Although they haven't been around as long as some of the bigger boys Titanbet have a surprisingly complete all round betting site. Powered and operated by Playtech the bookmaker as a whole have a fantastic package for the user. The interface is sleek and easy to use with a full list of markets and all the features you would expect as an average punter.
Titanbet are perfectly suited to any one who bets regularly, with fantastic offers and loyalty free bet promotions. The site is fully stocked with markets, is easy to get around and looks very slick. The bookmaker doesn't just focus on the usual footy and racing markets either, with tons of depth and great deals for lovers of darts, snooker, golf, tennis, cricket, you name it, if you fancy betting on any sport Titanbet have very good markets and promotions for all punters.
UK Closure Notice: Titanbet is now closed to the UK market, don't worry if you like the product you can find identical features, lines and deals over at sister brand Winner.
- Site For Serious Bettors - Higher stake value rewards compared to others
- Good loyalty rewards and regular customer offers on all sports and events
- Powered by Playtech this is one of the best looking and most functional betting sites
Titanbet itself was launched in 2009 but the brand has been around since 2004 with Titan Poker. For quite a while the brand was most well-known for its successful Casino and gaming products although the sportsbook is now starting to take this mantle. The bookmaker has carried over a huge amount of experience and knowledge from their gaming operations to create a fantastic user oriented sports betting site.
Titanbet are based Antigua and Barbuda and possesses a full UK gambling commission licence. The bookmaker is licenced and operated through Playtech (PT Entertainment Services Limited) who are based in the Isle of Man and owned by Hardway Investments LTD also based in Antigua.
Playtech are the world's largest gaming software developer online and you can immediately see the wealth of talent and resources that have been invested in the Titanbet brand. Playtech are listed on the FTSE 250 and were founded back in 1999 employing over 5,500 people in the Isle of Man.
There is not much more to tell about Titanbet except to say that they have decided to focus on the user from the outset. In the same style as some of the other smaller bookies we list, such as ComeOn, this operator reward customer loyalty with regular but yet sensible, clear and achievable offers. Unlike other online bookmakers however Titanbet have a broad perspective with markets and promotions on a huge range of sports, not just the money sports of football and horse racing. A great addition to any betting site portfolio.
Interface and Appearance
Impressive is all I can say. The Titanbet interface is simply one of the best I've used for clarity, speed, easy navigation and basic looks. The desktop site is loaded on a slick black background with markets and features displayed in grey and grass coloured green.
Odds are really easy to see with a decent sized font and generally displayed in green or white on grey or black background. Markets are easy to find in the right hand menu that contains useful favourites and quick links as well as an A-Z sports list.
The central panel contains latest in play markets and top betting events, all big enough to see but yet not so over the top that you spend hours scrolling. The feature I like the most is the central highlights panel that scrolls through top markets and latest offers. This is one of the most useful types of these features I have seen on a betting site and it is genuinely very functional saving punters a lot of time finding offers and top lines to bet on. The highlights panel has a secondary effect of keeping the rest of the page free of offers and features creating the overall clean and clear look.
Live betting is equally as good. The best aspect has to be the clarity of the system that allows you to find your bets in no time. The flash in play service is not quite as fast as the homepage and in general is better on mobile, but still very good. You can actually load a basic view however that is one of the fastest live betting services available.
All other sections of the site follow a similar pattern. You can see the system has been designed just as much for the user as for the bookmaker. The mobile app is a pleasure to use, maybe even more so than the main site. Virtually every feature is available through the app, read more in the mobile section further down this page.
A betting site doesn't get listed on this website if they don't have a good variety of markets. Titanbet have most lines a standard punter would expect to see. It's not just the markets provided that is impressive but the breakdown of these markets. Titanbet do an excellent job at portioning large sports like football into easy navigable menu options. It makes finding what you want to bet on an absolute breeze.
Actually, since Titanbet have a more global outlook they even offer events not so well covered by UK only focuses bookies. Bet on cycling, handball, etc., without missing out on all the typical markets you expect. In fact, for those punters that like very British markets like snooker, darts, cricket, horse racing and football this is one of the better betting sites you will find for range and particularly for offers.
Titanbet provide the following betting markets: American football, Australian rules football, baseball, basketball, boxing & wrestling (inc UFC/MMA), cricket, cycling, darts, eSports, football, golf, greyhound racing, handball, horse racing, ice hockey, motor racing (F1, motorbikes and others), rugby (union and league), snooker, speedway, table tennis, tennis and volleyball (+ beach).
For those that like to bet on specials, entertainment and politics then Titanbet have all the usual markets you would expect and more. This makes a nice change as many serious bookmakers with nice sleek interfaces (like BetVictor and Betway) for example don't provide great novelty lines. With Titanbet you get the best of both worlds with a profession style yet they are not so serious about themselves that they don't provide more fun lines to wager on.
Finally when it comes to virtual markets, wow, Titanbet have a lot to give. If you like betting on virtuals this is definitely a site for you. You can even get loyalty rewards for regular virtuals betting,
Prices at Titanbet are a bit of a mixed bag. I wouldn't say they (and they don't claim to be) odds beaters in the same way as BetVictor and Bet365 often are, on the other hand odds prices tend to be around average so you know you are not getting a bad price at least.
The real added value at Titanbet comes from their regular promotions. They have so many genuinely good regular promos if you bet on similar lines each week they can massively enhance your returns. This is especially true for sports like snooker, darts, cricket, etc., where you simply can't get many deals elsewhere.
When it comes to your main sports like football, horse racing, tennis and golf if you are just looking for the best odds price you may be better off elsewhere but once you factor in loyalty free bets you may find Titanbet are surprisingly competitive.
As we always recommend at OnlineBetting.org.uk you should have accounts with a few bookies at least, this way you can find the best betting site for you on a wager by wager basis. If you do sign up with this site I promise you will find yourself betting with Titanbet more than you might imagine.
Minimum / Maximum Bets and Payouts
Titanbet do not offer the highest limits around but they do have some of the clearest limits around. With some bookies they hide their payout limits so deep that you are almost suspicious as to why, with Titanbet however you will find payouts, like the rest of the site, easy to find and clear.
For most top sports, e.g horse racing and football the maximum limit is £50,000 for major markets. This can drop down to £20,000 for sports like darts and snooker. Being honest this is something Titanbet could improve on but then again this is higher than the average punter will ever need.
The maximum you can win in any given bet is £100,000, just to bear in mind if you are placing any massive accas.
Minimum stake is low at just £0.10 and maximum stake is relative to maximum payout.
Live Betting and Streaming
Live In Play Betting
As I said in the interface section this is one of the best live betting services available right now. The system is exceptionally clear fast and useful. The desktop flash version (pictured) can be a little annoying and I will often switch to the basic view, which being honest is hardly that basic and completely functional. On mobile in play betting is simply brilliant and I couldn't recommend it more.
On both desktop and mobile it is easy to find your in play market, odds and lines are very easy to see and update rapidly. In terms of coverage then you will not be disappointed, live betting is provided for every applicable sport and the live feed is just as good as any other out there too. The calendar system showing upcoming events is also top notch.
Titanbet have blog, magazine and betting tips features that certainly, if used well, can only serve to enhance the in play service. These extras are again set up with the user in mind, when you use them you don't get the feeling that they are trying to get you to bet and that makes a nice change. These articles are on the whole well written too and better than most comparable features with other sites.
Live streaming is available for any UK or Irish horse race so long as you've placed a £1+ bet, but you can do this with most operators now. On top of this there is not much else in the way of streaming.
I certainly don't blame them, streaming is an expensive service to provide for online bookmakers and Titanbet have instead focused on getting the main things right first, I am sure in the future they will add more streaming.
Remember you can always stream through one bookie and bet with another, yet another reason to have accounts with several betting sites, all with different qualities.
Brilliant app. Powered by Playtech you can see the level of development that has gone into the service. The mobile app and website do everything the main site done and sometimes even more. In play betting in particular is a revelation when betting with Tianbet. Personally I choose to place most of my bets through the mobile app.
Mobile betting with Titanbet follows the same ethos as betting online. The app is clean with very easy to see lines and odds, tons of markets but yet great navigation and speed. Not far from perfect really. The top menu bar scrolls with top sports shown with big and clear icons. Navigating between sections is really easy and finding your banking options or bet history is a breeze.
Other bookmakers should take note here, it is incredible how Titanbet are able to give you all of the markets you will see on the desktop site while keeping all the lines, events and odds big and clear enough to see. Offers and promotions are also easily visible, this is great because with some operators mobile apps it is difficult to find the latest deals often forcing you onto desktop.
Streaming of horse racing is available on mobile as is virtual betting and full banking and account access. Tianbet have separate apps for other products such as Casino and Poker, these as far as I can tell are just as stylish and easy to play with as all of the other Titanbet products.
Given the fact you can get loyalty free bets for placing your wagers by mobile there is little reason to use the main site.
Cash Out is very much becoming the norm now, that doesn't mean to say however that all Cash Out features are equal. Titanbet provide Cash Out on all major markets and events. In the same style as the in play service the cash out system is great with this bookie. It is easy to see what markets cash out is available for and once you have an active wager it is very simple to find the cash out value in the open bets section next to the bet slip.
If you haven't used Cash Out before it is an excellent feature that adds a new tactical dimension to betting. For example, you have placed a £10 bet at 4/1 for West Brom to beat Manchester United with a possible return of £50. West Brom are leading 1-0 with 10 minutes to go and Cash Out is giving you £36, you think Man U might grab a late equaliser and you decide to cash out. Cash Out amounts will always be less than the money you could win should you allow the bet to go to completion but it does allow punters to have more control of their wagers. Cash Out lets you mitigate your own risk.
Gaming and Casino
Considering the heritage of Titanbet and the fact that they are powered by Playtech then you can already imagine they would have a great casino. If you are a punter that likes a very good sports feature but you also like to play with other products such as games, casino and poker then frankly there are not many better overall betting sites.
The casino sign up bonus is very attractive too and can be found towards the top of this review. Note while you can transfer funds between products you can transfer bonus funds so if you decide to take the casino sign up offer you will not be able to wager the bonus on sports.
Titanbet have, for me, the perfect balance when it comes to their social media features. They have very popular facebook and twitter pages (@titanbet) that are updated several times a day. You can find all of the latest Titanbet promotions and top markets here but there is also a nice balance of general interest posts that makes its feel like a legitimate thread rather than juts a sales feature.
The social media service is perfect for those that want to use it but yet for those that want to be left alone and just want a professional betting site Titanbet will let you be.
Titanbet are unique in that they are smaller than many of the biggest operators yet they are able to provide a service that is at least equally as good. This is an online bookmaker of a new age, a betting site of the future not shackled by history as many of the big old names like William Hilll, Ladbrokes and Coral are. A thoroughly modern design, fully functional and a smart interface that collapses a lot of markets into a small space.
The Titanbet promotions are also achievable and sensible for regular bettors, this creates long term loyalty both ways. Most money back promotions, for example, are up to around £25, most free loyalty free bets require you to place tens not hundreds of bets too.
Payment Options Deposit/Withdrawal
Yet another example where Titanbet focus on the user by making their banking options clear, easy to find and ultimately easy to understand. Deposit methods for example are shown as a tab on the main menu bar next to promotions. This tells you the bookie is serious about being open and honest.
Titanbet is a European betting site but from the UK you can currently only bet in Great British Pounds (GBP).
Generally the minimum deposit limit is £10, although surprisingly for Titanbet this information is a little difficult to find for some methods. There are no stated maximum limits. All standard card and eWallet payment methods are taken including some other less well known services. For details on how to bet using various payment methods see our banking section.
Being an online only betting site you can not bet directly in cash but you can use cash voucher services such as PaySafeCard or fund just using your mobile number with services such as Boku.
- Major Debit and Credit cards
- Visa and Visa Electron
- Skrill (moneybookers)
- Bank transfer
You can use bank cards, bank transfer and PayPal to withdraw from your account. You can withdraw up to a maximum of £10,000 every 48 hours and up to £100,000 in any one month. No fees are issued for any withdrawal methods.
Minimums are not openly stated but from experience the minimum is £10 for most payment methods. Whatever the withdrawal method Titanbet state it can take them 2 days to process the transaction, this means even instant services like PayPal can take up to three days.
First of all the automated FAQ help section is one of the best. This means you can often find answers to simple queries within seconds. It does annoy me when you have to contact support with very basic questions because the help section is not good enough, this is not the case with Titanbet.
Should you need to contact support then the bookmaker have every option available. There is a free phone number, a postal address, several email addresses depending on what you need and live chat. The phone service is available 8am-midnight with really friendly and knowledgeable staff on the line.
I do have a gripe here though. The live chat service promises to get back to you within 24 hours 'if not agents are available'. This is not live chat, rather glorified email and I do hope Titanbet will get a better live chat service up and running soon.
