In this review


Many modern sportsbooks are produced by specialist online casino operators who recognise the value of broadening their appeal to customers by adding sports betting to their platforms.

Mr Play is one such operator, but in this instance some care and thought has gone into the particular needs of sports bettors. One example of this is the provision of an attractive and simple Mr Play free bet offer to new customers. Once you have signed up – paying a 2.5 per cent fee to make a deposit into your new account – and placed your first wager of at least £10, you receive a free £10 bet token.

The Mr Play website is bright and sleek in design, with good functionality, and is extremely easy to switch between races and meetings for Mr Play horse racing punters. All meetings in the UK and Ireland, with a small selection of overseas racing are covered too and placing a bet could not be simpler, with your selection appearing instantly in a bet slip to the right of the page.

Each sports section, however, carries a long introduction to sports betting that is clearly targeted at a casino clientele and adds little to the experience for sports bettors. Mr Play set up its sportsbook as recently as 2019, so it’s perhaps not surprising that there are some omissions in its package. It’s a shame, for instance, that there is no native app to enjoy. You can access the website on a browser on your mobile, but the service can be laggy and slow to respond.

It would also be good to see more value-adds on the Mr Bet horse racing coverage, such as detailed form guides to races and the huge advantages conferred for punters by best odds guaranteed. Similarly, the addition of live streaming of horse racing would add considerable appeal to the site and make it more fun for punters to watch their selection in live action. There’s much to like about the Mr Play brand and current offering – let’s hope it expands its reach in the years to come.


  • Generous free bet bonus for new customers

  • Website is bright and sleek in design

  • No detailed form guides for horse racing

  • Some sections add little to the experience for sports bettors

Mr Play Free Bets and Bonus Codes

There’s no possibility of any confusion about the Mr Play sign up bonus. It really couldn’t be much simpler for new customers to get their hands on the welcome offer. All you need to do is deposit at least £10 in your new account and place a first bet of at least £10 at odds of evens or better.

Once that bet is settled, you’ll find a Mr Play free bet token for £15 in your account. You’ve then got up to 14 days to use that token. Because the free bet is triggered automatically by settlement of your first bet, there is no need to use any Mr Play bonus code.

Mr Play In Play Betting and Cash Out

Mr Play offers in-play betting on several sports, though sadly racing is not among them. However, Mr Play horse racing customers can take advantage of the Cash Out facility. If you feel for whatever reason that your single or multiple bet may not come off, you may be offered an amount to close it down early. You’ll find a Cash Out tab on your bet slip if it’s available on the wager in question.

Mr Play Real User Feedback

The most compelling Mr Play reviews focus on the quality of support received from the customer services department to players who had an issue that needed sorting out.

One reviewer told the following story: “I signed up for the free £10 bet and accidentally bet on odds of 1.7 when the opening offer started at odds of 2.0 or above to receive the free bet. I didn’t know why I hadn’t received the free bet and asked the chat. The chat was very helpful and explained why I hadn’t received the bet – then credited me with the free bet anyway, which was such a nice gesture.”

That story was echoed by another visitor, who reported: “Excellent customer service, speedy pay-out, great odds. What’s not to like! It’s a big thumbs-up from me.”

Excellent bookmaker: Easy to navigate website, friendly customer service, and easy to find matches and races you want to bet on.
