When BlackType.bet launched in 2016, it promised not to limit or ban successful gamblers. Those behind the new venture shared the frustration of punters who have restrictions on how much they can bet with online bookmakers due to past wins so they made a product to eliminate that problem.
Black Type has been hailed as a return to a more traditional style of sports betting, with shareholders including Mylo Sangster, whose grandfather was the successful horse breeder Robert Sangster. Will it stay true to its word, and bring an end to ardent gamblers having to spread bets across multiple sites?
Black Type is a sportsbook and online casino site rolled into one. The name refers to a ‘black type’ horse, one that has won an event and had its name recorded in bold, black ink in the ledgers. As the name suggests, sports betting is the main focus, with more than 20 categories to bet on, as well as cultural specials. In addition, there are roughly 40 casino games available to play in between laying bets.
Players can jump between the casino and the sportsbook at the click of a button. Selecting a specific sport will bring up any upcoming matches to bet on. On the right-hand side there are further options, such as the different types of coupons, as well as all the races or competitions to bet on. In football betting alone there are over 50 different leagues, divisions and cups sourced from across the globe.
Black Type sportsbook and casino is owned by Black Type Services Ltd, based in the UK. The technology behind the site is supplied by FSB Technology Ltd, which is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. The casino product and most of the games are provided by Microgaming meaning the offerings are among the best in terms of development in the world.
Black Type Casino contains a mix of traditional table games, such as European Roulette, Hi-Lo Blackjack and Keno, plus a small selection of video slots supplied by Realistic Games including Super Graphics Upside-Down, Randall’s Riches and Cashing Rainbows. Meanwhile, the sportsbook offers a wide range of activities to bet on.
It also features a Specials category that caters to customers who wish to bet on non-sporting activities happening in politics, film and TV, celebrity and royal events. As well as the promise not to reduce betting amounts based on past wins, Black Type is enticing new members with a generous welcome bonus on the casino, as well as a 'Bet £10 Get £10' offer on the sportsbook!
