Mr Rex Review
At this time, finding any reviews for Mr Rex is a difficult undertaking. We have tried our best but have not had much luck, which is likely because Mr Rex really is a brand-new sportsbook and online casino. This means that we were also not able to find any comments from actual customers, who already have experiences with this bookmaker.
Instead, we must look at the company behind the brand and Aspire Global International Ltd. is a reasonably well-known entity in the online gambling world. Over the years, they have launched many online casinos and sportsbooks, which gives them a good standing. More importantly, they are registered and licensed in Malta and additionally have a license from the UK Gambling Commission, which is notoriously strict.
Both licenses are also displayed on the Mr Rex homepage, which instils a level of trust when you visit this bookmaker.
In time, Mr Rex will have to be judged on its own merit, but we are confident that this is a well-regulated bookmaker, who provides a safe platform for your cricket betting.
Cricket betting and other sports
Since Mr Rex has a strong focus on European markets, the quick links at the top of the menu in the sportsbook only lead to European football leagues. You will have to scroll down the list of sports to find cricket betting options, though you are able to add cricket to your favourites once you have registered an account.
In any case, Mr Rex offered several cricket events to bet on at the time of our review, which included:
- Big Bash League
- The Ashes
- ICC T20 World Cup
- UAE T10 League
- Test Series International
We mostly found outright markets to bet on for these leagues, which is hardly surprising as they are almost all future events. Only the Test Series and the T10 League were currently going on, though pre-match betting was limited here as well. Once the matches go live, further markets will open up to allow for more varied cricket betting, which we could see for the Test Series.
The options at Mr Rex are solid and casual punters will be happy enough, but given that this bookmaker has a different focus, you are likely to find a greater variety of markets elsewhere.
Still, the odds are competitive here and if you are interested in betting on other sports, in particular football, tennis, horse racing or even table tennis, Mr Rex is worth your consideration.
Overall, the sportsbook is not as massive as that of many other bookmakers that have been around for longer. Then again, Mr Rex is still very new to the market and will likely expand in the future. They are doing quite well with what they are offering at this time, offering odds on a little more than a dozen sports as well as a range of eSports.
Live betting is available as well and a good choice when you are looking for more betting options. Experienced punters will quickly discover that the selection of markets here is far smaller than elsewhere, though.
Games and more
Mr Rex is not primarily a bookmaker. They focus more on online casino gambling, which is why the casino and live casino take prime positions in the menu. The casino offers hundreds of slots from well-known providers such as NetEnt, Play’n GO, Red Tiger, Wazdan, Blueprint Gaming, Microgaming and many others.
You can sort through the games alphabetically or according to provider, which is handy, but there are no other filter options beyond slots, classic slots and table games. If you are looking for jackpot games, you will have to do so manually. Alas, you will only be able to find smaller jackpots such as Divine Fortune, but not big ones such as Mega Moolah.
Live table games are supplied by developers such as Evolution Gaming, NetEnt and Microgaming. There is a solid game library available with a great choice of live tables. But Indian favourites such as Andar Bahar or Teen Patti are not part of the portfolio, which is not entirely surprising.
Still, the casino at Mr Rex is certainly worth checking out for some extra fun.
Bonuses and promotions
At Mr Rex, new customers can sign up and claim a sports welcome bonus or a casino welcome bonus. We’re mostly interested in the sports offer, which requires new customers to make a first deposit of at least €10 (or the currency equivalent) and a bet of at least €15 on any sport on odds of at least 2.0.
In return, you will receive a €10 free bet token, which you can use on any sport, though the total odds must be 1.8 or greater.
It is important to note that deposits made with PayPal, Paysafe, Neteller or Skrill are not eligible to claim this bonus.
The free bet token is valid for 14 days. As usual, the free bet value is not included in any returns.
Be sure to read the full bonus terms before claiming this offer. They are comprehensive, but not difficult and within industry standards.
If you are interested in the casino welcome bonus, you can look forward to a 100% deposit bonus of up to €200 (or the currency equivalent) and 100 free spins on Starburst. The wagering requirements for the welcome bonus or 35x the bonus amount. The free spins are only added after the third deposit (each of which must be a minimum of €20) and also have a wagering requirement of 35x.
Mr Rex also offers a loyalty program with seven tier that you automatically join once you sign up here. The different tiers come with welcome offers (when you reach each new tier), extra bonuses, higher deposit and cash out limits and much more. It is certainly worth checking out if you are a regular customer at Mr Rex.
When you scroll to the bottom of the screen, you will find a separate link for ‘Payments’, which takes you to a new page and all the deposit methods that are available at Mr Rex. This includes credit cards, bank transfers, instant banking, e-Wallets, and prepaid options. Since this is an international operator, you will find several services that are aimed at European customers, but Mr Rex also offers NetBanking and UPI payments as an option for customers from India.
When you click on each method, further information becomes available, though there is no separate page for withdrawals.
Unfortunately, the terms and conditions also don’t give many details about withdrawals or possible limits at Mr Rex, which does not mean that they don’t exist. You may have to contact customer services for further details.
Since this casino operates under UK gambling laws, you will need to follow strict requirements when going through the KYC process to have your ID verified. We recommend that you get that done before making your first withdrawal request.
The customer service team at Mr Rex is available between 08:00 CET and 00:00 CET, which is somewhat limited and not necessarily ideal when you are not located in Europe. This should still suffice for most people, who are unlikely to need customer service in the early morning.
You will be able to contact the team via email or live chat 7 days a week. Whilst some information is available on the homepage, there is no dedicated help or FAQ section, which would already supply us with useful information. We hope one will be added in the future as it is usually quite handy to have.
You are likely going to have to contact the support team at some point. Since they apparently believe in “C.A.R.E.” (Customers Are Really Everything), you should find the team responsive, helpful and professional. We couldn’t find anything suggesting the opposite, so you should be fine here.
Mr Rex comes with a classic design, which is quite classy. It is certainly much more elegant than anything else we have seen lately. We get a main menu that takes us to the different areas of this betting and gambling site, a list of sports on the left-hand side in the sportsbook, and various links to further sections at the bottom of the homepage.
Navigation is easy and intuitive. The layout is a classic one as well. The site looks professional and of high quality, though the design choices may not be for everyone. The main colours are orange and a white background and the font that is used throughout the site is elegant but not always easy to read.
We kind of liked it as it is a little different from what we usually get to see.
The mobile page is very similar in design, though a little more compact and very well adapted to the smaller screen size of mobile devices. The pages load quickly, and you get full access to all areas of the Mr Rex betting site.
There are no dedicated mobile apps for iOS or Android at this time.
We quite like Mr Rex. It is not exactly your typical sportsbook. Even the design choices indicate a focus on more classic online casino gambling, but it is solid if you are looking for some casual cricket betting, a good selection of casino games, a decent loyalty program and a safe operator. Often, bookmakers operating in India are only licensed in Curacao, which is not our favourite. Mr Rex is registered and licensed in Malta and comes with a UKGC license as well.
Whilst Mr Rex is still brand-new, these licenses and the operator behind the brand give us confidence that we are dealing with a reliable new bookmaker that you are safe to use. Of course, as with all new betting and gambling sites, they will have to prove themselves in time. We are certainly keeping an eye on them and are interested in hearing from actual customers who have experiences with them.
Until such time, you are more than welcome to check Mr Rex out yourself and let us know what you think.
