10Bet Bookmaker Review

10bet home

10Bet may not be a name you’re immediately familiar with if you’re not intimately familiar with the betting world, but that’s mainly because they don’t have the same sort of reputation as the bookies who became famous on the high street before taking to the world wide web. In actually fact the company’s been in operation since 2003 and during that time has established itself as one of the best of the online companies.

10Bet started out targeting the Asian market, making a name for itself in the Far East before turning its gaze on the European market. The reason they’ve so successfully navigated the world of bookmakers in the UK is that their football coverage is up there with the very best. They offer markets on over 150 leagues and their live betting is also top-notch. They’ve sponsored a number of high-profile events and teams in recent times, gaining attention for doing so and they’re only likely to grow in the coming years.

Welcome Offer - 50% Deposit Bonus Up To £200

Welcome offer for new customers only. 18+. Terms & Conditions Apply.

How’s this for a welcome offer: Deposit up to £400 and get it matched 50%. That means that you’re essentially getting £200 worth of bonus funds and that’s the sort of thing that you really shouldn’t turn your nose up at!  The minimum deposit is just £15 (giving a £7.50 bonus) and so there is a range to suit everyone here.

How To Claim

If you’d like to take advantage of the 50% match up to £200 then you simply need to create an account and use the deposit code FD200 when making your first deposit. As long as you make a minimum deposit of £15+ then it will be matched 50% up to a maximum of £200. The only thing you need to do is bet your deposit itself once on bets with odds of at least 3/5 (1.60) to activate the bonus.

What Deposit Methods Are Valid For The Bonus?

It’s actually easier to tell what *can’t* be used for a deposit in order to qualify for this offer. As long as you make your deposit with a banking means other than Neteller or Skrill then you’ll be fine. That’s actually pretty standard with bookies and their welcome offers nowadays due to fraudulent bonus practices with those payment options in the past.

How The Bonus Works

This is, to be fair, a little complicated, so stick with me. Right, you’ve opened your account and made your deposit of a least £15, using the code FD200. You’ve bet the deposit and you’ve noticed that you’ve been credited with up to £200 of bonus money into your Sports Bonus Account. Now you want to know how you can make use of those free fund, right? Thought so. What you need to do is wager the deposit+bonus amount five times on sportsbook bets with minimum odds of 3/5 (1.60) to convert this, and any bonus winnings, into withdrawable cash.

For example you've deposited £50 and received a £25 bonus, you need to bet the deposit and bonus amount (£50+£25 = £75) five times, therefore you need to stake £375 (5 x £75) to turn the promo fund into cash.

You can’t place the bet on any kind of handicap apart from 3Way, nor can it be on a Forecast, Tricast or on Under/Over bets - all other bet types are fine.

You need to ensure the money has been rolled over within ninety days of your initial deposit and you should know that only 50% of your bet will count towards the roll over. Also, just a little word of warning, if you try to withdraw the deposit or bonus money before you’ve rolled it over eight times then it will be forfeited. Always worth bearing that in mind because you don’t want to roll it over seven times and then lose it by accidentally trying to take it out of your account!

Regular 10Bet Promotions

10bet promo

10Bet’s best regular promotion as far as I’m concerned is their Acca Jacker offer. That’s partially because I like stuff that rhymes, but mostly because I like to place an accumulator every now and then and I feel that getting it to hit is such a rare occurrence for me that it deserves to be rewarded handsomely. 10Bet actually have some of the best acca offers around and the enhanced winnings offered through their Acca Jacker bonus are a good example of this.

You can add bets to your accumulator from any sport, league or competition and still be rewarded if it pays off. If you bet on a 5-fold, for example, and it comes home then you’ll benefit from a 10% extra cash bonus. A 7-fold gets 15%, 8-fold 20% and so on all the way up to a 60% extra cash bonus award if your 16-fold accumulator wins. To be honest if I ever got a sixteen-fold accumulator to land then I’d be running around town with my top off, but you’re probably more sensible than I am and the 60% bonus sounds right up your street.

The other regular promo that might just tickle your fancy is 10Bet’s monthly reload bonus. Now the specifics of this change from time to time so I won’t drill down into too much detail. Suffice to say, however, that it usually sees you rewarded with up to 50% reloaded on deposits of anything from £25 to £100. If you’re going to be making monthly deposits then it makes sense to put yourself in a position where you can get some of it reloaded, doesn’t it?

10Bet also run tons of event specific free bets and money back deals, there is always something available to add value to your betting.

Desktop Site

10bet desktop

I’ll be honest, I don’t love the 10Bet website. This is purely, excuse the pun, a bit of a horses for courses situation. I’m not a fan of websites that are overly busy and I do think that 10Bet’s tries to do a bit too much all at once. You might disagree with me, though, and I hope you do to be honest. Like the Marx brothers, you don’t want to be part of any club that I’m a member of.

On the homepage you’ll find the latest welcome offer, tabs for the different sections of the website like the casino and quick click links to some of the most popular games. More importantly, however, you’ll also find the top events of the day located in a column on the left-hand side and a list of sports just underneath that. Scroll down and you’ll then find the betting highlights for that day as well as any live events that are in progress at the moment you’ve landed there. One thing I am a big fan of is the search function, which you can use to find competitions or specific teams etc.

10Bet Mobile App

If the desktop site isn’t really for me then the mobile app really, really is. I’m a big fan of apps that take advantage of the quality of phone you’ve got and 10Bet’s definitely does that. It is colourful, bright and responsive, moving you around the various sports and bets with ease. Though it is, to some degree, just as ‘busy’ as the main website it works much better on a phone than it does on a computer. Where it takes up the entire screen on a laptop and therefore more can fit into the space, it is automatically limited on a phone so there’s loads going on but it all makes sense.

When you click on the ‘Sports’ tab you’re immediately greeted by the matches live right at that moment. There are also tabs for upcoming games as well as the matches that 10Bet deem to be the ‘highlights’ for that moment. It does default to football, but you can also easily switch to whichever other sport you fancy. There are tabs for the most popular options but you can also see all sports listed alphabetically or use a search function. I like the app a lot.

Live Betting

10bet live

Given that 10Bet have made a special effort to target football fans it really is no wonder that their live betting is second-to-none. The options are broken down into their various sports starting, of course, with football. It’s then broken down by country and then the leagues within that country.

It’s not just football that you can bet on live, either, with the likes of basketball, tennis, handball and ice hockey also making the cut. Once you’ve selected the sport that you want to bet on you’ll be presented with any number of markets to choose from. Obvious ones like who will win outright are there, but so are slightly more specific bets such as total number of match goals or total number of team goals. It’s fair to say that the live betting is where 10Bet really comes into its own.

Live Streaming

It’s no real surprise that, as a relatively young and ‘up and coming’ company 10Bet don’t offer live streaming on anything other than horse racing right now. You can watch racing from the UK and Ireland if you bet on the races.

In order to try to compensate for the lack of streaming for other sports they do have quite an all-encompassing Match Tracker graphic that lets you keep up with the events of football matches. The graphic will tell you which team’s in possession, whether it’s a dangerous attack or whether one team or another has a throw in or a set-piece. You can also see how the game has fluctuated up until that point in terms of things like possession or key moments, should you believe that that is a good indicator of what’s to come.

Markets and Odds

This is one area where 10Bet excel to the point of being almost untouchable. I may have already mentioned that their football coverage is pretty decent but let’s be clear: Covering more than 150 leagues is bonkers. Who even knew there were more than 150 leagues?! They also cover around thirty other sports, so it’s not as if they’re covering football to the detriment of other markets.

They claim that there are around 60,000 events to bet on on their site at any one time. I started to count but got to ten and realised it would take me ages, so I’m just taking their word for it instead. You’ll obviously be able to bet on all of the markets you’d expect such as American football, tennis and rugby. What may be a pleasant surprise is that you can also have a dabble at more random sports like futsal and netball. This isn't just a sportsbook either, so if you want to stick a bet on who’ll win I’m Not Really A Celebrity Please Let Me Die Here, or the likes, this is a good place to do so.

Banking

Debit cards, credit cards, Skrill and PayPal all have a minimum deposit of £5 and match that with a fee of 0%. Neteller and ecoPayz also incur 0% charges, but they have a minimum deposit of £10. Bank transfers also have a £10 minimum but can suffer from a BACS fee depending on your bank and other factors.

Other Products

As is the case with most self-respecting bookies with a decent online presence, you can also use 10Bet for all of your casino and live casino needs. This includes an extensive slot machine type-games area as well as video poker, roulette and even scratch cards. There’s live card games such as baccarat and BlackJack plus they promise instant gaming without the need to make transfers to different wallets.

About 10Bet

10betFounded in 2003 and operating in the UK with a licence from the Gaming Commission of the United Kingdom, 10Bet has made real inroads into the gambling world thanks to its online presence. There are a number of brick and mortar betting shops around the country though, with more popping up all of the time. Therefore if you prefer to do your betting in person than online then don’t discount them altogether just because you don’t know them as well as some of the more traditional bookies.

Though their UK operation is based in London they are actually active in 90 countries, so if you thought they were small fry then you’d be wrong. The main 10Bet operation is owned by Comfortlink N.V. and based out of Curacao, so if you’re after something of a faceless organisation to do your betting with then 10Bet is most certainly the company for you.

Pros

There’s no question that the biggest pro that 10Bet offers is the depth of its markets. The sheer amount of bets you can place and sporting events you can place those bets on is mind-blowing when you stop and think about it. The mobile app is also a personal favourite thing of mine and I’m sure some of you will love the desktop site, too. In short there’s far more to recommend it than not.

Cons

The business of the main site can be a little confusing to people who don’t go on betting sites all that much. It’s not the easiest to navigate and you may struggle to figure what you’re looking for in amongst all of the many different markets. The lack of live streaming is also a bit of a disappointment, even if it is completely understandable for such a relatively new venture. They do their best to make up for it but it’s not quite the same as being able to watch the action unfold as it happens.

Licence & Contact Details

10Bet are a company with a UK gambling based licence, the number of which is 43173. That means that they adhere to all of the associated laws, rules and regulations set out by the UK gambling commission, so there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to the safety of your money and so on.

They’re not the easiest of companies to communicate with if you’re a social media user, though. Both their Facebook and Twitter tend to be used to push things they’re trying to get people to sign up to rather than to interact with their customers. They’re much better when it comes to their live chat, email service and freephone number, however. You can also send them post, should you be of a mind to do so, and their UK based customer service address is 10Bet Limited, 1 Ballards Lane, London, UK, N3 1LQ.

They do have a parent company that is based out of Curacao and there address is as follows: Comfortlink N.V., Emoore N.V., Landhuis Groot Kwartier, Groot Kwartierweg 12, Willemstad, Curacao
