It’s been ages since I’ve gambled, probably since my honeymoon in Vegas. My luck with Evolved toys has been more hit than miss, and having tried another Evolved vibrator from this new line, I didn’t think I’d have bad odds with the Bet On Black, and I was excited to review this one for EdenFantasys.
The Bet On Black comes in a wonderful clear plastic box that’s ideal for storage. It has product information on the sides and back, and the vibrator is visible inside. The lid is held on by 2 hinges and is removable.
The coloring on this vibrator is exquisite. The silicone shaft is a matte black with just a bit of drag, and the plastic base is a vibrant red accented with black on the top and on the wheel for a truly striking look.
The Bet On Black is 8” long, with 5” of insertable length. It has a diameter of 1 5/8”, which is a pleasant, filling size. The shaft has gentle swirls that run from the rounded tip to the base, reminiscent of a soft serve ice cream cone. The swirls don’t add a lot of stimulation, but they feel pleasant when the toy is twisted inside. Bet On Black is squishy and quite flexible through the shaft for easy insertion with a water-based lubricant. This vibrator should not be used anally due to its lack of a flared base.
This vibrator runs on 2 AA batteries, which are inserted by turning the base about 1/4 of a turn to open it. The battery direction is clearly labeled. An inner O-ring and another O-ring on the base ensure that the Bet On Black can be used in the shower or bath.
The Bet On Black features the signature innovation of this Evolved line: the control wheel. Suspended in the center of the base, the wheel controls the toy’s vibrations. These vibrations are all steady, and go from a gentle sensation to very intense when the wheel is dialed to the maximum. The wheel spins about 3/4 of the way around. It’s not easy to spin the wheel by mistake, but if you do it’s easy to spin it back up or down to the vibration level you prefer.
The vibrations are throbby and resonate nicely from the tip through the shaft. Their strength in the tip makes the Bet On Black great to use as a clitoral stimulator as well. The vibrations can also be felt in the base, although not so strongly to make the Bet On Black uncomfortable to hold. While powerful, the Bet On Black is quiet – much quieter than my vibrating cell phone. When it’s inserted it can barely be heard.
This vibrator is made from silicone and plastic, and it is nonporous, phthalates-free, hypo-allergenic and latex free. It has no scent or taste. The silicone, motors, and all parts are from Europe, and the toy is assembled in Europe as well. The Bet On Black can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water, or a toy cleaner can also be used. It should be dried with a soft, dry cloth. The box it comes in is ideal for storing it when not in use.
So, Is It Worth It? It definitely is! The color scheme is fantastic – it’s easy to coordinate an entire look, from clothing to toys (since I have so much in red and black). I love how quiet this one is, and how effective. While it doesn’t target my g-spot, it feels great both internally and externally. I love the finish of the silicone. Since it has a bit of a drag to it, the Bet On Black can be used with the Liberator Wing (my favorite toy accessory) successfully for hands-free fun.
I really love the control wheel and the vibration intensity. The wheel is much easier to use than a standard dial base. I had no problems when using this in the bath with water getting into the battery compartment, so it does appear to really be waterproof.
This is a wonderful vibrator! If you want to bet on a good quality, strong toy, Bet On Black.
