Black Type Review - Summary

Black type sportsbook review

Founded in 2016, Black Type’s a very new body in the tough and competitive world of internet sports bookmakers, but it’s already established itself as one of the most punter-friendly places to play online.

  • 12-hour customer support via e-mail 
  • Bet £10, Get £20 in free bets welcome offer
  • £10 minimum withdrawal. £100,000 maximum withdrawal
  • More than 25 sports to bet on plus specials and virtual sports

Welcome Offer

When you bet your first £10 at Black Type you will be greeted with two lovely £10 free bets to spend on anything in the sportsbook.

Only one bonus bet can be placed per event. Only bets with odds 2.00 (1/1) or higher are permitted while betting to meet the wagering requirement.

The welcome offer only applies to deposits through Visa or Mastercard and UK customers. Both free bets must be used within 14 days of being credited.

Deposits and Withdrawals

The minimum single deposit and withdrawal is £10. The minimum deposit is £5,000 and the maximum withdrawal is a very hefty £100,000.

You can deposit and withdraw payments via Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards only.

Extra Features

To say Black Type are quite a small brand and in the embryonic stage of their life they already offer some great new features including acca boosts, cash out and a money back offer on selected NFL markets.

And as a greyhound and horse racing specialist, they also offer best odds guaranteed on all UK greyhound racing and all UK and Irish horse racing on the day of the race.

They also promise to never ban their customers, which may not sound like a big deal, but in this day and age, many sportsbooks are all too willing to restrict or close accounts if you keep on winning and winning and winning.


Right, I’ll say it from the off: if you’re not a player at this sportsbook, you really need to sort that out. And now.

Black Type may not look all that fancy, or all that great, but it is fancy, and it is really, really great. Indeed, I’d argue that it’s as good as anything out there. It may not have all the extra features that some of the big boys like Betfred and Ladbrokes offer, but they do have some, and they also offer the best odds guaranteed on all greyhound and horse racing markets in the UK, which is just superb.

But the main selling point sure is the fact they will never, ever restrict your account. When Black Type came into existence in 2016, that promise caused quite a positive stir in the media, especially when the bigger names were regulating people’s accounts willy-nilly, and seeing such a brand new name pledge that was just superb for the industry. It made Black Type look innovative and reliable. And that’s why it’s a great, great place to play.
