TLCBet is one of many betting operators that is rooted in the Asian markets, but has branched out to the UK and Europe. It is powered by TGP Europe in the Isle of Man and is fully regulated for the UK market.
While it is still a relatively new operation for the UK and European audiences, TLCBet’s presence has grown substantially. The company, founded back in 2010 in the Philippines, owes much of that exposure to the fact it sponsors Premier League club Middlesbrough F.C.
Navigation & Layout Features
The design aspects of the TLCBet domain are bold, eye-catching, and very simple to master. This makes it a winning recipe for casual punters and seasoned professionals who need a responsive and clear platform. The page setup also ensures a smooth navigation when accessing data through smartphone or tablet.
Some punters may initially be put off by the big logo in the top left, especially as it isn’t English. However, that header creates a nice space for logging in. Everything underneath is very easy on the eye. The betting slip is placed prominently in the top right while a list of leagues and sports is accessed via the left. There’s even a search bar for quick access to specific events and markets.
The middle column of the page is dominated by the In-Play console, which is another huge feature. Given that the action is happening live, the one-click system to open up those events is especially useful for those needing to get a bet on quickly.
A colour scheme dominated by reds and blacks ensures that all information is presented clearly. Moreover, the ability to switch between fractional and decimal odds allows users to have it their way. Likewise, the live support team can be accessed with the click of a button. Those simple comforts all create a far more enjoyable experience for the customer.
Level Of Coverage
TLCBet does also run a casino service that can be accessed all from the same website. However, the focus is evidently on the sportsbook market, at least for the UK market. And it shows.
Unsurprisingly, providing a comprehensive football platform is the primary aim. This is underlined by the fact that the quick links section of the navigation is dominated by the world’s elite football divisions. Not only does the website make it particularly easy to access those coupons. But it also offers in excess of 100 markets on some of those top class matches.
However, TLCBet is equally good at covering lesser leagues. In particular, it’s coverage of the Asian leagues is particularly strong, which won’t come as a major shock. If it’s goal is to find a happy medium between catering for the two unique markets, it has done so without ruining either.
Away from football, the company offers the chance to place bets on a variety of other sports ranging from American football to winter sports. Whether it’s pre-game or In-Play, all punters will find the experience to be quick and painless.
The In-Play console is quite an advanced one, offering a ‘Fast Markets’ services on a large percentage of its live games. However, the use of a flexible Cash Out feature is something that gives TLCBet a huge advantage over the companies that don’t.
Whether it’s a single selection or an accumulator, members can trade out of a bet early. Moreover, the mini slider offers complete control where it’s possible to choose either a full transaction or a partial one. And with greater control, the odds are suddenly back in your favour.
The new sportsbook customer offer isn’t the greatest promotion you’ll ever see. Nonetheless, any free bet is a good one. Open an account and place six qualifying bets to earn a free token worth up to £50. The key things to remember is that it’s only equal to your lowest qualifying bet, and that those six selections must be at odds of over 2.0.
TLCBet horse racing customers are also covered by the best odds guarantee on all UK and Irish races while there are casino bonuses too.
The TLCBet Verdict
The TLCBet’s Asian influence is clear to see from its logo, but it certainly doesn’t cause any negative impact to the gaming experience. If anything it ensures that the product boasts simplicity at every turn. This is true even down to the banking options that include credit cards, debit cards, NETELLER, and Skrill.
If you’re looking for a clear platform that offers quick access to betting markets and decent bet limits, TLCBet is certainly an option worth using.
