JetWin is more or less your traditional sportsbook.
For starters, they accept more than just bitcoin. You can also fund your account using credit cards, e-wallets and wire transfers.
And all deposits –including bitcoin- are converted to USD.
They also ask for ID before paying you your winnings. Most enthusiasts would argue that this defeats the purpose of using bitcoin.
I would agree.
But don’t hit your back button just yet. There’s this cool thing JetWin lets you do that no one else does.
They let you have TWO accounts. One is your standard account, complete with your name, address, email, date of birth and phone number.
The second account can be your anonymous, bitcoin account.
It’s a pretty cool thing to allow you to do. And I think it’s enough of a reason to give them a chance. So read our review below and see what you think.

The 2nd Thing: Betting. What Can You Bet On?
All the popular sports. That includes:
- Ice Hockey
- Winter Sports
- Motor Sports
Depending on the sport you can choose from things like total goals, over/under, full time results, handicaps and so on. And from the sounds of it, they add more options every once in awhile. Just this past February (2014) they added options like first time to score, highest scoring period and totals.
What stood out to me is their ticket setup. Not so much the ticket itself, but how well it worked. All you do is choose the game, match and odds you want, and it’ll float to the right. Then you choose how much you want to risk, and they’ll tell you what you can expect to win.
Then just click submit.
It’s hard to explain; the software just worked really well. Go try it for yourself.
Site Note – If their software looks familiar, it’s because they bought it from the now defunct GetWin. They’re two totally different companies, though.
Do The Pros Outweigh The Cons?
So… is JetWin a solid sportsbook? Should you bother signing up? Let’s look at the good and the bad points
JetWin – The Good
- They have several bonus offers. I was even offered (the largest) one via email.
- They accept several banking methods – not just bitcoin.
- They let you have 2 accounts – one full account and one anonymous account.
- Withdrawals are processed in 30 minute time frames.
- They’re active in the popular bitcoin forums.
JetWin – The Bad
- JetWin converts bitcoin to fiat currencies.
- Players have complained that their odds are too high. Note: In JetWin’s defense, they have tried to lower the odds to be more competitive.
- The site doesn’t appear to be mobile responsive. Back in March 2014, JetWin said it was on their to-do list, but it wasn’t yet a priority.
My thoughts – I would give them a B.
The reason behind that grade is because we’re focused on bitcoin sportsbooks and casinos that accept bitcoin. JetWin is more your traditional sportsbook, between them requesting information and converting your bitcoin to USD.
They’re also not mobile responsive. That’s a problem, in this day and age.
What saves them – and ultimately gives them a decent grade – is that you have the option to create both a full and anonymous account. That way you can have the bonus and not have to give up information when you use bitcoin.
Who knows how much that really helps you. But it’s the thought that counts – and so far they’re the only ones who’ve thought of it.
