MrQ at a Glance
- Top highlights : Very smart graphics; wide range of game providers
- VIP or loyalty programme : No
- Other offerings: Poker
MrQ is a comprehensive site for online gambling that was launched in August 2018 by the UK media company – Lindar Media Limited – which remains its operator to this day. With Lindar itself having been around since 2014, it is fair to say the St Albans, Hertfordshire-based firm has established quite the reputation over the past decade, in large part thanks to this popular casino portal.
But enough about the background – how does MrQ stack up as a place for someone to play casino and slots games online? With the site promising hundreds of games across various categories, as well as some eye-catching promotions and no fees on players’ winnings, our initial impressions are positive ones – so, let’s delve right into the action.
Any ambitious casino and slots site depends a lot on its promos and bonuses in order to hook in new players and keep existing ones happy. Sure enough, MrQ – which also boasts that all of its promos are “100% wagering free” – offers a tempting selection, including the likes of:
- A generous welcome bonus package
- Free spins
- A refer-a-friend scheme
- Daily and weekly prize draws for cash prizes
Range of Casino Games
If there’s one thing that will always be more central to the appeal of an online casino portal than even its promos and bonuses, it is the games themselves. And MrQ proudly advertises that it has hundreds of games to pick from, encompassing such categories as jackpot slots, roulette, blackjack, Slingo, and Megaways titles, and a selection of live casino games.
Naturally, you can expect the exact games on offer at a site like MrQ to vary over time. Nonetheless, at the time of our visit for this review, we found such favourites as the below:
- 9 Pots of Gold Slot
- Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
- 20p Roulette
- Deal or No Deal Slingo
- Gorilla Gold Megaways
- Mega Ball
- Jacks or Better Poker
Overall, we’re fairly impressed by the range of casino and slot games on offer at MrQ, even if the selection isn’t quite as in-depth as that of some major competitors. It does help that the site draws its games from many different industry-leading software developers, such as Microgaming, Red Tiger Gaming, Evolution, and various others.
Even if you register at MrQ intending to solely play slot games, there’s a good choice of options here, encompassing both branded and generic titles.
Other examples of the former include Deal or No Deal: Golden Game and Lara Croft Temples and Tombs. Or if it’s non-branded titles that most interest you, it might be the likes of Fluffy Favourites Jackpot, Big Bass Bonanza, and The Dog House Megaways that keep you playing here.
Whether it’s classic slots, video slots, three-reel slots, five-reel options, or other types of slot games that you tend to be drawn towards, you probably won’t be disappointed by what MrQ has available.
Another gaming category that MrQ offers is bingo, with both 90-ball and 75-ball bingo accessible across such bingo rooms as On the House, Full Monty, and Pinch a Penny.
Or maybe at the time you read this, you’re more in the mood for a poker game such as Three Card Poker or Caribbean Stud Poker? Although MrQ doesn’t venture hugely out of the usual categories you would expect on a decent casino site, its choices are well-judged.
Software and Graphics
The graphical and software experience at MrQ is surely one of the site’s greatest strengths. Not only does the site itself strike just the right balance between visual flair and slick and easy navigation – including if you access the mobile-optimised version of the site – but the games themselves strike that balance equally nicely.
As we mentioned above, it isn’t MrQ itself that develops the games; in common with probably most other respected online casino and slots portals today, it instead gathers its games from multiple software providers, including such respected names as Blueprint, Pragmatic Play, and Eyecon. This approach helps ensure genuine variety in terms of the games and gameplay experience, as well as consistently high quality.
As we mentioned above, both Megaways and Slingo slots are represented at MrQ – the latter, for instance, being a type of game that effectively combines slots games with bingo. There’s a whole dedicated category for those games on the MrQ site, so if you’ve ever fancied giving the likes of Slingo Starburst or Slingo Berserk a go, this could be the place.
We also like the fact that MrQ maintains a regularly updated blog, complete with articles on subjects that are likely to interest casino and slots players, such as roulette strategy and how to play blackjack.
Loyalty or VIP Programme
At the time of this review being written, MrQ did not have a dedicated loyalty or VIP scheme. While the site doesn’t greatly suffer for that absence, we would certainly like to see some more developed arrangements for rewarding particularly loyal players, whatever form that might take.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
Putting down a deposit at MrQ so that you can proceed to play real-money games is pretty quick and easy. Having said that, the variety of accepted payment methods here isn’t as broad as that offered by some competitors, so we wouldn’t mind seeing some other options added to the below list.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Deposit|
|Easy Bank Transfer||£0||Instant||£10-£10,000|
|Pay By Mobile||£0||Instant||£10-£30|
*Current as of April 2022; check MrQ’s website for updates
In common with the situation at other casino and slots site these days, when you request a withdrawal at MrQ, it will be processed back to your primary method of payment.
The processing times we have given here are conservative estimates; in the case of PayPal and Visa Direct, for example, you can generally expect to wait just a few hours for a withdrawal to be fully processed, rather than days.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Withdrawal|
|Visa Debit||£0||Up to 7 working days||Minimum £10|
|Mastercard Debit||£0||Up to 7 working days||Minimum £10|
|PayPal||£0||Up to 7 working days||Minimum £10|
|Visa Direct||£0||Up to 7 working days||Minimum £10|
*Current as of April 2022; check MrQ’s website for updates
The standard of customer support available at MrQ is probably one of the site’s greatest strengths. There’s a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) database, for example, that is really informative and easy to use, including on the smartphone-optimised version of the site, and covering important categories such as privacy, payments, promos, gameplay, and safer gambling.
So, you might not even need to contact the site team directly for help with your query. But if you do need to do so, there is a handy ‘live chat’ function, and an actual email address (rather than the mere online contact form that some sites provide). The site team is available every day from 8am to 8pm.
Unfortunately, at the time of our review, there wasn’t any telephone support available for the site. However, the fact that the site specifically references the absence of a telephone option in its FAQs perhaps gives us reason to hope this situation may change in the future.
Who Can Play?
The bad news for those of you who might have hoped to play casino and slots games at MrQ from elsewhere, is that you will only be eligible for an account here if you live in the UK.
There are also certain other requirements for new players to comply with, as outlined in the site’s terms and conditions. Those include (but are not restricted to) being aged over 18, not already having a MrQ account, and not being classified as a compulsive problem gambler and/or included (whether voluntarily or involuntarily) on any register or database of individuals who are excluded from gambling.
Lindar Media Limited, the company that operates MrQ, is licensed and regulated in the United Kingdom by the highly respected Gambling Commission.
All in all, there are a lot of great reasons to choose MrQ as your place to play online slots and casino games. The variety of games here is broad, helped by the fact that they have been sourced from many different trusted software providers. We also like the detailed and easy-to-understand customer support database and resources here, and the site looks sophisticated and slick, too, without compromising the user experience.
If you register as a player at MrQ, then, you are likely to be kept stimulated as a player here for many months and even years to come.
