One of the dangers of betting on jumps racing is that the backed horse could fall, be brought down or unseat the jockey. If any of these events happen the horse is out of the race and you have a losing bet. Jockeys are not allowed to remount so there are no second chances but Faller Insurance can provide some compensation.
Customers get their stake returned up to £25 in the form of a free bet if the backed horse falls, gets brought down or unseats the rider. Mansion Bet select the eligible meetings and there is usually one every day. The free bet must be used in one transaction and placed within 48 hours of being credited.
Mansion Bet offers free bets linked to specific sporting events across a number of sports. At the time of writing the one of the main betting events was the Australian Open, the first of the four Grand Slam tennis championships. The qualifying bets are five bets with a stake of £5 on any in-play matches in the Australian Open. The free bet can be earned each day of the Australian Open which takes place over two weeks and it must be used in a tennis market.
The free bet is valid for 7 days but only one free bet per customer each available each day. The qualifying bet must be placed using funds from the account and not a free bet. There should be similar offers for other sporting events.
The Mansion Bet sportsbook is an element of a site that also features a casino, live casino, Vegas games and virtual sports. Sports is the first option on the main menu on the Home page. Clicking this option takes users to the main sports page. Featured Links provide quick navigation to the main betting events of the day which cover several sports. There is also a list of sports starting with the most popular betting sorts followed by an alphabetical list of the other betting sports at Mansion Bet.
In total this operator offers odds on about 35 sports, including virtual sports and Specials. Football, horse racing and tennis appear prominently and outside the A-Z list. These three sports are the most popular for betting with Mansion Bet and here is more information about the leagues and markets on offer.
Football accounts for more than half of all bets placed online with Mansion Bet. The sport appears in the list of Featured Links and is the first option on the main sports menu. The football page displays the main upcoming matches including in the main European leagues. Top Leagues list the most popular betting leagues and the Leagues Lists displays each league covered in alphabetical order. Mansion Bet offers football betting for over 200 leagues and competitions form all five continents. The range of countries and leagues is one of the most comprehensive in the industry and few other online firms cover a wider selection of leagues.
By far the most popular betting football competition in the world is the English Premier League. The league has players and coaches from all over the world and fixtures are broadcast live on television in many countries. Mansion bet displays the match result three-way for upcoming matches in the Premier League with a link to the full range of markets, which total over 170. All the markets for any Premier League football match are presented in the following categories:
• All Markets
The three way match result market is compiled with a profit margin of 6% which is above average compared to the odds on offer with the established UK brands. The more exotic markets have a bigger percentage margin per option but this is also the case for Mansion Bets main UK competitors. Mansion Bet also offers outright betting for the main domestic leagues and upcoming international tournaments, such as the European Championship finals in 2020 and the 2024 World Cup. Overall Mansion Bet offers one of the best football betting services in the online bookmaking industry.
Horse racing is the second option on the Mansion Bet menu of sports which suggests it attracts a great deal of betting interest on the site. The horse racing page displays meetings from the UK and Ireland and some international fixtures. However, at the time of writing on the day there was no horse racing coverage from overseas.
Mansion Bet did offer ante post betting on major upcoming races in France, Australia, United States and UAE. Racing in Britain and Ireland is displayed under the headings of Today, Tomorrow and Future. The next 3 races are prominent on the racing page and some events appear in the Featured Links. Mansion Bet does not offer Best Odds Guaranteed on racing in the UK and Ireland.
Mansion Bet shows the name and conditions for each race, including the place terms which depend on the type of race and number of runners. Bettors are provided with the following information about each runner: number, colours, name, trainer, jockey, form, weight and age. The previous and current odds are displayed and customers place bets at the latest odds. Customers can place bets on the Unnamed Starting Price Favourite and the Unnamed Starting Price Second Favourite.
There is also the option to place Straight Forecast and Reverse Forecast bets. Depending on the number of selections the bet options include singles, multiples and system bets. There is also ante post betting on the major upcoming races at the Cheltenham Festival, Grand National and the Classics on the Flat. At the time of writing Mansion Bet did not offer non-runner/no bet on the major Cheltenham races.
Tennis betting is the third option on the Mansion Bet menu of sports which reflects the betting interest it attracts, both in pre-match and in-play markets. The day’s major matches are displayed prominently on the tennis main page. At the time of writing the Australian Open was taking place.
Mansion Bet shows the match result two-way market with a link to the related markets which total about 50. These additional markets are displayed under the headings of All Markets, Match, Set and Specials. The match winner is compiled with a margin of almost 6% which is lower than similar odds with UK competitors. The more exotic bets also have competitive margins which attract the professionals and big staking customers.
Mansion Bet offers tennis betting for matches in the four Grand Slams, the ATP and WTA tours, Challenger events and ITF tournaments. Tennis is also one of the most featured sports for in-play betting. In fact more tennis bets are taken during a match than before it has begun. The sport lends itself to in-play betting because of the fluctuations in the score and the odds. Mansion Bet offers ante post betting for the other three Grand Slam tournaments: French Open, Wimbledon and US Open. Overall, the operator’s coverage of tennis is varied and comprehensive and the sport is third only behind football and horse racing for prominence on the site. Some tennis events also appear in the Featured Links which makes navigation easier.
When this review was undertaken Mansion Bet had just launched a mobile betting app for the sportsbook and the casino is available as an iOS and Android app. The desktop version of the sportsbook is fit to work on mobile devices. All the functions are available using iOS, Android, Blackberry ands Window Phone devices.
In addition to their promotions and bonuses Mansion Bet offers customers the following bookmaker features:
Mansion Bet offers price boosts for major football fixtures that are generally broadcast live on television in the UK. The price boosts are mainly for matches in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup. For, example Manchester City were playing Burnley in the FA Cup at the time of writing. The price for Manchester City to win 3-0 or 4-0 was boosted from 7/4 to 11/4. This is a significant odds enhancement and there appeared to be no restrictions and the amount that could be staked. However, standard payout limits apply to ant market that has a price boost.
In-Play is the second option on the Mansion bet Home page main menu after Sports but before the other gaming products. Following the link takes users to a page that displays live betting events under the headings of Overview, Event View and Live Schedule. Many sports are covered for in-play betting including football, tennis, crocket and ice hockey. Mansion bet is rare in that the bookmaker covers in-play E-Sports events. The in-pay betting interface is not one of the best features of the site but all the most relevant scoring information is displayed. Betting is suspended after a significant event such as a goal in football or break of serve in tennis.
YourBet is Mansion Bet’s customised betting feature which allows customers more control of there multiple bets for one match. Customers can create their own multiple in combinations nor usually available in the regular betting for a football match.

Betting funds and bonus funds can be used for YourBet bets.
One of the developments in online betting in recent years is the Cash out option which replicated trading markets on a betting exchange. Mansion bet offers customers a cash out facility which allows ten to take control of their bets. Open bets can be cashed out so bettor5s have access to their returns before the end of an event. Bets can be cashed out in full or partially to guarantee a profit or limit a loss regardless of the final outcome of the qualifying fixture. The facility is available for pre-match and in-play bets over a number of sports including football and tennis. Cash out helps customers make a profit hen the odds move in favour of a bet due to events on the field.
Mansion Bet is a young betting site so banking methods are limited to debit cards and Paypal. More options are expected to become available as the site becomes established. In particular, other online bookmakers offer several e-Wallet solutions and the lack of banking options is a negative. Deposit limits can be set between £10 and £10,000. There are no deposit fees and transactions are immediate. The most that can be withdrawn in one day is £100,000 which is well within the needs of most customers. There is a 48 hour delay before funds are transferred to a customer’s account or Paypal balance.

As a relatively new operator Mansion Bet have not established a reputation, whether positive or negative. However, the Mansion Group has been regulated by the UK Gambling Commission since 2007 and in that time has developed casino sites that are trusted and reputable. Mansion Bet has gained a great deal of experience in online gaming and met the standards placed on the industry by the regulator. The software is secure and the company is a member of the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS) which deals with disputes between bookmakers and customers.
Mansion Bet is still in its infancy as a sports betting site and is competing with established UK brands that have been online for more than 15 years. There are several missing features that are found on other sites such as Best Odds Guaranteed and more banking methods. The company has more tan 10 years experience in online gaming so there should be improvements to come. The welcome offer and ongoing promotions are standard but the staking requirement for new customers is restrictive. Mansion Bet is developing so currently other operators offer more to their customers but on history and reputation the negatives will be addressed.
