Games and Software

There are big names involved behind the scenes in the software development for Black Type. You can’t get more of a giant than Microgaming, and they are joined by NextGen Gaming, Realistic Games, Big Time Gaming, Lightning Box, and Foxium.

A lot of people go to online casinos to try their luck at the slots games. There are dozens of types of slots, and everyone enjoys something different. For some, three reel slots are the simplest and most fun kind of game. For others, they won’t play anything less than 5 reel, with multi line payouts available, or video themes which remind them of their favourite movies and brands. Some love their progressive jackpots, watching the potential prize climb towards the £1 million mark, and others enjoy instant wins like scratch cards.

Here at Black Type, there is a good selection of all of the above. The games are easily categorized to help you find the slots you love, and they load quickly and look great on the site. You’re just one click away from going exploring with the Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt, walking with the Dinosaurs in Prehistoric times, or sailing the seven seas on a Pirates Ship. And if you’re very lucky, you’re not too far from your own buried treasure either.

Some of the best slots you can enjoy include:

  • Silver Lioness
  • Danger High Voltage
  • Extra Chilli
  • Jurassic World
  • Hellboy
  • Playboy
  • Medusa
  • Dragonz
  • Starquest
  • Lucky Leprechaun

There are 7 jackpot games, which are:

As well as the fun slots and jackpots, you can play table games like Blackjack and Roulette in dozens of variations. Like Blackjack? You’ll love Blackjack Lucky Lucky or Blackjack Gold.

Also on offer is a range of video poker. For a new casino who is just learning the ropes of online gaming, Black Type is doing a great job of choosing games that their players will love, and giving a strong selection. We can’t wait to see what they do next.

Live Casino

Once you’re a member of Black Type, you can enjoy the live casino! Live casino games are fantastic for anyone who enjoys offline gaming, and wants to recreate the experience from the comfort of their own home, or the small screen in their pocket. You can watch real life dealers laying cards and spinning that Roulette wheel, and play all your favourite table games without needing to get out of your pyjamas. What’s not to like?

The Black Type live casino has a handful of different games, from regulars to some a little more out of the box. You can play Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and a few kinds of Poker, such as Casino Hold ‘Em, Three Card Poker, and Caribbean Stud. You can also play Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, and Money Wheel Dream Catcher!

User Interface

Black Type is a good casino choice for beginners, because it’s not huge, and it’s simple to use. Everything you need can be found under the casino tab, which then splits off into slots, table games, jackpots, blackjack, roulette, video poker, all games, and the live casino. There is also a tab for new games on Black Type, which makes it simple to find out what the latest offerings are. You can see Featured Games right from the casino home page, which all have helpful captions like ‘popular’ or ‘new’ to explain why they might be attracting so much attention.

If you need any help, you can get in touch directly, but you won’t find a help centre to troubleshoot on your own. The site is very simple in design and not complicated to navigate, so if you’re used to online gaming, it’s unlikely you’ll find yourself confused!

Mobile Casino

We’re a fan of any mobile casino which is responsive for the small screen. You can simply head to your phone browser and search for Black Type, and you’ll be able to play many of your much loved slots and table games from your phone or tablet.

If you’re using an apple device, like an iOS iPhone or an iPad, you can download the popular mobile app, which is built for iOS and offers all the games you enjoy with the best user interface and functionality you could imagine. The screen will be seamlessly split into slots or table games, and you can choose to play for real money or for practice, right there from the app. The app also shows your balance from the top of the screen. If you’re into sports, it also has sections for horses and sports betting.

Gamification

Most casinos are new to gamification, which usually offers players the chance to compete on leaderboards in missions, tournaments and games that offer extra rewards and prizes, or just the kudos that comes with being high up on the list of players! Some casinos keep it simple, with comp points that can rack up the more you play, or VIP clubs for members who achieve certain goals.

Here at Black Type, you won’t find any of this. They are a newcomer to the casino side of things, and we anticipate they will be adding plenty of new functionality on top of their prize winning games soon.

Promotions

You will however, find some promotions at Black Type. These vary from Welcome Bonuses to encourage new players to sign up, to themed rewards to do with their betting and sports offerings.

We would love to see some more variety in their promotions. Some examples of great promotions from other casinos include extra rewards for playing a particular game, (encouraging players to try out something less popular, or new to the site) or offering various promotions and offers for the different days of the week. This last one encourages people to play every day, and can be a great way to encourage loyalty from your members.

We’re sure that the casino has plans to launch some more promotions in the future, so advise that you watch this space, and keep checking the latest promotion page on the site.

Banking

You want as many payment and deposit options as you can get when you’re enjoying the casino, and unfortunately, Black Type only offers Visa and MasterCard, albeit in a few variations! There are no eWallets at all, which includes PayPal, and they don’t offer Bank Transfers or Cheques. Withdrawals take a standard 3-5 days, plus there are pending times to consider, of between 24 and 48 hours. We would love to see a few more payment options appearing on the site, specifically eWallets or other simple transfer methods. For now, most people have credit or debit cards, and Black Type offer a safe and secure medium for both deposit and withdrawal using this method.

Customer Support
  • Live Chat: No
  • Email: info@blacktype.bet
  • Telephone: N/a
  • FAQ: No
  • Availability: via contact us form for members

 The customer service could be stronger at Black Type. There is no live chat, which is most players preferred method of contact when they need help. They also don’t offer a telephone number either, or a call back service. You can either email the website directly, or once you’re a member, you can reach out via contact us form from your account page.

Our Verdict

For a new casino, Black Type is doing alright. They have a great selection of games, and already offer a mobile app for iOS which puts them head and shoulders above many other mobile casinos. However, they definitely need more payment types, and stronger customer support, plus a plan to revitalize their promotions and rewards before we think any of the big names in online gaming will be watching their backs.
