Sports Markets and Betting Types
All the most common sports markets you would expect to find in a top-ranking sportsbook are well catered for; tennis, football, horse racing and cricket, for instance, are all present, as well a number of slightly more obscure markets such as the ÖTILLÖ SWIMRUN, e-sports and chess. There’s also an impressive selection of TV & novelty markets where you can wager on who you think will win the next Nobel Prize, who will win the Time Magazine Person of the Year and whether or not you think the Pound will outperform the Euro at the end of the financial year.
|The Most Popular Markets at Mr Green
||Asia Premier League
||ICC World Cup(w)
||International One Day
||Natwest T20 Blast
||The Rugby Championship
||The Open Championship
||Royal London One Day Cup
||U.S. PGA Championship
As far as betting options go, Mr Green do a good job of making sure all the main sports markets are well looked after. For football, for instance, punters can find well over 100 bets on the average Premier League fixture, some of which include Handicap markets, Asian Lines, and Half Time/Full Time markets. This is a good number by any standard, however when it comes to some of the other sports, the numbers are not so plentiful. Horse racing and greyhound racing markets are severely lacking, with greyhound races sometimes not made available every day. Also for tennis, golf, cricket and rugby, it is fair to say that you’ll only find an extensive range of betting markets for the most high-profile fixtures.
In-play Betting & Live Streaming
The Mr Green live betting arena boasts a slick, user-friendly platform with a fresh design and top functionality, and also some great in-play graphics that keep you right in the thick of the action when an event is taking place. Unfortunately, however, the operator does not support live streams, which is something they will have to improve if they want to be competing with the very best sportsbooks in the future.
Multiple Betting Options
Multiple betting options is an area where the operator doesn’t necessarily excel, but definitely provides a sufficient number of options so that all the slightly more experienced punters out there that like to play the numbers game are satisfied. To begin with, Mr Green only allow for a maximum of 12 selections to be added to the bet slip, which means that you’ll only be able to place accumulator bets of 12 folds. This means that multiples options such as the Lucky 15, the Lucky 31, the Trixie and the Yankee are all looked after. All your multiple betting options appear under the seperate System tab on your bet slip so that you can keep a clear track of all your bet types and see all of your potential returns displayed neatly at the bottom.
Bet & Win Limits
One area where the bookmaker reveals a slightly weaker hand is with its win limits. It must be said that we were slightly disappointed to discover that Mr Green cap their winning limits at NZ$100,000 – this includes tier-one levels sports such as football, tennis or horse racing where you would expect the numbers to be considerably higher. When you look at other operators such as William Hill and see that their limits go as high NZ$2,000,000 it becomes clear that Mr Green are lacking in this area and will need to make some improvements if they are to compete with the best.
Competitive Odds 7
Considering that Mr Green is relatively new to the world of online sports betting they have had a fair amount of catching up to do – especially with regard to odds levels, where the competition tends to be fierce. Fortunately, though, they’ve done well and slashed their numbers and put themselves on par with some of the more established operators in the business.
Odds Levels for the Largest Sports Markets
- Cricket90.22 - 93.98%
- Boxing90.87 - 95.01%
- Tennis91.05 - 93.01%
- Ice Hockey88.10 - 92.70%
- Rugby92.05 - 95.11%
- Darts89.38 - 91.95%
- USA Football88.04 - 91.66%
- MMA/UFC93.64 - 94.98%
- Return to Player (%)
As can be seen in the table above, the payout prices for some of the main sports are lower than the industry leaders such as BetVictor, whose numbers for football of 93.5 – 98.0% and 95.7 – 98.0% respectively put them at the top of the leader board. However, for sports such as boxing and ice hockey Mr Green are well and truly up there. In short, there’s some really good value to be had here.
The Mr Green Platform 9
The Mr Green sportsbook platform is powered by one of the most inventive developing companies in the game in Kambi Group Plc, which naturally means that they can boast to having one of the most original, aesthetically pleasing user interfaces out there. Probably the most noticeable difference between this sportsbook and some of the others you’re perhaps more used to is the fresh, spacious layout. It is far less data-heavy than some of the more traditional sportsbooks that come with a lot more toolbars and drop-down menus that tend to make the page seem a lot more crowded. Here, only the most important betting highlights are displayed in neatly-arranged windows in the centre of the screen with some of the other betting highlights, as well as the sports markets menu, all displayed along the top.
To access the in-play arena you need only click on the Live Betting menu located next to the homepage tab. From here you’ll see all the fixtures currently underway at the top of screen and arranged by sport, with all the fixtures due to start later in the day further down the page. To reveal the full list of betting markets for a fixture click on the window showing the competitors on the left-hand side of the page and all available markets will appear in the middle part of the screen, along with the live infographic on the right hand-side. The live infographic is one of the more outstanding features of the Mr Green sportsbook and will be discussed in more detail in the Mr Green live betting review.
How to Place a Bet
After you’ve had a good look around the platform you’ll probably want to start placing a few wagers. Fortunately, the bet placement process here has been made as straight-forward as can be. All you need do to start the process is locate your desired fixture and click on the displayed odds price to the right. This will prompt your bet slip to pop up in the bottom-right corner, at which point the selection will be automatically added.
-  Make Your Selection(s)Click on the odds price displayed next to your desired bet(s) to make the selection(s).
-  Enter Your Stake AmountAll selections will be added to your bet slip where you can enter in the stake. Any multiple bet options will be displayed at the top.
-  Confirm Your Selection(s)Once you’re happy all the selection(s) have been added and the stake is correct, hit Place Bet to confirm the bet.
Once the selection appears on your slip the next step is to decide the amount you want to wager, type it into the stake box and then check the bet once more to make sure everything is how it should be. This is especially important when placing bets on live fixtures as the odds prices can change quickly; be sure to acknowledge the ‘Approve odds change’ notification that appears if there is a last minute fluctuation. Once you’re happy with the selection, hit the Place bet button to confirm the wager. Remember, all bets are final once they’ve been placed.

Helpful Customer Service 9
Mr Green have opened up a number of different avenues of communication so that you’re never left out in the dark when you’re experiencing difficulties with the sportsbook. The email address is listed in the table above and is always on hand to provide answers to the most common trouble shooting issues as well as some of the more technical queries. There’s also a telephone line and live chat customer support available 24/7, which is, by far, the most efficient form of support as there is a minimal wait time before you’re connected with an agent, and they tend to deal with the vast majority of issues in a fast and friendly manor.
Licensing Security & Responsible Gambling 9
As do all betting sites that want to distribute their products in the NZ market, Mr Green holds a full licence with the Gambling Commission. This means that the operator is fully regulated and tested for fairness so that you have every guarantee you’re receiving a legitimate service. The operator also carries a signed and stamped seal of approval from IBAS, which means that you’ll be able to receive proper legal representation should a dispute arise between yourself and Mr Green, and all their random number generators are audited by GLI.
When it comes to security, you really don’t have to worry about whether or not the operator has your best interests at heart. All their online services are protected by the well-known DigiCert company, which ensures that your personal details are never at risk in falling into the wrong hands.
Disappointing Bonus Points4
Now that we come to the bonus points department, it must be said that Mr Green is somewhat lacking here. With no live streaming service to speak of there are no extra points awarded here. The same goes for sports sponsorship, where the operator has no long-standing deals worthy of special attention.
- Live Streams.0/3
- Extra Markets.1/1
- Bonus Points.4
Regarding awards, the operator has plenty to its name, however, the vast majority have been awarded for its outstanding services in the online casino world. The only one that we can really acknowledge here is Socially Responsible Operator of the Year, won at the 2012 EGR awards, which means that we can award 2/2 here.
For extra markets, there operator performs well, so we can award the maximum one point from one. We can also award another one point in the bonus department, seem as though there is a decent-enough welcome bonus offer and a handful of other deals available.
Conclusion – Very Solid Online Betting
After going through our testing areas and having assessed all the positive points along with the bad, we can confirm that we are extremely pleased with Mr Green’s performance. There are undoubtedly some areas where we feel the operator can improve, particularly in the live stream and betting options department. For the most part, however, they managed to perform particularly well, especially when you consider that they’ve only just launched their sportsbook in the last 12 months.
