Kick off with License and RegulationIt’s easy to find out all about the licensing situation at MansionBet and we only have to head down to the bottom of the home page. The license itself is held in Gibraltar, and the company is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Their third-party connection is IBAS, security is provided by Thawte, and in terms of responsible gambling, the company work closely with GamStop and GamCare. All of this information is shown clearly at the bottom of the homepage, and that’s a reassuring element of this MansionBet review.
About the Registration at MansionBetWhen the time came to register at MansionBet UK, it was a simple process. It all kicks off by clicking the ‘join now’ button, which is displayed in prominent green at the top right corner of the homepage. As you will see from the screenshot, the first page simply asks for basic information including name, date of birth and an email address. Complete that, and you head to page two where you fill in more detailed information such as your phone number and full address. Lastly, you have to set up your account preferences including username, password and deposit limits. Confirm that you’re not a robot and accept the terms and conditions. There are, therefore, three quick and simple steps, and the forms are identical to many that we’ve seen across the internet. As you may be able to see from the final screenshot, we have not had to provide ID straight away but the company state that this will be required once any player meets a certain financial level.

Options for Deposits and WithdrawalsThe company has a separate link to deposit options where you can note all of the methods that are available to you. This is a helpful service, and it lays all of the terms, including minimum amounts and timescale, in an easy to follow sequence. Unfortunately, the list at MansionBet UK is a little restricted but it’s hoped that you should have at least one way in which you can get on board. The list starts with debit and credit cards which most of us use, but if you need an eWallet to gain access, there are two further methods. Paysafecard is here as is PayPal. That’s not the widest list, and it’s an area that many would like to see improved, but the presence of PayPal is a bonus. They are the world’s largest eWallet and if you are one of the few people that don’t already hold an account there, signing up is really very easy and you can start playing at MansionBet in a matter of minutes.
Bonuses and PromotionsAnyone looking for a new sign up is always going to want to know about the offers and promotions that are up for grabs. As part of this MansionBet review, we need to go through them in detail as they are an important factor for any customer when it comes to making a decision. There is good news right away as the MansionBet sign up offer is a seriously generous one. It’s a 50% bonus on your first deposit, and the extra funds can climb all the way up to a maximum of £50.00. There is a MansionBet bonus code so remember to type it in when you come to making your first deposit. The positives continue as there are some generous deals up for grabs through the life of your account. Remember that these are always subject to change, but they will typically include a loyalty programme which rewards regular play with free bets, plus insurance deals on horse racing fallers and the big live televised football matches. There’s always something going on, and these promos just add some extra value to the regular competitive odds that you will find at MansionBet UK, so this is another big plus for the operator.
Betting MarketsIt’s great to have basic markets open, but this MansionBet review needs to delve deeper and find out what prop bets are available. This is where real value can be found at times, so how do MansionBet shape up? Football is always a great yardstick when we’re looking to assess the question of choice, and once again, the news is very positive. For the biggest football matches, MansionBet UK comes in with something close to 200 markets at a time when some bookies barely exceed 100. All of the regular options are here including result, BTTS, correct score and total goals. MansionBet also offer lots of options when it comes to Asian Handicaps and among their more unusual bets is the opportunity to take a double chance on a player to score either the first or last goal.
What Sports Does MansionBet OfferWe move on with this MansionBet review to take a look at the sporting options that are on offer. Choice is just as important as value, so we first need a wide set of sports on the roster, coupled with an extensive range of result betting and side bets too. Our conclusion is that this is another positive area for MansionBet UK. The good news for punters in Britain is that horse racing and greyhounds are here. With many operators banning anything on four legs, that’s a good start. Elsewhere, all the core sports are here, including tennis, golf and rugby and there is a good mix of niches including beach volleyball, cycling and pool.
A Guide on How to Place a BetIf you’ve ever placed a bet on any digital bookmaker’s site, then the process at MansionBet will be very familiar. Head to the list of available sports and find a market that you like the look of. A choice of prices will then be shown for the sporting event in question, so you click on your preference and a virtual betting slip will open in the top right-hand corner of the homepage. At this point, you will need to decide on the stake that you are comfortable with placing. If this is a single bet, simply type in a figure – e.g. £5.00 – and press the confirm button. If, however, you want to add more selections, then you just have to go back into the sportsbook and pick more bets in order to build an accumulator. You can also adjust the bet to use an Each Way pick if you prefer. It’s really very simple, and this is just another positive aspect of our MansionBet review.
Live Betting and Live StreamingThere is a separate section marked as In Play where you can access all of the current MansionBet live markets. There is a good selection with an emphasis on football, and you can still get an extensive set of markets and those same great odds. Perhaps the selection is wider elsewhere, but you should still be able to access all of the big sporting events so if your preference is for in play, you should still have a good home here. At the time of writing in early 2020, there are no live streaming options, but this situation could change in the future.
MansionBet on MobileWith a wide list of live betting opportunities comes the need to access an app. In fact, even if you don’t like to bet in play, you should still consider an app as it provides great flexibility. For iPhone users, just head to your app store and search for MansionBet. Click the ‘get’ button, and it will be on your phone, ready to use in a matter of seconds. The same goes for Android users. Both options are free, and the mobile app gives you the same great design and functionality as the main website. You can also use your existing MansionBet login details for added flexibility, and while there isn’t a special mobile offer, you can also take advantage of the regular MansionBet sign up offer if you haven’t already done so.

Is the Site Easy to Navigate?We all like to be able to access our favourite sports without wasting time, so the design and functionality question is another point to consider in this MansionBet review. You may not be concerned about the design, but it is a striking set up with classic back background and the red MansionBet logo. The colours actually make it easier to find the relevant sections and obviously that is important. As for those sections, they are all nicely laid out and very easy to find. Sports are in a logical order on the left hand side of the page with the most popular events at the top. Overall, this is another big positive for our MansionBet review.
Am I Safe and Secure?The question of safety and security is a big priority for customers. With personal and financial details being provided, they need to be safeguarded, and this MansionBet review needs to address the question. MansionBet has a helpful section at the bottom of their homepage, which addresses these questions in full. Marked as ‘Security and Privacy’, it explains how they use RSA 2048 bit encryption to keep your details safe from third parties. Do be sure to read this section in full as it is a comprehensive and reassuring addition to the MansionBet UK website.
What If I Need to Contact Customer Support?There is a MansionBet live chat service, but you have to be a customer and be logged on in order to access it. Not that this isn’t available 24 hours, and, in the UK, you will only be able to speak between 08:00 and 23:00. That’s still a big window and those hours also apply to the freephone telephone number that MansionBet provide. Finally, when you click on the contact button, you will also be provided with an email address, so there is a total of three ways in which you can access effective customer support.
- Ability to bet in-store
- Mobile App
- Variety of Markets
- Customer Care
- Easy Registration
- Bonus Offer
- Banking Options
- Loyalty Program
