Even if you’re a seasoned user of online sportsbooks, there’s a good chance that you won’t have had a flutter before at Mrplay.com. That’s because the site only launched at the end of 2017, while its UK sportsbook didn’t go live until late 2019, so it’s fair to say Mrplay.com is still working hard to build brand recognition among online gamblers, in what is undoubtedly an intensely competitive field.
The Mrplay.com brand itself is owned by the Malta-incorporated company Marketplay LTD. Meanwhile, in Great Britain, AG Communications Limited operates the site’s games.
As one might expect given the sheer newness of the sportsbook part of the site, Mrplay.com’s promotions are still largely devoted to its online casino. Those casino-centric promos included, at the time of our visit to the site for this review, the likes of a hefty welcome bonus and a VIP scheme, which unfortunately did not give rewards for sports betting in any way.
As for the promos that were relevant to those gambling on sport here, the obligatory new-member free bet was offered, there was an accumulator-related promo, and... well, that was about it. Hopefully, this section of the site will see significant expansion from sports bettors’ point of view in future.
Here’s some better news – pretty much whatever you might want to bet on, you’ll probably be able to find an opportunity to do precisely that at Mrplay.com. At the time of us visiting to write this review, the available markets included the following:
Football, ranging from the Premier League to European tournaments
Horse racing across the UK, Ireland and internationally
Basketball in the UK, United States, Europe and other parts of the world
Tennis, including the likes of Wimbledon and the Australian Open
Ice hockey, encompassing the Champions Hockey League, NHL, Russian KHL and more
Not only is traditional betting possible at Mrplay.com – by which we mean, placing a bet on a particular outcome in advance of the sporting fixture in question taking place – but there are also many opportunities to gamble on an ‘in-play’ basis, as the action is happening.
Both types of betting can be enjoyed across Mrplay.com’s desktop and mobile sites alike. On the subject of the latter, by the way, there’s no official app for sports bettors to download – which means ‘on the go’ gambling here is just a case of heading directly to the mobile-optimised version of the site, via your smartphone’s web browser.
With its colour scheme combining blue, grey and white, there’s no doubt that Mrplay.com looks tasteful, even if it risks being a little too understated for its own good. Still, whether you’re using the desktop or mobile interface, you shouldn’t have many problems getting around, as everything’s fairly logically laid out.
With Mrplay.com still being so new, it hasn’t had much opportunity to make itself distinctive through quirky features. So for now, the biggest source of ‘added value’ for players here is probably the fact that they can use the same account to access a wealth of casino games elsewhere on the site, including the likes of video slots, roulette and blackjack games, and scratchcards.
After all, Mrplay.com has been a casino destination for longer than it has been a sports betting one. This is very much reflected in the more developed appearance of that part of the site – including the greater number of promos and the availability of both live and exclusive games.
As we mentioned above, a VIP scheme does technically exist on the site; however, at the time of this review being written, it was only of relevance to casino players. Nonetheless, we hope the programme will be expanded in future to reflect the recently expanded nature of the rest of the site.
Mrplay.com fares strongly as far as extra offerings are concerned. All that you need to do is click the ‘Casino’, ‘Live Casino’ or ‘Scratchcard’ options on the homepage, to be guided to different sections of the site enabling you to revel in such games as Starburst, Aztec Gold Megaways, European Roulette, Platinum VIP Blackjack Live, and many more.
The range of accepted payment methods that you can choose from as a Mrplay.com member is on a par with that we have seen on almost any other online sportsbook we have ever reviewed. Bear in mind that the site does reserve the right to charge fees; you’ll see details on these, if they apply, in the ‘cashier’ section.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Deposit|
|Bank Transfer||Instant||Minimum £10|
|SOFORT Banking||Instant||Minimum £10|
|Interac e-Transfer||Up to 24 hours||Minimum C$10|
|Wire Transfer||Up to 6 days||Minimum £10|
As is widely the case on gambling sites these days, Mrplay.com normally credits the withdrawal requests it approves to the original method the player used to deposit. Your authorisation or some other documentation may also be needed from time to time to process your cashout request.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Withdrawal|
|Visa Debit||6-8 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Mastercard Debit||6-8 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Bank Transfer||6-8 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Trustly||3 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Skrill 1-Tap||3 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Skrill||3 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Neteller||3 business days||£10-£7,000|
|ecoPayz||3 business days||£10-£7,000|
|PayPal||3 business days||£10-£7,000|
|Wire Transfer||6-8 business days||Maximum £7,000|
Mrplay.com seems determined to get members requiring help to seek it through its ‘live chat’ facility, as this is what it directs players towards on the ‘contact us’ page; support is available seven days a week, from 8am to 1am CET. There isn’t, unfortunately, any support email address or phone number publicised on the site.
Thankfully, though, the rest of the site – including the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section – is fairly informative, so you might not need to get in touch with the site team directly in any case. Oh, and it’s worth bearing in mind that the site can also be translated into any of five languages.
The site makes clear in its terms and conditions that its services and software are intended to be used by those based in the United Kingdom, and that if you use such services in an illegal manner, it will not be responsible for this.
In other words, it appears that if you access or use the site from any other jurisdiction, including in territories where gambling is against the law, you will be doing so at your own risk.
Mrplay.com is subject to licensing and regulation from various trusted bodies around the world, including:
The Malta Gaming Authority
The United Kingdom Gambling Commission
While by no means the perfect destination for sports betting enthusiasts, or at least, not yet – for which you can blame such drawbacks as insufficient sportsbook-oriented promos – Mrplay.com is otherwise a pretty solid and inoffensive place to bet. The range of sporting markets on offer is strong, for example, and the sportsbook is just one part of an impressive broader gambling site.
Open an account at Mrplay.com today, then, and you’ll be able to look forward to a fun time, even if the site still has some way to go to become an industry leader.
