Bitcoin Sports Betting Sites
Bitcoin sportsbooks have become increasingly popular as the amount of people buying bitcoin continues to grow. Avoiding the fly by night scammers in ICO’s and gambling sites is a bit of a passion of ours, so we can all bet on sports with bitcoin as god intended.
Sports betting on desktop, iOS and Android is easy with any of the bitcoin betting sites these days, so transferring bitcoin from your favorite crypto wallet should be no problem.
As always with betting bitcoin and real money on sports, we like to have a mix of real money options and a little bitcoin sports betting occasionally.
This is because betting with bitcoin, when we believe it’s value will hit the moon, is very difficult for us when “traditional money” is great for gambling. Because we aren’t always in countries that allow gambling, we like to keep our eye out for the best options betting with “digital money.”
Ethereum Sports Betting as well as altcoin sports betting is noted below with the different bitcoin options for sports fans.
The Top 5 Bitcoin Sports Betting Sites currently are:
Bitcoin Market Betting and Mutual Betting
The difference between bitcoin betting markets, exchanges and bitcoin sportsbooks is the ability to bet against other people or create your own betting market for others to bet against you. The fee’s with exchange betting are always lower and the lines are worth checking what people what people want to bet on before placing a bet. For those matches that their are no decent bets to make, the top bookies with the best odds are usually going to get our action. Bitcoin sports betting already has enough competition that punters get lower fee’s than real money books, as long as the few fly by night and “new” sites are avoided, gambling with bitcoin should never be a problem.
Since 2013 Nitrogen has been taking bitcoin wagers, allowing gamblers to create an account, or bet anonymously in their browser for a few hours. The site works for desktop, iOS and Android betting. Every football league from the Premier League, Peruvian Primera División, V.League 1 to NFL are available to bet on at Nitrogen Sports.
If you’ve ever dreamed of betting on eSports and the Yankee’s vs. the Met’s with bitcoin anonymously (we have), then this is the place for you.
Accepting bitcoin and altcoins for Anonymous sports betting is also allowed, opening sports betting to players anywhere in the world. The sportsbet.io app has been popular with American and English sports bettors, as well as gamblers in Brazil and Chinese now that Portuguese and Chinese player support is available. Spanish, Japanese, Turkish and Thai are the other languages available with more expected to roll out soon.
Offering bitcoin deposits and real money (or bitcoin) withdrawals makes this one popular for betting in the USA. Accepting players around the world, iOS and Android bettors get a $50 free to bet with when making their first deposit.
More Bitcoin Sports Betting Options
While the top 5 generally covers everyone’s bitcoin sports betting needs, there are always a couple that are “good” betting options, even if they aren’t considered “the best” currently.
As with all of the sportsbooks we list, betting and payouts to players haven’t been a recent issue for any sports bettors on the sites. A site like Ignition may offer bitcoin betting but players being blocked from betting and their stance on Bcash make it a little difficult to suggest that is a great option for betting.
This one looks like a last resort option for betting on sports. There are tons of happy customers that bet their daily and it’s been taking bets since 2015. However there are more than a few complaints on delays with payments or customers “misunderstanding” how long these take with Cloudbet.
Offering bitcoin sports betting since 2013 and having some of the best odds for betting with bitcoin should make this a top choice for many sports bettors. The problem with Bitcoinrush.io is that they do not offer as many matches as the other bookies online, the chance to bet on half the matches most want to will usually only be available at one of the sites above. However, their lines are comparable to Pinnacle in many instances and serious bettors will usually check what they are offering before betting with another sportsbook.
Bitcoin Sports Betting Sites to Avoid
The worst sports betting sites are usually easy to spot but the few that have stolen players funds or are running illegal gambling sites to funnel mafia money do exist. We cover the real money and bitcoin sports betting sites we dislike on the main sports betting page of the site but there are so many, it’s best to just avoid any that aren’t mentioned above this area.
The amount of complaints Betcoin receives has us betting on when they will finally give up trying to please customers and pack it in.
BTCSportsbet.eu – this site was terrible and were caught scamming a bettor out of $6,700 in 2014
StakeBTC.com – was a scam, as covered by SBR, that refused to pay players winnings before closing years ago.
We’ve also tired of Carbon Sports, Bovada and Ignition sports betting odds and super slow cash outs.
1Xbet / 1Xbit is a shady bookmaker that doesn’t pay players.
Others we’ve seen but have no reason to even try include coinbet, betbtc, jetwin and fairlay. We’ll add any good sportsbooks above, if they spend enough time satisfying customers for anyone to care about.
Crypto Gambling covers bitcoin, altcoin and trading discussions for people new to crypto currencies. Along with crypto wallets, gambling in different countries and bitcoin exchanges in different countries.
This site is intended for people over the age of 18 that never gamble what they can’t afford to lose.
