Blackbet Sportsbook Review
As a brand, Blackbet caters to the UK and Nigerian markets with two domains dedicated to the respective countries. Here, we’re focusing on the UK-licensed operation. Powered by the FSB Technology platform, the sportsbook offers an array of odds on numerous sporting and special events in an easily navigated system. Overall, the design is modern and, of course, mobile friendly. We’d also like to point out the range of promotions available as users will find quite a selection, which, unfortunately, tends to be rather uncommon for online bookies especially when other products are featured. Speaking of products, this brand is also associated with an online casino complete with table games, video poker and slots from the hottest providers such as Microgaming, NextGen, SG Interactive and more.
Tip: In order to cashout, bettors must meet two criteria to avoid a 5% processing fee (minimum £3). There must be financial activity on the account greater than or equal to 50% of the amount deposited.
- Cash Out feature available
- In-Play odds offered
- Numerous promotional offers for sports
- Low minimum deposit and betting limits
- Only players from Great Britain and Northern Ireland are allowed to register, deposit and place bets
- No VIP Program available for UK players (Nigerian version only)

Cash Out Feature
While not offered on all markets, the Cash Out feature is accessible on numerous singles and multiples bets. When available, you’ll see the icon. So, what is this thing called ‘Cash Out’? In a nutshell, you can opt to settle your original bet to guarantee either a profit or loss prior to the end of the event. Let’s say that things are looking good for a bet you’ve placed. This feature allows you to guarantee a payout, or even a lesser loss, before the final result. Anything can happen, right? Think of it as a bit of wager insurance. On the flip side, the bookie also benefits by paying out a reduced amount as compared to what you’d get if you’d waited for the completion of the event. Giving punters the opportunity to take a reduced loss also eliminates the possibility of paying out should you win by chance.
Upon submitting a Cash Out request, they’ll send you a notification confirming the approval as they’re not guaranteed to accept it in the event that the market suspends or the odds change before the settlement has been processed. Keep in mind that in-play cash out requests can take a bit longer to process due to the delay associated with this type of bet.

Wrapping up, this bookie has a fair reputation. They aren’t yet known as one of the most reputable online bookies on the scene as of yet, but the general consensus is that it’s decent. The overall focus on the UK market may be viewed as a negative, but only UK residents are permitted to register anyway. The range of sporting events covered is really good and gives bettors a wide variety of choice. As always, we urge you to read the T&C’s prior to registration and first deposit.
