MansionBet, belonging to the company Mansion, is considered to be one of the rising stars of the betting world alongside some of the more well known brands. From their past sponsorship of Premier League sides all the way through to their current state of operations, it certainly feels like they’ve put themselves on the map in a big way over the course of the last few years or so.
Our initial reaction to the product itself is that nothing is quite jumping out and grabbing our attention, with a relatively basic layout. With that being said the simplistic nature of the in-play setup is quite intriguing, which already leaves us wondering what the specifics could entail.
The range of sports on offer range from the unique to the stereotypical, and based on the site itself, they are as follows.
Football, horse racing, tennis, virtual sports, greyhounds, basketball, darts, American football, Aussie rules, bandy, badminton, baseball, boxing, cricket, cycling, E-Sports, floorball, futsal, Gaelic football, Gaelic hurling, golf, handball, ice hockey, MMA, motor racing, netball, rugby league, rugby union, snooker & pool, speedway, surfing, table tennis, volleyball, water polo and winter sports.
There are standard options in regards to singles, doubles and accumulators, but there are also some intriguing alternatives courtesy of Mansion. These include Add2Bet, YourBet and PulseBetting among others, with the former giving you the chance to add in extra selections after a bet has already been placed. With mobile betting and in-play permitted, too, some would argue it’s the full package.
The Acca Club also seems to be a feature that is growing in popularity with each and every passing week (probably because you get a £10 free bet every week), offering up the chance for cashback when you place multiples.
The main address for Mansion Europe Holdings Limited is over in Gibraltar, although the license that they currently hold is for the United Kingdom.
As is usually the case MansionBet offers you the opportunity to function under Fractional, Decimal or American odds, depending on which suits you best. The deposit amount remains consistent regardless of whether you’re with VISA, MasterCard, Maestro or pay be using PayPal, with a minimum of £10 and a maximum of £25,000.
The withdrawal amount goes up to a maximum of £100,000 with a withdraw time of around 48 hours. That isn’t the case with PayPal, though, which requires 2-5 working days before it goes through.
MansionBet has a relatively poor presence when it comes to social media, especially when you compare them to some of their rivals. They currently have 3,500 likes on their Facebook page, with 2,600 followers on Twitter. They are verified on neither platform. It also typically takes them a few hours to reply on Facebook, and there doesn’t seem to be an overwhelming amount of support on Twitter.
Upon signing up you’ll be required to provide your email address on the first page as well as your name, followed up by your mobile number on the next – as well as your address. In addition to the username, the default currency that they offer is GBP.
In conclusion, MansionBet feels like it’s going to be a player for quite some time. There are clearly some smart heads working behind the scenes in order to create a viable and intriguing alternative, as can be seen in some of their offers.
It may not be the prettiest from an outright visual standpoint, but if we’re speaking generally, then we’re fairly satisfied with MansionBet as we look ahead to the future of the betting industry.
Speaking of the future, the old school betting lovers out there may not be crazy for MansionBet given their tendency to throw some big, bright and colourful features in the direction of their punters on a regular basis. Even with that, though, it still feels like they could serve as a fun alternative if you’re someone who is set in their ways with the bookmaker you use.
