Mr Smith Casino in a nutshell
Mr Green now has a rival! The Euro-friendly (except for players in Belgium, France, Italy and Spain) Mr Smith has opened its doors with a promise that it will provide punters with plenty of pulsating slot machine action.
Mr Smith is a re-branding – in July 2014 – of Harry Casino, which had been running since 2011. Harry Casino was a UK-focused online casino which provided over 300 slots from all the gambling world’s top software providers.
The mascot of Mr Smith is an endearing doggie wearing a flat cap and a red, white and blue scarf. The question is, will you find Mr Smith’s casino so endearing once we have completed our review? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out …

We can’t really fault it
What games are available at Mr Smith Casino?
It’s slots-a-plenty at Mr Smith. We did try to count them all, but we kept losing count. Lots of the best slots by the best slots providers are all represented here – titles such as Dracula, Cleopatra Mega Jackpots and Go Bananas. Many of the games have progressive jackpots, and plenty of them are available to be played on mobile.
Table games are not as numerous, but there is a decent enough selection nevertheless. Lots of varieties of blackjack, roulette, baccarat and casino poker, plus craps and red dog. No video poker though.
When it comes to live casino action you have the choice of baccarat, roulette, blackjack or casino hold’em.
More gaming options than there are fleas on a dog’s back!
It’s nearly a full house of providers at Mr Smith’s casino – NetEnt, Microgaming, Playtech and IGT are all here. If they could add Betsoft they’d have a casino gaming catalogue that could not be trumped!
All games are played in your chosen browser so there is no need for any downloading.
The site has plenty of games for mobile devices. They are mainly slots, but there are four table games as well.
Support is 24/7 … or at least it is supposed to be. When we opened up the live chat applet we were told that online support was currently unavailable, and we tried multiple times.
Can I play at Mr Smith Casino on mobile?
While the mobile version of the site isn’t an exact match for the desktop version, Mr Smith has plenty of games for mobile devices, whether iOS or Android. The games are mainly slots, but there are four table games as well.
What promotions are available at Mr Smith Casino?
Thankfully, Mr Smith Casino’s welcome package is not paid in dog biscuits.
As a RightCasino.com exclusive, if you sign up with Mr Smith Casino via the special link that we provide here, then you can claim a 200% bonus up to £200, plus 50 free spins on Starburst – that’s a doggie-tastic offer!
Wagering expectations are reasonable – 35x the bonus. Some other important pieces of info: The minimum qualifying deposit is £15, and if you deposit with either Skrill or Neteller than you won’t get your bonus bone. You have fourteen days to meet wagering requirements.
All free spins are on Starburst and must be used within 48 hours of you being awarded them. All winnings come with much more lax wagering conditions – 15x – before you can withdraw them.

Mr Smith does not run a VIP (Very Important Pooch?) scheme.
There’s a stark lack of information available to non-members on the site about banking. We could barely find a thing aside from five logos – Visa, Neteller, Paysafecard, Skrill and Entropay.
We found out from other sources that transactions take between one day (eWallets) and two to five days (credit and debit cards) to process. There’s also a pending period of 12-24 hours.
There’s also a withdrawal limit of £50,000 a day, which should not really cause too many issues.
Does Mr Smith Casino have a VIP Programme or Loyalty Scheme?
Mr Smith does not run a VIP scheme.
What are the pros & cons of Mr Smith Casino?
We have a few niggles with Mr Smith Casino, but overall, there’s much to admire. For more about the specific pros and cons of playing at this casino, see below:
- Very nice site design
- Free spins come with a 15x wagering requirement
- Lots of games available from all the top suppliers
- 24/7 live chat supports does not ever seem to be available

- Virtual roulette and blackjack don't count towards wagering
The final verdict
Mr Smith is a solid home for UK and Irish punters. The site is beautifully designed, with a huge catalogue of games and a cracking live casino. Mr Smith is owned by the same people behind BetSafe and Betsson, so you can be assured that your funds are safe.
Mr Smith just loses the odd point here and there – the 24/7 live chat that was unavailable whenever we tried it, and the lack of info about banking options.
It’s not quite the dogs bollocks, but it’s close. Why not sign up with Mr Smith and see if he can get you wagging your tail? Don’t forget to tell us of your experiences!
