These will be the first thing you see from their backend.
This is backward compared to how most bookies have their navigation setup. You usually choose your sport, then the types of bets and odds you want.
So I spent the first couple of minutes confused.
Once you get past that you’ll be able to choose the sports you want to bet on. Here are your options:
This is a much smaller – much weaker – selection of markets than you’ll find at other books. But you’ll be alright if you only bet the core markets.
Then from here you’ll choose the types of bets you want to make. It’ll depend on the sport, of course. But some of the options I came across included: Stanly Cup Odds, 1st Halves, Western Conference, etc.
And once you get over the navigation betting was straightforward.
The only other thing I wish they’d add is a betting slip. The type of bet slip other books have – the kind that sit on the right-hand side and tell you how much can win.
One thing I did like, though, is their page on betting rules. You can learn how they handle bets, pay them out, cancel them and so on. Definitely give this page a read if you’re not familiar with how most books do things.
From there I decided to check out their casino.
I mean, I tried too.
Every time I tried I got an https error. I contacted support to ask them about it (they were very helpful, by the way) and they said they’d fix it within the half-hour.
But I checked the next day and it was still down. Sad.
Apparently there are 50 games to play though.
Maybe next time.
The Pros & Cons
Here’s a TLDR; of the things I liked the most…and… the things I liked the least about Bitbm.com.
They accept American customers.
You can make live bets.
They don’t have a mobile-friendly site or app.
Their casino failed – miserably – each time I checked it out.
They don’t have any promotions.
Their sign up process is confusing… and unnerving.
Let me explain that last point.
Their sign up form looks like your everyday contact form. They ask for a password, email and a message. Then you’re to submit the form and wait to hear if you’re approved.
You don’t need to include a message. And you’re approved automatically.
So I was thrown off.
And just a FYI – be sure to write down the customer number they give you because they don’t send you an email with this information in it.
If you do run into any problems then you can try contacting them by live chat. You might also send them an email at: [email protected].
