About McBookie

McBookie is a respected sportsbook and casino offering players a sophisticated site with many gaming and betting options. It is a Scottish company and aims to be the top choice for Scottish bettors and gamers. Incorporated in 2009, McBookie is a privately-owned company and gives players an intimate and personalised experience for all their gaming needs. The offerings here include casino games, slots, table games, live dealer games and sportsbook options, with all types of player catered to by clicking through from the same site.

Sports betting fans can choose from a number of different options, including pre-match and in-play betting on all sorts of sports, ranging from popular football matches and horse racing to niche sports such as hurling and volleyball. It is also an option to bet on a range of non-sporting events, such as political events or entertainment events.

The Scottish influence is clear thanks to the colour scheme and opening image of Scottish football fans with their country's flag. The Tartan Club is open to Scottish players only; therefore, this is quite a patriotic brand and will appeal to Scottish people looking for a site that specialises in all things Scottish.

Bookie Offers & Promotions

New players at McBookie can claim a series of welcome offers across the casino and sportsbook; for example, new casino players can enjoy a welcome bonus of up to £175 when they make their first deposit. You can claim the bonus by depositing and then playing the games to unlock your free cash. Once you have wagered £500, you unlock a £25 bonus; wagering another £1,500 unlocks a £50 bonus; and wagering another £3,000 unlocks a further £100. This gives an overall total of £175 in free bonus cash.

You must complete your wagering within 30 days. Once you are up and running in the McBookie casino, you can also claim £3,000 in real cash every single week. Simply play the casino games at the site to qualify for the chance to win the free money; the more you wager, the more bonus money you can claim. On top of this are great offers for sport betting enthusiasts. If you bet £30, you will get another £5 on top if you are a member of the Tartan Club (available for Scottish players only), while all new players can enjoy a £25 welcome bonus in the sportsbook.

There are no other promotions or bonus offers mentioned on the McBookie website, although new promotions can crop up from time to time and it is certainly worth keeping an eye on the promo page to see any new offers that could appear. The site will also email members with details of bonus rewards or new seasonal promotions.

Website Review

The design of McBookie is clean and crisp, with a sophisticated feel thanks to the sensible dark blue colour scheme. The dark blue contrasts with the white lettering used throughout the site, making good use of the Scottish flag's colours. The very name of the website is Scottish in character with the Mc prefix; meanwhile, the payout is clear and user-friendly and a menu at the top features all the main options, such as sports, in-play betting, casino, live casino and blog.

The focus of this website seems to be squarely on the sports betting side rather than the casino side and this is reflected in the tab layout, with sports and in-play being the first two tab options. If you click through to the casino, you will find the games options neatly laid out in a clear submenu giving access to slots, table games, video poker and jackpots. You can also search by A to Z, paylines, provider and bonus types, making this section highly flexible and your favourite games easy to find.

Software providers are plentiful here, making it easy to find games to suit your playing style. The big names on offer here include Evolution, Microgaming, IGT, Lightning Box, and NetEnt. It is also useful to be able to search the new slots by clicking 'new' to give access to the newest releases easily. There is also a Top 20 option, where you can see all the most popular games right now. It is no surprise to find big NetEnt names here, including Starburst and Gonzo's Quest. Finally, the live casino gives access to roulette, blackjack and baccarat, all dealt by real live dealers, with 25 tables to choose from.

Deposit & Withdrawal Options

The payment options at McBookie include Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Laser and Neteller. These options should make it possible for all players to make deposits at the site; however, some players might miss the options of depositing by PayPal or Skrill, which are sometimes available at other online casinos and sportsbooks. All the payments and other transactions at McBookie are protected by secure encryption technology to ensure absolute safety and security and guarantee that there is no third-party access to your data.

Customer Service

Customer support is highly prized at McBookie and the support agents are committed to providing players with a fast response time and high-quality support. To find the contact page, go to the bottom menu and the relevant link is available at the end of the series of links. The support here is on offer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; therefore, you know that you can get help whenever you need it, whatever the time of day or night.

Get in touch with the McBookie team via email or online chat for help with any issue related to gaming or betting at the site. The instant chat team will respond quickly to give you help as soon as you need it; alternatively, if your enquiry is not as urgent, you can get in touch via the email address. The site is also active on social media, with accounts updated on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, so you can always get in touch with the team in this way if you prefer.
