Mansion is a fairly familiar brand to many people inside and outside the world of online gambling, not least due to the various football clubs that it has sponsored or served as an official betting partner for since its 2007 establishment, including Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace.
MansionBet, though, only came to be in early 2018. Despite this, it’s fast developed a reputation as one of the places online to bet on all manner of popular sports.
It’s hard for sports bettors at MansionBet to argue that they aren’t treated well; there are some very tempting promos on offer here for the site’s new and seasoned members alike.
The highlights at the time of this review being written included:
Free bets for those joining the site
A bonus on a member’s first deposit
Daily free bets on certain competitions
In-play football aggregates
The ability to cash out open bets
It doesn’t matter whether you’re into relatively obscure sports or instead the top football leagues or tennis tournaments – MansionBet will more than cater to your preferences, with offerings like the below.
Football leagues and competitions including the Champions League, English Premier League, German Bundesliga and so many more
Horse racing in the UK, Ireland and abroad
Tennis, encompassing such leagues as Wimbledon, the Australian Open, ATP Munich, WTA Prague and Challenger Bordeaux
Cricket leagues like the Indian Premier League, County Championship One and Royal London One Day Cup
Virtual sports, greyhounds, basketball, darts, American football and so much more
While MansionBet members can – of course – bet on the outcome of sporting fixtures in the traditional fashion in advance of each given event taking place, there’s also a complete section of the site dedicated to in-play betting. This is the type of betting that entails attempting to predict the result of a fixture while the action is unfolding.
In-play betting has increasingly become a staple of the leading online sportsbooks, and much the same can be said of the option to bet via one’s mobile device. Smartphone users can reach a nicely optimised version of the site directly through their mobile browsers, or if they prefer, download the dedicated app. Either way, they can look forward to a well-organised and unfussy interface.
There aren’t many online gambling sites that strike the balance between graphical flair and the appealingly understated quite as well as MansionBet does. The site’s colour scheme combines a black background with white and red elements, which makes for a very presentable interface.
Navigation around the site is also straightforward, with everything laid out more-or-less where one would expect it to be, including links down a left-hand sidebar that enable you to quickly toggle between the various sports and competitions represented here.
As we touched on above, the Mansion brand’s sponsorships and partnerships with top football clubs have certainly helped to distinguish it from competitors down the years.
However, from a slightly more practically-minded perspective, it might be the ‘Reality Check’ feature that you will especially appreciate. This facility enables you to set the frequency at which you will be shown a Reality Check on the screen during your time on the site, thereby helping you to keep control over how much time and money you spend gambling online.
MansionBet definitely isn’t a place ‘just’ to bet on sports, despite what its name may seem to indicate. There’s actually a very comprehensive online casino section, for instance, which gives you literally hundreds of games to play including video slots, blackjack, roulette, live games and more.
Or what if you fancy betting on virtual sports, which is basically like gambling on the outcome of video-game football matches between your friends? Well in that case, you’ll be pleased to learn there’s an entire part of the site devoted to this as well.
We’ve definitely seen online sportsbooks that offer a broader assortment of payment methods to choose from than MansionBet. A lot of popular e-wallets are missing from the below list, but on the positive side, the most widely used Visa and MasterCard debit cards are covered.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Deposit|
As is customary among sports betting sites these days, if you wish to request a withdrawal from your account here, you will need to be suitably verified, so that the site is confident you are who you claim to be. The payout will also be made to the same payment method that you used to deposit.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Withdrawal|
|Visa Debit||Up to 10 days|
|MasterCard Debit||Up to 10 days|
|PayPal||Up to 10 days|
|Paysafecard||Up to 10 days|
|Fast Bank Transfer||Up to 10 days||Minimum£20|
In theory, MansionBet has some obvious limitations to its customer support offering. The site is only available in the single language of English, for example, and there isn’t even a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section.
Having said all of that, you’ll find that most of the obvious questions you could conceivably have are answered perfectly well by other pages of the site, such as the terms and conditions, deposit methods and withdrawal policy sections.
Even if you do have any lingering questions that require a response, the site makes it easy for you to get in touch. You can do so via the site’s social media pages on Facebook and Twitter, for instance, and can generally expect an answer within just a few hours.
Alternatively, there are both UK and international phone numbers that can be used, and an email address and a ‘live chat’ facility is also available – the latter during the hours of 9am and 11pm, UK time.
There’s unfortunately some bad news to share here for those who fancy having a flutter on their favourite sports via MansionBet from outside the UK: the site’s terms and conditions make clear that by accessing its services, you are confirming you are located in Great Britain.
Furthermore, those same terms and conditions state that the following areas are not to be considered part of Great Britain for such purposes:
Isle of Man
MansionBet combines the burgeoning reputation of the Mansion Group – as assisted by the brand’s frequent appearance on the shirts of prominent football clubs – with a genuinely very tidy and generously featured online sportsbook.
You’ve got plenty of sports, subcategories and leagues to choose from here when you fancy having a flutter, including both well-known and lesser-spotted options, and the site itself is classy-looking and straightforward to navigate. The huge complement of sportsbook-centric promotions and bonuses is another very compelling reason to sign up for an account here.
Finally, the site’s not solely about traditional sports betting, as the likes of its in-play, virtual sports and casino sections demonstrate.
Register at MansionBet today, and you’d be hard-pressed to be displeased with almost any aspect of what you find. It really is a very well-rounded package and a fine place to bet on sports online.
