Lunar Bets Sportsbook Review
Lunar Bets is an attractive – yet simple – site that is incredibly simple to use. Though still a young sportsbook compared to other industry leaders (they launched in 2016), the amount of sports markets they offer are one of the largest in the business today.
They offer a wide variety of odds on different kind of sports going from Football to Major League Baseball.

As far as Lunar Bets coverage of sports is concerned, it can best be described as overwhelming – as in overwhelmingly great. Despite being a very young sportsbook they have gone all out in terms of the amounts of sports markets they offer once you register an account.
When it comes down to it, all of the betting markets that are offered by Lunar Bets should be more than enough to satisfy most bettors. As you could expect, popular sports like NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL and soccer are well-represented, but so too are even the most obscure of sports, such as cricket, eSports, darts, drone racing and curling just to name a few.
In terms of soccer, you will find a wide variety of betting options on any given day. This is because the sportsbook covers most popular leagues, including those leagues that might be considered “obscure” or off the beaten path. This is obviously huge because this particular sport is one of the most widely bet in Europe and is getting vastly popular throughout North America.
While there is no denying that Lunar Bets covers the more popular sports and leagues, that does not mean they forget or neglect some of the more aforementioned obscure sports aka “the forgotten.” In their offering you will find betting markets on sports like snooker, volleyball, cycling, badminton and even alpine skiing. Naturally, for these more obscure sports the largest number of betting markets tend to coincide with the sports’ respective most high-profile events
In all, we really do not have many complaints with regard to Lunar Bets total betting market selection. It really is one of the most impressive lineups we’ve ever seen from any sportsbook, let alone a bitcoin-only bookie.
Mobile Compatibility and Functionality
What we really love about Lunar Bets is their mobile offering. As is the case with most every other sportsbook, Lunar does not have a dedicated app that needs to be downloaded. Instead, you simply navigate to their site from your mobile device’s browser. If you have seen the desktop version of Lunar Bets, you will notice immediately that their mobile site looks identical. The simplicity of it all means that the same interface you are greeted with while sitting at a computer is what you will see on the screen of your smartphone of tablet.
An extension of the interface consistency between mobile and desktop sites is the fact that the functionality remains consistent as well. All of the tabs, buttons, and drop-down menus are not only located in the same positions as they are on the desktop site, they function the same as well. Rounding out their attractive mobile offering is that their betting markets are accessible from just about any type of device imaginable.
So long as the smartphone or tablet you are using is able to access the internet, you are able to access everything Lunar Bets has available. It really is that simple. What’s more, the straightforward user interface is something that lends itself to usability. So even if you have never placed wagers on a phone or tablet, the learning curve is quite small.
The only downside is that you still have to sign up and while the process only takes about a minute, it is still a little disheartening not being able to bet anonymously without an account like some other bitcoin sportsbooks offer. Other than that, this site is one of the nicest we’ve seen via our mobile devices.
In terms of bitcoin sportsbooks, the security it is able to offer the standard bettor is what separates trustworthy sites from those that you might want to stay away from. Lunar Bets makes it clear that they take security seriously, seeing as they offer you the opportunity to learn more about their site’s security directly on the homepage.
Like many other bitcoin sportsbooks, Lunar Bets utilizes a 2-step account verification process. This ensures that the user’s account as well as the bets he or she places are secure. In addition to the 2-step verification, Lunar Bets’ site operates with HTTP Secure and an SSL Certificate. This may all be foreign for you, but it is something that sportsbooks the world over are doing in order to beef up the level of security offered by their site.
In order to verify their use of HTTP Secure, all you need to do is look at Lunar Bet’s web address. Rather than “http…,” you will see that their web domain begins with an “https…” This hardly noticeable difference is what separates Lunar Bets from sites that cannot match their stringent security procedures.
No matter what type of bettor you consider yourself to be, it goes without saying that the security of the site with which you place wagers is of the utmost importance. Lunar Bets does its best to make it very clear that they do not mess around when it comes to the security of their site. This should allow you to rest easy and confirm for you that they have your best interest in mind, and will stop at nothing to provide you with a safe and secure bitcoin betting environment.
Final Verdict for LunarBets Sportsbook
It doesn’t take much digging to realize that Lunar Bets is quite new to the bitcoin sportsbook industry. Despite this newcomer status, the site has managed to really hold its own. Not only do they offer a wide range of betting markets with some of the best odds you will find online, they make sure that the full range of betting options are available to you whether you are sitting in front of a computer or betting with a mobile device.
The site itself is incredibly easy to use, and the mobile version looks exactly like the desktop site. We can optimistically say that we are really looking forward to what this bitcoin sportsbook has in store for the future.
