As mentioned in the header above, Rhino.bet is operated by Playbook Gaming Ltd and although other betting sites operated by the same company, such as Planet Sport Bet, offer betting across around 30 different sports, Rhino.bet falls short in this area by only listing around 20 at the time of writing this review. The majority of the sports that are absent at Rhino.bet most likely won’t be missed by most punters. For example, sports such as Badminton, Cycling, Gaelic sports, Handball, Politics and Volleyball are not available but how many people from the UK often bet on those sports? This somewhat goes in line with Rhino Bet’s statement on their ‘About Us’ page where they state:
‘ If you choose to bet with us, you may notice that we’re not afraid to do things a little differently. Our streamlined approach to coverage allows us to really focus on what matters to our customers. We’ve removed all the noise that most betting sites feel they have to create. Our approach allows our customers to bet on the most popular sports and the very best markets all supported with superior customer service supported by a fair and transparent rewards scheme.’
That’s fair enough from this new betting site as it allows them to focus on the sports and markets that their target customer base are most interested in and all of the most popular sports such as Football, Basketball, NFL, Cricket, Golf, Tennis, Horse Racing and others are available to bet on.
The range of betting markets at Rhino.bet is extensive, especially for top-level football matches, and along with all of the standard markets you’d expect to find, there are various ‘specials’ along with the option to create your own bet using their ‘Bet Builder’ feature.
Rhino Bet also doesn’t disappoint when it comes to value as their odds compare well against the likes of Unibet, Betfair and other top bookies.
A full list of available sports at Rhino Bet can be seen below.

Similar to their coverage of different sports, Rhino Bet have stripped down their offering on horse racing by only covering races from the UK and Ireland. This will suit most racing punters but if you bet on international racing regularly, there are other bookies out there which provide more extensive coverage of the sport such as Bet365 and Betfred.
A huge bonus for any racing punters who bet with Rhino Bet is that they offer Best Odds Guaranteed on all races. Simply place a bet on any horse from 10am on the day of the race up until the start time and if the Starting Price of your selection is greater than the price you took, your bet will be settled at the bigger odds should it win.

In-play betting is, as you would expect, available at Rhino Bet and accessible by clicking on the ‘IN PLAY’ tab in the main menu.
As Rhino provide betting across fewer sports than most bookies, you’ll find a reduced number of live events available to bet on compared to some of the bigger bookmakers. However, the most popular sports to bet on live, and all sports that are available to bet on pre-match, can be found in the in-play section.
In-play odds are relatively good and of a similar standard to Rhino Bet’s pre-match odds. There is no shortage of in-play betting markets either with several hundred betting options available for Premier League football matches.
Currently, live streaming is not provided by Rhino Bet. If you wish to stream sports live via your bookmaker accounts, recommend Bet365.
Customer support at Rhino Bet is available via email only. Unfortunately, live chat is not an available support option currently which is a slight disappointment.
Rhino Bet states that emails sent to the support team will be responded to within 72 hours although they are usually a lot quicker.

Although a mobile app is not available for Rhino Bet users, the website is fully optimised for mobile devices which means that you can access your account and bet on the move using your tablet or mobile phone by visiting the website using a mobile browser.
The Rhino Bet Casino is available to all customers and features around 200 different games. That number is significantly less than at many other online casinos or bookies that provide a casino product but they do have a reasonable selection of games that will satisfy most casual players.
We were pleasantly surprised to see many of the top slots available in the casino section such as Bonanza, Monopoly Megaways, Wolf Gold, Bigger Bass Bonanza, Sweet Bonanza and others. There are also various table and card games available including Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat.
Be sure to keep an eye out for promotions in the Rhino Casino as they often have free spin offers available and other bonuses for new & existing players.
A selection of live casino games is also available but like in the casino section, the variety is somewhat limited. However, you will find a large number of Blackjack tables available at various min & max stakes along with a reasonable number of live roulette and baccarat tables.
Rhino also provide a small selection of live Game Shows such as Mega Wheel, Mega Roulette and ONE Blackjack.
Customers at Rhino Bet can both deposit and withdraw from their accounts using the following methods:
Unfortunately, many popular banking options such as PayPal, Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard are not available and the selection is rather limited. However, if you mainly bank using debit cards then you won’t find this to be an issue.
Although Rhino Bet offers a stripped-down betting service, it does play in their favour somewhat. We like how they focus on the most popular sports rather than having a busy site full of sports that the vast majority don’t bet on. We were also impressed that they offer Best Odds Guaranteed on all racing and have a generous weekly Free Bet Club from which customers can receive a £10 free bet for placing bets throughout each week.
We would like to see more banking options available. In particular, the addition of some of the most used e-wallets. We’d also like to see a mobile app added along with a bigger catalogue of casino games.
All in all, we recommend Rhino Bet to anyone looking to bet with a new no-frills bookmaker.
