Review of MansionBet
MansionBet have only been around since the beginning of 2018, so I personally have had less experience with them than with some of the bigger bookmakers. They seem to be fairly reliable when it comes to payouts but the brand are still very much in the position of needing to prove themselves to punters.
They offer an impressive array of sports markets and in-play options are decent, too, but it is perhaps a little disappointing that there is no live streaming service available. All in all, I can see little reason to opt for MansionBet over other, better-established bookmakers we’ve reviewed.

Licensing & Safety
- UKGC license
- Fairly well-known parent company
- MansionBet itself fairly unproven
- Medium risk rating
MansionBet is the online sportsbook brand of the wider Mansion Group and was only launched in early 2018. Like the vast majority of online betting and gaming companies, Mansion are headquartered and registered in Gibraltar and their offerings to customers outside of the UK are regulated by the Gibraltar government.
In order to legally serve customers within the UK, MansionBet hold a remote operating licence from the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC). The details of this licence are clearly posted on the MansionBet website and holding the licence should mean that the brand adheres to all of the standards of good practice required by the UKGC.
- MansionBet was launched by the Mansion Group in the early part of 2018 and as such has not yet developed an established reputation with punters, either in the positive or the negative.
- Mansion themselves have been in existence since 2003 and launched their first casino brand just one year later.
- The Mansion Group are affiliated with reputable responsible gambling organisation GamCare and are also members of IBAS. IBAS is an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service, approved by the Gambling Commission to provide informed and impartial adjudications on disputes that arise between licensed gambling operators and their customers.
- MansionBet still need to prove themselves within the sports betting industry before it’s possible to rate them as highly as other established bookmakers (e.g. Bet365 & Betvictor), when it comes to safety and trustworthiness.
- Mansion’s sponsorship deals with Premier League football clubs, including Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth at least suggest that the company is in good financial health.
Deposits & Withdrawals
- Able to deposit instantly
- Small range of payment options
- PayPal accepted
- Withdrawals take 2 days minimum
Note: MansionBet operate a withdrawal policy which states all payouts will take a minimum of 2 days to process plus the standard timeline of your chosen payment method… too long if you ask us. For better options check out our higher rated bookmakers.

- Good range of non-sports specials
Now that we’ve covered who MansionBet are and talked about getting money into and out of MansionBet accounts, let’s delve a little deeper into the day-to-day use of the site. A good place to start with that is by looking at what the bookie actually lets punters bet on. With MansionBet there are a good number of tournaments, events and markets offered for all of the following sports:
- American Football
- Aussie Rules
- Gaelic Football
- Horse Racing
- Ice Hockey
- Motor Racing
- Table Tennis
- Virtual Sports
- Water Polo
- Winter Sports
Whilst MansionBet are relative newcomers to the online sports betting industry, you wouldn’t know it to look at the range of sports markets they offer punters. The list of sports which they cater for is on a par with that offered by some of the biggest bookies around and includes both E-sports and virtual sports.
A good selection of live betting markets is provided for a number of sports, too, including football, tennis, cricket and even ice hockey. The best range of tournaments and competitions for which markets are available are for the more popular sports like football and horse racing, but lower profile sports are still reasonably well represented too.
Individual matches and events, even for the bigger sports, do unfortunately boast somewhat fewer overall markets than are available from some of the other major bookmakers. MansionBet do excel, however, when it comes to the range of special, non-sport markets on offer. The bookie’s selection of such bets encompasses a huge range of events and occurrences across the entertainment, celebrity and political fields.
- Dedicated in-play section
- Diverse range of sports
- Live scoring, stats & updates
- No live streaming
As is now expected of every online bookmaker, MansionBet do offer a range of live betting opportunities to their punters. In fact, there is a dedicated in-play section of the MansionBet website which can be accessed via a tab at the top of the home page.
Once you visit the in-play section of the site, you will see a list of the current in-play events arranged by sport. What that immediately reveals is that MansionBet provide in-play markets for an impressive array of sports, including smaller, less popular sports like handball and table tennis. A schedule of upcoming live events is also readily accessible and is really handy for planning future punting.
Once you’ve found the live event you wish to bet on, clicking on it takes you to MansionBet’s in-play interface. That interface presents all of the available live markets on the same page as an attractive live scoreboard and a graphic at the top right offering further stats and live updates from the event.
The ‘visualisation’ as they call it, where stats are shown, is a little confusing and takes some getting used to – options are small and stay on screen for only a short length of time.
There is one major weakness. That is that live streaming is entirely absent from the bookie’s offering, which is an issue when you consider that almost every other major bookmaker offers at least some degree of streaming service.
Bet365 are much stronger when it comes to live betting.
- Get 50% extra up to £50 on first deposit
- Minimum deposit £10
- Savage 6x wagering requirement on deposit + bonus amount
- Minimum odds 4/5 for wagering requirements
Before we sum up and round off our review of MansionBet, it’s worth taking a quick look at the company’s new customer offer. The welcome promotion gives punters the chance to get 50% extra added to their initial MansionBet deposit by following these simple steps:
- Head to the MansionBet website.
- Register a new MansionBet account by selecting ‘Join Now’.
- Make a first deposit of at least £10 using bonus code ‘MB50’.
- Your 50% bonus amount will be credited.
- Wager the total of the bonus amount and deposit at least six times (at odds of 4/5 or greater) to withdraw any associated winnings.
You’d have to be mental to sign up to any bonus with a 6x wagering requirement attached – check out bonus offers section for WAY better offers.
As one of the newer kids on the online sports betting block, MansionBet’s overall offering to punters is reasonable but not spectacular.
The firm are fully licensed as you would expect, and their parent company has a decent reputation for fairness and reliability in the gaming industry. Mansionbet themselves however were only founded in 2018 and are yet to prove themself to punters – hence our medium risk assessment.
Their offering, when it comes to markets available and quality of odds, is what you’d expect with a wide range of sports covered regardless of general popularity.
However they have some pretty big issues before they can compete with more established online bookmakers:
- Withdrawals are slow taking 2 days to process plus the standard time associated with your chosen method.
- They have less markets per event available than the bigger name bookmakers.
- They currently don’t offer any kind of live streaming. That’s in stark contrast to the majority of major bookmakers and is likely to disappoint many prospective punters.
- Whilst a 50% deposit bonus up to a maximum of £50 seems relatively generous at face value, the offer is subject to some pretty terrible wagering requirements… needing to bet the total of your deposit and bonus amount six times before withdrawal is possible, would mean that a punter has to wager at least £900 if they’re to benefit from the maximum £50 bonus.
The above problems make it impossible to recommend that any punter should try out MansionBet at this point in time. Instead we suggest you head over to our bookmaker reviews section and check out some high ranked options.
