If you’re serious about making some cash from your wagers, there’s a new player in the market you should know about. We told you last year about Black Type (https://www.bettinggods.com/black-type-a-new-kind-of-bookie/) and its innovative business model and we’re impressed with their new offerings.
To give you a quick recap, Black Type says it won’t limit your account when you win like many of the other mainstream bookmakers do. This is not only an inconvenience when you need to spread bets around but it can make a serious dent in your winnings. Interested? We’ve looked at their options and we’re interested in a couple of their currently open bet types.
Their Acca Cash Bonus lets you earn a cash bonus on accumulator bets placed on several sequential events. They work in the same way as a normal accumulator bet – you choose four or more bets across any of the sports they have an interest in and you get a return if they all come in as you predicted. As usual, a single loss nullifies all the potential winnings.
The bonus with Black Type is that if you do make the right call, they’ll add a cash bonus of up to 50% on to those winnings. For example, a fold of four wins earns you an extra 5%, seven folds would be 15%, 8 folds is 20% and if Lady Luck is truly on your side and you get 13 folds (wouldn’t that be a good day) then you get the full 50% on top of your return.
There are a few provisos, but they’re not too restrictive. You need to place a single line accumulator bet where there are four or more selections. Within those bets, the odds need to be at least 1/5 (1.2) and the combined odds must be at least 3/1 (4.0) or more. Your maximum bonus winnings are capped at £5,000.
Now, I know we told you in our last post about Black Type that their model didn’t focus on free bets, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some around for loyal customers. The success of the Black Type platform is going to rely on having people support this new way of doing things, so their Black Type Free Bet Club has been set up to keep you coming back.
The premise is simple. Place 10 bets (of at least £10 at evens or more) every week – on a rolling seven-day basis – and the following week there will be a free bet available for you to use. This is available to new or existing customers and seems ideal for those of you looking to place a volume of wagers on a regular basis.
This is a sharp change from the usual practice of limiting accounts where people win too much – if you’re following a good tipster and are on to something, Black Type actively want to encourage regular betting.
Again, there are a few conditions. Where you place more than one bet on the same event, only the first qualifies towards your weekly 10 and your seven days runs from midnight on Monday to 23:59 on Sunday. The amount of your free bet depends on the size of your weekly bets, so 10 bets gets you a £10 free bet and 30 bets equals a £30 free bet. If you’re up in the 50 bets a week category, you get £50 free bet in the following seven-day period. If you don’t use it within a week, it will expire.
