Pros

  • Simple good value “Welcome Bonus”
  • Competitive Odds
  • Responsive Customer Support
  • Specialist “Football” bookmaker

Cons

  • No live streaming “in play”
  • Relatively new so no history of trust worthiness

Betting options — good

Mr.Play has a huge range of sports for you to bet on, at time of writing some 30, including such specialist sports as “Bandy”. From their website they claim to focus on: 

“football, basketball, tennis, ice hockey, volleyball, horse racing, greyhounds, Aussie rules, badminton, baseball, boxing, cricket, cycling, darts, e-sports, American football, futsal, golf, handball, MMA, motor racing, rugby league, rugby union, snooker, pool, speedway, surfing, table tennis, and more.”

What is clear though is that Football is where Mr.Play has focused its attention.  It has matches from all around the World including from Nations which we have genuinely never seen before, you can bet anywhere from “Albania” to “Trinidad and Tobago” if there is a competitive football game taking place anywhere on the planet Mr.Play will have priced it up for you.  The layout is fairly standard, but why change a winning formula?  It is simple and practical to navigate and easy to get your bets on and know when they have been accepted.

Other sports are covered well but not to the same degree as football.  Horse racing, the UK's most popular sport to bet on has coverage from every meeting in the UK, and you can bet early price from the morning of the race on most occasions.

Football

Within each league or tournament, you shall find both match odds for individual games as well as outright bets (League Winner, Top Goal Scorer, etc). The markets for betting on a match are large and range from the standard correct scores, over/under, and Asian Handicaps to more creative and occasionally unique proposition bets such as “a player to hit the woodwork”, or “score from outside the box”.

The other sports coverage varies depending on the importance of the event, as to how much focus and attention, it gets, as well as how good the odds are and how high the limits are.  A Major Masters golf tournament will be better served than a lesser open invitational event.  The same formula is true across all of the sports. 

Live — normal

The majority of football matches have both in-play betting and the “Mr Play cash-out feature” available. Odds for live matches are updated extremely frequently but the over-round is higher than if you place the bets before kick-off.

Other bookmakers seem to manage to accept bets quicker and with less delay so this could be improved, but it is still at an acceptable level. There is no live streaming of games (Yet?) but you can sort of following along with a little graphic display of possession and the state of play, which helps keep you up to date with the action. 

Pros:
The age verification was automatic and the customer service are quick to sort any problems out.  Live chat took 3 minutes from start to finish to help me.
Cons:
The welcome bonus was not added automatically even though it said it would be.  But Live Chat added it for me to use with no problems.

About the bookmaker

Mr Play’s Sportsbook is incredibly new having been launched in late September 2019. However, it is linked to “Mr Play’s” casino, which has a degree of pedigree and has been around for a little longer, since in 2017 in fact.  The ultimate ownership of Mr Play is a bit of a grey area but the majority of it is owned and operated by Aspire Global, an iGaming platform provider founded in 2005. Aspire also provide technology and customer support. Mr Play is based in Malta.

It should be noted that Mr Play doesn’t provide every deposit method for making a payment but they have all the main ones; Visa and Mastercard, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, and Paysafe. The minimum deposit for all methods is £10 (slightly higher than the £5 minimum elsewhere), and all payments are processed instantly.  The only major gripe is that you are charged a fee for making credit card deposit of 2.5%, whilst not a lot in itself, it is something most places do not charge, and something to bear in mind if you withdraw and redeposit frequently.
