Mr Play advertises an up to £200 welcome bonus with 100 free spins, but don’t get sucked in like I did. The welcome bonus is actually split over the first three deposits, with a 100% up to £50 offer followed by two 50% up to £75 deposit matches. This makes it slightly less impressive than at first glance, but it’s still more than you can get at alternatives like Bally Casino or Voodoo Dreams.
I also enjoyed how Mr Play structures its free spins. I immediately received 20 free spins on Starburst after completing the first deposit, before receiving a further 20 spins on Starburst, Book of Dead and Legacy of Dead over the next four days. As a result, I enjoyed a nice variety and spread the fun over a few days rather than using all the free spins in one go.
Rialto Casino has a similar welcome bonus, although players can gain slightly more for their money with £300 in bonus funds and 200 free spins. However, this is where studying the terms and conditions comes in handy: by and large, Mr Play has slightly less restrictive clauses, so bear this in mind. Check below for a breakdown:
- £10 minimum deposit (£20 minimum for second and third payments)
- Bonus funds and free spins valid for 21 days
- 35x wagering requirement on bonus funds and free spins winnings
- Wagering requirements must be fulfilled within 21 days
- Maximum £100 real cash withdrawal from free spins
These terms and conditions are more favourable than other options on the market, with a smaller initial minimum deposit and wagering requirements than Rialto Casino. Mr Play also gives 21 days to use the bonus and fulfil the playthrough – much better than the seven days commonly offered elsewhere.
Moreover, where Rialto Casino limits withdrawable free spins winnings to a measly £25, Mr Play has a £100 limit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still not perfect. Clearing the 35x wagering requirement would take some work if you claim the full £200 bonus, requiring £7000 over 21 days. This isn’t feasible or responsible, so I suggest you take advantage of the welcome bonus as a way to familiarise yourself with the Mr Play platform rather than win any actual money.
I was a little disappointed by the small number of ongoing casino promotions. The operator promises regular offers on its website, but checking the “Promotions” tab doesn’t uncover many options. Here’s a basic rundown:
- Drops & Wins by Pragmatic Play
- Daily spin frenzy: Get up to 50 free spins for wagering £1,000
- Games Global Mega Madness: Potentially win a share of the £100,000 prize pool
- Ruby Play leaderboard: Win prizes as you climb the leaderboard
These ongoing Mr Play bonuses all require wagers to activate, with the daily spin frenzy particularly unrealistic and not very beneficial. Wagering £1,000 in one day is a lot, and only getting 50 free spins to show for it is disappointing. Sports betting fans will be happy to find a few more useful promos like odds boosts and free bets, but Mr Play can do better here overall.
