Manchester United have teamed up with Marathon Bet to launch their own branded online casino. This is a first, but it has already drawn criticism due to the further linking of gambling and football. However, issues of social responsibility aside we thought we’d take a look at the site and see what it has to offer.
Being both website builders and casino reviewers we weren’t exactly impressed with what we saw. We were so unimpressed that we didn’t even bother to test the site out for a review. We could have signed up for a demo account to try out the games, but, as there is no real information on the page (http://mufc.marathonbet.co.uk/casino) we don’t know if a demo account is available. And, we always ‘try before we buy’.
When registering at an online casino it’s always good to know what you’re getting into. A casino should provide you with plenty of information before you sign up, what games are on offer, promotions, and more. However with the Man United Casino there is no info on the page.
We do know that there are live games on offer because of what we have read, but, we are guessing that the site is merely a ‘skin’ from Marathon Bet, a replication of their casino, but with a bit of branding thrown in with the odd player pictured.
In essence, we would like to be told that we had got it wrong and that if we bothered to sign up we would be treated to a real Man United casino experience, maybe Paul Pogba putting in a guest spin on the Live Dealer roulette, maybe even Jose welcoming us to the casino. Please tell us we’re wrong, please let us know that the casino really isn’t just a regular casino with red wallpaper by leaving a comment below.
By the way, if this article appears to be a slanted bit of sour grapes from Man City fans, we can assure it is not. We support neither, but know a good casino when we see one, and, a bad one. If you’re looking for a casino that is a bit more transparent, and definitely offers a demo account, the you could a lot worse than one of our favourites, Raw Casino.
