Titan Bet Review
TitanBet is a company that have been around the gambling industry for over a decade now. When they first sprung on to the market their main focus was in online poker, however, as the company have progressed it’s seen a natural expansion to sports betting, casino and now even bingo operations.
The company are now based out of the Philippines, but they hold their gambling license with the UK Gambling Commission, who are one of the largest regulators of online gambling.
TitanBet is actually completely powered by PlayTech, and in turn it’s these guys who are behind each aspect of the site, including the sportsbook, bingo room and the online casino, of which we will discuss throughout this article.
Sports Betting at TitanBet
The sports betting side of the company is one that’s seen huge improvement in more recent times. In fact, for a long time TitanBet (or simply ‘Titan’ as they used to be known) didn’t have anything to do with sports betting, but as we mentioned, it’s been a natural progression for them to start occupying this marketplace.
The sports book will be available online, but you will also be able to download the app the App Store for iOS users and also via the website for Android users. Alternatively, you can simply visit the sportsbook in your mobile browser and you will then be directed to the mobile ready app.
Sport Welcome Bonus
The welcome bonus on offer from TitanBet is a 100% match on your opening deposit worth up to £50. All you need to do is open your account, make your first deposit of £10 or more and then place your first bet matching the amount of your deposit at odds of 1.5 or greater. Once the bonus is in your account you will need to wager through this amount 7 times before being able to withdraw at minimum odds of 1.5.
Odds and Markets
As still a relatively young company in the sports betting industry, it can be tough for bookmakers such as TitanBet to really find their feet. One of the best and easiest ways for most bookmakers is to simply offer up a great pricing structure. Whilst we wouldn’t go as far as saying that TitanBet’s pricing is great, we would say that it was solid and generally pretty competitive in the market.
But, one area in which they do shine with their pricing is the number of enhanced bets you can get as an existing user. They have a number of specials sections that allow you to see which markets fro each day have been enhanced, the number vary from day to day, but in the midst of a major tournament, you can often find some really good deals. Whilst the pricing structure on the whole is above average, the inclusion of these enhancements, especially for exiting users, just moves them up another notch.
The market coverage on offer is very good and it’s here where they can easily challenge pretty much any bookmaker in the industry. To be honest, this is a pretty simple aspect to a bookmaker that can be added and used to improve it, so we weren’t expecting anything less.
You’re going to be getting a good range of sports to bet on, with football and horse racing being the main sports in terms of depth. Outside of these you will be getting a good range of tennis, cricket, basketball, American Football, darts and even snooker markets to bet. Other sports included that don’t have the same coverage are Australian Rules football, politics, beach volleyball, rugby union and golf. As we said, they don’t have huge range of markets for these sports, but their inclusion is still welcomed.
The in-play betting section is an area that’s seen a massive improvement since they first hit the market and they now send hundreds of markets in-play everyday. Again, the range of markets will vary from each sport, with football being the most populated sport of them all. We loved the design of the in-play section as well, and the way it links to the match centre to see real time scores and events in a game was a great addition.
TitanBet have introduced an Odds-On coupon to their sportsbook and it’s a feature that we really enjoyed. It allows you to see a list of all the bets throughout the day that are odds on and then make selections for that list to create an accumulator bet. Everyone knows that the acca bet is one of the most popular forms of betting these days and this is a great way to add together several safe bets and making them a little more appealing in terms of odds.
The company have been keen to make their bookmaker into more of a community rather than a sportsbook and whether they have achieved this, well remains to be seen. But, a feature they installed to try and achieve this feat is the addition of their sports betting tips section.
What we liked about this is that you could see an overview of bets that TitanBet thought were good value, but it also includes a little synopsis of why they have picked these bets. Who the people are behind the tips, we don’t know (assume TitanBet employees), but after sifting through a fair few the tips look well researched and well informed, without any obvious bias to a certain sport or market that they might be trying to promote.
Finally we wanted to highlight the use of their new betting blog. This isn’t to dissimilar to the betting tips section, but the write-ups are much more in-depth and also includes some TitanBet ambassadors such as legendary England footballer, John Barnes. The articles are a great read and when you get insights from ex professionals in their field, it always makes for interesting reading.
£25 Tennis Winning Boost
At TitanBet if you place a live double on any of their tennis matches then they will give you a winning boast of 10% worth up to £25. All you need to do is place two in-play bets on any tennis matches and for that bet to be successful. Once it is, the bookmaker will add 10% to your winnings for you to use on any sport from within their sportsbook.
Horse Racing Boost
Similar to the tennis promotion above, if you place a multiple bet that includes 3 or more selections on any horse race you will be able to get a 10% boost on your winnings worth up to £20. The money will hit your account as free bet and can only be used at odds of 8.0 or less.
Casino Games at TitanBet
The casino section of the site has been around a lot longer than the sportsbook and is arguably more established as well. It does feel like a really polished online casino and comparing it some of the bigger names in the industry, it certainly manages to hold it’s own.
In 2014 the casino went through a massive overhaul in terms of both the games that it offers and the design of the casino. The work that was carried out has been a credit to TitanBet and the functionality of the site, something that had originally let them down, is now one of their biggest selling points in our opinion at least.
Casino Welcome Bonus
When you register a new account at the TitanBet casino you will be able to take advantage of their £400 welcome bonus. The bonus will work as a 100% on your initial deposit worth up to £200. Then within 24 hours you will receive a 50% refund bonus worth up to another £200.
The two bonuses will need to be wagered through before being able to withdraw. The first part of the bonus will need to played through 30 times before withdrawal and the second part will need to wagered through 50 times. You will have 30 to clear the first part and just 7 days to clear the second part.
Software and Games
PlayTech powers the software at TitanBet and it’s these guys who have as big a say as anyone when it comes to the games that are on offer. In fact, it would be fair to say that PlayTech probably have more influence over the games on TitanBet than any other online casino, but it’s for reasons we aren’t fully aware of. The suggests that PlayTech may have some sort of part ownership of TitanBet, although we aren’t able to back up this statement with any concrete evidence.
But, a partnership with PlayTech certainly isn’t a bad thing and you will often find that TitanBet is used as the guinea pig, if you will, for their new games. It’s for this exact reason why players who are constantly looking for fresh, new titles come to TitanBet to play their casino games.
They have over 200 slots on offer at any one time, which we think is a really great number; not too big, not too small. The games that are on there are first class as well with classic such as Gladiator, Rainbow Riches and Winnings of Oz. We loved the way you could select the new games that they have on offer there as well, keeping everything feeling fresh. We know that PlayTech like to try and release one new slot every month, so it’s worth keeping an eye on this section if you are looking to try something new.
The table games on offer hold a good amount as well, with no complaints and the likes of blackjack, roulette, pai gow, baccarat, red dog and many more all on offer. They also offer up plenty of live dealer games as well, which are mainly made up of blackjack and roulette variants, but also Casino hold’em, sic bo and baccarat.
Mobile Casino Games
TitanBet are able to offer their punters a dedicated casino app to download. You can either get this from the website by scanning the QR code or simply hitting up the casino in your smartphones browser, whichever is easier.
Another great thing about PlayTech is that the majority of their games are mobile friendly, meaning that it allows TitanBet to add a larger catalogue of casino games for mobile than the majority of their competitors.
TitanBet casino loves to throw around double points days on selected games. They often change up the games that are on offer, but the promotion usually runs throughout every Sunday. You will need to go to their website to see which games are running for each day.
It would probably help to know what the points are for, wouldn’t it? Well, as the pun goes, points make prizes! And at TitanBet that is no different with their VIP program. The program will allow you work through different levels of ranking and with each level you will unlock more features and just generally cool things.
The ranks are Club, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Premier. Some of the features that you can unlock are extra bonuses, VIP upgraded bonuses, loyalty bonuses, faster withdrawals, high withdrawal amounts and high comp to cash conversion rates.
It’s probably fair to say that poker is what the company have been best known for through the years. It may no longer be the case, but they are still one of the biggest poker rooms on the biggest poker network that is iPoker. You’re going to be able to claim a massive first deposit bonus worth up to £1,200 when you register a new account and also take advantage of some of the best features in the poker industry with their all-new software.
The bingo hall has been one of the company’s latest ventures and with it comes a plethora of games to enjoy. 75, 80 and 90 ball game variants are all on offer here in to what’s now one of the most exciting bingo rooms in the industry. On top of that you will be able to take advantage of a £40 welcome package for new accounts, which is one of the largest in the bingo sector!
There are a good range of payments methods on offer at TitanBet, including Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Neteller, Bank Transfer, Entropay, Paysafecard and Boku. All deposits are free of charge and will be processed instantly, apart form bank transfer, which can take 1-5 business days.
