Nitrogen Sports are a Bitcoin-based sportsbook that accepts players from all over the world. Founded in 2012, they have quickly become one of the most trusted Bitcoin sportsbooks online. Although they have suffered from DDOS attacks over the past year, the site was only down for a few hours and all bitcoins in players’ accounts remained safe. The company is located in San Juan, Costa Rica and is owned by Ideal Media Incorporated.
Nitrogen Sports has a refined design and betting platform along with some unique attributes when compared to other sportsbooks that deal solely in bitcoins.
When a player visits the site for the first time, Nitrogen Sports assigns each individual computer (and user) a unique Bitcoin address and uses downloaded cookies to keep them logged into the site. This is all bettors need to transfer their Bitcoins over and begin betting, but Nitrogen offers several other layers of security.
This includes a unique NitrogenSports.eu address that will automatically log users in if they are on another device. They can also create a username and password (no email required) to add another level of security. Adding an extra layer is simple via two-factor authentication, which can be done through Google Authenticator and other applications.
Bettors can completely “sign out” of Nitrogen Sports, which would delete the cookies the sportsbook uses for identification from their computer. It is vital that customers either save their login link or add a username and password to be able to access their account again.
Another neat feature is the lobby chat room on the main page of the sportsbook. Customers can create their own aliases to chat with other bettors about the day’s games and cheer each other on. Nitrogen employees are also regularly active in the chat box in the evenings and are able to answer questions and handle support.
The percentage of Bitcoin sportsbooks that offer deposit bonuses is growing, but many still do not offer a free play bonus when players first deposit. Nitrogen Sports is one of these sportsbooks, but their overall odds make up for the drawback.
They do, however, offer a monthly parlay promotion where they reward players with the highest parlay payouts with extra cash bonuses on top. It’s an innovative move by the book, and something we have never seen before.
