Mr Green Review
This well-known online casino has graced the internet for many years, offering players a number of exciting casino games; but Mr Green has recently decided to open up a sportsbook to accompany their online casino, and unlike some of their competitors the site is self-contained, which essentially means you don’t need different accounts for both.
The betting markets offered by Mr Green aren’t the most comprehensive in the world, but the company is continually adding new events, and as their popularity grows it’s likely we will see them branch into new markets as well, so keep an eye out.
For now, we’re going to take a look at some of the non-market specific elements of the site including the website itself, the features Mr Green offer, and the banking section.
Free Bet Club
Mr Green’s loyalty program is delivered in the form of a free bet club, and the best part is that there’s no opt-in necessary.
Just bet a minimum of £25 each week on accumulators (Mr Green class trebles and above as accumulators) and so long as one of the bets you place is worth combined minimum odds of at least 2/1, you’ll receive a free £5 bet before 7PM the following Friday.
Almost all bet types count, with the exception of Trixies, Patents, Yankees, Canadians, Heinz, and Super Heinz; and your qualifying bets could either be a single £25 bet or a combination of smaller bets. So, you could theoretically place 25X £1 bets and still qualify.
Although the free bet does come with wagering requirements attached it’s not a bad offer, and the majority of players tend to bet more than £25 over the course of a week anyway, so it’s a nice little addition to your online gambling activities.
The Mr Green Website
Mr Green is one of the best-looking online bookies around, and from the moment you land on the site you’ll notice how much effort and attention has gone in to building it.
Fast loading times, ease of use, a simple sign-up process, plus a huge range of betting markets makes Mr Green one of the more desirable online bookmakers around.
Below, we’re going to take a look at some of the main features and facilities of Mr Green’s website, and explain why so many people call it home when it comes to online betting.
In-play betting has seen a surge in popularity over recent years, encouraged by bookmakers heavily advertising their in-play betting options – the best example is perhaps Bet365’s adverts that air at half-time during football matches. In-play betting allows you access to a huge range of betting options you wouldn’t be able to take advantage of before a match, like ‘next team to score’ or ‘next team to receive a red card’.
Mr Green offer a fantastically diverse and reliable in-play betting service, which can be accessed by heading to the main navigation menu and clicking the ‘In-Play’ button. You will then be taken to an in-play overview screen where you’ll be able to view the current scores for some of the matches on offer, along with the odds and the ability to view even more markets.
What’s more, the in-play markets at Mr Green are available to mobile players too, so just because you’re using a phone or tablet you won’t miss out on the action.
Cash out is a fairly new innovation at online bookmakers that took off quickly, and it’s now available at virtually every bookie around. However, there can be big differences when looking at the prices offered by different bookies, and indeed the way in which their cash out function works.
First, let’s look at exactly what cash out is:
Cash out – known casually as cashing out – is the act of conceding the remainder of your bet to take a guaranteed profit as the bet stands.
For example, say you had a 6-fold accumulator on with a selection of football matches making up your selections. You have placed a £10 stake on the acca in total, and the potential return is £350. Now, let’s say that 5 out of the 6 teams had already won, and you really didn’t want to risk it all on one last match. In certain situations, bookmakers would give you the option to cash out, and you would sacrifice a small portion of your potential winnings in exchange for settling the bet there and then. If you chose that option, then the result of the last game would be irrelevant.
So say the last team to play were priced at odds of ½. That would value your current acca at around £150 and the bookie may offer you cash out for £110. Of course, you’re losing potential profit by doing so, but if your last selection went on to lose you wouldn’t receive a penny.
While cashout isn’t always the best option, it can be really useful when you’re happy with the profit you’ve already got and don’t want to risk everything on one last match.
Almost all markets are eligible including: Football, Snooker, Tennis, American Football, Baseball, Basketball, and more. Simply head to your bet slip and you’ll very likely see a ‘Cash Out’ button alongside a price. If you want to accept the price, click the cash out button and confirm and the money will be in your account right away.
Getting Started Guides
While virtually every online bookmaker features a selection of FAQ guides on their website, Mr Green takes things to the next level by offering one of the most comprehensive explanations of online gambling around.
Inside, they cover everything including the history of online bookmakers (reminding us of when placing singles wasn’t allowed), a step by step guide on how odds and probabilities work, and so on.
To find this wealth of knowledge, simply click the ‘Betting’ tab at the top left-hand side of your screen, and this will take you to an overview page where you can find the relevant sub-category you want to learn more about.
Mr Green have expanded their selection of payment methods recently, and you’ll find a ton of choice when it comes to funding and withdrawing from your account.
Below, we’ll look at some of the most popular deposit options along with the minimum and maximum deposits, plus the time it takes to be credited to your account.
OK, so that’s the deposit methods; now, let’s take a look at the withdrawal methods along with their minimums, maximums and withdrawal time frames:
|Bank transfer||£30||£100,000||1-3 days|
As you can see, there’s a pretty diverse range of payment methods for you to take advantage of, and whether you’re looking to place a small bet every once in a while, or you like to play religiously each day, Mr Green will offer a method suitable for you.
Note: The time column on the withdrawal table is the speed at which the funds reach your account after Mr Green have processed your withdrawal. You should allow 24 hours for your actual withdrawal request to be processed by the bookmaker.
