MansionBet has been operating as a sportsbook since 2018 but the Mansion Group has over 15 years’ experience in online gaming. The parent company is based in Gibraltar and the brand is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
Over a relatively short spell, MansionBet has become a trusted operator that provides safe and secure sports betting and other gaming products. The signup offer is achievable within the timeframe and it sits alongside a generous package of ongoing promotions. Betting odds are generally about average but offer good value across about 30 sports. The brand has good banking and support procedures on PC and mobile platforms that provide good navigation.

New customers with MansionBet can claim £20 in free bets as part of a welcome offer. The qualifying deposit and bet is £10 or more after login. The initial bet activates a £5 free bet and on settlement customers are credited with three £5 free bets so £20 in total. The qualifying bets must be placed at combined odds of Evens or bigger in a multiple or 1/2 in a single or one leg of the multiple. There are no wagering requirements but any free bet expires after 7 days and any winnings do not include the stake. The free bets are activated by the MansionBet promo code which is entered during the registration process.
One of the major strengths of the MansionBet sportsbook is the extensive range of ongoing promotions and free bets. At the time of writing, existing customers with MansionBet benefitted from Premier League Brace Insurance, Faller Insurance, Acca Boost and Best Odds Guaranteed. These promotions are related to football and horse racing, which are the two most popular betting sports with customers in the UK. These offers are available to current players on a desktop computer and mobile platforms. They are subject to MansionBet’s specific and general Terms & Conditions and are easy to claim.
‘Promotions’ is one of the options on the main menu on the MansionBet homepage. Clicking this link takes users to free bets related to sports betting and the casino. Customers can claim from £10 to £25 in the form of free bets as part of sports-specific promotions.
‘Sports’ is the first option on the main menu. The page displays the current in-play betting events. There is a search box that can be used to locate a league or match. Betting Highlights list the main betting market events of the day. The list of sports includes horse racing, football, tennis and basketball. The other 25 betting sports are then shown in alphabetical order. In addition to mainstream sports, customers can place wagers on eSports, Virtual Sports and Politics.
MansionBet offers a comprehensive football betting service. The site features betting across over 100 leagues, in pre-match, in-play and outright winner markets. The most bet on competition is the English Premier League. The site displays the three-way match market for each fixture, with a link to about 180 related markets. Football is the most popular in-play sport and matches are enhanced by a visual representation of the progress of play and live match data. The Pulse Bet feature allows live bettors to place short term bets on events in the next 30 seconds and 1,5 and 10 minutes.
Horse racing is a core betting sport in the UK and the MansionBet betting site provides a good range of events and markets in this area. Customers can bet on UK and Irish fixtures, international meetings and overseas races. The racing service is enhanced by Best Odds Guaranteed on British and Irish racing. The Betting Slip is easy to complete and horse racing bets can be seamlessly placed. Live pictures are available once a qualifying bet has been placed.
The MansionBet in-play betting platform offers live events for several betting sports, including football and tennis. Live bettors can close a bet before expiry using the cash out facility. This option allows customers to take control of bets by guaranteeing a profit or limiting the loss, regardless of the outcome. The bookmaker takes down the odds after a key event, such as a goal in football or break of serve in tennis. The amended odds appear after a short delay so live betting continues.
MansionBet does not provide live streaming of sports events. However, customers have access to an animation of the action and live match data. The site does feature live coverage of horse racing in the UK and Ireland once customers place a qualifying bet.
