Mr Green Sportsbook Review
Mr Green Casino and Sportsbook burst onto the scene way back in 2008, and today offers over 700 games, sports betting and live casino to entertain customers. The Mr. Green persona, an elusive, Great Gatsby like figure, aims to embody the type of customer using the website. The unique branding and theme conveyed across the site is strongly thought out and well executed, no doubt contributing to Mr Green’s rise as one of Europe’s larger bookmakers.
In 2016 the Mr Green Sportsbook launched in time for the Euros. Since this time, it’s grown to offer betting markets in nearly 40 sports including American Football, E-Sports and Darts besides the regular Horse Racing, Football and Boxing. Not only are many sports available to bet on, the bookmaker also consistently delivers a wide range of markets, price boosts and specials to provide depth to the experience. You can build your own accumulators across different sports and markets, giving you the change to win big with the right selections. In addition to this, there are some useful recommendations on the best value bets to place on the site and also a handy ‘Combi Spin’ button to help you choose your Acca bets. As a new customer, a £10 free bet token is available after placing your first £20 bet on any sport, an attractive proposition for any sports gambler. The selection of Promotions available at Mr Green is limited to BOG (Best Odds Guaranteed) on the Sportsbook, with the vast majority of Promos aimed at encouraging Sportsbook users into the online Casino.
The live sports betting section of Mr Green is comprehensive. A range of markets are offered with real time changing odds as games are played, with both pre and in-game match statistics shown on the right. Luckily these statistics are detailed enough for you to use during live betting, as unfortunately live streaming of events is not available. The selection of sports on which live betting is available is less than the pre-match betting markets.
The casino is the strongest area of the Mr Green website, which is unsurprising considering its been open for business for nearly 10 years at the time of writing. Hundreds of slots are on offer, in addition to the regular Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Poker. Evolution Gaming powers the Live Casino and so is par with the best in the industry for reliability and functionality. Various Deposit Match, Free Spins and Cash Prize promotions aim to keep punters playing long after sports betting has finished.
Usability of the Site
Mr Green has won a number of prestigious awards for the usability of it’s website over several years, and for good reason – it has a clear, streamlined, user-friendly interface with easy access to different areas of the site and a logical, intuitive layout. The homepage is the casino, implying Mr Green has more of an emphasis on casino gambling rather than the Sportsbook. It is however easy to navigate through to sports, with the menu breakdown at the top allowing you to go straight to your favourite sport, or see what Specials are on offer. It is mobile friendly, and is also available in App form on both Android and IOS for betting on the go. Always a big plus, the company is licensed in Malta and regulated by the UK Gambling Authority so you can trust that your money is securely protected. It also encourages responsible gambling through its “Green Gaming” initiative, allowing you to set weekly limits on your deposits and betting and has a strong support function with Live Chat available 24/7, telephone and email services.
In conclusion, Mr Green is an online casino turned Sports Bookmaker – and as a result, is geared more towards those who gamble online in the casino rather than on sports markets. This is reflected in both the initial sign up offer and regular email promotions not offering as much value to the customers as some competitor bookmakers and casinos. In addition, the real time odds for the major markets also offer less value that some of the major UK bookmakers that have a bigger emphasis on sports betting. The website and App are well built, and as a result are very enjoyable to use, and the branding conveyed by Mr Green is also a big positive that no doubt continues to attract new punters. In future, it would be great to see Mr Green improve its regular offers and promotions available on major sports in-line with the other major players in this industry.
