10Bet may not be as well-known as many on the current market, but don’t let this deceive you as it has been around since 2003. This makes it a very well-established online bookmaker with a shed load of experience. Recently, it has become known as a class option in the industry. This is a privately owned bookmaker, operated and run by Comfortlink N.V., a company that is currently registered under the jurisdiction of Curacao.
10Bet may be a sportsbook, but on top of this, it offers an online casino and virtual gaming site if you fancy trying something a little bit different from time to time. It is now available in 6 continents and in 15 different languages and it’s a top online bookmaker for people all around the globe.
If you like a great variety of sports and markets (and who doesn’t), then 10Bet is going to be right up your street. In terms of the sheer number of markets on offer, they are quite possibly in the top 5 bookmakers in the world. When looking at pre-match markets, there are probably no bookies that can beat it and maybe just a few that can match it.
When it comes to football, all of the top and major divisions are represented; as well as this, most minor leagues are available too. In fact, the sports on offer pretty much cover everything you could ever want. The full list available is:
|Golf||Handball||Horse Racing||Ice Hockey|
|MMA||Motor Racing||Netball||Rugby League|
|Table Tennis||Trotting||Volleyball||Winter Sports|
Further to this, if you wish to bet on eSports then you can choose from games such as CS: GO, Dota 2, Hearthstone, King of Glory, League of Legends, Overwatch, Starcraft and Starcraft 2.
On top of this, if you wish to place a bet on world-wide events then you can wager on UK politics; Eurovision; BBC Sports Personality; royal babies; Danish politics; US politics and TV series such as Game of Thrones.
In-play betting is great because virtually every sport and market that you can bet on pre-match is also available to bet on in-play. As well as this, the 10Bet In-Play product even opens up in a slightly different screen layout, which looks great. Having said this, at times it seems as though the graphics are slightly below par and this can detract from the live play feeling somewhat.
That aside, all the match and game information can be easily located, along with odds information and changes, all in one place. This makes it uber easy in terms of functionality. Another aspect to be aware of is the fluctuation of live bets on offer with 10Bet, depending on the day of the week or the time of day. Having said that, despite the fluctuations, there are always plenty of sports on which you can place a bet on. Games such as football, basketball, volleyball, ice hockey and handball are practically always available and the others are simply an added bonus.
One thing to note though is the lack of live streaming. There is currently no live streaming available at 10Bet which is a bit of a disappointment considering the strength of the other in-play areas. This would definitely make a great and very welcome addition.
In terms of odds, 10Bet is great and is definitely above average in this particular area. Football, as the most popular sport on the site, has a pretty low betting margin at just 4.4%. 10Bet, in some markets, is so great with odds that it’s sometimes hard to see how it can keep at those levels long term. Even when it comes to sure bets, it’s still a site to be recommended.
On top of such promising football odds, 10Bet also guarantees that it will offer you the best odds and prices on all Irish and UK horse racing events, even with changeable odds.
If you choose to sign-up with 10Bet, then you’ll definitely get more bang for your buck on your very first deposit; when it comes to sign up offers, the one on offer is a 100% bonus up to £50. To claim the offer, simply deposit a minimum of £15 and you’ll get a 100% bonus up to a maximum of £50.
As you might expect, there are a variety of terms attached to the bet and bonus. Firstly, your qualifying deposit amount must be rolled over once on settled sports bets with odds of at least 1.6 or more. As well as this, any handicap bets (except 3-way handicaps), Draw no Bet or Over/Unders will not count towards the turnover requirement. Then, your bonus and deposit amount must bet rolled over 5-times on specific bet types (please check the full list) at odds of 1.60 or more before a withdrawal is possible. You also have 90 days to fulfil the requirements. Also, be aware that first deposits via Neteller or Skrill will not be eligible to claim the bonus.
There are various other terms and conditions attached, so be sure to check them out first.
10Bet always have a number of lifetime bonuses on offer. Currently, 10Bet will give you a £5 free bet every day when you bet on Cheltenham racing. Simply opt-in every day and place 5 bets on the day’s Festival races and 10Bet will give you a £5 free bet valid for the next day.
Get enhanced winnings on doubles, trebles and combos by up to 60%. Simply bet on combos from any sport and the more selections you make, the more of a boost you’ll get. 2 selections will reward you with a 2% boost bonus and this increases all the way to 16 selections, which will give you a massive 60% boost.
If you opt-in to the Live Free Bet Club then 10Bet will give you a £10 live free bet every week when you place 5 in-play bets of at least £10 or more before every Sunday at midnight. This is open to any sport.
This feature gives you the chance to collect your winnings before the betting event has even finished. Simply take your money and run if your bet is winning or secure part of your stake if it is losing. You can even add your winnings to your bankroll if a combo bet is in profit before all selections are settled. You can use it on pre-event, live bets, singles and combos.
If a bet qualifies for full cash out, you’ll see a cash out button in the My Bets section, showing how much money you can take. Partial Cash Out allows you to collect part of your winnings before the event has finished and the rest of the bet is still active. If your bet qualifies for partial cash out, you’ll see a small slider button to the right of the cash out button. Click the button to open the slider, select the amount you wish to cash out and then click the cash-out.
Remember all bonuses and promotions are subject to changes and come with full terms and conditions, so check the site to check exactly what is on offer at any one time. This very much varies on what big sporting events are currently in play.
As previously stated, 10Bet has been licensed and is registered under the jurisdiction of Curacao. However, as you may be aware, this isn’t the most tightly controlled jurisdiction on the planet. However, it is also licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, one of the strictest in the world, as well as the Malta Gaming Authority, so bettors in the UK and throughout Europe can be fully assured that you are in the safest of hands possible.
The site holds all the legal and necessary certifications and legal accreditations, required of an online gambling site; it has been tested and certified by third parties to ensure that everything is completely fair, honest and transparent. There are certain restricted countries that aren’t protected, so if you aren’t sure about your country of residence, then do check it out. However, UK residents are completely looked after.
Furthermore, the website is protected by a firewall and SSL encryption technology so you can always trust that your personal and financial data is well and truly protected and isn’t going to be hacked into at any point. Finally, it is linked to the top responsible gambling authorities, such as GamCare and GambleAware, so if you do feel as though you need assistance in controlling your gambling, then help is never far away.
As you may expect from such a well-established online bookmaker, there are several different banking methods available to you when you choose to make your deposits and withdrawals, from credit and debit cards to e-wallets and transfers. The options available to you are:
|Fast Bank Transfer||Y||Y|
|Verified by Visa||Y||Y|
As with most major online bookmakers, all deposits you make, except bank transfer, are completely immediate. You can start your betting straight away. It also has a relatively small minimum deposit of just £5; this is less than many others, although you may be excluded from bonuses with this low deposit. All deposits are completely safe and secure.
With regards to withdrawals, 10Bet is pretty much on par with many others. It isn’t especially fast, but neither is it particularly slow. Withdrawing via cards could take between 3 to 5 days; via eWallets like Neteller and Skrill, it could take up to 48 hours. There are certain limitations attached. You can withdraw a maximum of £50,000 in one day. Furthermore, it will process one credit/debit card or bank transfer a month with no fee. However, additional withdrawals may incur a processing fee of £5. On top of this, if you make a deposit, you need to turn it over at least 3-times before withdrawing it; if not, it may be subject to an 8% withdrawal fee.
Also, be aware that if there are additional security checks required; this may delay your withdrawal for a short while.
The currencies currently accepted by 10bet are AUD, CAD, CNY, DKK, EUR, GBP, HKD, JPY, MYR, NOK, PLN, RUB, SEK, SGD, TWD, USD and ZAR.
As you might expect from a sportsbook available so widely, the customer support is great. It offers 24-hour support on the telephone. You can contact the agents any time of night or day on +359 2 4925973, also on email at [email protected]. As you can imagine, the telephone option is instant; if you have an urgent query that you need to talk to someone about, this is your best option. The email address is best left for non-urgent queries as it can take up to 24 hours to answer. There is also a live chat option available, but currently, this is not available 24 hours a day.
The support comes in several different languages including English, German, Portuguese and Spanish, which is great. Also, the agents are very helpful and knowledgeable; they give positive and professional assistance whether you contact via phone, email or live chat.
The interface on the 10Bet website is actually rather awesome. As a betting platform, it’s pretty hard to find fault with. The software it uses looks sleek and smooth; the layout is easy and practical if you’re on the hunt for the top markets of the day. On the left of your screen, there’s a long list of all the sports it has on offer. However, because of the quantity on its homepage, it can look overwhelming if you aren’t used to it.
In terms of overall functionality and usability, it’s hard to fault. It allows you to change language, pick the type of odds you prefer to use (fractional, decimal or American); furthermore, the pages all reload the minute you change your betting market and it’s all in an instant. If you know what you’re doing, betting can be done in a split second. It looks good, works good – is good.
Looking at the 10Bet mobile feature, you can see that this is an area that it takes seriously; and quite rightly so. To start with, it offers promotions aimed at mobile users and has a dedicated mobile app.
If you’re a newbie, then you can get your hands on an awesome 10Bet mobile bonus. This will award you with an impressive £100 on your first deposit – obviously with terms and conditions attached. The mobile product also offers a wide variety of pre-match and in-play betting, live statistics, a smooth and seamless mobile browser and everything you could want or need while betting on the move.
You can take advantage of all the features on offer, such as Cash Out, Fast Markets, Acca promos, and free bet offers. In fact, pretty much everything you can do on desktop, you can do on the mobile.
The betting app is currently only available on iOS from the iTunes store. Other mobile users may have to play straight in the browser. The app takes a matter of moments to download. On the plus side, whether you’re an app user or a mobile browser user, your experience will be equally as great. So, if you want to play on the move, on live in-play bets or pre-match bets and you still want the best offers and the best experience around, then the 10Bet mobile product offers you everything you could want.
