The Mr Green brand is incredibly polished these days and the package of both sports and online casino is one of the best in the business. The sportsbook has benefited massively from a more targeted approach toward this platform and now includes great sports, markets and even betting odds. It’s not perfect and the lack of promotions for sports bettors is a concern. We would also like to see a little more depth when it comes to horse racing, as this section was threadbare compared to some. All in all, we can see why it has won so many awards over the years as the Mr Green bandwagon continues to roll.
New customers with Mr Green residing in Canada may be able to claim free bets as a welcome bonus. The registration process involves entering an optional Mr Green bonus code. The Mr Green sports bonus comes in the form of two $25 free bets. The Mr Green sign up bonus is a 100% match bet bonus because the qualifying bet is for the same value as the bonus. Bettors must place a bet with a stake of $50 at odds of 1.80 (-1.25) or bigger as part of the wagering requirements. Any winnings from the free bets do not include the stake.
Existing customers located in Canada may be able to enjoy sports betting promotions. These offers are often sport-specific and are subject to an expiry date. At the time of writing there are no current sports betting promotions but this could change in the future. Registered customers can choose to receive information about sports promotions by email.
Existing customers with Mr Green residing in Canada may be able to earn weekly free bets as part of the Mr Green free bet club draw.
There is no formal VIP or loyalty programme but that doesn't mean that existing customers would not be able to enjoy the benefits of weekly price boosts, jackpot bets or even a match bet welcome bonus. In any case, there would still be value in some of the odds which could compensate for the lack of any Rewards.
‘Sports’ is the fourth option on the Mr Green main menu after ‘Casino’, ‘Jackpots’ and ‘LIVE Casino’. The sports Homepage displays the current Highlights and there is a search facility that can be used to locate a sport, league or team. The Popular menu displays the main sports betting events of the day. All Sports appear in an alphabetical list of which there are 37 at the time of the Mr Green review.
The most popular betting sports are the four main professional l and college sports in North America. Customers can bet on NFL games but also on the MLB, NBA and NHL. The global sports of football and tennis attract the next highest number of bets. The list includes other sports that are more popular in Europe, such as golf, rugby, snooker and darts. There is a full horse racing service.
In addition to the mainstream categories, bettors at Mr Green Canada can place wagers on Chess, esports, Politics and TV and Novelty Specials. There are also independent categories for the Olympic Games, Winter Olympics and Winter Sports.
The sports betting service with Mr Green Canada is enhanced by the following betting features:
Mr Green offers a live betting platform that features games in the most popular betting sports. There is potential for improvement because there is no live streaming or an animation of the progress of play. Live bettors have access to the latest score and match statistics. Mr Green suspends betting following a significant incident and post the latest odds after a short delay.
Players can choose to cash out existing bets during a live event. The qualifying bets are placed in pre-match markets or earlier in the live event. The purpose of cashing out bets is a known early payout before the bet expires. The cash out value depends on the odds and stake of the original bet and the market at the time of the request. The payout is based on how much the selected market currently matches the original bet
Jackpot Bets are akin to Daily Fantasy Sports and related to football, basketball and American Football. The bets include combinations of the correct score, 1X2 and Both Teams to Score. Syndicates can enter the competitions and there are rollover jackpot prizes. The number of selections in each bet ranges from three to 15, depending on the betting market.
Customers of Mr Green can deposit funds using debit and credit cards, Bank Transfer, e-Wallets and prepaid safe cards. There are no delays and transactions are free. The minimum deposit is $10 and the maximum deposit depends on the method and provider. The withdrawal options include basically the same payment methods buy they are subject to standard delays and service fees. The minimum withdrawal is $10 while maximum values vary for each method and provider.
First visitors to the Mr Green betting site and mobile app may find the layout slightly confusing. Navigation is not conventional but when members are familiar with the product, it becomes easier to use. The menu structure and search box makes locating an event seamless, using a few clicks and raps. The desktop website and mobile release soon become second nature despite being somewhat different to other online sportsbooks.
Mobile users can download the Mr Green app to Android and iPhone devices. The website can also be read on smartphones and tablets as long as the browser is correctly optimised. There are no mobile-only free bet offers but mobile customers can claim the standard welcome bonus and ongoing promotions for existing customers.
