Those who watch a lot of Premier League football will be familiar with the MansionBet brand. They are the current sponsors of AFC Bournemouth and have been for 5 years, they have also sponsored Tottenham Hotspur, Man City and Crystal Palace in the past. It therefore goes without saying that this is a good betting site for football especially, with some very good regular offers, features and giveaways.
MansionBet is the sportbook arm of the massive online casino heavyweight, Mansion Casino, founded in 2003 in the early days of online betting. The impressive resources available from this brand means that Mansion were able to launch a sports betting platform to rival those with many years already in the game from day one, and the strength of their promotions alongside their depth of market is proof of this.
There are over 30,000 live events to bet on each month spread across over 30 different sports, and this keeps live betting more interesting than almost anywhere else. The platform is run by SBTech too which doubles down on the quality live experience, and makes this a fantastic refined and stylish system that is easy to navigate and use.
Isn’t MansionBet Just a Casino?
It is best known as a casino, yes. It was quick to the draw too setting up in 2003 and going on to become one of the most well loved online casino’s in the country since then.
But if you are a sports bettor to the core then this shouldn’t put you off, if anything it has helped them to create such a fantastic sports betting package since they were well established enough to give it the proper amount of investment.
I will cover the sportsbook later, but as for the casino, it offers everything you would expect from such a longstanding player in the industry. Officially the casino is powered by Playtech so you know quality isn’t going to be an issue; the number of games in here is a curated selection rather than an entire collection dump, so you’re looking at less than 100 titles in all.
However, the Vegas section holds around 300 games from other providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, WMS, and 15 other providers. There is also a live casino from Evolution. The way the genres have been divided is actually really helpful for navigation, and you can further filter by provider which is always a bonus.
What About This Sportsbook Then?
Far from being a half-formed product tagged on to a successful casino, this is a high class sports betting platform that could be launched solo and still cause a stir.
There are plenty of offers that grab the attention for a start, both long term and offers of the moment. In the past we have seen plenty of insurance promotions, predictors, best odds guaranteed on all UK/Irish racing, beaten by a head, free to play games, acca boosts, and in-play football aggregates. That is a hefty promotions package and only a bookie with some serious weight behind it could afford to offer that lot all at once.
The sports on offer are an eclectic mix; MansionBet are big on their football as evidenced by the string of top flight UK teams they have sponsored past and present, but you can also bet on a lot of E-sports, futsal, and even kabaddi (check it out, it’s crazy stuff).
You’ll find football leagues from around 80 different countries including places like Zambia, Ecuador, Honduras – basically if a football is being kicked somewhere in the world you can probably bet on it at MansionBet.
Elsewhere market depth isn’t quite so thorough, but that is to be expected since football is by far the most popular betting market. Here’s an idea of what you might get from a few selected other sports, both niche and popular:
- Handball – 23 countries from Spain and Denmark to Belarus and Slovakia.
- Baseball – USA, Japan, Korea.
- Basketball – 17 countries including Lithuania, Turkey, and Mexico.
- Floorball – Finland, Sweden.
- Tennis – 18 countries including Uzbekistan, Egypt, Serbia.
- Motor Racing – Singapore, Spain, USA, International.
Anything major will be readily available and with plenty of markets too, but as you can see, even some of the more unexpected candidates are covered very widely indeed.
Being a site built on the SBTech sports betting platform means that MansionBet gain access to the best live in-play betting interface in the business in my opinion.
From availability of fixtures across a multitude of sports, to market depth, features and beyond, this platform has the lot.
Some of the best aspects are outlined below:
|Stats||Match stats are available in event view but there is a fully integrated pre-event stats tool covering all sports that goes into great detail.|
|Market Availability||You will find more available here more often than normal. Even niche sports like handball enjoy live coverage, as do Under 19’s leagues and the like.|
|Match Tracker||A multi-functional visual aid that displays live information using graphics, text, and timelines. A fantastic alternative to live streaming.|
|Live Streaming||Not currently available|
|Market Depth||Very good. As an example, a current Japanese J-League 2 game has 119 betting lines. For fixtures closer to home you can expect a lot more.|
|Bet Types||All the usual stuff plus Asian lines, handicaps, rest of match markets, and a few of their own concoctions.|
|Fast Markets||Bet on specific events occurring in the next 1-5 minutes and hold your breath.|
|Combo’s & Acca’s||These can be built and tailored directly from your bet slip after you have made your selections.|
|Cash Out||It wouldn’t be complete without cash out, and this is available on a lot of markets so you can lock in a profit or limit a loss as you see fit.|
As you can see it is a fully stocked package, the only thing missing is live streaming but many punters don’t feel that is a necessity anyway, especially if you are betting at home or from the pub where the game will no doubt be on anyway. Mobile bettors who are out and about might miss it, but the match tracker is a genuinely solid alternative.
Established back in 2003 Mansion are not a here today gone tomorrow brand, instead they are a highly ambitious, experienced and rooted betting and gaming company with their sights set on being one of the big boys of the future.
Initially known as a casino site, they have developed a high end SBTech powered sportsbook to run alongside that is better than many stand alone bookies. This is not just a brand for casino players who like the odd sports bet, it really is an all round gaming and betting site that even hardcore sports fans will appreciate.
Mansion are a Gibraltar based company founded by a group of private investors. From the outset the brand have been big sponsors of football and other sports; in 2006, only three years after their launch, Mansion sponsored Tottenham Hotspur in a £34M shirt deal. This was followed by shirt sponsorship deals with both Crystal Palace FC and AFC Bournemouth.
The company employ over 150 people and hold a full UK gambling licence.
If you are a massive sports bettor with specific requirements then Mansion may not satisfy all of your needs, there are some small areas for improvement, but for any typical punter who likes to bet and play games there are few that can match the all-round package from Mansion.
Support and Banking
Between 9am and 11pm UK time you can get in touch with the support agents via live chat, e-mail, or over the phone. This is a good service despite not being 24/7 as it covers the time that most sporting events will be going on, and thus the time that the majority of customers might need support. It also has to be said that staff are particularly knowledgeable and attentive compared to other brands.
In terms of your finances you are in luck as the withdrawal limits are high at £100,000 daily maximum – once more highlighting the benefits of betting with a well resourced bookie – and deposits start at just £10, again with high maximums.
You should be aware though that outside of debit/credit cards, Paypal, and Paysafecard, there isn’t a vast selection of payment methods. It will be fine for most punters but some people do have their reasons for sticking to certain methods like Skrill or Neteller that aren’t available here.
