Online casinos have been entertaining people and giving them a shot at winning big for many years now. The best in the business have earned millions of customers around the world thanks to the quality of their products and the way that they treat their users. Mansion have been right at the top of the list of online casino providers for many years now and in 2018 decided to take the approach that has worked so well in that field to serve sports punters. Thus MansionBet was created but how good a job are they doing? That's what we'll be looking at in our MansionBet review.
Headquartered in Gibraltar, Mansion entered the online gambling industry in 2003 with the launch of a feature packed online casino. The Mansion Casino experienced pretty rapid growth in the company's early days as they followed a strategy of giving high rollers and casual players alike a top quality service with a touch of class.
The growth of the Mansion Casino gave the holding company, Mansion Ltd vindication that their approach was working and that they could continue to grow and reach new customers by expanding into other areas. They did this with the launch of new brands including Casino.com and Slots Heaven. MansionBet is the newest of the Mansion brands and is the sports betting arm of this ever expanding company.
MansionBet was launched in 2018. The weight of the Mansion name did a lot of good in terms of their marketing but they have never been a company to rest on their laurels so signed some pretty big sponsorship deals including with Premier League side Bournemouth.
MansionBet always knew that breaking into such a crowded marketplace as sports betting was going to be tough. Undeterred, they pushed on with their launch and are bullish about their chances of reaching an increased number of customers. To that end, they have put together a tempting welcome bonus worth up to £50.
To get your hands on the £50, you must first open a brand new account with MansionBet making sure to use the promo code MB50 . Then make a deposit into your new account of at least £10 and MansionBet will credit you with a bonus worth 50% of that first deposit up to a maximum of £50.
There are no qualifying bets required to get your hands on the MansionBet welcome bonus but you must wager the bonus six times (minimum odds 4/5) before it can be withdrawn. Full terms and conditions for the offer can be found on the Promotions page of the MansionBet website which is also where you'll find details of other offers including a £25 free bet for horse racing, the MansionBet Acca Boost and the latest Price Boosts which are constantly updated.
MansionBet have a wealth of experience in the gaming industry but they took the decision to partner with a specialist provider of sportsbook software for their move into sports betting. SBTech is the company they chose and between them they've produced a website which looks great and is easy to use.
The site is based on the same red, black and white color scheme that you'll find on the Mansion Casino. White text on a black and grey background isn't everybody's cup of tea but MansionBet do a good job of making the large amount of information available on their site very clear.
The layout of the site is the same as many of MansionBet's competitors which makes it a little tougher for them to genuinely stand out but significantly cuts down the amount of time it takes new customers to get to grips with the way the site works.
Signing a deal with a sportsbook provider has lessened the load in terms of personnel required by MasionBet. Rather than employing a big trading team, their reliance on a third party odds feed means they can offer a huge amount of markets on a comprehensive selection of sports.
The downside is that there is only so much MansionBet can do with the odds they provide. Thankfully, the general value found on their sportsbook is competitive and is complemented by MansionBet's regular odds boosts.
MansionBet don't currently offer live streaming.
SBTech are a very popular software provider amongst online betting companies for many reasons. The way their platform operates on mobile devices is right up there with the most important of those reasons as every company introducing a new sportsbook understands that mobile betting is no longer the future of sports betting, it's the present.
MansionBet's mobile betting options include a mobile site which works well on any size screen and is every bit as easy to use as their main desktop site and well designed apps which are well rated on both iOS and Android devices.
MansionBet offer their users a strong Cash Out product. As well as allowing punters to lock in a profit for bets long before the event is over, it provides a partial cash out option. This gives you the chance to take your stake out of a position whilst allowing the rest of the bet to run for example. A full list of applicable markets can be found on the MansionBet site but suffice to say it's a comprehensive selection including pre-event, in-play and multiples bets.
MansionBet provide their sportsbook services to users under a United Kingdom Gambling Commission Remote Operating licence. In order to ensure they don't fall foul of regulations, MansionBet must continue to prove that they keep their users safe, that they secure their personal and financial information and that they treat all users according to a fair set of terms and conditions.
