Mr Green Sportsbook Review – Fresh Markets in 2018
Established as a major casino brand in 2007, Mr Green has made an outstanding marketing move in late 2016 by introducing its own sportsbook section. Albeit still in the works, the Mr Green sportsbook engages punters with its outstandingly simple betting mechanics and easiness of navigation. When visiting the website, you will be greeted by promotional graphics and pictures, but you won’t find anything else – because you need to create an account.
The process of becoming a Punter in this Sportsbook
One of the first things you must do is to make an account. That didn’t sit too well with me, as I had to go through a variety of tedious sign-up procedures and an SMS phone verification process to be able to see any further website features or sports markets; something that is usually readily available at any other sportsbook. Here, if you want to see how your betting field would look, you would have to register.
Bear in mind that to complete your registration, you will need to have a valid phone number to which a verification SMS will be sent. If your number does not belong to anywhere else from the dropdown list, then you won’t be able to play. This can be considered as a drawback by some, but it is quite understandable, as the sportsbook itself is designed to be used only by people from allowed countries.Customer Service Live Chat Support?
You can get in touch with any customer service agents via live chat, telephone or e-mail. As reviewing pros, we always go straight for the live chat to check if the statement “available 24/7” rang true, and it did. Upon the deliberate asking of questions ranging from menial to difficult, Mr Green’s staff was more than capable and efficient in answering all of them in an understandable and polite manner.
The Mr Green Sportsbook Bonus is Just the Beginning
Mr Green sports gives all its newcomers the opportunity to benefit from a £20 free bet offer. Of course, one of the conditions for receiving this bonus is for the player to have made a deposit of £20 and to have wagered them on any sport with minimum odds of 4/5. To some, a single free bet might not seem like much, but it is something that will give a newly signed punter some advantage. In fact, there are a whole lot of different free bet bonuses which you can benefit from – check them out.The No Deposit Free Bet
This is perhaps the rarest type of free bet a player could obtain, and it is because it doesn’t require the deposit of any funds. The no-deposit bonus wager may be linked to an ongoing event or sports market; and in most cases, will have a time limit in which you would have to use it. Even when available the no-deposit free bet may only be released in a small number of countries. The best way to find out if you can benefit from it is to check the promotions page on a regular basis.The Formatted Free Wager
Different from the others, this type of bonus bet is granted to a player only when they have achieved a specific number of time-limited stages of betting. A punter needs to wager on every stage accumulating matching free bets, but until all the stages are complete, the player won’t be able to utilize their bonus. This is one of the most coveted free bet types of all, and usually comes with a variety of other requirements.A Qualifying Bet
Punters are granted this type of free bet if they have placed their wager on a specific scenario; for example, a hound wins the race with a specified distance; a designated basketball player scores during the game, etc. Should the person place their bets on those (or similar) outcomes, they will receive a qualifying free bet. Bear in mind that qualifying free bets are released whenever the sportsbook sees fit, and the time at which they may be claimed can be quite limited (usually they are available to major sporting events).
The Sports Markets You Can place Your Wagers on
Mr Green offers around 39 sports sections to choose from. Every single one of which may contain a variety of leagues/championships; however, only in the case of eSports there are different games. There, you will find tournaments on some of the most famous titles online, such as CS: GO, League of Legends, and Dota 2. For all sports markets check out our list below.American Football Australian rules, Badminton, Bandy, Baseball, Basketball, Beach Volley, Boxing Chess, Commonwealth Games, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, E-Sports, Floorball, Football, Gaelic Sports, Golf , Handball, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Motorsports, Mr Green Specials, Netball, Pesapallo, Politics , Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Surfing, TV & Novelty, Tennis, Trotting, UFC/MMA, Volleyball, WWE/Pro Wrestling, Winter Olympic Games, Winter Sports
Football is The Most Preferred Market
More than 50 leagues, tournaments, and championships are available under the football section. Naturally, it is the sport with the largest market roster everywhere, and that isn’t a surprise. Football (or soccer, depending on where you live) is defined as the most popular sport to be bet on, and it is why it will always be the top pick of every available online sportsbook, Mr Green included.The Sportsbook Betting Interface
When you log into your account, you will be able to navigate through a simple, yet enjoyable layout. Centered on the top of the page, is a strip with circled buttons for quick navigation. Most of those buttons will depict the most popular sports to bet on – football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, and baseball. While those titles don’t seem like much, you can find all other markets, by clicking on the far-right circle button “all sports”.What is the Bet Slip
The bet slip is a list situated in the bottom right corner of the sports section page, where you can have all your markets lined up by the types of bets you’ve made. For example, when you decide to make an accumulator bet or a system bet, you will have 3 sections in your bet slip designated “singles, combination, and system”. This allows any punters to place their bets in the scheme of their choice, without having to navigate through a variety of bothersome pages.Mr Green Sports Live Betting is Available
Albeit small, Mr Green’s live betting section is active and well. Most of the time, the title to be bet on in this section is tennis; although there is certainly a lot of in the sports list section to be populated by other games. It is worth to mention that although there isn’t a “live feed” of the game itself, there is a window to the right side of the screen that shows a real-time overview of the events that are occurring on the playing field.Mr Green Sports Live Betting is Available
It is no secret that punters everywhere prefer to see the odds in their favorite format. For example, decimal odds are the most preferred among online sportsbooks, but Mr Green gives you the opportunity to change that. You can do so by navigating to the second circle button from right to left, designated “settings”. When clicked on, you will find the option “odds format” which can be changed to decimal, fractional or American.Wager and Bet Functionality at Mr Green Sports
While you can place your wagers in the singles, combination and system sections of your bet slip, the Mr Green sportsbook offers a whole lot more. If you’re betting on a live game that has fluctuating odds, a notification button will appear saying “approve odds change?”. This is a great and nifty feature not present in most sports betting websites. Another invaluable element of the wager functions is the ability to “cash out “, which gives the punter to quit while they are ahead with a live-running accumulator bet.
Watch out for those Accumulator Bets
Make sure that when you bet on a market, you keep very careful track of your wagers. A very common mistake with online sports betting is when you usually make several single wagers on one event. Make sure you always confirm your bet every time after you have selected your line, because even overlooking for a tiny bit of time might place your collective wagers under an accumulator section in your bet slip!Testing the System Without Actually Betting
Some sportsbook brands do offer a “sports betting simulation mode” where punters can test out betting strategies; however, sports betting with play money isn’t a viable option at Mr Green. Meanwhile there haven’t been any news about developing a betting simulator, Mr Green is known for its history of constant self-improvement. It won’t come as a surprise to us if this sportsbook releases its own “practice” section where players can test out their own wagering systems.You Can Find the App Pretty Handy
When it comes to mobile accessibility, you will be more than happy to discover that the Mr Green app is readily available for download for both iOS (Apple) and Android-based devices. While the Apple logo icon would redirect you to the iTunes store, the android version of the application is downloadable from the sportsbook website since it has not been yet listed in Google’s Play Store. The application provided by Mr Green has both the casino and sportsbook section in it, so a person won’t have any trouble alternating between the two platforms.How is Mr Green Licensed
The company “Mr Green” itself is registered in accordance with Maltese law. All betting activity done on the website is done so under the licensing and regulation of the UK Gambling Commission, so punters can rest easy knowing that they are playing in a legitimate environment. The betting offers for the sportsbook are provided by a company called Kambi Malta Limited, also licensed in Malta.Some Countries are Banned from Placing Wagers Her Some of the countries prohibited from playing in Mr Green are Belgium, Bulgaria, Cambodia, most Islamic State countries, Cyprus, Republic of Congo, Georgia, Greece, Greenland, Japan, Hungary, Madagascar, Fiji, France, China, North Korea, South Korea, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Panama, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United States, Venezuela, and many others.

Just like many other online gambling establishments, Mr Green also has a list of banned countries. While the reason for the ban isn’t specified, it usually is because the laws of a specific country do not allow any type of online gambling. In some cases, a group of players from a specific country would exploit the bonus system (or any other flaw or aspect of the sportsbook platform) which in most cases results in a nation-wide ban.Depositing Money and Withdrawing Winnings
You can deposit money in your Mr Green via credit/debit card (VISA, MasterCard), Instadebit, Paysafecard, Skrill, and Bank transfer. If you have winnings you want to withdraw, you can always do that via bank transfer; however, you need to remember that e-wallet and debit/credit card methods are selectively available for different countries. The best way to find out your options, is to log in your account and navigate to the withdrawal section of your account.On the Way to the Top
Mr Green’s dedication to good sports betting business has most certainly reflected on their ability to make their platform better. The remarkable variety of sports and markets offered there is not a small feat to accomplish; especially for a sportsbook that has started in recent years. With time, the brand is sure to introduce a lot more features that will spark the interest of its punters and continue to provide them with a high-level sportsbook experience.
