Mr. Play Odds
Testing of the Mr. Play sportsbook found that the odds on offer are among the most competitive online today, with football fans in particular being well catered for. A betting margin of around 3.7% means that Mr. Play are almost on a par with the leading online bookmakers around today, with the sportsbook claiming to offer the “best odds of masses of betting markets”. Betting margins are also appealing when it comes to sports including tennis, cricket and golf, however, unlike other bookies, Mr. Play do not offer any best odds guaranteed promotions.
With live betting being hugely important at online sportsbooks today, Mr. Play have ensured that their dedicated in-play page is up to scratch. Betting on live events is possible when it comes to sports including football, tennis, basketball, cricket and golf, among others, on a daily basis at Mr. Play, with odds being updated consistently. Live betting markets are one of the first things in which punters will see upon entering the sportsbook, with punters being able to easily see what events are coming up in the near future too. Customers are also able to quickly see how long an event has left, making it easier to make predictions, whether it being a football team to score a late winner of a basketball team to take a game to overtime. Many in-play markets are accompanied by visually pleasing graphics and useful information, which only adds to the user experience. However, unlike an increasing number of online bookies, there is no form of live streaming available at Mr. Play, which is undoubtedly an area for improvement.
