Depositing at Sportsbet.io
Depositing bitcoins at Sportsbet is as easy as you might expect it to be. Because Bitcoin is the only accepted currency at this point in time, it almost goes without saying that deposits happen instantaneously. Literally, it takes only mere seconds for you to deposits funds into your player account.
When it comes to withdrawing funds, the story is more or less the same. In a matter of seconds your withdrawable funds can go from your player bankroll directly to your Bitcoin wallet.
As far as the sports betting markets covered by Sportsbet, even the most demanding bettors will have few complaints. The fact of the matter is that every major sports league, as well as most lesser-known sports in general, are fully covered. When you log onto the site, you are immediately greeted by live events where betting markets exist as well as upcoming, popular betting markets. Beyond that, a drop-down located on the left side of the homepage can direct you to your desired league or event.
As far as what sports, specifically, are covered, the list is quite long. Popular sports such as basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer are covered in detail. When it comes to soccer, it would be easier for us to name the leagues and events where there are not betting propositions than it would be for us to list all of the betting options that exist. The same can be said for baseball and hockey, because Sportsbet offers props from leagues all over the world.
Lesser-known sports are not neglected by Sportsbet. Floorball, handball, rugby, and MMA are all listed as betting markets covered. When it comes to these sports, however, the number of betting options pales in comparison to what you might find for the NFL or MLB. In terms of these lesser-known sports, the fact of the matter is that only the most high-profile events tend to be covered.
Rounding out their sports offering is the existence of live betting. As was mentioned previously, live betting options are the first items that greet you when you log onto the site. On even a slow weekday, there are plenty of live betting options from which to choose. On weekends, and at times of the year where high-profile sporting events are taking place (eg. March Madness), there can be an absolute plethora of live betting propositions.
Mobile Compatibility and Functionality
If you thought we were fans of Sportsbet’s desktop offering and site setup, we are over the moon about their mobile offering. As has become standard with regard to mobile sportsbooks, Sportsbet functions as a web-based app. In other words, there is no application that needs to be downloaded. By simply navigating to their sportsbook on your smartphone or tablet will bring you to Sportsbet’s complete offering.
What’s more, it really doesn’t matter what type of device you are playing on. Whether it is a smartphone or tablet, Apple, Android, or any other operating system, you will have no issues accessing Sportsbet on the go. In fact, one could argue that the mobile version of Sportsbet is a bit cleaner than the desktop version. The look and feel is identical, but the entire offering is fitted into a smaller, easier to use package.
At the end of the day, absolutely anything that you can do via the desktop site (place bets, place live bets, deposit, withdraw) can also be done by way of the mobile-facing web-app. The functionality of their total mobile offering cannot be beat and should be used as a guide for other Bitcoin sportsbooks to follow.
The colors are vibrant, the layout is beyond stylish and professional and most importantly it’s just super easy to use and navigate around. With the tap of the finger you can check out the live betting part of the mobile site, as well as check out the casino games and other featured events that Sportsbet.io offers. The dev team did a solid job with this particular part of the site and it clearly shows.
Something we did not like about Sportsbet is that they did not get too much into their security offering on the site itself. Despite this, their web domain operates with HTTP Secure as indicated by the “https…” that precedes their web address. Though we could get into the finer details as to what makes HTTP Secure exactly what it is, all you need to know is that this is becoming an industry standard for sportsbooks of literally every variety.
Beyond that, the site is based out of Curacao; something that, in and of itself, should give you a bit of peace of mind. Curacao plays host to a large helping of sportsbooks and online casinos, and the one thing they all have in common is that they are regarded as safe and legitimate. Licensing is a stringent process that takes months to review and the committee they have is looking over every possible thing to ensure that they’re giving their stamp of approval to a safe, secure product.
The site also uses added verification during the signup process to make sure that your account is always safe-guarded. Signing up takes seconds but it’s the fact that your account is completely safe that makes this site give you a little bit of added peace of mind to your betting experience.
Sportsbet.io also uses the same type of secure technology on their mobile site, which allows users to place bets quickly and securely, especially when they’re on the go! All in all, I give this sportsbook a 100% stamp of approval and you rest assured your bets and account are always protected here.
Deposits and cashouts, although closely monitored and reviewed by security (only for larger amounts), take only 1 to 2 minutes to clear. Support is also on call most of the day and night and can reached via live chat, email or social media (ie Facebook and Twitter).
Final Verdict for Sportsbet.io
All things considered, there are very few negative things we have to say about Sportsbet’s complete offering. Their site is easy to use, signing up takes second and depositing/withdrawing is quick and painless.
If you add all this to their expansive offering of betting markets then you have yourself a Bitcoin sportsbook that serves as an example other sites should strive to follow. Being that the site was only established in 2016, we envision that the future is bright for this sportsbook.
