When it comes to modern day bookmakers, many of them have launched as online casinos before deciding to shift over to the world of the sportsbook. That’s very much the case with Mr Green, which launched as a casino and earned a good reputation and then opened up their sportsbook. The launch of that was timed perfectly to ensure that they could work with the bettors interested in watching the European Championship in 2016.
The result of the manner in which the company launched also tells you a lot about what to expect from them, with the casino and live casino being the top of of the list for their offering. Their sportsbook might be relatively young but it’s still accomplished and well worth your time. Football is one of the key sports that they cover, as you’d imagine given the launch alongside the Euros, but the likes of tennis, horse racing and eSports well covered.
About Mr Green
Mr Green markets itself as “a casino playground” and it certainly is a fun place to play, if you can put up with the slightly sinister (is it just me who thinks that?) Mr Green! I’m not sure if it’s his green shirt and yellow tie, the bowler hat pulled down low or his resemblance to The Riddler from Batman, but there’s something about that guy that spooks me. Luckily he’s a fictitious creation and the Swedish-facing casino he fronts is an all-together friendlier, cuddlier and more trustworthy proposition.
Mr Green have a registered office in Malta, where they are licensed and regulated by the country’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority. Founded in 2008 they launched to the Swedish market first and now offer over 200 games, including great slots such as Scarface and Karate Pig, several variants of all the main casino table games, scratch cards, bingo, poker, video slots and progressive jackpots too.
Customer service is based in the UK and is available by phone, online contact form, live chat and email, between the hours of 7am and midnight. In our trials the operators were friendly if a little slow and the addition of 24/7 service would definitely be a bonus here.
Deposits can be made by the usual array of methods and the site is available in English, Swedish, Norwegian, Austrian, German, Finnish, Polish and Irish (though this affects the currency, not the language for any Irish-speakers out there who got sucked in by the Mr Green name).
Mr Green scooped awards at both the EGR 2012 and the 2013 International Gaming Awards and was voted the best casino in Sweden for five years in a row. Awards aren’t everything but our word is, so don’t be scared of Mr Green with his bad dress sense and sinister hat – come and frolic in his casino playground instead!
Mr Green Products
Hosted on Microgaming, Mr Green has been one of the most exciting new online casinos in the industry for quite some time. The site has quickly found its feet and can now boast a portfolio matching any of the bigger players in the industry. Granted, a lot of this is to do with their affiliation with Microgaming, but they utilise more games than most, especially the branded and franchised slots. The design of the site is a little different to the ‘norm’ as well, with a slick, modern approach. They work hard on creating a number of huge jackpots, with some being worth in excess of £1 million.
