Mr Green Sponsors Celtic FC
November 6, 2017
Online casino and sportsbook operator Mr Green has announced a partnership with Scottish football champions Celtic FC. The firm will enjoy a visible presence around Celtic Park and plans to introduce some Celtic-themed content in the near future. This includes a Celtic slot game scheduled for release in 2018. Mr Green also intends to run special competitions with exclusive prizes such as matchday tickets and VIP trips to Celtic’s Lennoxtown training facility.
Last season Celtic were invincible after going unbeaten in 47 league and cup games, winning the treble in the process. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the ‘Lisbon Lions’ European Cup success and the Bhoys have recently broken their own 100 year old record by going 63 matches without defeat. To top it all off, the club has also been recognised with FIFA’s best fans award.
On social media, Celtic fans regularly sign off with the acronym ‘COYBIG’. This is short for ‘Come On You Bhoys In Green’, so it’s quite fitting that Mr Green has decided to strike up a partnership with the club
Mr Green Free Bet For New Customers
New sportsbook customers can pick up the Mr Green free bet offer. It’s an easy offer to claim, with a bet of £20 required to trigger the £10 free bet. As long as you use a credit or debit card to make your deposit and place the qualifying bet at odds of 4/5 (1.80) or greater, you’ll receive the free bet. You will then have seven days to use the free bet token on any Mr Green sportsbook selection.
It’s a generous incentive from the bookie. When betting in the traditional way, it gives you a bonus bet for an added chance of winning. However, when matched betting you can turn the promotion into an expected profit of around £7 with relative ease. You will need access to a betting exchange and the offer can be completed in two simple steps as follows.
Step 1 – By identifying a close match between Mr Green odds and the lay price for the same selection on a betting exchange, the qualifying loss can be greatly reduced. A lay bet is to bet that something won’t win, so you will be essentially covering both outcomes. Let’s say you spot a good match for Chelsea to win a football match with back odds of 1.80 and Betfair lay odds of 1.85. By entering these details into our matched betting calculator with a £20 stake, the advised lay bet would be £20 producing the following possible outcomes;
- Chelsea win; £36 return at Mr Green – £17 loss on Betfair = -£1
- Chelsea lose; £20 loss at Mr Green + £19 profit on Betfair (£20 – 5% commission) = £1
No matter what happens you will be down by £1 or to put it another way, you have saved £19 compared to qualifying for the free bet in the normal way.
Step 2 – Making a profit with the free bet is a very similar process. However, because you are no longer betting with your own money, a different calculator setting is used. This accounts for the fact that the free bet stake is not included in any returns. Let’s say you spot a good match on a Correct Score football bet with back odds of 9.50 and lay odds of 10.00. With a free bet stake of £10 the calculator will recommend a lay of £8.54, giving the following two possibilities;
- Bet wins; £85 return at Mr Green – £76.86 loss at Betfair = £8.14
- Bet loses; £0 profit/loss at Mr Green + £8.11 return at Betfair (£8.54 – 5% commission) = £8.11
Whatever the outcome of your free bet, you’ll come out with a profit. Taking into account your £1 qualifying loss, you would either make £7.14 or £7.11 in this example.
Mr Green Free Bet Club
Once you’ve taken advantage of the welcome offer, there’s an ongoing loyalty scheme that can be exploited too. You can claim a weekly £5 Mr Green free bet for placing £25 or more on accumulators. Just bet £25 or more on trebles or higher between Monday and Sunday to receive the free bet. The expected profit for this promotion is £3, which when completed weekly, adds up to over £150 per year.
This offer follows similar matched betting principles to those used on the signup offer but backing and laying accumulators requires a slightly more advanced approach. Therefore, it’s not recommended for beginners but anyone with a decent grasp of the money making concept can get involved. All of the resources needed to generate a profit can be found in the Matched Bets premium area.
Mr Green Casino Offers
An added bonus of holding a Mr Green account is the prospect of receiving special offers for the online casino. The operator may offer free spins or a cashback incentive to tempt you in. It goes without saying that you should take care when using any such offers and read the terms and conditions carefully before opting-in. Some of the casino promotions have good value and can be played for a minimal loss under the right circumstances. Reducing the house edge can make playing online casino games worthwhile and is a viable way to boost your matched betting earnings.
