Mr Play sister sites 2023
MillionPot used to be one of the top sites on the AG Communications Limited casino platform. That was quite a long time ago now. We don’t know what’s changed at MillionPot, but we suspect the answer to the question is “nothing” – and that’s the problem. The best of the Mr Play sister sites receive regular updates to their homepages to ensure that they’re still correct and relevant. MillionPot, on the other hand, has an advert for a monthly cashback and free spins promotion on its homepage. That promotion isn’t available at the casino anymore and hasn’t been for quite a long time. Another scrolling banner says that MillionPot offers over 900 casino games, which is several hundred short of the number of games that are actually available at the casino. All things told, MillionPot is a casino that’s fallen badly behind the times. It would take some considerable effort to get it back to where it used to be.
Some of the Mr Play sister sites are broader in their focus than others. Mr Play itself, for example, is a classic “jack of all trades” iGaming site, offering everything from slots to sports betting and quite a lot in between. Not every casino site wants or needs to offer such a wide range. There are millions of players out there who just want to play slots and are looking for a casino than can provide slots without trying to distract them with other gaming options. If you recognise yourself in that description, you’ll love 24Spin. The name is a shorthand description of what the casino is – it’s a slots site, and it’s open 24/7. If it’s slots you want, you’ll find more than thirteen hundred of them here. Just don’t expect much from the site’s promotions – they’re worth almost nothing.
Jambo Casino ought to be a place where AG Communications shows off the very best of its abilities. It should be superior to any of the other Mr Play sister sites. We say this because it has a unique advantage compared to all of the rest (except for one) – it’s fully owned by AG Communications Limited. The other casinos in the family are all white-label, so AG Communications has to bow to the wishes and whims of its paying partners when putting the casinos together. With Jambo Casino, it can do whatever it wants. From that, we can only assume that what it wants to do is build and maintain yet another template-based, run-of-the-mill casino site like so many others on its platform. The Jambo Casino welcome promotion is fairly generous at (up to) £200, but that’s the only thing that marks it out as above average.
Griffon Casino has a unique look and user interface compared to the other Mr Play sister sites. However, a unique design isn’t the only thing that’s required to create a great casino – and Griffon Casino doesn’t meet that description. Like MillionPot, the casino is out of date. There’s text on the homepage proclaiming that there are more than five hundred games in the Griffon Casino portfolio. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that all of the casinos on this platform actually offer more than 1300. For the promotional text to be so badly outdated suggests that regular maintenance isn’t carried out at Griffon Casino, and that’s a big red flag. We enjoy the theme, which takes inspiration from the myths and legends of the ancient Greeks, but we could use a sign of life from whoever’s responsible for keeping the casino ticking.
Mere moments ago, we mentioned that Jambo Casino was the only one of the Mr Play sister sites to be fully under AG Communications Limited’s control – except for one. Neptune Play is the one. Both casinos are well-dressed versions of the operator’s standard template, so it’s possible that both were created to give potential new white-label partners an idea of what can be done with the template to make it look attractive. If that’s the case, though, Neptune Play misses the mark. There’s nothing wrong with the banner graphic on the casino’s homepage, which features a high-quality digital art-style image of King Neptune himself, but everything else on the site looks plain. We’re not sure that Neptune Play is a casino that UK-based players ought to concern themselves with anyway; the site has recently shifted to listing the value of its welcome promotion in Euros and doesn’t seem overly interested in UK players anymore.
Barbados Casino looks like it was designed by someone who was trying to win a competition that invited people to come up with the worst possible concept for a site called “Barbados Casino.” That’s the only fathomable reason we can think of why anyone would think black and grey are appropriate colour choices for a casino site that uses a “dream vacation” theme. Yes, there’s an attractive Moana-style splash banner on the Barbados Casino homepage, but it’s a static image, and it’s the only token effort that the casino makes at creating either a theme or an atmosphere. Everything else at this iGaming site is as plain as plain could be. Even the welcome promotion at Barbados Casino manages to be lacklustre; it delivers one hundred free spins, but it delivers them without any matched deposit funds. So little effort has been put into this casino that almost all the other Mr Play sister sites are more deserving of custom.
The best thing we can say about Greenplay is that it has a strangely cute little robot mascot. The robot mascot appears on every single one of the banners that scroll across the Greenplay homepage and just about manages to give the site a sense of identity. We’re a little worried that this is yet another of the Mr Play sister sites that have stopped receiving meaningful updates, because it promotes the availability of nine hundred games on one of its banners. At the risk of repeating this too many times, the true number is at least four hundred higher. The Greenplay welcome promotion is also subpar; £25 as a matched deposit isn’t likely to entice people into giving the casino a try. We wish we could tell you why Greenplay is called Greenplay, but the only thing we can come up with is that its background colour is green. That seems like “effect” rather than “cause.”

Mr Play operator – AG Communications Limited
If you read our review of Mr Play (which can be found below), you’ll see us conclude that Mr Play might not be all it’s cracked up to be in terms of its overall quality. However, it’s still the standard that all of the Mr Play sister sites are judged against, as it’s generally seen as the flagship casino site of AG Communications. As such, it’s the flagship of a large fleet. There are more than sixty currently active casinos on this platform, and there used to be considerably more than that. With the exception of the two that we mentioned when we took a look at a few Mr Play sister sites at the top of this page, they’re all white-label casinos. Someone else paid for them to be made; AG Communications took the money, did the job, and then extended its UKGC licence to cover the sites.
As big a name as AG Communications Limited is in the UK iGaming scene, it’s a name that doesn’t exist at all outside it. It’s just a trading style of an even larger casino operator called Aspire Global, which has its headquarters in Malta and has been active since 2005. Aspire Global created AG Communications specifically for entry into the UK iGaming market in 2009, for which it sought and obtained a UKGC licence for its new creation. Away from the UK, the operator is responsible for over a hundred other casino sites and serves every regulated European market plus quite a few beyond it. In 2022 iLottery giant NeoGames decided it liked the look of Aspire Global and bought the company outright.

Mr Play Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
Mr Play is bursting at the seams with gaming options. You can group everything it does into two categories, though – casino betting and sports betting. If you’re joining Mr Play for casino betting, here’s how the casino welcome promotion works. It’s worth up to £200 in matched deposit funds and comes with one hundred free spins. You can claim a 100% matched deposit up to £50 when you join the casino and get twenty free spins on Starburst at the same time. Second and third deposits are then matched at 50% up to £75 to make up the £200. The free spins are automatically allocated at a rate of twenty per day after the first deposit. Another twenty free spins on Starburst show up on day two, followed by twenty on Book of Dead, twenty on Legacy of Dead, and another twenty on Starburst to finish.
Perhaps you don’t want the casino welcome promotion. Maybe you want the sports betting welcome promotion instead. That’s far easier to explain. Join Mr Play, deposit £10, bet that £10 as a single bet on any sporting event with odds of 1/1 as a minimum, and then receive a £10 bet token in your account. You have to spend the £10 token all at once and must do so within fourteen days of receiving it.
Mr Play is surprisingly bereft of additional promotions for such a well-known casino site. There aren’t any casino promotions apart from the welcome promotion. The additional sports promotions listed are things like an instant cash-out facility for live games, a custom bet-builder, and bet boosts. These are all things that plenty of other sports betting sites offer as standard. You’ll often find tournaments listed in the promotions section, and the tournaments come with fabulous prizes, but the lack of a guaranteed route to these prizes means they can’t be classed as promotions.
Top Games at Mr Play
Mr Play is a jack of all trades, but the first games you’ll see on its homepage are slots. Slots are its bread and butter, and the top slots at Mr Play are the ones it hooks the free spins from its welcome bonus to. That means Starburst has to be considered the top slots game at Mr Play because it receives sixty of the one hundred free spins the promotion provides. NetEnt struck gold when they came up with Starburst more than ten years ago, and nobody else has really been able to get close to it in terms of popularity since. The other two slots that receive free spins from the promotion are both Egyptian-themed, and both come from Play’n Go. Book of Dead is the first, and its sequel, Legacy of Dead, is the second. The original Book of Dead is the game that popularised the “book of” mechanic, which involves random base game symbols turning into expanding wilds when free spins are triggered. There’s little difference between the two games.
Customer Support and Licensing
Mr Play doesn’t have telephone or live chat customer assistance, leaving email as the only way of getting in touch with the casino. For a site of this size and of such repute, that’s shocking. Like all of its sister sites, Mr Play is covered by UK Gambling Commission licence 39483. It’s AG Communications Limited’s licence and carries extra conditions plus a warning after a regulatory review in 2022. The review led the UKGC to conclude that AG Communications hadn’t ensured that its white-label partners were compliant with AML regulations, for which it also fined the company £237,600.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
Mr Play would like to provide you with instant withdrawals but will never commit to doing so. It’s a little too cautious with its quoted turnaround times for withdrawals; for example, debit card withdrawals are given a withdrawal period of 0-6 days. That’s far too vague to be of any use. Trustly is barely any better, as it’s listed at 0-4 days. Things become a little more reasonable when it comes to the e-wallets that Mr Play supports, which are PayPal, MuchBetter, and Skrill. Instant withdrawals are still the aim, but the maximum delay is only two days. You can’t get an instant withdrawal to your AstroPay card, which is given a three-day turnaround. As a last resort, a bank transfer will take between two and six days.
Final Thoughts on Mr Play
Mr Play is both recognised and celebrated as the best of the AG Communications Limited casino sites. We can’t help but wonder how many of the people who describe it in such terms have been blinded by its good looks. There are Mr Play sister sites – including some of the low-rated ones – that are capable of providing live chat support to people who need it. The fact that Mr Play doesn’t is inexcusable. A truly top casino would also be far more specific about when its customers can expect their withdrawals.Mr Play Sister Sites Player Reviews
Here are the thoughts of your fellow players about Mr Play. The reviews are all real, but we’ve paraphrased them to keep them brief.
I bet on the Napoli game. They won 2-0, but Mr Play settled the bet as a loss. That’s plain and simple robbery.Dale, January 22nd 2023. Source Trustpilot.
I won £20 playing at Mr Play, but the site never paid me. Don’t sign up; you’ll be sorry you did if you win big and never get your money!Alexandar, January 12th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
So perhaps Mr Play isn’t the best casino site, but it deserves better than the trashing it’s getting from these reviews. I joined up and instantly received the free bet I was promised. I’ve never had any problem withdrawing money, and nor should anyone who’s sent the right documents to verify their account. The only reason I’m not giving it the full five stars is that I find the site’s UI to be quite poor.Stephen, January 2nd 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
I don’t understand why Mr Play gets so many bad reviews. My experience with the site has always been good. Whenever I’ve needed to speak to customer support, I’ve found them to be helpful and fair. I’d recommend Mr Play happily.Mary, December 17th 2022. Source – Trustpilot.
Mr Play has the worst slots I’ve ever played, and I’ve played some bad ones. Don’t use this casino; you’ll end up badly out of pocket if you do. Gary, December 14th 2022. Source Trustpilot.
