Mr. Green Casino Review
Mr. Green has novelty written all over it, not only in the name itself, but in its newness to online gamblers. The first version of Mr. Green, for Swedish online gamblers only, appeared in 2008. But it was not until 2012 that the casino, which by then had undergone extensive updates and improvements, started taking off as an international site. Today it is a popular destination in many European countries. Unfortunately, no one from the U.S. can play.
There is no way of mistaking this online casino for any other, because the virtually all green color scheme of the home page is a giveaway. Also, as soon as you log on, you come face to face with a casino character like no other, Mr. Green himself, dressed in all-green from head to toe, welcoming you to the casino and promising you a "gentlemanly" experience. The overdone theme may be a bit too corny for some people's tastes but, on the other hand, this casino goes out of its way to make you feel welcome.
Mr. Green is licensed in Malta. Although apparently not eCogra certified, there are other indications that the operation is legitimate, the games are fair, and your money is protected. Mr.Green has elected to use instant play only, non-downloadable software from several different companies, rather than rely on just one. However, all of the companies (like Microgaming and Betsoft, for example) are well known and respected in the online gaming business.
Another tip-off to the fairness of the games is the reported average payout of 97.4% for all games combined, which is excellent. The casino also shows that it cares about its players by encouraging them, via the "Green Gaming" program, to set personal weekly limits on what they can deposit, bet, and lose.
Lastly, even though, in 2008, Mr. Green was just a start-up business, it was rated the No. 1 online casino on the Internet World's Top 100 list. The casino was rated No. 1 again in 2009 and 2010. In 2012, Mr. Green Casino received the Socially Responsible Operator of the Year award from eGaming Review, and this year iGaming Awards named it Online Casino Operator of the Year.
Mr. Green is an accommodating host, welcoming you 24/7, with a tempting choice of over 240 games, plenty to suit the taste and budget of almost anyone. In fact, you don't even have to play for real money; if you wish, you can play any game for free. Whether your preference is slots, video poker, blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat, or another table or parlor game, you will find it here. But keep in mind that the preferred unit of currency in all games is the Euro. If you're feeling especially lucky, try for the multi-million Euro jackpot on one of the progressive machines like Cleopatra or Icy Wonder. Or, for the real casino experience, play blackjack, roulette, baccarat, or casino hold 'em with a live dealer.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Mr. Green Casino cannot be downloaded; it is available in the instant play flash version only. Most players should not find this a problem, and you dispense with the waiting time you would have otherwise. Banking is also quick and easy, and you should be able to use the same method for both deposit and withdrawal. However, Mr. Green does not offer as many different banking options as some other online casinos do.
If you need assistance, or have any questions, customer support in eight languages is available via email or phone, but only between 7 a.m. and 1 a.m. CET. (These are the hours for customer support currently listed on the casino's own website, but they may be working on extending them to 24/7, so double check.) The casino advertises that their customer service has a "personal touch." However, you might not get fast service, as the response time for emails can be as long as 24 hours.
New players from Cardschat.com receive a Welcome Bonus equal to 100% of their first deposit, up to a specified varying maximum (i.e., $150 or $250), plus either 10 or 20 free spins on a featured slot machine. The bonus is restricted to certain countries only, so double check. In addition, both the Welcome Bonus and the free spins have a 35x play through requirement for withdrawal. Only slots and parlor games qualify for meeting the play requirement for withdrawing the Welcome Bonus. Read the casino rules for the full details.
Mr. Green gives out loyalty rewards on an individual basis based on play. So keep checking your inbox to see exactly what extras—bonuses, free spins, slot and blackjack tournaments, special promotions, and the like—are being extended to you. VIP players earn additional rewards.
The casino holds weekly drawings, selecting 10 players at random for free casino credits to their accounts. Also, from time to time, you are allowed to try out a certain game for free, but still be able to win something.
Do you spend what feels like half your day on your smartphone but you never have time to sit in front of the computer? Mr. Green has taken you and all other busy people into consideration and made sure that you can play wherever you are at all times of the day and night. Instead of you having to match your schedule to the casino, the casino adapts to you. In addition, Mr. Green also uses game software from a number of different well-respected companies, so you and your device are safe, while also highly entertained. The fact that all bonuses and offers are also available through the mobile site is also a point in the casino’s favor.
As mentioned, Mr. Green uses innovative and constantly updated software to allow you to play from your mobile devices. What is more, there is no download needed – you just sign up for the website and play, regardless of whether you are an iPhone user or an Android fan. The graphics only aid the process of betting here, as Mr. Green has done its best to offer the same quality of graphics to its mobile site as to its standard website. Sparkling, brightly colored visuals help you see the games better and bet more easily.
Voted as one of the best three casinos currently operating online, this casino is something you have to take part in. Don’t get scared away by the low welcome bonuses because the constant loyalty and VIP bonuses more than make up for that. Considering that you can also play for free if you want, and the large huge range of games to choose from, you cannot ask for much else! Such an award-winning, socially aware online casino should not be missed!
