One of the newest bookmakers to enter the betting scene is Blackbet who launched their company is 2017. Blackbet is fully licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. The new kids in the block have entered the betting industry aiming their services at the new generation with their innovative and imaginative ideas. You can expect to find a wide array of sports included in their sportsbook and huge collection of games in their casino for all you online gamers. Below we take a closer look at what Blackbet has to offer their customers.

How to Download the Blackbet App

iOS and Android

Despite only being a new company you can find downloadable mobile apps for both iOS and Android devices although the processes are different. iOS users need to simply head over to the Apple App Store where after searching for ‘Blackbet’ will find their app ready to download for free. Being such a new app, Blackbet’s mobile app is yet to receive a rating on Apple’s App Store. Android users will need to head to Blackbet’s mobile website in order to find their free downloadable link, as Google’s restrictions won’t allow for betting apps on the Play Store.

Blackbet’s features and services can be enjoyed even if you own a device that does not support their mobile app, as their mobile website can be accessed with any smartphone.

Once downloaded, you can start browsing through Blackbet’s app which is incredibly easy to navigate around thanks to their simple and uncluttered layout. Upon opening Blackbet’s app you will be greeted with their ‘Live Now’ section which as you probably guessed, shows what sporting events are happening right now. With Blackbet’s primary focus on football, you can expect to see footballing events dominating the home page, but punters can find quick links to a selection of live events including tennis, baseball and cricket. A separate menu bar that extends from the side also contains a list of Blackbet’s available sports.

Blackbet Gambling Products

Bookmakers realise the growing demand for online gaming in the betting industry and it is a regular occurrence to find them providing an online casino – Blackbet is no exception.


Blackbet’s sportsbook is not one of the largest you can find in the betting industry right now, with them offering 25 sports. However, punters can expect to find all the most popular sports on their in amongst a number of more niche additions. One of Blackbet’s most impressive aspects is their wide array of markets available inside their provided sports. Punters will find the largest selection of markets available for football with that being their main focus. So whether you fancy taking a punt on Ukraine’s under 19’s league or testing your luck on the horse racing, you can find it with BlackBet.

Blackbet’s welcome offer for new customer certainly falls short in comparison to what other bookmakers have to offer. New Blackbet customers can get £5 in free bets when they place at least 10 qualifying bets with minimum stakes of £5.


Keeping with the times, Blackbet has provided their customers with a dedicated online casino which features over 300 games. Blackbet’s collection of games is bound to keep even the most avid online gamers entertained for countless hours, as they enjoy the smooth gameplay and graphics displayed by each one. Players will not be able to find Blackbet’s casino via their sportsbook app and will need to visit their mobile website to access their casino features. Blackbet has kept their layout simple once again with all their games in one list which players can browse. Or, for those who know what they want to play, Blackbet has provided a search bar.

Blackbet does not offer their new casino customers any welcome bonus, but players can get involved in the chance to earn a £5 bonus each week when they spend £50 between Monday and Friday in the casino.

Blackbet App Features

Bookmaker’s app features are one of the few ways they can separate themselves from the rest of the crowd, which makes it such an important aspect for all betting brands. Below you will find what features you can expect to find when using Blackbet.

Live Alerts

An important feature for any punter who likes to gamble on the move is live alerts or live notifications. With this feature, punters can go about their daily business without having to check their bets and events they have chosen to follow. Blackbet will alert you on the current ongoings in your selected event as they take place. Receiving the alerts are of course an option, so if you wish not to receive any updates then you can turn off Blackbet’s notifications.


It is clear to see that Blackbet has aimed itself at the football crowd with the majority of their markets surrounding that sport. Also, once on the app you are greeted with in-play bets and markets available for football. On top of that, Blackbet has provided their football fanatics with their own dedicated page just for football. Punters can find live and upcoming matches alongside all of their featured competitions available to bet on. Blackbet covers a huge selection of competitions, so whether you want to place a wager on the Champions League, Malaysian Super League or anything in between then Blackbet has got it.

In-Play Betting

Blackbet has realised the ever-growing market for in-play betting which is coming close to becoming more popular than pre-play betting. So, for those of you who like to take a punt on in-play bets then you will be glad to hear that blackbet provides a whole section just for live betting. Once you select, Blackbet’s ‘in-play’ tab you will be met by all the current live events you can place wagers on. Blackbet list all the events in their separate sports, starting with football of course. In-play betting is available for football, tennis, rugby, baseball, basketball, cricket and darts.


A feature that all punters will make sure their desired bookmakers have is cash-out, which is an available feature with Blackbet. Being able to cash-out your bets gives punters much more control over their money and potential winnings. With a simple aim of minimalising losses and increasing profits, cash-out is a priceless feature. The amount that is available to cash-out varies depending on a number of factors surrounding your selected event. So whether you want to cash-out a stake you have changed your mind on, or your bet has simply built up a cash prize you can not afford to lose then rest easy and ‘cash-out’ your bet.

Blackbet App Customer Support

You can find all the expected methods of customer support when dealing with Blackbet which include a live chat service, a help phone line and with email. Blackbet advises using their live chat service as your first option when in need of help. With live chat, customers can talk first hand with some of Blackbet’s helpful support agents who can solve the majority of queries. For tougher and more specific problems customers should get in contact via telephone. When using email, customers should be prepared to wait up to 48 hours for a response.

Blackbet is also on both Facebook and Twitter where they can take queries, but this method can lead to the longest response times.

Final Words on the Blackbet App

After reviewing what Blackbet has to offer, we have to say we are impressed with what they have got for such a new company. Their simple layout for both mobile app and website makes an easy experience for even the newest of punters and their incredibly dense selection of markets is certain to keep even the most avid gamblers entertained. For those who are not football fans, you will find your betting options are more limited and their promotions fall very short in comparison to other bookmakers. Nevertheless, Blackbet has got a strong platform to improve on and should be a bookmaker you consider if you love football.
