MintBet Sportsbook and Casino is an Irish Owned online gaming suite that was established in March 2017 but its roots go back over 40 years. The company has evolved from the Irish track to retail and now online by McBride Racing who have teamed up with FSB Technology to offer this white label site.The site is fully licenced to take bets in the UK and is regulated by the Gambling Commision and in the Republic of Ireland regulated under the Betting Act 2015.
Mintbet has a cool authentic style, featuring a slick colour scheme and a layout that is both attractive and functional. The loading time is quick with not too much flashing images and pop ups. The site offers Sports betting, Casino, Live Casino and Virtual betting, however for this article I am focussing on casino.
The registration process is fast and efficient and you should be able to deposit and play immediately without much fuss. You can play many of the games for fun if you wish to try them out before depositing.
The casino’s presentation is free of clutter and simple to use on desktop and mobile platforms; different areas of the casino are arranged clearly in tabs, helping users navigate the website easily. There is Apps available in both iOS and Android.
The welcome bonus is generous, offering new members a 100% matched bonus up to £500 on the first deposit. This provides players with double the funds than they would otherwise have with which to explore the casino and try the vast variety of games available. The Welcome bonus has a churn rate of 35 times however should you wish to cancel the promotion early before using the bonus funds this is fine as you use your own cash first. The stake contribution of games varies and all the details can be found on the adjoining Terms and Conditions. It is also important to note the Welcome bonus is an opt-in bonus that can be found on the promotion pages where you use a slider to match from £10 up to £500.
Casino Bonuses, Rewards, Promotions
There are a couple of bonuses available for casino. You have a Game Of The Week which offers 10 free spins for every £25 staked this is awarded the following Monday up to a maximum of 50 free spins and there is a Magic Mondays 10% casino slots refund which is refunded on Tuesday. The VIP scheme provides members with a number of benefits. They will have a dedicated account manager to ensure a more personal level of service, while there is a monthly cashback system offering as much as £2000 in return each month (or equal to 10% of all losses). There is no ranking or gamification structure in place, but the VIP Mintclub still gives valuable incentive to keep returning to the site.

Deposit/Withdrawal Methods and Currencies
Mintbet Casino accepts a slightly smaller selection of payment methods for deposits and withdrawals than we would hope, Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro, and MasterCard are all accepted as are the ewallets Skrill and Neteller. This means Mintbet may appeal to a few less players that may prefer to transfer funds to casino accounts by PayPal or Paysafe. However I have been informed by the company that this is being looked into at present. Minimum deposits are £10, and the maximum are £500000. Mintbet takes payments in GBP and Euro only. Withdrawals are processed from 12-24 hours and can take 3-5 days for cards. Ewallets are processed from 12-24 hours however should be paid within 2 hours. The maximum that can be withdrawn is £100,000 in a 7 day period.
Mintbet’s customer support is fairly decent, in terms of the variety of contact options. Members can login and send a query through an online submission form or, they can use a dedicated email address instead. A live chat function is available too on the right side of the screen. Clicking on this will bring up a form, requesting a few key details. Fill these in and click the ‘chat’ button to initiate a conversation with a support agent. 24 hour live chat is not available and a phone number could not be located. There live chat runs from 9 am to midnight. Their agents were well informed and quick to respond, they only have English speaking agents which is understandable given their target markets. There is a FAQ section which deals with the most straightforward queries which can be found at the top of the homepage which can save time and energy.
The security on Mintbet Casino is great, so depositing with them is safe and secure. You can store your card details in your account to use any time you like, which is really handy. The site is SSL certified and your money is protected.
Whilst this site is fairly new it has progressed well and ticks most of the boxes, It has a substantial selection of high quality games and Live casino. It is extremely user friendly and we find it difficult to fault. The Welcome bonus is pretty impressive but there is room to improve on promotions to keep customers interested over a longer period.The layout is good so overall a great brand to try.
