New Bookmakers Reviews

MintBet Review

MintBet originate from an established bookmaker known as McBride Racing. They are an Irish company who therefore look to provide a good service to Ireland and the UK so we can now add them to the list of promising new UK betting sites.

Accessibility to the UK is important in the current betting climate but what else is on offer to entice us in?

MintBet Promotions

The only welcome offer of any kind is available on the casino side so it’s a case of looking beyond that. Naturally, that may well put off some potential customers but we think it is worth hanging around as there are some seriously good ongoing promos once you’ve got on board.

These offers also mainly cover our favourite sports so for football fans, there is a deal in first goal scorer markets that could boost your profits by up to 100% if your chosen player goes on to score the second and then the third goals. There is a Red Card refund promo which returns losing bets in the outright Premier League betting if your chosen team has a player sent off and, there is a general acca insurance covering all sports plus a best odds guarantee on UK and Irish Horse Racing.

Sporting Markets and Odds Value

Here is the full list of sporting markets available at MintBet as of February 2018.

American Football, Australian Rules Football, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, MMA, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Football, GAA Football, GAA Hurling. Golf, Greyhounds, Handball, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Tennis, Volleyball, Winter Sports.

It’s a comprehensive set of options and if we look very closely, only the really obscure options are missing. So, if you’re unlikely to miss chess or bowls but are keen on football and horse racing then you sound like a typical UK bettor so this is a good list.

As with most new bookmakers, it will be some time before MintBet appear on any odds comparison sites but by carrying out a quick check on some sample sports, they seem very competitive on football in particular and there are some regular price boosts that can lift that value even further.

We’re getting used to seeing a number of new bookmakers offering just debit and credit cards as a means of funding and MintBet have done the same. That will give most of us in the UK the chance of getting on board but it would surely help to expand a customer base if some eWallets were provided.

That may change in the future but for now, it’s a case of getting out the plastic.

You can’t miss the live chat button at MintBet as it’s always there, on the right hand edge of the page. This is the fastest way to get a reply and it’s the option that most UK customers like to use these days.

If you aren’t in a hurry or you just prefer something more anonymous, there is an email address for customer support. Overall it’s a fairly small list but it covers the most important options and it promises to be a fast and friendly service.


When a new bookmaker sets up it’s not always possible for them to offer a welcome deal. That will put off the ‘Bonus Hunters’ but as long as this is compensated for in other areas then it shouldn’t be a problem.

This is what we find at MintBet with a whole host of regular promotions providing value for the life of the account. Even for those that don’t take advantage of them, the regular prices are strong and there are regular enhanced odds deals to help them along.

In a sense, this is a no frills bookie but the core value is definitely here and that makes them worth looking into in terms of a sign up.
