TLCBet Review

The TLCBet company was founded in 2010 and for much of its early days, was focussed primarily on the Asian region. They are based in the Philippines and licensed in the Cagayan Economic Zone so this is logical but in recent months they are starting to gain more of a foothold in Europe and other target areas.
So what does the operator have to offer?

TLCBet Welcome Bonus and Ongoing Promotions

There is a £50 free bet deal waiting for new customers of TLCBet and it’s the type of offer that requires a series of qualifying stakes in order to claim it. Registration is quick as easy, as is the funding process and then you have to stake six bets of at least £10 at odds of 1.75 or longer (Each selection in qualifying combo bets must be placed at odds of 1.40 or over. ).

At the end of the process, the bookmaker will then take your lowest stake and refund that amount as a free bet so if you can back £50 each time then you will receive the maximum award under this promo.

As of September 2016 there were no additional promotions for existing customers so keep watching the news feeds to see if this changes.

Sporting Markets and Odds Value

The list of available markets is an extensive one and they are easy to locate in a logical A to Z order down the left hand side of the page. All the popular events sit alongside some interesting niches and here is that list in full:

Football, Horse Racing, Golf, Darts, Tennis, Cricket, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, Badminton, Bandy, Baseball, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Cycling, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motor Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Pool, Speedway, Surfing, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Winter Sports and Chess.

As with most bookmakers these days, eSports and Specials are thrown in to complete the list so that really is a good mix and monitoring suggests that prices are competitive, particularly in areas such as football and tennis. Horse racing also carries a Best Odds Guarantee Scheme.


This is a fairly restricted area of the TLCBet operation as the funding options here are a little limited. The good news however is that the main two eWallet providers – Neteller and Skrill – are both here but beyond that there is just the option to use any of the major debit cards.
So, if you favour any of the more obscure wallets then you’re out of luck but it is conceivable that the list will build in the future.

Customer Service

Hit the help button and you will get a list of fairly basic FAQs so if you need to go beyond this, you should use the customer service e-mail which is located via the contact button. Happily there is also a live chat operator which is the preferred choice for most players these days and the service facilities here have been found to be prompt and efficient.


There are plenty of positives and very few negatives if at all over at TLCBet. OK so the welcome bonus may look a little complicated but it can earn a £20.00 free bet and is worth following but the current lack of ongoing promos might stop some from hanging around.

However, TLCBet tick all the right boxes when it comes to markets and odds so if you want value rather than gimmicks, this is a good place to set up an account.

Pros (+)

  • Welcome Bonus of £20.00 as a free bet
  • Value for money on most markets and a Best Odds Horse Racing Guarantee
  • Good choice of customer service options although these are a little hard to locate

Cons (-)

  • A lack of ongoing promotions may deter punters from sticking around after the first bonus is claimed
