Betting experience

Black Type Bet is an exciting new player in the market. In the overpopulated industry, new companies are having to find a real USP to separate themselves from the crowd. In Black Type's case, it is the fact that they will not ban or restrict its customers from winning and will guarantee to lay any price to lose at least £500.

It is an 'old school' approach that is certainly welcome in the digital world. We all know how frustrating it can be to have your bets restricted to tiny amounts, not allowed or not paid out.

Otherwise, Black Type offers an excellent sportsbook and expansive casino section.

Black Type takes some pride in declaring that, like Pinnacle, they offer excellent odds as a standard and not as a promotion or offer. If you are looking for welcome offers with enhanced odds and winnings as a free bet, then this is not your place. This is not a company that believes in small print.

Their selection of sports bets is outstanding, especially considering they are so new to the market. You can see that they are a British company as they are heavily focused on football and horse racing. They also offer a wide selection of bets on:

  • Greyhound racing
  • Cricket
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Tennis
  • Rugby union
  • Snooker

If you enjoyed the old-school way of betting at a local betting outlet but have accepted, perhaps due to convenience, that you're going to have to move online, then Black Type is the bookmaker for you.

Blacktype promotions

Black Type Bet's Site isn't the place for promotions. They have decided to market themselves on offering excellent odds and not restricting bettors. They do offer promotions every so often, but there is not a lot of marketing around them. We recommend you check this page for the latest promotions.

About blacktype

Black Type Bet was founded in 2016. Its shareholders include Mylo Sangster, the grandson of the famous owner-breeder Robert Sangster. They were launched with the promise to lay bets at advertised prices and appealing to an old-school type of betting.

The firm has horse-racing in their blood, and this was apparently why they chose to market themselves the way they have. With so many accounts closed by bookmakers in recent years, the owners at Black Type grew concerned that the appeal of horse racing was diminishing.

To retain its margins, Black Bet does not offer lots of promotional campaigns.

Blacktype Sports Betting

For being a company that prides itself on being a no-nonsense 'old-school' bookie it has a surprisingly slick site. Its sports section is easy to manoeuvre and, although quite basic, looks excellent.

You have all the major British sports as mentioned above. However, they offer a whole range of betting options from all over the world. You can bet on anything from Bahrain's King's Cup to El Salvador's Primera Division - pretty much what you want; they will have.

Black Type Products

Again, for a new company, Black Type provide pretty polished products. They offer services that have taken other betting sites a while to get going. We have to say, their products work seamlessly and most importantly they are easy to use.

BlackType Live Streaming

Unfortunately, live streaming is not yet offered by Black Type.

BlackType live betting

Black Type offers an 'In-play' function that is always filled with games from all over the world.

Black Type Cashout

This is a relatively new feature of Black Type's site, so we've only been able to use it a few times. If you see the three coin symbol, just hit it and you'll be offered a cash-out. It works well so far.

Again, they don't faff around. The site is simple but easy to use. They have a really good selection of games that all work smoothly. For most games, you can have the option to try them out first which is a nice touch. Again, the site's understated but slick design makes the customer experience very enjoyable.

Black Type Bet Mobile

Black Type's mobile site works well. It really is the same site, just optimised for your device.

Black Type Bet App

We like their app. It's simple, it's slick, and it's easy to use. However, we can't find it available on an Android device.
