They promise a bet up to a £500 liability. That is truly excellent as we know where we stand from the very start! A great rule that I wish all bookies had to follow. If they offered a few more promos I would use them full-time and wouldn't need anyone else. But my accas go to a bookie with the acca insurance just in case one lets me down as it sometimes saves me from losing too much at once. Otherwise these Blacktype boys are spot on.

Nice clean website, easy to navigate. No BOG but say they will not restrict winners so all good so far. No early prices on daily racing.

Decent odds - sometimes better than other bookies. Shame no BOG. Sounds like they may not be punter friendly after all, but I am yet to be gubbed by them. No doubt a few winning bets may change that but we'll see. For now, I can enjoy using them.

Not good for those of us who like to bet on horses overnight. I have however found their prices on horses quite favourable on a number of occasions, once priced up.

Great to have an account and not be worried about restrictions (so far). Odds are OK. Missing overnight and BOG but understandable given the pledge not to restrict. Hopefully their model survives

Early days but so far so good with Black Type. Website is one of the better of the newer players. Markets are good. Prices are generally good and occasionally market-leading. No restrictions so far but it is early days. Overall I'd recommend adding Black Type to your arsenal.

Good odds but no best odds guarantee. Which would not be an issue if their claim of not limiting customers was true. Unfortunately it is not, they will and do limit punters just like all bookmakers.

Blacktype are perhaps the future of Sportsbook betting. They don\'t offer BoG but in exchange they won\'t restrict you and will take any bet up to a £500 liability. Must admit I use others first purely for BOG where I have it but am a big fan of what blacktype are offering

Blacktype burst on the scene with the headline of no bonuses, but never limiting accounts. As someone who has had accounts limited at virtually every major bookie and a host of smaller ones, this was appealing. Yes, I would have liked a few promotions, but I could live without them if I had at least one bookmaker I could get bets of over £1 on. To date, they've lived up to that and there are also a few promotions creeping in too. Prices aren't too bad and the site is nice and clean, as well as being quick, at least for me. If only I could say the same for the big boys.

A bookmaker who takes a bet and pays on a win. No fancy stuff, straight forward betting with no aggro. Restricted total amount of win £500 but fine with me. Odds on day of event.

Graet and east website to use limit your winning to a max of £500 which is absolutely fine as you know in advance. Wish they had prices out the night before that's the only thing apart from that great site

I like them. Not got all the fancy free bets or BOG but the odds seem decent enough. Only gripe is they only price horses in the morning.

Good if you are restricted on other bookies, however I rarely use them as often you can find better deals elsewhere. But good customer service and payout.

Black Type offer very competitive odds on horse racing, often the best available. The site is very fast and easy to use. Ok so they don't offer BOG but you can't have everything. So far I've been impressed.

I use them from time to time. Down side is no BOG and no extra places at Festivals. Plus side is you know where you stand. Generic restriction of winning £500 per race for all but other than that easy to get on. Website easy to use and I\'ve found customer service and payout times first class. Would recommend.

Bookie claims it will accept bets with payout to max of £500. Within a month of joining I am now restricted to bets of £5 at any odds at all. Basically their advertising claims are lies.

Really like the way horse racing meetings are laid out on website and mobile across one bar. No early prices but quite good when they are up. Not getting restricted worth the no BOG.

I used them for 1 day and then the next day got my account closed. I emailed why and was told but i had self excluded myself from 1 of there partners , we swapped numerous emails and they provided the emails and it was shown i hadnt at all. One of there partners system was terrible and it wouldnt let me put certain details in and currency diffs etc , i said after numerous emails 'lets just forget about it , wasted to much time already' So they said no problem we will close the half opened account and leave at that. Blacktype confirmed a mistake by there partners had been made but they could do nothing about it , so come back in 2 years time ! Shame as I had liked what i had seen.

A bookie that lets you win as often as you like and not limit your account is always good news and Blacktype is no exception. While they dont have odds on racing the night before , their morning odds are very competitive and often you can equal or even beat the major bookies. They also have a good range of markets for other sports , also with competitive odds and their app is very easy to use/navigate. Have only ever had need to contact their customer service once and got a very quick and helpful reply.

One of the very few bookies I'm not banned from. A proper bookie who is straight and up front. Lets you win up to £500 per race...No more £1.23 or £0.79p allowed only this bet. There is No best odds guaranteed (BOG) but this is offset by the fact that they will actually take a bet. Never had to contact customer support but gave them four stars based upon other issues. ALL OTHER 'BOOKIES' SHOULD FOLLOW SUIT but they are probably too busy trying to rinse the people addicted to their casino and slot games...
