Mark Jarvis Betting
Mark Jarvis in an independent UK bookmaker established back in 1964 and currently has around 70 land-based betting shops in and around the Midlands and South Yorkshire. Following a deal with bookmaker Corbett Sports, Mark Jarvis was able to venture online and put their brand in front of a whole new audience.
Mark Jarvis is licenced by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC).
Horse racing is the main focus on the Mark Jarvis website but as you would expect, they offer betting across a number of sports and markets as well as offering customers an online casino, live casino virtual betting and lotto section.
Both pre-match and in-play betting is available on Mark Jarvis with current live events being accessed via the ‘In-Play’ tab. We were a little disappointed with the number of markets available compared to other bookmakers. Unfortunately, even for popular sports such as football, there seemed to be only the standard markets available and not the various additional markets such as corner, card and player betting which we see so much of now online. However, if you generally bet on the more popular markets then you may find this an advantage since there are not as many to navigate through to find your preferred bet.
Unfortunately, live streaming is not available on Mark Jarvis for any sports currently. This is slightly disappointing as we would have expected horse racing to be able to be streamed as well as a selection of football and tennis matches. Live streaming is available at a number of bookmakers these days and is a feature which attracts customers.
Mark Jarvis Free Bet & Promotions
Both new and existing customers can take advantage of a number of betting promotions at Mark Jarvis. Although the bookmaker may not match the number of offers at some of the bigger betting sites, there are still some to take note of.
For new customers, Mark Jarvis offers a £5 free bet if your first bet of £10 or more loses. This is a relatively good offer which does have value and should give punters a good enough reason to sign up and try the bookmaker out. No promo code is required to qualify for the free bet. Simply sign up, deposit & bet £10 with odds of evens (2.0) or greater and a £5 free bet will be credited if your bet loses. On top of the free bet, customers will also receive a £5 casino bonus. You’ll get this bonus regardless of whether or not your first bet wins and so it’s a nice addition to the welcome package. As expected, the casino bonus has wagering requirements and in this case, the bonus must be wagered 35 times. Casino bonuses may not excite every customer but it’s a chance of hitting a big win for nothing. The maximum profit you can make from your casino bonus is £500.
For those who enjoy a bet in-play, Mark Jarvis offers a ‘Free Bet Club’ where customers can receive a £5 free bet when they place 5 x £10 bets in-play. The in-play free bet club is available for bets on football, cricket, tennis, darts and rugby (union & league). Qualifying bets must be placed in-play between Monday and Sunday at odds of evens (2.0) or greater with the free bet being credited the following Monday. Once you receive your free bet, you can use it on any in-play sports market.
Being a bookmaker which puts a lot of focus on horse racing, it’s good to see Best Odds Guaranteed available across all UK & Irish horse racing. If you place a bet on an eligible race and the starting price of your selection is greater than the price you took, if your horse wins, Mark Jarvis will pay your bet out at the higher odds. Best Odds Guaranteed applies to bets placed between 10am & 10pm daily and the maximum payout for the additional winnings is £1,000 per bet.
There are various other promotions available at Mark Jarvis which are displayed on the promotions page.
You’ll also find a number of casino promotions such as ‘Wager £10 Get a £10 Bonus’ for new customers, ‘10% Cashback’ on Live Casino games and ‘Mobile Mania Wednesday’s’ where you can receive a £5 bonus when you wager £100.
Overall, the number and quality of betting offers at Mark Jarvis is acceptable and there should be something for everyone.
