10Bet is one of the oldest betting sites around, and despite not having the biggest player base when compared with some of the more prominent bookmakers, they have still managed to amass a significant share of the online sports betting market, thanks to their wide variety of markets, attractive sign-up bonuses, and offering best odds guaranteed.
Alongside their sports betting facilities they also offer a number of other products, including an online casino and poker; and they have become an incredibly well respected and trusted name within the industry.
A quick browse of the forums finds very few complaints, which isn’t surprising given their fast withdrawals, helpful customer support team, and the way in which they look after regular players. It’s clear then that 10Bet is held in extremely high regard by its regulars, which is always a good sign.
In this post, we’re going to take an in-depth look at the bookie, revealing the bonuses and promotions they offer, alongside some of the unique features that help them to stand out from many of their competitors.
Sign Up Bonus
Popular Offers & Features
10Bet have come up with a couple of pretty generous offers available to both new and existing players alike, and we are going to cover the most attractive of these below.
Each week you can enjoy a £10 free bet as part of 10Bet’s Acca Club. All you need to do is opt-in to the promotion and place 4 acca bets worth at least £10 each, and once you have placed your 4th you’ll instantly be credited a £10 free bet to use on any event or market over the next 7 days.
The only rule is that you must use it within 7 days, and the bets you place it on must have odds of 1/1 (evens) or higher.
To opt-in, simply head to the ‘Promotions’ page and select ‘Acca Club’. As long as you are logged in you’ll see the opt-in button, and you’ll also be able to view the full terms and conditions that govern the promotion.
The Acca Club is perfect for those who bet regularly, and even if you’re not usually a fan of promotions it’s one you may as well take advantage of as it’s free to do so, and the £10 free bet carries more than reasonable wagering requirements.
It’s rare to see a betting site without some kind of cash out function these days, and 10Bet were one of the first online bookmakers to implement it. In fact, they also offer one of the rarer cash out features, allowing you to cash out bets in full as well as partially.
Cashing out in full allows you to cash out the entirety of your stake while the game is still in play. So, if you backed a football team and they were leading 1-0 in the 75th minute, you could cash out for a profit. This is useful if you don’t want to spend the last period of the game on the edge of your seat, crossing your fingers.
Partial cash out allows you to cash out a small part of your bet only. Say you had a £20 bet on and the cash out was £100. You could cash out half your bet for £50, leaving the remaining £10 on in the hope of winning the event. This is very useful when your returns are a little higher, and you don’t want to risk everything when you could walk away a little sooner with a confirmed profit.
If your bet qualifies for cash out you’ll see a ‘Cash Out’ button beneath it on the ‘Open Bets’ section of your account.
The 10Bet Website
10Bet’s website may look a little old and dated when compared to some of their main competitors, but for those who want a simple no strings attached betting experience the site is appealing; and while design is clearly not at the forefront of the development team’s minds, everything that is there works well, and the site is extremely reliable and secure to boot.
Below, we’ll cover some of the main functions and features that make 10Bet stand out.
One of the biggest niggles punters have when betting online, is having to navigate through thousands of available markets to find the right bet for them. Thankfully, 10Bet have worked hard to combat this confusing scenario, and their website is designed to allow you access to the market you want easily. On the left-hand side of all pages you’ll see two menus; the first is a ‘Top Events’ tab which features the 10 most popular markets currently being bet on. This menu changes each day and reflects the most popular events currently available at the site. Below this, you’ll see another menu titled ‘Sports’, and this allows you to browse all of the markets currently available in an A-Z format.
While some bookmakers have faced criticism for trying to disguise their most profitable bets as the most popular ones, 10Bet offer an honest and transparent ‘Betting Highlights’ tab which showcases some of the more favourable prices currently available. These prices are combined with the popularity of the bets in order to display the 5 most popular bets of the day.
Just below, you’ll also see a small Live Betting summary area, which gives you a simple overview of the current live games, along with access to the full list of events should you wish to view them.
10Bet have a tab titled ‘Specials’ on the navigation menu (just right of the Horse Racing tab), and this gives an overview of the month’s best games and promotions. For example, at the time of writing the tab displays as ‘August Specials’, and inside there are a number of promotions and features including: special price boosts and money back specials on Goodwood horse races, a Free Bet Frenzy where you can win free bets when English footballers score during the premier league, alongside a number of other promos.
This section changes every month, and while not all of the promotions are worth taking, 10Bet are generally pretty generous with what they offer here, so it’s well worth your time checking it out, especially if you’re planning on placing a few bets anyway.
Speed and Usability
As we touched upon briefly in the introduction, 10Bet’s website isn’t as graphically impressive as it perhaps could be, but this has a plus side as the site is incredibly fast, and this is partially thanks to the high levels of development work that have gone into building the website.
10Bet have always stated that their priority is to offer players an uninterrupted and hassle-free gambling experience, and their developers ensure there are no needless extra’s that could slow the sites performance or make navigating a chore.
This is, perhaps, why the design is left a little bare, as snazzy graphics and the like increase loading times. Whether or not this is a deliberate move by 10Bet is beside the point; it works to your advantage, ensuring you enjoy a seamless betting experience.
10Bet offer one of the largest selections of deposit methods around, and you’ll be able to fund your account using: Visa and Mastercard Debit/Credit cards, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, EcoPayz, Bank Transfer, and Cheque.
Withdrawal methods are the same where applicable, and the minimum deposit is just £5 on most payment methods, with Neteller requiring a minimum deposit of £10, and EcoPayz, Bank Transfers, and Cheques requiring a minimum deposit of £20.
Withdrawal minimums are not far off, with most payment methods requiring a £10 minimum withdrawal, with the exception of Skrill which is £5. Bank Transfers have a minimum withdrawal of £25.
Unfortunately, 10Bet don’t support the biggest selection of currencies, but you can fund and bet using GBP and EUR. Withdrawals generally take 1-5 days to reach your account, although the pending time isn’t explicitly stated.
In terms of withdrawal limits, the maximum withdrawal per request is £50,000 – so it’s unlikely many punters are going to run into problems here.
Despite being barely a decade old, 10Bet has done well to gain a footing in an industry that is notoriously difficult to achieve any traction in.
They can put that down to doing some of the simple things well: the website is nicely designed and thoughtfully laid out, even if the colour palette used isn’t to everyone’s tastes. Their live betting module is intuitive and enables easy locating of relevant markets and events – essential where in-play punters need to act fast. And some of their prices in their Asian Handicap markets are as good as anything you will pick up anywhere else.
