2-way outright market we saw around an average of a 7% margin.

So we thought overall that the bookie margins weren’t bad, just enough to remain competitive.

Rizk In-Play Betting

in-play

The in-play betting at Rizk is accessible straight from the main pages that you see presented.

Basically at the top of each sports page that you are looking at on the Rizk website, there will be live stuff there.

So if you are just on the overall sportsbook home page, in the main screen the top section will show some select live action.

If you were to then click through to some tennis or to the football section, again you would see at the top just the specific live in-play betting available for that sport.

Rizk does offer some nice options for in-play betting and just looking over any given match that is on offer, there are usually a lot of live markets that are available.

You can land on any of the major sports like football, American Football, cricket, darts, snooker, basketball and more and find live in-play betting options at Rizk.

There’s not actually a dedicated live betting portal as there is at some bookmakers.

But naturally, because this is an in-the-moment thing, those live markets are easily accessible at the top of the listing as mentioned.

That’s a good key thing when you want to jump quickly in the live markets and the platform for the live betting in the sportsbook is quick and responsive, which we liked.

Again, the presentation is very clear for live betting. Legibility is superb on the Rizk Uk sportsbook. That’s a huge plus.

There is a direct link to all LIVE betting across the top menu.

So overall there is a great, solid platform and that does translate over well to the mobile platforms as well.

Next for this Rizk sportsbook review, we are going to be looking a little more in-depth as some of the big in-play betting areas of the sportsbook.

In-Play Football

We looked at a slightly obscure game from Argentina for a look at the Rizk in-play football betting.

The first thing that jumped off the page was their very cool graphical representation window of the game.

Sat over on the right-hand column, the cool graphic showed the score, time and the action guide.

A picture of a football pitch with little pop-up markers on it showing the action areas were fantastic.

Those little markets showed things like Ball Safe or Attack, Throw In and so on.

There are little icons at the bottom of the football pitch so you can filter

Beneath that picture, there were standard statistics like the possession and percentage of attacks for each team, along with obvious things like off sides.

That will show the markers for any offside decisions in the game. This can be done with shots outside of the box, shots inside the box and more.

So it’s just another way to get a quick overall view of the action.

It’s a wonderful little graphic statistics tool that is there, a real highlight.

As for the markets in that were available for that particular fixture, deep into the second half there were around 20.

That was all of the usual stuff like Goals, correct score, Both Teams To Score, Double Chance and Totals.

In-Play eSports betting

We are going back for another look at eSports betting at Rizk, but this time in the in-play format.

But still, this is another part of the gaming betting that they do very well at.

We looked at the Counter-Strike, League Of Legends and more games and found in-play betting on a very wide range of markets.

Again we liked the statistics which were presented for live betting at Rizk and the coverage of live events was from around the world.

For a Counter-Strike live match that we looked at, there was plenty of good map betting markets in play.

Alongside that, there were other good active markets such as totals and handicaps to get stuck into.



Extras & features of Rizk

extras

For the next part of this Rizk review, we are going to take a look at some of the key features of the website that supplement the sportsbook.

These are features which we feel enhance the service even further and are perhaps even unique things in play at the bookmaker.

So next up in this Rizk UK review we are going to look at some of the features.

The first of those is a staple, which is the cash-out option.

There is cashout options available but note that they are not available on every market.

So you are going to have to look around and find the markets which do have it applied.

The bigger the event, the more chance that you are going to have of picking up the cash-out feature at Rizk.

That’s something of a basic requirement of a tool for modern-day sports betting.

We feel that the extras and features at Risk are perhaps a little thin in terms of availability than at other operators that we have looked at.

For example, live sports streaming is not there, and other features that some punters may enjoy like a Bet Builder, naming your own odds through requests and virtual betting are not there.

So at the end of the day, as it stands, Rizk offers their sportsbook. It is a straight forward, nicely operator’s sportsbook.

But for punters who would be hoping for a little more from bells and whistles and accessories may feel the service falls short there.

There is a Rizk Insider section on their website.

This is a feature that offers articles and insights into some of their insights into the Rizk promotions and guides to things like betting odds formats and building an accumulate.

One that we saw a lot of on the site was the Wheel Of Rizk feature. This, however, is nothing to do with the sportsbook, instead, it is solely a promotional feature for games on the site.



Rizk payment options - deposit and withdrawal methods

payments

Next, we are going to look at the Rizk payment options that there are available for punters to get their accounts funded.

They do offer credit card deposits, Skrill/Moneybookers, Neteller, Paysafecard, Trustly and Sofort.

After a Rizk login, you just need to click on the Deposit link and follow the steps for funding.

Just select the preferred payment method and amount. At this point, it’s worth noting that any future withdrawals made at Rizk should go back to the initial deposition method.

An exception there will be any deposits made to the Rizk account by Paysafecard. In that instance, a Bank Transfer payment will be required to make withdrawals after depositing through that method.

There is a minimum deposit amount of £10 on Rizk accounts. That should apply to any deposit method, but it’s always worth double-checking beforehand just to ensure nothing has changed at the time of making your deposit.

Deposit minimum amounts are displayed within the Deposit page after a Rizk login.

Rizk does not charge any deposit fees but checks with your bank or e-wallet because it’s possible that a charge could be made on that end.

Rizk Withdrawal Times

Clicking on your Balance will launch the payment portal at Rizk and from there a withdrawal can be done. Just enter the method and amount to activate.

There is a processing time of up to 24 hours on the Rizk end of things.

Then there will be time to wait depending on the method of withdrawal.

For example, an e-wallet withdrawal could be completed within 15 minutes to 24 hours once Rizk has released the funds, but a Bank Transfer could take up to 10 days.

So Rizk Withdrawal Times do vary.

As it stands UK customers are unable to cancel withdrawal transactions initiated at Rizk.



User-friendliness of Rizk website

user-friendliness

From an end-user point of view, the user-friendliness of the Rizzk website is very good. That’s because it’s clean and very simple to use.

The layout of the sportsbook is a little different. We have made mention of that already and it is a factor when you look at it.

It’s a boxed grid layout type of deal that Rizk have going for their sportsbook and navigation operates without the usual big sportsbook menu.

The main sports are listed by icons across the top of the page.

From there, we did find that usually, we had to do a bit of scrolling to get to the matches that we wanted to examine.

So on a big day of action when the football section is jam-packed with fixtures, the navigation may feel a little long-winded to some who are looking beyond the bigger markets.

But as a very big positive to the overall user-friendliness of the Rizk Uk experience, it’s very easy to read.

The text is big and therefore legibility is superb. Nothing is squashed together where things become hard to read.

The graphical representation of things in the live markets is so good.

The wealth of statistics and presentation is just great for a wide range of sports. It looks fantastic and packs a punch of usual info.

That was a very big feature that we liked about the website when we looked for the Rizk review.



Rizk Mobile App

app

As it stands there is no dedicated Rizk mobile app for the sportsbook.

But that, of course, doesn’t hinder players from accessing the Rizk sportsbook on mobile platforms.

In fact, the way that the Rizk website has been designed, it actually looks very good when accessed as a mobile website.

That’s because the boxed-format of the sportsbook already has a mobile-feel about it when you are looking at it on a computer.

So it is a smooth transition over to looking at the website on a mobile platform.

As we have mentioned in this Rizk boomer review, the sportsbook is driven through icons to get to the different sports.

That’s very mobile app-like as it is and things we found, scrolls nice and quickly when looked at on a mobile platform.

So basically nothing is lost in terms of operation and accessibility when moving between the full website and what is seen when looking at things on mobile.

It’s all just as easy to read and just quick to strike up a bet when needed.

Plus on the go, you get to keep in touch with the in-play betting opportunities that they have.



Rizk Customer Service & Support, Security & Reliability

customerservice

Through the left-hand menu, there is an option to get to Customer Care.

A click on that and it will open a new tab in your browser for access to the Rizk Help Centre.

There are frequently asked questions on that page immediately to browse through.

That will be common things like how to get a withdrawal and issues over performing a Rizk login.

On that Rizk help Centre page, there are also links to get in contact with their customer support team.

So this is great because everything is all in one place.

There are contact options of a Rizk live chat, email (with a typical response between 30-60 minutes or a customer can request a call back from them (typical response 15-60 minutes).

So there are plenty of good options there to explore in case you have any issues that you need help with.

There is a link right at the bottom of the sportsbook page to gain access to that Help Section as well.



Our Rizk review rating: 6 / 10

So to the overall conclusion for this Rizk bookmaker review.

Our overall Rizk opinion is that they are a good, enterprising option for sports betting that are worth visiting to check out.

Note that there is no Rizk welcome offer for the sportsbook side of things currently.

There are some elements that some punters may miss like a big suite of extra features and horse racing.

But solely concentrating on the Rizk sports that are there, things are pretty good.

So we give them a good a solid bookmaker rating because some things that we really enjoyed was decent bookmaker margins, excellent live in-play services and strong bet variety and market coverage.

Even though the layout of the sportsbook does offer something different, it works on both computer and mobile platforms well.
