BurnBet can boast of an extensive market of sports from across the globe as well as good live betting options. It is also a Bitcoin sport betting site which caters for Bitcoin withdrawal and Bitcoin deposits.
BurnBet appear to be a new kid on the block having established themselves in 2016. They are licensed by the Government of Curacao and their website offers as a License Number which they have been granted as proof of such, although they do not show a copy of the certificate; an easy action to take and one which many online sports books generally do.
The website is unspectacular and offers some stock photos of footballers and models to flesh out the home page. It is primarily in red and black which is effective in terms of contrast but fairly straightforward and lacking in imagination. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as most people don’t visit to be impressed by sleek design but the pages can be somewhat slow to load and on the whole it is not very smooth to use.
At the time of writing, BetBurn offer two bonuses; the one noted above and another Casino bonus which offers up to £1000. However, this Casino bonus was only valid until June 2017. It hardly speaks well of BurnBet that this offer is still listed on both the homepage and the Bonus section a month after it is supposed to have expired.
BurnBet offer bettors a fairly large sports market to choose from. There is a global feel to the markets on offer from American Football and Baseball to Cricket and Snooker, from Volleyball and Beach Soccer to Aussie Rules and Rugby, BurnBet probably have something for everyone. Moto Sports are even thrown in for good measure. However, fans of combat sports might be left wanting as there appears to be no boxing or MMA and such.
The soccer market is vast and covers leagues and competitions from across the world in addition to international ties, women’s leagues, youth competitions and friendlies.
As you should expect, there are a number of different bets available per sport covered from total goals to mix parlay, correct scores, HT/FT, matchtime and totals, all market, over/under etc.
Live Betting: This option is arguably the standout feature on the site. As might be expected given the breadth of the sports available, BurnBet offer a very good range of live betting options from a number of sports with an impressive number of bets available to those who like to bet with their finger on the pulse.
Registration: This is a straightforward process and seems to be industry standard in its brevity. Once registration is completed, you will receive an e-mail to confirm the details and to move forward from there.
Burnbet don’t offer a tailor made mobile app for their site nor do they indicate what devices are or are not compatible on mobile devices. For the purpose of this review, an android and iOS device worked quite well and their website responded positively. It is essentially their desktop layout fit for mobile and is arguably smoother and easier to navigate than the desktop site is.
Deposit and Withdrawal options
Fans of Bitcoin sports betting will be happy to know that BurnBet is a bitcoin sport betting site. In addition to accepting Bitcoin, BurnBet also accept EUR and GBP. Their homepage lists the deposit methods available and it includes MasterCard, Skrill, Visa, Maestro, Neteller amongst others. A minimum deposit of £20 applies.
Withdrawal methods include Bitcoin withdrawal as well through the deposit methods mentioned above. They have set a withdrawal limit of £500 per day with a minimum withdrawal of £20 per day. In terms of the timeframes involved, Bitcoin withdrawals through e-wallets can take up to 24 hours, wire transfer can take up to 2-3 business days and credit cards may take 4-5 business days.
Burnbet’s site notes that they have security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information that they obtain from customers but they don’t go into much detail beyond that as to the systems they use to maintain confidentiality or security.

Overall, BurnBet does little that makes it stand out from the crowd. In fact, it might be said that it is one of the least impressive sports books that we have reviewed in some time. From the beginning, the lack of effort put into the website itself does little to augur well for the rest of the content within. True, there is an large sports market available and the Live Betting option is decent but the site is clunky and pales in comparison to the efforts that many other operations put into what is a very crowded market.
