10Bet first sprung on to the betting scene in 2003 when they launched their then state of the art betting portal. Since then the company have continued to both develop and grow their sportsbook and now boast one of the most complete in the industry.
One of the biggest selling points for the company is an emphasis on welcoming higher stakes bettors, publicly advertising their £100,000 bet limit, which is considerably higher than most. That being said, they do cater well for the lower limit players and in turn provide a real mix of a customer database spanning over 90 countries around the world.
These days the company is based out of Malta and hold licenses with both the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK gambling Commission, both outlining their determination to bring a fair and secure gaming environment for all players.
Another fairly recent addition to the 10Bet betting armory is that of the their cash out feature. Cash Out means that you can settle a bet before the result of the bet has been confirmed. It’s worth noting that not all bets can be cashed out, but you will see immediately in your bet slip if your bet can be cashed out at any stage of that bet.
One of the highlights for 10Bet punters will be the ability to bet on a number of American based sports, more specifically American Football, Basketball, Baseball and Ice Hockey. Whilst these aren’t new sports to the UK betting scene, the depth that 10Bet goes into with each sport has to be commended. They don’t just cover the major leagues either, they have games from as low a level as high school and work their way up through college and obviously into the pro leagues.
Finally, we wanted to make you aware of the fact that 10Bet now have a fully downloadable app from the App Store for Apple users. The app includes all sports and markets that you would find on their online betting site, but obviously is much more honed in for using on your smartphone device. Users of Android smartphones will also be able to use the site on their phone, but there is no downloadable function for this, merely a mobile friendly betting site.
What Happened to… Real Deal Bet?
RealDealBet (or Real Deal Bet, we were never quite sure how it was supposed to be written) was a pretty unique bookmaker for one key reason; it had 5 time heavy weight champion of the world Evander ‘The Real Deal’ Holyfield as the brand ambasador. To be brutally honest, it was a bit of a bizarre connection, simply because you don’t see many former athletes from any sport simply set up a bookmaker, especially one that was actually pretty good.
The site has since closed down, taking its last bets in early 2018. Since it was a sister site of 10Bet, it seemed a logical move to migrate all of the RDB accounts over to 10Bet, hence their inclusion in this review. So if you used to have a RealDealBet account, chances are it was moved to 10Bet. Check your emails for further information or ask customer support.
