He’s certainly the smartest turned out guy on the block, the most dapper man about town. How does Mr Green stack up against his other colourful casino rivals? Let’s get into the review.
Licensed in Britain by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. The site was originally launched in 2008 by our Swedish friends, coming to the rest of Europe in 2012. Mr Green has been busy picking up awards ever since, with industry gongs for ‘casino operator of the year’ three years running. It’s easy to see why.
With the dude in the bowler hat and its deep green colour, there’s no confusing Mr Green with other online casinos. The site has a smart and sophisticated design throughout. Graphics and background are all sharp and polished and the layout is well organized and presented. There’s plenty to check out too, with sections for video and progressive jackpot slots, live casino, a sportsbook and even Keno!
A choice of bonuses
To get you into the game, Mr Green has a couple of welcome bonus offerings. There’s the 100% match bonus up to £100, plus you’ll get 100 extra spins on Starburst when you’ve played £20 in the casino. It doesn’t stop there. Over the next 5 days, there are another 20 Starburst spins per day, so that’s 200 spins in total. Sweet.
The deposit bonus has a 35x wagering requirement. Importantly, you need to use a debit or credit card for the first deposit as e-wallets are not eligible. That’s a tad disappointing as there’s a fee to pay to use a card.
Other need to knows – the bonus can only be used on slots, so no table games or video poker. Plus, there’s a £8 per spin round maximum. Make sure you check out the bonus terms online before you start playing as there’s a number of slots excluded from the bonus.
For fans of the live dealer tables, you can alternatively choose the Live Casino Second Chance Bonus. You need to make a minimum deposit of £20 and then wager it. If you win, excellent! If you’re unlucky you’ll receive 50% of your deposit back up to a maximum of £50. What’s cool is doesn’t require any wagering. Oh. . . you’ll also get the five days of 20 extra Starburst spins. With both offers, the spins are available for 7 days and require 35x wagering of any winnings.
Mr Green doesn’t really go to town with their other promotions. There are free spins giveaways, cash and various competitions but not quite the volume or variety you may find elsewhere.
They do have their Reel Thrill slots tournaments, which run every 15 minutes throughout the day. It’s your chance to take on other players via the leaderboard. Your score and overall position are calculated by your biggest percentage win over 20 spins. Prizes on offer include free spins and wager free cash.
Wide software selection on tap
The casino is powered by a wide collection of software providers including NetEnt, Microgaming/Quickspin, Thunderkick, Playtech, Yggdrasil and Betsoft. So you’ll find a regular mixture of exciting new titles plus your favourites such as Big Bad Wolf, Gonzo’s Quest and Flamebusters.
They also have a couple of branded slots, exclusively designed for them by NetEnt. There’s Mr Green’s Old Jolly Grand Tour of Europe, which has an old Victorian, ‘Around the World in Eighty Days’ feel to it. It plays well too, featuring tons of wilds in play. You can get wild re-spins, a multiplier wild or an expanding wild. Bring up three free spins scatter symbols and you’ll receive 10 free spins, featuring more wild winning opportunities.
Their other exclusive, Mr Green’s Moonlight, is also set in Victorian times. Mr Green has become a werewolf hunter on the streets of London, seeking to see avenge his fiancé’s untimely death. The slot features replicating moonlight wilds and a silver bullet bonus.
I enjoyed playing both titles. They have the same high-quality visuals you come to expect from Netent. Give them a spin after you sign-up.
Smart site navigation
In the main casino area, it’s easy to find the game you’re looking for. Everything is sorted into categories, with the main focus on video slots. Clicking a menu category presents all the games in a simple tiled format. So it’s a doddle to scroll through and pick a title. If you click the magnifying glass icon, you can access the useful game search function.
Hovering your mouse pointer over a particular game, pressing the ‘I’ icon gives you a little bit of detail about the title, plus the chance to try it out before playing with real money. I’d like to see further info available like ‘how to play’ and RTPs. There’s more tucked away in the ‘game rules’ link at the bottom of the site. However, I think it’s a bit incomplete and somewhat out of the way. Additional work needed here.
Apart from slots, all the other casino games you’d expect are all present. So you’ll find plenty of variations of Blackjack and Roulette. The latter you have to search for as it’s not featured on the main menu.
Wide-ranging live experience
Mr Green’s live casino is extensive, provided by a combination of Evolution Gaming and NetEnt. This means there’s loads of choice and tons of tables available. It’s mainly Blackjack and Roulette, but there’s also a couple of Poker and Baccarat tables.
There are approximately half a dozen exclusively branded Mr Green tables from Evolution’s studios. This brings a more personalized feel to live dealer gaming. I think it always benefits a site to have some dedicated tables for players.
Streaming was as expected on desktop. I’m not a fan of Adobe Flash as it can be buggy. So I personally would choose the NetEnt tables over Evolution when using a PC or Mac but your experience may be different. Using mobile devices I found no issues with either provider’s tables.
Mr Green’s Apple delight
Mr Green has a strong presence on mobile. On Apple IOS devices, it’s clear they’ve spent lots of time perfecting the experience. Everything is responsive, intuitive and well designed. There’s no lag on either Safari or the dedicated app. It’s as good as I’ve seen online.
Android isn’t quite to same very high standard. The graphics and icons look a tad less sharp and the design isn’t quite as on point as iOS. It’s perfectly playable but could do with a bit of tweaking.
Everything needed is to hand
Back on a desktop, all your various account, banking and support functions can be accessed from the upper part of the right-hand of your screen. You can see your balance and various notifications. If you press the Mr Green icon, a side-bar menu pops out. Here you can make deposits, withdrawals, see your history and access responsible gambling info and tools.
Checking out the banking. All the usual payment providers are available. So you’ll find Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal and PaySafe. One need to know, they charge a fee on card deposits of 2.5%. That makes using an e-wallet definitely recommended. Payout speed is solid. It took exactly 24 hours for my PayPal withdrawal to hit my account. I’m fine with that.
You can get one free withdrawal per week, anything more that will have a fee to pay. There are withdrawal maximums, meaning progressive jackpots will be paid in monthly instalments. Not great, so something to consider if you’re going after the big money prizes.
The responsible gambling tools are quite extensive, you can set daily, weekly or monthly deposit, loss or wagering limits. As well as limiting the amount of time you play. All part of what they call ‘Green Gaming’, that’s something to be applauded.
Site security is of an equally high standard. It uses SSL 128-bit encryption and covers the entire site. No worries there.
Support on tap
I’ve found customer support to be good. There’s a decent FAQ section where you browse by category or use the search to find answers. Customer services appear to be nice and friendly, certainly human and not robotic. Live chat did their best to be helpful but took a little while to find an answer to one issue I had. If you prefer, there’s the option to contact them via email since support is available around the clock.
No rewards or comp points appear to be available, a bit disappointing. I have found references via Google to VIP/High Roller programme but I can’t find anything specifically on the site at the moment. I will check this further and update when I’ve further news.
Odds on for sporting fans
Mr Green also have a full sportsbook available, with odds on all the big events in Football, Tennis, Golf, Cricket and more. Plus there’s the full UK and Irish horse racing meetings. They have a number of on-going sports promotions including enhanced accas, price boosts and daily race specials. Just like the casino, it’s all well presented and very simple to use.
Mr Green is cool and classy, one of the sharpest designed sites you’ll find. They have clearly focused on design creativity and blending everything together for a great player experience.
They have an excellent character based branding, range and quality of slots games. The live casino is better than most, including their own exclusive tables. Sports fan are well catered for and there’s even keno available!
The welcome bonus is pretty strong without sky-high wagering although there are a few restrictions to note. All the banking, account and support options you’ll need are present and customer support is dependable. It’s tough to find any real negatives bar a couple of minor quibbles. A few more ongoing bonuses and promotions would be good though.
Mr Green both looks the part and is a smart choice for your igaming. I consider them highly recommended and definitely worth signing up to here today.
